Under The Boardwalk: The Monopoly Story

So Much More Than A Board Game

This captivating exploration delves into the captivating world of passionate Monopoly collectors, while also following the vibrant players who eagerly compete for the esteemed title of Monopoly World Champion. Experience the phenomenon of Monopoly as it transcends cultures and brings people together, transforming a simple game into a cultural phenomenon of epic proportions. Join us on this thrilling journey into the captivating and competitive realm of the Monopoly World Championship.

I believe that most individuals have played Monopoly at some point in their lives. Personally, I found the game to be enjoyable, although I never considered competing seriously. Undoubtedly, there are skills and strategies involved, and luck can also play a significant role. Regardless, I take pleasure in engaging in board games with my loved ones.

The documentary tells the history of the game and how it is still going strong in its various editions. It is more than merely a fun game — it is a learning tool to help with basic math skills. For some it is the first time some had money to count in their hands. It is an experience many will never forget.

I Was Thinking About The Tokens

I don’t know if I had a favorite. I liked the top hat and the thimble. I may have used the iron and the wheel barrel at some point. Oh, and the Scotty Dog! 

The Under The Boardwalk Prime Video Was Informative

I did learn a lot about the game. I had no idea there was a national competition. It wasn’t anything I gave much thought to, but it was a competition everyone could try to qualify. You don’t need great strength or special skills. It’s a game everyone can play. I encourage you to view the video and dig out that old Monopoly game you have tucked away in the closet and have a game night with your family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by!

Amazon Prime Has A Wonderful Selection Of Movies And Series — Plus Amazon Originals

I Enjoy Selecting And Watching Movies As The Mood Strikes Me

I remember when I had the cable movie channels. I was stuck with their schedule and their selection. We did have the option of renting movies or buying the videos. I personally enjoy not having the clutter in my house. Yet I have a wonderful selection of movies and more available to me “on demand” with Amazon Prime Video.

I highly recommend you become an Amazon Prime Member — you’ll get more value than only movies, but this is something you need to check out and decide for yourself. I enjoy watching movies and series and documentaries, etc. on my laptop. I can sit in any place in my house and even out on my patio to view my movies or work on my websites. 

I enjoy my leisurely lifestyle. I do thank you for stopping by!


Medium — A Beautiful Series On Amazon Prime

Medium — A Beautiful Series On Amazon Prime

The genre of Medium is Suspense, Drama, and Fantasy. This series centers around a woman who has dreams about crimes. She is married and has three daughters — and there is plenty of drama. 

The main characters of Allison DuBois — Patricia Arquette, Joe DuBois — Jake Weber, and Manuel DeValos — Miguel Sandoval along with others make up this delightful series.


It’s never my intention to give spoilers , , , but . . . I must say that this series ended very well in my opinion. I believe it followed the basic premise of life with its ups and downs and natural progressions,

This is an entertaining series. There were times I became frustrated — it may speak more of me than the series or the behaviors of the various characters. Yet I did want to watch every season, There have been some series I watch a few episodes and move on, but not with Medium.


I Believe Medium Is A Worthwhile Series To Binge Watch — I Did!

You can escape and get caught up in the characters and the actions. It tells a slice of life we may never experience, fortunately, for ourselves. It is about crime, the awful things in society, and the lives of those who investigate such issues.

I encourage you to take a look at it or re-experience it from when you watched it back in the early 2000s when it was originally broadcast on television.


The Book Vs. The Movie Which Is Better?

Over The Past Several Months I’ve Been Watching Movies — More Than Once — And In Some Cases I Felt I Wanted More Information About The Movie Or The Characters In Particular.


It became clear to me that I needed to see if the movie was based on a book — so I did some research and found that there are audible books available — this was so very helpful . . .

I did receive the information I was seeking and I thoroughly enjoyed having a book read to me. I’m enjoying audible as much as I’m enjoying watching movies.

I Do Have An Active Imagination

While listening to an audiobook, I can close my eyes and actually see what I’m hearing. I find it quite amazing. 

Of course the authors are quite talented, but so are the narrators or readers — many have beautiful voices and do make changes with the different characters they’re depicting.

This is a time for me to relax and truly get into the story being told to me.

Welcome to TwoCansOnAString.com. I’ve been in “holiday mode” for quite some time thinking about this website and my newest one. I was basically looking for inspiration, tips, or suggestions and discovered some wonderful “good reads”. You seriously can’t go wrong with audiobooks — if that is at all your thing. This has truly been a great adventurous journey for me. You may want to join me by selecting some audiobooks in a genre of your choice. I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed.

There Are Countless Things You Can Do Around The House While Listening To Your Audiobook

I’d suggest minimizing the use of the vacuum cleaner and refraining from making excessive noise, but you can certainly engage in light housekeeping activities to maintain tidiness around your home. It makes dusting and cleaning much more enjoyable while listening to a good book in the genre of your choice.

This is quite a comprehensive list I’ve gotten from Audible’s website. I’m sure there is something there that appeals to you and everyone in your family.

I’ve been exploring other genres that previously I would not have considered, It has definitely opened up a new world to me. That’s true with Amazon Prime as well. I’ve gotten into some genres that I ignored for much too long.

