Saw this and just had to share it.
Make it a great week!
The other night I had the chance to see Mamma Mia! at The Tobin Center.
It’s the show Farewell Tour and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of seeing it at one of my favorite places.
All I can say is WOW! What a show.
I love ABBA, I liked the movie, so I was really looking forward to a good show. And I wasn’t disappointed.
Right from the opening note, it was amazing.
If you don’t know anything about the play, here’s a little snippet of what it’s about.
My favorite songs would be:
I’m going old school on the video.
I’m so glad that I went to see the play.
Now, I’m off to watch the movie on my phone.

“The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved good-bye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of God.”
– President Ronald Reagan
Recently, I finally got the chanc to watch the movie, “The Martian” (2015) starring Matt Damon.
The Martian is a 2015 American science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, based on Andy Weir’s 2011 novel The Martian. Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who is mistakenly presumed dead and left behind on Mars. The film depicts his struggle to survive and others’ efforts to rescue him. The film’s ensemble cast also features Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie, Donald Glover and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
I liked the movie, but I think I liked the music more.
Got to love music from the 70’s.
Here’s one of my favorites.

Well, today was a sad day for an icon from youth.
Mary Tyler Moore, whose witty and graceful performances on two top-rated television shows in the 1960s and ’70s helped define a new vision of American womanhood, died on Wednesday in Greenwich, Conn. She was 80.
I was a fan of her show “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”
At least we will always have her TV shows and movies to watch.
And here is one of my Top 10 TV Theme songs…
