    In April, my mom and I enjoyed this show (prior her passing)


    so there is some emotional/sediment history for me, personally..


    >BUT, now watching the show on my own..and I have noticed in the


    summer 2012 season ( airings) it "appears" to be the customers have


    increased the "NO" ( and some are polite, "No thank you" )


    -


    Also: since day1, I have ALWAYS been LEEEARY ( or weary)?/ lol of the


    "specialist" they bring in - not in the case of the Atlanta Braves ring, that


    actually supported the idea of a specialist, but in GENERAL:



    Quick Example:


    If I have an tickets to a major league baseball gamebetween two losing teams


    late in the season, who are NOT playoff bound - and for all-intentsive(?sp) purposes:


    it is a meaningless game, >BUT> then I bring person # 2 - and SAY this GAME has MERIT and VALUE


    and will be hailed as a Classic (prior to the game being played)


    ...Because I am a credited- to say so, and (IN ACTUALITY) this "expert" works *FOR ME* now you


    have worthless tickets being VALIDATEd to have a "SUBSTANTIAL Dollar Amount " which may


    raise the PRICE on otherwise "meaningless tickets"


    >Well, in reverse, the same thing is happening::: An Item, example: has a real worth $2,000 -


    BUT the SHOP has an "expert"putting a CAP on some thing at say, $750 - now the customer


    can't "haggle" anymore than 800 dollars, and the shop will drop and they will likely settle on $ 500.oo


    (which in this case is only 25 % the value of what could be the amount they 'could be' awarded)



    but all in all, as a casual fan, I like this show!
