Eighties Photo Contest by Rollerkaty. As everyone knows, I love a participation post. This one has nothing at all to do with my blog ... it just looks really fun. Check it out and join the party. You simply send in photos from the 80's!!
"Vote for Senator Speedcat Speedy Hollydale" is a post by Christine Bean. I thought it showed some creative juice. This multi-blog author is cooking it up in the blogosphere, and shows a lot of talent. If you like it there, many other URLs await from Christine.
"How Would I Know You? Describe Yourself To A Fellow blogger Sent To Pick You Up At The Airport Sight Unseen" is another post that has participation in mind. Ann Clemmons is one of the most talented writers in town, and has a blog that welcomes you. Stop in on Tuesdays!! (or any day)
Help Fight Modern Day Slave Labor is informational and eye-opening. What do I like best about Bobby Revell? You never need to wonder what he is thinking ... he will tell you! I have found some of the best discussions ever inside his comment boards. Looking for some wild fiction writing? You will find it there too. Helping all new bloggers, Revellian dot Com is a tower of power.
Meleah's post, Happy 60th Birthday To My Mom has got to be the best tributes I have read in a long time. The words are more than just that, they say multitudes. Momma Mia! .... that's just incredible!!!! Family is a good thing.
Nude Maids Real Housecleaning Services by the Moneypenny Undercover Times has the information that we all need to protect ourselves, and a bus to Californ I A with precious cargo!!! Black socks white socks; socks socks socks.

So my friend Speedcat saw on a previous post of mine that I planned on seeing the new Indiana Jones movie and asked me to do a review of the movie. I saw it earlier today along with my handsome hubby, Jeremy, and our good friend Bobbi. So how was it? Well, let's start with the good.....
It was great seeing Indiana Jones again! The hat....the whip.....the jacket....the one-liners....It was so good just seeing him again. Frankly, that was probably the best part of the movie. As my friend Bobbi put it, it was like seeing an old friend again. There was lots of action. Pretty much the whole movie was full of action, actually. There weren't any slow parts, really. The effects were really good. And there were some fabulous stunts in the movie, too. Harrison Ford looked good, although he is definitely looking old. He looked like he was in pretty good shape for a guy his age, though.
All of that said, here is the less than good part.....Very predictable. The storyline was lacking, especially in certain parts of the movie. I actually had to remind myself a couple of times about "suspension of disbelief". In other words, I had a really hard time buying into some of things that occurred in the the movie. Remember, this is a movie for entertainment purposes only. It doesn't have to be believable, right? You may have to remind yourself of this during the movie. I haven't had this particular problem with any of the other Indiana Jones movies. But for some reason, it was a problem in this one. The villain in this movie, played by Cate Blanchett, wasn't the the best. But I don't blame that on Cate Blanchett (she is a good actress). Once again, I blame that on storyline.
All of that being said.....Did I enjoy the movie? Yes, I did! Am I glad that I went to see it? Yes, I am. Did I enjoy the movie? Yes, I did. Would I recommend it to someone else? Not necessarily. Go see it only if you can keep in mind (and live with) all of the negatives that I said above. Would I see this movie knowing everything above? Yes, I probably would.....I would for a couple of reasons. First, because I am awfully stubborn. Second, because it is Indiana Jones, after all. And it has been a long time since I have seen my old friend on the big screen.

Great news for the Hollydale golfer, the Bool e` Vard Minigolf Park is now open! You can play for 25 E cards, or 5 dollars. Before heading out for 18 holes, all groups must sign an insurance waiver. Featured here is the "Firestorm Monkeyman" hole #12. A birdie on this hole will be rare and coveted.
Katie Couric has not had the audience that was hoped for, and has had cosmetic surgery to enhance the viewers experience on the Nightly News. I think she is lookin` HOT ... but I'm not fond of the new Letterman "Gap Toothed" smile. Sure, it works for Dave, but Couric could never be Paul Schaffer's partner. I vote 3 1/2 stars.
Drowsey Monkey is having a birthday party!! As one of my favorite bloggers, I wish her the best day ever. She is not a hugger, but sometimes I hug her anyway ... like today!! Stop over, have some cake, and say hello.

After seeing the success of the "Vote for your favourite Art Work" contest held at "Laketrees", I decided to create my own gallery .... so to speak. Here, I will add more computer generated works (for your viewing enjoyment) and also except your own creations, past or present. Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your entry. You can also point me to a URL in my comments. I'll go fetch it up and post right here on SpeedyCat's Image Gallery. with a link to you of course!
The first framed piece (right) is available to you, the blogging public for free. That's right, FREE. Place it on your blog, then tell me where to find it. I will list the Gallery participants at the bottom of the post.
Last, but not least, come up with a name for the picture above with the golden trim. By popular vote, this extreme pixel on monitor will assume the best title ... GOOD LUCK!!
