Mental Doodlings – Really? In celebrating Britian’s vast history, the National Health Service (NHS) is a cultural pearl for the Olympics opening?

by Skip July 28, 2012

For whatever reason, I am just not “into” the Olympics this year – but TMEW is.  In fact, the cable box DVR is getting an upgrade to a multi-room simply for being able to store more HD content AND the ability to record more than two channels at once (as multiple outlets are reporting on […]
