I'm upset because we were supposed to watch two movies this weekend and he is stuck on basketball, which just the other day he called the stupidest sport on earth.

What's the last movie you watched?

I hear you, PF. However, if I am forced to watch any sport, I would prefer to watch basketball. At least the ball moves. Soccer, baseball and football are extremely painful for me to watch, I would rather watch old men fish, or paint drying.

I'll have to look up a movie for tomorrow.

We're pretty indifferent to college basketball, preferring football since Himself is an Ohio State University alum. However, we did have our favorites to hope for in spite of not watching/listening. Both Wisconsin and Michigan State are Big Ten teams, so we were pulling for them. Alas, Michigan lost, but Wisconsin pulled the big upset by beating undefeated Kentucky. Oh Yeah! Come Monday, it's the final game of Big Ten vs a team with a Polish coach. I win either way! Besides, baseball (on the radio, Dawg, because even though I love the game it is boring to watch) starts for me at 7:10 when my Indians take the field.

Now with baseball season starting, I'm not sure we'll be watching too many movies. And there are quite a few good ones we are interested in. I'll have to keep adding them to my list on my library account.

I want to be able to see an old man (Himself) painting.

Interstellar was pretty damn good. I like that it used real science, time dilation, and a really cool twist on everything else.

We watched '50 Shades of Grey' last night. It was ok. I liked 'After Fall, Winter' (similar type of film) much better.

I found The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and DVRed it, on the advice of so many of you all here. Going to start it now.

We had just finished watching a "Castle" rerun, and Himself had flipped over to a Samuel L. Jackson movie, "Cleaner". The summary sounded intriguing, so I stuck around for two hours. The movie probably could have covered the entire plot in a half-hour less time, but then there were all those commercials. It was still kinda interesting.

Going Clear. Fascinating documentary on HBO about Scientology.

Women’s Institute film group last night. We went to see“Woman in Gold” with Helen Mirren at our little privately owned and family run cinema. We were seated on the back row - it's been a long time since I sat there


It was very, very good. Even though I knew the outcome it kept me on the edge of my seat and even this hard-bitten old bat nearly needed a box of tissues on a couple of occasions.


Normally I don’t have much time for Ms Mirren but she carried the role well. A touch of the Bette Davis in a few scenes but not too intrusive.


5* recommendation.

I just saw the Documentary "Just Eat It - A food waste story" and it is must see.



Can Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin survive for six whole months on discarded food? That is the full on premise for this 75 minute documentary.

A lot of the produce just does not even get to the grocery store due to it not being perfect says the documentary.

Grant and Jen go through many a dumpster bin just to find food. One was from a food shoot for a pizza place which had lots of good chicken thrown out in a dumpster.

Another dumpster was fully loaded with Hummus and it had at least 3 weeks left before the expiration date.

One segment was with Grant picking sweet potatoes that were in an unharvested area of a farm that all got donated away.

Grant and Jen photographed what they ate and cataloged all the food they did pick up. They sure did not eat like a poor person. Dishes looked pretty gourmet to me

You will watch both of their struggles to have a normal diet and fill the fridge with food. Watch as they spend little money over six months as well on food.

This documentary is a complete eye opener on our food supply.
