Seven Things I Love (7-5-2021)

1. This Announcement that Pinterest Has Banned Weight-loss Ads – Pinterest is the first (and only) “major” social media network to ban weight-loss ads. Why is this a big deal? Not only does it end the constant promotion of the messed up theory that people (women primarily) can only be attractive if they are “thin.”Continue reading “Seven Things I Love (7-5-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (5-24-2021): History Edition

1. This Patent Drawing – Which finally puts to rest the question over or under. I don’t mean to gloat but I KNEW IT and my Mamma never lead me astray. From My Modern Met: Over or under? This is the question that has plagued the Western world since the invention of modern toilet paper.Continue reading “Seven Things I Love (5-24-2021): History Edition”

Seven Things I Love (5-3-2021)

1. This New Rollin’ Wild Video – The first new ‘Rollin’ wild’ film short in THREE years. And was it worth the wait? I think so…. I laughed my buttootie off!

Seven Things I Love (3-22-21)

1. This VACCINATED Menopausal Broad – pardon my hair, I forgot to fix it before the photo. You can’t see it but I’m both a little teary-eyed and overjoyed. Not surprisingly, I’ve been reading everything I can on the vaccines and post-vaccine life and I found this excellent article in the Washington Post. WashPo hasContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (3-22-21)”

1. This “Personal Library” – housed in his home, WOW! I wonder what his house looks (looked) like. Right after college I landed a job at a wonderful bookshop called Webster’s. It was originally like something out of a movie. (I say originally because it kept expanding and became less and less charming.) Anyway, oneContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (2-22-2021)”

Seven Things I Love ( 2-1-2021)

1. This Tap Dance Performance – no words necessary. 2. This Geode that Looks Like Cookie Monster – for some reason I can’t get this Instagram link to post so I’ll just put the link here. It includes an awesome video of the geode! 3. This New Movie on Netflix, The Dig – based onContinue reading “Seven Things I Love ( 2-1-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (1-4-2021)

1. This History of Chestnut Trees – this actually is something to both love and hate. I hate the story behind why we’ve lost the vast majority of the American Chestnut trees in North America (not surprisingly it had to do with some wanker deciding to import a dozen Chinese Chestnut trees to the USContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (1-4-2021)”

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)”
