Movie drought.............

Who has had time to do any movie going in the past few weeks, with Christmas and end of year events taking much of my diary time?  However, I look forward to some movies - in the next week there are quite a few that I wish to see.  Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady starts on Boxing Day, 

and I will be among the crowd I think hoping to get a seat.

The other movie I am keen to see is War Horse.

War Horse Puppets

The movie War Horse is due to open in Brisbane and I look forward to seeing the movie. Meanwhile I found a show on the ABC this afternoon about puppets used to show the story.  Found this video, where the puppets went to the Sandown Races.

You can't burn an e-book.

I read these words somewhere on the internet and it made me smile.  Once certainly can burn a 'real' book, and one can burn an e-book reader.  (I wonder if any e-book reader has been destroyed by fire?)  I guess one can destroy an e-book if the only copy is languishing on someone's computer and fire takes it away?  However, you'd want to hope that any manuscript is safely backed up somewhere?  Mmmm.  Reminds me - I must do this with some of mine.
