DR Jane - your first photo (the one with the bridge) would make a nice spinescape, too!

Thanks for the tip.  Your nails may not be bending anymore, but do they still chip or break?

Sorry that's what i meant. They don't break.

I mean that is not to say that they cannot break (i accidently cut one with a knife). Obviously no product will help that. :)

There is also a special file they have that is supposed to help. But i don't have that. They just seem much stronger. And in time it's supposed to make them very healthy.

I will say one thing though. You are not supposed to wear nail polish when starting the treatment. It works better on clean nails.

I would often wear a french manicure (white tips and clear polish) but i have stopped doing that for the month i've been using the product.

Also, they apparently sell a fantastic nail polish remover that doesn't strip your nails like regular ones do.

I realize this sounds funny since i just said that you are not supposed to wear nail polish. But they sell special polish too (which i also don't have).

I was just getting so sick of my nails breaking every week. I don't wash dishes (i use a dishwasher). But still when you have to wash pots and stuff. It was just getting so bad that i would have one or two broken at all times. :(

Our brand new 2008 World Book just appeared on the shelf and its spinescape is a stunning cityscape.  Upon closer examination, I realized it's NYC!

Evidently it comes in the same "smiley-box" format as the new DVD of How the West Was Won.   ;D

I am hoping DR Jose was off by one letter, or else the TSA has gotten a lot more lenient with carry-ons.    ;D

He was off by one letter, all right.  The woman had a personal, pint-size replica of baritone Nathan Gunn.  And that's a lot of popping and snapping!

Actually the TSA does indeed screen train passengers, though not as routinely as they do air passengers.  We've encountered them twice on our cross-country train trips.

Here's a whole Gaggle (and/or Google) of stories of TSA screening Amtrak:

The agents were there at Union Station for their random bag checks.  However, there's still no x-rays or metal detectors in use.

Grim details about your salary, MR BK.  By not paying royalties, they are getting a GREAT advantage.....royalties can count for up to 50% of the production costs for some musical theatres!

Had a nice lunch and an even better visit with my friend Jeff. His job situation is in limbo, and I'm just SO grateful I never had any of these worries when I was working.

From what I read in the press announcement, only the Blu-ray disc is going to offer HOW THE WEST WAS WON in a smilebox format. The sDVD will be a regular anamorphic transfer only.

I spent the afternoon with DVDs of various INDIANA JONES movies.

I began with finishing the bonus features on the RAIDERS DVD. This involved a documentary on how they accomplished the "melting face" special effect" in that climactic moment of the movie. Very interesting since they didn't have CGI to help them accomplish it back then.

There were a whole bunch of step-through galleries involving the marketing and behind-the-scenes photos of cast and crew at work and at leisure.

And there was a storyboard sequence of the "Well of Souls" sequence with the movie playing in a small window below the storyboard illustrations for the sequence.

Well, in that case I'm safe, because I have absolutely no love for those damned two dollar bills.

Next I put in INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM which most everyone (including the creators) considers the least of the INDY movies. I decided to watch the bonus features this afternoon and wait until tonight to actually watch the feature.

Since I've seen the movie countless times, it's not like the bonuses were going to spoil anything.

There was a recently shot introduction to the film by Spielberg and Lucas (about 6 minutes), but the best of the bonuses was a documentary on all the creepy crawlies used in each of the three films and how animal wranglers were helpful (snakes, rats, spiders) or useless (bugs) during the making of the films.

They suggested that the fourth film is going to feature another creepy crawlie not used already in the films, but they didn't go into detail. What could it be? Ants? Preying mantis?

There was also a similar storyboard sequence with this disc - this time, the miner cart chase sequence.

And there were more step-through galleries with promotional materials, stills shot behind the scenes, production design sketches, etc.

I finished my afternoon watching last night's LAW & ORDER: SVU. Robin Williams was the guest star playing a perp about five steps ahead of the police at every turn. Kind of preposterous actually with all the advanced preparations ready to be called on at a moment's notice, but it was still entertaining.
