Review – The Greatest Showman

Earlier this year, I went with my sister and brother-in-law to take my nieces to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus as it made its final rounds throughout America.  A longstanding tradition dating back to the year 1919 (formally, but initiated long before that in the mid-1800s), much had changed for the...

2. Dirty Grandpa

The second most surprising thing about "Dirty Grandpa" was that I was seeing it, at all, tonight, as this wasn't my original intention. The very most surprising thing about "Dirty Grandpa" was how much I actually enjoyed it. My original plan for this weekend was to go out of town to visit my nieces, tomorrow (Friday),...
