Each week I share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
1. Mahalia Jackson Singing “O Holy Night”
Some songs aren’t meant to be crooned, jazzed, rocked, or popped. Some songs just need to be sung. This is one of them and this is the best rendition. Jackson makes sure you know good and well that night was holy.
There are some in this world who think “Twizzlers vs. Red Vines” is a debate. It’s a debate in the same way that “good vs. evil” is a debate – sure, there are people on both sides, but I mean, come on. Red Vines taste like kids cherry Robitussin. Twizzlers are the nectar of the gods in chewable form (and low fat too!). They are first ballot candy hall of fame inductees. Go get some twizzlers and make yourself happy.
I love to read, but there are piles of books each year I don’t have time to read. This is especially true of biographies and history books because they tend to be looooooooong. The last couple years, though, I’ve found that listening to them is fantastic, and I use Audible to do so. Listening to books means I can “read” during my commute, while traveling, while working out, or doing work around my home. Audible has monthly membership plans with either one or two credits for books at a flat rate. Members get discounts on other purchases as well or you can just buy audio books at full price when it suits you without a membership. You can check it out at no risk too – a 30-day free trial with a couple free books included (that you get to keep even if you cancel the membership).
