Do you know this movie from these few details?

Okay, I am trying to figure out what this movie is. If you know it please let me know. Sorry for the scant amount of details. The movie would be made in 1987 or earlier. It is a sci fi or horror that has a scene where a man comes into a room and sees a woman being sucked into an orb. He then kills another man who has the orb who bleeds green (I think) blood. That is all I've got.

Simple and beautiful cookbook layout examples?

I'm writing an Asian cookbook. The recipes are mostly finished, and I'm currently testing and narrowing them down to the truly tasty. It'll be self published for friends and family, so won't need to look truly fancy. But I'm stuck for inspiration as to design and layout. So I'm looking for examples of simple but beautiful cookbook page layouts. Preferably viewable online. Suggestions?

roasted peanuts serving suggestion

A soybean roaster has just given me a bag (about a pound) of freshly roasted, shelled peanuts, with skins still on. They are unsalted, somewhat larger than usual Spanish peanuts. Coincidentally, I'm probably going to meet a friend tonight, so how should I prepare these for eating with beer? Should I boil them, heat them in microwave, something else? I have various kinds of salt (Jane's, Lawry's, lemon pepper), Nawlins cajun seasoning, parmesan.
