New Hobby For The Kid

While I loved playing games with the kid – the spouse prefers that she does creative work like clay making or beading – otherwise, she wants her to be out playing with her friends if the weather is good.  Today she wanted me to order some beads for her on the internet and I found [...]

The Devil Inside

I had expected this show to be a lot scarier but it’s filmed like a documentary about a girl looking for closure or truth about her mother’s killing of 3 person 20 years or so ago. While in Italy – the church did not think that her mother was possessed – 2 other priests thought [...]

HayWire Movie Review

The movie is nothing about the movie title at all – but I figured with Michael Douglas in the movie, it wouldn’t be too bad a movie. But Michael Douglas only had a small part in the entire movie – we saw him like maybe 3 times in the movie.   Ewan McGregor was also in [...]

Blackberry Playbook Keyboard

The Blackberry playbook keyboard that we bought was on sale at a local yardsale and I figured it would be good to own since we do have a playbook.  Typing would be so much easier for us when we need to type a email – and having the cover adds double protective measures to make [...]
