Birthday Cameos

My Cameo videos from Harry Potter actors, a birthday gift from a special friend.

Spooktacular Halloween!

If you know me at all, you know I often go all out on Halloween. Please watch my short video to see the Halloween Display I created this year, in part inspired by a Spooktoberfest contest we’re having at work. Great way to spend a weekend! Creating creepy things! We carved pumpkins on Halloween and…

National Despair

Today on The Daily Rose, i’ll be talking about the uncertainty of our future in the United States and the despair and depression it’s causing in so many, including me.

Glorifying Murder

Today I saw Kyle Rittenhouse was trending on Twitter again, so I had to look. I was immediately furious, so there was nothing else for it. In fact, this might be less of a podcast episode and more of a rant. I realized when I started reading, that I haven’t been looking at Twitter much…
