Back in mid-November 2005 you may recall that I blogged about a new show on PBS called Real Simple. Well, now that it's been on for a couple of weeks, I thought I should blog about it again. A series recap thus far. The show is hosted by three co-hosts/actors with somewhat varied acting backgrounds. Rob Keefe is my favorite of the three so far, though none of the three is what I would have envisioned as hosts of a tv show put out by Real Simple Magazine.
The show itself reminds me a lot of the original Martha Stewart daily show with the annoying soft focus camera shots and the 30 minute show is like having a show dedicated just to Martha's 'Good Things.' Hey, now there's a show for you Martha, 'Good Things.' Hmmm... Anyway, Real Simple the show has some potential to move on to one of the main networks (NBC, ABC or CBS); especially if they lose that fuzzy soft focus lens! Just kidding. Anyone else catch the show and if so, what'd ya' think?

Premiering Monday evening on the Discovery Home Channel is Martha's old show From Martha's Home. On January 28th, From Martha's Kitchen premiere's on this same channel. I wasn't much of a fan of either of these shows, but thought I would blog them anyway for those that may be interested.

This coming Sunday (January 8th), the USPS will be raising the price of the first class stamp again. Now it's going to cost you .39 to mail that letter. With yet another rate increase I now expect my grumpy, disgruntled mailman to cheerfully deliver my mail in a timely fashion six days a week. Here's a glimpse at some of the new stamps at the new rate - Curious George, and just in time for the movie due out on February 10th!
