‘When in Rome’ Contest Winners!

posted by Nell Minow

Thanks so much to all who entered my contest for “When in Rome” DVDs! The good news is that it was my most popular contest ever. The bad news is that I have only five copies to give away. Thanks so much to all who entered and for your wonderful suggestions for the most romantic city ever. Italy came in first, with many picks for Venice and some for Rome, Siena, and Florence. But Paris was the city with the most votes. Some liked Hawaii and one liked Alaska. Montreal, Chicago, San Francisco and New York had supporters. Many said the most romantic city was whichever one their SO was in.
I will notify the winners by email. Be sure to check your spam filters to make sure my email didn’t go astray and send your address if you haven’t already. Thanks to all who entered. And keep checking, as I have more giveaways coming soon!
WINNERS:
Michelle S.
Cheryl W.

What Happened to All the Great Quotable Movie Lines?
Michael Cieply has a fascinating piece in the New York Times about the movie lines we love to quote and why there don't seem to be any new ones. Look through all of the top ten lists of the year, and see if you can think of one quotable line from any of them. That doesn't mean they aren't well wri

George Clooney and the Cast of Downton Abbey
You don't have to be a fan of "Downton Abbey" (or "Mr. Selfridge") to love this hilarious spoof, with guest appearances by Jeremy Piven, George Clooney and the Absolutely Fabulous Joanna Lumley. [iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/ryo7fqdmcGQ?rel=0" frameborder="0"] [
