Have a nice knitted, fire proof, woollen cosy to hide your television, and keep it warm when it's not in use. Available in any colour or pattern, or it can have your favourite portrait machine embroidered unto its front.

My own is going to have a replica of a 1950s BBC test card, complete a shaggy pompom hanging down one side.

       Genius idea - and I know some grannies who might be able to lend a hand in making this reality.   

       Then, with our elderly workforce clacking furiously behind us, I believe we could make millions!

       I love it. We keep a shawl, lap blanket, or sarong thrown over ours as befits our mood.

       I've been thinking of crocheting one for the guitar that I keep out of case and on a stand. So bun for great minds thinking alike.

       Let's just keep it pulled down all the time, shall we? Imagine how many IQ points we'll get back.

       That one in last link seems to have some kind of corked "bum-stopper" on it...?
xenzag, Oct 18 2007
  

       It's a button, to fasten the cosy under the teapot's handle. I wouldn't like to speculate why a "corked bum-stopper" was the first thing to occur to you.

       I thought it might have been a novel way of evacuating the tea leaves, from what looks somewhat like an inflated duck.

       Isn't there some electronics rule that says don't keep your appliances warm? Overheating leads to damaged components etc?

       But you wouldn't cover it when it was switched on and if isn't generating any heat, insulating it will make it neither warmer or colder over long periods of time but would stop fire damage (at least until whatever the TV is standing on catches fire).
