We do have the local channels via our rabbit ears. Surprisingly good reception so long as not too many cars pass behind our house. Once or twice we have taken turns standing on one leg with a hand in the air while touching the left ear of our rabbit. That is the most reliable of the reception. And the one assuming the position burns an extra calorie or two.
A few months ago Gene purchased a bluray disk player with internet capability. That means with a simple telephone line attached to the correct slot, we can play Netflix on our living room TV. With this option available, we have been watching lots of movies and documentaries. One series is "Wild China". What an amazing part of planet earth. Such rich history, traditions and wild life that are facing the same pressures of time and space as our life on this side of the Pacific.
