You're going to Langers for lunch?  You lucky dog!  I can smell the pastrami!!

Do you have a decent NY deli in KY?

Austin's deli's are just so-so.  Nothing like Los Angeles.  And, they have no idea as to what is rye bread.


I have to ship from Zingerman's or shop when I'm in L.A.  Same goes for Challah which I am perfectly capable of baking except I'm too lazy.

Speaking of Zingerman's, most of all I like their Ginger Jump-Ups (cookies).

Absolutely disgusting papparazzo from TMZ re:  Natasha Richardson.  Shoving a camera in relatives' faces and asking "How ya feelin' about dis?"  I turned it off after about 5 seconds.

The photos, especially of the children, were bad enough.

The massive job cuts that we knew were coming at my DH's workplace arrived today.

He survived.

So far.

Whew!!        :P

I must admit, I got a bit teary when I heard his voicemail.

We just got word that the Los Angeles loan docs are being ordered today, so we should be funded and close by the first part of next week.

Yay!

 ;D

Yay! :)

DR MBarnum - It really should be plug-n-play.  Are you at least able to plug your ethernet cable directly from your modem into your computer/laptop for "wired" access?

I am able to do that with my lap top, however I moved my PC into the dining room and it is now too far away from the modem to plug into it.

I did find out from Comcast that I needed to reset the modem, which they kindly did for me yesterday evening. That helped and at least during the set up it finally recognized the modem

....but my final try last night, after going through all of the steps that the Netgear cd disk asked of me, the very last page on the disk was blank...so I could not figure out if I was done (evidently not, since no wireless worked) or if there were further instructions.

Wednesday afternoon greetings!  I've just returned from my monthly get-together with my volunteer administrator friends and some errands in the Dayton area.  It is summer-like here and I used the AC in the car.

DR MB does your PC at least detect your wireless network?  What type of device is your PC using to connect (a network card or a USB device?)

Last night I watched THE QUIET MAN on TCM and a question occurred to me:  exactly what kind of material was John Wayne's shirt made out of in that scene during the thunderstorm in the cemetery?

DR MBarnum - Did you reset your modem by pushing in the little button - usually with a pencil or paper clip?

Is the problem with your wireless router? or with your computer? or both? ;)

When you get home tonight, just try unplugging everything power-wise, as well as the phone/cable line from your modem and/or router.  After a few minutes, plug everything back in, and then see what happens.

This very afternoon I am [finally] going to pick up my new, first-time progressive lenses.

I wonder if I'll be able to drive myself home?     :P

Well, at least I've got my current eyeglasses, just in case.

I rarely use my progressive glasses when driving.  I prefer to use my distance only.

There is still conflicting reports about Natasha Richardson.

Has anything been confirmed yet?

There are confirmed reports now that her family has taken her off life support.  :(

An official public announcement is supposed to made sometime this afternoon.

I had some company around lunchtime, and while I enjoyed the visit, I got behind on my viewing and work schedule.

I did watch last week's SMALLVILLE. What a nutty plot, but I guess Clark had to see for himself that he couldn't be open to the world about who he is. Too many people in his orbit would be adversely affected.

I spent the majority of the afternoon watching Roberto Rossellini's IL GENERALE DELLA ROVERE. It was made in 1959, long after his neorealist period. This is clearly a studio-bound film, but a generally excellent one. Really enjoyed it. The transfer is, apart from a few hairs, very beautiful.

There are four interviews among the bonus features, and I managed to watch the first two of them this afternoon. Isabella Rossellini and her brother Renzo talked about their father and their memories of the film. Isabella was only 9 when the movie was released, but Renzo served as assistant and second unit director so he had a good many stories to tell.

Very interesting, thank you.

...And since George Gershwin spent a good chunk of time down here in Charleston - Folly Beach - writing "Porgy & Bess".  In fact, members of the family of Dubose Heyward - who wrote the original play - are supporters of Charleston Stage, and Julian Wiles, the founding and artistic director of CSC, also wrote a play called "Gershwin at Folly" which chronicles the time that George Gershwin spent here.
