We Saw Philomena tonight. It’s a great flick

(From Wikipedia) Philomena is a 2013 drama film directed by Stephen Frears, based on the book The Lost Child of Philomena Lee by journalist Martin Sixsmith. Starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, it tells the true story of Philomena Lee’s 50-year-long search for her forcibly adopted son, and Sixsmith’s efforts to help her find him. The film was co-produced in the United States and the United Kingdom.


“Easy as Pie” Apple Cobbler

We took this for dessert tonight at my folks for Memorial Day dinner. It’s easy and delicious. Follow soupdiva.net today.

The Soup Diva

2 cans apple pie filling
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Spray 13 x 9 x 2 cake pan or casserole dish. Dump pie filling and spread into even layer; sprinkle cake mix evenly over apples. Cube butter and arrange on top; sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 350 (325 for dark pan) for 45 minutes or until browned. Allow to sit before serving.


(For those who remember Po Folks, this is nearly identical to their cobbler! Of course, you can make this with any fruit you choose.)

They Call This Thing Blogging: Perhaps It’s More

It starts with a thought in our minds, then travels to our fingers to the device we use to connect with the world.

Our words come forth like a waterfall on to the screen to be seen by people who only seem to exist in binary.

It’s those moments in time when a post is what someone needs the most.

We do know our words will mesh with theirs to make a wonderful community of different thoughts, feelings and emotions.

The many words are pressed here forever more.

Their words come forth on that screen which makes them real, organic, pure.

They call this thing blogging and we know for sure that it inspires us to do something more.

My friends keep on blogging, lets all see what is in store.

Positive Rants

Really positive people can rant too every now and then. Stuff bothers us too so we gotta let that out. How we respond to what we rant about tells something about us. It’s my thought being positive doesn’t always mean going with the flow and letting things go all the time. Really its OK let it out and hopefully solve a problem or two. Be positive even times when you have to be negative.

Another Rant

It bugs me when I am trying to make a point in a conversation and people just say “I know” or laugh nervously. There are times when I want to be serious and for someone to be dismissive bugs me. You know it makes me wonder if there is something wrong with me. or is it that what I am saying is just going over their heads. Respect is a two-way street and to be rude like that is not cool.
