Know your favorite movie over & over again. Can you spot the mistakes in the film? Here is the site for you. Tons of movie titles that you can look up & find the errors.
Throughtout the movie you can see that Kathleen's bed is on the far wall of her apartment. At the beginning of the movie, the bed is straight up agianst the wall. Towards the end, when Joe brings Kathleen daisies (when she's sick) she jumps into bed. The two of them are talking about their "meeting" in the cafe that happened earlier in the movie. You can clearly see that Kathleen's bed has been moved closer to the bathroom, and is now sitting at an angle.

For a multitude of moods, enjoy a single serving of Sofia Mini Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine. A distinctive blend as unconventional as the woman who inspired it, Mini is for the impromptu, impetuous, live-passionately-for-the-moment kind of person. The kind who lives like there is no tomorrow!

“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.”

The highly anticipated second entry in the Star Wars mimobot collection is here! Included in the series is Princess Leia! Strong, beautiful and diplomatic, Luke Skywalker's twin sister is the backbone of the Rebellion against the Empire. Have her give your data to R2-D2 to keep away from Darth Vader (both from the Star Wars mimobot Series 1), or just let her protect it herself. She may lead you into a garbage masher, but never assume she doesn't know exactly what she's doing. Into the USB port, flyboy!
Check out all the Star War's characters!

The story of the Macaroon
These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are the most famous creation of Ladurée. The story of the Ladurée macaroon starts with Pierre Desfontaines, distant cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, who at the beginning of the 20th century first thought of taking two macaroon shells and joining them with a delicious ganache filling. The way of making them has never changed since that time. These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are made every morning in Ladurée’s "laboratory". The pastry chefs measure out very precisely the required amounts of almonds, eggs and sugar, before adding one final ingredient, a pinch of unique "know-how", essential to the making of such a delicacy. Once cooked and filled, the macaroons are put to one side for 2 days before going on sale, the time it takes to achieve a perfect balance between texture and flavour.Macaroons come in two sizes: the mini-macaroon or "gerbet" and full-size macaroons.With each new season, Ladurée pays tribute to this its most famous creation by creating a new flavour.The existing range of macaroons is always the starting point when a new one is created, as the variety of colours is as important as the range of flavours and a vital part of their appeal.
The new flavour for summer:
Flavours that are permanently available:
Chocolate, Dark chocolate, Vanilla, Coffee, Rose petal, Pistachio, Salted butter Caramel, Cherry amaretto, Raspberry, Orange blossom, Liquorice.
Seasonal flavours :
Lemon, Praline, Ice mint, Coconut, Chestnut, Grenadine.
Special & temporary creations:
Java Pepper - Apricot Ginger - Muscovado - Candyfloss - Havana - White amber - Indian Rose - Aniseed - Champagne - Orange Saffron - Lily-of-the-valley - Strawberry Poppy - Gingerbread - Rosanis
