The Harley Rolls

a few weeks ago my mom asked her grandson George if he could clean up and get running my dad’s Harley that hasn’t run since my dad died over 12 years ago. my godchild takes after my dad he rides like the wind and has self taught skills in mechanics.  my mom said she wanted to see the Harley go down the lane again before she died. though I think my mom really wanted to give us a gift she wanted us to feel dad’s spirit in that Harley roar  she knew  we would see it too knowing he is here waiting...

La Femme Nikita

I find it pretty funny that the actual French title of this film is just Nikita, but hey, whatever. This is still a fantastic film, and I really enjoyed watching it — and it helped that I barely remembered the story. Great cast all around, and I really like how it ends. The only things I didn’t like were the score and the sound effects of the gun shooting, which are weirdly cavernous, and just took me a bit out of those scenes. As for the score, it’s by Eric Serra, and looking up what else...

Quigley Down Under

I do find it to be a pretty interesting setting for a Western, I’ll give it that. It’s not a bad movie, and I did enjoy watching most of it, although it did feel long and I found myself checking the time a few times. I also like the fact that the character Selleck plays is basically a sniper, as it changes up things a bit. Selleck never fully feels like he’s able to put on a proper Old West accent though, but I did really like Laura San Giacomo, she’s great. One thing that did bother me is...

Leek and bacon pizza

This is probably my second favorite pizza, after what the French call pizza reine (tomato sauce, ham, mushrooms, and cheese). There's no tomato sauce on this one. First, I slice a leek and steam/sauté it until tender. Then I sauté some lardons fumés (smoked bacon). When that's done, I use the bacon grease (there's not a lot) to caramelize some canned corn. The first of two pizzas for Thursday's lunch. I use my home-made dough, enough for two personal-sized pizzas, made about four hours prior t...

Magic in the Village

The winter days are grey and foggy in Bourdeilles, but look closely and you’ll see a little sparkle in the main street.   A young lady has dared to open up a shop in the practically abandoned center of the village. Her name is Pauline. Her’s is a gutsy adventure, but this is exactly the sort of madness that a small village in France needs. If you don’t live in Bourdeilles and you drive through too quickly you’ll think that it’s a ghost town, but if you slow down and turn your h...
