Trash TV

You’ve heard, a casualty of the Dtv transition is old TVs. People are buying new flat screens and their old TVs have nowhere to go. Pawn shops don’t want them. Charities won’t accept them. Even friends and family say “no thanks.” So they end up in the free-please-take-me bin or as it’s better known, next to the dumpster.

I saw these on a Saturday morning run. The one in the shopping cart is a Dora the Explorer set. Sunday both TVs were still there, but the shopping cart was gone.

Wanna free TV? No thanks, but I will take this broken down shopping cart.

Get Real (estate), Why don’t people trust real estate agents?

Yesterday, while on a morning walk, I noticed “REDUCED” had been added to a real estate sing. The house has been on the market for a while.

The new page just had it marked up to $189,900 and crossed out.Isn’t that fancy.
