The first full week of 2016 just flew by. I did something foolish and hurt my back between Christmas and New Years so I spent a lot of time home just reading and using the heating pad. I was good to be back to normal this week as cabin fever was setting in.
We went to see Spotlight - based on a true story about a Boston Globe team who in 2001uncovered just how deep the Catholic priest scandal really went. It just may win the Oscar for Best Picture. FANTASTIC!
