Charmion, welcome to the world of visual "accommodation." The reason we all wear bifocals after a while. My phone gets a morning news alert from the New York Times but I have to remember to put on my glasses before I read anything on the phone or I can't focus clearly on distance for a while.
Moving the TV here (the large one in the den - I am embarrassed to admit how many are scattered around the house) is a big job. That one that is connected to the Internet by cable, and the only option would be to move it to the other side of the den where there is another port (years ago the kids' computer sat in that place, a public room for doing homework until the youngest was here by himself and up so late doing AP homework that I wired his room and moved the computer in there so he wouldn't wake me.) I have the TV running through the receiver that has lots of other stuff connected to it. Moving the whole lot (and running speaker wires again) is just too much to contemplate. I move the small TVs around regularly.
Dorothy, I enjoyed a Google Earth tour of the Beaver region with all of the left behind lakes from the glacial era.
I still haven't found the telescoping microfiber duster, but it's time to dust entire rooms again, not just the ceiling fans, so as I work my way through rooms (wearing a mask to avoid a sinus headache) I'll keep my eyes open for the no doubt hiding-in-plain-sight duster.
