So I’ve been in a battle with my friend Vertigo for the last week. HORRIBLE!!!

Ive been sitting up most of the time because to try and lay down would trigger the spinning. I had my pillows staked so high to get a few hours of sleep at a time. I was not in the mood to talk to anyone so its been audiobooks and tv shows.

Do you know….it’s impossible for anyone to keep up with all of the new and old tv shows? I have hundreds of channels and I discovered so many new shows while I was down and out. There is a network called Outside that has the most amazing shows about life outside. Hiking….traveling on foot and bike….living on a boat…..I guess it could be a channel for dreamers. We have every pay channel you can imagine and I never watch them. The only reason we have them is because its a package deal that comes with extremely fast internet. My son is a gamer so speed is important for him. And since he pays for it…..I can’t really complain about all these wasted channels. But not only do you have your cable provided networks….you have shows on Netflix/Hulu/Amazon/Apple….and we have all of those and some also. So one day I went through and clicked record on all the shows I had an interest in and went to the other channels to start watching other shows I had an interest in. My DVR is almost full and there is no way I can watch all those ….and I am retired. I couldn’t imagine all these shows when I worked. I don’t think you would have much of a social life if you watched so much tv. With so many shows out there…..the average person can’t keep up…so how can shows get nominated for awards fairly? You don’t have to answer….I am just typing what is flying through my head. Anywho….

My favorite shows during the Vertigo bout were the old cooking shows on Create Tv which is a PBS station. These two ladies are so fun to watch..

I for some odd reason watched a lot of old television on “This” and “Antenna Tv” networks. Shows like the Avengers, the Saint, Father Knows Best. Yes….I can be nerdy. And it gets nerdier….I love the Hallmark Channels so I watched the Autumn Movies and Holiday movies and old episodes of Hart to Hart. Jennifer Hart was so pretty and classy.

Oh…cant forget Carival Row on Amazon Prime. I watched 3 episodes and love this show. I hope to finish the 8 episodes some day soon.

Ok….its getting late ….3am! ha! I actually started writing this 3 hours ago but kept getting distracted. I guess I should have posted this in the Forums under TV and Movies. But I don’t think I want to chance copy and pasting this elsewhere. I am not that savvy. Besides…theres only maybe 7 regulars here….I am sure you don’t mind 😉 I have more shows to share but I need to get back on some kind of sleeping schedule now that my world stopped spinning.

Hope everyone is well…….
