We could add vintage films to the breakout sessions!

Old and obscure, but definitely entertaining!

Video formats do seem to multiply and change constantly, but the interesting thing is that properly preserved film of almost any age can still be viewed, as opposed to the plethora of obsolete-tomorrow video formats a few years down the road. That's one reason we love film as well as movies! But video certainly has its place---few collectors would be able to obtain or afford a 16mm print of many classic films. For those, the next best thing is a DVD and an Epson MovieMate. (And a bowl of popcorn and Cokes in glass bottles!)

May we add M&Ms to the snack along with popcorn and soda? I love popcorn and M&Ms when I watch movies!

My Girl Scout cookies were just delivered: Tagalongs, Savannah Smiles, Thank You Berry Munch, Samaos, and Thin Mints. Yummo! They are a little expensive, but the $$$ is going to a good cause.

I will bring a new snack, too. Hubby and I bought Greek Yogurt Fruit and Nut Blend at Costco the other day. Ingredients: Greek yogurt chips, pomegranate arils, apricots, cherries, roasted almonds, marcona almonds, and cranberries. Delicious and addicting!

I laughed when I saw the remote control that came with it! I also started watching Becoming Santa. I will finish watching it later today. Thanks for the recommendations!
♥ I can feel the lovely breeze reading this...
I would love to see that movie (
Becoming Santa)
Enjoy your day beautiful Lady! =)

You really should. It is a great magazine. In one edition, I found a picture of a coat that was a hand-me-down to me from one of my cousins--brown with fur pom-pom buttons. I couldn't believe it!
