cucumber time

After about two months nothing on the television or only repeats; all the normal programs will be back on Monday. In The Netherlands we call this period cucumber time. I think because in the summer the cucumbers are growing and in that period everything is at a low level. They must have combine these two things in cucumber time; they time that there is nothing news or nothing on the television. Of course the advertisements are not getting so much attention because a lot of people are on vacation and there for they don’t show expensive programs.
