The Weekend that was...

Had a great weekend - very busy - so busy that I didn't get around to making a guitar video - sorry!   Will try again soon!

Some of you are interested to know how Mrs RC is getting on with her Kindle.

She loves it.  She took it home, charged it up and then Number One Son came home from school and sorted out the fiddly stuff for her.  After a browse of what was there they bought a book and had a good read.

Mrs RC's main worry was that it would be like reading a PC monitor, ie not good if you like to read a book at a single sitting!  This is not a problem with the Kindle, long reading sessions have not been any more eye straining than reading a normal book.  She also likes that fact that although it is actually a really hi-tech gadget, it does not feel like one and is really easy to use, the way things like this should me IMO.

Saturday was a blast - we went out for dinner and had a great meal, eating far too much but hey, you have to do it sometimes don't you?

Then we went home and watched Black Sheep - a horror-comedy about man-eating sheep which was really funny, IMO.  There was a lot of blood and guts in it, but it was COMEDY blood and guts if you know what I mean.  Well worth a watch if you are in the mood for something like that.

It looks absolutely hilarious. Don't know why it wasn't nominated for an Academy Award.

Thanks for sharing abt Mrs. RC's Kindle... I have been debating whether to get a Kindle or a BN Nook Color. Whatever I get needs to be able to download in Germany. I'll keep you posted:)

I've actually been wanting to see that movie. It's regularly on a cable movie channel I get but I never know it's on until halfway through. Not the kind of movie you can see in parts, right?

Glad to know Mrs RC is getting lots of enjoyment out the Kindle. Especially liked the part about no more eye strain than reading a regular book.

The whole premise of man-eating sheep is totally hilarious! "The Violence of the Lambs!" How funny! Too bad the violence is a little too graffic for my likes, but what a parody. Somebody has a quirky sense of humor.
