Logan's War: Bound By Honor---Chuck Norris and Eddie Cibrian

When Logan Fallon (Brandon Ryan Barrett) was ten years old his father Nicholas Fallon (Matthew Tompkins) a prosecutor for the city of Chicago; was prosecuting a notorious gangster Albert Talgorno (R.D. Call) to send him to prison for a long time.

Even though Nicholas Fallon had police around his house to protect his family; young Logan was still afraid and worried. He told his father when he came into his room to say good night---he had a feeling---that something bad was going to happen. His father assured him that he had nothing to fear because they were protected by the police. He kissed Logan good night and everyone soon was asleep.

Logan had a rare gift of being able to sense danger before it happens it the only reason the men who entered their home on the night his family was murdered did not take them completely by surprise. His father got his gun and his mother called the police; however that did not spare them.

When Logan’s father was shot, Logan ran and hid behind a cabinet from which he could see the killers through the holes in the wood work. There was four of them; Sal Mercado (Jeff Kober) with three other gangster who carried out the order from Albert Talgorno.

Logan watched his as mother was shot and heard the shots when his little sister was killed. They could not find Logan and had to leave because the police sirens were loud and near. Logan was the only one who survived that terrible night.

 Logan’s Uncle Jake (Chuck Norris) his father’s brother had the same gift as Logan of being able to sense danger before it happened. He knew something was wrong so went to his brother’s as fast as possible.

Logan was in the hospital when his Uncle Jake arrived. Logan talked with Special Agent John Downing (Joe Sano) and when he asked Logan did he see the killers, he said no.

Logan went home with his Uncle Jake to live with him and Ben (James Gammon) who was Jake’s father-in-law. Logan had a lot to filter and tried to understand it all. Now he had a new home with his Uncle and Ben. Both men helped Logan and he grew into a well-balanced young man. A young man who had all the skills of a trained fighter.

The older Logan is played by (Eddie Cibrian) who became a ranger with his Uncle Jake's help. Logan now a man who served his country with honor. Logan still has a vendetta that pumps through his very heart and soul; never leaving his mind. He will go after the men and the man who sent them to kill his family. This is a Blood fued to be carried out by Logan and his Uncle Jake.

And now the action starts as Logan and his Uncle Jake take care of business.

Christy---Kellie Martin and Tyne Daly

                                                          First Movie

     To anyone, who has been stuck in your home, by the snow, rain, storms, or just not feeling up to par. Maybe, you have been watching movies or reading, and I think it is the best thing to do to avoid---cabin fever. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite movies. Which one can now find on DVD, and watch them over and over again, as I do.This one was made about sixteen years ago, and is still a favorite of many of my friends.Christy Complete Series.jpg
     Is there is anyone out there that has not seen "Christy" starring Kellie Martin and Tyne Daly? Then you have missed a great movie with the best actors. This movie is based on a novel by Catherine Marshall. ( It is cold and raining outside, and I am going to watch Christy, again--I have lost count of how many times I have watched the complete series.)
     If anyone wants a great movie which one can watch anytime to relax your mind, after a hard day at work, this is one to buy, you won't be sorry.
     Christy  was filmed in 1994-1995. It is in color and is  907 minutes long. Which is 15 hours of the best movie ever made on location in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, in my opinion.
     The movie begins in 1912, almost 100 years ago, when times were really hard for these mountain people. They barely had enough food to eat in the winter months, but their pride would not let them complain.
     I will never forget Cutter's Gap, because I was so engrossed in the movie, that I felt all the hurt, pain and the love these people shared. It felt like home to me, and I couldn't wait for the next night,(after work) to watch more---working in the daytime interferes with----my movie watching.
     This is a story of a young girl named Christy Huddleston, who left her loving parents, and the home she grew up in North Carolina to come to Cutter's Gap. She was there to teach children who were too poor to wear shoes, and lived in one of the poorest area of Tennessee.
     Christy was only a few years older than some of the students she came to Cutter's Gap to teach. This movie is so amazing. As I watched it, I struggled with Christy, as she learned the ways of the mountain people and their great Scottish pride
     She was constantly trying to make their lives better---but hitting the brick wall of pride. However, that did not stop her, and she learned how to help the proud Appalachian people keep their pride.
     Her sweet and helpful ways got her into trouble some of the time, but her heart was always in the right place. And she found love in Cutter's Gap. I won't tell if she married the tall handsome preacher; or the good looking doctor who was born in Cutter's Gap, and wore his proud Scottish pride, like a second skin.
     Christy became best friends with one of Cutter'sGap hardworking mothers. This was a very special relationship for them both, from the beginning to the end of the movie; I was the invisible member of Cutter's Gap.
