Somebody Stop Me…

…I don’t have TIME to start watching another TV series! But, BBCA is replaying a bunch of Classic Doctor Who, and I’m curious to take in some of the series that used to scare me when I was little, ha!

So far I’ve caught episodes showing the creation of the Daleks and another with #4 regenerating.

Anyone else think that Sarah Jane is a bit milk-toasty? Meh. Those were the times, I guess. I prefer the butt-kicking Martha Jones companion…

Hey, Vinnie! What’s Today’s Special?

Let Your Kids Show You Their Favorite You Tuber’s Channels…

…because you just might get a good laugh for your day.

The Girl’s friend showed me one of her more favorite You Tube channels this evening, and guess what- it seems safe for the whole family!

Wheezy Waiter has not only a video that will make most kids and adult crack up- “Bad Parkour,” but also has the sweetest proposal video to melt the women’s hearts (“1000th Video”).

Sit down with your kids and watch their videos online with them- you get to see what junk and what great stuff is out there online. Maybe you’ll find something to enjoy with them!

“1000th Video”

What do DIY Tutorials and Teen Culture Have in Common? You Tube.

“Oh yeah, I learned how to do that on You Tube.”
-Everyone

Everyone except me… I have to admit, I’ve never used online videos to learn how to do anything. Supposedly there is a video tutorial for everything online. The Girl taught herself how to play guitar just by using You Tube and other online tutorials. The Boy is learning coding. And do we even need to mention how every high school student in the country knows about The Vlog Brothers and their Crash Course videos? John and Hank Greene are better than internet rock stars for this generation of students- they are leaders. Don’t know who they are? READ THIS ARTICLE and get your own crash course in Online Teen Culture- “The Teen Whisperer,” by Margaret Talbot as published by The New Yorker Magazine. You will be glad to know that the Youth of today have better role models than the latest pop star or celebrity.

Hide your weather beaten front door behind a Door Monster this Halloween!

Fall 2014 1st day of school and the leftovers of the Doctor Who party
Fall 2014 1st day of school and the leftovers of the Doctor Who party… the fez is out of shot, unfortunately.

My July projects include repainting my sorry front door. Hoo boy, is it in bad shape. We’ve abused it with tape and crepe to make a Door Monster for Halloween (and it hid the chipped, faded paint!), and turned the blue-ish door into our own personal Tardis for a Doctor Who party. But, the door has taken a beating and is ready for repainting. I’ve painted the inside of my house before, but never have done any exterior work. It’s gotta be different with some important steps to follow. And should I paint it a true Tardis blue? Or a forrest green, like The Husband has requested… decisions, decisions…

You Tube to the Rescue!

This guy had great instructions, door totally off the hinges with no hardware to tape around:

So did the people at Dunn-Edwards Paints, and they left the door on the hinges and some of the hardware on:

This video was helpful, too, another with the door on the hinges and hardware taped and providing a materials list:

OK. I’m ready to hit the paint counter and get started.
