It’s A Fun Friday

Hello there Friday it’s good to see you. I hope you are having a great day in advance of the weekend.

At midnight Taylor Swift released new music which is always fun for her many fans. The new album is named “Midnight” and from what I hear it’s well received. Her songwriting is terrific and she is a great performer.

The Hallmark Channel in America has begun its “Countdown to Christmas” original holiday movie extravaganza. It’s 24-7 movies about the most wonderful time of the year until January 2nd.

We can’t forget there’s Halloween fun to be had in most places. America still has Thanksgiving coming up. One thing at a time in its own time.

Love and peace to you all good people.

The Holiday – A Holiday Favorite


I am a dude who loves a good rom-com and “The Holiday” is indeed a holiday favorite. Nancy Meyers gives us a comedy that is romantic, complex and very contemporary. Kate Winslet, Jack Black, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Rufus Sewell and the late Eli Wallach make this movie something special. When people trade where they live their lives anything can happen.

Will Ferrell is fantastic in this story of a man named Buddy who was raised from infancy in the North Pole by elves who work in Santa’s workshop. He finds his real dad in New York City and adventures ensue with his new found brother. He also finds love with a department store worker named Jovie. Buddy helps restore the Christmas spirit.
