I don’t know what you pay for your television, but whatever it is, it’s too much! The junk that is on television is just that... JUNK! Long gone are the days of really good (CLEAN) family entertainment. The “REALITY” shows are nothing but reality! Real Housewives? I don’t think so.

September. What a concept. A fine month indeed. Number nine. And it always begins with a bang. Labor Day. The official end of vacation time. And beginning of school time.
