  1. My daughter has tried all of the meds, and for each there are side effects that make taking them unbearable. Unfortunately, CBD oil did nothing for her ADHD. We were hopeful. I hope you have better luck and that he finds something to help.
  2. The Kate Beckinsale version was the one I liked best over the years, but it has been several years since I watched it. The new one was a lot of fun. Overall the acting and casting was great (although I think they could have had more scenes with Mr. Woodhouse )and my dd and I loved the costumes and set designs. It was a fun afternoon at the theater, but I agree that I'd rather buy it for 25 or 30 dollars because the $20 seems high for a rental.
  3. Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix. My daughters and I loved this and the 3rd season ended on a cliffhanger. My youngest (19) and I love Grantchester, so I'm hoping that isn't cancelled.
  4. My husbands' great grandfather was named Mordecia. That side of his family passed on names a lot, but this one seems to have been a one time thing. It really sounds terrible with our last name.
  5. Thanks. Not completed yet. We have the house painted and several pieces of furniture ready - mostly just painting already made pieces for that. I've been working harder on the graveyard for beside the house, and now that my daughter is home from college we hope to get that done soon. Lots of components are ready we just have to get it laid out and the trees, grass, etc. positioned.
  6. I have been painting frames for the recently repainted living room walls - only took us 20 years or so to update them. Working on an electric chair for our Addams family dollhouse. The cat made off with the other arm restraint, so I am working on more wires and the switch..
  7. My dd is flying into Seattle and then traveling onto Victoria and Vancouver over her spring break with a small honors class from her college. She asked me today if I could ask "the board" for any recommendations for restaurants with a good selection of gluten free food or bookstores in the areas that she'll be visiting. The group will have some time to do what they want one or two afternoon sin each location, and she'd love to find something she can eat other than salads . I am assuming that there will be a lot of gluten free options in the cities, but if there is anything really great she'd love to try it. Since no one else in their group of less than 15 is gluten free, she'd love to have an idea of places to watch for so she can have some hot food occasionally. This is her first trip to the west coast as well as her first trip out of the country, so she's super excited but just a little nervous about food. She's not celiac, but gluten intolerant. Independent bookstores/used/antique bookstores will definitely be on the top of her list for things to look for on her free time, and she'd love personal recommendations if you have any. In Seattle, she''ll be staying on 5th Ave (sort of near the Bill Gates Foundation) and I'm sure public transportation will be available to her. In Vancouver, she'll be near English Bay - also assuming easy access to public transportation. I forgot that they will be in Victoria at least one night in the Blanshard area of downtown, so ideas for that area would be appreciated as well. Thanks for any ideas. I will pass them on to her. She definitely understands the power of the Hive. 😉 Cindy
  8. Saw it today with 18 yr old dd and her good friend. Both girls and I enjoyed it. It was a beautiful film. I knew I would cry - I always do-, but I definitely agree that the chronology of this film made the rejection and Beth's fate more central. I cried for a lot of the movie. 😉 I liked a lot of things about this one. I saw the Ryder version in the theatre in the 90s and enjoyed the recent BBC version. It's been many years since I saw the Elizabeth Taylor/Margaret O'Brien version. I thought the actress playing Jo did a good job - different than the exuberant version of Jo in the WR version - but believable and still accurate to the book. Amy was always my favorite and I liked the actress that played her in many ways, but still trying to decide if it would have been preferable to have a younger actress play her in a few scenes.
  9. Love Most Notorious! and can't wait to try True Crime Historian. Love reading through old newspapers, so this sounds like great fun.

  11. This is us now. We have a cat that will eat any type of tulle, ribbon, mesh or lace he can get to. Our tree is only decorated on the top half and the stockings (all handmade by my 18 yr old and each has lace) had to be hung at the last minute and guarded carefully until they were empty and then stored away again. My oldest taped a photo of Baby Yoda on top of the tree because the angel is so tempting we are afraid he would climb up and eat her dress. A trip to the emergency vet for a blockage is not my idea of holiday fun. (The cat is 3 years old and he has had 3 surgeries for blockages so far.)
  12. Yes, he will have to include everyone's income.
