I love historical movies. Maybe I love history. If you asked me to list my top ten "loves", I doubt I'd say history, but my love of a simpler time is there just beneath the surface. I don't go see X-men or super heros or Star Trek movies, but I do venture to the theater for a trip back in time (even if I don't go any further back than the 1950s). 

Sometimes I'm disappointed by my movie outings. My high expectations ruin the experience. Not this time. I loved Brooklyn. It made me laugh and cry. My only complaint would be that perhaps it was too goody goody. Everyone was likeable. There was no bad guy. No one was forced into prostitution (The Imigrant) or swindled or coerced into marrying someone they didn't love. Maybe that's what I also found so refreshing. This was not your cookie cutter movie. Just a girl making the best of a bad situation, turning her lemons into lemonaid with hard work and tough decisions.

And I'm going to put a good movie in the "spirit" column in my efforts to work on my Mind, Body & Spirit. There is something so tranquil about sitting in a dark theater with a handful of strangers.

Wait For It...

And now for my next trick....I'm going to attempt to format and upload Lily in Wonderland to Amazon. I'm working out the kinks, which means reading my baby again. My pleasure, really. And this is the cover, by Lourdes Blazek, that I've chosen to represent Lily.

Lily in Wonderland
Kelly Fitzpatrick

Lily Tucker is down on her luck and considering a career strutting her stuff around a pole when she gets a call about an unexpected inheritance. It’s every girl’s dream—her estranged grandmother’s kicked the bucket, leaving Lily a house on a private island in Wonderland. 

When she reaches Wonderland, though, she finds a house that’s more like a hovel, a job waiting tables at the local diner, and a crime wave that seems to begin and end with Lily herself. Sexy deputy Toby can’t decide if he should arrest her or drag her off to bed—until it becomes clear that Lily’s not the criminal. She’s the target.

It's quirky and silly and tons of holiday fun.
And free for a few days.
My gift to you.

Kelly Fitzpatrick 

Holly has just finished up a grueling day as Mrs. Santa at the mall. She’s in no mood to spend the Christmas Eve holiday with her kooky sister, her sister’s new boyfriend and his zany family—or her sister’s boyfriend’s single brother. Being kidnapped to do just that wouldn’t be her second choice. 

Ryan has cut ties with his criminally inclined family after they robbed the bank he worked at, causing him to lose his job. He especially doesn’t care to be fixed up against his will with his brother’s ditzy new girlfriend’s sister. Until he comes face to face with her.

On Sale!

This doesn't happen often. Pleasant Lake P.D. is on sale at Amazon through December for 99 cents.


Alexandria Moreno, parking enforcement officer for the serene town of Pleasant Lake, has signed on with the FBI to nail a gorgeous suspected criminal, Miguel Diaz, who’s passing himself off as a legitimate businessman. Alex’s assignment is to use her feminine wiles, of which she has few, to infiltrate Diaz’s world and find some evidence for a conviction.

To complicate matters, she’s teamed up with Detective Roman Plow, who is her ex-boyfriend, though the FBI doesn’t know it. As they focus on retaliating for past wrongs, real and imagined, their smoldering love/hate relationship brews. They’re not exactly an ideal team.

With her bumbling nature, a steamer trunk full of emotional baggage, and no investigating skills, Alex spends most of her time reminding herself that the tall, dark, and handsome Miguel Diaz is not her real boyfriend and struggling to keep from falling into his bed. As she tries to dig up dirt on her undercover lover, the steamy investigation leads to a fight for her life. But who is behind the attacks?

I'm Baaaaaaaack!

My short (and I do mean short) Christmas story has been rereleased. By me. With a little help from Amazon. And my friends. Once upon a time it was free all day, every day. Now, it seems to be free if you have Amazon Prime. For everyone else it's 99 cents. I chose this pretty, pretty cover by Melody Simmons.

