Free Movie Library

Sullivan Entertainment offers free movie library

I wrote about the 20th Anniversary Five-Disc Collector’s Edition of Anne of Green Gables for Mother’s Day. I was so excited I spent all day Monday watching it. I called my mom last night and talked about it with her for a while. I was so surprised when she asked me to order her a copy of the DVD as well.

So, I spent some time today price checking and was so excited to find an entire section on Sullivan Entertainment containing a free Movie Library (scroll down the page), where you will find (among other things) 39 complete episodes of Anne-The Animated Series. The site includes several other series that I personally have never heard of, including: Gus & Felicity: An Enduring Friendship, Jasper & Olivia’s Secret Romance, Grace Bailey’s Terms of Endearment, as well as episodes of Super Rupert.

While I have not checked them all out yet, knowing Sullivan’s reputation for bringing family friendly movies to the screen, I would be very surprised to find anything among these with inappropriate content.

I will note that the video window is quite small and I didn’t find a way to enlarge it but for those who don’t mind, this is a wonderful source of free entertainment, not to mention a chance to watch the shows before deciding to purchase them.

If you take the time to check them out, please let me know what you think of the offerings.

Happy Mother’s Day

Posted by Annie on May 10, 2008 in Uncategorized

Mother’s Day is tomorrow but I’ve already received all my gifts. Shame on me!

My daughter arrived last night from Reno, NV with grandkids. Oh my, they grow so fast. You can imagine my surprise when they arrived with warm brownies; after all it’s a four-hour drive. She confessed, they actually kept them on the heater vent the entire trip to keep them warm. How funny and sweet. The oldest (the 4-year-old) was very excited to hand me my gift, which we all shared after dinner.

This year my husband made sure I got everything I wanted for Mother’s Day – he had me order them myself.

First to arrive was my new . I have been trying to find one for going on two-years. While I love it, the watch is shiny, elegant and easy to read. I must confess it’s about half the diameter that I was expecting. When will I learn to read the description closer? (Case Diameter: 1 1/16")

Anne of Green Gables - 5-disc collection

I am such a fan of Anne of Green Gables that I receive regular updates from Sullivan Entertainment and I was simply thrilled to find the is out. Not only did they include two-new documentaries, but also included was lost footage, missing scenes and my favorite, The Missing Episode, “Marilla Cuthbert’s Death,” which I was especially interested in watching.

I must say after staying up last night to watch it, it wasn’t anything like what I was expecting and I personally feel Kevin Sullivan, the producer made the right choice in excluding it from the final cut. I felt it detracted from the rest of the story, even though it cleared up several questions the movie failed to address. Still, I enjoyed watching it.

I am certain this collection will get as much use, if not more than my set of VHS tapes that I’ve all but worn out over the years. I especially enjoyed learning more about Lucy Maud Montgomery.

Today we’ll turn on the bubble machine, watch the kids play and get lots of pictures. It’s so wonderful to have the grandkids come to visit and so nice to see them go afterwards. I’m already looking forward to the rest.

I think all Mother’s are special and Homeschooling Mothers are the best of all.

What does your perfect Mother’s Day look like? How will you spend your special day?

Top 10 Reasons To Homeschool

My eleven year old is; well, he’s eleven and he acts like the typical eleven-year-old. I remind him each day to brush his teeth and he manages to act like it’s the first time he’s ever been asked to brush them in his life.

Does that dumbfounded look come standard on all eleven-year-olds? You would think it would be impossible to look perfectly shocked each and every time.

For example, just this evening, I had asked if the clothes in the dryer were dry. He checked them and I got his standard reply, "they are still a little damp." So, I decided to bite and told him to run them for a few minutes and then please take them out and fold them.

Three hours later, I went to move the clothes from the washing machine, into the dryer. The dryer was of course, otherwise occupied.

When I inquired as to my previous request. I was told, "I forgot." His customary reply. So, when he started removing the clothes from the dryer, as he’s putting them in the basket, he asks, "Are these all mine?" He had the nerve to look surprised, astounded really. Well, hello – who else’s would they be?

Later that evening, as I walked past the bathroom, he indignantly called out, "why did you finish all the toilet paper on the roll and not replace it?" I looked at him stone-faced and said, "I forgot."
