Back from lunch with Cason, and now on my way to the post office.

I wonder if bk seized the opportunity for product placement revenue?

He had the perfect opportunity with Starbucks!

I have to admit that when Cason squeezed out the more than healthy amount of sunblock, My DH and I were afraid that one of the dancers might slip on it on stage!

Yes to both questions.

1. DVDs being a digital medium have the potential to look very good on HDTVs, and with the right players and a good DVD transfer can look close to HD in quality. VHS tapes can be viewed, of course, but they are so low in resolution that they're never going to look as sharp and clear as a DVD.

As for HD-DVDs (and Blu-ray discs) on non-HD sets, the players have the capability to downconvert the 1080p images via any of the video outputs (composite, S-video, component, HDMI) to 480i which analog TVs can read. (Though why anyone would ever want to do this, I can't imagine.)

Thanks - wel,l I was wondering as we do not presently have an HDTV but presumably will have to get one sometime in the future when our present TV finally bites the dust,  whether all the DVDs we own now would be rendered useless.... also I was wondering if they start only putting out new DVDs inthe HD format (as I assume they will start to do at some point, just as VHS seems to have disappeared from the new reelases) if I will still be able to watch them on my current TV

My Angela Stevens interview is in the current CLASSIC IMAGES and Cal Bolder interview is in the current FILMFAX. I think that is all at the moment.

I am picking one up tomorrow!

Now I must drive the Vixter to church for her confirmation class to be followed by a basketball practice (it helpsfieor scheduling that almost all the team members are also studying confirmands)

Hopefully the one mile drive will not exhaust me

From last night:

DR Singaling, the cats still haven't been introduced to the porch yet. We have to install a doorknob that latches so they won't be able to push open the door and get out. Greg has been working non-stop since we got back, and I am clueless in matters of carpentry.

DR Cillaliz, my cats do take naps, but would prefer that we played with them 24/7.

They did the CAT scan today. I hadn't been eating or drinking very much since Saturday so to have to drink all that barium and then more after I got there, well, not enjoyable.

And they did another test at the same time which involved injecting iodine into my vein (this time the tech did better.) They said they'd call with results in the next few days. I was exhausted and came home and took a nap, and now I'm back editing again.

Td, how is Evil Twins DC Sylvester doing?  Please send my best of vibes the surgery solves the problem.  It didnít use to.  I hope it has a greater success rate these days.  I also know how painful & horrendous the condition is that leads to the surgery.  I wonít go into detail about our poor boy Sinbad.

Remodeling home stretch vibes appreciated--the floor guy should finish sealing the floors today (a bit smelly, but at least quieter than the sanding phase, which was G-dawful).  He's using a supposedly environmentally friendly water-based sealant, which makes me wonder what the non-environmentally friendly stuff smells like.  

It is horrendous and you have to move out of the house while they are doing it.

Congrats on approaching the final stretch :)

Featured on one of MR BK's CD's you know.  ;D

And if I remember correctly, it was a rendition that created quite the controversy. ;)

I thought it was absolutely hysterical! ;D

A few of the neighbors are coming over to help us finish the cheese cake I served yesterday.  I should straighten up a bit first.

Back from errands and am happy to announce our newest edition to the fundraiser - Miss Vicki Lewis.  Wonderful.

I loved her on "News Radio" and on the various CDs for BK! :D

Sorry to be errant an truant, but I had no choice.   This site has intoduced me to angels and lovable scoundrels and amazingly talented people.  DR Laura, Sandra Jeremey are three such angels and deserve the HHW Academy Award and Nobel Prize.  They have gone beyond the call of duty to take care of me.  I am lucky indeed to know them! My leg seems to weigh about 500 pounds but other than that, I shall appreciate my luck.  I need  to lie down now and rest my 500 pound leg.

Since I have to be at work very early tomorrow (six in the morning counts as such), I've already put dinner in the oven.  

Boneless pork ribs and sauerkraut, to which I've added sliced apple and a couple of sweet peppers from the bunch I picked up at Tuesday's farmer's market.  Topped the whole mess with lots of caraway seeds and fresh black pepper, wrapped foil over the cooking vessel, and slid it all into a 300 degree oven where it will stay for a couple of hours.  (For der B and myself, this counts as dining early).

To be accompanied by mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy.

Good Evening!

So... While walking up from Ripley-Grier though Times Square on my way up to Columbus Circle, I noticed a couple of "interesting" things.  There were cops standing in front of almost every theatre.  And on 45th Street where there are currently three or four shows loading in right now, both sides of the streets had a pretty visible police presence.  And as I watched some people coming out of various stage doors, they all seemed to be carrying big bags filled with personal items and/or their instruments.  Hmm.... :-\
