Some shows, the sound quality is so poor that I can't understand what is being said unless I crank up the sound to a level I'm sure the neighbors must be able to hear. I'm hoping the bluetooth adapter will resolve that problem.
Thank you! It was just a bog standard enter your details and good luck kinda thing! I in no way thought I'd win. Funny story, I actually deleted the email saying I'd won thinking it was spam, 5 days later they emailed me again asking to confirm otherwise they'd pick another winner. Luckily I actually read that one!!!
I've got it in my bedroom, which isn't exactly huge, so being this up close with full HD goodness is amazing. I used to have a 22" full hd tv before getting this, and I thought the quality on that was great. But those extra 10" make the biggest difference! I'm in love!
I use headphones with it too. I have an extender cable for a decent Sony pair, I just hate tv speakers, I find most of the time the quality is really rubbish. Talking will be too quite/sound effects are too loud and vice versa. Like you said, to get it to a decent sound, it needs to be quite loud, which I don't think my neighbors would like either!

Yep, in most shows, the talking in the show is muffled and so indistinct that I can't understand a word of what is being said unless I crank it to silly levels. I love my bluetooth headphones! They work to about 100 feet, so I can walk all over the house with them on without losing any of the show.

A few years ago we had fires raging through the central region of our province (several years in a row actually but one particularly bad one). Firefighters from all over the world, mainly Australia and the States, came to our aid. We lost a few of our own and the memorial service was attended by no less than 3,000 firefighters from all over North America and the world. It was very touching indeed. I am glad we reciprocated.

That's awesome. Might have to get me a pair of those!
I love technology. Some might even say I'm a bit obsessed with it! I'm not one for surround sound systems though... Don't know why but it just doesn't interest me.
Currently working on my blu-ray collection. I love it!

I totally relate, Alix! Three years ago when we had our sewage flood we were waiting on the different parties to decide who was responsible for what, and then for them to actually do the work. Finally, waiting, as you are, for the inspectors. I would raise my cup of decaf latte to you, but unfortunately my Tassimo decided to not cooperate this morning (see that thread) and I will be spending a half hour cleaning it and then won't have time to relax with a cuppa!

I am going to meet a young woman for lunch today I mentored her through our youth group while she was in high school but have not seen her for several years. We connected on Facebook and she wants me back in her life.

Here's the ones I have. They're also rechargeable and when you get a call, it stops the music or tv and you can answer by tapping the headphone. When you hang up, it resumes what you had on before:
Motorola S305 Wireless Headphones

I'm extremely pleased with them!

Downloaded a Jacquie Lawson Advent calendar onto grandson's laptop. He's having a ball with it.

We are going to cook our lunch together. We are cooking our lunch together today. We are making mac and cheese with hot dogs in it.

Andy, do you have the link for that? I would love it for my neighbour's granddaughter. She spends a lot of time here playing on my computer. I love Jacquie Lawson's work.

There are two advent calendars and a bunch of other stuff on the site. Here is the link for the "Village" advent calendar.

Advent Calendar Download

There is also a "London" calendar. There is a $3 charge for each download.

Andy, you're such a good grampa! Your grandson is lucky to have you.
