Writer-director Damien Chazelle's latest feature film project is "Babylon", a period drama that is set at the moment when movies were transitioning to sound. Emma Stone and Brad Pitt are possible leads for the pic. I'm not a fan of Chazelle's "Whiplash", but am looking forward to "Babylon" if it doesn't mock the incredible artistry of silents (i.e. "Singin' in the Rain" and "Valentino").

Agriculture doesn't need to be a solitary pursuit. Communities that are able to work the soil together develop bonds not only with each other, but with the earth. Here's a look at what community sponsored agriculture is and how we can all benefit from it.
A new feature film from Netflix, "Mank", will have Gary Oldman playing screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz. Mankiewicz wrote "The Pride of the Yankees" (1942) among other films, but is known primarily as the co-writer of Orson Welles's "Citizen Kane". The extent of Mank's contribution has been the subject of controversy with Welles having to defend himself against charges that Mank was wholly responsible for the screenplay of "Kane". (The fact that Mank's subsequent work never reached the heights of "Citizen Kane" speaks for itself, I think.) This new movie is being directed by David Fincher (in black-and-white) from a screenplay written by his father.
How is your sewing going? Are your current sewing projects sparked by thoughts of seasonal store promotions for Christmas in July, gift needed for an upcoming New Grad, dorm room ideas for Off to College, or school necessities for K-12 Back to School?
Sophia Loren is making her first feature film in a decade. A remake of the 1977 film "Madame Rosa", the new film is titled "The Life Ahead" and is directed by Loren's son, Edoardo Ponti.

I tried something a little different tonight. Three thin, boneless pork chops slightly browned on each side in a skillet. In a Corningware pan or use an oven proof skillet, place chops on top of two apples peeled and cored and cut up (I use a corer which does two things at one time, cut up into eighths and cores) dusted with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover with foil and bake for about 30 minutes. (This takes longer if you use thicker chops with the bone in).
Serves 3 (add chops if someone wants two pork chops)
Early March and Lent found my husband and me in the Holy Land on a pilgrimage. This trip was awesome. We were there for about 10 days. This was a remarkable way to be on a Lenten journey. To walk in the Lord's footsteps and be in the places mentioned in the Bible. Just awesome.
After coming home for about two weeks from the Holy Land, we flew to Sydney Australia and boarded a Princess ship. We were in four ports in New Zealand and then we were in Papeete Tahiti for Easter Sunday. We arrived there about an hour before Mass began. A number of us left the ship as soon as we could and hurried to the church which was about two blocks away from the port. It was standing room only. The Mass was in French but the beauty of the Catholic Church is that no matter where you are in the world, Mass is the same even though the language is not. There was a Baptism and First Communion celebrated at the Mass.
This Lent my Bible group read a chapter of John each day beginning on April 1st. There were 21 chapters and Easter was the 21st of April. Reading John after having been in the Holy Land was for me experiencing the entire of the story.
We had our 1st of the month roundtable today. In honor of July 4th we discussed Fold3. We went around the table and looked up an ancestor or two and discussed the features of the Fold3 service. Fold3 is part of the Ancestry.com line of products.
Last night I made sure I used the small eggplant that I had purchased at the produce stand. There are only three of us here.
I sliced it lengthwise in 1/2 inch slices (trimmed off a little of the skin on the end slices) brushed both sides with olive oil broiled each side for about 5 minutes brushed tomato sauce on the slices put sliced mozzarella cheese on each slice
baked in the oven until the cheese was melted (this last part I had placed something else in the oven so I baked them)
Alone (even at 5 slices) it would have made a complete dinner.
Summer and backyard BBQ parties go hand in hand. Good food, family and friends, and happy conversations. When there is little time or budget to plan for inspired theme decorations, let just a few cotton gingham prints, denim scraps, or colorful paisley bandanas add to the party atmosphere.

With fresh from the garden tomatoes, a tomato on a sandwich doesn't need to be a sadly pale slice. It can be bright red and bursting with flavor. Thickly sliced fresh tomato on white bread with mayo is taste bud heaven! Below, there are a dozen tasty sandwiches made with tomatoes. Summer tomatoes!
