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

Only Murders in the Building Season Two is dropping June 28th on Hulu with Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez. It took me an episode or two to fall completely in love with this show.  I have great affection for both Steve Martin and Martin Short. I think they are among the good guys in Hollywood.  Selena Gomez makes the show.  As a trio it works, and it is fun, light, and entertaining.

I grew up with a jar opener a zillion years ago on the underside of one of the kitchen cabinets.  It looked like a giant opened zipper, and I never could get it to grip right.  I just had a newer version enthusiastically recommended to me, so I thought I’d pass the information along.  It’s called the EZ Off Jar and Bottle Opener and is installed under a kitchen cabinet where it is out of sight.  It is easy to install – it comes with an adhesive and three screws. It will open even the most resistant cap of any size. $18.95.


The Sealegend 2 pack Dryer Vent Cleaner Kit and Vacuum Hose Attachment removes lint that your lint screen didn’t catch.  Lint can build up over time and has been known to start dryer vent fires.  This hose attaches to your vacuum and effortlessly sucks up all the lint that’s been left behind.

This kit comes with a flexible long lint brush to clean the dryer vent of trapped lint.  It can also be used to clean your refrigerator coils. $10.99.


A personal tip that works for me, and maybe it will for you.  I stretch every morning before I get out of bed, and I have for many years.  It takes no time and I’m convinced it gets my body ready for the day. If working out is my first activity, I’m ready to go.
