The Big Bang Theory-Penny's Costume Party

“The Middle Earth Paradigm” from Season 1 of The Big Bang Theory aired Monday 9/26. In the episode, the gang attends a costume party in Penny’s apartment. 
Penny dresses as a cat, Sheldon dresses as the doppler effect, Leonard is Frodo from Lord of the Rings, Howard is Robin Hood but gets mistaken for Peter Pan and Raj is Thor, the Norse god of thunder. Each costume is interesting for each character {Raj, the quietest of the group, is the god of thunder}.
I have to admit that I think that Howard as Robin Hood was the best costume. As he just looked so cute~and everyone mistaking him for Peter Pan was cracking me up.Because if you really look at him that is who he looks like.Not that the rest of them weren't funny. As they all looked great.Penny looked really cute in her Cat costume~she out shined all the rest there.

This is one of my favorite shows and I really enjoy watching all of the episodes on TV. The Big Bang Theory is now on 5 Nights a week~so you can watch your favorites too! Just go to www.bigbangweeknights.com to check your local listings.

Sons of Anarchy Season 3 DVD Review

FX’s highest-rated series ever SONS OF ANARCHY SEASON 3
Just Rode Into Town!
Starring Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and 2011 Golden Globe® Award-winner Katey Sagal, “Sons of Anarchy” Season Three is FX’s adrenalized drama about a notorious outlaw motorcycle club intent on protecting their sheltered small town against encroaching drug dealers, corporate developers and overzealous law officers.  The club is equally determined to protect their ruthless and illegally thriving arms business.

Hunnam stars as Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller, a man whose love for the brotherhood is tested by his growing apprehension for its lawlessness.  Katey Sagal stars as Gemma Teller Morrow, Jax’s force-of-nature mother, who along with Ron Perlman as Clarence ‘Clay’ Morrow, Jax’s stepfather and MC president, have their own darker vision for the club.

Chaos and confusion reign after Jax’s infant son is kidnapped and Gemma is framed for murder.  When Abel’s trail leads SAMCRO to Belfast, Ireland, secrets are revealed and the bonds of brotherhood are shattered. Jax is left reeling with more questions than answers as he struggles with the legacy of his father, the future of the club, and the fate of his family. 

I have been watching this show since day one. As Katy Sagal is one of my favorites and she doesn't disappoint in this one either. Of course all the actors are good~as there is a lots of great acting in this show. I like that it takes you right with on everything. It is a show that you start watching and don't want to stop.As there is action,drama and good humor. The DVD set is complete with all 13 episodes and includes special features such as all-new scenes shot exclusively for the Blu-ray and DVD that bridge season 3 to season 4, extended creator’s cut episodes,deleted and extended scenes, commentaries, a table read with the cast, and a custom bike build.

Drawing an average of 7.6 million total viewers per week on a multi-run cume, "Sons of Anarchy" retained 97% of its Season 2 average, and is the highest-rated series ever on FX.

10 Tips for De-Cluttering and Organizing Toys!



Now that the holidays are around the corner~that means that he kids will be wanting new toys! But~with the new toys comes clutter. As if your kids are anything like my grandchildren they want to hold on to that doll or truck that they haven't played with in over 3 months! So~I am here to help with my top 10 tips to De~Clutter those toys!

1~Take all the toys that are in good condition and they have outgrown or just have not played with for a long time and donate them.As there are so many places that will be glad to take them for other kids to play with!

2~Get bins that the kids can see thru~so they know what is in each one.And mark them on the outside so that when they are done playing with them,they can put them back in the bin for next time!

3~Make it fun for the kids to clean! As~when my grandchildren are here~I tell them that as soon as the toys are picked up there is a surprise in it for them. I usually give them a fruit snack or some little thing that I picked up at the Dollar store. Works every time and there is no arguing and we are all happy!

4~Stuffed Animals? You can buy those little nets as the dollar store and hang them in the corner to keep them out of the way~but still let your kids enjoy them!

