A Movie and Reading Around the Internet

Leigh and I saw "Night at the Museum" tonight. It was . . . OK. Not great. Cute. Maybe it was just me, but I give it 2 out of 5 stars.

I had a more productive time reading this touching story about a fallen soldier's 200 page journal to his young son and seeing 13 photographs that changed the world. Here's one:

As era-defining photographs go, "Migrant Mother" pretty much takes the cake. For many, Florence Owens Thompson is the face of the Great Depression, thanks to legendary shutterbug Dorothea Lange. Lange captured the image while visiting a dusty California pea-pickers’ camp in February 1936, and in doing so, captured the resilience of a proud nation facing desperate times.

(that was from a quote in the article)
I don't know if you know about Digg.com but it is taking me to some wonderful stories.

Saw Robert and Katie at the Vestavia Starbucks . . . it was good to see you guys again. Looking forward to Thursday! (and Friday)
