the little things Sunday, Jan 31 2021 

I don’t remember a time when Denzel Washington has given a bad performance. This portrayal of a California cop is one of his best. It is deep and subtle. Well written and directed film also. There are no definitive answers as to whom the serial killer is at the end of the film – but I suspect that happens in real life. The seedy underside of Los Angeles is in full view.

The Dig Saturday, Jan 30 2021 

I’ve heard some reviewers panned this film – but I’m not going to follow suit. Carey Mulligan does a fine job portraying her character as does Ralph Fiennes – and it is quite a remarkable story- a true story. As in life, there are moments happy and sad. But it is a quality film about an incredible discovery at the opening moments of World War II.’

Promising Young Woman Thursday, Jan 21 2021 

This is a tour de force for Carey Mulligan. Indeed she plays a promising young woman. In fact she is so in character she was hard to recognize at times. There is Oscar buzz about her performance and it is well deserved. The “Me too” movement should be pleased. A spotlight is being aimed at the mistreatment of young women by immature young men – or men of any age. I won’t spoil it, the ending is unusual and surprising.

Pieces of a Woman Saturday, Jan 9 2021 

A gripping film with a redemptive ending. If you’re pregnant , I’d maybe pass this up. As careful as “Call the Midwife” in portraying childbirth accurately; it seemed even more immediate and painful before and after the birth. The female lead is very very good and is paired with Shia Lebeouf- who shows us more than once that men can cry. I would say it is a woman’s film. My husband said it was painful to watch.

the Butler and Sunday nights Sunday, Jan 26 2014 

Re: the Butler It’s a well done movie, but it didn’t give me goosebumps… It did point out the difference between the older “don’t rock the boat” generation and the “freedom riders”.

On TV On Sundays we have all the heavy hitters on at once. Downton Abbey, the Good Wife, sometimes Sherlock and True Detective vie with each other.They are all superb. Thank heavens for On Demand. Also may I say this seems to be Matthew McConaughey’s year

my favorite stone Turquoise Thursday, May 9 2013 

from the site Emily gems the meaning of Turquoise

Turquoise Gemstone meaning

Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.

 

Strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and connection to the spirit world

 

If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

This stone is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it. Turquoise takes on the characteristics of the owner.

Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. It is one of the oldest stones known. This is a stone that a person must learn to attune to instead of the stone attuning to the person. It is important that the owner of a Turquoise give it the proper attention.
