The NBA Finals will soon be underway and first-timers the Oklahoma City Thunder are in. The French Open is going on as well, though it will be without Serena Williams, who was upset early. We don’t know much about “Prometheus” with Idris Elba and Charlize Theron, but did we mention Idris Elba is in it? That’s all you need to know.
New Edition continues their nationwide tour, dropping in on the Midwest this weekend. For those of you who want to lay by the pool with a good book, best-selling author Francis Ray’s latest “When Morning Comes” has just been released. And for you theater fans, the Tony Awards air Sunday night. Whatever you do this weekend, be safe.

Idris Elba stars in this sci-fi movie that takes place somewhere in the distant universe. While the trailers don’t tell you much – and that’s a good thing – Ridley Scott of “Alien” film directed so you can figure he’s got the spooky, spacy, alternate universe thing down to a science. The acting talent includes Elba, Charlize Theron and hot Brit Michael Fassbender so there must be some storyline going along with all the action. And the movie is rated “R” so there must be some truly scary parts. Sounds like a great date movie to us.

We are not enemies, we are parents. And we are parents 1st. S/O to @monyettashaw for making Mason's bday memorable.
