  1. Thank you. I haven’t had a TV since 1984.I gave it up as a distraction when studying for the CPA exam and never looked back. But this was well worth viewing. Aside from a healthy dose of laughter I is so accuarte. I don’t always agree with everything I read here but I read faithfully. If I stop reading because I don’t agree my mind is closed. And the information you provide is so well presented you often change my mind.

    That was brilliant. I’ve been TV-free for 10 years now so thanks for the share.

    I do wish they hadn’t lumped the “hugging your dog can be bad for the dog” part in with all the other ridiculous claims. That one actually had some truth to it. Not only can it be frightening to the dog, but it can also be bad for the person hugging them as they may be bitten if they don’t understand dog body language enough to know when to stop.
