“Sister Krissie Explains It All” Is Now Explaining It All


Krissie started her 2015 blog on the first and didn’t tell anybody. ARGH. Go over and say hi, and we’ll do the Re-Fab thing there. And now I have to go over there and catch up. She never tells me anything.

Accuweather has always been my go-to weather site. I know some people swear by The Weather Channel, but those people are just odd. They keep calling this snow and cold situation Hercules even though nobody names snowstorms. Why? Because storms with names get more hits, and if they’re the only site calling it Hercules . . .

I love io.9 because it tells me so many interesting things, but the most vital link it’s given me lately is to a much-needed movie review site called Does the Dog Die? which mostly consists of one or two line reviews like

Raiders of the Lost Ark: A capuchin monkey that the main characters treat as a pet is killed when it eats poisoned dates. Reggie the pet Burmese python is not harmed but a number of venomous wild snakes are set on fire.

See, that’s the kind of thing you need to know, although I’d have mentioned that the cute monkey was a Nazi spy. read more >>
