I just saw the first new movie I've seen since 'The Help" came out. This
movie is"This Means War", starring Reese Witherspoon. Quite a fun movie
- she actually seems like a smart woman who is very single and alone but
looking for love. The comedy is good, and the action is relatively
limited to the very beginning and the very end so not a lot of violence.
The language and subject content a few times was questionable, but all
in all quite a fun movie for the monthly "ladies night" that I attend.
And I learned that peanut MMs and popcorn are great together, especially
while the popcorn is warm.

Rich says: Susan and I also watched this film the other night and were
pleasantly surprised. We liked it too.
Love the RDJ!!
I have read many of David Weber's books, both his series and his few
standalone books. Most have been very good, some excellent and a few
not as good but still enjoyable. I read a new one recently that was
just awful - "Out of the Black", an alien invasion story. It was so
bad, that I checked the publication date to see if it had been an early
effort that was only published now, due to his current popularity. Nope
- very recent!
**Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert!**
He had written himself into a corner, se he used a very heavy handed
Deus ex machina to end it. His protagonists discovered Dracula, became
vampires (who were actually just misunderstood!) and went onto the alien
ships and killed them all. This combined with the goofy gun-culture
details made it a very disappointing book, particularly considering his
previous excellent work.
I have just finished a rather unusual book called "Room," by Emma
Donoghue. Unusual, in that it is told through the eyes of a five year
old child, who, for reasons I won't disclose in case you want to read
the book, has been confined to one 12 x 12 room his entire life. I was
not sure I was going to like it, but I had to keep reading until I
finished it in one sitting. You just have to find out the mystery
For Lenoir/GA, re: Macomber books.
If you haven't read her "Cedar Cove" series, I think you would enjoy it.
There are 13 in all and I think they should be read in order. The
first is 16 Lighthouse, then 204 Rosewood Lane, then 311 Pelican Court.
You get the drift, each one is the next numerical. (44 Cranberry Point,
50 Harbor Street. Etc).
it's the same characters and then some added along the way.
Another good series of hers is "Deliverance Company". "Someday Soon is
first, Then Sooner or Later and finally The Sooner the Better.
