  1. Well crap! I logged into Netflix last night and found that there were only 3 new episodes (I was hoping for 6-8), so my Black Mirror fix only lasted a little over 3 hours last night. I've enjoyed all the stories, but my favorites were all in Season 3: "Hated in the Nation", Shut Up and Dance" and "San Junipero".
  2. Black Mirror is one of my favorites. I was really pleased this morning to learn the new series has been released. The only thing I'm not wild about is I'll be through the entire series in the next 48 hours or so, then I have to wait a year for the next round of stories ūüôĀ.
  3. Nothing like a Griswold Christmas, but last year I did a double feature with Home Alone & Home Alone 2.
  4. I fell for the TV ads and bought a Dyson upright on sale at Best Buy several years ago. It really sucked (which is usually a good thing for vacuum cleaners) but it didn't do a very good job of cleaning dog hair from my carpets. The water tank vacuum is probably a Rainbow. The only way to get one is to have a salesman come to your home and do a demo. Back in 1980, one of my students had just started as a part time salesman and I agreed to have him come over to do the demo so he could practice his sales pitch. He vacuumed once over about a square yard of carpet and the clear water that he'd used to fill the tank had turned into sludge when he emptied it out. I didn't have $1000 to spend on a vacuum cleaner at the time or I would have probably gotten one. No way I'd spend $2500 today.
  5. I watched three documentaries on Sunday. One was really good, one was kind of OK and one left me feeling "why did I waste my time on that". It turned out to be more like an infomercial than a documentary, so finding a documentary film that's worth waching can be a challenge. The Full Frame Film Festival shows an outstanding selection of documentary films each year. The archive section on the website lists all the films they've shown for the past 20 years. Find something there that peaks your interest then search for it on Netflix (or other streaming video sources). Maybe you'll get lucky.
  6. The guy with the tambourine looks like he's really having a lot of fun!
  7. I generally end up skimming (or skipping over) "stream of consciousness" narrations. I don't need to know the menu for every meal or what designer label is on the clothes the character is wearing every time they change. If it doesn't contribute to the progress of the story, leave it out.
  8. Just in time for Halloween.
  9. I got fiber-optic internet service installed yesterday (glass all the way to my house) and life is good.

  10. My go to cake these days is the Smitten Kitchen's recipe for Chocolate Stout Cake. I use Highland Brewing Black Mocha Stout, but any chocolaty stout should work. It's really quick to mix up.
  11. Debt free at last!  No mortgage.  No car payment.  Just what's on the credit card (but that doesn't count since I pay the full balance each month :2thumbs:).

      Nice! :D That's a great accomplishment.  Congratulations! 

  12. If you can find it, Grannick's Bitter Apple might help with the chewing. My first Labrador puppy was a chewer. I ended up spraying this stuff on furniture, clothes in the laundry basket & myself. The only thing he would still chew after it was treated were my smelly running shoes.
  13. Google "flavored whiskey" and hold on to your seat. I'm guessing that some of them are inspired by liqueurs (e.g. Drambuie or Southern Comfort) while cutting back on the sweetness. Others are just trying to be trendy.
