The weather outside is frightful.
We are expected to get up to 6 inches of the white stuff today. It's really gorgeous falling...but it's tough to get around in, if you don't have a one-horse open sleigh! Also, I lose my appetite for snow once Christmas is over and it's no longer needed for picturesque Christmas ambience.
Anyway...here are some things you need to know and/or check out on this last Friday in December:
--Speaking of snow, Jan has a lovely video of snow falling around her Colorado home. Especially nice if you live where there is no snow!
--Speaking of "Best Of" lists, Times Online has a list of the 100 Best Movies of 2007. (I've seen exactly three of them.)
--Denzel Washington's faith seems pretty genuine.
--More about the atheism of The Golden Compass author Phillip Pullman.
--Think you know the GOP candidates? The Evangelical Outpost will test your knowledge with a Pre-Caucus Candidate Quiz.
--The popular Heavenly Daze fiction series, by Angela Hunt and Lori Copeland, may be continuing.
--Three of my favorite gifts this Christmas were those I received from my daughter Elizabeth: the book Gone with the Wind, the DVD of the movie Gone with the Wind, and the book Rhett Butler's People, which is the story told from Rhett's point of view. I'm engrossed in that right now. I must say author has Donald McCaig nailed the voice and spirit of Rhett. I'm not done with the book yet, so I'll withhold my review until I've finished, but right now it definitely has me!
