Movie Notes

Anacortes had a few sporadic days of “June Gloom,” so NavyGuy and I have stayed fairly current on summer movies… (though, with two beautiful days this past weekend, we fell a bit behind on the newest releases): Man of Steel Much better than expected.  I have never seen any of the other Superman films, so […]

A Small Argo World

I spent tonight at the Anacortes library, at a presentation by two of the real-life people who were portrayed in the Best Picture winner Argo! The speakers were Mark and Cora Lijek, who worked at the American Embassy in Tehran when it was overtaken by Iranian students in 1979.  The Lijeks, along with four others, […]

This nontraditional potato salad is a recipe that’s been passed around our old squadron… I found the exact measurements from BHG online, but everything can be tweaked to fit your spice preferences or available ingredients. Our Safeway store had no corn on the cob (NONE!?!?) this week, so we had to survive with frozen, and […]

Oh Hello, Bambi

While NavyGuy and I were outside doing yard work this afternoon, the “neighbors” decided to come over to help…   I was shocked that the one deer came so close with both of us in the yard, until one of the cars that had stopped on Oakes Avenue inched forward and pointed out to us […]

This Week

> We’ve been on a West Wing kick, rewatching the amazing episodes from the start of Season 1.  It’s making me wish that I didn’t have to wait another six weeks for the new episodes of Aaron Sorkin’s current show Newsroom.  It’s not equal to WW, but it’s an excellent substitution. > The sunshine has […]
