‘Fury” is a good wartime drama that might have been considered great had it come out anywhere in between 1930 and 1998. In the year 2014, however, the film might come off as too familiar to those who have seen classics like “All Quiet on the Western Front,” “Apocalypse Now,” “Platoon,” and “Saving Private Ryan.” That’s not to say “Fury” is too little too late. On the contrary, the film is exceptionally made, wonderfully acted, and effectively portrays the horrors of war. It’s just hard to totally give yourself to a movie when you can tell who’s going to live, who’s going to die, and what’s going to be learned 10 minutes in.
My friend’s daughter just turned 8 and I was recently reminiscing about having attended her baby shower. I arrived at the party, set my purse in a room with everyone else’s and joined the activities. Most of the women in attendance went to my friend’s church.
As a registered Republican one of the biggest things that worries me about Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey is his climbing into political bed with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Why would a guy seek out the support and endorsement form a sheriff who is under federal scrutiny and court ordered regulation, has been shown to be an ineffective sheriff who blew off hundreds of cases involving rapes and child molests, has cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County well over $100 million dollars in misspent jail tax funds, has 30,000 unserved felony arrest warrants in his files, has cost us tens of millions of dollars related to lawsuits stemming from prisoners being abused and killed in his jail and who spent the last decade alienating Hispanics on both sides of the border?
You can’t help but do a double-take when you see Kona, an exceptionally good-looking young man. This 2-year-old Maine Coon Mix makes quite the striking picture with his dark, striped coat, bushy tail, and deep orange eyes. Lucky for everyone, Kona enjoys having his beautiful coat brushed on a regular basis. He also enjoys petting, especially if head and chin rubs are part of the overall petting experience. When you’re petting him, Kona gets an expression on his face that makes it look like he is smiling. Petting also invokes soft, gentle purrs from Kona. He is quite the explorer. He loves to seek out high places to get a better view of all there is to explore. Kona likes to spend playtime batting at feathers or chasing balls with bells in them. As Kona can be somewhat chatty and is happy to spend time lounging around or playing with other friendly kitties. He is also happy to finish off any leftover food that his kitty friends leave behind in their dishes. And if another kitty hisses at him, cool as a cucumber Kona casually strolls on by as if nothing happened.
Beasley, a 1-year-old Chihuahua short coat mix, is a happy-go-lucky guy looking for his forever home. His favorite thing is cuddling up with people. Beasley does well with some other dogs and maybe even cats.
