This week’s film depicts something I enjoy, producing a blog post. I was not able to come up with a way to record how I come up with an idea, nor the event leading to the idea. This is simply how I assembled the post before this one. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m going to start out with an admission that I probably ought to make more often. I don’t know anything about what I’m writing about.
More specifically, I don’t know anything about The Hunger Games. I do know something about cornucopia and have written about it in the past. I don’t know how cornucopia fits in to what seems the big movie of the season.
So There I Was, Minding My Own Business
So much of life starts that way, doesn’t it?
I noticed Thursday on Facebook that a friend was planning to go to a midnight showing of The Hunger Games. The next morning, she was up and off to work. Later in the day she posted that she would be sleeping in on Saturday and would do in anyone who interrupted that sleep. She indicated she would do this “cornucopia style”.
Thinking of this person, a great mom and a friend I’ve had a lot of laughs with, losing her temper and raining cornucopia blows upon some unfortunate who woke her with a text message was a great source of amusement for me as I went through the day.

Because of my high level of accuracy, if you intend to see War Horse I must warn you not to continue reading this post.
Are They Still Here?
OK, good. Let’s move on. Based completely on what I’ve seen on television commercials and remember from high school history class, here is the story of War Horse:
Archduke Ferdinand was riding around in his car when some guy assassinated him. Read the rest of this entry »
What if some really bad stuff went down? Are you prepared? Maybe you’d say you have insurance. Your friends and family would look after the kids. Someone would take care of your stuff. Things would be fine until you got back to normal.
That isn’t the kind of bad stuff I’m talking about. I’m talking about extremely bad stuff, like if you were a witness to a mob hit. When that happens, you don’t get to go back and have everything be fine. No, you go into the Witness Protection Program and get a new identity and place to live.
Maybe you’re not ready, but I’ve got it all figured out.
People who know me are surprised to know I have a Witness Protection Program plan ready in case I need it. They point out that I am wholesome, live within the law, and thus am unlikely to need that sort of protection. Do you know who else did not need that sort of protection? That kid in the old Harrison Ford movie, Witness. Read the rest of this entry »
