    I think when TV hits the level it is now where there's too much choice I think quality suffers. That to me is what's happening.

    In any case I'd rather go see a comedian or watch one on TV than watch a funny show. I'd rather go to the theater than watch something on TV or the movies.

    But that's me.

    I'm not fan of TV or movies. I sort of grew out of it and I don't know why that is. Not sure how I got to this point.
    There's too much of a push for tratings because people's attention span is now so short. Some of the stuff I chuckle about in real life aren't things I want to see on TV.

    Still fishing for topics...

    Hey Rue, what's the housing insecure/homeless situation like in France form what you've seen?
    Around near my work there appears to be a small number of homeless but as you may have guessed it's not always easy to know. I'm in the outer suburbs of Paris or Isle de France.

    I haven't been in Paris enough to know the general state of things there but we have seen what we feel is quite a bit of homeless sleeping areas.

    Here's an English French news site with some info.

    Numbers are up here but I know they've also risen in the UK as well.

    Numbers are on the rise here as well. It's a pretty complicated topic here, where there really isn't that much affordable housing. I like the city but man, if you don't have the "right" amount of resources here, you're screwed.

    It's the same for London and Paris.

    The UK in general suffers from housing shortages and homelessness.

    I'm not sure about the rest of France though. I know there's a rise in immigration from Africa, etc but not sure what affects that has on housing in those areas.

    There are parts of France that are practically empty and towns that are dying due to reduction in population.

    Im not a big Korean TV fan, but I do occasionally watch some of their middle kingdom period series. Not as nitty gritty as Vikings but its fun in small doses!!

    My mum is 92 and loves korean drama esp the modern day soaps. My sis inlaw watches tv with her late in the evening. My mum is totally deaf in one ear, needs a hearing aid for the other. Neither understands Korean, so they watch the shows dubbed in Malay language with English subtitles!! It's a weird.
    I once put on Train To Busan, and my mum totally enjoyed it.

    Both Pixel 3a are sitting sealed in their boxes. No time to set either phone up.
    Almost 8 months without a Pixel. That's probably a new record.

    Speaking of TV Series.
    Just finished Widow on Amazon, nice show, definitely recommend.
    Going to start watching LA's Finest next.
    That one was a bit difficult to find since it is a Spectrum show.
    Also we started watching a Hindi show on Amazon called Mind the Malhotras and it's quite funny.

    So I'm home. Quick unboxing photos and first impressions.

    Not as big as I thought it would be. As you can see it fits easily I'm my hand.. it's lighter than I thought as well. I like how narrow it is. Feels comfortable. Well balanced.

    I'm giving it a charge so I can set it up.

    Wow, it doesn't look as massive as I thought. I'm looking forward to your impressions.

    Are you going to transfer everything over?

    It looks like they took a Z Ultra and cut off about 46%. Very nice.

    (the better question is does he miss the camera. If Google does the same tricks with a dual camera setup, he'll pick up a Pixel 4)

    Shutdown week is coming. So who knows I might set one of these up. One might go to a family member.
