Souvenirs

Like many others, the e_monster buys trinkets and gifts from his travels around the US and beyond. Even small and simple tokens can bring back good memories of adventures.

These inexpensive keychain fobs somehow always bring back good memories of visits to Hawaii:



Some souvenirs are wearable.  I got this rugby jersey while visiting Australia. I wear it at sports events here at home.


And even more functional souvenir is this Swiss wine bottle opener. Its gotten good use, I tells ya:


Whoops. How'd that one get in here?



How about you? Do you obtain souvenirs? Do any of your souvenirs have a story to tell?

Favorite channel or streaming service to go to for Christmas movies?

via GIPHY


The Christmas Movie Season is officially under way! Plenty of networks (even Netflix!) putting up all the Christmas material you can think of! It's a really fun time, and it's work out time for the DVR!


There's a lot of places to watch Christmas movies, and odds are, you have your favorite station. Either for the old movies, or for new material. Here's a few good examples:


Hallmark:



The undisputed king of the Christmas Movie Season! They've been making Christmas movies for a long time, and they always get the ratings! For the past few years, they've been breaking their own records for how many new Christmas movies they put out each year on their 3 networks: Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama.


Lifetime:



Hallmark's closest competition. They put out a reasonable number of Christmas movies every year. I've seen a few of them, they're okay, but Hallmark is definitely better.


Netflix:


In the past few years, the streaming giant has been putting out their own Christmas content. I don't have an account, so I have no idea if they're good. All I know of any of their movies, is that critics hilariously mocked their Christmas Prince trilogy, and people love them anyway.


Up TV:



Faith based and feel-good channel similar to Hallmark. They've been doing their own content for a few years, I've seen a couple, and they're pretty good! And if anyone on here loves Gilmore Girls, they're airing a whole series marathon during Thanksgiving week!

Ion Television:




Mainly known for airing reruns of popular cops shows like NCIS Los Angeles and Law and Order, this syndication station takes a break during December to air Christmas movies on Sunday nights. I've seen a few of them, they're pretty good!


And the new network to sink it's hat into the ring, GAC Family:



Formally known as The Great American Country channel, this newly rebranded channel is airing it's first new Christmas movies starting next Saturday! I saw their movie preview this week, and they look really good!


So, got your favorites? Discussion is now open!

Joe's Garage ~ Chillaxin'!



WhoooHoooo! It's the weekend and you know what that means? Time to hit the Garage! I don't know about you...but I need some serious Chillaxin' time! What's Chillaxin'? Here, let's consult the professionals...

chillaxin' - slang Relaxing. A portmanteau of "chilling" and "relaxing", often shortened colloquially.

WHAT??? I have no idea what that means! I'll make this easy...tonight let's post up tunes that help us chill or relax. What could be better than that?






OK, obviously Imma Rocker...but I also go in for just about anything you want to play. After all...we all chillax in our own way. Let's sit around, play some good relaxing music...and chill. As always, funny gifs are welcome too! Ladies and gentlemen...Joe's Garage is open!


Which one would you choose?

 


G'day everyone! TGIF and I hope your having a good one! The weekend is finally here! ðŸ˜Š

Oh to be a kid again! Other than a few chores needed to get our allowance and our unwitting pressing need at the time to become an adult, (did we ever blow that part ðŸ™‚) We had it made and just didn't know it.

We became adults and fairly quickly we found out that meant that we had all sorts of things we had to take care of all of a sudden. ðŸ™„

Now it'd be definitely great to be able to at least drop a few of those or even just one lol!

So there's four in the pic above that'll likely be on a few of our lists and for me, I'm going to pick number two on it. It truly would be great if our houses automatically cleaned themselves.

I'm partway there on it at my house. We have a Roomba.




It still needs emptying when it gets full and spends part of it's time entertaining the cats lol, but it does help. ðŸ™‚

We also have a dishwasher and that helps amazingly since both of us can turn the kitchen into a disaster area in no time at all! ðŸ˜‚





But there's still no end to that particular chore, so I pick number two from the pic. 

So there's my choice for this thread and now it's your turn. ðŸ™‚
Which one would you pick from the above list and why? Also, if you have one not in the pic above that you'd like to add, go right ahead or even just chat!

I hope you all have a great Friday and:
