A New Look at Arranged Marriages (Movie)

Posted by Christina Hills on May 17, 2014 in Movies

If you have been opposed to the idea of arranged marriages, then you need to watch this film: “Arranged” by Cicala Filmworks

As part of my spiritual and religious quest that I have been on since Dec 2013 to understand God and the differences between the world religions, I stumbled across this movie on Netflix while searching for something interesting to watch that had a spiritual theme to it.

See trailer below

I first thought this would be a movie showing the horrors of arranged marriages.  But instead it was a tender film about a Jewish woman and a Muslim woman who are both at the age where her parents are arranging suitable husbands for them.  Instead of slamming the practice of arranged marriages, the film shows how it can work out for people.

And how people of different religious and cultural backgrounds can become good friends.
I give this film a big thumbs up!

Using the Facebook Comments Plugin

Posted by Christina Hills on May 1, 2011 in Musings

Did you know that with the facebook comments plugin, that you can have your WordPress website integrate with Facebook? Then when you post to your wordpress website, your users can leave a comment and it will post to their wall.

I see the video here:

 

The easiest plugin to do this is:

Moving This Site to ChristinaHills.org

Posted by Christina Hills on May 7, 2010 in Musings

I have decided to split out my personal blog with my business blog.  I’ve moved ChristinaHills.com to ChristinaHills.org.  The .org site will be more of a personal site (which it was already), and ChristinaHills.com will be my portal site connecting to all my other sites online.

That site is not yet live, as I’m working on it now. … So many sites to build, so little time!  ;)

Integrating WordPress, Twitter, and Facebook

Posted by Christina Hills on Mar 14, 2010 in Musings

I’m gearing up for the next Website Creation Workshop semester!  Registration will start Tuesday and I’m very excited.  I’ve got a new technique to integrate Twitter and WordPress and Facebook all at the same time, and I’m posting a blog post here now to see if it will work.

Here is how I’m doing it:

I have twitter tools installed to post to twitter when I make a blog post here.

I have twitter and facebook setup so that when I put a #fb in my tweets, it sends it to my facebook profile.

So if I post to this blog, you should see it on my facebook wall.

Hippo Ballet Dancer

Posted by Christina Hills on Sep 14, 2009 in Musings

So I’ve been trying to loose weight and it has not been easy.  Since I turned 40 the lbs just don’t come off like they used to in my younger 20-30 something days.

So I decided to take a ballet class.

It’s been 30 years since I took ballet, and I was amazed at how much I remembered of all the steps.

Well, being not quite as slender as I was, I felt like a Walt Disney Hippo in the “Dance of the Hours”.  It didn’t matter how I looked.  I felt great dancing.