Food Matters

What am I watching today?
Food Matters. (Netflix)
Do you like scary movies?
Do you enjoy a good old fashioned mystery rooted in a dark conspiracy theory?
No? What?
Okay, do you like the Terminator movie franchise?
Then get off my blog you heathen. 
Back to our regularly scheduled blog.
"Come with me if you want to live." (Terminator)
I wish I'd watched this documentary 30 years ago, which would have been impossible because it wasn't made yet.
Okay, so I wish I'd seen it in 2008 when it was made.
What did I learn (or reinforce what I already knew)?
Vitamins = good
Processed foods = bad
Water = good
Chemicals = bad
Organic = good (and expensive)
Bad health is big business.
You are what you eat.
Watch it.

Be Careful What You Put In Your Mouth

Let me tell you what I've learned about eating right.
A) It's not easy.
B) I'm not very good at it.
C) I've still got a lot to learn.
Here's how I do it (but sometimes I don't do it - no one's perfect).
1) Eat fresh fruit and veggies (duh). Sometimes I do this in my juicer and drink them.
2) Read labels. Less is more, if you get my drift. If something has a loooooong list of ingrediants and some of those ingrediants you can't pronounce, don't eat it. I'm not advocating eating chips, but if you've got to have a chip, some chips have less chemicals and such that other the label.
3) I add good for me stuff to other stuff. Homemade granola to my yogurt, fruit and nuts to my salads, etc...
4) If it's cheap, it's probably not good for you. But just because it's expensive doesn't guarentee that it is good for you.
5) Chances are just because something says fat free, sugar free, low fat, diet, etc....doesn't make it good for you. It might make it even worse.

6) I try to eat something good for me before eating something potentially naughty (like carrots before cake, so maybe I will eat less cake - there are just some days that will be cake days, like at work for a retirement party or your grandmother's 100th birthday party).
7) Be prepared. I cut up celery or carrot sticks and put them in the fridge so I can just grab and go. I have a snack drawer at work with raw almonds or pretzels or popcorn. That way you'll be less likely to accept a candy bar from a friend or buy a donut on the way to work.

Lazy Girl's Guide to Fitness

It's the screen of my favorite stationary bicycle.
Yes, it's true. I joined a gym.
Because my exercise of choice is walking, and the weather report tells me to hunker down and watch TV under a blanket. Besides, all the cool kids are doing it. And my doctor (who might be a quack) told me to walk farther and faster (yeah, that stung). Most of all I've made this public declaration to work on my Mind, Body & Spirit.
So I joined the YMCA. I was a member about 20+ years ago. I think I was lazy back then too, because I always thought I should be thinner than I was.
My routine - although I'm no fan of routines - is walking, riding a staionary bike, more walking, stationary rowing, walk some more, and a few nights a week I swim. All in all I exercise for an hour to an hour and a half about 5 days a week. I'm slowly increasing my speed, resistence, and distance (I've been known to overdo and get injured or sick, and then quit).
How long has this been going on?
About a month.
Have I lost any weight?
Not really.
Am I healthier for it?
Jeez, I hope so.
I will keep you posted.

Friday, October 16, 2015


In my attempt to eat healthier, avoid preservatives and chemicals, I've been making my own granola.
I loosely follow a recipe I found on the internet, but I seem to have an aversion to measuring. Or following simple instructions.
In a bowl I mix rolled oats, raw almond slivers, chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans or similar), raisins, cranberries, dates, dried apricots, honey, coconut, and coconut oil.
I toast it all in the oven on a cookie sheet at a low temperature (stirring occasionally) until golden brown.
I mix the granola into my Greek yogurt and eat it for breakfast.
I store it in the refrigerator.
But basically you can add, omit or substitute other ingrediants (golden raisins, banana chips, various dried fruits).

Say Hello To My Little Friend

Well, I did it. I bought a juicer. And I'm loving it.
If you are at all interested, it's a Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro, or something like that. I bought it at my local Fred Meyer...on sale...with a coupon.
Just saying.
What have I been tossing in my juicer, you might ask.
Let me tell you.
I bought apples (apparently they really do keep the doctor away), pears, lemons, and strawberries as my base or rather as the stuff that tastes good. I use a combo of 2-3 of the yummy, and then toss in 2-3 of the following: kale, spinach, cilantro (parsley is good for you too), carrots, tomatos, celery, cucumber. 

