Manchester by the Sea: A Review

I finally saw Manchester by the Sea. Casey Affleck's performance is exceptional. I was also very impressed with Lucas Hedges' performance. The film itself, while very good in exploring dealing with grief, has some writing and stylistic flaws (although I thought the dialog between the characters was well done). This is one of those films you can't get into without giving it all away. So rather than do that, I will recommend you go out to see it or rent it.

Heather Graham

Given Heather Locklear and Heather Thomas Rule 5 posts this week, I am going for the trifecta with Heather Graham

Powerline: Oscars, what Oscars? There is plenty of alternative TV to watch, or better yet read a book.

If NPR readers can boycott the Oscars so can you!  And while I am not a big Gawker fan, this Oscar advice is pretty spot on.

Democrats Want To Live Deliciously: Witches Convene To Put Spell On Trump


The GOP Congress has two primary missions this year: Get a decent replacement for Justice Scalia and Repeal Obamacare. Don't screw it up. Don't listen to Boehner.

Women Eating Cannoli

 la dolce vita

DaTechGuy had a post from CPAC about Kellyanne Conway and Sean Hannity taping.  Apparently Pete also gave Kellyanne a cannoli (according to RSM).  And Kellyanne loves cannoli.

Some of these pictures below are from Florence. Florence? That is probably a less authentic cannoli than one you might get in New York or Boston (which at least might be made by Sicilian immigrants). Cannoli are a Sicilian desert.

All Gone!

Here's another Sicilian Cannoli Recipe
