What’s going on? I am woefully behind on Thanksgiving preparations and had a near pumpkin pie catastrophe. I always do a spice check before any holiday but I forgot this year. I realized a half an hour before the nearest store closed that I was out of three of the four spices I put in the pumpkin pie. I just got to the store in the nick of time.
And I went to bed really early last night with a bad headache and woke up with a head cold. So, it’s turning out to be one of those holidays.
I assume you’ve got your Thanksgiving feast all ironed out so I’m going to launch into other Stuff You’ve Gotta See.
You need to listen to The Turkey Who Loved My Wife over at The Sporkful podcast.
One more podcast suggestion: Unretirement’s first episode: It Takes a Village, Recovering From Job Loss After 50. I’m going to turn 46 in a few weeks and I’m in a dying industry so I could very well be trying to recover from a job loss after 50. That’s in part why I launched this website a few years ago. So I could have my own voice if and when the newspaper folds or is bought out by someone who decides middle-aged women are too much trouble to employ. (p.s. I get many of my podcast suggestions from The Audio File)
Are you disgusted with your home Internet speed? Before you make voodoo dolls to curse each person who works at your internet provider, read how to get faster wi-fi. There are several things to check that you can do quickly, including finding out your actual internet speed, the age of your router as well as how to position your antennae if your router still has them.
Tell me what else should be on the list.
