Welcome to Tuesday 4 in honor of Toni Taddeo. Thank you Annie for these questions.
1. Do you have a favorite movie to recommend? There are many films I enjoy. For American made Drama, one of the finest, most profound movies ever made is The Best Years Of Our Lives (1946). Another good drama that’s an interesting study in human nature is Lifeboat (1944) by Alfred Hitchcock. For Comedy, I enjoy The Cheap Detective (1978). It helps if one enjoys old Humphrey Bogart movies for this one, which I do because this film is a parody of those and other old detective stories. More good clean comedies are: Radioland Murders (1994), What’s Up Doc (1972), and Young Frankenstein (1974). I like Musicals too. I think my favorite is Music Man (1962). But there’s also, My Fair Lady (1964). They are always an enjoyable watch. Then there’s the old Sci-Fi/Horror films that can be cheesy fun. Every Saturday between chores I’ll give one a watch. One of my old-time fav’s is Gargoyles (1972). That one scared me and my then boyfriend good! 😬 Wasn’t funny then but we laughed about how silly we had been later. 😅
And then there’s Westerns … I could go on and on about my favorite films and I haven’t even touched on the massive British options with all these genres. There are so many that are in my DVD collection that I never tire of watching. It would take all afternoon to list them all. I’ll spare y’all that. 😉
2. Do you have a schedule for your day or do you wing it? Sometimes I schedule. Most of the time I wing it, or, more like wing and prayer it. 🦋 😀
3. What are you eating/cooking lately? All keto baby. All the way. (No refined sugar or flour, low carbs, high in protein, intermittent fasting.) I don’t ever want to being overweight with heart palpations, blood sugar spikes or mysterious aches and pains again. Things aren’t perfect but it’s certainly better than spending all my days in doctors offices loaded down with their prescription poison. No thanks! It’s such an easy way to eat. We eat so good now and the food tastes wonderful now that I’m not a sugar addict anymore. Plus, I figured we’re also saving hundreds of dollars on the food bill, medicines and medical procedures. Our expenses are way down. Steve has already given up two of his medicines (under a doctors care). He’s doing great too. I’m so proud of him.
4. Do you surf on your computer? Tell us about it, won’t you? You mean like spend hours aimlessly wandering around on the ‘net? No. Haven’t done that since the internet was new and we all had dial-up. I do spend a couple of hours a week working on our family genealogies, reading other blogs or reading some posts on FaceBook. I’ve been trying to stay away from news and politics almost entirely. I use the internet for all our streaming of old movies and TV shows on YouTube. Then there is a FaceBook video feature where I like watching the home improvement, furniture renovations, gardening tips, and keto cooking video’s that are posted there. I get all kinds of cool ideas for from them, much to my husband’s chagrin, I’m sure.
Thanks for joining in. I will try to visit other blogs now that life has calmed down a bit here. I always thought being retired we would have more time. Not so! Seems like I’m busier than ever. 💫 I may have to get a job just so I can relax. 😂 I hope your day is blessed.
