Star Trek Into Darkness (2013): Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Eric Bana, Bruce Greenwood, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin

"You think you are safe. You are not."  Kahn

Star Trekkies are in for a fun-filled summer movie experience. Star Trek first appeared on television in September 1966 and since then has traveled through time and space with several television spinoffs and a vast array of movies on the large screen.  Star Trek Into Darkness, takes a fresh spin by focusing on Chris Pine, James T. Kirk, earlier career and entire officer team on the U.S.S. Enterprise with Kirk at the helm.  The story begins with a primitive planet where First Officer, Zachary Quinto, Spock, is trapped over a boiling ocean of lava.  Spock, calm, cool and collected is ready to die to save his crew.  Kirk, of course, does not allow this to happen, breaking Federation protocol and saving Spock.  Facing consequences for a brash decision, Kirk, is stripped of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and at the same time finds an unstoppable evil force within their own organization sending shock waves and crisis amongst the land. The mass destruction evil player, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kahn, escapes to space after creating deadly havoc.  Kirk bent on a mission of vengeance after the destruction is given back the Enterprise and blasts into space to a war-zone world to capture the evil doer.  As our favorite heroes speed via warp drive into outer space to conquer evil, friendships are formed and torn, love examined along with a splattering of Romulan's, and even a tribble. 

Star Trek into the Darkness is fantastic from start to finish. The cast is fresh, storyline believable with the  familiar and much loved witty batter amongst the cast of characters.  Audiences will eagerly look forward to more adventures of the starship Enterprise with the new cast as it speeds forward on a 5 year mission where no man has gone before.

Merry Christmas 2020

  Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas one and all.  May you have a very festive day.   What a crazy year!  At the onset of the year 2020, we all had the best intentions, goals, and anticipation.   Of course, 2020 proved to be the opposite of anything we expected.  Completely 180 degrees of "What Now?"   There is no need to explain because we all have lived it.  What is for certain is that the year is finally ending. Thank goodness.  Some have stated this was the worse year in the history of our country.  Whether it was or is not, the end is in sight and a vaccine is beginning to be administered.  Hopefully, we each can reassess what is important in our lives, anticipate some sort of normalcy swooping back into our lives.  After all, we are social creatures and being isolated is not healthy for the mind or the body.  Spirit of Christmas - The Christmas Star Last Seen 1226 Never stop believing in the future and unknown.  This season we all decorated to the nines, baked cookies, laid ou

Inspiration Weekly Lift - Happy Holidays

  What Brings You Joy? The Spirit of the Holidays It is the small things after all that brings a joyous glow to this holiday season.  This morning, my husband, lit up the living room mantle with some new lights for me to see.  The effect was beautiful, and it made my day sparkle.  Now more than ever, these cherished gestures are what we are longing for at the end of 2020.  And there are many for us to receive and for us to give to others.  We need to be present and aware of the beauty swirling around us.  What we know for certain is that everything in 2020 has been turned upside down. Yet, we continue, dust ourselves off and keep on moving with grace, a smile, and a positive attitude.  Like Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch Who Stole Christmas .  After all, why not?  No one can break our spirits and love for each other.  The holiday is here with new festivities.  We are constantly reminded that our lives are the best gift.  Of course, it is.  We may not have gatherings, but the heart of the

Happy New Year - 2021

  A New Chapter "Cheers to the new year and another chance for us to get it right." - Oprah Winfrey The end of the year fast approaches.  It has been a roller coaster ride for everyone.  The virus, lockdowns, tragic deaths, national election, and other elements caused for a turbulent and unforgettable year.  One we will never forget.  Some say this is the worst year in our history surpassing the depression of the 1930's, September 11th and various Wars.   Perhaps this is so because our country and the entire world shut down at various points.  Even today, lock downs exist, virus is on the rise and vaccines are being administered.  We will never forget last Spring and Summer when eerie photos of empty streets filled the newswires, epic violence occurred and of course endless news about the benevolent virus. However, we continue onward.  We eagerly move forward to a fresh beginning.  We wash away 2020 and start anew with a clean slate filled with possibility, hope and peace