I usually do my own thing and experiment, but I found this juicing website that has recipes (if you're in to that sort of thing) to address your specific juicing needs whether it be weight loss, cancer prevention or allergies. It talks about the why and how of juicing. 
Happy juicing!

In Your Face!

What I'm going to do with this banana peel might shock you. 
First of all, I didn't waste the banana inside the peel.
I ate half the banana and put the other half in my morning smoothie (but then accidentally left the smoothie at home and had to dump it later after it sat on the kitchen counter all day).
Okay, so I did waste half the banana.
In my defense, Facebook made me do this.
I rubbed the inside of the peel on my (clean) face. I waited 10 minutes (some sources say to leave it on 30 minutes or all night), and then washed it off.
Supposedly, it's a wrinkle reduced, skin brightener, acne fighter, moisturizer.
A banana peel is like a super hero.
Did it work?
The girls at work said yes, but perhaps they were humoring me.

Star Kissed

Star Kissed on Nook.

Hungry For Change

Change is scary. I know. But I'm going to give it a shot, working on my mind, body & spirit. You can come along for the ride. Here's where I'm starting. With my body. I urge you to check out the movie Hungry For Change. You can catch it on Netflix. I've watched it twice. I'll certainly watch it again and again and again until it sinks in.
My mind and spirit will be the real challenges, me being a neurotic agnostic and all. I'm going to have to fill up my spirit with music, laughter, friendship and nature. I'm not sure what we can do about my mind. I'll need to be creative there too.

Far From the Madding Crowd

The movie, Far From the Maddening Crowd, based on the Thomas Hardy novel of the same name (which I have never read, by the way), was visually stunning. I love the history and the landscapes and the costumes. Nothing makes me happier than stepping back in time. Notice I didn't say simpler time. Even a hundred + years ago things were tough, and relationships complicated.

Carey Mulligan was darling as Bathsheba Everdene, headstrong lady of the manor who doesn't just get caught up in a love triangle, no, try a love square. *spoiler* In the end she makes the right choice, the only logical choice, in my opinion.

DWTS America's Choice!!!

It's the night we've (or maybe it's just me) been waiting for. Dancing With The Stars!!! Let's get to it.

Noah & Sharna - (tango) White. White. And more white. (salsa) I've said it before, I'll say it again - inspirational. Made Bruno fall out of his seat.

Chris & Witney - (contemporary) Most improved. He's in it to win it. (paso) "Room for improvement" Julianne. He just needs more experience with two women.

Riker & Allison - (waltz) Talk about emotional and amazing and powerful. Winner winner chicken dinner. (?) What? Party at Riker's. I'm there. "Hammered that #." per Carrie Anne.

Robert & Kym - (contemporary) The Kiss. (samba) Sharp dressed man.

Nastia & Sasha & Derek - (paso) Gladiator style. Killer it! Killed Sasha. (jive) Cute routine. Very clever. Brilliant. Aaaaaand perfect.

Rumor & Val - (rumba) Oh, that was the best danc eof the night. Best dance of the season - per me. 1st perfect score of the season! (paso) That girl knows what to do with two guys.

Tuesday - double elimination.

Monday, April 27, 2015


Era's week? Fun fun fun concept.

Riker & Allison - (1920s quick step) (37/40) The band did a great job of making Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle sound like a ditty from the 1920s. Fast. Fun. Homerun!

Chris & Witney - (1940s fox trot) (31/40) I have a weakness for sailors in crackerjacks. Five Minutes More by ol' Blue Eyes. Most improved.

Rumor & Val - (1960s jive) (36/40?) Crisp, cute, clean jive. Seemed more 1950s than 1960s, in my opinion. Injury drama.

Noah & Sharna - (1970s jazz) (36/40) He's got some amazing hip action. Badass. Pimp Daddy. Player.

