I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: The Film Buff's Bucket List and Games: Hit List

We may have been given complimentary copies of any books and/or other products mentioned below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: The Film Buff's Bucket List

Today we are talking about The Film Buff's Bucket List by Chris Stuckmann. Stuckmann is a filmmaker, film critic, and YouTuber. In his book, he recommends 50 movies made in the 2000s that he alleges you won't want to miss. However, how valuable the book may be to you depends a lot on what types of films you like. If you don't like the same types of movies as Mr. Stuckmann, this book won't be all that helpful to you.  The book is heavy on genres like action movies and thrillers so if you particularly like these genres, you will probably enjoy the book. However, a lot of the movies mentioned are so popular anyway that you most likely will have already seen them although there are some movies mentioned that are not as well-known, and which you may not have seen.  On the other hand, if you are more into other genres like comedies, musicals or romances, you will find little or no recommendations regarding these types of movies in the book. Thus, this is a great book for specific movie fans but not for all movie fans.

Games: Hit List

Today we are recommending Hit List. This is fast-paced and fun game. It can be played by two or more players. You are given a clue and you have to guess the 6 answers to the clue written on a game card. The more players in the game, the longer the game takes although it never feels that long. 

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
