Last Saturday was my birthday. Nearly 200 people sent their greetings through the computer.

Our screen-free week ended eight days ago, but I’m only now getting on here to reflect on it. Considering how it went, that seems appropriate.
Every now and then, our family takes a week off from TV.
It’s not a major sacrifice. We don’t have cable or satellite and barely ever watch broadcast channels. For years, we relied on Netflix, but we’ve even cut that. We have DVDs and occasionally borrow something from the library or a Redbox machine. We play a lot of Mario Kart Wii as a family. Nothing we watch has commercials, so on the rare occasions when we see one, we’re almost a bit confused by the interruption. Even so, we sometimes plop down more by habit than by choice.
