Thanks Mom and Dad!!

My parents got us a kick-ass housewarming gift. A new TV!! An awesome 42" LG LCD flatscreen plus a mounting kit plus an HDMI cable to be specific. Soooo cool!! We love it so much. It was a definite upgrade from the old TV we used to have where the sound would go out sporadically until you shoved a matchbook underneath the audio cable. Not on this one! Jeff got some pointers (and tools) from his friend Marc that sets up a new flatscreen about every week at Joe Hahn's house so he was able to do it himself. He got it up on the wall and hid the cables in the wall and into our components in the cabinet below pretty easily, it was just figuring out the cables and jacks that took a little time.
Jeff had all four toolboxes open for this one. It was an intimidating project to start, but he was a champ, followed directions, and pulled it off!

Doesn't it look great!? We found that danish credenza at a consignment shop here in Long Beach for only $50! It was exactly what we were looking for. Something low and with cabinets long enough to house the DVR and DVD player and our movies. We're enjoying it right now though, watching the Plants episode of Life on the Discovery channel. Perfect way to wind down a busy weekend...

GREAT job, Jeff--and I understand Liv provided at least moral support, right? Looks fantastic and hope you both get a lot of pleasure from this. I have GREATLY enjoyed ours. Diana also, to some extent, but she does not watch soccer as much as I do on the Sony 42"; not sure why!
