NEWS: Next break for The Hobbit will start in June--Excerpt from the Irish Times:
“her boyfriend, the actor Aidan Turner..was back from shooting The Hobbit in New Zealand. He’s home for Christmas and then filming again until June..”
Definitely a rockin' New Year with this one from bccmee -- don't get literally blown away ;)
Is it morbid or a fine way to memorialize those who lost their lives? Cruise ships are recreating Titanic's itinerary - even dinner menus - for the 100th anniversary on Apr 15, 2012..(see poll)
Message from Richard Armitage, 24th December 2011
So my feet are finally on UK soil, back in Blighty, nose to tail traffic and the usual Heathrow drizzle. But it's good to be home for Christmas. I think the jet lag might give me a sneaky glimpse of Santa this year as I am wide awake at 2am!
It's been one of the most memorable years I have ever experienced, the big birthday (which I tried to ignore, by sleeping through it!) and the privilege to be in NZ working on The Hobbit has make this year unforgettable. The places we have been to and the things we have seen, have surpassed all my expectations. I was very choked up as the plane left Wellington on Weds, it really has become home and to all my new friends there and my old friends here I would like to raise a glass for the festive season.
Thank you for the continuing support which you all lend as part of our community of 'friends', it really has an impact on me personally, I feel very much supported and I hope that waiting for the film isn't too frustrating. I haven't quite had the time to attend to all the signed photos that people were requesting as Christmas gifts for family and friends and I apologise for dissappointing them, I will get on the case as soon as I can.
I think next year will be like that last turn of the corner when you think you have reached the summit, only to find you are miles from the top and the climb is even steeper, but we are gearing up for an exciting ride. I even might step off the treadmill and put my dumb bells down briefly to scoff some turkey on 25th!!
Thank you all for the continued generosity on the Just Giving pages which in total comes to more than £14,000.
I would like to say Happy Christmas to everyone who drops in to catch up on the news and further across our online 'party' of friends, have a great holiday, and a cracking New Year. Just think this time next year, we'll all be crossed eyed from all the 3D movies we will have watched, and by 2013, technology will have advanced so much, we won't even have to go the the cinema, it will be transmitted directly into our imagination by a WIFI/Bluetooth microchip which we will have all had installed into our Hypothalamusesl! (Hypothalami?)
Enjoy the typos!
Peace and goodwill (and I really mean that, be willingly good, extra good, extra peaceful and extra forgiving)

Following fanvids seem very appropriate after reading *willingly* good above...will you make a New Years resolution to be "extra good".*winks* You know who you are out there..is this your prayer *wide grin*
Some have more to ask forgiveness for than others *cough*
DAILY WORKOUT: New year is almost here, as with most people, I've been pondering what would be a good resolution??...hmmm...hubby and I try to hike (actually more like a vigorous long walk) at least 3Xs per week. BUT, after all the holiday feasting it feels as though something extra needs to be added in order to work off those holiday goodies. Perhaps a daily workout is in order - decided to post a new one here each week until we find the perfect daily routine.
Regular workouts are just a matter of finding the right incentive. See zumba vid in latest post.
