Question: Which TV shows have you seen every episode of?
Answer: As far as I know, I’ve seen every episode of only two shows: Seinfeld and The Big Bang Theory. Interestingly enough, both shows are really about nothing – it’s all about the characters. To me, Big Bang was the modern day Seinfeld, which is probably why I liked it so much. It was always amazing to me that they could take ordinary, everyday stuff and turn it into a 30 minute show. If you every see me flipping through channels, I will typically stop at those channels that have either one of those two shows on TV. I don’t watch a lot of TV (maybe 2-3 hours a week at most), except when a special event – like the Masters Golf Tournament – is on TV. Of course, if it’s a choice between watching golf and playing golf, I would most likely choose to play golf. Last Sunday, I actually played 12 holes of golf, then came home and watched the last 4 or 5 holes of the Masters, which to me is the best of both worlds! But reading something inspiring is always a better choice than watching something on TV, that’s for sure. As I’ve mentioned before, I also will watch Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, but that’s only when I really want to veg in front of the TV – and that’s happens maybe once every couple of months. Not really a crime fan, but there’s something intriguing about SVU that I just love, love, love. I haven’t seen every episode, but I’m guessing that I’ve seen at least half of them – which makes it fun because when I decide to binge on the show, it’s usually episodes that I haven’t seen. And that’s about it for me and my TV watching.
Read a really fun (at least for me) article about life. Although it’s focused on people in their 20’s, many of the items on the list fit for people in their 50’s and 60’s as well. Here it is:

I noticed a few that I need to learn in my 50’s, such as “You have nothing to prove” and “You are your own worst enemy.” And there are many great words of wisdom that we can all practice, whether we are 20 or 50 years old.
