Just in Time for Christmas

If your family enjoys movies like ours does, you very well may get frustrated with the language in most films. A few years ago we discovered a solution: Curse-Free TV. This little gizmo plugs into your television and reads the closed captioning, bleeping out or substituting unsavory words. CFTV not only removes cursing, but also potty talk and other words you might not want your children repeating. In one film I remember, the movie character's CFTV-edited line was, "She just doesn't have any *hugs* appeal."

CFTV has been a boon for our family because it's allowed us to enjoy films we'd otherwise have to pass on because of the language used. I liken it to the magic marker work my mom did in books when we were little. The stories were just as good with the bad words blacked out.

You can buy CFTV at Wal-Mart or Lifeway Christian Stores for under $100. It would be a great gift for your family or someone else's this Christmas.

Hey Stephanie! I am glad you got a blog, as I had just been thinking the other day that I wished we kept in better contact. Perhaps this will help.

We use something called clearplay which uses a special dvd player that acts as a filter. You can choose what to filter out. We've been very happy with it so far. The only inconvenience is having to download the filters onto a CD to load into the player. But even that is not so bad.

Glad you're doing well!

Hi Skye! I was just thinking about you the other day as well. It's so good to hear from you! I hope this will help us stay in touch too.

Oh my! I just looked at your blog and Emma is so adorable! I can't believe how big she is already.

I'll have to check into Clearplay. We're always on the lookout for family-friendly products. Thanks for the heads up.
