  1. Can’t wait! Love Home and Family. Kym Douglas is awesome and has the greatest DIY tips and beauty secrets!

  2. I would like to suggest that Hallmark Channel pick up Longmire. The demographic is right and it is a great TV series. A&E is discontinuing it because the average watcher is 60. It was a top rated show.

  3. The back ground music on your movies makes hearing the talk hard. My wife has a hearing aid and the back ground music bothers her a great deal. You have one of the few family chanels but we can’t watch it because of the music. Please tell me why it’s necessary.
