Man-Candy Monday

Here is a special St. Patricks Day Man-Candy Monday edition. I just noticed that the Orem Public Library will be showing a special screening tonight of Darby O'Gill and the Little People. I don't remember much about the movie (I'm sure it is a bit cheesy--but I like cheese) but that is not what is really important here. The important part of the movie that I would like to draw your attention to is its leading actor: Mr. Sean Connery (or is he a Sir?) in his prime. Now to most of us Connery will go down in history as one of the most stunning men to grace the silver screen. Most of us, though, have only seen him with his lovely silver/white hair. And really most of us are fine about thinking about this silver haired Sean as being in his prime. But like so many of us, he was young once and didn't have silver hair. In fact his hair was a rather nice black color. So make sure you check out this movie to get a glimpse of Connery's gorgeous self back when his hair was jet black. For those of you who can't make to Orem, may I present to you a bit of man-candy:

Check out the movie for a look at him without the goofy smile!

Um . . . there is a really good musical with Gene Kelly set in Ireland, but I can't remember the name. Starts with a B. You would probably like it, if I can just remember the name . . .

Have you read the Sevenwaters Trilogy? They are defnintely fantasy, but not too wierd and have all this cool loosely-based-on-Celtic tradition history.

Nemesis--I had forgotten that he sings.

STM--I think you are thinking of Brigadoon but it is actually set in Scotland.

I am almost ready for a new set of books to start reading so I'm thinking the Sevenwaters Trilogy will be it. thanks
