AARP Is Good. #8

By: GardenGrrl, 4:09 PM GMT on August 21, 2014

So it is the end of August and weather here is hot. The big news was 6 count 'em, 6 inches of rain the other day. Truly amazing. My yard is pretty again.

It's my short weekend and I have a lot of errands to run so not much going into the blog this time around. Was thinking about rainbow pictures but can't find mine in the vast storage of Flickr. That'll teach me not to put my shots in albums to find later. Hint; if you are new to Flicker, group your pho...

Robin Williams was one of our greatest comedians.

It was a huge surprise to find out he had
been battling depression and committed suicide.

My worry is that others who struggle with depression will now see this as encouragement to
give up and commit suicide as well. If you are struggling with depression and his suicide
makes you feel like maybe it would be okay to kill yourself, PLEASE DON"T.

Talk to someone. If yo...

Into The Storm; A Review

By: GardenGrrl, 4:20 PM GMT on August 09, 2014

First and most importantly it must be noted that no cows were harmed in the making of this film.

It would be easy to dismiss "Into The Storm" as formulamatic and cliche. It is a disaster
movie and somehow the writers have to try and make you care about the characters in two
minute "life briefings" before they unleash the mayhem and special effects.

So one could critique it purely on what techniques they used to get us to care about...

108f Really? #42

Shrub Roses grow great in Texas. They need lots of pruning which sometimes becomes a blood sport. I would wear leather gloves and a long sleeve blue jean shirt and still get impaled somehow.

I also have an Evil Cockatoo named Syd. We are thinking of changing his name to Hannibal Lector because he is a charming conversationalist. He entices you to pet him while cooing things like: "I love you", "Peek-a-boo" and calls everyone in the house by name, even...

Roxie Hollywood Film Fest

By: GardenGrrl, 3:30 PM GMT on July 17, 2014

Hey, we have rain!!! Lots of rain all day long. This is good. What is more fun on a rainy day than sitting around watching movies?

Okay, there are a lot of things that are more fun to do when it's raining if you have a touch of ADD. For those of you that are a bit more sedate, how 'bout cute animal videos. Okay, my cute animals to be exact. Ok? :D

It'll be fun.

Here is my latest video starring Syd and Roxie. A plague of locusts has...
