Just Dialogue: Movies/TV Shows I Watched during Quarantine (pt. II)

Even thoooough 'outside' has opened back up... there is still a full pandemic going on.  Being in the home majority of the time is the new norm.  Like part. I, this is just dialogue.  No "reviews" per se, no order.  Just sharing.  This post is long overdue and some I watched months ago will reflect that.  These are ones I recommend.  I decided to keep a few of the ones I thought were ok and/or hated (i.e. The Little Things) off the roster.

Start Up

An engaging series about Tech. Money. Murder.  All wrapped in one.  Once you get into it, you can't get enough.  The first couple episodes may start off a little slow, but hang tight... you're in for an unexpected ride.  You can find all three seasons on NETFLIX.  Double claps for Ronald Dacey.  


There's still time: 7-Eleven Free Slurpee Day to Continue the Entire Month of July

 Normally, 7-Eleven would celebrate it's Free Slurpee day on 07/11 to commemorate its anniversary.  This year would make it the 94th to be exact.  To make this anniversary sweeter, the corporation will be celebrating all month long.  This means the free slurpee promotion is extended through the entire month of July.  Now, this doesn't mean you can get a free slurpee everyday BUT you can pick any day out of the month as opposed to honing in on one day.  Download the 7Rewards loyalty app and you'll receive your coupon there.  With the way July has been HOT, this is a treat everyone can enjoy.
