The Broken Egg – Breakfast is Back

39286333_2117687735224475_789234634738106368_nBreakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. Okay, maybe diner too if it’s something like Cathryn’s Prime Rib or Lamb Chops. Honestly though, I could eat bacon and eggs every day. According to the Keto Diet that’s not a bad thing.

Nero’s Steak House

1491341927522What ever happened to all the good steak house restaurants? Windsor used to have at least a half dozen top notch places. Did the next generation stop eating steak or do they avoid upscale eateries? Even the Outback Steakhouse couldn’t survive in Windsor.

Not to worry folks. In case you haven’t heard, Nero’s Steak House in Casino Windsor is all things a good beef baron should be, and more. They specialize in prime cuts of meat, but also offer seafood and a full menu.

Mission Impossible – Fallout

Mission_Impossible_Fallout_poster_4What can I say, I’ve been a fan of Mission Impossible since Tom Cruise was kindergarten. And as much as times and television and movies have changed over the years, I love how the producers have kept the same theme and music and gimmicks. Yes, one CIA character in the new movie even refers to the Halloween masks that the IMF uses to pull off their impossible missions.

The Equalizer 2

263871R1Who doesn’t like Denzel Washington? I can think of one or two of his movies I didn’t like, but can’t think of one that I didn’t like him in. Many of us complain about sequels, like I just did with Jurassic World, but it’s hard not to cheer for vigilantes like Denzel’s Equalizer character.

As The Equalizer he has no problem taking on the roll of action hero. Cathryn doesn’t usually go for the shoot-em-up flicks, but she wanted to see this one and was glad she did. It was no surprise to me that they made a sequel to the first movie since they teased us with the option at the end.

Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom

263871R1I thought this was the fourth installment from the Flintstones age, so perhaps I missed a sequel to one of the other sequels, but this is number five. I believe I was confused because they all look the same – man messes with dinosaur DNA, good doctors play with their new creations, bad dinosaurs eat a few of the less important characters and finally the hunter villain.

So why bother going to see such a yawner? Cathryn likes the series and it is one of those movies that’s fun to see on the big screen. I think we all have to admit it’s amazing what they can do with computer generated special effects these days. The movie is good family entertainment, but I need a different plot to keep my interest.

I don’t have much more to say about the movie. If you’re a fan than I’m sure you’ll enjoy the film. If you’re looking for something different than don’t waste your time. Perhaps you can wait for number six, yes they tease you in the end, the next installment will no doubt be bad dinosaurs terrorizing a city like the old Godzilla movies.

Cathryn gave this flick a 7 and I a 6 out of 10.

The People We Meet

IMG_0398When Cathryn and I travel it’s not all about the journey or the destination, or even the food and drink. Granted, those are all good reasons as to why we travel, but we also love to meet new people and share in their culture. People are one of the reasons you’ll see us perched on stools at the bar instead of sitting at a table by ourselves.

It’s not that we don’t enjoy each other’s company, we do, and we travel well together. Spending days or weeks together 24/7 can be trying for any couple or even close friends. Consider yourself lucky if you can get along with your travel partner.
