A to Z: Letter V - Goals - Celebrate

By Hans Bernd Gisevius

When on July 20, 1944, a bomb—boldly placed inside 

Hitler’s headquarters by Colonel Count Claus von 

Stauffenberg— exploded without killing the Führer, the 

subsequent coup d’état against the Third Reich collapsed. ...

If you have the time, watch a thrilling preview:

I recommend this suspenseful and thrilling movie.

Trivia: Who played Major-General Henning Von Tresckow. Hint: He also played Professor Gilderoy Lockheart in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Yesterdays' Trivia Answer: Jack Lemmon, Dean Jones, Carol Lynley, Imogene Coca, and Edie Adams were some of the actor's who starred in Under the Yum Yum Tree.

 This week I'm Celebrating the Sunshine!!It's funny how the sunny days make even your worst mood brighten somewhat. 
What are you Celebrating? Hop over to Scribblings of An Aspiring Author to join in the weekly celebration.

I have fallen way, way short of my 20K goal on my wip. :(   
I can blame the busy month, but I blame myself for not remaining focused and determined. Possibly next month I can buckle down and make it to 30k.

If you'd like to add your name and goals to the list, hop over to Misha Gericke's.


  1. Yep, I knew the answer to that one!

  2. April seems to be tough on all of us. Best of luck for May!

  3. I didn't know the answer. Another movie I have missed....

  4. I'm glad the sun has scared away the snow clouds.

  5. I saw the movie, but would have probably not have known the answer.

  6. I had the Kenneth, but cheated and took Branagh from Alex. He know everything.

  7. I didn't see Valkyrie :-/

    Sunshine is great to celebrate, and don't worry, next month we're breaking out the whip and you MUST get 30k. Or else...

  8. I haven't seen this movie but your recommendation makes me want to change that.
    You'll get to your goal next month. :)
    Enjoy the sunshine!

  9. I never saw Valkyrie, but I think I'd like to. It's just one of those we missed. Maybe we'll have to make a movie night of it. =)

    True Heroes from A to Z

  10. I never saw Valkyrie. I can't believe you guys are now at V. Way to go! Sunshine is definitely something to celebrate about and although you're short of your writing goal for the month, I'm sure you can make up for it next month. Good luck!

  11. Yes I knew the answer......honest.
    I am celebrating that I'm still virtually free from shoulder pains weeks after my shots.

  12. I haven't seen it yet. I'll look into it now, after having read this post.

    I'm celebrating being alive. I'm blessed with a wonderful family and much love. Everything else is small in comparison.

    I think this is a great post--inspiring us to think about what we're celebrating! Nicely done!

  13. I saw the movie, but all I could think of when I saw Branagh was "Lockhart." I did enjoy it, though.

  14. I haven't seen Valkyrie...bits and pieces, but not the whole movie, but if you're recommending it, I guess I will watch the whole thing! :)

    Celebrating the sunshine is a good thing to celebrate...I was just thinking today, it's been perfect weather all week. After our terrible winter, that is a wonderful blessing in itself! :)

  15. The sunshine definitely lifts the spirits, hope next month is more productive for your writing. This has been a busy month.
