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. 🙏

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. 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

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
