  • I Live on Youtube.

    Ahem...you know how it goes: First, FB - then a little Twitter - and I'm back on Twitter hanging out almost every day and 'follow' everyone who follows me although I'm getting a little tired of that. So now, I'm back to YouTube -- with a vengeance, I'd say.

    I've discovered so many wonderful YT (whatever you want to call them - stations?) - I watch a young couple and their kidlet while they travel in their RV. Very light, family type stuff. So much to see and learn. It can build up hope for dreams, but I know better, having jumped in the Buddha puddle, LoL.

    If I had a better memory, I'd mention some of the YT channels, but suffice to say, many about losing weight (Supersize vs Superskinny - which I've been known to binge-watch), My 600 - Pound Life - easy one to remember, and earlier today, I discovered there are channels called 'Mukbang' - eating - usually one person eating stuff - amazing! The first one I stumbled on's called HungryFatChick - amazing! The second one I tried really hit the spot big time: Quang Tran. The man cat eat - BUT he also cooks - like Everything. So blown away by his talents, oh my. He makes everything from scratch - including pasta - it makes me want to do it but I have physical limitations that keeps me from it, dang! All this, just to say I think you'd be amazed - not to mention entertained by him.

    Thx for the video, @Bunks. Appreciate that. I've continued to watch a variety of cooking type videos, eating type videos, and enjoying the unique personalities and tastes of the people. Some foods I've never seen in my life - some that disgust me, and some that makes me want to try them. Like the Giggly cakes - think they're made in Japan.

    I know the QT guy does a ton of cooking, but I noticed he doesn't 'know' some of the finer points that I happen to know or have ferretted out how to correct some of his techniques. It's not just going ga-ga over eating or watching others eat.

    I couldn't say enough bad about FB.
    These past couple of weeks, I hang around a lot on Twitter.
    For about 2 months before that, it was YouTube.
    I'd mentioned somewhere that I used Twitter to pass on what I thought were important petitions to sign. Now, I mostly ignore and delete them when they arrive in my emails.

    Hmm...think of the Buddha as a little dinghy.
