The Avengers

The Avengers. I watched it after all the hoopla and accolades worn through. Estimates were, that it was the top grossing film of all time for the first week of opening. Or something like that.

Well, I sat down in the theater with my 3D glasses on. Watched the action. A villain named Loki, bent on doing what??? You guessed it, taking over the world. No surprise, as most shows and features are about this. They are looking for some power cube, in order to create a portal to allow a huge alien army in to subdue the planet.

The only thing standing in their way, is the shield group and a few superheroes that hopefully will form a future avenger group. Samuel L Jackson does a good job in playing the guy in control. He is the director of the Shield top secret movement, and as always, plays a good role in these situations (Not too often we do not see him in this role). First star, goes to Iron man himself. His quick witty, often smart humor, puts him as my first star of the show. Robert Downy Jr. has found himself the perfect shoe for the fit, in the shoe store.

Scarlet Johannson is a breath of fresh air, Mark Raffalo does an excellent job as the scientist that may turn green anytime. Chris Evans does a terrific job as being an army minded Captain. Jeremey Renner does a good job as Hawkeye. He does look like a precision shooter.

All in all, this film was just about all it could be. When I think about how I was a big Spider Man fan, and how this series became totally off base with the comic book history, I was afraid of watching this one. But, this show did not have many bravado or corny catches ( it did have a few, however). I hope Spidey goes back to his roots, and does not mix the too far away with the too soon revealed in the comic book realm.

In conclusion, good job. This film deserves what it got from the box office. 4 out of 5 stars, for my rating.. Have a good night, till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
