Redneck Picture in Picture

Please read this post in its entirety before looking at the picture.

Over a year ago B.A.R.'s co-worker was retiring and moving to Florida.  He was offering up unwanted furniture pieces for reasonable prices (read free).  Since we didn't have an entertainment center, just a coffee table, I thought this would be a great time to move the electronics out of the reach of our current and future children.  We only had one small problem: our TV (the second free one) was a 21" model and the cabinet had room for a 42" screen.  BIG HOLE, small tv.    Thus it has stayed for 16 months or so.

When B.A.R.'s other friend moved he gave us (free) a 21" TV.  It has been sitting on the floor for a couple of weeks.  I went to church yesterday and left B.A.R. home with Tiger because he was sick.  When I came back this is one of the changes I saw.
My new 42" television can watch a DVD or VHS movie or play PS1 while watching cable channels.  It can watch 2 channels at the same time with sound for both of them.  Channel surfing can be accomplished twice as fast.  You can watch a movie during the commercials of the shows you are watching.  You can have one show on while you surf the channels for something better to watch.  The combinations are almost endless.  I am still getting used to "redneck picture in picture."

The best part may actually be the look on Tiger's face when both of them are on.  He is so confused about which one he is supposed to be watching, or which one has the sound on.  That is great entertainment.

Maybe we should get 2 more 21" TVs and see what happens.
