It's Turn off your TV week

April 24 - 30 is Turn off your TV week - did you know there was such thing? - did you know there is even a website for this? (click the previous link)

Is anyone doing this? What do you do instead to fill time?

How much TV do you normally watch in your family?

Here's an interesting anti-tv site:

Here's a site that says the "grass-roots" campaign won't make a difference:

I think we should have a national turn off the computer week!

Yikes, maybe civilization as we know it would come to an end! Okay, I'll settle for a once-a-month computer fast! ;)

We don't watch TV, except the 700 Club at 2 p.m. each day if we're home - great news and features. We don't have cable. We have 2 computers set up in the family room, which are used most the time and 1 computer not on internet in the rec room. A computer fast at least once a month sounds good. jill

If we turn the TV off- we stop schooling. We did away with "regular" TV some years ago (I can't remember how many)- I just remember my oldest (now 12) was very young and I was even finding most commercials offensive- so my husband and I decided it was easier to turn it off than to constantly screen it.
Enjoyed your commentary- thanks for visiting me :)

I turn off my tv every day...sometimes several times a day. ;-)

I wish my dh and I were on the same plain for this. He thinks anything is fine and I want to throw the tv out. :-D We're working on it. We used to have no tv. Now that was when life was fun. We played games every night after dinner. *sigh* the good old days.

As for the computer...yes, the world would end as we know it. Shoot, we couldn't even go out to eat because none of the cashiers would be able to make change without one. hehehe
