This incredibly quirky comedy is one that I really enjoyed. It's not a laugh out loud comedy, in fact it's not so funny at times. But it really gets you to thinking and you'll want to know what will happen. I wonder what others will think of it since it is so may think I'm off my rails, so after you watch it, let me know what you thought.

Video Warning

On the FOX news the other night, there was a report that scientists in the UK had put together that says that if you watch four or more hours a day of television, it will significantly shorten your life. They tracked over 8000 people and found that those who watched two or fewer hours of television per day had fewer life threatening problems than those who watched four or more hours. So now, my attempts at watching less video has taken on another dimension. They also say that those who spend the same kind of time on computers or any other sedentary activity run the same risks. Oh great!

Julie and Julia

January 5th, I've been avoiding watch TV this year (five whole days)to get more done and have a better quality of life. We went to some friends' home and watched Julie and Julia. It was so good, I wanted it to tell more of the story, I didn't want it to end. It showed two very compelling stories. Meryl Streep nailed it, she was so convincing as Julia Child. Sometimes I don't care for her because she plays the part of brooding serious women and no matter how good the performance, I don't care for the character...but this is not the case with this wonderful, thoughtful movie.

It got all of us thinking about food and we are planning another movie night where we bake some great recipes. You'll want good snacks before and during this movie!
