Memorial Day

Since I did a blog about Memorial Day last year, I wasn’t sure about doing one this year without repeating myself. In fact, I already had another blog subject ready to go. That will wait. Because I just felt I needed to focus on this coming Monday and what it means.

In November, in celebrate Veterans Day. We acknowledge all that we owe to the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces. But in May, we observe Memorial Day. We strive to remember those who gave their all for their country.

Back to Basics

A couple of weeks ago, a co-worker was telling me about a movie she’d recently seen. It was a romantic comedy, but she found it difficult to get involved in the story. I suggested she try some older films and gave her a couple of titles. I started wondering if maybe that’s a good idea in general for us movie fans. Perhaps there are times we think there’s nothing new that we want to see, even though there are dozens and dozens of excellent films released every year.
