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

This is a great podcast if you like movies. Ronald Young, Jr. is the host and after watching a movie either in a theater or from his couch, he records a podcast with his review. The podcasts range from 15 – 25 minutes each.  The reviews I listened to were of movies I had seen, and I agreed with his opinions 100%.  Sometimes he will have a co-host who lends expertise to the topic of the movie.  This is a podcast I will refer to before watching my next movie.

After a three-year break, HBO’s Perry Mason returns for its second season.  I can’t wait!  It took me awhile to get used to Matthew Rhys in the role of Perry Mason as he looks and acts nothing like Raymond Burr. In this version, set in 1930s Los Angeles, Perry has not yet achieved fame and the 100% success rate in winning cases.  Rhys plays a gritty, down-on-his luck Perry Mason, whose idealistic and positive sides emerge only occasionally.  Viewers do root for him, however and I thought season one was excellent.  There will be 8 episodes.  The first one premiered on March 6, 2023, and subsequent episodes will drop once a week until April 24, 2023.


I recently read about the Lanshin Massager by Acera.  It is made of porcelain and glazed with crushed tourmaline crystal.  The massager uses Acera’s patented Liven technology for its infrared heat energy.  It is compared to a hot stone massage in your palm and is deeply soothing.  Remove the cap and add hot water.  The massager will heat and be soothing to any tired, aching body parts.  It comes in pink, green, and grey.  $59.00.
