Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

Remember when Black Friday was on Friday?
Imagine what will happen if the stores are allowed to stay open all night Christmas Eve until lunch time on Christmas Day! This year, more than 50,000 restaurants, bars, convenience stores and...
My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
Well I saw Wall E this weekend. I know the critics would disagree with me but it definitely wasn't one of my favorite pixar movies. It just wasn't funny enough for me and no memorable lines. Not to mention we had a electrical storm during the movie and picture and sound went out a few times. That was annoying. I will probably purchase the dvd when it comes out. Maybe I will enjoy it more at home.
I didn't see the movie and from what I've heard over the weekend I'm not sure I will. I don't need a movie to preach to me about how much I'm destroying the planet. I don't consider that entertainment and I don't appreciate a kid/family production being used to promote a political agenda.
It wasn't bad. My son enjoyed it. It had a nice love story...for robots. I think it is better than Cars or that rat one (don't ask me to spell it from the hip, I don't know) but surely doesn't top Toy Story, Incredibles, or Finding Nemo by any means. About parr with Monster's Inc in my book, entertaining enough but not fantastic.

LOL, I just saw it and I loved it. It does remind us though, as much as we don't want to admit it, we should all do our part to help the planet! It's not good to be wasteful and I think the fact that no one likes talking about it or spending time cleaning, recycling and trying to be more "green" is the reason why we actually ARE killing the planet. No one really wants to take responsibility for that. Just sweep it under the rug....we'll all be dead by the time the world actually gets trashed..but what about the younger generations? I want my kids, grandkids and great grandkids to be able to enjoy a planet with blue skies, trees and clean oceans and as fictional as the movie was, it was funny because hey, let's face it...we're not as healthy as we used to be! Every generation has gotten fatter and fatter! (Thanks Mickey D's!) I guess I shouldn't have taken environmental biology in college. It's made me kind of hyper-aware about the environment and scared me straight. It's scary once you get the scientific proof in front of you.
Wall*E and EVE are my OTP. I honestly think that, underneath it all, this movie is about the underdog becoming the hero. It's about the classic triumph of good over evil. It's about even the smallest, most insignificant-seeming being becoming the big hero! It's also about love and bravery. I loved it. It was amazing because they got you to connect to a character that could only say like...five words! I just really enjoyed the great animation and storytelling. I loved Wall*E....he's sooooo adorable.
