These products came in quite handy and came very close to saving us from potential doom. The little Go LED lights are fantastic and last forever, and they're cheap too. I think this 4-pack was somewhere around $2-$3 at Target. I keep one in every room. You'll never own another regular flashlight or have to light candles when the electricity goes out again!
The battery-operated TV is a life-saver when the electricity goes out, especially if you live anywhere where tornados or hurricanes abound. It's kinda handy if you're away from home and NEED to see what's going on in the NASCAR cup race too! If you buy one now, be sure and get a digital one. The other ones, like mine, won't work anymore after February 2009. We need to go get a new digital one before they jack the prices up, if they haven't already.
Mark, you need to get a new big TV! You won't get any American Idol after February. Get to crackin' before they jack those prices up too! Rabbit ears, indeed. Welcome to the 21st Century. And get some satellite TV while you're at it, or at least some cable. Do you even have running water or electricity yet? Hee.
I'm off to my d-d-d-d-doctor appointment. See ya!
