*** 1/2

The first thing I need to say about “Shrek Forever After” is it didn’t suck. Thank God. My mom thought it would stink and my sister, Carol didn’t even go with us. But surprise, the final Shrek movie is well plotted, better written and more laugh inducing. It brings back some of the magic of the first two films. Read More»

A recent “camping” trip brought back memories of camping in yesteryear, with three little girls along to liven things up. We usually chose state or natural campgrounds and paid about $5 a night when I went on a diatribe about how expensive it was and we’d never come back for that price.

We did come back, of course, and today the Corps of Engineers campground charges $22 per night. At least that is mollified somewhat by being reduced to half price for seniors. Read More»
