Cary Grant remembered for his humor, grace, class

An "American Masters" profile neatly sums up the subtle actor's self-made, multifaceted life

Cary Grant was a lifelong example of a self-made man.

Every actor learns to wear the clothes, affect the speech and look natural in the world created for him. When the show's over, off come the duds, poof goes the character's world and the actor reverts to what passes for normal.

Not Grant. As a teenager who ran away to join a traveling show, he began creating roles for audiences and building a character for himself.

"I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be until finally I became that person -- or he became me," Grant once said. "I have spent the greater part of my life fluctuating between Archie Leach and Cary Grant, unsure of each, suspecting each."

Various Cary Grants reveal themselves in an "American Masters" profile, "Cary Grant: A Class Apart," narrated by Helen Mirren and Jerem…

Women's Retreat Photos

As some as you noticed, I was a little under the weather. I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to, and wouldn't you know it, I goofed on the group photo too :) But I did get some good shots of you ladies genuinely enjoying yourselves. Let me know if you want any prints or have a preferred service (like Ofoto, Snapfish, etc) that I can upload them to.

The photos can be viewed here

Vodkapundit - How I Spent My Christmas Vacation

"Finally, two beauty shots of the finished product. On the last one, another Coke can is there for scale. Altogether, it's 37 inches long and took about 15 hours to build. And that's for a guy who plows through Lego sets with all the unrushed grace of a teenage boy losing his virginity."

More Star Wars fandom. This was sent to my by my darling husband. The quote I picked myself. My DH would rather be drooling over the Destroyer. Now I know what to get him for Father's Day.

Letter From a Toddler

Not that this has ever happened to me, but it reminded me about the importance of play and that kids sometimes don't make a mess just to be messy and that just about everything can be turned into a teaching moment.
It warmed my heart =)
Dear Caregiver,
You looked a little tired and discouraged when the parents were coming to pick all of us up today. Then, when that one dad said, “Did they learn anything today or did they just play?” I thought you’d just about had it. I’m writing to cheer you up and tell you that I’m learning lots because you help us play.

Tonight at supper my big sister said that she learned “the nines table” in school today. I’m not sure what the “nines table” is but everyone seemed pleased and excited that she’d learned it.

I learned a lot today. Unfortunately, I can’t talk enough to describe what I learned about how the world works. I know that dumping out bins of toys, climbing, knocking over blocks and squashing bananas on my feeding tray doesn’t sound as mysteri…

Kingdom of Heaven

I *really* want to see this (isn't Orli a dreamboat?), but I am history buff too. My son wants to see it too. He's into D&D and knights and etc (has been for the last 3 years) but I think he just wants to see a really good action flick. It's rated R for violence and some adult content. I was thinking that before I let him see it, he has to do short report on the Crusades so that he at least has some factual context to put the movie in.

I hate how uninformed and easily influenced our kids are growing up to be. There should be absolutely no excuse for the ignorance that is rampant these days, and yet, there it is.
