1. I deeply enjoyed the movie "Lemon Tree" and was especially taken by the soulful, powerful work of Hiam Abbass, the Palestinian woman doing all she can to protect the lemon grove that has been in her family for many years.
2. One powerful performance by Hiam Abbass deserves another: she is sexy and powerful in "Satin Rouge" as her character finds liberation from the grip of widowhood and grief through belly dancing.
3. My sideview mirror must be replaced before I'm willing to drive back to Kellogg and Robin Aga at Reco's got the ball rolling toward this end.
