I look to YouTube for documentaries. For example, Niall Ferguson's The Ascent of Money has been posted by several people. This version has all the episodes together.

Sometimes when I want a relaxing break I like to watch short videos of Goro, the Welsh Pembroke Corgi who lives in Japan. Many times he is just doing ordinary Corgi dog things:

Great Thread. It led me to find this:

I get most of my DIY tips from you tube videos. Including an engine overhaul of my boat motor. I put up a few of my go pro videos on you tube. But I'm still an extreme amateur. Here's one of my pontoon boat a few days ago at a 40 degree sunrise. I processed it in 1080, so it looks better if the viewer changes settings to 1080 HD. Music by John Mellancamp in the theme of "The Perfect Storm"

All of Henry TrikeLife's stuff is good!

That's my kind of entertainment...Doing Stuff! I probably spend more time searching out neat things on Utube than watching TV anymore.

These are better full screened...

Here's one for those of us that frequent the casinos.



I don't recommend trying this!

I always enjoyed Midnight Special in my teen years (what I remember of them).

Two Favorites at Our House

For pure mirth:

John Branyan's "Shakespeare's Three Little Pigs"

Jeanne Robertson's "Never Send a Man to the Grocery Store"


Then, once hooked on these two, it's fun to follow up with some of their other sketches.

Sarah...Mickey the cat has now watched the birds on Utube...and he likes it. Mickey says he wants one that is a little warmer outside since his old bones likes it warm.

I think this is a brilliant ad:


Most of our viewing is on PBS so few commercials.
