The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, entertaining movie for an adult birthday sleepover!

I was recently asked to view and review the new Ben Stiller movie, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. Although I am retired, I find that I have more than enough to occupy my time and, frankly, watching movies doesn’t consume much of it. I have never been much of a movie watcher and rarely even go to the show. I have plenty of other things to keep me busy, including numerous hobbies, pinochle … [Read more...]

Now onto figuring out this game

Since receiving a gift of an antique Maj Jongg game from a friend (See prior blog post "A Most Unexpected Gem" ) I’ve decided that it might be a good idea to actually learn how to play Maj Jongg.

I decided to go to our … [Read more...]

While on a shopping trip to Hallmark for a Christmas ornament, I stumbled upon what turned out to be the perfect gift for my niece, a dice game called “Tenzi”. It stated on the package that it’s the world’s fastest game. Since I am always on the lookout for a different type of game, I thought that I’d give this one a chance. I wasn’t disappointed.
