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. The Sandlot
It’s that time of year – football season is behind us, basketball season is in the doldrums, and spring training has just begun. All of which means boredom and anticipation. Nothing greases the skids for the greatest baseball movie ever like boredom and anticipation. In fact, this season is what I call Sandlot season. Smalls, Squints, Yeah Yeah, Benny, Ham, and the gang will get us through this sluggish part of the sports year, I promise. They will lift your spirits, make you laugh, and bring back all the nostalgia of a youth you wish you had.
Many gummy bears vie for the crown, but only Haribo rules them all. Some are too rubbery, some are to sweet and not tart enough, some are flavorless. Haribo bears are practically perfect in all these ways. They even taste fruity enough to alleviate some of the guilt one feels for eating acidic rubberized corn syrup!
Like many of you, I am regularly going from one place to another (as if there is anywhere else one could go) or in some place away from a convenient wall outlet. This means I can’t regularly charge my iPhone. This means I am regularly out of touch with social media and news outlets and digital connections to the WORLD. Enter MyCharge – it is small enough to carry with you (especially if you carry a purse or murse) and easily rechargeable itself because it can plug directly into an outlet. It has cords for iPhones and micro-usb built in so that you don’t need to carry a tangle of cords with you. And it can charge a phone 2-3 times before needing to recharge. I take one on every trip and to any long day at my daughter’s swim meets. How else would I survive?
