Happy Bastille Day! and Monday Movie Review


Hope everyone had a happy Bastille Day. I have to admit, I only know about Bastille Day because of my cyclist husband who taught me to like watching movies about bike races like the Tour de France (yes, they actually have them on DVD at That's Rentertainment for all of you to enjoy).

Speaking of movies, I highly recommend the BBC's Planet Earth Series. It is educational, entertaining, and beautifully filmed. We've only watched the first two discs, but we are all hooked. I would think about buying the series if it wasn't so easy to rent it from Netflix. The disc with the Cave episode is a favorite with the boys. The mountain of bat guano covered in cockroaches was enough for me to have nightmares, but it was fascinating for everyone else. They have a part where the camera crew go into what they went through to get some of the shots and it was nothing short of insane.
