although you DO get the occasional Ham Radio TV-DX signal on VHF TV (if you`re lucky enough to still have a working model).
I knew you would have the answer, YT. I remember?, back in those days, the inside of grandma's tv had tubes, and the channels went from 2-13 -- was there a #1? don't recall.

In the Northern Hemisphere, cyclonic storm systems (which include hurricanes) rotate counter-clockwise
My washer spins clockwise and the water drains counterclockwise. I have heard that with some recipes such as pudding or mayo that if you start stirring clockwise you have to continue in that direction and if you change to counterclockwise you will ruin it. As in pudding or mayo if you switch, it will become runny. If you are right handed you swirl a whisk clockwise and if you are left handed, you swirl it counterclockwise???

I got 18 but was surprised. I'm very forgetful in everyday stuff. Like what was I saying?
