The Penning Board 2013-11

The Penning Board
Items of the Week
MovieLeap Year (2010) – Amy Adams, Matthew Goode and John Lithgow
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I had to choose a bit o’ the Irish! This movie is just “grand” (if you’ve seen it you understand the quote).

This romantic comedy is cute, at times funny and serious, with tons of gorgeous footage of lovely Ireland. Honestly, you should watch it just for the scenery.
You’ll want to book a ticket to the Land o’ the Leprechauns stat.  

Interesting News: Tim Allen, Jonathan Taylor Thomas unite on “Last Man Standing”

Oh, how I loved JTT! All through elementary and junior high, he was the reason I bought scores of Tiger Beat and BOP magazines to find his pictures and pin them on my bedroom wall.
This week’s news may not be ground breaking or life-saving, but it’s a blast from the past for me that I thought I’d share. J  It’s good to know “Randy Taylor” is back on the small screen!
So it’s time to fess up…

Who was your celebrity crush when you were growing up? Please share. I think it’ll be fun!

Book: Highland Legacy by Tracey Bateman, Tamela Hancock Murray, Pamela Griffin and Jill Stengl
I love these four stories-in-one books. They’re so fun! This one is particular is a favorite of mine. I love the connection between the four stories about four woman of different generations with ties to Scotland. Enjoyed it.

Raised in the U.S. foster care system, Audrey MacMurray is driven to learn the truth of who she is and where she came from.

Her search leads to her ancestral home, the romantic Kennerith Castle in Scotland, and the stories of women - her ancestors - who defied the conventions of the day.

These four unique "novels within a novel" provide a rich, multi-generational story of God's love.
Bible Verse: "The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake." - Psalm 23:1-3 (NIV)

Quote: “The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G. K. Chesterton
Song: Danny Boy by Celtic Woman
I had to feature this classic song. It’s definitely one that brings Ireland to my mind when I hear it, especially sung so beautifully by Celtic Woman.

Listen to it here.
