Some of the improvements on modern TVs are not really improvements. My remote needs new batteries and I can't get them for a few days. There are no buttons anymore on the actual TV, you can't turn it on from there.

our TV still has buttons to turn it on and off, adjust the volume, etc.

Maybe there are some on the side of the TV? If it's a big flatscreen they usually put small essential buttons on the bottom right or even the back side of it.

Look up your make and model of TV online. I've never heard of any new TV that doesn't at least come with buttons for basic functions. It may even be a circular button on the back that controls power, volume, channel, etc.

I remember the old days where you had to actually get up and walk over to the TV so you could turn the vice grips and change the channel

Netflix took away my ability to make screen caps from their videos...

Amazon.com took away my ability to make screen caps from their videos...

Now iTunes has taken away my ability to make screen caps from their videos.

The only thing left is DVD's, and not everything I want to capture is available on DVD!

My daughter called me last night from where she's working as a barista. An old man wanted her to stir his tea with her finger because he wanted to see how sweet she tasted.
She said she was creeped out, and understandably so, he didn't bother her the rest of the night, but her and her co worker after closing went out to their cars together.
Sadly this comes with the territory with working with the public, and especially being a young woman.

Yeah, my girlfriend has had similar experiences. It's sad that this is "normal" but the service worker has two choices; complain about it and possibly get in trouble because you have to "humor" the customer, or keep quiet and endure rather icky behavior. Obviously if it crosses a line there's no choice but to report; but many guys are crafty enough to go right up to the line then step back, so they can later say there was "a misunderstanding".

Sad but true.

It is sad that this has become the norm, I'm sure she'll have more good customers than these creeps, and she did make her co workers aware of him so she does have them to back her up if by chance this guy comes back.

last weekend I had to go to the E.R. where I had to have a catheter put in, and I was forced to miss our reunion of all our cousins which I was REALLY looking forward to.
This is the 4th time since my operation in Sept. that I've had to go to the E.R. and have a catheter put in because of urinary retention, And now my urologist says they want to do a test to see why it's happening. I hope it's nothing serious; I'm scared.
Thank god I have Medicare.

Sorry to hear this! I'm sure you will be OK , hopefully just a side affect from the operation and you will not have to go through this much longer!

It's a shame you missed the reunion, but Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up soon, and you can spend lots of time with your family!

Prayers to you! Hope all goes well!

My daughter's cat died last night. She was 14. She had extra special meaning to my daughter, not to go into detail, but when my daughter was 4 she spent some time in the hospital. So when she finally came home we gave her a kitten.

That was not an easy call to make.
