Favorite Heroines #1 Anne Shirley prt2

 After trying to remember all this movie I decided to just copy Wikipedia's  review.  We  don't have it on DvD so I couldn't even rewatch it!  Boohoohoo. Maybe I can get it from ...... somewhere . Anyway  here  at long last is part two.

The film resumes the story of Anne Shirley, who at 16 had chosen to study for her college degree by correspondence in order to remain at Green Gables to help an aging Marilla, who has eyesight problems, look after the house and farm.
Anne now holds a Teacher's Licence after completing the two-year post-secondary course at Charlottetown's Queens Academy in only one year.
Gotta love that hair 
Anne begins to teach at Avonlea School and has dreams of becoming a writer, but her story “Averil’s Atonement” is rejected by a magazine. Leaving the post office one day, Anne runs into Gilbert Blythe, who tells her that her best friend Diana is engaged to Fred Wright. Anne is initially bewildered by Diana’s decision, calling it impulsive. Meanwhile, in the last two years, Marilla’s eyesight has greatly improved. Having regained her independence, Marilla encourages Anne to resume her old ambition of attending college.
At the clambake celebrating Fred and Diana’s engagement, Anne and Gilbert wander off to a bridge, where Gilbert proposes. Anne rejects his offer, convinced that their marriage would be unhappy and unsuccessful. She runs off.
At Diana’s wedding, Anne sees Gilbert with a young woman named Christine Stuart. Gilbert tells Anne that he and Christine are just friends, then offers to wait for her if there is any hope of them getting together. Anne rejects him again, and Gilbert suspects that there is someone else, despite Anne's assertion there is no person she cares about more than him.
Anne returns to Green Gables and decides to look into the job her former teacher Miss Muriel Stacey offered her. Eventually, Anne decides to take this job as an English teacher at Kingsport  Ladies’ College in the hope that it will inspire her and give her something to write about.
Every inch a lady/teacher/author 
Initially, Anne finds her new job to be difficult. A member of the local community - and member of the powerful Pringle family - had also tried for Anne’s post and was rejected, causing resentment. However, Anne gradually earns the respect of her students, their families and her colleagues, including the severe Katherine Brooke and the Pringle family. Her dream of being published is also finally achieved after she writes a series of short stories based on Avonlea inspired by a suggestion from Gilbert.
While teaching at the Ladies' College, Anne grows close to one student, Emmeline Harris, and is welcomed by Emmeline's entire family, including her widowed father who also proposes marriage.
I love this part on the movie 
Anne declines his proposal and returns to Green Gables, where she learns that Gilbert is ill with Scarlet Fever Anne finally realizes her true feelings for Gilbert, and goes to visit him. After Gilbert regains his health, he proposes once more, and Anne accepts him with a kiss, declaring, "I don't want sunbursts or marble halls, I just want you."

So there you go (finally part 2)  Part three will be here soon.  Trust me.

Music I Like

 I love music. I have yet to meet somone who doesn't. 
Here below are a few of my all time favourite Newsboys songs.   
The first one is of the band currently. The lead singer is Michael Tait  who used to be in the band DC Talk .  
In the older ones  Peter Furler   was lead singer but he left the other year and his solo album is set to come out in June this year.  
I think Michael Tait is easier to understand sing thean peter Furler.  I always had trouble understanding him.
So, Yeah here are the videos for your enjoyment.

A Joke

 I was told this joke years ago. I could never remember all of it , a great pity as I found it very funny. Anyway I found it on Laura's blog and decided to repost it on my blog.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherit the family ranch.
 Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble.. 
In order to keep the bank from
repossessing the ranch, they need to purchase a bull so that they can breed their own stock.

Upon leaving, the brunette tells her
sister, 'When I get there, if I decide to buy the bull, I'll contact you to drive out after me and haul it home.'

The brunette arrives at the man's
ranch, inspects the bull, and decides she wants to buy it. 
The man tells her that he will sell it for $599, no less. 
After paying him, she drives to the nearest town to send her sister a telegram to tell her the news. 
She walks into the telegraph office, and says, 'I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her that I've bought a bull for our ranch. 
I need her to hitch the trailer to our pickup truck and drive out here so we can haul it home.'

The telegraph operator explains that
he'll be glad to help her, then adds, it will cost 99 cents a word. 
Well, after paying for the bull, the brunette realizes that she'll only be able to send her sister one word.

After a few minutes of thinking, she
nods and says, 'I want you to send her the word 'comfortable.'

