The Swedish Chef and PAM

Jarrod Fairclough – You know what I love besides Muppets, Netflix and crying at Pixar films?  Cooking.  I’m terrible at it, and it will likely take me three hours to make 3 minute pasta, but I love it.  And my recent find was cooking spray – how did no-one tell me cooking spray was a thing?…

Billy On The Sesame Street!

Try A Little Kindness…

Jarrod Fairclough – In an increasingly negative world, it’s important to remember to be kind to your fellow man, no matter what your differences are.  Thankfully Sesame Street have released a catchy song reminding humanity of this fact, with the help of Hamilton star Chris Jackson.  They sang the song at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade…
