Awwww, sorry you weren't impressed.
I love Betty Davis movies. She was a classic. Nobody like her.

Thought the ending was the best, just as she found out what actually happened she makes the comment to her sister. Quip toned. "And we could have been friends!" I would have added on " BYE SNOT! Enjoy your 3 hots and a cot in hell.. Don't do me any favors by saving me a spot. I'll be at the beach."

I thought it was good until the ending.
I can let a few over the top things go, but them going unnoticed on the beach for that length ot time... between the other beach goers, the cops, the vending stand guy... with Blanche laid out like a mummy, the car in the middle of the road... I don't know. I just felt it was a let down for the way the movie had been going. I guess I was expecting something different, so the twist didn't affect me as much.

LOL!

It's Kaliforniaaa.. Anything is a possibility.
You'd be surprised at what's really ignored here. People are allowed to camp at some beaches. I think somewhere there is a nude beach to.Yeah the vending guy was an illegal.. Say nothin' until you have to. Cops?.. what cops?

Every time I've been to the beach I always walk back to my car shaking my head in wonder. " Did I just see that?"

I really like their spices.
Nice! I love free and free shipping, I'll spend extra to get free stuff... Friends of mine ended up with a dish towel in their Christmas present so I could get free shipping.

And my last KAF order was more than is should have been because I could spend X amount more and not raise the shipping cost...I think they can see me coming.

Good morning everyone

Lovely morning here and it is going to be a wonderful sunny, warm day!

This morning we have been doing a little bit of tidying up in the garage, enjoyed our breakfast outside on the patio and been on the pc ever since

This afternoon we are going to watch The Return Of The King on blu ray...we so love those films

Hope everyone is having a lovely day/night!

I live out in the country and a fellow I know from a town where I grew up moved into a house in a development near me, and one day as I was driving by his house he was talking to the guy that owned a small farm patch and an orchard, so I stopped to say hello and we got into the conversation about developments coming in the township and my buddy said soon there wont be any open space it will all be built up, we should do something, and the farmer turned to him and said thats what we said before you moved in and we laughed because it was the truth.

Now if you buy a place next to a pig farm, what do you expect it to smell like wild flowers....LOL

Lots of farmers are selling off their land and the only ones who can afford it are the developers. Bam, instant 'burb.
