Marg says: Always remember water shows the hidden heart and BEWARE The Comb of the Wind!


Now, if you are not sufficiently scared we have provided this video to help you. Enjoy!

My current favoritest thing right now is 1850's dresses. I simply love the styles. Check out these awesome pictures I found from this website. Aren't they marvelous?

I just love it! So there is some eye candy for all the costumers or admirers of very old clothing. =]

love is now the stardust of yesterday..

(turn the sidebar music off before you push play. this is my favorite song.)

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
of paradise where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain

Bleak. Very bleak. - MMMM

Hello my film-fellow-freaks. :) We have found it at last! The trailer you've all been waiting for!
What made you want to see this (awesome) film when you first saw the trailer??
I can't decide weather it makes you want to see it more because it's such a dumb trailer, or make you declare you will "never see it, as long as you live"...? hmm.

as lame as this preview makes this movie look, it really is an AWESOME mini-series! I hope you go and watch it!
and pay attention to the filming and COSTUMES! it's all so pretty!

Have a bleak day. :)

Happy Independence Day!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

We hope you have a wonderful 4th of July and that you remember what our men and women did for us to help keep us a FREE nation. And most of all that you would remember the One who is the ultimate giver of the blessing of freedom... Jesus Christ.
