My friend Craig came through his surgery well. He's now waiting to hear if the tumor was benign or not. Thank you all for the vibes for him.

According to Wikipedia, "At Long Last Love" is available online through Netflix:

"To date, there has never been a home video release of the film in any format, though it became available to stream online in early 2011."

And this is only for the few of us who care.

Just spent the last two hours translating one of the sections of "Song of Roland" from the original French. The words were surprisingly more like old English than modern French and easier to understand. But some words were just not like anything else, either English, French, German or glossolalia.

Well, darn! I need some Vel to make my hands as soft as a rose.

I remember Vel.  Our next door neighbor always had it.  Oh, does this mean I'm old?

It's 87 degrees and very humid and windy here today. A cold front is about to move through.  This is tornado weather, hopefully if any touch down they will be in the middle of nowhere.

I made a trek to Home Depot and stocked up on paint for my summer projects, well at least for several of my outdoor projects.  It's time to restain the garage.  I think I got 2 gallons of stain, it won't be enough to do the whole thing, but will be enough to do the part that is visable from the road.  I got paint that matches that stain to put on the bottom of the gazebo (chocolate brown) and will paint the trim of the gazebo to match the white trim around the house.  Not sure if I'll do the inside with white or brown.  Waiting to see what I think when I get to that point.  It's white now. so that was a gallon of brown and a gallon of white.   Finally, I need to paint the deck again because of the new wood added last year, so I got a gallon of primer and a gallon of paint. 

Home depot has their $5 per gallon rebate, so I decided it was time to stock up.  I may need more for a couple of the projects and still need to get paint to do the upstairs den, but it's a start.  Now that I have the paint, whenever I get in the mood to do it, I'll be ready.  We haven't had good enough weather yet.  When we do, I'll get out the powerwasher, and get everything prepped then go for it.

Joe set up a facebook page to let people know how he's doing.  He has his story of the day of the tornado...wow.  Anyway, you can friend him at Joe Royer  (the one from Joplin Mo) or you can find him through my facebook page.

My day's work is done.  I have reviewed CYRANO de BERGERAC, THEODORA and, just for good measure, DANCE IN THE VAMPIRE BUND.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it.  ;)

Good Afternoon!

A few hours ago, my friend, Yosh, said he was heading down to the Union Square Greenmarket. So, instead of falling asleep on the couch, I went ahead and joined him.

Enough kicking around the block of DR MBarnum! I hope he is having a good day, wherever his mind may be.

He should be arriving home soon if he isn't there yet.

I would like to virtually salute our men and women of the Armed Forces, as well as remember my own dear, departed father, Major General Michael B. Kauffman.

As some of you may remember, my Dad was a technical advisor on PATTON (he was one of Patton's battalion commanders).  The character of "Coughlin" in the movie may or may not have been based, albeit slightly, on my father.  We were invited to the Seattle World Premiere, where my father was one of the VIPs.  The premiere had an honest to goodness pipe organ prelude and all the hoo-hah that used to happen in those days--the organist rose up on a big hydraulic lift, I remember.

When the movie started, my Dad leaned over and whispered, "That looks like Patton, but it sure as hell doesn't sound like him--he had the whiniest high voice you've ever heard."  :)

Yes, I know I've told that anecdote before, but that's never stopped me.

it is worth retelling.

Once we got down to the Union Square Greenmarket, we dropped some things off at the Composting stand as well as at the Textiles Recycling stand.

Oh, and we sampled some fresh-from-the-field strawberries. -Very good, but I'm guessing by next week, they should be at their peak-of-flavor.

Speaking of coming attractions, I'm happy to report that it looks like my brother-in-law has finally secured permanent employment at a major L.A. trailer producing firm, after several years of having to freelance in the wake of the economic downturn.  We're really excited and happy for him, it's been a very tough couple of years.

that's great!  does he have a position for Craig ;)

DR George, CHRISTOPHER AND HIS KIND was a wonderful biography, but I like everything I've read by Isherwood. If you've never read THE BERLIN STORIES, "Mr Norris Changes Trains" and "Goodbye to Berlin," you should. When I was in high school, I began reading the literary sources of my favorite and not so favorite musicals. I've never read Seven and a Half Cents, but I've read the sequel about making the musical, Say, Darling. I remember the following:
    Tenderloin
    Candide
    Prettybelle
    The Sisters Liked Them Handsome
    The Once and Future King
    The Happy Time
    Meet Me In St Louis
    Flower Drum Song


There were more; my mind's thinking about Victor Herbert!

I think I will check out Isherwood's original books...and some of the others. :)
