Did you know???

Riding shotgun refers to the practice of sitting alongside the driver in a moving vehicle.

The expression was applied originally to the movie depiction of stagecoaches and wagons in the Wild West, in danger of being robbed or attacked. An employee or passenger would sit beside the driver, carrying a shotgun or rifle, to provide an armed response in case of threat to the cargo or passengers.

Finding the picture

fuzzy tv pictureI'm sure we have all had this happen at some point and it's such a simple fix it's maddening. You are housesitting, possibly babysitting or renting a vacation house...............

You go to settle in to watch something, anything on tv and there is no picture. You check that the cable box is on and the tv is on. What is the magic trick? On the t.v. remote there is an INPUT button. Push this and it will bring up a menu with all the components that are connected to the t.v. Make sure that the "cable" component is selected. Once you do this....VOILÀ, it should be happy viewing from then on.

This also works in the case of wanting to use a DVD player, etc.


If you for some reason you do not have the remote control, there should be a input button on the t.v. which should bring up the same menu.
