Old Fashioned DVD Review

Hey neighbors!

How many of you have seen the movie based on the Rene Gutteridge book of the same title?  It was just released on DVD June 16th.  The movie is about a young man, Clay Walsh who has changed since his wild college days.  He now has some strong ideas regarding dating and romance.  He now owns an antique shop and has an upstairs apartment for rent.  Enter Amber Hewson.  She has a much different outlook on life than Clay.  The two although drawn to each other have many issues to work through.  Amber has trouble believing the rules Clay has set down for romance and love.  DVD released June 16th and is rated PG-13.  (Run Time is 115 minutes)

I was a little disappointed in the fact that his closest friends seem to mock him and seem very worldly.  He is seen in a few situations I would not expect him tone found in.  Also I do not recommend this even for teenagers, because of the content discussed at times.

I do appreciate the stands he takes regarding how to treat a woman, no kissing, or even being alone in a room alone with a female, but once again the movie makes him seem the strange or weird person who needs to change.

I have not heard of this movie until now. It does sound interesting. I feel as you do about him cast as the kinda weird one because of his values/beliefs. I wish it were more of him cast as a leader figure that others liked and respected because of or even though he does feel the way he does. Thanks for the review.

This is the first time I've heard of this movie. By the name of the movie, "Old Fashioned" that represents the views of one will be old-fashioned in one way or another. However, in today's society, old-fashioned would put you in the weird or outcast category.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
