"I really believe in the liberating and humanizing power of cinema. I believe that images and ideas that are carried by stories can have the power to strike you in your solar plexus, and really change your mind. I think the frequency can be spread with a little drop in the ocean with a film can really have a big, big power." Filmmaker Alejandro Inarritu

Interesting tidbit about animal dreaming: Scientists surmise that it is likely that all mammals dream because they enter REM sleep.
I dream about the pets we have loved and lost. I wonder if pets that have lost beloved owners dream about them. I'll bet they do. If you haven't seen this video, it is rather heartbreaking. A precious dog mourns the loss of his owner upon her grave. I sure hope this dog has pleasant dreams where they reunite.
Childhood sleepovers create lasting memories of summer time fun, like a camping experience but only indoors or maybe in a backyard tent and of course under the watchful eyes of patient adult supervisors. Sewers can add to the fun event.
I know a lot of people enjoy the Kombucha type teas. There are many brands out there. But as always it is on the buyer to beware. We are learning to read labels which is important to our overall general health, and sometimes it is ultra important to those who have health issues.
The Health-Ade Kombucha beverages haven't been truthful on their labels. They have underreported their contents, to the point that it was harmful to many people. Last year there was a class action lawsuit filed because their labels had the sugar levels incorrectly reported. They were 2-4 times more, thus causing health concerns of their consumers.
Yet another class action lawsuit that is claimable this year, is that this Kombucha beverage is a non-alcoholic beverage as written on their label. But as it turns outs the beverage contains 2 times-4 times the amount of alcohol, thus making it an alcoholic beverage!!
If you have purchased this brand of Kombucha you have the right to join the class action lawsuit and have purchased this brand from the dates of 3/6/14-5/24/19 without proof of purchase(up to $40.) and with purchase receipts (up to $80.) If you would like to join, you can file a claim online at
Please continue to be good consumers and read all the labels on the foods and drinks you consume and please report the brand if you do find some type of discrepancy.
I know I had several dreams last night but I woke up so abruptly, I did not have a chance to mull over them so now...they have faded back into my subconscious. Ah, well. The ones I need to hold onto are the ones that I will remember. Like these:
Always running to school. At first, I was in high school and was being told that I might not graduate because I failed social studies. Then, I was allowed to graduate as long as I took a social studies class that summer.
Haha. That made total sense to me because while I am a very social person by nature, I have not been social for years due to my family needs. (Plus, I just prefer hanging out with my family.) I do need and miss friends though.
Later, my school dreams were in a college/university setting so I must be making progress! But, I was always late so maybe not as much progress as I hope.

By week's end it will be visible in the southwest before sunset. Jupiter and Saturn are rising around 9pm and 11pm respectively. Jupiter is heading toward opposition on the 10th, when it will be rising at sunset and visible all night. Around 3 or 4am, both planets are visible in the south.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is one of the screenwriters for the latest James Bond film, due in 2020. Speaking on the depiction of women in the Bond film, Waller-Bridge said “There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not [the Bond franchise] is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women... I think he’s absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn’t have to. He needs to be true to this character.”
The actresses starring in "Bond 25" are Lea Seydoux, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, and Naomie Harris.
