December Monthly News


                     Welcome to the December edition of the monthly news!
This month was off to a bang! I won a ticket to stream The Wilderness and The Trews concert. Two really awesome Canadian bands! That was such a great time, although not hearing a crowd  and seeing the band between plexiglass was weird. Still, it was a great show!!
What's the best concert you have seen? What is the best prize you won from a radio station? Just curious!
I made my reading goal of 50, and then surpassed it with 66 total for the year!
Feel pretty good about that. Brain food at all....
This has been a terrible month for losing loved ones.
My aunt passed away on December 5th, and then a good friend and neighbor passed away on December 7th.
All right before my birthday.
Sent me into the biggest depression. Which I know is going to be extra hard to get out of with COVID restrictions and the way life is now.
Sometimes life just really sucks. Especially the death part.
We buried her on my birthday which really sucked.
My Uncle Andy gave my sister and I both lockets with her ashes. I treasure it greatly and haven't taken it off.
So yeah, I levelled up on the 10th. Level 44 now!! 
We had The Keg, takeaway. Still good. Drank some champagne and had a nice day. Considering...
My hubby went above and beyond to make me happy though. Thanks babe!
Christmas is a strange time. And now it will never be the same again.
Social distance visits to my family are fun... NOT. I hate not being able to hug and kiss my family. Sadly, I have 4 siblings and we are not in the same bubble. Porch visits and 6 ft talks were all we could do. Made me so sad. I hate COVID.
It didn't help that my Uncle Bob passed away on Christmas Day. 
All of those hugs that I wasn't able to get, I really needed more than ever.
He did not pass from COVID. His kidneys shut down.
Three people I love all passed in their sleep.
I tell you I can't wait for New Year's.... I just want 2020 to be over with already!
Although 2021 will probably bring alien invasions and super volcanoes...

Please be responsible and stay safe everyone! Life is shorter than you think. 🙏

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

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
