I love you all!

1) Food

I love baking lasagna because its nutritious (I can create a veggie, meat or a combination of the two) and easy to make (cook the meat, pour the spaghetti sauce into it, cut the vegetables and sprinkle the cheese throughout the layers. Build the layers and place it onto a Pyrex container with aluminum foil on top. Place it into the oven and set the timer).

If I run out of ideas, I can always turn to the new stars of online cooking (notice that it’s the online world that counts. Not the TV/book/cable world):

2) Relax

Do you miss visiting your art gallery because it’s closed due to the pandemic?

Do you want to look at a piece of art without leaving your home?

Try stamp collecting (it’s popular because it helps you to relax; the article is behind a paywall):

3) The Show Must Go On

Technology’s impact on the entertainment world?

It allows the Discovery Network (it’s a cable network in the US) to cut their production costs when they shifted from a TV studio to the cast member(s) home.

Using simple equipment such as:

A) smartphones (mostly iPhones)

B) tripods

C) GoPros.

This is the new normal.

Let’s take this one further to your work life: if the company saved $300,000 US for each hour it took to create a show, imagine the savings if your company or government department decides to do this as well. Money that can be re-directed to other areas, such as training:

Look at their job postings.

P.S. This idea applies at your workplace.