Robert & Kym - (1980s Tango) (31/40) He looked smashing. "Get a room dance of the night." Tom B.

Nastia & Sasha - (modern charleston) (38/40) I loved the song, the dance, the concept. "Killed it!" Julianne. Injury drama. They came and conquered.

Willow & Mark - (futuristic jazz) (37/40) Ninja style.

Quote of the week - "Get that bat away from me." Erin Andrews.
Special moments - Bruce Willis came to visit his daughter Rumor. Touching and supportive.
Side note -  Julianne's cleavage was ridiculous. If I want to see your boobs, I'll let you know.
TOMORROW - DWTS 10th anniversary special!!!!
America's choice next week.

The Age of Adaline

I really wanted to love this movie. The good news is I didn't hate it. I can't tell you how many writing contest entries I've read that start with a car accident that (without plausible explanation) propels the heroine through time. This wasn't that - exactly - but similar. And how she stopped aging was explained (narrated), which leads me to the next problem.

I don't care to have someone narrating the movie to me. Irks me. I mean, I liked it in The Princess Bride when Peter Faulk's character reads to his grandson. That's fine. Clever even. And parts of The Age of Adaline were also clever. But not the first ten minutes or the last ten minutes where the movie was explained to me like I'm an idiot. And I never once got the chills. You know, the chills.

I enjoyed Michiel Huisman as Ellis. He's tall, dark and handsome. Likable. Sexy. I enjoyed him on HBOs Treme and Nashville. I guess he's on a little show called Game of Thrones. I've never seen it. Harrison Ford was okay. Cathy Baker is always good, in my opinion. I thought Amanda Crew was a little gem as Kikki.

And then there's Blake Lively. I glanced at her bio. I've heard of her, of course. I guess I saw her in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but don't remember her. No, I've never seen Gossip Girls - sorry. Blake (aka Adaline) was consistently melancholy throughout the entire movie. And men (in the movie) seem to be drawn to that sort of thing. Not sure why. She was sooooooo serious, as well as seriously sad for being ageless and beautiful and rich, apparently. Sure, immortality comes with its drawbacks, but come on, cut loose, be happy.

Some stuff just didn't add up for me or make sense, which is fine if the movie is good enough to allow me to suspend my disbelief. The romance wasn't there for me, I just didn't buy it. It was love at first sight for him, but to me, she didn't have the personality for it to be true love. Visually, it was a lovely movie. A well-made movie with pretty people. A modern day fairytale. Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I just didn't love it.

Previews - Love & Mercy with John Cusack - gave me the chills.

It's that time again. Dancing With The Stars spring break special!!! Why spring break? I have no idea. Who cares?

Patti and Artem - (quickstep) (29/40) "Cool by the pool", according to Len. Wardrobe malfunction. She lost her shoe.

Nastia and Derek - (tango) (34/40) He spun her like a top. I thought the song was wrong for the dance, but the wardrobe choice was thumbs up.

Willow and Mark - (salsa) (34/40) Tequila!!!! and extra ribs. I thought it was a hot mess, but the judges disagreed.

Robert and Kym - (jive) (28/40) Started out right in a 56 T-bird, the Beach Boys, high energy. Fun! Big smiles! Cutie cute couple. Her costume was a-maz-ing.

Noah and Sharna - (rumba) (29/40) Drama in practice. He's incredible. Inspirational. Enough said.

Rumor and Val - (jazz) (32/40) Bootylicious (not sure how to spell it). "It's a ballroom not a bedroom" (per Len). Deliciously raunchy.

Chris and Witney - (waltz) (31/40) Hopelessly Devoted to You. They were pretty in pink. "He wooed us all", according to Carrie Anne. Now I'm a  little afraid for Robert and Kym.

Riker and Allison - (samba) (37/40) I love this kid. Fan girl - Carrie Anne (and me too). Is he really Derek's cousin? They "joked" he was. I can really see it. Now. After being told. I'm a little slow.

