This weekend in Parade there was an article that mentioned the following:
Scientists believe that lightning-bug numbers are declining worldwide. As part of the volunteer Firefly Watch of Boston’s Museum of Science, you can assist researchers by collecting data. Just spend 10 minutes a week to count evening activity in a yard or field. Sign up at mos.org/fireflywatch.
This makes me sad. I remember when I was a little girl going out to catch fireflies. I grew up in the country so they were abundant. I used to catch them in empty tomato sauce jars – (after I’d carefully poked holes in the lid of course.) I’d like to think that future generations would have the opportunity to catch their lucky fireflies as well, but with less to catch it looks like many will miss out.
Did you catch fireflies as a child?
What kind of emotions do you feel when you think back to doing it?
Did you think it was lucky to catch one?
It has been confirmed that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (she got married again, I didn’t know that until I started writing this!!) will be reprising her role as Brenda Barrett on General Hospital on August 11, 2010. I am ecstatic! She originated the role in 1992. She left the show in 1998. (She briefly returned in 2000 and had another short stint from 2002-2003) This time she’s supposed to stick around for a while, but I haven’t read anywhere anything about the terms of her contract to know how long. (If any of you have, please comment and let me know!)
In honor of Brenda coming back SOAPnet will be having The Best of Brenda and Sonny starting at 3PM on August 15th. Also if you click the SOAPnet link it will bring you to a page that has 25 Classic Brenda Moments.
So who do you think Brenda will end up with on the show? Who do you want her to end up with?Sonny? Jax? Jason? Johnny? Nicholas? Dante? Matt? Steven? Max? Lucky? Coleman? Vote in the polls below. Please vote once for each question. We’ll discuss the results prior to her initial air date of August 11th.
The Weekly Movie: We went to a pre-screened of the movie Cyrus. It had it’s funny moments for sure, but I think they could have done more with the story to make it more interesting or humorous. Not awesome but not bad either.
We also watched The Spy Next Door. I always like Jackie Chan movies
