I am not too much of a movie person. But that is one movie I want to see. I don't know if they showed it in the movie, but when he was alone with his wife, he didn't stutter. That is often the case with folks who stutter. It is a matter of the person who is listening, to have patience while the stutterer tries to get the words out. By using patience, the stress soon disappears.

As for movies, we watched two, in sequence. The first one, Monday night, was The Mask of Zorro with Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It was great fun and swashbuckling as required. Loved Hopkins in his role. Certainly different than Silence of the Lambs.

Then, last night, we watched the next one, The Legend of Zorro. Just as good as the other and it had some of the greatest funny moments. Pure fun.

I was impressed with how Banderas handled himself, particularly with a sword. I did a little sleuthing and learned that he'd seriously trained to do all the sword work, along with training in horsemanship.

I just love the Zorro stories and would never miss an episode of Zorro on TV when I was a child.

The Latest Sherlock Holmes Film

Buon Giorno,

I have always been a Sherlock Holmes fan and had even seen the Broadway Theatre production many aeons ago and all the Classic Original Films and have read all of Arthur Conan Doyle´s works on S.H. ...

The photography of the European cities, was spectacular ...

We enjoyed.

Ciao,
Margi.

Katie H.

Water for Elephants is one of my favorite films and felt it should have won the Oscar in February - March 2012.

Reese truly is a fabulous actress ... Very fond of most of her performances.

Rosie the elephant: She has a strong message for the world; an elephant never forgets ! and every louse has their day ...

Cats never forget either, and horses and donkies ...

How are your lovely zucchini and tomatoes ? What had you landed up doing with all those veggies ?

Have a nice wkend,
Ciao. Margi.

Katie H.,

I have always been a big Zorro fan too ... I liked the 1st Zorro with Anthony Hopkins better, than the 2nd ... Anthony did a fab job as the original Zorro.

Catherine was stunning when she was young. She had not looked her best, the last time I had seen photos of her in Mallorca ... Perhaps due to all the stress from the illness of Michael Douglas ...

Fencing takes alot of training and discipline ... They had some classes at the old Gym which closed unfortunately ...

Kind regards.
Margaux.
