This one has a scary title, but it can be relaxing.  Haunted Halloween Mansion Fireplace with Thunder, Rain and Howling Wind

And if you needed to use the bathroom while you were there, it might look something like yours!  :laugh:

I can see the value. I've used the "fire in a fireplace" channel at Christmas, even though I have an actual wood-burning fireplace that I hardly ever use.

In an effort to destress, I have started watching mindless Christmas shows. Yesterday was "A Castle for Christmas" with Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes. Unfortunately, it put me to sleep and then I woke up early and started stressing out again.  :-\

Not the channel, but I'm using the Jacquie Lawson London Advent Calendar online for the very same thing!

A neighbor highly recommends this movie, which focuses on gay men's romance. She says a friend of hers was involved in making it and that it's been very well received.





Also, this is hilarious:

Thannks, I'll check that one out.

It's not even 8 am here, but I've already listened to Hauser, the cellist, in concert, and it has worked wonders! Next I'm going to go sip some turkey broth!
