June Monthly News

Welcome to the June edition of monthly news!
   My favorite season is here and I couldn't be happier! I love summer!
Too bad we are currently under severe heat, and will be all week long.
My great-nephew Wyatt was born June 3rd, 7 weeks early! He wasn't doing so well, as his lungs were not fully developed. Please keep him in your prayers. Thank you!


Some prayers for my great nephew Wyatt please. A post shared by Freda Mans (@fredasphotos) on Jun 3, 2018 at 3:20pm PDT Update on Wyatt; He is breathing on his own, although he has a CPAP if necessary. He still as an eating tube as well. He is strong and although he has a long road ahead fighting a rare genetic disease, he will live a long and full life. Thank you for the show of support!

Super Troopers 2 #Movie

AVAILABLE JULY 17!
Rated R
100 minutes
AMAZON US   |   AMAZON CA

Super Troopers 2 is a comedy film directed by Jay Chandrasekhar. It's a sequel to the original Super Troopers movie by the Broken Lizard team. When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers are tasked with establishing a new Highway Patrol station in the disputed area.


REVIEW: Hilarious! So many laughs, and a decent story take up the length of this film. Some American bumbling troopers, mixed with some Canadian bumbling mounties are the premise for this one. Which side gets the land and gets to govern over it? Will it be known as Canada or America? Getting these answers is the fun! The Canadians are not portrayed as they usually are. So nice and apologetic.... yeah, that's so not what we are, and what we are, that it was nice to see us portrayed like normal people who can be jerks. I laughed pretty hard at times. So did the hubby. Neither of us were sure it would be any good. Most sequels suc…

The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson (27)

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his alcohol consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey. It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory: Not only has he witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, he has actually played a key role in them. Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared has charmed readers across the world.
Jonas Jonasson is the author of the novel The 100-Year…

The Greatest Showman #Movie

AVAILABLE NOW!
RATED PG
105 minutes
AMAZON US   |   AMAZON CA   |   AMAZON UK
Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?

REVIEW: I can see why this movie was so highly acclaimed in the media. It was one of the best musicals I have ever seen. It had songs that were supe…
