Fitness Week Seven – Not Quite to Heaven

Here I am.  Back again to do another fitness roundup for the last week.  No, this is not Woody's Roundup from Toy Story, although that does give me a good idea.  I couldn't be Woody because, although I may be wooden, I am pretty sure I do not have a snake in my boot.   … Continue reading Fitness Week Seven – Not Quite to Heaven

Consolidation - This seems to be my buzzword for the week. And if I am going to look on the bright side this week, I have to focus on this element of it. So what is consolidation?

Review of Kong: Skull Island

When it comes to reviewing movies, I have spent a good time talking about what some of my favorites are. (Or sometimes making fun of myself while talking about them. The men of MST3K are my heroes.)
