Some of the selections seem to be based merely on a mention of the original movie or the actors in it. All About Eve generated Jungle Book as a recommendation, apparently because George Sanders also did the voice of Shere Khan in the original and this was mentioned in a review of same. Other selections seem to be Read more

As a hungry preteen, I was obsessed with Trader Joe’s (now discontinued) Hot & Sweet Mustard. I was hot. It was sweet.

So how do you “drop” music files onto your iPhone if they’re personal digitized sound files - e.g. an old recording of your mother’s voice, or a downloaded podcast file that’s no longer available via podcast apps?

I love maple sugar, but it’s hard to find even up here in Canada, unless you’re visiting sugar bush country. Also most people who didn’t grow up with it seem to find it “too sweet”, whatever that means! Eyeroll! Read more

But landlords have scant motivation to put money into such improvements. Our building’s roof has a dark gunky surface that readily soaks up the heat of the summer sun. (I know for sure because I live on the top floor, and whenever it’s windy, the black sticky gunk flakes off and lands on our apartment balcony, and we Read more

This is wonderful! Seriously - I know this is an older piece (updated here and there), but it’s incredibly valuable. Saving this now so that I can take it to my (new) doctor and start filling in all the blanks that started accumulating when my previous doctor took early retired 3 years ago.

The Canadian Red Cross is the worst. They are always sending packages filled with cheap promotional goods (personalized notepads! ballpoint pens! cardboard coasters with birds on them!) and loads of shameless bumph (a certificate that says you! donated! money to them!!!). It’s clear they’re spending a lot of donor Read more

LibraryThing was the first such service of its kind, and I got on board with it then. Many people went over to GoodReads, but I liked LT enough to stick with it - partly because of its immense flexibility (I also used it to track our video library and so forth), but also because the developers were so responsive. Nice Read more

Good news about The Good Place season 4! Hopefully it’ll become available on Netflix Canada too. That show was a welcome discovery during the depths of COVID lockdown earlier this year. I can’t wait to see the last season.

I have a dear friend who from day 1 of lockdown kept fantasizing that this’d be over in a matter of weeks. I suggested she assume an end date of 2021 (at best), just so she wouldn’t feel more depressed as each week and month ticks by without a vaccine. Of course, if somehow it’s over before then — gravy! Better a Read more

I completely agree with you and would give you all the stars except that for some reason I don’t seem to be able to star people at the moment :)
