Juneathon 11 - Day #9

Juneathon 11 - Day #9
a nice easy run around Westtown Lake

I wanted to take a day off from running, but needed to at least do something today.  The run around Westtown Lake is probably a little more than a 1/2 mile or so (mostly trail).  I had run here several times over the winter, so it was different this time around in the spring with the sun out. 


Today's movie recommendation

Dan in Real Life

Widowed now for four years, Dan Burns is a lonely man. An advice columnist for the New Jersey Standard, he could use some advice himself, not only in making himself happier, but on how to deal with his three daughters of whom he is overly protective. They are heading to Rhode Island for their annual visit with Dan's parents, his several siblings and their respective families at the family home. There, Dan meets a woman named Marie at a local bookstore. They spend a memorable afternoon chatting with each other, although she is up front about not being able to take things further with him because she is in a relationship. It isn't until later that Dan learns that that relationship is with his womanizing brother Mitch, who seems to love her, and that Marie has been invited to the family gathering. The more time that Dan spends with Marie that weekend, the more he realizes that she could be the one for him. Because of his feelings, he acts a little unusually, which the rest of the family notices. But as the weekend progresses, Marie also gets to know Dan and the entire Burns family better. She learns some information which makes her realize her true feelings. If those feelings are for Dan, he isn't sure if he could ever hurt his brother by falling for the first supposed love of his life.

Great performance by Steve Carrell, and a suprisingly great performance by Dane Cook.  Good casting. 

This below picture is my favorite picture.  This is why I am so glad I don't have daughters. 

My favorite part of the movie is a duet with Steve Carrell and Dane Cook singing "Let My Love Open the Door" by Pete Townsend.  By fare the best part of the movie.

Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
