Now, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout....

What a difference a couple of days makes:

So, what do we have to do to get some white stuff?


On a different topic, and revisiting yesterday's movie discussion, a couple commenters asked for more movie reviews and recommendations. So I thought that maybe in a future post I'd come up with a list of my all-time favorite movies, if that might interest anyone.

Tonight, I will recommend an independent movie that I saw about a year ago, and thought was just wonderful. It's called In America, and is a story about a modern-day Irish immigrant family adjusting to life in the U.S. I give it 4½ stars out of 5. Beautifully acted, beautifully told. It's probably not suitable for small children, but I'd recommend it for anyone else, although the 18-25 year-old male demographic might find it a little slow for their shoot-em-up action/adventure preferences.


Movies and the weather.

I must be really hurting for blog fodder.

I really really liked In America! It had a nice mix of fantasy and reality, and I loved it when the kids roller skated in the flat. And the guy upstairs was AMAZING!

Nice choice!

I like In America as well. It was a little dark though (if I remember it correctly.)

Isn't the weather strange?? Shorts weather to sweater weather in less than a week....

When I saw the temperature change, I thought that you might live close to me (in NC) because we've experienced the same drastic changes.

I'm so glad you like the hat pattern. If you ever knit it, you MUST send me a picture, ok?
