I just did something I've never done before - sent an email, via her website, to Oprah.  Yesterday's show featured frump-to-glam makeovers and they did something that really annoys me.  At least 2 of the "befores" were wearing glasses and, of course, as "afters" they were not.  It really peeves me when our culture wants to frump somebody up, they put glasses on them and when they want to unfrump someone, off come the glasses.

Yes, it's a bit too easy, isn't it?

I have two words for you.....Cuddle Duds. Best long underwear for women you can get. They are thin but warm. The key is layers and covering all exposed skin outside.  Also keep your feel warm. It makes a huge difference. In the house put a throw blanket over you when you're sitting or on the couch. It makes a huge difference.

CUDDLE DUDS??!! I've never heard of such! I will most definitely look for some. Since this could be called an underwear-oriented website--UNDERPANTS!-- I will say that the wool longjohns are warm, but are also thick. I'd like to find some socks that are warm but thin.

As for the throw while on the couch, I use two! My den is small and it's impossible to avoid the draft. Ah, the concessions I make to live in this wonderful old house.

Thanks for the tips.

DerBrucer-Cool pic of the day.

Cillaliz-Yes, watch THE CLOSER from the beginning if you can.

Jeanne-I live in Cuddl Duds most of the year.  Here is a sample link to purchasing them on-line…. http://www.barenecessities.com/search.asp?drv=11968&mode=1&cm_mmc=GLSR-_-cuddl%20duds-_-CuddlDuds-_-A&source=GoogleA&term=CuddlDuds&gcid=S11853x026&keyword=cuddl%20duds


Thanks, Jane. You saved me some time.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Rawhide!
Hah! Hah!

Keep rollin', rollin', rollin',
Though the streams are swollen,
Keep them dogies rollin', rawhide.
Through rain and wind and weather,
Hell bent for leather,
Wishin' my gal was by my side.
All the things I'm missin',
Good vittles, love, and kissin',
Are waiting at the end of my ride.

Move 'em out, head 'em up,
Head 'em up, move 'em on.
Move 'em out, head 'em up:
Rawhide.
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in,
Ride 'em in, cut 'em out,
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in:
Rawhide!
Hah! Hah!

Movin', movin', movin',
Though they're disapprovin',
Keep them dogies movin', rawhide.
Don't try to understand 'em,
Just rope an' throw an' brand 'em.
Soon we'll be living high and wide.
My heart's calculatin',
My true love will be waitin':
Waitin' at the end of my ride.

Move 'em out, head 'em up,
Head 'em up, move 'em on.
Move 'em out, head 'em up:
Rawhide.
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in,
Ride 'em in, cut 'em out,
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in:
Rawhide!

(Rollin', rollin', rollin'.)
(Rollin', rollin', rollin'.)
Hah!
(Rollin', rollin', rollin'.)
Hah!
(Rollin', rollin', rollin'.)
Rawhide.
Hah!

I've always loved the Rawhide theme song. The Ten Tenors sometimes do it in concert--would love to hear them do it.

DR Jane - there's a library parody of that song about the process we use to cull our collections.  It starts out "Weedin', weedin', weedin'..."

We H/Ks who have too much stuff can sing/hum/whatever that while culling.

The amazing thing about watching THE CLOSER from the beginning is watching the squad who initially resents her and has a rooting interest against her slowly comes around person by person in being won over by her expertise. It's heartening to see it happen bit by bit so that by the end of the season, as DR Edi and I were mentioning earlier today, I was in tears seeing the team really come together as a unit bound by respect and trust.

When I went back down, I put in the CHICAGO Blu-ray and watched some of the special features on the disc. Most of these weren't on the original disc that I had, so I enjoyed watching them.

IDOL/San Antonio auditions:

Same old, same old.

But I was shocked that a really wonderful singer early in the show (came dressed well, had a really nice demeanor) with a better and more distinctive voice than Katherine McPhee, and she BARELY made it to the next round. None of them were overly complimentary, and her voice was pure and true! Later singers they praised to the skies, and I found them barely tolerable.

HOUSE was back in its winning formula of a mystery illness that seems to defy diagnosis. Enjoyed the show a lot, but I couldn't place the actor playing the teenager who was ill. I know I've seen him in a major role lately (that long, floppy hair of his was something I remembered), but I couldn't place him at all.

DIRT had a lesser episode for me tonight, well, that is until we got the shocking revelations of the final few minutes.

They've dragged the Julia storyline out much longer than necessary. I can't believe the star of a popular sitcom wouldn't have agents, managers, a lawyer, or a publicist who'd have gotten her into rehab long before she got hooked on heroin, especially when their meal ticket was put on hiatus from her series.

As with "High Noon's" title song, , Frankie Laine did not sing "The Hanging Tree" in the movie of the same name.  It was Marty Robbins .

I also got THE HEIRESS, THE CLOCK, and DO NOT DISTURB in the mail today, so there's plenty to watch now.

I also noticed that Woody Allen's MATCH POINT (which I haven't seen yet) has finally landed on HBO rotation. I think the HD version comes on Friday, and I have the DVR set to pick it up.

Yes, some Canadians I know practically brag about how it gets to 40 below. But they also all go to Florida frequently.

and walk around in shirt sleeves when they are shivering at 60

From the imdb regarding Frankie Laine's performance of the Blazing Saddles title song:


"When Mel Brooks advertised in the show business trade papers for a "Frankie Laine-type" voice to sing the title song for Blazing Saddles (1974), he expected a good imitation of the real Laine. Instead, Frankie Laine himself showed at Brooks' office two days later, ready to do the job. He got the job and sang the Oscar-nominated title song again at the Academy Awards the following year."

Wow...it's 9:13 (according to my official clock) and I'm still at work!  WHY??  

Since I don't know, I'm going home. :)

Until later!

What a wonderful singer that Frankie Laine!

I wrote to him about ten years ago when his wife, actress Nan Grey died...she was always a favorite of mine. He sent back a very nice response.
