Director: Ridley Scott

The crew of a pilgrim ship heading for a new world are woken by an accident 7 years from their destination, and the deaths of their crew make them wary of re-entering cryosleep. Enter a chance transmission from a habitable planet right nearby, which means they can settle here and now. But is it too good to be true?

As the crew investigate the transmission, two of their number fall ill with a strange parasite which bursts through their skin, and the only survivor on the planet seems to be a sinister android called David, a creature we met before in Prometheus.

It’s a strange film. In the timeline, it sits after Prometheus, which was a prequel to the Alien franchise. It tells more of the story of the evolution and creation of the alien xenomorph…

Saturday’s Mix–08 July 2017

Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

Welcome back to Saturday’s Mix.  This week, I thought we’d look at silhouettes.  As a photographer, I love silhouettes.  They have wonderful contrast of light and dark to reveal the outline of an object.  They truly fascinate me.  I wondered how this would look in writing.

Can we illuminate an object/topic, masking its depth–showing just the outline?  Here is my effort at a silhouette poem:

Pretty July day basking in sunshine,
highlighting the white picket fence,
two kids, pulling a dog in a red wagon.
A perfect silhouette of a family,
masking the tears streaked down
dirty little faces as they go inside
each evening to an empty table.

If you struggle with a silhouette poem/prose piece, you can also simply use the word in your writing.  As always feel free to use one of the images as inspiration or to illustrate your post.

Potato Salad

In Dianes Kitchen

There is nothing like comfort food at a picnic. Potato Salad is always a staple at our picnics along with macaroni salad, deviled eggs, baked beans and of course hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill. I have been making my potato salad this way since I began cooking many years ago…we won’t say how long! This was the same potato salad my Mom made, and still makes, when I was a child. Sorry Mom I am giving out your secret recipe. Some people like to add mustard, relish or more to their potato salad for added taste. What you add is your own personal preference and there are no wrong ingredients.


Start by adding your cooked potatoes, diced onion, chopped hard boiled eggs and chopped celery in a large bowl.


Add Miracle Whip, salt and pepper to your taste and mix well.


Top with sliced hard boiled eggs, garnish…
