Embark on a New Cosmic Adventure When Thor: Love and Thunder Arrives
on Digital September 8 and 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™
and DVD September 27
BURBANK, CA (August 25, 2022) – Marvel Studios’ beloved hero returns for a classic Thor adventure. Described as “emotional, exciting, and downright funny as hell” (Ben Kendrick, Screen Rant), Thor: Love and Thunder arrives on Digital September 8 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD September 27. Fans can add the film to their Marvel Studios’ movie collection and access exclusive bonus content including deleted scenes, a gag reel and audio commentary by legendary filmmaker Taika Waititi. Thor: Love and Thunder will also stream on Disney+ September 8.

Film Synopsis
Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder finds the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – one of self-discovery. But his efforts are interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Directed by Taika Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Jojo Rabbit”), from a screenplay by Waititi & Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Thor: Love and Thunder was produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum.

Paws Of Fury The Legend Of Hank

Posted on August 31, 2022 in 2022 Back To School Gift Guide

The Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank was such a great anime movie.  My 11-year-old, son, sat through the entire movie, which doesn’t happen often.  He loved it, said it was fascinating.  We watched with his 25-year-old, sister, and her boyfriend.  They enjoyed it, as well.  It was fun-filled, and packed with lots of family adventure.

The cast consists of:  Michael Cera, Ricky Gervais, Mel Brooks, George Takei, Aasif Mandvi, Gabriel Iglesias, Djimon Hounsou, Michelle Yeoh and Samuel L. Jackson. 

Samuel L. Jackson is so great in this cartoon. I picked his voice out instantaneously.

In this fun-filled family adventure, hard-on-his-luck hound named Hank (Michael Cera) finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain’s (Ricky Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher (Samuel L. Jackson) to train him, our underdog must assume the role of town samurai and team up with the villagers to save the day. The only problem… cats hate dogs!

You will love this movie as much as my family does.  I would bet on that.

Casio fx-9750GIII Scientific Calculator

Posted on August 30, 2022 in 2022 Back To School Gift Guide

The Casio fx-9750GIII scientific calculator is helping my son with his advanced math, this year.  It took a lot of getting used to, but he managed.  He wasn’t used to all those buttons, being his first scientific calculator.  He’s really loving it and uses it for everything he has to calculate.  “It’s not difficult to use, just takes some getting used to,” my 11-year-old said.

The looks are deceiving.  You’ll think it’s difficult to use, but it’s really not.  Looks are truly deceiving.  My daughter, age 25, was able to get to the bottom of how to use the calculator in no time.  She wanted it for her schooling, but her brother needs it, for his advanced class. So, we went and got her an identical one, from Walmart.

This scientific calculator has already been a time saver, and money saver.  The price is great, and Jacob is saving time, now that he knows how to use it.

“With Natural Textbook Display™ and an intuitive icon menu, students will find the fx-9750GIII graphing calculator incredibly easy to use. Feature highlights include graph plotting, probability distribution, vector arithmetic and spreadsheets. The fx-9750GIII is capable of programming in CASIO Basic and MicroPython, and Python files are easily stored and transferred via USB to a computer.”

AAA: School’s Open – Drive Carefully

Posted on August 23, 2022 in 2022 Back To School Gift Guide

Tips & Suggestions for Drivers as Summer Ends, School Begins


As children return to school, AAA East Central has launched its annual School’s Open – Drive Carefully campaign. The campaign aims to encourage parents to talk about the importance of school zone safety with their children and teen drivers. It also advises motorists to take extra caution when traveling through school zones or near school buses.

“School zone speed limits, AAA School Safety Patrollers and crossing guards are in place to save lives,” said Terri Rae Anthony, safety advisor for AAA East Central. “Since children can move quickly and cross the road unexpectedly, it is important to obey speed limits and be ready to stop at a moment’s notice.”

Speed is a crucial factor in protecting the lives of students as they make their way to class. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 20 mph is about two-thirds less likely to be killed as compared to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 30 mph. Moreover, nearly 1-in-5 children 14 and younger who die in traffic crashes are pedestrians.

In addition to slowing down, AAA offers the following advice for motorists to keep children safe as they navigate their way through school zones:

Ditch distractions. Research shows that glancing away from the road for just two seconds doubles the chances of crashing.
Stay alert. Don’t rush into and out of driveways. Expect pedestrians on the sidewalk, especially around schools and in neighborhoods. Mind vehicle blind spots, check for children on the sidewalk, in the driveway, and around the vehicle before slowly backing up.
Brake for buses. It may be tempting to drive around a stopped school bus, but not only is it dangerous – it is against the law.
Watch for bikes. Children on bicycles are often unpredictable, so expect the unexpected. Motorists should slow down and allow at least three feet of passing distance between their vehicle and bicyclists.
Plan ahead. Leave early and build in extra time for congestion. If possible, modify routes to avoid school zones.
Look for AAA School Safety Patrollers. With more than 600,000 AAA School Safety Patrollers at 31,000 schools across the country, patrollers are a sure sign that school zone is approaching.

About the AAA’s School’s Open – Drive Carefully campaign:
The campaign was launched nationally in 1946 to help reduce the number of school-related pedestrian injuries and fatalities. The campaign kicks off each fall and continues throughout the school year to remind motorists to watch out for children as they travel to and from school.

Baketivity is so much fun to do with your Child(ren)

Posted on August 18, 2022 in 2022 Back To School Gift Guide

Baketivity was a hit with us this Summer.  My 11-year-old son had so much fun baking.  He loved that he received a kit each month, and he jumped right in.

The 3 kits we received were:

  • Earth Day Chocolate Chip Cookie
  • Lemonade Cheesecake Cupcakes
  • Dirt Kit with worms

These kits were so fun to make, with my son.  He enjoyed it, and asked me to get another subscription, so I did.  He says he can’t wait to get September’s kit.  Not sure what we will receive yet, but we actually made and ate these things so fast, I didn’t even get pictures.

The kits were enjoyed by our family, and some even helped create the treats.  It was so fun to get dirty with my family, well not really dirty, but getting our hands wet.  It was my son’s first time baking.

The Earth Day Cookie, I baked.  Not before he mixed it all up, and got it ready.  All I did was put it in the oven, and take it out when timer went off.

The Dirt Kit, I baked, again.  Jacob got his hands real dirty on this one, but it was so much fun.  All I did was put in oven, and take out, again when time expired.

Finally, the Lemonade Cheesecake Cupcakes.  He made the cake, from scratch, and it was delightful.  He made the cheesecake, as well. All I did was put in oven, and take out once timer was finished.

These kits are so much fun as a family project, or just for a single child.  He really enjoyed himself. The kits aren’t expensive, and you get almost everything you need, in the box.  Except for like measuring cups and spoons, eggs (stuff like that).

Reading Kingdom has done wonders for us over this Summer!

Posted on August 18, 2022 in 2022 Back To School Gift Guide

Reading Kingdom has helped my third grade to read so much better during the Summer.  It’s targeted for Kindergarten to Third Grade.  She loves it, and has consistently used it over the Summer.  I can’t wait to see her first report card, and see how her grades have improved.

While using Reading Kingdom, she has found so many programs, and loves every program she’s engaged with.  There are many activities, as well.  Your child will love this program too.

You can get a One Month Trial of the program.  Then decide if you would like to continue the lessons.  It’s great for helping to read.  My daughter wasn’t reading to her “potential” according to her teachers last year.  Now, they will be surprised to see how well she is reading.

We love this program!  I love it because it gave my child the confidence that the teachers couldn’t give her last year.  And, she loves it because now she’s reading to her potential.
