On a serious note.

Today we give thanks to the God of all creation for all the wonderful things he does. In that thanks let us not forget those that are not sitting with family today enjoying a big meal.

Let us remember the troops who are on foreign land fighting for our freedom.

Let us remember the child on the street in Bangladesh who is begging for a meal today.

Let us remember the young girl who is held against her will to do unspeakable things for men with dark hearts.

Let us remember the forgotten who have been placed in a home to die.

Let us remember the boys who hold guns instead of books.

Let us remember the cold, the ill, the hungry, and the imprisoned.

Let us remember the least of these. Our neighbors. Our enemies.

Let us not forget what Jesus has taught us. Love your neighbor as yourself. Love the least of these.

Lord, in our comfort please make us uncomfortable.

Happy Thanksgiving

On a light note.

Often when we think of cars we think "what else can they come up with?" Okay, maybe you don't, but I do. Cars are cool. I think of them as works of art.

BMW has blown my mind with their latest work. Watch the video below and tell me it's not one of the coolest things you've seen.

Random Cellies

Today I figured out how to get the photos off my cell phone memory card.  So to celebrate I am sharing more  random pictures that have been stored up over the year.

Here is one of the girly with her puppy.  You can tell by the look on his face that he's loving it.

Where's Alex?

Alex got a treat at Sports Clips. He was in heaven here. When the guy pulled out the hot towel I was a bit worried but it ended up being his favorite part.

Sunflower at the farm.

A nice view in traffic.

Mt. Hood in the distance.

A crappy view in traffic.

The girly had to try on my new shades. I had to get a pic.

Morning Sky

This morning the sky was on fire.  I got a couple shots of it with my cell phone to share.

To the east was the sunrise which looked like clouds of fire surrounding the backlit Mt. Hood.  If you click on the photo you'll get the full size image and you can see Mt. Hood right above the car in front of me.

To the west was a beautiful double rainbow. This makes the longer commute totally worth it on mornings like this.

Movie Top Ten - Actress in a Leading Role

A short time ago I posted my top ten favorite male actors.  I had fun choosing the photos for that list.  This list is of my top ten favorite leading ladies.  The photos were harder to choose.  I did all black and white for the men and was going to do all color photos for the ladies but failed.  There were a couple black and whites of the ladies I could not resist.

Here's the ladies.

Amy Adams - I first remember seeing her in Enchanted and thought she was perfect in that role. Recently we saw her in Julie & Julia and she was perfect. She gets bonus points for being a redhead.

Angelina Jolie - Okay maybe she's not on the list for her acting abilities although I did love her in Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Ellen Page - Two movies; Juno and Hard Candy. I look forward to seeing this young lady more.

Emma Thompson - Can this lady do wrong? I don't think so. There is too much good to list so I'll mention a couple I just loved. In Stranger Than Fiction you could feel her neuroticism oozing off the screen. She brought Prof. Trelawney to life. In Nanny McPhee it was visually amazing to watch her transformation.

Jamie Lee Curtis - There is just something about this lady I just like but can't put my finger on it. A Fish Called Wanda = Brilliant!

Joan Cusack - Although she's rarely the leading lady, I just love it when she's in a movie. Grosse Pointe Blank is a favorite.

Madeline Kahn - Two movies put her on the list; Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles.

Maryl Streep - What's to say about the queen of the screen? She's amazing. She pulls of leading lady, bitch, tough chick, lover, tender-heart, monster, and comedienne like no other.

Queen Latifa - Despite Taxi I put her on the list. I loved her in Chicago and I think she is just beautiful.

Sigourney Weaver - Put a gun in this ladies hands and there is no stopping her. What guy didn't love her in Aliens?
