YouTube - Because I'm Trying to Watch Less TV

So occasionally I go through these mental zones where I feel like I should watch less TV.  Usually when I'm feeling guilty for not working on my writing.  And lately in my effort to watch less TV I find that I browse YouTube.  Thanks to Hernameisbuffy I've found a whole plethora of British history sorts of shows.  My latest find is Restoration Home.

Spoiler

 

 

As someone who used to watch This Old House (honestly I prefer the Bob Villa era) this is even better.  No, I don't have any grandiose ideas about doing this sort of thing.  I just like watching it and getting another facet of history.  

I'm also on a music video bender having fallen back into Queensryche.  Below is a song from one of my all time favorite albums, Operation Mindcrime (concept album - tells a story

, listen to it in order - it's a thriller/whodunit)

 

Spoiler

 

 

Then there is the footage of a gustnado from Monday night that a storm chaser I follow on Facebook shared 

 

Spoiler

 

 

Oh and Ancestry has a channel on Youtube - you too can learn about how better to use the site and find sorta answers to things like - why doesn't my native american DNA show up in my DNA test (per family lore on my dad's side there should be something somewhere and there was not)

 

Spoiler

 

 

Another of my favorite bands - Linkin Park - released a single (new music!)  
 

Spoiler

 

 

And I'm taking a writing class online through the Sisters In Crime Guppies Chapter on plotting and outlining (from author Simon Wood) and he has video lessons every couple of days - nope, can't share those with you.  I'm not going to risk getting kicked out.  

JRod - who I used to entertain myself with her videos in a snort laughing kind of way is mostly using Facebook  live - whch means she has left me to surf YouTube unattended without her periodic reminders to me there that I'm headed in a rather pagan direction and well (I think I stole the photo below from someone here - ty whoever you were)

      Considering she showed the receipt, I don’t think she got them for free. If she did, she certainly went to great lengths attempting to pretend she paid for them herself. 

      Another thought: If she intends to become pregnant again, it makes sense to keep buying maternity clothes. However, if this is supposed to be her last baby, buying multiple dresses at 8 or 9 months pregnant seems wasteful. 

       

      Wait, did she say this?? I must have missed it. I was under the impression that she was still intending to be quiverfull.

      I love my children’s creativity. I probably praise them too much for it. Anytime my children create something, I want them to tell me all about it. I imagine so much creativity is squashed in fundieland because it doesn’t adhere to one of their many narrow views.

      Baby Nova once brought me three leaves with holes poked for eyes and mouths and told me it was a family portrait. You better believe I mounted and framed it. It hung in the hallway for more than a decade until the leaves finally disintegrated.

      Acknowledgment of our children's efforts is critical to their emotional growth and well being. It seems so small to us but criticism for a "junk sculpture" can be crushing to a little person. Children are not inconveniences to work around and squeeze into the corners of our lives. They aren't meant to be dressed up and trotted out once a week for an Insta pic. Most importantly, kids should never be a prop for fragile eggshell personalities who lack internal strength.

      In keeping with the discussion in the JRod thread, I did find something else to like about this film -- the wood boxes in the first scene:

      and the pottery in a scene near the end (not my exact style, but nice):

      But then, there's this:

      And this:

      In which Doug admires the fact that Kelly's hair went from jet black with the dye the Lenape had put on it for 10 years, to gleaming blonde (and a whole other texture!) in only one bath. Oddly, her roots are still somewhat darker.

      The Lord works in mysterious ways.

      I like the spelling "wiennie." Makes them sound more elegant somehow, like something from Old Vienna, to be enjoyed with a fine wine.
