I can picture Steve, waving a stick of bacon, like a magic wand; pixie dust coming off the end, when he says that. I'll try not to smoke to that.

That's Manly Mutant Pixie Dust mind you. The bacon is maple.

Speaking of maple syrup... I tried the real thing and was not impre$$ed. Prefer Mrs Butterworth Original.

Yep! We had a little bit of a break but suspect that's behind us now and full heat ahead. Ugh!
RVM2

Any other RVMs up for Roll Call? Some of us seem to have mutated into silence.

Oh! I do have something to report, but at the S&B. I'd handle it the same way in the coach though.

We "had" a plasma TV that was purchased 8 or 9 years ago, about the time when they first came out and Circuit City was still in business around here. It "had" a beautiful picture. It only had DVI input along with component and RCA. Rather archaic in today's technology. I had a bunch of spaghetti cables going every which way.

About 3 or 4 months ago I would casually state to DW that it would be nice to have one of the new state of the art televisions with WiFi, Internet, and a bunch of other neat "toy" things. However, I really could not justify buying a new on, especially since the picture was so good.

On July 3rd, DW calls me from the TV room and says, there is something wrong with the television. I go look and the picture screen is black - kaput - no picture. I unplug and a bunch of other things to try and reset it. No good. I call Panasonic and the technician says that if I can't turn it on he can't tell me how to reset it and gives me the address of the nearest Panasonic repair facility. It's just up the road about 20 miles.

It was DW's fault (always is) that the TV broke. I told her that she watched to much Food Network channel viewing.

However - Arrggggh! I feel a new, more advanced technology, TV in our future. Off to Best Buy, pick up a TC-P50ST60 and that evening we were back in business. Dumb Food channel is still there though.

Ah what the hey! Time for a new receiver also. The one I "had" was 9-10 years old. Fixed that also. Must have been the sound from the Food Network making the old one sound bad.

Anyone else having problems with their Entertainment systems from to much Food Network viewing?

Just askin'

Oh, and I got rid of 15 to 20 cables from the old system and now only have 3 HDMI cables. The ARC on the HDMI is just great. (Known as HDMI (ARC))

Ha ha! My entertainment system suffers from too much Final Fantasy, Skyrim, and whatever else video games my boys play. We never actually use the tv for watching tv.

And if I recall correctly - the RVM4 mutant house on wheels does not have a TV and you don't miss it!!

We do have quite a collection of DVDs, and about once a month we do a "movie night" with pizza & popcorn. For the most part, though, our indoor family entertainment consists of board games and playing cards, and everyone in the family is an avid reader.

Gee, now that I think about it, my kids are all mutants, too. Is mutantism genetic or environmental?

4kids, I think every RVM became so mostly on their own, the influences since joining this thread not withstanding.

Much of it has to do with upbringing and habits that are developed over time, that allow us to go with the normal flow of RVing to a point, but choosing personal ways to differ from the norm. Differing can also be part of an autonomic quirk that RVMs have; happens without thought; we simply Mutate! Thus, we are RVMs in different ways, and the same ways. I like that!

I put this on another thread, but it says a bit about the lifestyle. In this case, about campfires. Some like them. Some dont. Some wonder why we would have one if not cooking on it. Some complain of the smoke. Others like, even crave it.

Campfires are for.....

Late night stories, using the glow and flicker of the fire to highlight the menacing gestures in the real scary parts; the glow of the faces of children, the fire making the whites of their wide eyes glisten pinkly just before the horrifying finish; poking it with a stick and watching the last tiny embers twinkle like stars; the morning with the mixing smells and sounds of a campfire and an old percolator, crackling and bubbling; staring at the fire, having thoughts of everything or nothing as the fire performs its hypnotic dance.....

Studies to ponder this situation seem to have proved inconclusive. It could also be spontaneous mutation, having nothing to do with either.

Cheers!
