We enjoyed the movie on Saturday ("The Lion ..."). I give it an A-. Very good movie for a great book. The only things that held it back from an A for me were the same things that held back Miles Travis (see Miles' review at "Travis Family" in the sidebar).
Our 37 hour trip to LaCrosse was great. We enjoyed seeing my Grandparents, and had a good time going to the Children's museum there and the Christmas lights at Riverside Park.
Two of LaCrosse's claims to fame (or infamy) is that it is 1.) the home of the world's largest 6-pack, and 2.) the world's worst tasting beer.
