As the weekend approaches, and you can take some time to do something really GOOD for yourself, I would like to share a special holiday treat, that I think you’ll enjoy as much as I do.

Last December, my good friend Diana, mailed me the DVD - “NOEL” - starring: Susan Sarandon (who I love more than my own life), Alan Arkin, Penelope Cruz, Paul Walker, and Robin Williams.

“NOEL” is a magical heart-warming Christmas tale of how five peoples lives come together in love, forgiveness, hope, redemption, and Divine Intervention.

Folks, this is a holiday movie that you don’t want to miss….TRULY!

This year, I’ve watched it 3 times already and will most likely watch it again before Christmas actually gets here.

(I even watched it this past summer…and pretended that it was Christmas)

It’s beautifully acted, and the story is beyond brilliant!

So I implore you to give yourself and your family (if that so applies) a pre-Christmas experience, that will live on and on throughout the year.

Grab your beverage and snack of choice, light some candles, turn on your Christmas tree and sit back for 102 minutes; allowing yourself to FEEL this outstanding film.

(I’m pretty sure you can rent it at any video store in your area)

For a sneak preview and for further inspiration, please visit: “NOEL

Wishing you a warm and fuzzy weekend!

P.S. If you watch it, do let me know what you think.

    Oh, Grace..I actually met her 2 years ago, here in the city, during an award ceremony. They showed a 20 minute film montage of all her films, and then she answered questions from the audience, for an hour. When she walked out on stage, I actually got teary-eyed. Such an awesome lady...and SO REAL! She is extremely vocal and passionate about her personal beliefs, and doesn't give a damn.

    Got to love her for that!

    I think you'll really appreciate this film. Let me know what you feel!

    Good to see ya, my friend!


  10. Hey Greg!

    Yes...the cast is incredible!

    This film was "very underground" so it didn't get a lot of hype...but usually these type films, end up being classics!

    I think you'll really like this one, Greg. If you do watch it, let me know what you feel!

    Thanks for stopping by, buddy!
