Florida is hot. This time of year feels like hell on earth. I'm surprised people want to come here on vacation. If you go to the parks, you are waiting in long lines in 100+ weather. I'd rather go somewhere cool. I will be in my nice, air conditioned office.

Just finished watching All The Money In the World. I can see why it was not a big hit. A bunch of rich people with rich people's problems. You really don't feel sorry for any of them. I think I felt more for one of the kidnappers than any one else. Getty reminds me a lot of Trump. He even had a charity so that he could make more money. Sounds like Trump. I think he'd do the same if one of his kids got kidnapped.

I've got my ticket for Sicario 2. I can't wait to see this movie. The first one was great. Now we get another chapter in this story. Stay tuned. I'll let you know what I thought about it. I also plan to see The First Purge and Ant Man and Wasp within the next week. Busy movie schedule.

I went to see Jurassic this weekend. If you liked the first one, go see the second one. I'm a big fan of Chris Pratt's. He makes these movies fun. If you are looking for something other than Dinosaurs escaping and wreaking havoc, this it not the movie for you or critics. They have been savaging this movie. Why? Because it's the same formula that has been done. I would argue it is not, but I am not a critic. Be careful. The next art film to come out, that will take multiple viewings to understand, will get a 4 to 5 star review. People who follow critics will do their lemming thing and pay for that movie. If they make it through the movie, they will claim to like it because they don't want to admit they wasted $15 on a boring, hard to understand movie.

I made jelly yesterday. First time. This was a special jelly. It required cayenne peppers. I had to wear gloves to handle them. At first, it smelled interesting. Then, the heat hit my nose. On top of all that, I touched somewhere the peppers had been. I was not wearing a glove. My hand burned for the rest of the night. I think it turned out. I know it's solid. Now, I need a test subject.

Going to see Jurassic World today. Bringing my daughter and her friends. Found some free tickets. We liked the first one. The critics are tearing it apart. What can you do with a movie about dinosaurs escaping and terrorizing people. As long as it is entertaining.

I watched the Raid 2 again. If not have not seen the Raid movies, you are missing a very special series. Hopefully, it will be a trilogy, but the director is taking a break. I would say these movies are like the Godfather movies. 1 & 2 that is. It is well worth your time. I watched it with subtitles. I think if you find the DVD, it may be dubbed in English. The fighting in these movies is exceptional. I only hope the American remake does not tarnish the memory of these films.

Going to see Jurassic World 2 this weekend. Already have tickets. I'm hoping for a good film. I really liked the first one. I like the director on this one. Check out The Orphanage, if you have not seen it. A Monster Calls was good, also.

Yesterday, I used cucumbers from my garden to make pickles. I cut up a big bowl of cut cucumbers. When I looked at it and the vinegar, I wondered if I hand enough liquid. It was enough. After bathing the jars, I set them on the counter. I let them cool. Then, I had to check the lids. If I pushed and it popped back up, the process did not take. It was perfect. Today, I might do jam/jelly.

Incredible's 2 comes out this weekend. I figure it's a great Father's Day movie for myself. My teenager disagrees. I'm trying to convince her it will be worth it. If you want a fun Pixar/Disney movie to go see, check it out. I believe it will be worth my time and money.

Disney was so close to getting some of Marvel's property back. Now, Comcast has offered 65 Billion to buy Fox. I hope Disney comes back with a better offer. I'd like to see the X-Men join the Avengers. I'd also like to see a good Fantastic Four.

Yesterday was a great day. It was hot. There were lots of people. Some of them really need to cover up. I had a shirt on. I'm losing weight, so my stomach is not as obscene as it once was. Half of the people I saw are headed toward morbidly obese. I guess they either ignore their doctors or don't go see them. The main thing for me was having a fun day with my daughter's. The rest I tried to keep to myself.

Today, I'm taking the girls to a water park. The older girls. We are going open to close. We also have an all day eating pass. We'll have to use lots of suntan lotion. We are not using their parking lot. They are charging $20. They also say they are not responsible for your car. I feel that if I am paying that much to park, then they should be responsible.

I thought Kelly Marie Tran was a great addition to Star Wars. I had hoped my daughters might see someone they could follow. One daughter does not want to see a talking bear and the other is just a teen. I read that she deleted her posts from Instagram. That is a real shame. She was so excited to share the adventure she was on with her fans. Now some idiots have harassed her into shutting down her posts. That is a real shame for the girls that follow and look up to her. Why? Because some jerks who probably still live with their parents at 40 don't like her in Star Wars? I wish she would go Jay and Silent Bob on them. If you don't know what I mean, see Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. I hope she comes back and ignores the traffic. In this day and age, you have to. Trump has given people a licence to be rude assholes.

Sunday was a busy day. I worked in the garden and did other things. It was hot. I really don't see how people can be farmers. I took a test in High School that said I should be a farmer. I like growing things, but I would give up pretty easily. I'm surprised that I have lasted this long. I have some herbs and cucumbers to show for it. I actually made pickles yesterday. Today, I get to see if they came out.

Go see Solo this week end. It's a fun summer movie. Now that summer has officially started, it's time to see a great popcorn movie. I want more Solo movies. If it does not make more money, we may not see more of them. Give Disney a reason to do another.
