Movie Review: Malevolent (2018)

Synopsis: Siblings Jackson and Angela run a profitable scam involving Angela pretending to be a medium with the ability to talk to ghosts and convince them to leave people's homes. When Jackson insists they pull the same scam at a former foster home with a history of a brutal mass murder, he thinks of it as just another job. However, this time, something is different. Angela really can see and hear the ghosts of the little girls who were tortured and killed.

The Fundraiser Seems to Have Been Successful

I'm still waiting on final numbers but did hear the live and silent auctions at Saturday's fundraising banquet raised more than $10,000 for our local ice rink.

That doesn't include ticket sales, games, the raffle table or money we made whenever someone ordered a featured drink from the bar. Plus we had something like $1500 in cash donations prior to the event (though some of that was spent on things we needed). So, considering this was the first (and only) time I ran this event, I think it did relatively well.

Now to start working on my next project for the rink...

Bird Feeder Photos 11/10/2018

After months of preparation, the annual fundraising banquet for our ice rink was finally held. I would describe it as a relatively decent success with us bringing in thousands of dollars.

It was, however, also somewhat stressful as far as organizing it goes. So, prior to getting ready for the event, I settled my nerves by getting some photos of birds on the bird feeder. Here are some of them.
