Nurture & Support 174: Mel and Kelly talk about what to buy on Amazon (again)

In what is becoming a trend, Mel and I share what to buy on Amazon based on our recent purchases.  Amazon, feel free to start sending us free stuff to review.  Maybe start with Nintendo Switches.

 

Mel’s Recommendation –  Star Wars Bookends

Han. Leia. Classic poses. Heavy. Bookends. Currently out of stock.  What more do you need to know??  Here is the link to keep checking to order these.

 

 

 

 

 

Kelly’s RecommendationTechole HDMI splitter

Works like a champ. Does not require a power source. Supports 4K.  VERY affordable.

Nurture & Support 173: The miracle of loaves and Fitbits

After some shelter at home chat, Mel and I continue our long history of recommending Fitbit products (note to Fitbit, we remain VERY open to trying out new products) and provide a cool recipe as well.

 

 

Kelly’s Recommendation – Fitbit Versa 2

This is a good looking, long battery life, reliable smart-ish watch at a price point WELL below the Apple Watch and its ilk.  The only drawback is no GPS, but that has only been a minor issue for me.

 

 

 

 

Mel’s Recommendation –  Artisan Bread in Five

As Mel explained it, this site offers a recipe for fresh bread that is quick and easy and I might even be capable of executing.  We’ll see 🙂

Nurture & Support 172: All the animals

This week Mel and I are joined by Dr. Mike and he and I offer a rare joint recommendation.

Mel’s RecommendationStardew Valley

Mel recommends a game that will give you all of the joy of Animal Crossing, but for $7.99 in an app store verses having to buy a Switch.

 

 

 

 

Mike & Kelly’s Recommendation – Tiger King on Netflix

You all have likely heard of it, but if you haven’t watched yet, you owe it to yourself to board this train to crazytown.

 

 

 

Social Media Recommendation – Any music video by Joe Exotic on YouTube

Nurture & Support 171: Demon Crush

Some viewing or reading options this week folks….

Kelly’s recommendationScreenCrush YouTube channel

 

This channel provides breakdowns, analysis, Easter eggs, etc. about Star Wars and Superhero movies and TV shows.  The host is funny and knowledgeable.  Be sure to check out their Clone Wars season 7 material!

 

Mel’s recommendation –  American Demon

 

This week Mel recommends the next chapter of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, “American Demon”.  We also get some much deserved plugging of Goodreads as well.  This book won’t be out until June 16, but Mel won a free advanced reading copy!  She strongly encourages everyone to preorder this.  This is a continuation of the story with witches, demons, vampires, pixies, and no tomatoes on salads 🙂

 

 

 

 

As a reminder, Mel’s book recommendations are quite convincing…

Squat Cobbler 122: Frank Zappa / Captain Beefheart / The Mothers of Invention – Bongo Fury (album review)

Tangent Tally: 1

This week Dr. Mike and I discuss the Frank Zappa / Captain Beefheart / The Mothers of Invention album “Bong Fury”.  This is a great mix of the two very different styles of Beefheart and Zappa.

This episode is also available on YouTube.

 

 

 

 

 

Mike felt “Sam With the Showing Scalp Flat Top” had some parallels with this Prince song.  You decide…
