In Defense of Kim Kardashian West

I never thought I would ever have much that was nice to say about Kim Kardashian West. Though I never wished her any ill, I certainly wasn’t a fan. I’ve never watched a minute of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”. My eyes roll at most mentions of her and her family. I’ve been known to [ keep reading ]

Celebrity Skillz–They Do More Than Act!

I admit–I watch way too much TV. It’s easy to justify this by knitting and crocheting while binge-watching my favorite shows. I admire actors and their ability to make me laugh, cry and ponder. Sometimes, I get so lost in the entertainment that I forget actors are real people. WHAT??? Yes, sometimes, they do more than act! Jack White of the band The [ keep reading ]

I recently watched an episode of James Corden Carpool Karaoke that featured Paul McCartney as the special guest. It was truly my favorite spot, ever. I’m a big fan of Carpool Karaoke because I find it highly entertaining to see celebrities who are willing to be down to earth and silly for a few moments, [ keep reading ]

Lights, Camera, Action!

I live in an older neighborhood with a lot of fixer upper homes. Some of the homes have been updated, but others have not.
