    Let's Talk Movies #36 - 2020 - Yep it is a new decade

    I watched Gone with the Wind with my husband who's never made it through the entire movie before and my teenage daughter. The Wizard of Oz is her favorite film so I wanted to get her perspective on Gone with the Wind. She is in a high school drama program so she taught me a little about Gone...

    Britney Spears

    I don't think Britney has ever disclosed if she has a mental illness or not but I remember the head shaving incident and the rumors at the time were that her husband was going to get her drug tested to gain custody of the children so she shaved her head to try and avoid those tests where they...

    Royalty Thread #13: Zooming in on our favorite royals

    I thought Meghan's bright white dress really made her "glow" in a good way. The way a bride wants to be on her wedding day with all eyes on her. I really loved the dress she wore to the dinner as well.

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    We just finished watching Superstore and are looking for a new many seasons sitcom on Netflix. ANy suggestions appreciated. We have watched The Good Place and The Office already, tried Parks and Rec and Schitt's Creek but didn't take to it. I'm thinking of trying Community or Jane the Virgin.

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    If you know anything about Science DO NOT watch Stowaway on Amazon Prime. Sounded so good but oh my I couldn't get past the mistakes - assume they did not hire any scientists to help on the movie. The performances were all well done though so there's that. Also watched Greta on Netflix. It...

    Royalty Thread #13: Zooming in on our favorite royals

    I bought a custom made tiara for my wedding day because why not! And I tried to convince my sister and cousin to borrow it when they got married and they poopooed it - I guess they thought it was too much but how many days do you really have an excuse to be out in public with a tiara!! I told...

    Sleep Paralysis, Night Terrors, Lucid Dreams: Your Sleep Experiences

    I have very vivid dreams some wonderful some horrible. A funny one that I am sure people here would appreciate. After watching skating of the SLC Olympics my husband complained I was kicking him all night - he was like "what were you dreaming about you feet were going non stop and you kept...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    The best part of the wedding was watching Charles move into position and then walking Meghan down the aisle. He looked beyond thrilled to be doing it. You know if Harry and Meghan had hung on a little longer they would have been in lockdown at Frogmore Cottage and part of the Queen's social...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    I wish someone would calculate how much money from tourism they would make opening up all the private homes and palaces to tourism where the royals live. I know Buckingham Palace is open to tourists for the summer months while the Queen is away and we went to Windsor to tour it but then the...

    Royalty Thread #13: Zooming in on our favorite royals

    I'm sure someone will take care of the Corgis is necessary. My mom who is a senior and suffers from chronic pain (for half her life now ) lost her cat after 17yrs and we insisted when she was ready to get a kitten to go for it. We promised one of us would adopt him if it came to that. She is...

    Actor Christopher Plummer has died

    I was fortunate enough to see him at Stratford twice - once as Caesar in Caesar and Cleopatra and the next year in the Tempest. Watching him onstage with the other actors you could really see the difference between him and the rest of the company - I don't know how to explain it except to say...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    I do not like the superhero movies and I am really enjoying Wandavision. You do need some background for it who is Wanda who is Vision. I watched Avengers Endgame before mainly because of the hype so I knew some of their story. I decided to watch Age of Ultron since I enjoy Wandavision so...

    The Masked Dancer (Season One)

    i often wonder if the judges are given a bit of a script in masked singer and this show cause seriously where do they get some of these "celebrities" from and how do they know so much. There has to be some prompting since it isn't a contest with a monetary prize.
