I am of that 14% since 1964! I couldn't stand not having a TV in the kitchen, where I spend most of my time, cooking or not. (that's what italians do - live in the kitchen, no?)

Okay on #s 1 & 7 only.
Thanks, lt.

No tv in the kitchen since the family room and kitchen are kind of one room and the tv is easily viewed when in either! Only got 4,6, and 8 today!
