I wanted to mention that I have posted the Lemon Squares recipe over on BlackSheep Bakes. There are lots of Lemons Bar recipes - this is the one I sort of concocted and used. I like it because it is like a butter cookie with a tangy lemony topping - whats not to like.
Last night I watched a couple of flicks - one the was new to me and the other an old favorite. The old favorite was "Russian Ark" - 2002 - a scrumptious film that is done all in one take - one single take - imagine that. Almost 100 mins of no breaks for anything - It is a Russian film with subtitles so that you can follow what is being said. The joy of the film is that you move the The Hermitage in and out of History for the past 300 years as a spectator that can see but not be seen by those around you, except for your guide - who is an 18th century visitor. I love this film and have seen it many times. Here is a the trailer from the film.....
You see Tzar's and Tzarina's, aristocrats and the military, war, theatre and a ball. - I see something new on each viewing. I can not recommend this film highly enough, breathtaking in scope, beautiful art, beautiful Palace and gorgeous music!!
The other film was "Titan A.E." - 2000 - and animated film set in the future in space. With the voices of many stars including , Matt Damon, Bill Pullman, Nathan Lane and Drew Barrymore I was totally surprised at how much I enjoyed this film. Lots of action and great visuals. Created By Don Bluth and Gary Oldman I would also recommend this film.
At our house or I should say in one of the enclosed courtyards we have some new friends....
They are actually old friends in new surroundings..... and we have this little lady.....
... she has built nest on the ground and has two eggs she is sitting on - now I call that one dingy bird. We, and a lot of others, walk our dogs in the courtyards around the buildings and it is all I can do to keep the Lolly-nator from jumping this little bird every time we go outside.
I think that's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments - do come again!!
