Best social media platforms in 2022

In the last 10 years, social media platforms have changed rapidly. Initially, Facebook was the most popular social media platform but has since declined in popularity due to privacy concerns and changes in its algorithm that favors engagement over good quality content. Instagram has become the most popular social media platform with Snapchat following close behind. Both of these apps are much more focused on visuals as opposed to text and this makes them more attractive to users who prefer to share their lives visually.

I am thrilled today to be reviewing the latest Sherlock Holmes book by Nicholas Meyer, and we have an interesting interview with Nicholas. Had I realized his connection to the Classic Star Trek movies there would have definitely been some Star Trek questions in there too! Maybe next time. Sherlock Holmes and Star Trek are two of my favorite things!

The residents of the Shakespeare-themed town of Ashland, Oregon, are accustomed to annually celebrating their Shakespeare Festival and routinely performing the Bard’s many plays. As winter sets in, bakery, winery, and now creamery owner Juliet Montague Capshaw is even more thrilled when one of her Torte bakeshop staff connects them with Javier de la Garza, the director of the Southern Oregon Museum of Art. Together they are able to bring to SOMA the Shakespeare’s Lost Pages exhibit, which includes not only his rare books and artifacts but also the highly coveted and newly discovered Double Falsehood manuscript.

KRL always enjoys taking a look behind the curtain of local theatre. We have interviewed actors, singers, dancers, directors, and more. This week we are interviewing someone who either has, or will be doing, most of those during his time in local theatre, Shawn Williams. Recently he was seen reprising his role of Buddy in Elf at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater, presented by Good Company Players.

All it took was the impulsive – and desperate – purchase of a lottery ticket for waitress Kari Stuart to be able to turn her life around and find a new purpose. That came when she found a stray kitten, which in turn inspired Kari to purchase a run-down animal shelter and renovate it into a much-needed pet rescue shelter. That doesn’t mean that Serenity Sanctuary still doesn’t need financial support, though, which is why Kari let herself be talked into helping her friend Suz Holden at the Tri-County Kennel Dog show.

Now that we’ve settled into the New Year, commercial attentions have shifted to the next major holiday: Valentine’s Day. Which happens to be when my latest book, Mulled to Death, takes place.
