The Winnetka mansion where the 1990 movie "Home Alone" was filmed has undergone a second price cut, to $1.95 million.
It's the latest price drop for the three-story brick mansion, whose owners, John and Cynthia Abendshien, allowed filmmakers to use the house in the popular movie and its first sequel. The Abendshiens listed it in May for $2.4 million and reduced their asking price to $2.18 million in June.
The owners, John and Cynthia Abendshien, had only lived for a year and a half in the house when Chris Columbus, the film's director, came knocking at their door.
"'Are you ready yet?'" the couple recalls Columbus asking. Prior to moving to the property, the Abendshiens were approached to have their previous home appear in "Uncle Buck," another film written by John Hughes and starring Macaulay Culkin.
Located in the well-heeled Chicago suburb of Winnetka, Ill., the 4,250 square foot, the three-story home looks just as picturesque today as it did for the 1990 theatrical release of the film.
So what am I doing when I am not blogging you ask? What do you mean you don't care? Well too bad Am going to tell you anyway. It's called Stardew Valley and it is the one video game I can not put down at all! If I go too long without playing I get nervous that my farm needs me not to mention my wife and kids! No not my real wife in kids my Kilmer Family on Cedar Famers. What makes this Farmville rip off so much fun I don't know I can not put a finger on it yet I come back day after day, in fact, I have put in well over 100 hours into this bad boy. Of course my favorite season...

And then there are the festivals aka Halloween where you get to watch dancing skeletons and do a corn maze, bonkers I tell ya Bonkers! The only thing missing is Trick or Treating now that would be cool.
I love it when a different style game comes to the console. And dating sim's are the rage over sea's so for one to hit the states seems fair. I also like the idea that it is an LGBTQ-friendly game, tho the focus will be more on straight relationships.
Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker originally came out for mobile in 2014, with a PC release following in 2015. These console ports will expose the game to a wider audience.
“Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker isn’t just a fun dating sim, it’s also really about love being for everyone, regardless of gender, sexuality, hair color, or penchants for giant robot anime (Miaow!),” game director Richard Franke said in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “We were overwhelmed and humbled by the positive response of Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker on the smaller screen and are so excited to bring it to a wider audience on PS4 and Xbox One.”
The console versions will add new features, including an updated avatar system and new, dynamic dialogue. These additions could…
Alyssa Milano's Teen Steam 1988 | Color | 45 Minutes | NR | Family/Music | Propaganda Films
Yeah, I know Sex sells in advertising. Teen Steam with Alyssa Milano I get it! She is hot and she works out, but that's so not what they meant by Steam! What they really meant by that was the young teens renting this kidding porn found in the family aisle of your video store. Come on you mean to tell me girls rented this to work out no way! Teenage boys were getting the workout.
And this was long before the horrible Embrace of the Vampire. The best thing was this only runs 30 minutes not an hour and a half too long. Well, thanks to the power of youtube I can post the video for you to be the judge. Make sure to stop back next week for another trip down memory lane with another hot starlet from the '80's.
Sorry for the lack of post's this week I will try and get caught up soon. With Thanksgiving on our heels and while working retail Black Friday is on my mind. Not to mention inventory the first week of December. Yesterday was Ella's Diabetes 3 month follow up her A1C was a little higher than we would have liked. She came in at 8.9% they would really like her to be under 8%. Other then those things look good. So just a quick share this week.
WKRP Turkey Drop
If I don't get a chance to say it later Happy Thanksgiving.
