Roku is the best cheap technology that I have ever bought! I've had one for a few years.

We love our Roku! We had never even heard of it until James saw it at the store. He bought it and we have been very happy with it.

I'm getting a little behind! Lately we have watched "The Polar Express," "Christmas Vacation," "Surviving Christmas," and "Christmas with the Kranks." We have a lot more Christmas movies (including "It's a Wonderful Life") and not much time left to see them! We also have a great New Year's movie that we watch every year, Queen Latifah's "Last Holiday." If you haven't seen it yet, you should go get it now! So funny and heart-warming!

We just finished "The Raven," starring John Cusack. Excellent movie! It isn't Edgar Allan Poe's story, but it is about a killer who is inspired by Poe's stories. The police inspector recognizes the similarities and asks Poe to help him. If you like CSI type shows and old fashioned mysteries, you will want to see this one.

I hope you like it as much as we did.

Tonight we watched "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." James liked it, and I thought it had its moments, but honestly it was one of the stupidest movies I have ever seen. For a movie to be believable the laws of nature have to apply to the humans, but Lincoln (and a few others) defied gravity and who knows what else, to the point that it was farcical.
