Falling in love with PBS all over again
I am a Sesame Street baby - I grew up on it. On "Electric Company". I loved Mutual of Omaha's "Wild Kingdom" which I always attributed to public televsion, but I doubt seriously if that's where it was showing.
With the new digital conversion, Oregon Public Broadcasting now has 3 TV channels and one radio channel and I LOVE THEM! I have taken to watching "Life in the Canopy", "Nature", "Frontline", "American Masters", "Great Performances"...any animal program...I love the CREATE channel - Cooking with Ming and the Test Kitchen...I love it all. I've seen specials on hippos (little scary) and how to move a rhodedendron...you name it...even "Antique Roadshow" is good, clean fun.
I gotta go to the OPB site and make a contribution. I have gotten so much pleasure in the last few months and I guess I would say that the last Hero I will honor this month (I know I got off the theme a while ago) is Public Broadcasting. May PBS and OPB continue on for many more years.
