  1. I buy almond milk now that our kids are out of the house specifically for its longer fridge life. Since we use milk almost exclusively as an ingredient it doesn't get used very fast. So the one week fridge life wouldn't work for me. My daughter makes her own almond milk using a Blendtec blender, which can be used for a myriad of other things instead of another one use kitchen appliance. I have long, very thick hair and never once have stuck a glob on of it on the shower wall. But I have the solution- the teenager who sticks their hair on the wall has chosen to clean the bathroom that day.
  2. Jane was a guest on NPR's Wait, Wait.Don't Tell Me today. She said that the cast and contestants were.flown to Australia and spent a solid 14 days alone in their hotel rooms. Eve after hearing that it was jarring to seen a crowd and a full band. So many people! I liked the show and will watch. Something light and fun. And now I want to listen to Bryan Adams.
  3. It was a show full of so many good stories today. Loved the Young at Heart choir and the segment on kindness in particular. It was a jarring transition when right after the speaking about kindness and washing the feet of the homeless it broke to the commercial stating "Don't forget about yourself the Christmas"- and the people buying themselves cars with big bows.
  4. Really did not like Codi pitch or.product- the pitch was that without tablets and phones their was nothing that interested his 2 year old. That's a problem that needs a whole other solution than more tech. And the way it seemed the interface works is that the parent tells the toy when it's time for the kids to clean up so it plays its song, tells the toy when they are done so it can praise them, etc. I'm assuming all that is through an app on parent's phone. Meaning parent is spending even more time on their device to program Codi and less time interacting with their children. Use that ti
  5. Whoa, I missed the 4 month time jump. Must have been too involved in my knitting! So she had the backpack sitting in her office for 4 months? Because the white outfit was what she was wearing during the arrest and the flashback to the telling her husband through the window was that same night, correct? Then she's wearing the red dress with the complete pregnant belly reveal when she comes into the office and opens the backpack.
  6. I knew Simone was pregnant as soon as she stood up in that white out for, but wasn't sure if Lola was supposed to be as well, but thought there is no way they can try to pull this off. So I was very relieved when she told her husband, but surely she would have told him well before she was that far along! She said he'd been gone for a month this time, so this should have been something he was well aware.of before then. Sad that Mark's reaction was what it was. Sadder still that the bigger issues are too real.
  7. This morning hearing Anthony talk about the loss of their baby during his wife's pregnancy in the past was so touching. I have never gone through it myself, but have been through it with my daughter's first three pregnancies. That deep loss is tragic and causes such feelings of inadequacy and isolation. Just hearing him speak about it, you could hear how those feelings are still there. My daughter is about to give birth again, after two healthy children and all is going well, but that underlying dread is still with her.
  8. I agree; it was awkward and embarrassing. She was practically salivating. It is just as demeaning and harassing when you say things like that to a man. He was there to discuss his book and his music; not to hear a critique of his sexiness or how much Gayle or her friend lust after him.
  9. I use Castbox and it does a good job of downloading all the episodes of my subscriptions. I can choose to list from newest providers. Can also look at my downloads by show or separate downloaded list. It also allows you to set you speed in increments of .1 seconds. I just skip through the ads if my hands aren't too busy.
  10. Just saw this one the other and it made me laugh out loud. Those aunts are indeed a pestilence- but only in the best way because they only say those things for your own good 😁 And "Auntie" Prevailing Wind you are rocking that look and your groovy suitcases.
  11. First, I'd report to the network playing it. They're the ones that would have to pay fines for the violation, I think. And I guess the FCC is the agency who makes those regulations. You could check their website.
  12. The bangs may have improved but the overtalking definitely has not. A couple of days ago I had to just turn off the interview with Amy Schumer- neither one of them seemed to understand how an interview works. And yesterday with the Popeyes chicken sandwich- we understand you love it, Gayle. But then she had to bring it up again in another segment to announce that there fries with the order. Why do the viewers care if you have cold French fries in the morning? Bring Jerika back!
  13. I did, too! He had that tone that he does in The Amazing Race when they keep the leg going. Really like Myles, Danny and Callie. I like their more quiet focus and getting the job done.
  14. Tony did such a sweet and tearful tribute to his mom for her retirement (that is, until Gayle stepped all over it insisting that he tell us about it- that is what he was doing) He seems to have lived a very interesting life. Might have to read his bio or some info.
  15. I know what you mean. I like Gayle overall and I certainly don't want to nitpick the only woman on the panel but she has certain habits. Like the pointing the finger thing, if she uses the word great she has to add "it's Tony the Tiger great", etc. Since they've been broadcasting from home the overtalking has gotten much worse- everyone does it to some extent as it is the nature of delay but Gayle does it at another level. When a guest adds something to the greeting instead of just continuing she stops and acknowledges what they said, has to try to find where she was. Same thing happens a
