Although I haven’t watched live television in many years, I do enjoy a good series on DVD, and am blessed with an awesome public library that offers many shows in their entirety.
Recently I stumbled onto a lovely British television series that my husband and I really like. “As Time Goes By” features a couple who were once young and madly in love, but separated by a war and then a lost letter. Years later, after she has been married and widowed, and he’s been married and divorced, they run into each other again.
The humor is often subtle, and the relationships among the characters quite realistic. Unlike many American comedies, the humor doesn’t hit you over the head. You have to pay attention. I also appreciate that each episode doesn’t end up neatly tied with a bow.
If you’re looking for something light and fun to watch, give it a try!

In a similar vein, the women involved in the recent “Day Without a Woman” also failed to reflect many of us. Check out this article by a homeschool mom for a different viewpoint.
It’s easy to find people who have been stopped by a challenge. It’s a lot harder to find someone who overcomes a challenge, especially when they’re elderly. Here’s a lovely article about a woman who is bedridden and stuck in a nursing home, and how she has discovered that painting is enjoyable and helps her pass the time.
Recent years have seen far too many college grads working as baristas or retail clerks because they can’t find work in their majors. The idea that you must go to college has finally been turned on its ear. It’s time for parents to point their teens in other directions.
Here’s a transcript of a speech given to teens by a mechanic. It’s quite interesting, and well worth your time, especially if any of your kids are good with their hands.
