Horses – Priceless Inspiration

Horses are art in motion. When still they are the calm and peace of the world. When they run, it’s with invisible wings. When they trot, it’s as if each step springs them into heaven. Few things in nature compare to the beauty of the horse.   How many a child has felt the call of the wild horse who responds only to them? How many feel they could win any kind of battle when astride a horse? How many dream of the moment that they and the horse become one with the same zeal as many dream of a championship? Many, I know. They inspire and empower us. And most of all they instruct us: listen, watch, become one… Read more

Horses & Veterans of War

I’ll admit, I don’t know too many veterans. My Grandfather was one, a WWII vet, but he didn’t really talk about it. We only realized from a letter from one of his friends to my grandfather after his death that he had been a real hero. My world has always been all about horses. I live in a country were I can live free and hang out with horses and my gender and religion doesn’t affect that a bit. You can’t say that of everywhere. You can say though, that our veterans, for better or worse, are ambassadors to the world. Sometimes I imagine all they rest of the world knows us by is Hollywood and that is a scary… Read more

Beware the Fox: an old movie with an ageless warning.

It is amazing how somethings never change. Tales of cunning, greed and even politics somehow seem as ageless of tales of heroism. This is one I’ve found, which has the virtue of being miraculously well done in spite of it’s age. Before CGI or modern film techniques, The Tale of the Fox look many years to create. It’s been uploaded in 6 parts onto Youtube, complete with subtitles as it’s originally in French. Most of it, you can figure out without any words at all. The fox is a con artist and all suffer under his tricks. What’s more, they suffer because he knows their weaknesses and plays off them. The lion is King (of course) and must figure out… Read more

White Collar only has 6 Episodes to Wrap up…Unless Fans Convince Them.

The news that White Collar was to have a Season 6 was not the joyous relief fans hoped for. Instead it was met with outrage as USA networks idea of a wrap up was only 6 episodes. The fact is Fox network, who owns it, wanted a full season. But USA only wanted a mini series, even though all their other shows had received proper full seasons to tie up the series. The claim is that it’s expensive to shoot. But Fox was willing to cover some of that cost, and others of its series had also filmed in expensive locales. It’s also hinted that USA wanted to fill up with shows from NBC, their parent company. Now the question… Read more

Save White Collar – Champion TV Should Never End in a Cliffhanger

There are few things more maddening than to love a TV show and have it cut off abruptly. Still more infuriating is when it’s a show with great reviews, strong fan base and a major cliffhanger ending for the season. Such is the case with White Collar. What it’s About: For those not in the know: White Collar is about an FBI agent who takes on a Art Forger/Con Man as a partner on parole, to take down the bad guys. (The bad guys usually being far worse than our favorite con man.) Their friendship is heartwarming and awkward. Their teamwork amazing. Sometimes they conflict and don’t tell each other things, but in the end they respect each other. Besides… Read more
