We love comics around here. Webcomics, comic books, graphic novels, you name it. I remember growing up with so many favorites…Garfield, Family Circus, Bloom County, B.C., Beetle Bailey, Hi and Lois, Dick Tracy and yes, even Nancy. Of course, my all-time favorite comic was Peanuts. I not only read it religiously in the newspaper, but collected the books and absolutely devoured them. I still have many of the books, although they have now yellowed with age. I am just not willing to give them upRead More
I have been finding lately that I really enjoy watching people who are passionate about what they do. Their enthusiasm becomes very infectious and you can’t help but get a smile on your face.Read More
We went to see WALL*E the day it opened. The boys had seen the previews and Kyle especially really wanted to see it (he has an affinity for "cute" things and WALL*E looked adorable). I have to admit that it was not anything like what I expected and I loved it! Besides the animation being incredible, the fact that they were able to tell a story with virtually no dialog through almost the first half of the movie blew me away. It is amazing how much you can get attached to a non-verbal trash compactor...and how much can be conveyed without words. Incredible. While I was watching it, I was wondering how this would capture really young kids (my boys 11 and 8 loved it). But from what I have read, it seems to spellbind all ages from preschoolers on up to adults.
