One Film in the Cinema & One T.V. Show

Buongiorno,

Firstly, the Vet and I had gone with friends and their 16 year old daughter to see The Hunger Games. From my point of view, the subject matter had no appeal for us. The teenager had read the book and was totally engrossed. We had treated her, as a Happy Birthday gift.

Espaņoles En El Mundo ( Spaniards in the World ) is a weekly T.V. show which we follow, and is about living, working, eating and cultural entertainment of places, in which Spaniards have relocated to ... It is chockful of facts, details, fabulous photography and interesting tidbits to see, eat, do and enjoy. Last night was Geneva, Switzerland.

Have lovely day,
Ciao,
Margi.

We have watched the first two installments of Hatfields & McCoys on History. Not a movie, but a miniseries.

So far so good, wonder if there will be any cast members left at the end the way they are dropping each other.

Glenn and I watched all the episodes and really enjoyed it. Yes, they sure did some "eliminating," didn't they?

Glenn was gone most of the day helping his son move some equipment, so I watched a movie from the library I knew he would prefer not to watch.

It was The Other Boleyn Girl and I really enjoyed it. I'd read the book quite a while ago and appreciated the movie, especially the scenery and period costuming.

My youngest son #3 has a plethera of first cousiins in the McCoy clan. They are from his paternal grandmother. She grew up in Pike's County KY. A true coal miner's daughter. Hillbilly through and through. Her mother was a McCoy. When I mentioned this fact to him, he asked "Is this something I am supposed to be proud of? I had no answer for him.

I remember reading that book in the fourth grade. I loved the story.

We went to the theater last night & saw "Snow white & the Huntsman". It was an action packed movie. It had a good storyline & was not boring at all. How much are movies in your area? We paid $27.00 for 3 of us.
