Watched a kind of nifty movie. THE NIGHT HOLDS TERROR (1955). Stars Jack Kelly, Vince Edwards, JOhn Cassavetes, and Hildy Parks.

I really like Jack Kelly. A writer friend of mine is working on Kelly's biography. I look very forward to reading it.

I remember seeing this when I was a kid.  Great thriller.

I wish it was on DVD.

Perky Breasts and her rich boyfriend ("I love you, babe" he shouted to her - they really talk loud over there) are part of a generation of the worst exhibitionists I've ever witnessed.

just be happy he is not showing off his shortcomings

I just put the finish on four wooden doors. I looked at the first one to see a hundred gnats glueing themselves to the still-sticky finish.

Joining out of nowhere. Haven't been on for a few days. Today was Benjamin Kritzer Day. I've just begun reading BK's books, starting at the beginning. I finished "Benjamin Kritzer: A Novel." As soon as I finished it I started "Kritzerland." Lot's of laughs and a touch of sentimentality. Since I am 5 years older than Bruce, I very much  ;)relate to these two books. Now I'm watching the news...like so much fish.  :)

Hi, Thom---good to see you again!

Edi - on the 4th you were talking about an asparagus recipe, I think.  Would you share the recipe?

JohnG, yes Betty Kean sings and dances in MURDER IN THE BLUE ROOM. She plays part of a threesome known as THE 3 JAZZYBELLES. They are the comedy relief of the picture (June Preisser and Grace McDonald are the other two).

And I love that you know who Betty Kean is! I think she is hilarious!
When my mother moved to the States, she came through New York on her way to Alabama. She saw one Broadway show, "Ankles Aweigh," with the Keans. I think her sister, Jane, is the one who introduced "Winter Was Warm" in "Magoo's Christmas Carol."

You can also call it "patina"!

Watching my third motion picture of the day - easy to do when they're all under eighty minutes.

http://www.culinate.com/content/3295/Sesame+Noodles+with+Asparagus+Tips

Tips: It's better with small, tender asparagus

When you pull apart the noodles (I used Ramen) do it in a bag, like a grocery store bag. Otherwise they fly all over the place!

This recipe serves A LOT...more than they say it will, especially if you're taking it to a pot luck.

Worked too many hours today and am totally exhausted. Just wanted to catch up. Thanks, DR Ginny, for the pix of DR Elmore's visit. Wish my brain were in gear to offer more. But, as it is, all I can say is, night, all.

Due to a conflation of misunderstanding and extremely stupidly poor customer service, Gabe and I are ensconced at the local tribal reservation hotel for one evening, since they would not completely cancel our reservation, since we decided to room with DW Wife Betsy's parents at their cabin.  But I must say I'm glad we're here--lovely air conditioned room, a cool tv special about Poirot and the Orient Express, and, finally, decent internet access after days of the very spotty HughesNet satellite service, which is buggy even when it's operating.

And so, since my internet service has been so off and on, Happy Birthday, Cilla!  Hopefully this will now post!  :)

It's raining. I hadn't watched the news so it surprised me.  I'm guessing that the painter won't be able to paint in the morning.

Perky Breasts was out there today again. 

If this keeps up, I'll have to come out for a visit.

Hi Jane.

Ventura is great.   The weather is just the best.

My new routine is to not drive at all on the weekend.  Saturday morning all errands are done by 8AM, the car gets washed and covered, and it's only walking from then on till Monday morning for work.   Most of the rest of Ventura is on bicycles.
