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

Lester Holt Kids Edition

NBC’s Nightly News:Kids Edition with Lester Holt debuted in April and streamed once or twice a week on NBCnews.com. In November it moved to Saturday mornings at 9:30 AM for a try on traditional television and it is still going strong.  Lester Holt hosts from his home in casual dress.  It is informative and delightful. Episodes are also available on YouTube.

Barack Obama's Favorite Books of 2020

SkinskoolSkinskool describes itself as a “dupe finder” that compares the active ingredients in popular skincare products with similar products on the market. You can enter the name of your favorite beauty product and SkinSkool will come up with other products that have similar ingredients and will rate the accuracy of the match.  If your favorite beauty product has been discontinued, this is a great way to find products that are a close match.  It is also useful if you want to find a less expensive version of the product you are using.
