AcornTV Streaming: Iconic Pair in an Aussie Gem! Darby and Joan

by Kathleen Costa


AcornTV is a harmless vice I plan never to drop. On the cusp of the baby boomer era, I grew up with television enjoying reruns from the “Golden Age of Television” to new shows that are now classics. I was introduced early to many British productions like The Avengers, but those Brit sitcoms and dramas were few and far between…until now!

by Kathleen Costa


Digby Sloan has been hired as security for a 300-year old wooden icon called the “Kangaroo Dreaming” set to be the premier piece in an exhibit at the Royal Museum of London.

Jamie Quinn Mystery Collection By Barbara Venkataraman: Audiobook Review

by Kathleen Costa


This is truly a delightful, entertaining series! Jamie Quinn may be a bit quirky with some low self-esteem issues, but one can easily identify with this young woman just trying to find her way. She loves her family, is loyal to friends and clients, misses her mom who recently died, and discovers she is more capable than she ever imagined…very realistic from her engaging first-person narrative. These books are quick reads, or listens in my case, but not short at all on enjoyment.

How I Met My Dinner: Thanksgiving According to Ex-Pats

by Alicia Lieu



With the holidays coming, I became increasingly nostalgic for Thanksgiving with my family. It is just not feasible to fly cross country for a few days, even if I can get the days off of work. Because I happen to be holding down a retail job, holidays are the busiest time of year and difficult to request off. Not to mention that airfare the week of Thanksgiving is noticeably higher than the rest of the year. At least in New York, however, I’m still in my home country.

The Cat House On The Kings: Ending 2012 With A Big Meow

by Jackie Dale



Things have been hopping at the Cat House on the Kings. We just had a film crew come all the way from Australia to film a segment for the show “Bondi Vet.” Normally set on the fabulous Bondi Beach in Australia, the Cat House proved so compelling a subject that the show made the arduous journey to California to film a segment for their television show. Veterinarian Dr. Chris Brown is quite handsome and had all the ladies in quite a dither!
