The Bourne Legacy (2012): Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton

The Bourne Legacy opens with Jeremy Renner as Arron Cross, using survival skills in a snowy remote mountainous environment, fighting off wolves, while popping green and blue pills.  These little pills are the secret to creating the ultimate "survival of the fittest" man.   Cross, a new hero of the The Bourne trilogy is facing high stakes resulting from the events of the previous three films. 

Rachel Weisz, Dr. Marta Shearing, is the doctor in charge of monitoring the blood and body transformations from Cross, and other pill popping agents returning from missions overcoming the elements.   The action begins violently in the snow and remains twisting and turning throughout this mesmerizing and entertaining movie.  When the agents begin to expire, the story explodes into gut racing action scenes.  Edward Norton, Retired Col. Eric Byer, USAF, of course, is involved in the sudden demise and eerily rings evil on a quest to extinguish the "chosen" few.   Like the Bourne series, Cross and Dr. Shearing are chased by the diabolical.    Of course, Jason Bourne's, name is mentioned, possibly foreshadowing the next Bourne adventure flick.

The acting is superb, storyline a bit weak and confusing, yet overall an entertaining movie.    Remember end of summer movies are about pure mindless entertainment and are not meant to be an Oscar award winning affair.   Enjoy this rocking ride.

The last few months have been pivotal on proving what is important in life.  At least for me.  While reading numerous books, writing, working in my office, gardening, making dinner, watching Netflix, being with my husband, one powerful thought was apparent, "We need human connection especially, "The Sisterhood."
Having girlfriends is imperative along with your family and loved ones.  The sisterhood is a dynamic elixir that feeds our minds and souls.  And, yes, we can talk for hours, following tangents in conversations and often without garnering or wanting a solution to our angst.  We just want to "be." Men often are the opposite, and not always a fan of our ramblings. We love it that they want to "solve" the issue but we on the other hand just want to vent, analyze, and forget.   After all, we sisters need to state 20,000 words a day versus men …

Fourth Of July 2020

Home for the Holiday


"With freedom comes responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt
Parades, apple pie, contests, hamburgers, friends, family, and fireworks are the essential ingredients for a celebratory Fourth of July.  This year will be unforgettable as the Covid 19 virus has changed the celebration landscape.  The large gatherings, festivities and essential mix of fun are on the shelf across the country. We ourselves are accustomed to celebrating in the islands viewing a parade, taking walks, wildlife adventures, exquisite dinners and viewing incredible fireworks that fill the sky.  Though this is year is unique, never fret. 
We have an opportunity to slip back in time and create an old fashioned Fourth of July at home.  Many of you are wondering what to do.  Well, think back to when you were little.  What did you do then? 
Growing up in the Northwest, we had sparklers, black snakes, and fountains to light off in the driveway. We attended barbecues with family or friends and watched…
