Review of the new movie, The Covenant, 900 pound pumpkins, The Great Wall, Recipes, and how we lost 11 days in our history.
I would be pissed having been born on October 10th lol
In 1989, I walked the Great Wall of China. It was one of the most awesome experiences of my life. Thanks for bringing back for the memory.
Hi Heather, Thanks for asking. I was there in March just before the Tiananmen Square massacre. The walk was very strenuous and yet I had many insights along the way. My son-in-law was born and raised in Wuhan China. So he, my daughter, and I went to visit his parents. We were honored guests and novelties - two red-haired white women - at the same time. The whole trip was incredible - the food not so much.
Another issue brimming with interesting stuff. You must research all week long. The movie sounds harrowing, but has the potential for an exciting, positive ending. I might try it. Oh, and by the way , can you by any chance deliver a couple of buckets of those chicken wings?
Awesome as usual. I need to watch The Covenant.
I laughed at your wing pun.
I can’t believe a pumpkin weighed in at over 900 pounds. Was it on an all-carb diet? (Not as funny as winging it)
Some people wouldn’t mind losing a birthday if it in fact made them 1 year younger.
Heather thanks for the read. Loved it!
The Covenant is definitely a 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟movie! Also, Prey is surprisingly good. It’s part of the Predator series, which I can’t abide, but it’s definitely a couple stars better than the other Predator movies.
And speaking of the Great Wall, my all time favorite Audible book is Shadow of the Silk Road, by Collin Thubron, who traveled from China to Turkey. His writing is extraordinary, as is his detailed knowledge of history along the way, including China. The narrator is excellent as well. While in western Iran, he gets an abscessed tooth that takes him on a dental adventure worth the price of the book on its own.
