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.

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
