This month will see the release of several long-awaited movies, not least of which is the fourth Indiana Jones film: Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, coming 20, yes, 20 years after the last one. I hate to say it, I really like these movies and I think alot of Harrison Ford's acting, but when I see the pics of him for this, he reminds me of my dad. Probably not what they wanted for the star's image.
We had a great meeting this week of the Jane Austen Book Club. Thanks go to English native Mary Wyatt, who made delicious salmon and cucumber sandwiches and Jean Davis who provided the food. Mary regaled us with stories about England and her memories of English teatimes. We had 10 people join us for the tea and also the discussion of Mansfield Park. We also had two different versions of MP running on video.
Looking for some tongue-in-cheek adventurous humor to share with the family?
In celebration of National Poetry Month, why not check out something from our diverse poetry collections?
