A little hard to follow...but good

Written by
Sunday afternoon I went to see the movie Oppenheimer starring Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr, Emily Blunt and others. It's a movie that entertains you and makes you think at the same time. I thought the performances were very good. I also thought it's a little difficult to follow, but not so much that you get lost - I am someone who can get lost in a movie somewhat easily, but I was fine. If…

Not sure about this one either

Written by
Yesterday I talked about the mustard Skittles. Today, I feel I must talk about the Frosty Cold Brew at Wendy's. In all fairness and full disclosure, I do not drink coffee. I like the smell but cannot stand the taste. I'm sure if you DO drink coffee though, this will probably be a win! I mean...C'MON it's a Wendy's Frosty! I am all for dipping your fries in the Frosty..YUM!!! Since I think dipping fries…

Why Mustard?!

Written by
I mentioned last night that Skittles is adding a new flavor to a bag of candy near you - mustard. They've teamed up with French's to make these available for National Mustard Day August 5th. My question as Scott Wynn would say is "Do we need this?" My thought is a big NO! This just sounds absolutely disgusting. I do not like mustard. If it ends up on a hot dog or hamburger by mistake…

This show should be cool

Written by
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the theater. Not for a movie...but a play. I like a good broadway musical, and there is almost always a play that Great Lakes Theater puts on every year that I want to see. This year, that play is "Dracula: The Bloody Truth". The synopsis is that it's told from Van Helsing's point of view and is the story of Dracula. Except, this is…

I made a much-needed purchase this weekend

Written by
I think I have mentioned it here before. Many moons ago, I kinda fell onto my living room coffee table. After said day it was quite wobbly. Still managed to do its function but was just not as sturdy as it once had been. I have been meaning to replace it for some time now...and over the weekend I FINALLY did! I went shopping at Abbey Ann's on Cuyahoga Falls Ave in Akron to see…

Ohio dreamin'

Written by
My oldest brother and his family are in town from Southern California and we are all getting together at my mom's this Sunday. My other older brother will be there as well, and hopefully my sister and her daughters can make it too. If we are all there, it'll be the first time we've all been together since December. We are planning to do some swimming (my brother's littles are 6 and younger), so they'll…

Happy Belated Gotcha Day!

Written by
I HAVE to wish my fur buddy Buttercup a belated Happy Gotcha Day! I say belated because it was actually on Tuesday (the 18th). I thought about it last week, then got busy with other things and totally forgot until yesterday...shame on me!!! He is a very vocal cat. He tells me everything that is on his mind. EVERYTHING! Yet, somehow this one slipped his mind....I think because he turned 5 or 6 this year,…
