    Do You Like Open-Ended Movies?

    When I invest my time in watching a movie I like to have it come to a conclusion.

    Too often I’ve been watching movies on Amazon Prime and I have been left hanging.

    I do find it a bit frustrating to get involved with the characters and the story, then left wondering . . . In many situations it may be good, but in most I do like to see how things work out for all concerned.

    Now, not all of these movies on Amazon Prime are opened-ended, it just seems some of those I selected lately have been.

    If you haven’t checked out Amazon Prime, I think this is a wonderful time to do so. Besides movies, there is music and the big game changer for me was FREE second day delivery of my orders. No more shipping fees is a true money saver.

    There is always a 30-day Free Trial you can do to see if it would be worthwhile for you and your family.

    It is only $99. per year!!

    I have a banner in the footer that will take you right where you can sign up and get started. This is a wonderful value.

    There is so very much Amazon Prime has to offer. It is worthwhile for you to check it out.

    I enjoy the movies. This is an excellent way for me to watch movies and series without having to buy the DVDs.

    I did surprise myself when I bought my Kindle. I always liked a book to grab and read, but now, I love my Kindle without the mess of having a bunch of books around wondering where to put them. The same is true for the movies and music. It is always nice to have a collection of favorites to share with family and friends, but this is an excellent way to preview before purchasing.

    Another big surprise I got was that Amazon’s Halloween Shop is now open!!!

    Yes, it is definitely time to get thinking about your costume, getting goodies for your party and having your trick-or-treat candy on hand.

    Here are some links you may find helpful:

    Traditional movie collections and some nice goodie bags to fill with delicious treats. I didn’t even know where to begin for Halloween costumes for the whole family — you do need to take a look and get them now as supplies last. Maybe they will give you some ideas for the theme of your party.

    I do hope this was helpful and you’ll consider signing up for Amazon Prime.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Autumn Is In The Air

    This morning was a bit chilly with the temperature reaching 80° F later today.

    There are only a few days remaining of summer.

    We’re passing into another season and getting closer to some major holidays — Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then the New Year. It all seems to be coming quickly.

    I do wonder if you’ve had the opportunity to get your Halloween costumes or whether you’ve planned your All Hollow’s Eve Party . . . maybe you’re thinking of a theme for your party . . . or having one that is family friendly — maybe there are some DVD’s you’d like to have available for your guests to watch. Something fun and not too scary for children.

    I do love Washington Irving’s Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I enjoyed the Disney cartoon version. 

    It is a wonderful story that I read every year.

    I’m always figuring out a different ending for it. I do so want a happy ending.

    Well, let’s see what Halloween DVD’s are available for us to watch and enjoy:

    I do love Scooby-Doo and these are fun for all ages. But I do wonder what else would be fun and appropriate. Maybe . . .

    These are all family friendly, but you may have something else in mind. Just click one of the links and go off exploring for the DVD’s you and your family and friends would enjoy watching.

    It is never too early to begin shopping for Halloween and planning your Halloween get together.

    Here are a few suggestions:

    That seems like a nice variety. Great for your guests and for the trick-or-treat visitors.

    Please do your shopping online with me 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Echo Show

    Just when you got used to Amazon’s Echo, they improved it!

    That’s true!!

    Now there is Echo Show — that’s right — you can now see the weather report, the breaking news, a message from friends and family and so much more than I can tell you about.

    Echo Show has 8 microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you across the room while music or the tv is playing. It still uses the Alexa App, but it can do so much more.

    Click the image to the right to learn about it for yourself and imagine how awesome this would be.

    Buy 2 and save!!!

    I highly recommend this Echo Show — they would make excellent Christmas gifts!!!

    Get the latest technology and introduce it to your family and friends. It will make it so much easier and much more fun to keep in touch.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Glutton For Punishment

    I not only have been revamping one website, but decided to do another.

    There could be something about the anticipation of fall for me that marks a new beginning.

    We’re pretty much programmed in childhood to a new school year in the fall. Summer may be a time of recharging for the new school year ahead. Or it is all the holiday celebrations — Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve . . . Valentine’s Day . . . that get us thinking and planning ahead.

    This could be the “kick in the pants” of making appropriate changes — changing our behavior, trying new things . . . Yes, I know it is the New Year that marks the resolution making, but for me it seems to be during the summer.

    I’m not afraid of change, I do welcome it. Revamping websites is part of what I do. I sometimes want a fresh look for my visitors. And, unfortunately, I sometimes lose interest in a website or I just want it to be better.

    I could be in a rut where all my websites seem to look the same, but with the Divi Theme, one can make it into anything one would prefer.

    The problem — deciding how to make it better . . . and keep the feeling and purpose upon which it was initially created.

    This was my first real website — an eclectic blend of everything of interest to me (and hopefully to you), but I have gotten into a rut of sorts and it is time for me to get out of it and to have some serious fun . . . Just like when I first created this website.

    So . . . on this Labor Day Weekend . . . What do I want to do?

    Nothing drastic. Just freshen up this website a bit.

    I think it just needed a bit of a boost — and more importantly, I need to write more posts on a regular basis.

    Goodness, July and August have truly been neglected. I can’t do anything about that — it’s the past. I can, however, begin writing more posts here and now and continue on a more regular consistent basis. We’re getting into some fun times!!

    Maybe I’ve been waiting around like Elvia — waiting for fall. We have had some very hot and humid days. We even had a few thunder showers that made being outside more miserable.

    So what if we’re having a heat wave. Enjoy what we do have and be grateful.  I believe I am very fortunate to have this website — and the ability to revamp other websites. I just need to remember where it all started.

    I did make a few changes on my “home page”. I hope you will check it out, if you haven’t already done so. I just wanted to extend my background image of a cluttered attic and to have a place to feature some past posts you may want to revisit. That’s what’s great about having an established website running for several years. There are a whole lot of posts that need your attention. The information is still relevant. Especially the recipe for Cupcake S’Mores.

    Thank you for stopping by!
