Make them an Offer they Can’t Refuse

Don Corleone is coming to Jerusalem

Jerusalem Film Festival’s closing event will feature outdoor screening of ‘The Godfather’ in front of Old City walls with live symphonic orchestra.

The Israeli audience is about to get “an offer it can’t refuse,” as Don Corleone would say.

One of the most famous and popular cinema classics in history, “The Godfather,” is coming to Jerusalem in a way Israelis have never seen before: On a huge screen at the Sultan’s Pool, in front of the Old City walls, with a live symphonic orchestra which will play the immortal music of Italian composer Giovanni “Nino” Rota.

Make them an Offer

“The Godfather” is the first part of Francis Ford Coppola’s successful trilogy, which changed the crime film genre for good. The 1972 film stars Marlon Brando, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Vito Andolini Corleone (referred to as “Godfather” or “Don Corleone”).

The film will be screened as part of the closing event of the Jerusalem Film Festival, which will take place on a Saturday evening on July 18 in front of an audience of thousands of people.

OK friends..what are your favorite quotes from the flick? Whaddya mean you never saw it??!!!lol

Who wants to go to Jerusalem for the viewing? Heck. I’ll bring the popcorn. heh.

Memorial Day 2015

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

They fought for our precious Freedom of Speech..
Yet we get scared and stay Silent.

They fought for our precious Constitution..
while most of own children haven’t a clue about it.

They fought and died to offer us Freedom of the Press…
as our very own media aids and abets our sworn enemies.

They fought to offer us a government which serves the people…while our fellow citizens vote for a terrorist enabler, Dictator wanna be.

I apologize to the memory of all the soldiers and their sacrifices……

I promise I will
never give up the good fight.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Bless them and bless you all Sweet Friends.

Thank you for your service and may God bless you George.
You are not forgotten.

Mothers Day Gift Ideas! :-) (hint hint?)

Friday, May 8th, 2015

Being a mom is the hardest job of all, and it’s tough to find a Mother’s Day gift that will reflect your appreciation. What it comes down to is how much thought you put into the gift. So what are you gonna get your best cheerleader?

Thrifty Ideas that won’t break the bank. heh.

Homemade Potpourri

Create a natural air freshener for your mom by making a bowl of potpourri with a carefully picked blend that caters to her preferences.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries>

If your mom has a sweet tooth,(hint hint) this is the perfect gift for her. Melt some chocolate, and dip strawberries into the mixture. Place them on a baking tray, and cool it in the fridge.
(p.s. You can always cheat and eat these yourself)

Scrabble Coasters
Give this set of Scrabble coasters (or any other theme) that spell out the word “love” to the Scrabble-lover in your life.

Hand Cream
Hand cream should be in every woman’s beauty arsenal.

DIY Bath Salt
Bath salts are such an easy yet practical (and beautiful) present to make. Not to mention, it’s budget friendly, and you can get all the ingredients at the supermarket!

Mothers Day gifts


Buy Her Groceries

Moms definitely love and appreciate practical gifts. If you know your mom well, buy her groceries before she makes her regular trip to the supermarket. Or, ask her for her grocery list, and tell her you’ll be making the trip for her as a Mother’s Day present. If you like, you can slip in a surprise, such as a card.

Clean Up
Tell your mom to take the day off, and clean her residence until it looks like it’s brand-spanking new! Mop, scrub, and polish until you can see your reflection on the surfaces.
Organize her items if necessary, and if you’re ambitious, you can attempt to color-code her closet!
(Warning: Do not attempt to touch my closet..grr! ha)

Homemade Eye Mask
When traveling or simply at the end of a crazy workday, a soothing eye mask is just the thing to relax Mom’s worries away. And making one for her is also a great way to repurpose an old shirt.

Gold Spray-Painted Jars
Breathe new life into pasta and condiment jars with the help of gold spray paint.

DIY Tea Bags
Make these cute tea bags with a special blend of customized tea to show your love.

Wanna get me something?..ha

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MY DEAR FRIENDS!

It was once said:
“The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is parents.” ha
