The Proposal with Sandra Bullock

I loved this! My hubby loved this! If you want to see a cleverly written, very funny, feel good movie, this romantic comedy is for you. Gotta give Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds kudos for their portrayals.

It's been very well reviewed, but often I don't pay them much attention. This time they got it right! Run, Don't Walk, to make this one the next movie you see!

Marrying Minda ... a great read from Tanya Hanson

Just a note to be sure to read Marrying Minda - Tanya Hanson's new western is available now on Amazon. Be sure to pick up your print copy!
Or if you love ebooks, it's available today at Wild Rose Press!!

The Story:
Mail-order bride Minda Becker arrives in Paradise, Nebraska and eagerly marries the handsome man who meets her stagecoach. His wedding kiss melts her toes. Too bad he's the wrong bridegroom. Cowboy Brixton Haynes can't deny he'd like a wedding night with the eastern beauty, but the last thing he needs is to be saddled with a wife and the three children his brother left behind. First chance he gets, he'll be back point riding along the Goodnight. But leaving Minda proves to be much harder than he expected.
Read a short excerpt:

Night fell soft and silent, and the snuffles of Norman Dale’s livestock comforted Brixton with memories of the trail. Lord, he couldn’t wait to get back. Habit had him walk quiet as he could from the barn to the house. Even the tiniest noise sparked stampedes on the trail, so his footsteps were cautious wherever he went.
At the back porch, he set down Minda’s valises and paused to peek in the back window. Her lush curves swayed beneath the simple dress as she readied the children for bed, and he couldn’t fill his vision fast enough. The memory of her soft sweet cheek brushed his fingertips once more, and his heart raced and his groin throbbed. It was the heartbeat he didn’t like; a man desiring a beautiful woman was just what a man did. But a galloping heart might mean a man felt something deep inside. Even worse, night after night alone on the trail, he’d keep seeing her shining hair sweep across Ned’s shoulders while she kissed the top of the lad’s head. So he pulled out his flask and drank deeper. It was too much like having a family of his own, something he swore he never needed. Suddenly he missed his brother more than he’d missed anything.

Until this minute, he had never felt shy about coming through this door without a knock. His wife’s current disposition gave him pause, but he had goods to deliver and damn, the kids just might like one of his good-night songs. His tongue clicked. Truth to tell, his bride would think him nothing but a rowdy bridegroom wanting a tumble between the sheets. Already she’d tried to disgrace him by letting a room at the boardinghouse just for herself. Another long hard swig consoled his throat as it emptied his flask.

Damn woman.

Conan's Tonight Show

Do you like Conan O'Brien as the new Tonight Show host?

I'll admit to being a fan. When my hubby worked nights, I'd stay up late to wait for him and began watching Conan's late night show. I'd usually be dosing off just at the 12:30 am hour and then Conan came on. Before I knew it, I'd be laughing at something so outrageous that I'd find myself wide awake! He is so off-the-wall and strange that it's refreshing and I find him funny. It's a matter of taste, I suppose.

Some friends don't enjoy his brand of humor. It's either, you like him or you don't. I do. You never know what he's going to do or say. And he's taping in our valley now, right up there at Universal Studios. There's something nice about familiarity too.

I've seen a taping of Jay Leno and he is a really nice man. He relates to his audience and talks to them in a warm way before the show. When his prime time show comes on the air in Sept, I'll probably watch him too. I need my talk show hosts to fall asleep to at night ... no offense intended to Jay or Conan. But after a stressful day, a bit of comedy relaxes me. What can I say?
