Happy Anniversary: Has It Really Been Three Years?

Sitting here recovering from being forced off the road on my bicycle Tuesday, my Internet came up briefly to show I’d gotten a trophy from WordPress. My connection then disappeared for hours so I hobbled around and did dishes and continued to put frozen vegetables on my swollen legs and ankles. Later, it came up… Read More ›

Real Life in the Desert: The Lizards are Getting Bigger

When I first moved down here in the real desert, the lizards were these teeny little dark shadows that flitted over and around small rocks and pebbles. Now the little fellers are getting bigger and longer, and scrambling over stones and the odd smallish boulder. They must also be that bit slower as I can… Read More ›

Before I Go To Sleep (DVD Review)

Jeremy Clarkson: The Man the BBC Loves to Hate

The way the BBC act, one would think that Jeremy Clarkson is the devil incarnate, or at the very least Bernard Manning reincarnated. He is, in essence the man that the BBC love to hate. For those who do not know who Manning was (he died in 2007) suffice to say he gave the politically… Read More ›

Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle in American Sniper

American Sniper: Sergeant York for a New Generation

While reading the reviews of the Clint Eastwood/Bradley Cooper feature about America’s deadliest sniper, aka American Sniper, it is easy to be reminded of another film about a decorated war hero. One Sergeant Alvin York (played brilliantly by the iconic Gary Cooper [the Clint Eastwood of his day] who won an Academy Award for his… Read More ›
