I'm grateful for the blinds in my house. There are things that occasionally occur in my home that I'd rather not share with an entire city block. As an example, I doubt anybody in the world needs to see me hula-hoop on the WiiFit. The blinds protect me and our entire neighborhood from embarrassment. And contrary to the popular belief that cleaning blinds is a chore akin to torture...cleaning your blinds requires only a few simple steps.
