Millenium Trilogy by Steig Larrson

Watched this trilogy with my hubs over the last few days and it was amazing. Each of the movies were wonderfully crafted stories on their own, but all together, they were mesmerizing. (We did have to read 2 1/2 hours of subtitles per movie, but please don't let that keep you from watching. **I have read that the US will be doing versions of these movies, as well.  Watch them in Swedish before Hollywood ruins them.)

Sad to hear Larsson died,
because if these movies are any indication of his books,
he would have had a prolific career as a mystery writer.

A special text

My baby started classes today @LSU.
7:30am Chemistry.
On my phone, this is what I awoke to:

Catarina-Bo-Bina: Hey Mom, thanks for getting me to this first day of college.
I'm so glad to have you and I want to say thanks for prepping me to be the woman
I will be after these first years at LSU.
I love you so much.

Catarina, you are greater than anything I could have done on my own.
You make the world a better place and great, GREAT, things lie ahead for you.
I pray.
I love you,
