We enjoy "Buying Alaska" so much. The prospective buyers tour 3 homes/properties, to look at, with a realtor, and at the end of the show, they make their decision.

DH loves to watch "America's Funniest Home Videos." :lol: It's on now, he's LOL from the great room, and it's funny!

We love to watch "Ice Road Truckers," and "Alaska, the Last Frontier," about a homesteading multi-generational family. It's very , very good, we learn so many new things about survival, crafts from the past, etc... The scenery is beautiful, too. The family they feature are such very nice people, too.

I've been leafing through magazines, tearing out articles, things of interest for pen pals and family, and purging them. I'm currently reading a booklet on worry, which is Biblical-based.

We continue to watch the baseball play-offs.

Tonight, it is NCIS and CSI-New Orleans. Then, we'll watch Person of Interest. These are on CBS.

We'll try to see a bit of Jimmy Kimmel at 11:30 p.m. if we can. A Bob Seger is the music entertainment tonight. Since the elderly Bob Seger is deceased, we wanted to see if this was his son. :?:

Last night, we watched "The Amazing Race," on CBS and then we watched 2 hours of a cable-TV show called "Gold Rush," which is a reality show about gold miners, at their claims. It's very interesting. Thankfully they BLEEP out all their cussing! :roll: :!:

Today, we've been watching football games.

We'll watch a movie at 8 p.m., called "Lone Survivor," with Mark Walberg. It's about 4 Navy Seals in the mountains of Afghanistan, with a botched mission. True story. It's on HBO.

Later tonight, we're watching boxing matches at 10 p.m. - 12:15 a.m. Undoubtedly, I'll be sleeping in until 9 a.m. so I can get up to see a sports pro-football panel talk on the Fox Network.

We'll watch the Seahawks at 10 a.m., play St. Louis Rams. (I hope we win, (Seahawks), because we lost at home last week.) :cry:

I have been engrossed by news stories on Ebola in the us how it started spreads and what we learn through this.

Last night watched U-tubes with hubby on Jeeps.

Watched a new series on cars but could not stay up for the second show fell asleep bc I was up so early.

I have enjoyed various shows on roots and family tree research. Looking forward to the one on CNN Tues.

I'm watching the HD Hallmark Movie Channel this afternoon, in our MBR, while I do Christmas crochet. Next movie up is a remake or a more modern story of "The Seven Year Itch." It's description on the TV Menu said it's about a woman who wants to get married, but her friend tells her she's already in a common-law marriage, of 7 years! :o It's a romantic comedy, I believe. A good clean movie, being on Hallmark, too. ;)

Your shows sound good, Nancy. On FOX's network this a.m. at 8:30 a.m., they talked a lot about Ebola, too. It's sad how it's slowly spreading, but nothing like it is in Africa! :!: :shock: :( I feel sorry for the Texas nurses and now a lab tech, who handled the deceased man's blood in the lab, who was on a cruise ship. So far, she's not showing any symptoms. I think our Nation should do a TV special, to help calm fears, of Americans, too, all about Ebola. :idea:

Our Seattle Seahawks lost again. :cry:

We're watching "America's Funniest Home Videos" tonight. It's just too funny! :lol: :lol:

From 8 - 10 p.m., The Discovery Channel has "Alaska The Last Frontier" on it. It's about a mulit-generational family who are homesteaders, with farms, they live "off grid," and it's a very good show. Wholesome. :D

Tomorrow, my new book arrives, by Kathryn Vercillo, called "Crochet Saved My Life: The Mental & Physical Health Benefits of Crochet, ". I can hardly wait to open the pkg. up and start reading it. :mrgreen:

DH is watching a documentary on the Earth on the History Channel-2.

We're going to watch The World Series' pre-game shows and the game, when it comes on tonight. We're rooting for the Giants. At least *I* am! :!: :P

DH is watching The World Series & when the U of W Huskies play Arizona State (in our STORM!!!) in Seattle, at 7:30 p.m., DH will flip back & forth. The game will be over (football) around 10:30 p.m. He's looking to see if there are any boxing matches on then. But he doesn't sound too thrilled about watching them, he sounds like- as he's looking at the menu.

I'll watch "My Boyfriends' Dogs," on Hallmark's channel tomorrow night at 9 p.m. Pacific Time. It's about a blonde woman (who plays the attorney DD on "Parenthood") & she gets a boyfriend, they break up, & she adopts their dog. She ends up with a lot of dogs, but the TV ad shows her with a vet, so I think she falls in love with the vet AND he falls for her, because of her love for dogs. It sounds cute, light, & romantic.

I read on "Everybody's Got Something," by GMA's host Robin Roberts, "Simple Kabbalah," by Kim Zetter, and "Crochet Saved my Life: The Mental & Physical Benefits of Crochet," by Kathryn Vercillo today. :mrgreen:

We're going to watch The World Series in a little bit, but wanted to see the local & National news first. We'll watch "CSI" at 10 p.m. We'll watch "Alaska the Last Frontier," at 9 p.m. on The Discovery Channel. It's about a multi-generational homesteading family. Very good.

I liked Candleford on PBS Sunday on afternoons.
We watched a movie on net-flicks.
I like a couple of shows on CBS on Sunday nights.
Giving myself a break from knitting need to rest my arm.
