Every year the Hallmark Channel uploads A Very Happy Yule Log, but you can also find various other burning fireplaces streaming online, usually for a 3 hour period. It's ridiculous how hypnotized I get with a simple fire that's burning on television with Happy the Cat or Happy the Dog running around, but I can't seem to help myself. (lol) Something about it is just soothing and addictive.

Are you a Star Wars fan? If you saw The Last Jedi this weekend, you contributed to the over $220 million opening this weekend!
I used to watch Star Wars as a kid, and they're still good movies, but these days, I'm a little more into Star Trek.

At first glance, everything looks totally fake but Jay Baron, who also has a program on Youtube, prepares real food that can really be eaten. It just happens to be in miniature form. Watching him as he looks for alternative ways to make dinner, is truly amazing.
If you've been reading this blog, you already know that I adore cheeseburgers, so when possible, I find a way to sneak in a tidbit. (lol) Wendy's the fast food restaurant opened for business in 1969 in Ohio. Everyone knows that the pigtailed logo is based on Dave Thomas' daughter. But did you know her name isn't really Wendy? It's actually Melinda Lou! As a kid, it was rough for her to pronounce certain letters, so she referred to herself as Wendy or Wenda, and eventually it stuck.
Some people have traditions which include using the same ornaments each year, and others prefer to stretch the depths of their imagination or offer up a really good laugh.

I read books...a lot, and my TBR pile is huge. Here's a couple books next up on my list to read for the start of 2018.
One of things that always makes me happy is hearing about or seeing random acts of kindness, so this is something I couldn't help sharing.
Secretly, 200 Walmart layaways totalling a little more than $40,000 in Everett Pennsylvania were
paid off this year. Santa B, as this gentleman is called, did the same thing last year, and continues to remain anonymous.
