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)

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

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)

      My sisters and I were a surprise when we popped up on the ultrasound because there was no known history of multiple births on either side of the family, other than I think a great-aunt may have had a twin who was stillborn. Meanwhile, my husband’s dad and grandma are/were both fraternal twins, but that won’t affect whether or not I have twins (if I ever manage to get pregnant...) Only the fact that I’m a triplet will, I assume, affect my chances. My sisters and I are two identical, one fraternal.

      Thank goodness I was a career woman because it enabled me to escape my abusive marriage.  If I hadn't been earning a good paycheck on my own I would have been stuck in a miserable situation. So, Flicka, I am damn happy that I could take care of MYSELF when I hit one of those "deep pits in the road."  I am so tired of the judgmental crap.

      I want one of them to use the name Mara because it’s just pretty and then be informed that’s a Demon in Buddhist Lore as well as a Hindu Goddess of Death. I wonder if they would change it.

      I didn't know that. That's really cool! Mara was also the name of Luke Skywalker's wife before Disney bought the franchise.

      It's weird to see how so many pastors have so little problem with murdering their wives.  (Not saying that the Rev. McDonald was seeking a hitman  to off his wife.)  There's that youth pastor in Washington state that murdered his wife and then set fire to the house so that her death might be seen as due to the fire.  Problem was no smoke in the lungs of the dead wife.  Then there was the pastor whose second wife apparently died in a car crash in which he was uninjured.  His first wife died from a fall down the basement steps of so they thought.  He murdered them both.  I could go on because there are many more.

      I wonder if they’re just cynical and don’t really believe what they’re preaching, or if the whole “personal relationship with Jesus//God answers me in prayer and ‘lays things on my heart’” just naturally leads to an assumption that “my strong feelings” = “God’s will.”