5~My grandchildren love all the Polly Pockets but the pieces get lost and then we end up with only one shoe or boot! I cleaned out a Miracle Whip jar and put all the little clothes and shoes~put the cover on and labeled it on the outside.

6~Dress Up Clothes? Put little hooks on the wall so they can hang those little dresses up for next time.I put them at eye level so they can reah them.

7~Small carts with wheels can also be used for the bigger toys.Like trucks and balls.You can store these in the closet too for more room.

8~Take all the toys that are broken or have lost pieces and toss them.You have to explain to the kids that they are not any use to them so they have to go!

9~Take all the board games and puzzles and put them together. Store them on a shelf in the closet so when the time comes to play with them~they are all there complete!

10~Use small shelves that you can hang on the wall to store all the books.As it doesn't take up much space and they can see them all.

So~that is my top 10 tips for De-Cluttering and Organizing Toys! Do you have ones that I didn't think of? As~I would love to hear yours too!

Henry's Crime Review!

THE REAL CRIME IS NOT COMMITTING
TO YOUR DREAMS

He’s done the time, now he might as well do the crime. 
Acclaimed indie filmmaker Malcolm Venville (44 Inch Chest) directs an all-star cast in the outrageous crime caper HENRY’S CRIME, just released  to Blu-ray and DVD on recently from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
With a terrific cast led by Keanu Reeves (The Matrix Trilogy), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) and a splendid James Caan (Misery), HENRY’S CRIME is a fun comedy with irresistible heist and heart” (Boxoffice Magazine). Reeves stars as Henry Torne, a wrongly accused man who winds up behind bars for a bank robbery he didn’t commit. After befriending a charismatic lifer (Caan) in prison, Henry finds his purpose – having done the time, he decides he may as well do the crime. But his outlandish plan to rob the very same bank spins wildly out of control, as he finds himself performing in a stage play and falling in love with the production’s seductive leading lady (Farmiga).




This is a great movie~that kept my interest. As who doesn't love Keanu Reeves and James Caan? They were great in this movie~made me laugh and laugh..Keanu Reeves stars as Henry, a simple man who lives a quite life with his wife. After a friend has him driving the get-away car in a bank robbery, Henry is sent to prison. There he meets Max (James Caan) who convinces Henry that if he is "doing the time, he should do the crime".
One year later Henry is a free man with an audacious plan. Since he's already on record as a convicted bank robber, Henry figures he may as well try his hand at the criminal lifestyle. After stumbling across an old underground bootlegger tunnel that connects the bank to an adjacent theater, Henry convinces Max to apply for parole in order to help him execute the perfect robbery. Posing as an actor, Henry lands the lead role in the theater's production of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, and begins working with Max to burrow their way into the nearby bank vault. But now the more time Henry spends in the theater, the harder he finds himself falling for his capricious co-star Julie (Farmiga), a development that could very well land them all in jail before the final curtain.

Gellite Candles Review and Giveaway 10/10

Gellite Candles started in 2001 as a simple thought.Laura had visited the Mall of America and purchased a small gel candle that had a simple seascape design. It was an attractive candle but it didn’t burn very well.
Later that year she bought a gel candle kit for her 5 year old daughter. They worked on it together and after they had finished, she turned to her and said, “We should start a business making gel candles.”
She struck a match and, as they say, the rest is history...

I was recently sent a Gellite Candle in the Tropical Sun Scent. As you can see by the picture it looks like it made out of water! How cool is that? I tired to take different pictures of the Candle as I have burned it many times and it still looks great. I love the scent~it reminds me of a warm nite at the beach. And the feel of the candle is neat~it feels like jello. I like the fact that as I burn it~the gel goes away and you can use the container again. Because the gel is food safe mineral oil, once the candle has been burned completely, you can remove any remaining gel, the sand and shells and the wick and use the jar for storage of items in your kitchen, or if they are drink glasses, feel free to use them for your favorite beverage.This is a gift that just keeps giving!
You can see all this and more at Gellite Candles as there are many different scents~shapes~colors and even holidays to choose from! All Made in the USA!