Team Wipeout - (Yolo) (39/40) Cute costumes. "Tight, together, terrific", per Len.

Team Trouble - (39/40) Okay, I think they nailed it. Bare chests. Short skirts. What's not to love?

Dance like no one is watching.

Disney Night!!!!

It's Monday. You know what that means.
It's Dancing With The Stars night.
And it's Disney week!
I love DWTS. Here's the thing. Disclaimer. Don't hate me.
I'm not a fan of Disney. Not the movies. Not the music. Not the parks.
Okay, yes, I love some of the characters. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy. Have I redeemed myself?
No? Get over it. 
Suzanne & Tony (Jazz - Lady and the Tramp) (28/40) I wish my body looked as smokin' hot as hers. Jeopardy. Wardrobe malfunction. Rehearsal meltdown.
Robert & Kym (Quickstep - Mary Poppins) (24/40 ) How adorable are they? Out of step, timing off, still adorable. A little creepy that the cameraman was eaves dropping on their private conversation last week. Step away from their privacy bubble, dude.

Patti & Artem ( Waltz - Pinocchio) (27/40) Injury. Jeopardy. The judges threw lots of adjectives out there: beautiful, charming, magical, lovely...just to name a few.

Willow & Mark (Fox Trot - Alice in Wonderland) (34/40) Top of the leader board. Eat me. Drink me. Dance me.

Chris & Witney (Quick Step - Hercules) (27/40) Bottom of the leader board. Injury. Temper tantrum. Alfonso wisdom. Wardrobe regrets.

Noah & Sharna (Fox Trot - Aladdin) (28/40) Magic carpet ride. Quote of the week: "Suck it up, Princess". And he did.

Riker & Allison (Paso - Pirates) (38/40) Rocker Riker channels Captain Jack Sparrow and nails it. "Slayed it. Killed it." according to Carrie Ann. Left her babbling. I thought it was a bit of a hot mess, but I already made it quite clear I know nothing about dancing.

Rumor & Val (Samba - Little Mermaid) (39/40) Under the sea practice. Bad girl doesn't want to be a princess she wants to be evil. She dances with an eel instead of a prince. Good on her. Love her for it. Rave reviews!!! Well deserved.

Nastia & Derek (Jazz - Frozen) (38/40) Sunnyside up. Fun, fun, Frozen fun.

OMG! Robert and Kym are at the bottom of the leader board! Say it ain't so.
Spring Fling Special next week.

Woman in Gold (2015) - Moviefone

Woman in Gold (2015) - Moviefone

I laughed. I cried. I got chills a few times. Helen Mirren is always great and did not disappoint. Ryan Reynolds - well - even nerded down he was cute and endearing. It was good to see Katie Holmes on the screen again.

No sex. No romance. No one gets murdered. Nothing blows up. Just a heart-warming story about justice and principles and righting wrongs. It's a era in history that should not be forgotten.

Most Memorable Year!

You know what tonight is! Yup. Dancing With the Stars night! Whoo hoo! And it's "Most Memorable Year" night.
It's interesting to see who picks their best year and who picks their worst year as most memorable.
Nastia & Derek - (tango) - she picked her Olympic year, so an amazing year for her.
Michael & Peta - (rumba) - he chose his coming out year that caused a rift between he and his dad, so, bad year.
Riker & Allison - (tango) - he picked the year his band took off. Love that choice and his dance and the song (Shut Up and Dance). And he's in jeopardy!!!! No way!!!!
Robert & Kim - (waltz) - he chose the year his mother died. Very touching. Elegant. Charming. HIGH SCORE!
Chris & Witney - (rumba) - being on the Bachelore was his most memorable year. Surprise surprise. Beautiful song.
Patti & Artem - (?) - birth of her child. Good choice.
Rumor & Val - (waltz) - Bullying. A girl in pain. She reminds me of Kelly Osborne. Beautiful, talented, vulnerable. Adele song. Love it. Dance. Love it.
Suzanne & Tony - (waltz) - she chose Three's Comapny year and dedicated it to John Ritter. Charming and magical. And she is a testament to the Thighmaster.
Willow & Mark - (contemporary) - Hunger Games year. I'm not a fan of contemporary, but the judges were. "Bravo" per Carrie Anne.
Noah & Sharna - (contemporary) - 2005 when he was injured. He's inspirational, for sure. Amazing! A hero.
Who was my fav? I can't decide. Rumor & Val or Riker & Allison. Impossible to pick.
Next week! Disney Night!

