Friday Stuffola *Excerpts from a birthday celebration*

     Wednesday was my birthday.....we met my Mom for brunch, came home and watched a very cool DVD....here's the link for it  Allman Bros. Please Call Home Dvd.  My husband had ordered it being a huge follower of their music, i learned alot about the band I had never known. Awesome Band!!  Gregg Allman's Laid Back album (i had it on vinyl) a masterpiece!!!! The procededes from the sale of the Dvd help to support the Big House (the home the band and friends lived in for a time), which is now a museum. So check out the site.....
     Later that night we dined Al Fresco at a local Italian restaurant....and the Peach Sangria's were delightful.......it was a lovely birthday even though we had a terrible thunderstorms throughout the day.

Sunday Morning *MINI RANT* Raven Update info.

OK......it's another Sunday morning. I decided to go through my blog list and post comments and investigate. My significant other, aka "the engineer" was fooling around on You Tube....here's what caught his fancy this morning (i must say it made me chuckle) don't say I didn't warn you and i hope i can get this link to work.*Engineer brain snack* .
     Last night we went to the movies, The Girl Who Played with Fire, I just love that actress,Noomi Rapace, and the series in general. I can't fathom that Hollywood is going to ruin this for me by doing a remake (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) with Hollywood people. Please God No!!!! I adore Ellen Page but would hate to see her mess up her supernova career by stepping into this role. The girl from Twilight...No! Dakota Fanning....give me a break...No!...Daniel Craig is going to play the journalist....I'm actually at peace about this. If Hollywood redoes this that mean it's going to be inherently better? Some things are best left alone....you can't top this one Hollywood....Good Luck trying....You have my deepest sympathy.


I did check out Jane Fonda's blog this morning because it had some info about Katwise (an etsy seller) I have one of her cool a** sweaters. Maybe will add some more linkypoo's if i get around to it!
