what’s on.. my tivo…

an occasional look at my video/streaming/video/show watching, whew..

Some notes on my list..

  • A few new PBS’ series I hadn’t got to yet…
  • CBS Sunday Morning episodes I often watch with dinner…
  • The Magicians is an older favorite, and new episodes are online to watch later (the link takes me to both my recordings, if any, and streaming episodes)…
  • Southern Charm is a guilty pleasure (I used to live in Charleston)…
  • Project Blue Book – the show was cancelled after 2nd season, but I have all of Season 2 to watch, or not.

In comments, if anyone can guess who what show is partly visible in the upper right-hand corner, has good eyes ;)…

Tuskegee Airmen Veterans tell story in ‘Red Tail Angels’ – VAntage Point


Black History Month is a chance to celebrate and honor Black Americans who trail blazed paths for future generations. Among those trailblazers are the Tuskegee Airmen.

The 99th Pursuit Squadron activated March 23, 1941, in Tuskegee, Alabama. The Tuskegee Experiment was the first of its kind, producing an all Black unit to fight during World War II. Tuskegee graduated its first five U.S. Army Air Forces fighter pilots March 7, 1942, and more soon followed.

In late 2020, the Air Force produced a three episode series called “Red Tail Angels” to tell their story.

Here’s a link to Episode 1 on YouTube:

These policies would make the transportation system much safer—and less stressful—for LGBTQ+ travelers.

When Pete Buttigieg was sworn in as the 19th Secretary of Transportation earlier this month, he became the first openly gay man to be named for this role in U.S. history.

Buttigieg—known for his military service and former role as the mayor of South Bend, Indiana—was chosen for his ability to bring all facets of the Department of Transportation together, according to President Biden. Those facets include improving transportation by rail, air, and road, as well as overseeing the Federal Aviation Administration and Federal Highway Administration.