This is an excellent time for me to re-examine some of the classics I may not have fully understood when they were first introduced to me. Plus there is truly something about having a story read to you. It brings back memories of my childhood — Although I enjoyed being read to, I was eager to learn to read on my own. Now, in my latter years, I’m gravitating back to wanting to have stories read to me. Go figure.

The best thing about Audible or audiobooks is that you don’t need bookcase space. I know for some of you, you enjoy the feel of an actual book in your hands. I personally don’t miss it. I really enjoy having an audible library of hundreds of books without cluttering up my house.

Which is better? The book or the movie? I would have to say it depends on the book and the movie. I would think each offers something unique — it all depends upon you and how you interpret what you’ve read or viewed.

I encourage you to give Audible a try. And leave me a comment telling me your thoughts on the matter.

Thanks for stopping by!




Delighted To Get Orders Within Hours Not Days

I Am Not The Most Patient Person . . .

I’m most delighted when I discovered overnight delivery on some items with my Prime Membership.

I don’t know about you, but I’m like a child when it comes to placing an order and wanting it immediately.

I love online shopping. It allows me to shop in the comfort of my home without having to get dressed and going out, fighting traffic, looking for parking, and walk through crowds of people . . . And, if an item is unavailable at one store going out to find it elsewhere.

I Don’t Want You To Do Anything That Doesn’t Seem Right For You

To be honest with you, when I first signed up for Amazon Prime I didn’t think I needed it. I wasn’t placing that many orders. I thought it was an expense I didn’t need.

As it turned out, I was ordering more and not having the added expense of shipping. I was able to send products to family and friends at no shipping cost to me. The benefits paid for my membership and I continued.

I’ve spoken with friends who also have Amazon Prime and I’ve discovered that they are ordering more items than they had previously because of the convenience. It does take time to decide what you want and to locate it and look at all the other related products . . . but we do that in the store when we’re shopping. At least by shopping online we’re comfortable and relaxed. We can take as long as we like to decide what to purchase.

The Best Part Of Shopping Online Is Putting Items In My Cart And Waiting To See If I Want To Go Ahead With The Purchase

Just Because It’s In Your Cart Doesn’t Mean You Have To Purchase It Right Away

It’s in your cart so you don’t have to look for it again. You can take your time checking out. There’s no time limit. Amazon never closes. 

The time you take to decide may alter delivery dates, but you never have to feel pressured. That’s the beauty of online shopping.

The first time I was offered the overnight deal — from 7 AM to 11 AM, I couldn’t believe it! I did want my item and knew no place locally had it, so I had to order it. This was almost like going out and getting it, but without going out and getting it — except it is on my front porch.

I do like the convenience. I do enjoy getting items in many cases faster than it took me to decide to order them. Like I said earlier, I’m not the most patient person.

One big bonus is Amazon Prime Video. I enjoy that as much as I enjoy shopping online. But, that’s me. Initially, I wasn’t into the movies or series . . . but I gave it a look and became hooked.

Now I don’t know how common this overnight delivery thing is in your area. I’m fortunate enough to have a place or several places close by that allows for this service. It’s so wonderful for me and if available in your area, I’m sure you’d enjoy it as well.

The Christmas House Is Now Playing On Prime Video

I’m watching a lot of Christmas Videos. Variety is the spice of life and I’m able to savor it with the wonderful selection offered.

I’ve found what works for me. I’m sure you know what is best for you and your family. I’m not into high-pressure sales. It is annoying and dishonest as far as I’m concerned. I’m just sharing my views.

I do love family-style movies. Movies you can watch with family and friends as well as movies that are about families. Especially when it comes to bringing families together for Christmas. And this one does deliver as far as I’m concerned.

Of course, everyone has their problems and concerns and they bring them with them — too bad we can’t just discard some baggage along the way, but the Christmas Season has a way of making things work out — maybe even better than anticipated.

The Christmas House is worthwhile. It had its highs and lows. I wouldn’t rate it high, but not too low — it’s an all-right movie.

If You Don’t Have Amazon Prime I Believe It Is Worthwhile To Check It Out 

Black Friday is coming!! Amazon always has great sales and discounts. Being a Prime member has a lot of benefits. It is well worth the annual fee. Of course, that is only my opinion. Ask your friends and family and see what they have to say about it — You may be surprised to learn that more people are Prime Members than you realized.

I’m in the mood to buy something and I am offered overnight delivery of that item. Wow! 

I’m in the mood to watch a movie or a series — I check out what is playing on Prime Video and immediately I have something to watch. And if I don’t happen to like it, I can stop it and make another selection.

Instant gratification is a wonderful thing — it usually rarely happens as quickly as we may like — but it is possible on many different levels.

I’m Prime and I’m delighted. My friends, family, and neighbors are Prime as well. It is amazing how far-reaching Amazon Prime is . . . So many people are truly reaping the benefits of their membership.

You decide what’s best for you. My job is just to let you know my excitement and what I’ve experienced. This overnight thing is excellent!

Thanks for stopping by!
