Link of the Day


I love this site so much that I almost don’t know where to begin talking
about it. I found it while looking for some information on Carol
Burnett, and then I discovered a treasure trove of videos from women of
all walks of life who have left an indelible impact on the world around

These are fascinating women who have been interviewed about their life
experiences and asked really good questions to answer in their
interview. You’ll find women in government, politics, humanitarian
pursuits, fashion, theater, dance, sports, movies, science, television,
journalism and business. (And that’s just a few of the categories I
could think of to list.) I want to warn you that this site can be time
consuming because you may find yourself wrapped up in watching the
videos, I don’t want to say this site is a time waster because you’ll
leave it so enriched that it could never be a waste.

To look at all the videos you can pick from just select Browse and then
scroll down the page, or you can filter them by category, most viewed,
latest, and Simple selects. But perhaps the best advice I can give you
for navigation is to dive in (there are a ton of featured videos right
on the main page to check out), but if you want a fun way to view the
videos during your visit click Moments at the top. Then select from the
traits (you can pick more than one) that inspire you and then click go,
and it will present you with videos that embody those traits.

No matter how you choose to view them, dive, and enjoy the videos.

I've just finished reading a most fascinating book. 'National Park
Ranger: AKA Bleeding Green and Grey' by Greg Moss. True Story. He was a
protective ranger, which means he carried a gun. He was search and
rescue and many tales of adventure, humorous stories and deadly


First let me tell you that I am not a big fan of actor, Christian Bale,
don't know why, I'm just not. I am also not a big fan of boxing movies,
but, I really enjoyed the movie "The Fighter", starring Christian Bale,
Mark Wahlberg, and Amy Adams. It is a docudrama about two brothers who
are professional boxers, one brother is trying to obtain the boxing
title, the other brother is just trying to help his brother achieve his
goal, and survive in his drug-filled world. It is a great flick and my
opinion of Christian Bale has changed, he gave a great performance. I
was also impressed by Mark Wahlberg's and Amy Adams's acting chops. It
is really a great film, I saw this movie through Netflix.

I also saw a 1996 film titled " The Last of the Dogmen" with Tom
Berenger and Barbara Hershey. Tom Berenger plays a bounty hunter who
searches the Rockies for three escaped prisoners, and what he finds in
the Rockies is a great surprise.
