Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

Appointment TV:

‘Succession’ is a new American drama series that premiered several weeks ago on HBO. It was created by Jesse Armstrong. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are the executive producers. It was so well received that one week after it premiered HBO announced it was renewing for a second season. It is about the Roy family who control one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. Logan Roy, the patriarch, is aging and the four children are eager to know what their father has in mind for the company as he prepares to retire. It has intrigue combined with quirky, unattractive and hilarious family members. After the first episode, which I liked, I wasn’t convinced I would continue to watch. I found myself thinking about the show and family the rest of the week and my curiosity to see what happened got the better of me.  I watched the second episode and after that I was hooked!

If you like robes as much as some of my family members do, check out this Austin, TX site devoted to selling only robes. Highway-Robery has 16 patterns in an ultra- soft woven cotton, silky rayon or heavier weight weave. The robes are unisex, and one size with a length of 45”. They are made in the U.S.   Most are $118.00.

DBO Home was started by a ceramicist and furniture designer husband and wife team. Everything is made by hand. I love these soup bowls at $52 each. I use them for everything, not just soup.
