Best movies of the 1990’s

After the booming 80’s came the 1990’s, and more great movies, and here they are….. 1) Star Wars: Episode1: The Phantom Menace (1999)…. just when you thought Star Wars was done with the original 3 movies, back it came with this, the first of the Prequel trilogy. 2) Star Trek: First Contact (1996)… The 8th(?) of the original 10 `proper` Star Trek movies, and worth it just for the soundtrack alone. 3) Braveheart (1995)… stars Mel Gibson as Scottish hero William Wallace, though it is rather long at 2hrs 58minutes. 4) Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995)… the 3rd and my favourite of the Die Hard movies. 5) Backdraft (1991)….

Regional Flavours

It is often said that girl’s thingies might smell of fish & taste of chicken, but what if they were regional flavoured? If you chowed down on a Geordie Lass, would it taste of Newcastle Brown Ale? If you chowed down on a girl from Norfolk, would it taste of Colman’s English Mustard? Or would one from Boston (MA) in the USA taste of Clam Chowder? Got any ideas for more possible flavours? Stick ’em in the box (the comments box, that is)……….
