Movies...

Last weekend, Cheryl and I enjoyed a very rare weekend with nothing to do. So, we spent most of Sunday watching old movies. One of the old movies we watched with "Stage Door" with Ginger Rogers, Katharine Hepburn, Eve Arden and Lucille Ball. It's a movie I've seen a couple of times and I enjoy it each and every time.

The fast paced speech and one line wisecracks makes one wonder why they don't make movies like this anymore. Why is it that most of the movies advertised have buildings blowing up or families in torment? What happened to good writing?

I think good writing has gone the way of special effects -- meaning that they (the movie makers) are spending so much money on special effects, they don't have any left for character development and writing.

And, that's just a shame.

God Bless

Family Video

Okay, is it just me or is it wrong for a place to call itself FAMILY Video when it will be opened from noon to midnight on CHRISTMAS?!? Don't they care whether or not their staff gets to have any family time? Who needs to be out there renting videos on Christmas Day? It's bad enough that there will be football being played when families need to spend time together.

We wonder what has happened to family values in this country and this is what has happened to family values. We have placed renting videos higher than spending time with our families. The right wing can blame gay people all they want for the deterioration of family values, but in reality capitalism is killing our family values.

God Bless!
