Do You Still Touch It???

So, I'm sitting here engorging my brain with volumes of useless information from the internet, and as usual I have my little TV on. Anyways, Everybody Loves Raymond is on and as it's going to commercial, one of the characters voices comes on and says "Everybody loves Raymond will be right back........DON'T TOUCH THAT DIAL!" And I'm thinking, geeez, it's been years, possibly decades since I've touched a TV dial. Even if my remote control didn't work,I still wouldn't have a dial to touch. I have 3 TVs and none of them have a dial........it's all buttons to change the channels and volume. Do you still touch "THAT DIAL" or have you finally advanced beyond the 70s??? *special note to Irishfrndly: yes darlin' I know you don't watch TV, so instead of responding here why don't you go back to your little house on the prairie and make us all some pie???*

Hi hair! I figured you'd turn up somewhere in a discussion eventually! ;) Are your knobs already polished ? or do they need a good rubdown ?

Hah, you may not have any dials, but it sounds as if you're pushing Irish's buttons... My tv's don't have dials, but my stereo does. Does that count?

Yes it counts...........as long as you don't touch them.

These days, Sconi, my policy is to not touch ANYTHING. With my luck, it might go off!
