Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
See?  It's really interesting what different people will notice.  I didn't even think about the televisions, although I keep my own TV relegated to a remote corner of the apartment where I have to go out of my way to watch it.

I did notice that most of the families don't have alcohol on display amid the groceries, or at least not much of it -- bottle of wine here or there.  The exception is the German family, which has four bottles of wine and 20 bottles of beer.  That family also has (I think) the highest weekly food expenditure.

(The Mexican family also had what might be beer bottles next to the sodas, but it's hard to tell for sure that's what they are.)
