Awesome Things to do on a Saturday

So, on Saturday, I got up as usual and sat at my computer. My husband had gone out to visit his mom in the … place where she lives. But I had awesome things to do, so I decided I take a drive and do them. It had been such a long time since I’d last driven my car. And...

Good Health and Wellness = Happiness

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. There is nothing more important for a person’s mental well-being than to take care of one’s physical health and wellness. As a writer, I know all too well the hazards associated with sitting at a...

The Saturday Matinee SciFi Movie

Today’s Saturday Matinee is Part Five of a parody of the low-budget scifi movie, Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women. This is, in fact, a free scifi movie, in that the film has fallen into the public domain. So anyone can use the footage for whatever...

Books and Coffee are the Perfect Combination

There’s something about curling up with a book (or even an ereader) with a great cup of coffee that just can’t be beat. Books and coffee go together like popcorn and movies. And as a writer, I find coffee (or, to be more specific, espresso) to be an inextricable...

The Saturday Matinee: One of the Best B-Movies

How do you judge what makes a B-movie one of the “best B-movies”? By their very nature, a B-movie is one made on a limited budget, but isn’t an arthouse film. It’s all very subjective, but I think this film could qualify. And, so …...
