Movies for hot summer afternoons

I am enjoying this BBC presentaion.

After watching My Neighbor Totoro I requested all the movies by Hayao Miyazaki.
I hope this one is good.

I am waiting for Spirited Away to become available.

Summer shows

We saw "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" 
while in Portland, Oregon.
I love the subject.
These 32,000 year old cave paintings 
are awesome.
I did not care for the 3-d filming.
I would have enjoyed the film more with less Warner Hezog and more time looking at the Paleolithic Art.
Even with all my reservations I am still happy
these images have been filmed.

The kids sent home some shows for us to watch during summer reruns. I like the t.v. series  Castle and Bones.
I think the actors were on these series.
I never have watched a Buffy episode.
My daughter gave the scary warning.
I might not take.

I have requested a few movies from the library
that the kids suggested.
I also am planning a movie night out.
I want to see
"Cowboys and Aliens."
I think Harrison Ford is a cowboy.
Yet I always seem to support the aliens.

April's Music and few more movies

My study of coffee this month has been enhanced
by listening to music.

My study of France has been delightful.

Claude Bolling is my favorite musician.

He is the best.

These are some of my favorite classical pieces.

We have had a few rainy days this month.

I am adding the works of Shakespeare to my monthly studies.

I found this BBC television series while looking in my
library's on line card catalog. One of my favorite activities is
searching in the card catalog.

I am so pleased to have a bit of archeology to watch.

I have begun requesting movies from the library.

I read there was going to be a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie
and I had never even seen the first.
So we are having a Pirate's festival.
Maybe when #4 comes out we will go to the theater!

I really enjoyed this film.
Makes me want to write a cookbook.
Something about fresh from the Kitchen Garden.
Camelot and Spring just seem like a perfect fit.
I am thinking about having a chick flick night.
Maybe one of my girlfriends would like to share a bowl of popcorn and a sing along!

January Music

We listen to Asian influenced music in January.

Rampal is my favorite flutist.
I enjoy findng new music and new to me instruments.
We listen to music most of the day

and evening.

Music sets the mood.
These are just a few of the fascinating
selections we have out for January.

Christmas Music

We have been listening to lots of music
this holiday season.
We listen to many different types of music .
Today we have chosen ancient sacred music
and chants.
We change what type of music we listen to.

In December we also listen to old English carols

and new compositions.

A few great movies

We just finished watching Amelie.
I enjoyed this film.
I was totally entertained.

This was so fantastic!
I have seen Cirque Du Soleil live and would love to see all their shows.

Michael Clayton was an interesting movie.
It took me awhile to understnad and to even care what was happening.
I almost quit the movie after the first half hour. It finally grabbed me.

This Nature program made me want to go to Yellowstone in the winter.

is January 15-25th.
Lots of fun!
