Another change is the TV programming. We're now into the fall season of television. We have Dishnet for two of our TV's and Verizion HD for one. Yes, it's too much! We now have what amounts to nearly 1000 different channels. And yet, we can never find anything we like to watch! There is just nothing interesting on. Anything that might look interesting comes on around 9:00 or later. . .we go to bed no later than 9:00! We tried to DVR it and wound up with hours and hours of programs on our DVR that we never got around to watching. So, we live with the football games, occasional Nascar or Outdoor channel programming and then there is Ghost Hunters. . .A couple of years ago, I discovered Ghost Hunters, which is on the Sci Fi channel. Can't explain how I found that since I don't typically like Sci Fi stuff. But, Ghost Hunters was interesting because they show a lot of historical places and they took a scientific approach to looking for other worldly things. And they tried to debunk it. They didn't just accept the fact of a ghost! So, when they came upon something, it seemed more legitimate. The Ghost Hunter season started a couple of weeks ago. So far, I am not impressed. They seemed to have caved and are now accepting anything as proof of a ghost! I am disappointed, but will likely continue to watch in the hopes that they will go back to how they were.
Speaking of ghostly things, a couple of weeks ago at church, Aidan was looking up at the dust motes that were rising in the stream of light toward the ceiling of our church. I looked up in time to see him looking up and then he waved and said "Bye, bye!" I immediately had a chill on the back of my neck! Our church building is over 100 years old and the congregation has been around since 1732! Creepy!
This weekend is my company picnic. It will be Saturday afternoon on the Shenandoah River. Aidan is ready!And, I also have to share a picture here of Pat. This was taken when he was 3 or 4 years old and given to me by his dad. Isn't the resemblance to Aidan uncanny???
And a final note on the music for today. . .This is a funny song that kept coming up while we were in Russia. . .I mean it was all about all of the changes that happened after the collapse of 1989. . .but the funny part was that a group calling themselves The Scorpions was on tour in Krasnoyarsk while we were there! Funny. And now the winds of change are affecting the whole world again. Winds of Change. . .they never cease, do they?
