The snow has finally come! It’s as if a fever has broken here and the scene outside has finally caught up to reality. Snow!

Watchers Never Rest 👀

xxx.

The new way of watching TV can be very addictive, between the DVR, Xfinity, Netflix, Amazon Prime and so much more. In fact, I’m watching the beginning of the third season of Broadchurch right now as I type. Tonight’s rundown of fabulous programming follows, after a bit of news … actually a lot of news because I have deputized myself as a citizen reporter who knows that each and even one of us might be able to solve the puzzle of the current presidency if we watch long enough, Tweeting all the while.
