My favourite movies this year has to be Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2. Like most people I like Groot but I really love Drax. His view of life is so simple, "You hurt what is mine and I will destroy you", that's how I feel too
My favourite book/series/genre of the year: Well I discovered Steampunk fantasy which is pretty cool and of course read a lot about vampires but this year I've been reading a lot of what they call Cozy Mysteries and the one that I wished had more books in it was "Retired Witches Mysteries" by Joyce and Jim Lavene. "Spell Booked" is the first in the series.
I discovered two new musical groups this year, my favourite is the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the other one is a group called Pentagon out of China I think
There are other favourites as well but today I will stop here, tomorrow or the next day I'll talk about crating and travel
