    A phrase that could be used to describe me is “consistently persistent,” and even though I sometimes feel that I make a nuisance of myself when I repeatedly request interviews with actors (I especially feel this way when I’ve asked more than five times and I am quickly approaching ten times), I have come to realize that ninety-nine percent of the […]

    I don’t believe I have missed a single “Countdown to Christmas” movie this year on the Hallmark Channel nor its sister network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. While I have my personal favorites, there is no denying that a massive hit this year was their film A Heavenly Christmas starring Eric McCormack, Kristin Davis, and the legendary Shirley MacClaine.
