It's really a small thing. I woke up this morning but Truvy and Tramp were still sleeping so I turned on the TV and started flipping. To my delight and glee, I discovered that LOGO is the new home of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! It's been years since Buffy's been on TV and I have missed her. Oh I know I could have bought and watched the DVDs but I'm not a DVD watching kind of guy. Woohoo, Angle is tied up shirtless and being tortured! Welcome back Buffy! If you don't get LOGO, you can go to and watch online.

Countdown by
Thanks to everyone for stopping by for a visit.
Thanks to my 48 Followers.
Thanks to all my many commenters.
Thanks to my new friends.

I started this blog solely for the purpose of easier access and tracking of the blogs I liked to read and follow. Then one day I decided to fill the empty space to the left of my blogroll and have built up momentum ever since. As I approach my 1st Blogversary, 20,000 hits, 200 posts and 50 followers, I hope to continue to make my posts interesting and coming and that I continue to evolve as a blogger/writer.

Have a Happy New Year and may 2010 be filled with love, happiness, good health, good friends, good food, good times, better politics, more peace, more understanding and less CO2, less violence and less ignorance.

I have a few celebrity crushes -- Jakey, Brad Pitt, Chris Evans and today it's Bradley Cooper.  I first saw him in Alias and it's been lust ever since. So I was just over at Yummy of the Day where they had these pics of him walking his dog and I had to spread (pun intended) view. I added the one in the tub (my favorite) and the one in the pool.

I saw this movie for two reasons. First, a friend loves SJP and I thought being able to talk about the movie could help develop the "friendship." Second, I couldn't find parking so I was too late to see It's Complicated
The Morgans are typical New Yorkers who live a rich, glamorous life and a life that for them only exists in NY. Their hectic, NY lives are aided by their dependance on their electronics and assistants. The Morgans are separated and after a "let's talk dinner" witness a murder that sends them into the Witness Relocation Program -- in Ray, Wyoming. From here you can write the movie. Very typical, no surprises, should have been titled, Hugh Grant and Carrie Bradshaw in Wyoming

5 FOR:
  1. Damn! Hugh Grant is looking fine! He is aging well and shows some damn sexy legs.
  2. Mary Steenburgen is a breath of fresh mountain air in this mostly stale movie.
  3. If you ever wanted to see Carrie Bradshaw ride a horse, shoot a gun and shop in Costco (or known as Bargain Barn in this movie), this is the movie for you.
  4. Hugh Grant is Hugh Grant from Four Weddings, Notting Hill, Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics, and Bridget Jones and there's nothing wrong with that. I like the character, his wit and sense of humor; however, this movie is the least likable.
  5. I'm still working on this one.
  1. Every scene which shows SJP's hands. She has some real old meat hooks that she doesn't even bother to put polish on. She must have a nail biting problem.
  2. There is no chemistry between Hugh and SJP. There's no real anger, no evidence of a glorious lost love and no passion reborn.
  3. There are many actors who act the same in every role but Hugh seems to play the same character in every movie. He even tells the same jokes and observations.
  4. I couldn't understand why I wasn't hearing Carrie's thoughts.
  5. It's not an intolerable movie. I sat there and chuckled every now and then, really didn't care that it was so predictable and never looked at my watch. I suggest waiting for the DVD or cable as I have for all their other movies. I just wish I had something more positive to share with my **cough** potential new friend.

It was a dark and stormy day (I think I'll use that as the beginning of my novel) so I headed down to the beach to check out the surf. The wind was gusting, the rain was like bullets against my face and the surf was high, rough and covering about 75% of the normal weather beach.

I took these pics on and of the boardwalk. There were about 8 guys out surfing but they were so far out that the camera couldn't pick them up; however, I was able to photograph the cute teenager.

Today is beautiful, sunny and warmer, about 50 degrees and most traces of last Saturday's storm are gone.

Inspired by but not as well executed as  No Excuse, No Explanation's Scenic-Saturday.
