Road Trip-League of Our Own Bus-Photos

Eric and I decided to take a little road trip earlier this week. We visited Holland, Indiana. Holland is a small town west of Huntingburg and home of the Holland Dairy/Prairie Farms dairy foods. Although not a lot there, they do have a very nice little park with a walking trail along the lake, a large globe and purple people eater. 😉 But the main draw for us is the windmill. We hadn’t been there since Eric was about 5 years old so it was nice to see it again. In Huntingburg we spotted the Rockford Peaches bus from the movie A League of Our Own and decided to snap a few photos. Some day soon I’ll have to go back and visit the ball park where parts of the movie were filmed. Haven’t been there for years.

The New Jane Eyre – Blah

I’ve read a lot of positive reviews on the new Jane Eyre. But I found it very blah-blah-blah. It was like reading a book blurb of Jane Eyre with spoilers. Too condensed. Although Mia Wasikowska’s characterization of Jane was pretty spot on, she had little script to work with. Where was all the suspense? The romance? And the portrayal of the mad wife in the attic–just plain boring.
