Thirteen Very Interesting Things to Tell You About



Genie Francis in "The Note"


Some interesting links to pass along to you today! As always, if you don't have time to peruse them all now, bookmark this page and come back at your leisure. Happy TT to all!

1) To help promote the movie "The Note"(which will premier on the Hallmark Channel on December 8th and is based on a book by one of my fave writers, Angela Hunt), Hallmark has set up a special site where you can “leave a note” for someone special. After leaving a note, you’ll be able to watch a snippet from the upcoming movie.

2) Just a few days left to prepare a shoebox full of Christmas presents for a needy child as part of Operation Christmas Child!

3) Sunday is Prayer for the Persecuted Church Sunday. Go here to find out more.

4) A sweet phone call to a Christian radio station.

5) Looks like Jack Bauer is a casualty of the writer's strike...at least for now.

6) Target is halting sales of a gruesome video game.

7) Yet another toy recall...and this one isn't because of lead.

8) I've been hearing good things about the movie Bella. Here's Roger Ebert's review.

9) Peggy Noonan's thoughts on Hillary Clinton.

10) It's apparently pretty good right now to be Carrie Underwood.

11) How Starbucks has become part of American culture.

12) Plugged In Online talks about Phillip Pullman, on whose books the movie "The Golden Compass" is based.

13) I just re-read Francine Rivers; Mark of the Lion trilogy (after winning it in a contest sponsored by Barb of A Chelsea Morning. People, these books are beyond good. I had forgotten just how incredible they were. If you love fiction, and haven't read them, DO. A little note about which I'm very excited: I'm going to be doing a radio interview with Francine Rivers! it's in the planning stages now.
