Amen on the WallWarmest greetings, Wall Watchers.

You’ll note we did some redecorating around here. While my last borrowed theme may have slightly been more Feng Shui, this allows yours truly to stop complaining about the furniture in this piece.

Why? I missed my wall (note the header)!

And until I am able to afford a customized stucco Wall like several other Bricks in this hallowed place, I’m subject to whatever WordPress permits us disenfranchised folk to have.

I’m grateful (in case Big Brother is watching)… just eagerly waiting for that check to hit my mailbox so I can give it to some dude who can re-skin this thing with graffiti-approved ACME clay.

So, thanks for understanding (and prayer I get a benefactor). This is it – for a while.


Hollywood can put anything into a chic flicker, a love story.

Consider a “Titanic” tugboat sinking in the middle of a freezing ocean. Do you remember the iceberg or two schmucks getting buck wild in Model A Ford?

What about a woman who is haunted by the “Ghost” of her hubby. Do you automatically think about a woman freaking out calling ghostbusters or a schmaltzy pottery barn scene.

Now, add to that a delightful love story between an acclaimed (but slightly off his rocker) scientist and his sanctimonious wife, and then rocked by the loss of his daughter, this scientist decides to blame God and write a book.

That book would be “Origin of the Species,” and that dude would be Charles Darwin.

Yes, his life is now coming to theaters near you. It’s not “The Passion,” but it may be worth the price of admission… you know, if you fancy a witnessing challenge.
