I’ve always known this, that’s why I have never watched it. I’d start thinking about the subject matter, remember photo stills of the scenes I’ve glimpsed over the years, and just KNEW it would be nightmare city for me. You can call me delicate, call me a wuss, I don’t really care. This show? This show is not for me.
But I need to be clear: I do not want, for one moment, for my thoughts on war or my inability to sit through a show this intense, to be mistaken for criticism or ingratitude for the sacrifices made by so many. I am a descendant of men and women who served, and I benefit every day of my life because of those who went before me. I would never disparage their time spent defending our country, and their great sacrifices in doing so. Continue reading “I finally watched Damian Lewis in Band of Brothers”
Hello, friends! Hope your summer is going really well. We’ve rounded the corner to August now, which in Minnesota means STATE FAIR TIME! All the fried food on a stick, people watching, and petting goats that you can handle!
I am basically inside the house hiding from the evil “day star” (I am fair with freckles, tanning ain’t for me!) so I’ve been re-watching some favorite shows to pass the time. Season 2 of Billions, of course, has been an easy choice! Let’s stroll back, together, and tell a tale of two Bobbies!
Hello, all! It’s officially springtime here in Minnesota. The trees are blooming and the citizens are sneezing!
I’ve been far more entertained by the critters returning to my bird feeder after the long, cold winter, than I ever care to admit. I’m pretty sure the only thing that entertains me more, these days, has been Billions. And my-oh-my, season two has been mind-blowing!
Hello, all! Hope 2017 is treating you all well. I’ve managed to make it about half way through the brutal winter here in the arctic tundra known as Minnesota. It won’t be that long until warm weather will return!
Aside from counting the days until Spring, I know that we are all waiting, with baited breath, for the season two premiere of Billions! February 19th can’t get here fast enough. I’ve been keeping myself busy with re-watches of my favorite holiday gift, Billions on DVD! (Shout-out to Mr. Dazzle for knowing exactly what I wanted. I don’t think he even had to read my shopping guide…)
In my first couple articles written for the blog, I delved into what the three zones of the body correspond to. For a quick and dirty recap: Mind, Heart, Body (I usually prefer vitality). Mind, your head. Heart, your chest. Vitality? Your pelvis. And within each of these zones, lies mind, heart and body breakdowns of their own. From head to toe, within all of our appendages, as well, macrocosm to microcosm, these three elements are all present. It’s a fascinating study that I hope to learn to teach, myself, one day!

Happy belated Christmas, everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season. Minnesota has been quite chilly and snowy this winter, we are totally living up to our bitter, tundra-like reputation!
Since it’s been far too dangerous to venture outside, I’ve been hunkered down inside, hiding under a blanket, getting some awesome posts written! I’m pleased to bring you a moment from the tall one’s year-specifically from Saturday, April 16th, when he headed to Washington, D.C. to attend the 2016 White House Correspondents Dinner.
Holiday greetings to you all! So glad to be back behind the keyboard with my Fan Fun Sisterhood. I wanted to take a moment from my busiest season to create something special for our blog.
One of my taglines, as a burlesque performer, is that I am “The Queen of Christmas.” I’m launching into my busiest performing season, as well as the season of my birth, so what better article for me to write than a shopping guide for the Damian Lewis fans in your life? I know any of us “diehards” here at the blog would LOVE the things listed here. (I’m also certain many of us own several of these things, so check the comments for some special Fan Fun product reviews from my sisters!)
