Hi Everyone,

Happy Mothers Day to all you American mothers! Apol

ogies for the group changes. FB have been changing settings on us and there was nothing we could do about it. It means now that unless you change your settings within the group, you will keep

getting notifications. If you need help with this please don’t hesitate to drop me a line.

I have a quick tip for you… I was grocery shopping at Ralphs the other day and used my rewards/loyalty card and saved $27!! I know some of you are back and forth between here and the UK and don’t necessarily want to sign up for things like that. But it really is well worth it. Plus when you use your Ralphs loyalty card at Shell gas stations, you get 10 cents off per gallon!

Have you signed up for AAA yet? It is a roadside assistance service (like AA or RAC) and costs about $40 a year. You also get lots of discounts including rental cars, hotels and at restaurants across the country. On May the 20th they have even booked Magic Mountain for the evening and are open to all AAA members with up 58% off entry. It usually closes at 6pm so this is quite a treat!

'Kemp' is a fitting head of household of this beyond-dysfunctional family. BRITISH ACCENT NEEDED.

PLOT SUMMARY: The sexy, dark comedy ENTERTAINING MR. SLOANE revolves around the charming, enigmatic Mr. Sloane as he arrives to rent a room from Kath a lonely, delusional landlady, in a house she shares with her declining father, Kemp. A handsome opportunist, Sloane quickly ingratiates himself, entering into seductions offered by both Kath, and her estranged brother Ed, who soon employs Sloane as his driver. Sloane’s past misdeeds and the dueling affections within the family soon collide, leading to a desperate act that proves the limit of his charms, and reveals the ruthless and cunning strategies that Sloane’s victims will engage in to preserve their unique arrangement.
