Film Locations Travel Destination

I took a film history class while in college, mostly to fulfill the electives portion of my degree program.  The course outline was to introduce the students to film making from the very beginning – from the Lumiere brothers short films made in Paris in 1895 onward.  On the first day of class, the professor gave us a one question quiz  – why do we go see films?

Is there anyone you (don’t) know who isn’t fascinated by mermaids?     Here’s why room service in a hotel room is not as great as you might think.  One of the most nostalgically beautiful dress I have seen in a while, just in case you are able to pull of the look this summer for a special occasion. If I were asked where I would rather be at the moment, I would have to say –  it would be right here. I am curious about your take on – if a new member of the royal family …

Decor: Floating House Tour

I live near the water in San Francisco, but have always wondered what it’s like to live on the water. I think this interest was sparked by the film Sleepless in Seattle, where Tom Hanks’s character lived in a boathouse on the water with his son. Since then I’ve always imagined, if not a lifetime, but perhaps a few months living in – say – like this wonderful floating house in Seattle. Wine-cellar included of course:
