  • “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” should more aptly be titled “Average Joe.”
    Unless a sequel comes many years after it’s predecessor, it usually retains most of its cast. This is not the case with the new “G.I. Joe” flick. The characters and events differed so much it has the feel of its own stand-alone movie.

    The only real connecting point is Jonathan Pryce, who returns as the president and the bad guy disguised as the president, a plot point set up in the last film.

  • The day before Easter I was rendered speechless.

    Yeah, I know that’s hard to believe, but it really happened.

    After running a few errands together Saturday morning, my other half, Rebecca Ricks, and I returned home, and Rebecca got ready for work. Because it was my day off, I didn’t have much on my schedule except to run some errands later. Yeah, I needed to get some Easter items for Rebecca, but we keep a pretty low spending limit so I knew it wouldn’t require an extensive shopping spree.

  • The Fort Knox Potted Few Garden Club recently met at the Elizabethtown home of Bonnie Gunter with cohost Bonnie Lush.
