Movies, In the News, and Enjoy

Movies - Laura and I enjoyed a festive four-day weekend. It was difficult returning to mine office after four days of lounging! It became particularly uninviting when I walked to Mr. Nitro R/T and saw that he was fully encased in frost!

Caution bade me to exercise patience. Soon, Mr. Nitro's defroster, the warmth of the sun, and judicious employment of Mr. Nitro's windshield wipers cleared the windshield sufficiently to allow safe travel to mine office.

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas dinner: Roast chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, dressing, cranberry sauce, and Brussels sprouts.

Until Laura gleefully displayed the Brussels sprouts she purchased at Raley's, I had never seen the little cabbages fresh from the garden! I was amazed to see how they grow!

We watched several movies:
We thoroughly enjoyed Out of Time. The film stars Denzel Washington and Eva Mendes. I recommend this movie highly.

We watched The Equalizer. This is a great movie with non-stop action, great acting, and a great story. Denzel Washington plays a man with a mysterious past who is driven to help those in need of help. I highly recommend it.

We enjoyed The November Man. Pierce Brosnan plays an ex-CIA operative brought back in on a very personal mission. I recommend this movie. It has great action and many surprises.

We watched Maleficent. We thoroughly enjoyed Angelina Jolie's performance. The combines elements of several fairy tales—most noteably "Sleeping Beauty." Laura enjoyed the movie so much that she re-watched it several times. We highly recommend it.

We watched The Interview for a few minutes. It was so foul that we found ourselves unable to continue watching it. I cannot recommend this movie.
