One of the cable channels has old Gunsmoke shows which I like if there's nothing better to do. But they have so many commercials that the shows don't even start or end at the hour or half hour.
I'm with you about reverse mortgages. The closing line is "you continue to retain complete ownership of your home". what a bald face lie! If you have "complete ownership of your home" why couldn't you sell it again? They try to make all the commercials sound like they're looking out for you when it couldn't be farther from the truth, as I see it.
