101 Must See Films

Take 5: Feisty Females Who can resist a feisty female? Not me. Amongst my acquaintance it’s rumoured I may well be one. I don’t have the killer skills of the women in these fine films so have no idea why this rumour surfaced. But I can promise that you’ll find your very own favourite in this little lot. Kill Bill 1 – A classic come back film featuring a bucket load of grit, fortitude & great martial arts action scenes. Kill Bill 2 – you just know you’re onto a good thing when there’s a tribute to Bruce Lee in the action sequence Working Girl – Melanie Griffiths vacuuming in her underwear. Do I really need to say much more than that? Million Dollar Baby – Heart-breaking & fabulous Thelma and Louise – The film that defines the letters BFF The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – a pint sized heroine, brilliant investigative journalism & beautiful Swedish scenery. Please take my advice and watch the original Swedish version.  The Girl who Played with Fire - seq

Easter Wishes

On Good Friday I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to share a traditional family meal (Pickled Fish) with a guest. This dish is usually consumed with much relish by myself and my cousins. When it's not been possible to do so I've pushed this meal onto resistant friends who have become like family to me. Luckily they now savour it as much as I do. Sharing this meal reminded me how important the sharing of food is in many cultures and I sincerely hope you have the chance to share your Easter meal with your loved and dear ones. Cherish each other and give thanks for time spent together. I'm certainly making the most of those around me at present. Wishing you all a rejuvenating Easter. May your projects bear fruit, your dreams become reality and your family & friends share in all your joys. Happy Easter
