Just a quick note that if you haven’t seen Argo yet, you should rent, stream or buy it and watch it.
The story line is about the 1979 hostage crisis during President Carter’s administration. Ben Affleck plays a CIA operative who invents a movie called “Argo” and makes the Iranians believe the escapees are part of a Canadian film crew scouting for an exotic location to film the movie.
I remember when the hostages were freed, ahem, and I don’t believe that this a strictly historical interpretation of the events as they happened, but given the horrible bombing in Boston last week and the general state of the world, we all could use a feel-good movie about America and Americans and this movie is just what the Dr. ordered!
I know that I am the last person in America to usually see new films, but the nearest theatre is a ways from here and Netflix is soooooo convenient. If you haven’t seen it, you must! If you have seen it, this might be a good week to watch it again.
I will say though, that it is just a shame that Ben Affleck has had to go through life so homely. HAH!
I loved it and I bet you will also…

Don’t download this book
The download is wonky and hard to get around in, difficult to read because the pages skip back and forth at the slightest touch, quite disappointing actually.
Do buy this book
The photography is amazing, you will want the actual book so you can just sit and flip through the pages while you are planning next year’s garden. I’m going to order a paper copy so I can do just that next month some evening, in front of the fire, with a glass of wine, and plan my garden. Is there anything better in the world than a glass of wine, a roaring fire and a beautifully photographed garden book on a crisp spring night? I think not…
The book is divided into chapters for each of the vegetables discussed. For each one, there are growing notes and suggestions, recipes and seasoning ideas and even suggestions for what varieties to grow, and, of course, those gorgeous photographs. They are even wonderful when photographed off my ipad!
See what I mean?
It’s the story of Mr. Slater’s garden, told with an engaging, honest voice that any gardener would love. Great gift idea!!Posted in She Loves | 7 Comments »
I read this in one fell swoop on a cross country flight recently. It’s a love story and a story about wonderful food and it has recipes! Loved it!!!!
