Let's Kick the Can


Henry Thoreau: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation”  
Well music can not only help soothe the way in this cruel world, but make you really feel better.   

Remember the classic Twilight Zone episode, "Kick the Can?"
In the story, one of the geezers realizes that if they would all just move for the pure fun of it, the joyful feeling of youth would return. They would literally turn into kids again!

As an old geezer myself, I have found out that dancing is a great way to feel like a kid again. Studies have found that dancing is the best physical activity.  Its even helpful with Alzheimer.  Pandora is my favorite way to enjoy it, or even Youtube. Just make sure that you play it loud!  If feeling a bit shy, just lower the curtains to keep you hidden from pesky neighbors!

 and no matter what, remember to Bloom Where You are Planted!

Better Home and Garden Scent Bursts Review

It is hard to find products that work exactly as we want.  I love a nice scent at home; but candles are expensive and have fumes. I had tried hot waxes but found they take forever to warm up. Forget using it often in winter.

I thought those were my main choices.   However, these Better Home and Garden scent bursts are fabulous. I only sprinkled a little bit on the warmer, and wonderful light fragrance enveloped the room right away. The lilac is refreshing and I am now planning to try every scent.  I am having a problem finding them though. I like the ones that are loose, not that compact ball they also have.

Now that I found it, I hope they keep making it, because I can't go back. I don't usually put in ads here, but I enjoy it so much, I wanted to do a scent bursts review.  


Mr. Robot, and old school sci-fi that makes you think

There are two kinds of sci fi fans.  The first kind is happy with spectacular special effects. Then there are the fans that want to see reality in a new way.


Just started watching Mr. Robot.  Never saw Rami Malek before, but he is perfect for the role.  He plays a flawed programmer that protects a large corporation from hackers.  If you are a closet nerd this one is for you.
Rod Serling's Twilight Zone.  Ahead of its time in every way.
 You will learn more about human psychology here than anywhere else.
Original Star Trek.  Captain Kirk was the hunk. However, Spock was a complete revelation. I do have issues now with the sexist tone of the program. Something I did not realize when I used to watch years ago.

FireFly.  This little underrated gem had just the right quirks, (they would throw in some foreign language, Chinese, I think). It shows in a playful way what a real leader should be. Their take on the "companion," is also brilliant.  They are all available for streaming on Netflix.  Enjoy your binge watching!
