About Me

I was raised in South Florida back in the years when it was a peaceful and wonderfully safe place to live. We lived a mile from the beach and could ride our bikes over the intercoastal bridge right to the best beach around. All my years of growing up I was a competitive swimmer and belonged to AAU. I granduated from Florida State University with a BS degree in nursing. I am recently retired but I'm thinking of going back to work to support my hobbies.

The King's Speech

Today's post is to give a "plug" to a movie I went to yesterday - "The King's Speech" starring Colin Firth of "Bridget Jones' Diary" and "Mama Mia" fame.  He is an absolutely wonderful actor, and has been nominated for an academy award for this film.  In fact the movie has 12 Academy Award nominations in all!  I was blown away at how good he is in this film, playing Queen Elizabeth II's father, King George VI, who inherited the throne when his brother abdicated to marry the twice divorced American commoner Wallis Simpson - quite the scandal at the time.  The plot is simple.  This man stutters (or "bloody well stammers") as he calls it, and his wife (the recently deceased Queen Mum, Elizabeth's mother) hires a very unusual man, played by Geoffrey Rush, to be his speech therapist.  It is the relationship between these two men that is the story, and it couldn't be better!  I learned quite a bit about the royal family in the early years, and also about a king about whom very little is written.  You must go see it!  That's all I'm going to say about that.
