Happy New Year! (in bullet form)


  • If you are an occasional slob like me, you probably have had to trash shirts because of a grease spot smack in the middle of the front. A friend recently clued me in on how to get rid of such grease spots: Lestoil. (Sheesh. The current price is half of what I paid on Amazon a couple months ago.) Friend said that it even gets rid of grease spots from several years ago; word. I tried it on such spots and they are gonegonegone!
  • Gonna make this for dinner on New Year’s day. I will let you know how it turns out Since I do not care for brie, I plan to sub mozzarella, plus some cheddar. And sub cooked loose Italian sausage for the bacon. And we do not have any fresh parsley; not sure if the closest supermarket even carried Italian flatleaf parsley, the only kind worth eating. So I only kinda gonna make the videoed dish; found the actual recipe here.
  • Have you read Franklin’s column on buying gifts for a knitter? He starts out all practical and goes from there.
  • I now have my own page in iMDb!
  • Places to watch Jeopardy online:
    • There is a Jeopardy sub-Reddit that has a daily recap.
    • A commercial-less captured video of nearly every day’s episode is here.
    • I am told that it is available on Hulu and that if you have Amazon Prime — and who doesn’t? — you can add Hulu for free. Haven’t been able to figure this out for myself yet.
  • When I won the first game I kept saying, “Holy, sh!t, I won!” all the way back to the green room.
  • Have a safe and happy and healthy new year, everybody!

    Happy New Year! We use Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap on grease spots, and it never fails!

    It appears I need some Lestoil in 2019 – a lot of Lestoil!

    Also, thanks for the link to Franklin – that list is most excellent, and hilarious!

    Woot, congrats on the iMDd page! (And the Jeopardy win!)

    Lestoil, huh? I think I need to look into that…