The operator shakes his head. 'How
is she ever going to know that you want her to hitch the trailer to your pickup truck and drive out here to haul that bull back to your ranch if you send her just the word 'comfortable?'

The brunette explains, 'My sister's
blonde. The word is big. 
She'll read it very slowly...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Who hasn't at least heard about this movie?  The very title brings to mind many things, of Chocolate and lollies, little men, an eccentric maybe crazy factory owner .And  poor boy who lives in a rickety tumble down sort of cottage with his mother , father and both sets of grandparents.  They don't have much but they do have love and that is at the heart of this movie.    Those who have real love, a love that binds and those who have a love of things that destroys their hearts and minds and those  in their lives.

Here is the Wikipedia review of the  2005 movie:
All in the Factory looking in wonder
Charlie Bucket is a kind loving child from Scotland growing up in a very poor family. He lives with his mother, his father (who works in a toothpaste factory), and his four bedridden grandparents in the same town as the famous chocolate factory. The company's owner, Willy Wonka has long closed access to his factory due to problems concerning industrial espionage that ultimately led him to fire all his employees, among them Charlie's Grandpa Jo. One day, Wonka informs the world of a contest, in which five Golden Tickets have been placed in five random Wonka bars  worldwide, and the winners will be given a full tour of the factory as well as a lifetime supply of chocolate, while one ticket holder will be given a special prize at the end of the tour.
Wonka's sales subsequently skyrocket, with people from different parts of the world searching for the tickets. Eventually the first four tickets are found by Augustus Gloop a greedy gluttonous eater from Germany; Veruca Salt, a spoiled rotten brat from  England; Violet Beauregard, a rude competitive gum chewer, gymnast, and karate champion from  Georgia; and Mike Teevee, an arrogant hot-headed television, computer, and video game addict from  Colorado. Charlie tries twice to find a ticket, but both bars come empty. After overhearing that the final ticket was found in  Russia, Charlie finds a ten-dollar bill, and purchases a Wonka Bar at the local candy store. At the exact moment it is revealed that the Russian ticket was forged, Charlie discovers the real fifth ticket inside the wrapper. Although two other customers offer to buy it from him, Charlie runs home to tell his family and decides to bring Grandpa Joe to accompany him on the factory tour.
An Oompa- Loompa
Charlie and the other ticket holders are greeted by Wonka outside the factory who then leads the group into the facility. During the tour, each of the bad children disobey Wonka's orders after being tempted by something related to their individual character flaws, and suffer various consequences: Augustus is sucked up a chocolate extraction pipe after falling into a chocolate river from which he was drinking, Violet is turned into an oversized blueberry after chewing unstable three-course-meal gum, Veruca and her father are pushed into a garbage chute by worker squirrels after Veruca tried to take one as a pet, and Mike is shrunk with a teleporter that he uses on himself. Wonka's employees, the Oompa loompa's, sing a song of morality after each elimination. The children later leave the factory with an exaggerated characteristic or deformity related to their demise: Augustus covered in chocolate, Violet blue-coloured and flexible, Veruca and her father covered in garbage, and Mike overstretched.
Charlie with his ticket
Wonka then invites Charlie to come live and work in the factory with him, and reveals that the purpose of the Golden Tickets and the tour was to make the "least rotten" child the heir of the factory itself so he can have someone carry on his legacy when he dies. The only condition, however, is that Charlie must leave his family behind, because Wonka believes family is a hindrance to a chocolatier's creative freedom, a philosophy Wonka developed due to his dentist father, Dr. Wilbur Wonka, denying his son candy because of the potential risk to his teeth. After secretly sampling some candy, Wonka was instantly hooked. When his father found out, and said he would not allow his son to become a chocolatier, Wonka ran away to follow his dreams.
Charlie in the Factory
As his family is the most important thing in his life, Charlie refuses Wonka's offer. Charlie and his family are living contently a while later, but Wonka is emotionally depressed; he returns to seek advice, and Charlie helps him re-unite with his estranged father. Charlie ultimately inherits the factory, while Wonka has patched up with his family.

Here is the Wikipedia review of the 1971 film.

