Little Women Releases 9/28

Hey neighbors!!

I was given the opportunity to view of screener of the new movie, Little Women that is being released in theaters on 9/28.  I honestly came away with mixed emotions.  I grew up on Little Women and other books of like manner.  I made sure to have those books in my home library for my children as they grew up.  Yes, I am giving away my age.  My daughters all loved the books and liked to re-enact the scenes from the book.  So, what did I think of the new movie?

First off, if you are expecting anything like the book, realize that this is a modern view.  The movie does loosely follow some of the book, and you will see modern day versions of some of your favorite scenes.  I would not take younger children to see it unless you have previewed it and deemed it acceptable, because of some of the dance scenes, drinking, and one scene where a young man forcefully kisses Meg and starts to go a little further.

The movie is slightly disjointed as you go back and forth between present day and memories of growing up.  Also, although you see the book Pilgrim's Progress sporadically in the movie, I believe some of the references to Pilgrim's Progress will get completely overlooked due to the vague allusions to the book.

Now, as I said I have mixed emotions because other than those areas, I did enjoy the movie.  I was impressed by the young man, Lucas Grabeel, who portrayed Laurie.  He clearly understood how to depict the caring young man that Laurie was in the book and as a dear friend of the sisters.

By the end of the movie, you are definitely caught up in the struggles and cares of the March family.  Yes, I even shed a tear or two at the more emotional scenes, so you might want to bring tissues.  So, my final thoughts on the new Little Women is to see it expecting something different.  If you are as caught up with the book as I am, you will probably come away with mixed feelings regarding the movie itself.  Overall it was an enjoyable movie.  It is rated PG-13.  You can view the trailer below.



Thank you for stopping by today!! See you again soon.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
