    Small Talk: The Welcome Mat

    @Netfoot, what an adventurous life you lead with your furry, scavenger roommate! That pic is hilarious. I can just see him needing to be tugged out from under the bed. Hope you found the balrog (a new word for me)! My neighbor across the street has a precious little screech owl living in her back yard who would love to take it off your hands!

    CBS: Completely Brainless Slop! (And Other Shows.)

    Some interesting segments on CBS Sunday Morning today, but also some slop. I couldn’t FF fast enough through the Ree Drummond segment and then the lengthy Jim Gaffigan piece. But the rest of the show was good. The closing of small town hospitals was heartbreaking. I am so sorry for those small communities and those life and death situations. The book binding by hand story was fascinating but I think I saw a typo on one of the pages of the book they opened up at the end. It is a poetry book and it said “...as nothing renders all, as grace comes through the bittter fall.” How ironic to have a typo in a beautiful book that took a lot of time to hand bind! Loved the tree chairs segment. Wow, I’d love one of those. Mo is a good host!

    In addition to what @Browncoat suggests, can one or two of your friends or neighbors help out? Maybe a handyman can take care of the fridge situation? You may be surprised at how many people would like to help!

    @Netfoot, just checking in to see how you’re doing.

    Behind the Drywall: DIY Shows

    I record Lark Rise to Candleford which is shown on the BYU station but had never noticed the station’s other shows. I found Leave it to Bryan which I have set to record but also saw that Anastasia, a 1956 movie with Ingrid Bergman and the lucious Yul Brynner, is showing this week. I will definitely check out this station’s programming more often!

    If you haven’t heard, he’ll be hosting the Spring Baking Championship, so that should be fun!

    Oh my, @Netfoot! That is distressing news! Sending prayers and good thoughts your way.

    CBS: Completely Brainless Slop! (And Other Shows.)

    Dang it, Steve Hartman! You REALLY got me today on CBS Sunday Morning with your story about the vet, her dog Moxie and service dog in training Tiny Tim. How do you do it week after week! Returns to chopping onions. 😢

    There’s not a “forum” for TK but there is a “topic.”

    @Netfoot, good luck with the surgery! Hope you have a quick, uneventful recovery.

    The Kitchen

    It was top rated for Jan 28 thru Feb 3 and is usually near the top. Suffice it to say, it’s always one of the top performing shows.

    The Kitchen

    This show continues to be the #1 rated show on FN and, understandably, I think part of that is because folks have it on while doing laundry and other chores on Saturday morning. I actually watched it today. Couldn’t believe it warranted 2 hours, but whatever. That being said, I would eat the crap out of GZ’s braised pork butt, if you know what I mean. Ha! That looked amazing. I was also surprised that he prepares fried eggs in the oven! I never thought of that. I like to fix them on the stovetop cause I can baste with butter to make sure the tops of the whites are done. But I’ll try the oven method. I enjoy Alex G as a guest and wish she still had her own show. She has good ideas and is personable. I don’t like putting bacon pieces in a pasta dish, but I do like the idea of drizzling in a bit of bacon drippings with some lemon juice. There is just something off-putting to me about bacon bits sitting in a creamy sauce but I do like the flavor of a carbonara. Surprisingly, Jeff did not bug the shit out of me today. He was almost amusing! What has happened to me? He was funny saying that he’d sit in his basement eating a bucket of mac and cheese. Yeah, me too, if I had a basement! I wish I had Katie’s metabolism. She likes to eat and never gains an ounce. Of course she isn’t my age. When I was young, I was cute and skinny, too! And I love her ring. It may be my dream ring. Sunny still bugs but nothing I can do about that. She wasn’t quite so loud this time and I liked her wig.

    All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    I can’t believe the vet was able to save that poor poodle! JJ didn’t ask how he is doing. I soooo wish I hadn’t watched the video. I had a nightmare about it last night. If that had been my dog, I would have run outside with every knife I owned and those savage dogs would not be alive.
