I just discovered a cable channel is showing "Hogan's Heroes" repeats every night. In every episode the good guys win, the Nazis are inept and Sgt Shultz 'knows nothing, nothing!' It's quite the balm for what's happening in the real world, politically speaking.

Otherwise, tv-wise, The Librarians just ended. The show's cute enough, and I was happy to find out it got renewed, but I really can't say I'm remotely fannish. Honestly, though, other than Lethal Weapon (which is SO GOOD), I can't say I'm fannish about any show I'm currently watching (mostly Lucifer, Timeless, Grimm and Sleepy Hollow) or somewhat following (This is Us, Legends of Tomorrow). And I've totally given up on Flash, Arrow, Blacklist, SPN, Teem Wolf, NCIS:LA (RIP Miguel Ferrer, you were a good egg) and... probably others?

In attempts to eat healthier I've stopped getting the delicious, but probably totally unhealthy muffins they sell in the supermarket and tried to start making them more often. I came across this easy mug muffin recipe which makes just one large muffin with very little clean up needed:

- ΒΌ cup of ground flax seed meal
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of oil (I just eyeball it)
- 1 egg
- pinch or two sugar
- raisins or other dried fruit

Mix together in a mug or smallish microwaveable container with a fork, microwave 45-60 seconds.

When I'm more ambitious I make these http://gyzym.tumblr.com/post/35309900247/the-best-motherfucking-muffins-you-will-ever-make (but with tweaks, using a 15oz can pumpkin and replacing half the oil with unsweetened applesauce and then baking 24 as muffins and one smallish loaf all at the same time) and then freeze a bunch for later (unless the kids are home because wow they can eat a lot).

It's been in the 30s here. In January. When typically it's in the negative teens or twenties. We've even had RAIN. But climate change isn't a thing, not at all. *sighs* Molly's happy about the lack of negative temps, and the cats are liking all the squirrel activity, so it's not all bad I guess.
