Some Canadian Geese Photos

Image
I was able to get out for a walk at lunch today. While there were quite a few things I could have gotten photos of, most of them weren't overly cooperative, especially the muskrat and garter snake. However, I was able to get some photos of the Canadian geese on their way back from heading south for the winter.

Review: My wife decided to run some errands yesterday evening, while waiting for our daughter to get done with work. While she was gone, I ended up watching the last few minutes of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and, since this movie came on right after that one, wound up watching it as well.  My wife insists we've seen this movie before, and I have no reason to doubt her. However, I could

Review: I let my wife pick out Friday night's movie and, after scrolling through a few options on Amazon Prime, she picked this one out. Overall, it ended up being a better choice than expected. There honestly isn't anything overly special about the plot of the movie, it's very similar to other films we've seen before. A lot of the movie also tends to be somewhat predictable, including the main twist, which I figured out only a few minutes into the film. I ev

As it turns out, this movie was nothing like I was expecting it to be, and I mean that in both a good and bad way. First of all, everything about this movie, the main stars, the preview and the IMDB description screams "comedy." After seeing the film, I honestly couldn't see any way of classifying

As a result, when I came across this movie on one of our premium channels, I decided to watch it with her. I've only seen this movie once or twice before. The first time, it scared me. The second time, i

Review: I came across this movie on Netflix a couple days ago and, while I had some doubts about it, decided to save it for a rainy day. Well, it didn't rain yesterday but my wife and I were in the mood for a movie before bed and I gave it a try. Overall, I have to say it exceeded my expectations. I think the thing that surprised me most about this movie is it wasn't as predictable as I thought it would be. Ultimately, I wound up gue
