Turn Off Your TV week

It's Turn Off Your TV Week.

It would be nice if more people were aware of the merits of turning off the tube - if only for a week - so this is my contribution.

Read a book, go see a play, take a walk, sit in the park. Just stop slumping.

I used to be able to say, truthfully, that I turned my TV on every two or three months and worried that it might burst into flames from all the dust that had collected in the back.

When I sold my house - nearly three years ago - I threw away my ancient idiot box and bought a modern flat panel machine. Now I only turn it on every two or three months but I no longer worry about it bursting into flames because there is no back in which dust can collect.
