I have no idea what the EU and this series has in common. Other than Vampire Legends being of European Origin.

The Twilight Saga is a series of supernatural romance fantasy films from Summit Entertainment based on the four Twilight series novels by the American author Stephenie Meyer. The films star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. The series has grossed over $2 billion in worldwide receipts and consists, to date, of four motion pictures. The first installment Twilight was released on November 21, 2008. The second installment, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, followed on November 20, 2009, breaking box office records as the biggest midnight screening and opening day in history, grossing an estimated $72.7 million. The third installment, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was released on June 30, 2010, and is the first Twilight film to be released in IMAX.

tried to watch steven king's bag of bones first half on last night, i won't be watching the second. i appears impossible for hollywood to translate his books to the screen. the only scene that was true to book, was when the bus hit his wife. i actually gasped when i saw it. it was all down hill from there. what was done to "the shining" was just so wrong.

I agree.

I enjoy Stephen King books but, some of the movies turn into some sort of cartoonish odd comedies. For me the movie is always better if I have not read the book first.

I've spent the better part of an hour looking in last year's receipts for a particular bill. Haven't found it yet. I do save so much paperwork -- receipts, legal docs, and of course tax returns -- and try to file it logically. Most of the time I find whatever I'm looking for, but often at the cost of time and plain old frustration. I get so annoyed and wish I could just pitch or shred or burn everything and be done with it, but that would just produce more frustration and time spent trying to recreate or re-document when something comes up. I don't envy my kids when it falls to them to go through this garbage; but since it probably won't mean anything to them, maybe it won't be so bad. An oil drum and a match should work nicely.

^^^ An oil drum and a match won't work for me since I live in the city.
Using a shredder, I've shredded thousands of pieces of old receipts and docs over the last couple of years. Aside from what can't be filed electronically I keep a large 4 drawer file cabinet, but not nearly as full as it used to be. This is one area which has simplified my life.
