I thought about this post for a couple of weeks, the length of time since I saw the movie The movie was excellent. How do I know it was excellent? I was still thinking about it two weeks after walking out of the theater. But, Mitzi, there’s a rape, there’s murder, and blood. Yep, all … More The Revenant
The snow’s coming! The snow’s coming! Some people are happy: But not everyone… Run to the store. Stock up on bread, milk and eggs so you can make French toast or drink egg nog while eating a slice of bread… Yep. We’re doing a run.
