This is how we spent our evening with 3 great friends and my Mom. Can you say...um wait a sec. Oh Brian sweetie? Hands over your ears now my love...can you say Hugh Jackman is a hottie? Uh huh.I knew you could. Whew. This is the sort of sweeping epic that Hollywood used to make. If I had listened to the critics (And I NEVER do by the way!) we would not have gone at all. What we would have missed! I have not cried that much at the movies in awhile! Cried, laughed and came straight up off my seat! Now THAT is a movie! And this precious young man, Brandon Walters, he grabbed my heart at the film's start and never let go. And Hugh? Oh but the man looks good on a horse. And in a tux. And without the horse and the tux. Did I just say that? Um, I guess I did. Forgive me. "Australia" was a huge hit with the 4 ladies and 2 gentlemen in our group (although the men refused to answer the "Isn't Jackman hot?" question)...it just might be a hit with you as well. Okay now Brian! You can listen in now...and if any of these ladies tries to tell you that I said Hugh Jackman was hot, that are fibbing. Hmpf.

...Not seldom from the uproar I retired Into a silent bay, or sportively
Glanced sideway, leaving the tumultuous throng, To cut across the shadow of a star
That gleamed upon the ice. And often times When we had given our bodies to the wind, And all the shadowy banks on either sideCame sweeping through the darkness, spinning still
The rapid line of motion, then at once Have I, reclining back upon my heels, Stopped short --- yet still the solitary cliffs
Wheeled by me, even as if the earth had rolled
With visible motion her diurnal round.
Behind me did they stretch in solemn train,
Feebler and feebler, and I stood and watched
Till all was tranquil as a dreamless sleep.
