Thought this was pretty funny! There's a video of a gap-toothed, off-key 16-year-old KEITH URBAN performing on an Australian TV show called "New Faces". It's from 1983 . . . and was recently posted by a guy whose band won the competition. Keith took home the coveted "Encouragement Award."

"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" (PG-13)
Will Ferrell is back as Ron Burgundy, nine years after the first "Anchorman". And he has to reassemble his old team to work for a new 24-hour news channel in New York . . . reporting only what people want to hear, regardless if it's true.

"Walking With Dinosaurs" (PG)
A 3D, animated, family film about a runt dinosaur who loses his family in a fire. Then he has to battle a bunch of rivals, including his own brother, to become pack leader. Justin Long voices the little dinosaur, and John Leguizamo is the voice of his best friend, a prehistoric bird. Karl Urban is another one of the dinosaurs . . . he's the guy who plays Bones in the new "Star Trek" movies.

"Her" (R)
Joaquin Phoenix plays a guy who falls in love with his operating system, even though it's just a disembodied voice. Seriously. Although Scarlett Johansson does the voice. It's set sometime in the not-too distant future, when life is run by hyper-advanced "Siris".

"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (PG) and opens Christmas Day.
Ben Stiller plays a boring office worker with a crush on his co-worker, Kristen Wiig, and imagines himself impressing her in a bunch of heroic fantasies. When his boss threatens to downsize their jobs, he gets the chance to go on a REAL adventure, where he scales mountains and fights sharks. Sean Penn plays as mountain man photographer, and comedian Patton Oswalt works in the office.

"47 Ronin" (PG-13) and opens on Christmas Day.
Keanu Reeves plays an outcast who becomes the leader of a group of samurai, who want revenge against the overlord who killed their master. There's 47 of them and they're called "Ronin", in case you were wondering about the title.

"Grudge Match" (PG-13) and opens on Christmas Day.
Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro play boxing rivals who had a big-time fight in the 1980s. But now they're old fogies who need some cash. So their promoter, Kevin Hart, talks them into getting back in the ring. Some of the scenes flash back to when the guys were in their prime, and apparently they use CGI to make them look younger.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" (R) and opens Christmas Day.
A true story with Leonardo DiCaprio as a guy who made TONS of money on Wall Street in the nineties . . . illegally . . . then lost it all and went to jail. When he got out he wrote the book the movie is based on. He's known as the "wolf" of Wall Street because he starts a firm that targets super-rich clients for what's known as a "pump and dump" stock scheme. And then we watch him spend money and PARTY, until the feds take him down.

"August: Osage County" (R) and opens Christmas Day.
This is based on a major prize-winning play, about one of those families where everyone has dark secrets. Then they have to reunite at the family house after their dad's suicide. Meryl Streep plays the mother of three daughters, and Julia Roberts plays her oldest daughter who hasn't been back in years.

I started making crafts when I was a young girl but just a few years 
ago I started making jewelry after I went into a local bead store and 
saw a necklace on display that I really liked.  I decided to try 
creating my own necklace design and a matching pair of earrings.  I 
enjoyed that so much I sarted designing jewelry for my famiy and 
friends too!  Eventualy I had so many pieces that I ran out of people 
to give them too, so I decided to sell some of the pieces I created.  
I have enjoyed designing and creating this jewelry and want the people 
who are purchasing it to enjoy it too!

I have attached a few photos of my jewelry.

These are some wooden wall plaques I've crafted. I enjoy being able to create something with my hands and my heart. My son started me on the idea by asking me if I could make him something with his name for his room. I love all types of crafts and try my hand at different things all the time.

A trailer for the new "Godzilla" movie hit the web yesterday. Unfortunately, it doesn't give us a clear look at the monster. But you do see enough to know that it looks a LOT more like the Japanese version than the one in the 1998 American flick did.
