Holiday Wishes

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been doing the almost daily movie reviews that I’ve been posting the last few months.  I’ve been kicking back a little, getting ready for Christmas.  I’ve also watched three of the four remaining Best Picture winners that I had not seen – Hamlet (1948), The Great Ziegfeld (1936), and How Green Was My Valley (1941) down, only Cavalcade (1933) to go. 

I’m going to be visiting with my family this weekend, and then we’ll see about picking things up again after that. 

I’ve got plans for a re-read and re-watch of all the Harry Potter books and movies.  I’ve not seen or read any of them since they came out and I’m curious what my impressions will be now that they are all complete.  I'll write each review before moving on to the next book/movie. 

I’ve also got a ton of hikes to write up.  I spent seven out of eight days hiking in Acadia National Park back in September and I’ve got a lot of new trails and pictures to post.  I’ve also been toying with a bunch of other ideas, so I’m certainly not out of topics.  (And with well over 100 brainstormed groupings of movies, I won’t be out anytime soon.)

I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Good Winter Solstice, Happy Holidays, Merry Festivus (not so obscure TV reference) and a Good Gurnenthar’s Ascendance (really obscure TV reference).