Charlie Bucket is a poor boy living with his widowed mother and four bed-ridden grandparents in a tiny house. Charlie supplements the meager family income by delivering newspapers after school. One day, the family, along with the rest of the world, learns that the candy maker Willy Wonka has hidden five Golden Tickets amongst his Wonka Bars. The finders of these special tickets will be given a full tour of his tightly-guarded candy factory, as well as a lifetime supply of chocolate. Charlie wants to take part in the search, but cannot afford to buy vast quantities of chocolate like other participants. Four of the tickets are found by: Augustus Gloop, a gluttonous German boy; Veruca Salt, a spoiled English girl; Violet Beauregard, a gum-chomping American girl; and Mike Teevee, a television-obsessed American boy. As they find their tickets, a sinister-looking man is observed whispering in their ears, to which they listen attentively despite their preoccupations with their particular obsessions. Charlie's hopes are dashed when news breaks that the final ticket had been found by a millionaire.
Charlie with his ticket
The next day, as the Golden Ticket craze dies down, Charlie finds a silver coin in a gutter and uses it to buy a Wonka Bar. Simultaneously, word spreads that the ticket found by the millionaire was forged. When Charlie opens the bar, he finds the real golden ticket, and races home to tell his family, but is stopped along the way by the same man who had been seen whispering to the other four winners. The man introduces himself as Arthur Slugworth, a rival confectioner who offers to pay Charlie for a sample of Wonka's latest creation, the Everlasting Gobbstopper
Charlie in the Factory
Grandpa Joe manages to get out of bed to serve as Charlie's tour chaperone. The next day, Wonka greets the children and their guardians at the factory gates and leads them inside, requiring each to sign a contract before the tour can begin. Inside is a psychedelic wonderland full of chocolate rivers, giant edible mushrooms, lickable wallpaper and other ingenious inventions and candies, as well as Wonka's workers, the small, orange-skinned, green-haired Oompa Loompas. As the tour progresses, each of the first four children misbehave against Wonka's warnings, resulting in serious consequences. Augustus is sucked through a chocolate extraction pipe system and sent to the Fudge Room after trying to drink from a chocolate river. Violet transforms into a giant blueberry after trying an experimental piece of Three-Course-Dinner Gum. Veruca is rejected as a "bad egg" and sent plummeting down a garbage chute in the Chocolate Golden Egg Sorting Room. Mike is shrunken to only a few inches in height after being transmitted by "Wonkavision," a broadcasting technology that can send objects through television instead of pictures. The Oompa-Loompas sing a song after each mishap, describing that particular child's poor behavior.
Charlie also succumbs to temptation along with Grandpa Joe, as they stay behind in the Bubble Room and sample Fizzy Lifting Drinks. They begin floating skyward and are nearly sucked into a ceiling-mounted exhaust fan. To avoid this grisly fate, they burp repeatedly until they return to the ground. Wonka initially seems unaware of this incident.
When Charlie becomes the last remaining child on the tour, Wonka politely dismisses him and Grandpa Joe and disappears into his office, without awarding Charlie his lifetime supply of chocolate. Grandpa Joe and Charlie enter the office, where Wonka tells them that Charlie does not get the prize because he broke the rules. Puzzled, Grandpa Joe denies seeing any rules. Wonka angrily reveals the forfeiture clause of the contract Charlie signed. Charlie's part in the theft of the Fizzy Lifting Drinks means that he violated the contract, and therefore he receives nothing. Wonka dismisses them. Grandpa Joe vows to give Slugworth the gobstopper, but Charlie places the gobstopper on Wonka's desk.
An Oompa - Loompa
Wonka recants and begs for his guests' forgiveness. He reveals that Slugworth is actually an employee named Wilkinson, whose offer to buy the gobstopper was a morality test for the Golden Ticket winners, and Charlie was the only one who passed.
The trio enter the "Wonkavator", a multi-directional glass elevator, and fly out of the factory in it. As they soar over the village, Wonka tells Charlie that his actual prize is the factory itself, as the Golden Ticket search was created to help Wonka search for an honest and worthy child to be the heir to his chocolate empire. Charlie and his family will reside in the factory and take over its operation when Wonka retires.

As I have shown you there are two versions. Which do you prefer? I love the new one . Yes, Johnny Depp is Willy Wonka but that has nothing to do with it I assure you. Some people find that Willy Wonka in this version looks like Michael Jackson . Interesting don't you think?  The 1971 one always scared me as a small child even as an older child I didn't really like it. There were just parts that always scared me. That's why I love the new one . The new one is very well done and its also very funny but so is the 1971 one in a way.    Anyway that's my rant on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  And if you haven't actually read the reviews that's fine they are very long.
I know, I didn't actually read through either of them. :D
