Do some people type by the pecan and peck method?

DR SWW - it's the thought that counts.

Also in today's headlines...

Quote
For the first time in the nation's history, more than half of Americans live in a city or state with laws mandating that workplaces, restaurants or bars be smoke-free, according to Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights.

Which raises a few questions for all the Dear Readers -

Do you smoke?

Have you quit?

What do you think of smoking being banned?

DR Elmo ~ MY little elusive web nymph, I'm grabbing the net before you flit -- let's hope I catch you ..  Any snow for the Big Apple?  We finally got some here in AZ.  It's been going north and east of here the past month as each storm came through.  Got an inch yesterday and an inch overnight.  Yeaaa -- we need moisture most greatly.  Hope all is improving with your dad.  Kiss, kiss, hug, hug.

Der Brucer and I both used to smoke.

I quit first.  I ended up gaining fifty pounds during the year after I quit.  Not that this was a bad thing - I only weighed 145 pounds at the time, stretched on a six-foot-two frame - not pretty.

Der Brucer landed in the hospital with pneumonia not too long after that, and decided not to smoke when he got out.

I don't mind being around people who smoke, but I don't like them smoking if I'm eating - it's one flavor component I can do without.

Interesting discussion of feuds on CBS Sunday Morning mentioned that Bette Davis and Joan Crawford weren't acting as if they hated each other in BABY JANE, they really hated each other.  Did they grow to hate each other during the filming of BABY JANE, and why?  Or did they hate each other even before, in which case why did they do the movie?

I do not smoke. I have never smoked. I do not generally hang around with people who smoke. I do not like to be around smoke.

But I understand that some people do smoke and that those who do choose to do so have a physical need to do so. I think places should be available for those who smoke to do so.

But I am glad they cannot in airports, hospitals, and in some places, restaurants.

I have read, DR FJL, that personal feelings aside, they both realized that is was a smart career move.  And both were promised preferential treatment by director Aldrich.

One commentator on feuds on the CBS Sunday Morning show said that one approach to putting feuds behind you can be if there's a practical reason to mend fences, in which case (if I understood correctly), if you can find that raeson to mend fences, you just don't acknowledge the past at all, just look to the future.  Interesting concept, I thought, one that never would have occurred to me frankly.

Good morning!

Cold again and overcast, but the wintry mix we were supposed to get today has been downgraded to mere rain which is a relief. I have huge old trees in both my front and back yards that I worry about when words like "ice" or "wind" are bandied about.

Fish notes?  Hmmmm, seems to me the topic of the day should be about fish, not pecan waffles and ducks. Since our Global Moderator (that sounds so powerful and omnipotent) didn't throw them out there, here goes -- and I, the lowly junior member, decree there are no limits on or to your answers:

1. What's your favorite fish to eat (and yes, you chefs can include how you like it prepared, and yes that includes shell fish if you like)?
2.  What's your favorite fish as a pet?
3.  What's your favorite fish in a lake, river or ocean?
4.  What's your favorite fish story (and that includes the one that got away)?
5.  What's your favorite movie about a fish?
6.  What's your favorite book about a fish?
7.  What's your favorite movie about a fish?
8.  What's your favorite song about a fish?

There, may we have tons and tons of lovely postings for fish notes -- and be at page 7 in the blink of an eye...

I have never smoked and never will. I'm amazed, however, that I didn't pick up the habit. Both of my parents smoked, so I was around it on a daily basis. But it has always been a turnoff for me.

Bette never liked Joan, but it was more a professional dislike: she didn't consider her much of an actress and found her publicity-seeking ways (adopting children for the headlines, taking moral stands on issues where she was a prime participant) repellant. She also found her a phony, sweetly charming on the surface and a viper behind your back.

Bette was all for Joan in BABY JANE. She knew they were cast well (she was preturbed knowing that director Robert Aldrich had had an affair with Joan years before BABY JANE was made and was afraid he'd favor Joan over Bette in his shotmaking) and knew the combination of their names had a chance to put them back on the Hollywood map.

But it turned into all out war after Bette got an Oscar nomination for JANE but Joan didn't. Joan get the OKs from all the actresses who couldn't attend the Oscar ceremony to accept the Oscar in their behalf, and as it turned out, Anne Bancroft won but was in NYC doing MOTHER COURAGE when she won, so Joan got the moment in the Oscar spotlight rather than Bette.

I still haven't decided what I'll watch after I finish WILD STRAWBERRIES this afternoon. I might go with the original MISSION IMPOSSIBLE on Blu-ray. It might be something innocuous like PETE'S DRAGON or WITH SIX YOU GET EGGROLL off the to-watch shelf. Just lots of possibilities.

Lots of new TV on tonight, too, including new episodes of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, BROTHERS & SISTERS, ROME, EXTRAS, and CROSSING JORDAN.

CBS is broadcasting a great majority of the NFL game during prime time, but WITHOUT A TRACE (a new episode) is still slated for 10 p.m. I'm guessing it will begin late.

Tonight is also the first episode on the GREASE relaity show where the semifinalists attend GREASE Academy. This should be interesting to see.
