Santa came early for my hubby this year because this just wasn't going to fit down the chimney or under the tree. He has been wanting a big flat screen TV forever. We've had our nice big boxy one for a long time, and I thought it worked well, but you know--it's a guy thing. I just said "get what you want honey," because I really have no clue when it comes to LCD/LED/plasma (huh???), and so we ended up with this 55" monster. Oh my. But I must admit it is pretty cool watching Blue Rays on it. We are so high tech now, and I have to rearrange all the pictures on my wall. Thank you Santa.
