Tomorrow we're going to see the latest Star Wars movie. I can hardly wait!
Dr. Who: Dark Water/Death in Heaven Last night we saw the movie Doctor Who: Dark Water/Death in Heaven, the TV show’s two-part eighth season finale, now out on the big screen. This movie, along with the prequel The Doctor’s Meditation (which came on after the movie) gets all the fans excited for Season 9, which… Continue reading Dr. Who
Book Review: Cat Girl’s Day Off -- by Kimberley Pauley This book was hilarious! I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time. Set in a modern day Chicago where people have important Talents (superpowers), teen Natalie Ng (pronounced ‘Ing’) only has the embarrassing talent of being able to talk to cats, and she doesn’t… Continue reading Cat Girl’s Day Off
It has taken me a few years of starts and stops, but I am finally finished my niece’s quilt. Yeah! I stitched the last of the binding today while listening to the movies Fellowship of the Ring and Breaking Dawn 2. As you can see, Rocky likes it too. I sure hope Stephanie likes it.… Continue reading The Quilt is Done!

The movie reminded me of a family vacation to the Cape Kennedy Space Center where we saw the relics of the space program. I was amazed at how flimsy everything looked. We sent them out… Continue reading Space, the Final Frontier
Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband for 32 years of adventure, love, and laughter. One of the most important things we've learned is to have a sense of humor. After our wedding in Alberta, Canada, we were driving down to Sam's parent's house in California, when we noticed smoke billowing out of the trunk. We… Continue reading Happy Anniversary
On Friday night we went to see Red 2. My husband and sons loved it. It was a typical male action/comic book, shoot-em-up, blow-it-up, car chase movie. Yes, on one level it was funny. The violence was so over the top that it became impossible and ridiculous. But I came out feeling as if I’d… Continue reading Wanted: Chick Flicks
What do you say when you wake up and feel blah: a day when you're at the end of your rope, and there's nothing you can think of to say? As Mary Poppins would tell you, the answer is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Ha! I feel better already. My favorite movie from childhood was Mary Poppins. I enjoyed… Continue reading Mary Poppins
Last night we watched the Academy Awards, the event where the who’s who of Hollywood pays tribute to its own for excellence in film, the MC cracks tasteless jokes, and we see the amazing results of plastic surgery and Botox. The best part of the evening was when the cast of Les Miserables came out… Continue reading And the Oscar goes to…
