Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)

1. This Photographer, Kirsty Mitchell – she is possibly my favorite photographer and I was lucky enough to get to see an exhibit for her book “Wonderland” in 2017. And incredibly they allowed photographs! I purchased the book (a completely worthwhile investment) but I love that I have several gorgeous digital shots. Here are aContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)”

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.

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.

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.

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)”

Seven Things I Love (10-12-2020)

1. This Children’s Librarian – who set up the best display ever the day after the Vice Presidential debate. 2.

Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020

1. The Technicolor Fashion Show Scene from the original version of the movie ‘The Women’ (1939) – I suspect more people are familiar with the 2008 film version of ‘The Women’ starring Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. The casts of both films are entirely women, you never once seeContinue reading “Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020”

Five Things I Love (5/18/2020)

This article that compares people who refuse to wear masks to men who refuse to wear condoms. It’s freaking brilliant. Here’s the beginning of the article: Am I the only woman who finds a suspicious similarity between the excuses made by people who refuse to wear masks in public and men who refuse to putContinue reading “Five Things I Love (5/18/2020)”
