One time when my dad was a kid, he was out riding his father's new French racing bicycle. Little did he know, his neighbor's horse was on the loose. As he passed a row of trees, the horse came galloping between them and hit my dad. The horse, my father, and my grandfather's French bicycle went flying. The horse died, my dad broke his collarbone, and the bike was destroyed. It has always seemed a little unlikely to me that my father actually "got hit by a horse riding his bicycle," but that...

Ooooooh I just have to tell you, my little old tubby hubby Wayne and I have been keeping close to home lately. It's just too darned cold to go out anywhere. Wayne has even been buying his adult beverages and bringing them home instead of swilling with the boys at the Legion.

Is it better to have loved and lost or to never have loved at all? Cold Mountain, starring Nicole Kidman and Renee Zellweger address this question and so much more.

Cold Mountain tells the story of a city girl, Ada (Kidman), who moves to the small town of Cold Mountain just prior to the Civil War.
