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 (10-5-2020): Gastronomical Edition

Okay guys, so I was collecting thing for my upcoming blog post and not only did I have WAY too many but a lot of them seemed to be food related so this week I’m posting two blogs simultaneously. Don’t worry, I don’t think this will be a regular thing. 1. This video showing HowContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (10-5-2020): Gastronomical 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)”

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.

1. This Artist and mother of two (Stefanie Trilling) who is taking classic children’s picture books and redesigning them for the Coronavirus Era… (You can follow her on Facebook or Instagram!) 2. Virtual Fireflies!– 3. This Internet Dad – I figure there are three categories of people who could find this endearing and informative Dad’sContinue reading “Five Things I Love (6-8-2020)”

Five Things I Love (6-1-2020)

1. This article about the Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle and Friends – I’m sure most of the rest of you menopausal broads (and even those of you who simply grew up as a Gen Xer) remember Bullwinkle, the good-humored moose and his best buddy Rocky, who happened to be a flying squirrel. My favoriteContinue reading “Five Things I Love (6-1-2020)”

Five Things I Love (5-25-2020)

With the long holiday weekend I almost forgot to post this. It’s Monday, right? (I have completely lost track of time…) This Roman Catholic priest in Detroit practicing physical distancing by spraying holy water with a squirt gun into cars – 2. This wonderful Google Doodle celebrating Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s 61st birthday. I’m a huge fanContinue reading “Five Things I Love (5-25-2020)”

Five Things I Love (4-7-2020)

Whoops, I missed a week. But I had some other things I had to blog about. I’m sure that it’s not the end of the world. I’ll have a doubly long list this week. 1. SomeGoodNews – John Krasinski (“The Office,” “A Quiet Place,” and “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”) has begun a YouTube channel/”network” dedicatedContinue reading “Five Things I Love (4-7-2020)”

Five Things I Love (1/27/2020)

1. I love making this recipe – In England this is called Toad in a Hole though I haven’t exactly been able to figure out the origin of the name. The “in-the-hole” part seems easy/obvious enough to explain. The toad part is what is eluding me. What I have found out so far is thatContinue reading “Five Things I Love (1/27/2020)”
