Neat and Nifty Things

Just a few fun things from around the ‘web making me happy this week!

I love this so much: Window Swap lets you enjoy the views from other people’s windows from around the world. Participants submit a ten-minute video, and viewers can hop from place to place to place as an escape.

Explore the Last Supper is a super duper high resolution scan of Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”, and provides intricate details you might otherwise miss. The detail is just incredible!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a subscriber of Jacquie Lawson (as were my parents, and my auntie), who provides animated e-cards for any and all occasions. Her illustrations (especially the nature-based ones) are lovely, the music familiar, and the price is modest even after all these years. My particular favorites are are the annual Advent Calendar, and I’ve also subscribed to both the Curio Collection and the English Garden. Such a sweet corner of the internet. 🙂

Every day when I got home from school, I had to sit at have a cuppa tea (or two) with Mum and talk about the day – sometimes for ages, and sometimes just a curt answer (I WAS a teenage girl, you know). The other constant with the cuppa tea was an episode of M*A*S*H (just one, mind) until I’d seen so many of them so many times, I had them memorized. Imagine my delight that I can stream it on Hulu now! Admittedly, we didn’t watch the later seasons much (Mum deemed them “too serious” or “too sad” unlike the madcap early episodes), so I know I have some brand new ones ahead of me.

Quarantining at home has me reaching for old familiar favorites instead of new movies/shows; maybe something to do with attention span or needing some comfort. but it’s been M*A*S*H and Golden Girls and Frasier and Mad About You and The West Wing for me! What have you been watching?
