A Not-So-Silent Witness

My husband and I have been watching Silent Witness on Amazon Prime. It’s a long-running pathology/detective show from the BBC. There are something like 23 seasons available to stream in the US on Prime and Britbox. We’ve watched so much of it that we’re beginning to discuss it in bizarre ways that only happen when you’ve been watching a lot of the same show. Not only do we comment on all the characters’ tastes and proclivities but we pronounce who will die and who did it within moments of the show starting. Thanks to the pandemic, we also now comment on anyone who isn’t maintaining proper social distance, which is basically everyone, since these shows were filmed ages ago. Does that stop us? No. Of course not. Here’s the trailer for season 19 because it popped up first on the search.

Hot Honey

No, this is not a post about my husband, although he is definitely a hot honey. Instead, I thought I’d share my new favorite thing to eat with walnuts and plain Greek yogurt.

Hot Honey

I’m not a chili head. I don’t like food that causes me pain or to hallucinate, but I do like a little heat and Mike’s Hot Honey is delicious.

The Witcher

As an avid gamer and a big fan of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as well as The Witcher books by Andrzej Sapkowski, I was both excited and apprehensive about the Netflix series. I can happily say, I enjoyed it greatly. The characters were just as they were in the books and game. The writers and actors did a wonderful job bringing them to the screen and I’m really looking forward to season two.

As a quick note: The first two Witcher video games are not nearly as good as the third one. Don’t waste your time on them.
