I received the following from my friend Age and felt I had to share it with you:

Once in a while you get one you just wish to share with everyone……this is one of them.  Very short.  Worth the watch.

This summer, Philips and director/producer Ridley Scott launched  a global filmmaking competition dubbed “Tell It Your Way” following its Cannes Lions award-winning short-film project “Parallel Lines.”

The entrants were given freedom of expression and could take up any theme they wanted.  There were two strict rules—
The dialogue could be precisely six-lines (as it was in the ‘Parallel Lines’ films), and entries could not exceed three minutes.

Chatting With Miriyummy: Leora Wenger

Meet Leora Wenger.  I started reading her blog about a year ago, mainly because some of my favorite bloggers were mentioning her blog, Here in the HP, and I was curious.  And it’s a bit embarrassing to say (but when did I ever let that stop me), but originally, I thought her blog had something to do with Hewlett-Packard.  I never really thought I was that much of a computer geek, but when you say HP, that’s the first thing that comes to mind.  Considering that I think I’m such a foodie, I’m adding insult to self-injury by admitting that I didn’t immediately think of HP Sauce either.  What I will proudly admit to is that I’m a native Nu Yawker, and excluding the two times I’ve been to Newark Airport, I’ve only been to New Jersey twice in my life, so the connection with Highland Park never popped into my head.  But thanks to Leora and her glorious photography, I’m starting to learn that New Jersey is not all turnpikes, toxic chemical processing plants and strip malls.  You can get quite an education reading Leora’s blog, and not just about New Jersey…
