10 Mar

THIS WEEK’S NEW Samuel L. Jackson movie. I kid, of course, though Jackson is in a lot of movies!  Actually, don’t dismiss this – it looks very cool, not just because of Jackson but because of John C.

Looking back on all of that whenever Scientology is in the news only serves as a reminder of how sick my mom was and how difficult we had it. Needless to say, Scientology didn’t help her.
