So whenever we go to Best Buy, Kent always jokes and points to some gianormous flat screen TV and says, "We'll take one of those!" It's become a joke with us since we haven't had cable since ... EVER ... and our TV was the free one I took with me from my parent's home back in 2001. Keep in mind, my parents were never what you called, "Up and with technology". We only got a touch tone phone when they realized I couldn't register for classes when I started college! I would bet you anything they still have their rotary phones! Needless to say, this TV served your basic needs, but that was all we really ever wanted. Neither of us has much time for TV and I prefer reading anyways. But it is our only source of entertainment and we wanted it to last until our 'moving' days were done. Alas, it was not to be and in this last move, we discovered a extremely loud buzzing noise that increases with the brightness of the pictures. If all movies were filmed at night in low lighting, we wouldn't have a problem ... but since we got a netflix membership and are watching all our old childhood movies, we were rather disappointed. We read the subtitles for the last movie and while that's a great way of combining my reading with our entertainment, it does get a little tiring. ;0) So Kent did some research and we now take the time to bid fond farewell to the old, and welcome in the new!
Unfortunately, after we hooked it up, a buzzing sound still remains. We think it might be the DVD player ... it's off to Best Buy we go ... AGAIN!
