Seven Things I Love (10-26-2020)

1. This Short Film, The Magic of Chess – The Milwaukee Film Festival is running from October 15-29 and this year, for obvious reasons, it’s gone completely virtual. Frankly, I’m thrilled because it’s giving me the opportunity to see a lot more movies than I normally would be able to see. Because of that IContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (10-26-2020)”

Seven Things I Love ( 10-19-2020)

1. This Music – I’ve been working on this playlist for a while and although I don’t think it’ll ever be finished, at least I feel it’s good enough to put on my blog. Over twelve hours of my favorite tunes from the past fifty years (with a few outliers from before I was born.)Continue reading “Seven Things I Love ( 10-19-2020)”

Seven Things I Love (9-28-2020)

Sorry guys, lots of videos this week but I had no choice, they are all just TOO good. 1. This Kindergarten Teacher, Mackenzie Adams (and a NY Times article that includes Adams and some other extraordinary educators is here.) The video shows that to teach virtually a teacher has to put in about 300% moreContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (9-28-2020)”

Seven Things I Love (9-21-2020) : RBG Edition

1. This Excerpt from an Op-ed by Ruth Bader, Grade 8B1 which she wrote for her school paper in 1946 at age thirteen (found on brainpickings): Now we have a fifth great document, the Charter of the United Nations. Its purpose and principles are to maintain international peace and security, to practice tolerance, and toContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (9-21-2020) : RBG Edition”

Seven Things I Love (8-24-2020)

1. Olive Oil Dispensers – I’ve been cooking more lately, especially since I signed up for Hello Fresh (will talk about that some time.) And a lot of what I am doing requires using a splash of olive oil. I buy my olive oil in a larger container (usually from CostCo) but those huge containersContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (8-24-2020)”

Seven Things That I Love (8-3-2020)

Well, I’m officially changing the regular Monday ‘5 Things that I Love” to ‘7 Things that I Love” since I’ve consistently had more than five things for the past few months. I’ve been hesitating do this because I didn’t want to commit to having more items each week, but it seems clear I’m having noContinue reading “Seven Things That I Love (8-3-2020)”

Five Things I Love (7-13-2020)

1. Hamilton Mask-Up! by the Holderness Family – Do you have Disney+? Did you get it just so you could watch the new Hamilton movie? I actually already had Disney+ (got it for The Mandalorian) so I watched Hamilton on the day it premiered, July 3rd*. SO GOOD! I was lucky enough to see HamiltonContinue reading “Five Things I Love (7-13-2020)”

Five Things I Love (7-3-2020)

I decided to put this out a little early because of the holiday. Turned out to be all videos this week. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July! ENJOY! 1. This Comedian – HEY, I’m a new old person! Though I don’t think I’m going to be sitting around talking to anyone in 50Continue reading “Five Things I Love (7-3-2020)”

Five Things I Love (6-29-2020)

1. This Census video – I don’t think they could have found any better spokesperson than the Count and his pals at Sesame Street. Have you completed your Census yet? 2. These amazing photographs – A collaborative project, CreativeSoul Photography and LaChanda Gatson, makeup artist and hairstylist, created these stunning photographs of Disney princesses reimaginedContinue reading “Five Things I Love (6-29-2020)”

Five Things I Love (6-22-2020)

1. This Doritos commercial with Lil Nas X and Sam Elliott – Sam Elliott is 75 years old and still sexy as hell. (And yes, I know that isn’t actually him dancing, but I don’t care. I’m going to believe it is.) Yowzah – I like dancing cowboys! 2. Sam Barsky – oh to haveContinue reading “Five Things I Love (6-22-2020)”
