OK.. Well, we eat mostly with the TV here... We have a little table in our living room, so the family of 4 mostly eats there! Sometimes though, we eat in a our big table dining-room, although we don't do that much.. Weird. Heehee.. It's just too awkward without a TV blabbering in the background.

How about you? ;D

 When the kids were small we always ate at the table in the Kitchen as We had no Dining room. No Tv in there but we always had the TV on in the other room and could heard in the kitchen. As adults and older children they were always spread out watching tv while they ate. If I took the time to cook a big nice meal I expected them to come to the table and it it! LOL I liked family dinners at the table! Once a month I would make a fancy dinner very elaborate new fancy dish and then really deck the table out with table cloth the china, beautiful goblets and the candles and centerpiece...as if we had gone to a fancy restaurant.... They were expected to have decent manners at the table and we had fun and enjoyed good conversation music sometimes and wonderful chatter about everything..what we all wanted to do etc. or how things were with each of us.LOL That was my monthy fix for never doing anything.. It was in place of going out and spending money or movies etc.. It was actually very nice.. NO TV at all on those special nights! We even dressed up! LOL...

i don't have a dining room table. there's no room here. so i eat on the couch. and i can't stand silence (or the newlywed couple that lives below me) so the tv is always on. whether i'm paying attention or not is another story

Now, I am totally the opposite. I need complete quiet when sleeping as I don't sleep too well.

Even a radio on low disturbs me.

That is amazing I might go nuts without sound when I first go to sleep! After I fall asleep then quiet is ok.. It is the getting there that is so hard!

As much as I love tv, I hardly watch anymore as I love being here better. I really would love one here to see during the day also.

I always do, simply because the only table we have in the house is in the living room with the tv. We did have a big table in the kitchen but we took it apart so all our bikes would fit  ::)

A mate of mine had his bike stolen, but luckily he had it insured. The insurance company told him how much he was going to be awarded, so he ended up getting a 1400 bike  :o
