Movie Night

Last Friday night LaRue and I went to see Unstoppable. We hadn't been to a movie in quite some time. And this is the only one that even looked interesting. Plus it had been playing for a least a week so we thought there wouldn't be that big a crowd. And we figured everyone would be at the new Harry Potter movie instead. As it was, the theater was pretty much full.

Here's the official description:

Inspired by actual events, "Unstoppable" is an adrenaline rush fueled by director Tony Scott's signature mark of propulsive action rooted in the reality of ordinary people placed in extraordinary circumstances.
A veteran train engineer (Denzel Washington) and a young conductor (Chris Pine) race the clock to stop an unmanned runaway train - effectively a missile the size of a skyscraper - and prevent disaster in a heavily populated area.

It is a tense, action packed movie from the very beginning. At no time did the story drag or feel slow.

This is one movie we will purchase as soon as it is released. Great fun.

New Roof

If you've been following this blog for any length of time you'll remember that for the last two years I have had to cover the roof with plastic to keep out the rain and snow during the winter. No more. This last week we had a new metal roof put on the house!

Here are some pictures of the process:
