This movie won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Writing (adapted screenplay). Find out whether I agreed with the Academy: No Country for Old Men. As a side note, the 80th Academy Awards aired last Sundy. It received the all-time lowest rating for an Academy Award show. Quite frankly, it was boring. I say, get rid Jon Stewart. He was not funny.

A book I never finished… Three Cups of Tea, one man’s mission to support peace”¦ one school at a time By Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin I borrowed this book with determination to read and like it.

The judge has spared Rolo’s life. He is ordering the dog into obedience classes and the owner’s 90 day jail sentence has been suspended. Thankfully, this debacle has come to an end and Common Sense prevailed.
Rolo’s Owner Found Guilty, Dog May Be Destroyed Raj Chohan, Reporter ARVADA, Colo. (CBS4) “• A jury in Arvada convicted Laura Hagan Tuesday afternoon of having a dangerous dog.

The Coen brothers’ No Country for Old Men, won big tonight, taking home the Oscar for Best Picture, Director, Actor in a Supporting Role and Writing (adapted screenplay). Thankfully, I did manage to see the movie this afternoon before the big show. I was rooting for Michael Clayton, but thought No Country for Old Men was quite good and I will work to get my review up within
I went to the drive-thru for coffee this morning. When I pulled up to the window the cheery barista worker informed me that the woman who had just gone through before had paid for my Irish Cream Americano.

I was asked today if I planned on venturing into Politics on Heidi Town. As some of you know, my educational background is in politics and philosophy.
