Mickey Dolenz is currently in town playing Charlemagne in the PIPPIN tour.  The reviews haven't been enthusiastic for this production, but I might try to catch it this weekend anyhow.

As for Ask BK Day...

Is there something, some activity that you have never done that, at least according to the line of work you're in, the area you live, etc., that you "should" have done by now?

For example... Like many people who live in the Washington, DC, Area, I have not been to all the Smithsonian museums.  And I even like art!

My family lived in Colorado for four years or so and we never went to Pike's Peak.  We went to so many other tourist places all around Colorado (even the huge Colorado centennial/USA bicentennial celebration), but Pike's Peak was the one place that I knew of that we never went to. :)

I have a cold. It feels like an ear/nose/throat thing. I should have stayed home today but instead chose to sleep in then come in for a very important meeting.  I'm glad I did cause it went well and will hopefully lead to more positive things for one of my cases.

This morning we went for a walk in the snow with Sherlock and then Keith spent about an hour shoveling the hill portion of our driveway.  

The temps were rising & the sun was shining.  The plan was to bring my car up once all the ice had melted.  The fog rolled in, the sun disappeared & the temps began dropping again.  

Keith rushed out to get my car, with difficulty he managed to barely get it moving uphill.  Iím happy to report it is in the garage where it shall stay until tomorrow.

Too hard (the question, that's not the word).  I like "blessed",  I like "strange", I like "lucky" - but I'm open to others.

For BK, I would probably choose "relentless" or "undeterred." As a teenager, Bruce had a clear vision of what he wanted to do--at at age when most kids are totally clueless. (Or clewless, in HHW-speak.) Nothing stopped him. Where other humans fear failure, that never seemed to enter Bruce's mind. He simply proceeded. I've known many very talented people, but no one like Bruce!

Even if PASSIONS is cancelled in September, it's too long a wait for such an inept piece of lousy writing.


But...but....but....whatever will you watch that you can RANT so vociferously against if "Passions" goes away?

Now, if there's really a God, He'll see NBC cancels DAYS OF OUR LIVES and rid the world of more pathetic acting attempts.  I haven't heard such whispers and whines that pass as acting from its leads in a long time!


Ah....mystery SOLVED.

George you can go to Pikes Peak by webcam

I was going to attempt to put the link onto the word webcam but it is such a pain to quote anything or change the color, etc.  For some reason it doesn't work for me  I get

at the end of my sentence.

When I posted from the old computer at the NIH it worked just fine.

Thanks, Jane.  I'm leaving work early and Richard and I are going out to dinner at The Meadows, one of our favorite restaurants.
I was told they closed!

I had a very long telephone call late in the afternoon that prevented me from finishing the film I was watching. I love my friends, but for some where we don't talk for weeks at a time, there's so much to catch up with that a short conversation is just impossible.

I started my viewing this afternoon with last night's BOSTON LEGAL. Some really funny moments provided by William Shatner this week (I often find him irritating, but he made me laugh last night).

And I loved Shirley (Candace Bergen)'s summation in which the typical duties of a school teacher were listed.

Next came LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT. It was a rerun, but it had a gay-themed plot, so I wanted to watch it again. Absorbing episode.

Then, I got about a hour of TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT watched.

OMG! I didn't remember Lou Gossett OR Cindy Williams being in the movie! Of course, I hadn't seen it in probably thirty years.

The print on TCM was really pristine. I suspect Warners is going to release this on DVD this year since it looks like it's been cleaned up.

So, I have the rest of this movie to watch tonight along with last night's LAW & ORDER: SVU. That should take me to 8 p.m.

Monkees:

I transferred a Davy Jones LP to CD only a few days ago.

Mike Nesmith was the one with the talent.  His solo work was (is) excellent.

Jukebox -- Some great pop songs by Neil Diamond and Boyce & Hart.

Annette was in "Monkey's Uncle".  (Just an attempt to get JRand to read a post).

Major Lance thought it was Monkey time. So did George Michael.

This just in from VARIETY:


"NBC has renewed "The Office," "My Name Is Earl," "Heroes" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" for the 2007-08 season."



These are the first shows on any network that have been given the official go-ahead for next season. I'm sure the other networks will be following suit with their hits in the next few weeks.

The ratings for last night's IDOL: the second largest audience in the history of the series, and by far the highest rating any entertainment show has garnered on TV this season.

The only episode of IDOL that ever outrated last night's show was the Season 2 finale with CLay Aiken and Ruben Studdard.

Pretty amaaing that the audience keeps building for this show. After five years, you'd think there would be a peak, but that plateau doesn't seem to have been reached yet.

Nope, no plateaus with Idol.

Folks love seeing other people's dreams crushed and strewn all over major U.S. cities.

And there is a surplus of people quite capable of dreaming dreams impossible enough to be crushable and strewable.
