August Monthly News

Welcome to the August edition of monthly news! We celebrated 9 years of blogging in August! It feels like it has flown on by! I appreciate all of you for sticking with me through the years! I had an aunt pass away from complications with her diabetes. She was an aunt through marriage, but it still hurts all the same. Also makes me think about my own diabetes, and that I need to keep taking care of myself. Enough sad stuff. Summer is almost over, oh wait, that's more sad stuff! I realized I did nothing noteworthy this summer. Did any of you have anything exciting to talk about? Fill me in! Let me live vicariously through you! 😁

The Dursleys were so mean that hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone--or something--starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival…

This is the tale of Harry Potter, an ordinary 11-year-old boy serving as a sort of slave for his aunt and uncle who learns that he is actually a wizard and has been invited to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Rubeus Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer. Famous for an incident that happened at his birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school. He soon finds, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he would have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are ones to be trusted.



My review for the book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
REVIEW: I saw this film when it came out, but I hadn't read the book until recently. I decided to go back and compare them now that I have read it.
I like both, but the book is bette…

On the surface, the Bayer-Boatwrights of Portland, Ore. are the model of a progressive, multiracial family. Greg is a respected philosophy professor and author; his wife, Audrey, is a former therapist turned conflict-resolution consultant for middle and high schools. Greg and Audrey have three adopted children, Ashley, Duc and Ramon, and a biological daughter, Kristen. But as Audrey prepares for Greg’s 60th birthday party, deep cracks begin to appear in the domestic façade, threatening to upend their very way of life, and they are eventually forced to take Ramon to Dr. Farid Shokrani, a Muslim psychiatrist with demons of his own. Created by Alan Ball (Emmy® winner for HBO’s “Six Feet Under”; Oscar® winner for “American Beauty”), the drama series HERE AND NOW begins its ten-episode season SUNDAY, FEB. 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.
