    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #38 of 52 episodes for 2021! The weather is cooler, and I already find myself in the kitchen waaayyyyy more! Partially to help heat the house, but also because it's just that time of year. There is a pumpkin recipe I saw years ago that I still want to try – you make a soup inside of a pumpkin by putting everything into the hollowed out pumpkin, then baking the pumpkin. I don't remember everything you do, but that was the gist of it – maybe I will actually get around to it this year!

    I personally think that everyone should try to get into the kitchen at least once a week about this time of year, drag the kids in, and go nuts with your ingredients! Make goodies and try new recipes out! When you get going in the kitchen, and the kids are there, it always leads to some amazing conversations. Even better, make sure there is no music or anything, and start singing fun songs, (however horribly!), with the kids while cooking! Cooking and baking together can lead to some amazing times of fun and enjoyment.

    If baking and cooking is just not your thing, see if you can teach your kids how to do cats cradle. We all knew it as kids ourselves, I'll bet that there are not many kids who know how to do that these days! Find the time to sit and chat and just enjoy each others company – whether it's kids or friends or family in general. It feels pretty awesome, and really helps with the whole emotional and mental health. Those dishes can wait. 😉

    Rinse and repeat as often as needed.

    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #37 of 52 episodes for 2021! Add the numbers 37, 52, and 2021 together and you get 4 – which is neat because we are heading into the 4th season of the year. I hope that everyone is all prepped up for winter! Be sure to start pulling out those sweaters and heavy coats and those lovely rubber boots! After such an amazing summer, we are almost certain to have a really cold winter – seems to be that way every time.

    Remember to pull yourself off of the media for at least an hour a day – get those kids off too before they start getting stuck on the idea of what they want for X-mas before we have even passed Halloween! Also, removal of media is always sure to get true conversation going.

    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #36 of 52 episodes for 2021! Can you smell the coming of Halloween??? I can! Fall always smells like candles, leaves, and wood smoke.

    Not sure what it is, but I have been listening to the music of my teens a lot lately – and I realized, a lot of it actually has some pretty good messages in there. It also has some really good sound to it! Mind you, the music of my teens ranges from Cherry Poppin Daddies, to The Beatles. Soooo… there's quite of bit in between – but I was thinking that maybe everyone should take about a week or so, and rediscover the music of their teens/childhood!

    I think it could be a great idea to go down the rabbit hole of rediscovering your music from years abound – I have found that it has nearly drowned me in content and hilarity as I remember singing HORRIBLY to this song or that with friends, or developing film to System of a Down blaring. Sometimes I think we need to be reminded of the carefree version of ourselves, so that we can move forward a little lighter.

    Also, we can (legally) drink beer to the same songs – and it's way better beer this time around!

    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #35 of 52 episodes for 2021! And here on the Island, Autumn is officially here!! I can smell it in the air – cold has a very particular smell when it is rolling down from the mountains I find. Very different from the flat lands over in Alberta.

    I am very much looking forward to Halloween, and so are my kids! They are already getting their costumes together. Just remember that you need to keep yourself warm in the coming cold, but don't overdo it to the point where you start overheating outside – sweating in the cold is one of the worst things you can do for yourself. Almost guaranteed to get you sick if you are spending a while out there in the cold when it's here fully.

    Hopefully everyone is getting outside to enjoy the bit of the last sunshine before it goes away for about 6 months! Remember to turn off that media for about an hour every day! And don't try and ‘cheat' by just throwing on a TV show – trust me, you are still being ‘attacked' in the brain meats by TV shows and/or movies in much the same way as when you listen to the news. Throw on some music and dance around, listen to or read a book! Go listen to the sound of nature and see if you can hear the call of the little known ‘snipe bird'. It could happen…

    Ambers' Rant:

    This is #34 of 52 episodes for 2021! Here on the Island the rain has finally made an appearance – and of course, I was sleeping in a tent I created out of a nice tarp – and woke up with rivulets of water running onto my face at 4 am. Managed to fix the tent so that didn't happen anymore – turns out, that design they have for tents where there is an inside and an outside tarp? Yea… that's for a reason. And now I know this…

    So now that the rain is here, be sure to get yourself out on the nicer days inbetween the icky days at the very least!! If you find that you can't, or that there are too many icky days – maybe pick up baking and cooking! Start setting yourself up with snacks for the long winter ahead by making things that will last. Snacks are ALWAYS awesome on winter days!

    And while you are doing that, turn on commercial free music, dance to the super silly songs with kids if they are around, and just have fun! If you spend about an hour a day having super silly fun, even during the darkest of the rainy days, I'll bet you a beer that you will find it helps with your general outlook.

    This is #33 of 52 episodes for 2021!! 33!! it's the magic NUMberrrr!!! I hope that everyone out there managed to get that sunshine while it was still going strong!! It seems – at least here on the island anyways – that fall is making itself known now, with cooler weather and cloudy days.

    Clouds… but no rain yet… it's a little odd…

    If you didn't get the last of the sunshine, no worries! It will be back probably at least one more time before the rains and snows come. Remember also to keep up that hour a day thing I keep yammering on about! A good book, a nice drink – boos or not, whichever you prefer – and NO media!! I know I always feel a lot better after unplugging for a bit.

Plugin Catalog

I love this show for the plugins and how they rate the plugin. Lots of information about plugins. Only part that is not clear is the names of some plugins. Sometimes I’ll search for the name they give on Wordpress and I can’t find it.

Bryce Giesler ,

Plenty o' Plugins

I've been following this podcast for several months. Though I only support one website I have found several plugins that added features or helped me process things better.Good Job!

Reality501 ,

Too many interviews

Used to love the show. Went back and listened to all episodes from beginning. Was very helpful and insightful. New format not as helpful. Old show - 5 star. Now - 2 star, at best. Not going to listen any more. There are other shows more interesting now.