Latin Night!!!!

It's Dancing With The Stars night, and more importantly it's Latin Night.

Disclaimer: I don't dance. I don't know anything about dancing, which doesn't stop me from loving and sometimes hating certain dance routines.

Rumor and Val - (Salsa) Nicely done. Apparently Rumor's whoo ha is a deadly weapon, but no blood was spilled.

Charlotte and Keo - (Rumba) Bruno just called her dumb but pretty (he thinks I'm pretty *flutters eyelashes*). I loved the song.

Michael and Peta - (Salsa) (Pitbull!!!!) Michael didn't break her. That's a good night.

Riker and Allison - (Salsa) Who is this kid???? He brought the sexy!!!! I feel dirty.

Suzanne and Tony - (Salsa) I hope I can salsa at 68. The woman can shake her moneymaker.

Chris and Witney - (Tango) I like the song and I'm a fan of the no-shirt-tuxedo. Tossing a twirling girl in the air and catching her on the way down is impressive.

Robert and Kym - (Rumba) My favorite Shark. Now I'm a fan of the no-jacket-tuxedo. He's buff. And sensitive. Don't get me started on how charming he is or how adorable they are together.

Patti and Artem - (Cha-cha) I love love loved her costume, the color and cut. She looked amazing.

Willow and Mark - (Paso) Fire and Ice.

Noah and Sharna - (Tango) WOW! Well done.

Nastia and Derek - (Samba) Me like. Primal.

To sum up the evening, there were plenty of bare, hairless man chests. It was a good night.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

I loved this sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel!

I wish wish wish I could have watched the original and the sequel back to back. I love Sonny (Dev Patel). He reminds me of my son. And even if he didn't, he is fun and funny and adorable (like my son). And handsome (also like my son). His dialogue was charming. Maggie Smith's character (Muriel) remained brutally honest to the end. Not a bad thing.

Yes, I pretty much knew what was going to happen, because they dropped hints like bombs, but I enjoyed the journey. I smiled a lot and chuckled a few times. Watching warm weather movies depicting exotic locations when it's cold outside is always a treat. The movie had romance and lovely visuals and music and dancing and an upbeat message.

What would I have changed? I would have swapped Richard Gere (Guy)  and David Strathhairn's (Ty) roles, although David was great in his role. Actually, I thought Richard Gere was wrong for the movie. Sorry. But that might just be me.

I Love DWTS!

I missed week one (season 20 - can that be right?) of Dancing With the Stars :(

So I'm playing catch up with My Jam Monday. As always, I don't know who some of these "stars" are. I will be spending the next few weeks getting to know everyone.

Who am I rooting for? I love Kym and Robert (he is my favorite Shark). Rumor and Val blew me away. Loved his impression of Bruce Willis. Michael and Peta surprised me (in a good way). Who is this Riker guy? Wow!

For me the music is as important as the dance. I always love Pit Bull - goes without saying. Of course Rumor Has It (Adele), and Somebody That I Used To Know (Gotye).

Who are you loving? Fav song? Best dance of the night?

Going, Going, Gone...

Bitter sweet...

I have requested, and been granted the return of my four books published through Ellora's Cave Publishing: Lily in Wonderland, This Side of Dead, Dodging Cupid, and Holiday Hostage. If you have a burning desire to read them...after March 24th, they may no longer be available. I have removed the covers, buy links and blurbs from my blog.

Where do we go from here? Not sure. I will probably one day self-publish them. For now, I'm going to concentrate on the next book, which is Star Kissed, and the next....
