    Cat’s Eye (1985)
    aka Stephen King’s Cat’s Eye
    starring Drew Barrymore, James Woods, Alan King, Kenneth McMillan, Robert Hays, Candy Clark, James Naughton, James Rebhorn
    IMDb synopsis:
    Three horror-thriller tales revolve around a mysterious stray cat which is attempting to find a little girl in trouble. In “Quitters, Inc.”: the cat is picked up by a shady New York “doctor” who uses experimental techniques to get people to quit smoking. His latest client is a man named Morrison, who learns he’ll suffer some terrible consequences if he tries to cheat. In “The Ledge”: the cat is picked up by Cressner, a shady Atlantic City millionaire who forces tennis pro Norris (his wife’s lover), to walk a narrow ledge around his high-rise penthouse apartment. In “The General”: the cat arrives in Wilmington, North Carolina, where it is found by Amanda, the young girl it has been sent to protect. What she needs protection from is a tiny, evil troll who lives behind the skirting board in her bedroom.

    “Quitters” was a Stephen King short story that was included in “Cat’s Eye” a film anthology that starred among others, Drew Barrymore. It concerns a man who after repeated attempts (and his wife’s nagging) to stop smoking, is put onto a group that “guarantees” results. He joins up,little realizing that “Quitters” is Mafia run and isn’t above using the most Draconian tactics (including watching his wife being electrocuted)to obtain the result.

    something like, A man who carries a cat by the tail, lerans a lesson which he can not learn in any other way. And so it is sometimes with the lessons in our own life. I do not condemn anyone who drinks. I however, like to think of Romans 8:1-17. We are no longer to be controlled by our sinful nature, but we have an obligation to live according to the Spirit of God. If we can teach other people to do that just by modeling it, that could save a lot of pain. However, sometimes a person can learn only by one way. How do you learn? How do your children learn?

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
