Stuck Inside

Posted by Gaylord Campbell

With the seasons changing, our weather has been unusually gloomy for about a week now. I usually love to be outside walking, running, biking or hiking every chance I get, but with this gray weather, I just haven’t been in the mood. Lately I’ve been watching much more television than normal and I’m pretty unimpressed with the programming on all the major networks. I’ll flip around for 20 minutes before settling on something that is interesting enough to watch. I think I’ve seen Kim Kardashian say “I do” about 5 times already. When I’m not watching television, I’ve been doing other equally unproductive things like playing on Facebook and reading blogs. I don’t know what I’d do if it weren’t for my Crystal Texas Wild Blue Service. I have access to news, email and my beloved social networking sites that is reliable and affordable. It also gives me alternative sources of Kardashian information, so I can know the stuff the E! is leaving out. I wish I was kidding, but this is who I am and how I spend my time when I’ve been trapped inside.

PBS Kids- The ones who have not forgotten

Guest post from: Steve Delaney

My favorite educational channel is The PBS Kids channel. I just love that there is a channel out there that is dedicated to training and educating our young children. These kids are our future and so many times we forget to consider their needs, especially their educational needs. Well, PBS Kids is one channel that has not forgotten the need to educate our young children. In fact they are dedicated to this goal and have found very effective ways to do it.

From their ever famous Barney show to their classic Sesame Street, PBS Kids has been dedicated for years to educating our young children. This is why I admire them and why I choose them when I sit in front of my satellite television from http://www.tvbydirect.com/directv-deal/TEXAS-TX-direct-tv.html. I love to see the happy look on the face of a child when they are watching their favorite PBS Kids program. Even more so I am happy to know that while they are being entertained, they are also learning. The skills they learn and the knowledge they gain from PBS Kids will last them until adult hood. It is such an amazing foundation that PBS Kids establishes with our young children.

I love turning on the satellite television and anticipating what great show is going to come on that will wow and woo children. This channel is worthy of a legacy and that can not be said for most television channels.

Stock footage from Revostock

Are you a video maker or advertiser looking for Stock footage? As you know stock footage is used by film makers to supplement their filming. Often stock footage is used to provide shots of famous landmarks, cities, links between one location and the next. Stock video clips are a handy and quick way to provide necessary information for your video without having to take the time or expense to shoot a customized shot. For example if the setting is a New York Yankees baseball game, there would be stock footage of the outside of Yankee Stadium. This shot was used several times on Seinfeld for example, when George was working for the Yankees. To indicate we were going to George’s office in Yankee Stadium we would see the same shot of the Yankee Stadium offices before seeing George in his office. With one quick stock footage shot we knew where we were.
