Christmas comes early

The wife decided to get some of her shopping done early at least as far as the family was concerned.
For over a year I have been watching a TV where the picture was in shades of green due to a surge that clobbered the tube. Being as I was out of work at the time and have been catching up since a replacement has not risen to the top of my priority list yet. I was very surprised when she came home last week and handed me a reciept for this Panasonic 32" HDTV and told me to pick it up whenever I had a chance.

I was overcome, picked it up the first chance I got and have been enjoying real color ever since. It is wonderful to watch my Babylon 5 DVD's on something other than my 17" computer monitor.

Update: In order to get HD with this monior, even though it says it is HD ready, you need to buy a separate box which sells for $200. I checked with Dish and they told me that they would rent me the box for free when I bought their HD package which costs $9.95 per month. I am going to hold off on that a while since there is not that much I watch that is on HD but since I will have to pay the $9.95 anyway when I decide to get it it's nice to know that I don't have to pay another $200.
