A new story by Ann Garvald. Read it here.
Somehow two of the url’s don’t seem to work on my first blog with this title so here they are again with problem ones shortened …
….then look for abbe francois
then look for “why nobody cared…”
Hope these work this time.
July 2010 issue of Vanity Fair reports a poll done through CBS which included the question:
If you could live in a movie for one day, whose life would you want to live ?
The choice of eight included three females;
Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City
Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman’s character) in Casablanca
Lara Croft in Tomb raider.
4% of male respondents chose Carrie.
3% of male respondents chose Ilsa
1% of male respondents chose Lara.
That’s 8% of males wanting female roles. Pretty good, eh ?
Ann Garvald Blog –The Book That Changed My Life
If this was Readers Digest, a title like the one above would almost certainly suggest an article about The Bible. Well, that’s not the case here. Not that I have anything against The Bible, although I do wish that the born-again types who have hijacked the name “Christian” would pay more attention to Christ’s message of love and tolerance in the New Testament and less to a God of vengeance and retribution that they seem to think is the only message in the Old Testament.
With a lot of patient technical help from WebMistress re how to post, I’ve added another story to “Recommended Reading”, this one titled “Discovered”.
I’ve never blogged before, and maybe what I’m about to write –a brief bio of Ann –is not strictly blog material, in which case my apologies. What follows will seem very me-me-me — narcissistic I guess — but that has to be when one is introducing oneself.
