Last Piece of Cheese | Next Piece of Cheese

I'm happy with my gift! I bought a new TV set, a Samsung LED with a 46" screen, it's 2.5 times bigger than the older one (it's also twice the price I intended to put into...) It's really movie-theater at home, OMG! Once connected and fixed, we could watch "Les enfants terribles" by Jean Cocteau, one of my favourite movies that was just starting, then we checked the quality of my old DVD recorder/player, still far better than I hoped, with a DVD of "Les tontons flingueurs", a classic of French humour movie. That's great! Doing happy Snoopy dance :o)

Thank you Arnold! I think I should watch my recording of Red Dwarf, the screen's big enough for deep space LOL

Big screens are great. When we moved to Bend after selling the SoCal house, I did something I never would have imagined back in the days before I had any disposable cash: I bought a big-screen TV, though a modestly-priced one. I hardly ever watch TV, but I figured that if I wanted to watch a movie, it would be nice to see it at a decent size. And it really does make a difference.

Happy Birthday!!!

I'm a telephage, and I watch a lot of movies, as I'm stuck here with Paul. He even (reluctantly) agreed he could read the subtitles. Maybe he'll watch a little TV now instead of spending his day to snore or watch the clock to know if it's "time for soup"... I made a movie marathon yesterday, Final Fantasy VII, Immortel (Bilal), Volcano High and some eps of Planète Océan...

Thank you for your wishes, luder... And yes, it's my dream TV. I won't need a retro-projector with that one, it's really BIG!

Very nice present indeed.

I see Pomponnet couldn't resist getting in the picture :)

Of course, he's never far from me, or from events happening. As long as there's no vacuum cleaner involved...

WOW! It's gorgeous! If the picture looks that good on my computer screen, I can't even imagine what it's like in person. Good for you. I'm glad you treated yourself to something really special. You sure deserve it! *hugs*

LOL at kitty. She certainly seems to approve!

Thanks Lorelei for a big hug. Yup, Pomponnet doesn't watch a lot TV but when I'm shooting something, he thinks it's right to be in the field. He's the star, isn't he?
And right, the picture quality is excellent, when the original is. I mean, following channels, it's more or less good... But with a commercial DVD, the quality is stunning.
