The Illusionist

I can't say enough about this movie. It was mesmerizing, clever, entertaining. The plot, the music, the costumes, the actors (Edward Norton was amazing). It was one of the best movies I've seen this year!!!! Don't miss it!

I'm happy to say that SUNLIGHT MOONLIGHT, A DARKER DREAM, MIDNIGHT EMBRACE, and EMBRACE THE NIGHT are in stores now at a new low price of only $4.99.

Getting ready to go on vacation can be a lot of work! We had to find someone to look after the tortoise and feed the cat. We took the dog with us and headed for the mountains in Northern California, up past Sacramento. Heck of a long drive, but oh, my, what beautiful country! Nothing but trees, blue skies, clean air, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, and streams filled with trout. We had a great time. I especially love feeding the deer. There was a doe and two fawns who came to our camp every day. We couldn't get close to the fawns, but the doe would eat out of our hands. They are such lovely creatures and the babies are so cute.

Alas, nothing lasts forever, and after a week, we headed back to civilization, congeted freeways, smoggy skies, and dirty laundry!
