Hot Water Returns!

I won't go into the whole story about our hot water heater again. It would be a repeat from a post back in January. Just suffice it to say Corby got it fixed, and we are living in the land of hot water again!

In between helping him, I got some scrapbooking done today. The first 3 spreads are in a ringed scrapbook - the pages are 8x8.This last page (8.5x11) was made using my new Cricut Expressions. I am still learning all the nuances, but it has some cool techniques you can use, for example - the word "favorite" at the bottom of the page. Just too cool, and too much fun!And in case you can't read his top 10 music choices they are:
1. Nickelback
2. Hinder
3. Saliva
4. Shinedown
5. Trapt
6. Avenged Sevenfold
7. Jeremy Camp
8. Slipknot
9. Five Finger Death Punch
10. Seether

How many of these have you heard of? I like all of them - except I haven't heard Avenged Sevenfold or Five Finger Death Punch (what a name). But I do like that he has one Christian artist in there - Jeremy Camp. He's one of my favorites!

There's actually a band called Saliva? I need to get out more!

yeah, and they are actually pretty good. I like almost all of the alternative / heavy rock that he likes, but there are a few bands that are TOO metal for me.

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

5 STARS

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
The Nanny Arrangement

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.
