Photos: Christmas Tree Ornaments 2017

 This is our one ornament from last year, Daisy just had to have a Coca-Cola bear. The rest we picked up for almost nothing after Christmas last year.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017 Film) Review

Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite super-heroes of all time. I don't think I've been the only one as there has been now six major movies (Plus Captain America: Civil War) and more cartoons and video games than I can remember on the famous web-slinger. Except maybe Batman, I don't think any other superhero got as much solo treatment. Due to Marvel having bad troubles during the turn of the millennium, their film rights to many films went to several different companies. When Disney took over Marvel, even though they had the rights to the characters in almost everything, Fox had X-Men and Fantastic Four, and Sony had Spider-Man, which made cross-over films extremely unlikely. Luckily Sony managed to make a deal with Disney, and Spider-Man was able to join the MCU. Now we have a major movie with Spider-Man in the MCU, instead of just cameos in Avengers films.

Fact of the Day: Lady Randolph Churchill

Winston Churchill's mother Lady Randolph Churchill (Jennie Spencer-Churchill) wasn't exactly a devoted wife to his father. She is believed to have had several affairs while married including to the married Prince of Wales, who became the future King Edward VII.

Photo: Recent Snow Before Christmas Even Starts

 We don't usually get snow, but we got some for about a twenty four hour period not long ago. Our cars got a good bit of it, but I was easily able to get it off with an ice scraper. Didn't even need to use ice melt as the snow didn't freeze up.

Question: Do You Wear Shoes in the House?

If I'm in my pajamas, I obviously won't have them on. But if I'm wearing jeans, I'll have my tennis shoes on. My in-laws are like a traditional Asian family, you wear shoes in the house on purpose, you might get something thrown at you.
