A New Idea


Many of us have issues, quirks, and problems that had their inception at childhood.

As I finish book 12, it occurs to me that all my lead characters have issues from their past that hamper their present.

Any friends out there who deal with things from their childhood? I'm no shrink, bu…

What exactly is Rosebud?

For me, the view of the sled is a statement on the deceit of the pursuit of happiness.

Irma Makes Me Think of Disaster Films

As we waited to be evacuated, disaster films came to mind for discussion. Which one tops your list?

Which movie comes to mind when you found yourself rooting for the bad guys?

The first movie that comes to mind is Back Street which is about a man, played by John Gavin, who is tricked into marrying a drunk, when he really is in love with Susan Hayward's character.

Fresh off the Kindle Presses~The Good Little Nurse-based on my mom's story

Any examples of a movie that's better than the book version?

I have no trouble thinking of examples of books that are better than their movie counterparts, but it's hard to find movies that are better than the book.

What are your thoughts on serving on a jury?

Twelve Angry Men was my first introduction to the jury system, and ever since watching that movie, I've longed to sit at the long table and argue the facts. I've never made it past the waiting room. I don't care if a haze of smoke hangs over the room as it did in the movie. I don't care if personali…

The Princess Bride-Why I love it

I have seen this wonderful parody innumerable times, but it never gets old. What's not to love? Giants, priests with lisps, Miracle Max, Pirates named Robert. What makes it so fun is the irony of it all. It's ironic that the hero and heroine are named Buttercup and Westley rather than, say, Aurora …
