Safe, free music online

Saturday, December 22, 2018

There are some really awesome places to get free music online. I've been posting this online for the last month on Facebook, along with my Youtube Christmas videos, for people who don't have cable. I realized that I'd forgotten to share my music sites on here.

One of the freebie sites I frequently us on Facebook "Gimmie freebies" had some bbok posts, so I will add their link, as well.  http://gimmiefreebies.com/top-15-free-music-websites-listen-to-free-music/?fbclid=IwAR1tH3SnQtDGm0rdsj1ogTrHSCuGqvtwjEIcpd21YKFBG72U2XEFneY8DCE

I use several of the sites on their list & I will add several of my own favourites here.

First, several free Christmas music sites:

Saturday, November 11, 2018.

Speaking of saving money, have you ever considered giving up cable? I did & it ain't that bad. If you are in Canada, CBC, CTV & Global all have shows online that you can watch for free the day after they come out on TV. In the US, CBS, NBC & FOX also do this. ABC has something similar, but you have to wait a week after the broadcast date. Netflix is still under $10 a month I think, & in the US, Hulu is $7.99 a month & it also has a free trial & optional add-ons for HBO, Showtime & Cinemax (at an extra cost, of course). You can also watch Crackle online.  Plus there's a lot of interesting content available on YouTube.  I even have a channel there:   https://www.youtube.com/user/MichaelannDahlman/videos



It's that time of the year again. Thanksgiving is over & its time for me to share a lot of awesome Christmas shows (mostly on YouTube), for those of us who do have internet, but who do not have cable.

One of my favourite Muppet Christmas shows, "A Muppet Family Christmas."  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWTSe_Y5Klg

And another old favorite, "Christmas Eve on Sesame street"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EF4XRQwzls8&t=4s

The Berenstain Bears Christmas:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRTOzpsMDvQ

Christopher the Christmas tree:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Dc8lHR4YKY&t=51s

A lovely Canadian Christmas show, featuring music by Valdy!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9_Vuk4geLE&t=19s

The Snowman (with David Bowie intro!)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGmOiccZFJM


I remember watching this with my kids nearly 30 years ago! Santa & the 3 bears. I still have it on VHS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLXyceT_j7M&t=184s

Mole's Christmas is adapted from the TV show "Wind in the Willows"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTWp3A5HraY

Olive, the other reindeer!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s54sLlRNmHc




Santa Claus is coming to town:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVAc0FJdYoA

And while this isn't exactly holiday themed, I still think it fits here as being somewhat winter-y. Do you remember watching the Woody Woodpecker show & there was cute 5 minute short in between Woody's episodes, called "Chilly Willy", a little penguin? Well, you can check them out again, here:  http://www.chillywillyfan.com/video.php

And a new one I'd never seen before today! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxydrJeB4Mk

HELP!?

Sunday, August 19, 2018


I'm just going to throw this question out into the universe, to see if anyone can help me figure this out. I bought this watch last May & I have a problem. (aside from the fact that I couldn't find a way to open the back to change the battery & the had to go to a jeweler's & pay $10 for it!)
Whenever I carry this watch in my pocket, it stops being accurate!😲😲😡 I tested it by re-setting it, leaving it on my desk & checking the time several times a day. It keeps perfect time on my desk, but on 4 different occasions over the last year it stopped being accurate whenever I wear it. WTF!?!😲
Any ideas?
