Seven Things I Love (12-21-2020): Christmas Edition

It’s almost Christmas, YIPPEE!!!! I want to thank my friend Ann who was the person who shared a few of this week’s ‘Things I Love’ with me. Thanks Ann! 1. This Suffragettes’ Christmas Card – Savvy Twitter users who could read music noticed that the music at the bottom of the card was actually forContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (12-21-2020): Christmas Edition”

Seven Things I Love (12-14-2020)

1. This H&M Christmas Short Film directed by Wes Anderson – I’m a fanatic when it comes to anything Wes Anderson so it’s rather shocking that I missed this advert from 2016. (Though it is also very possible that I have simply forgotten it. Damned menopausal brain. Though on a bright note, if I didContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (12-14-2020)”

Seven Things I Love (12-7-2020)

How is it already DECEMBER???? 1. This Tea Party – Truly amazing. I belong to the Facebook group called ‘The Gilded Age Society.’ The Edwardian Era has always been my favorite time period, even before ‘Downton Abbey’ was a thing. Recently a young person name Paul Ryan T. Co, who is also a member ofContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (12-7-2020)”

Seven (+2) Things I Love (11-30-2020)

Seven Things I Love (11-23-2020)

1. This Millennial Explaining Why People Use the Word “Verklempt” So Much – (I need to mention this article is two years old. Not that it matters.) Things like this makes one feel old. This young whippersnapper clearly never saw “Coffee Talk with Linda Richman” until she started researching this etymology. You know, as aContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (11-23-2020)”

The Menopausal Broad’s Guide to the Best Holiday Movies You Can Stream in 2020

These are in no particular order of preference. How many have you seen? Get Santa (Netflix) – charming Christmas movie with a Paddington-esque quality (they were both released in 2014) where things go quite afoul for Santa. But with a little help from his friends he manages to make his deliveries on time. With JimContinue reading “The Menopausal Broad’s Guide to the Best Holiday Movies You Can Stream in 2020”

Seven Things I Love (11-16-2020)

1. This Video of Angela Lansbury & Carol Channing – it is a performance recorded back in 2001, when Lansbury was 76 years old and Channing was 80, at a benefit for the Actors Fund of America. The event was called ‘Tap Your Troubles Away with Jerry Herman.’ Jerry Herman was the wizard behind theContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (11-16-2020)”

Seven Things I Love (11/9/2020)

1. This Colorized Video from 1893 of a Snowball Fight – done by Dmitriy Badin – I’d mute the video, the music is a bit annoying. It’s delightful to watch thought. (I prefer the way Denis Shiryaev creates his videos. He goes the extra step of adding sounds that match whatever is taking place, forContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (11/9/2020)”
