C Is For Cake


Cake.
We all eat it. If you say you don't eat cake, you're probably a closet cake eater. It's the staple of birthdays!!

I get my special cake in December. Have to eat everyone else's cake throughout the year. Not that I mind that much.

Which brings me to my point.


How many of us will celebrate our 91st birthday?? Not too many I would imagine.
My sisters' father-in-law just turned 91 on Saturday and this is his cake. Henry is a sharp, intelligent, bookloving veteran of the Korean War. He is originally from Prince Edward Island, with Irish roots, but has lived in Ontario for a long time. Whenever I visit my sister, who lives with her in-laws, Henry is always sporting a big smile and has a book in hand.
It was truly an honor to celebrate his birthday with him.


As you can see, he is not loving our rendition of the birthday song, but again is filled with smiles!!
This is a classic Henry moment!  One I will always treasure too.

As I look back on this day, past birthdays and more birthdays to come, I can't help but wonder why cake? Why has it always been the go-to item for birthdays? Why not steak. Yeah, big ole birthday steak!!

I'll tell you why...
Imagine frosting a steak. That's why!

Okay enough of my cake and birthday rambles... time to "C" what you have going on.

No one has ever guessed Emily’s secret. Will you? A happy marriage. A beautiful family. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new? Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
