  1. Jeff,

    Thank you for putting up all the links about The Enchantress of Florence. I enjoy reading reviews of things after I’ve either read the book or watched the movie to compare their reactions and responses.

    You also included a link about WALL-E. That is a fabulous movie. My favorite so far of all the Pixar films and what is so amazing is that the first part of the movie there is little dialogue, but the audience has no difficulty following the story.

    A friend of mine brought her three year old triplets (!) to see it and their eyes were glued to the screen.

    I am amazed to discover that there is beginning to be a back-lash by some conservatives regarding this movie. I dunno. Does that by default mean that they are for littering and mass consumption of consumer goods?

    It’s a wonderful story, with an unlikely hero and it will appeal to audiences of all ages.

    You don’t need to rent a kid to go see it.
