Why DVDs are Still Important

by Molly Jo Realy @RealMojo68

Okay, y’all. I admit. There’s a lot to be said about streaming videos. No extra clutter on the nightstand or when traveling. No storage issues (well, at least not at the house). And super bonus: no “ohmagosh where I did put that?” Or super-super bonus: no breakage.

But there’s something to be said for getting your entertainment the semi-old school way. And it comes with its own bonus.

Now, I enjoy Netflix as much as the next person. I mean, how many of you already know when Stranger Things Season Two is available? [Here’s a … read the rest. . .

I have a list of favorite TV Shows. While it’s no secret that FLASHPOINT tops the list, the remaining Top Ten tend to blur together. My order of preference depends on what my mood is. Generally, you can always interest me in watching any of the following:

Frasier reruns
Cheers reruns
Friends reruns
Blue Bloods
Once Upon a Time
The Waltons reruns
The West Wing reruns

Of course there’s many more. Anything … read the rest. . .

There I am, singing praise with my friends, and I’m struck with the overwhelming urge to write it out. I’m sure I was a bit distracting to those around me. It’s not unlike … read the rest. . .

Sick as a Cat. Dog. Cat.

There’s another reason Lizzie Cat has been extra cuddly and loving the Vicks VapoRub with me.
My pretty kitty doesn’t feel well. [You’re all “awwww”-ing with me, aren’t you?!]

She’s been a little more lethargic than usual, and a little more cuddly. A little warmer than usual.  And a little more cranky. She’s got Kitty Fever. So I’m loving that she’s letting me take care of her. My human child is … read the rest. . .

I Dream of George C. …

Every now and then I have some off-the-wall dreams.

Years ago, I dreamt (several times) that my friend Cynthia and I knew the people from The West Wing. Sometimes we were characters and sometimes we were actors and sometimes we were just part of the group.

Last summer I dreamt I was with the television writing crew for Flashpoint when one of the actors came up and instead of me being awestruck by him (although secretly I really was!), he just complimented me on my butter recipe and said, “You make great toast.”

There’s the one where I was a … read the rest. . .
