We watched Gilda on Saturday. Having never seen it, I must say I was impressed. Miss Hayworth was great and both her numbers were dynamite. I didn't expect the ending.

Spoiler Alert.





I thought one of them (Glen or Rita) would end up sleeping with the fishes (metaphorically).

Last night we watched an AWFUL (IMHO) Doris Day movie I had never heard of called Caprice. The leading man was Richard Harris.

It was a spy spoof done in 1967. Her rat bastard husband, Marty Melcher was one of the producers. He must have owed somebody a favor. Boy, was it bad. It wasn't even funny bad or campy bad, it was just bad. I'm not surprised I never heard of it.

Drew Casper was in one of the talking heads section calling it an under appreciated movie. What a pile of bull. It's a bad movie.

The weather yesterday was gorgeous and it's supposed to be the same today.

Oatmeal, walnuts, a plum and cinnamon. And a cuppa coffee.

Bye for now.

Good morning all!

Well, I head from Angie at Angie's list.  She said they are having a problem finding folks to donate to my cause.  I asked a about Lowes and she said that they declined to help.  Boo on Lowes.  Maybe if someone needs to post something on their Facebook page they might change their mind.

No much else going on.  Had another laugh at work yesterday if I told you about you would shake your head in wonder.

Vibes to all who need them.   Lest we forget, today is 9-11.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all who lost someone on this date, be it 2 legged or 4.

Have a wonder filled day.

Good morning, all.

Up too early, and it goes without saying:  coffee!

May it be a GOOD day for all.

Good morning, all! Eleven years ago today, I was sitting in London's Henry Wood Hall, working on a recording of Victor Herbert's LADY OF THE SLIPPER with a great cast and chorus, the London Sinfonietta, and an insane conductor. When Maestro McGlinn got too irritable, to egocentric, George Dvorsky and Hugh Panaro, our leading men, went up to the manager's office to kill the time peacefully watching television. They shortly came down to report that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. Since McGlinn was raging at everyone, I decided to follow them back upstairs and watch the events.  For all I knoew, some small aircraft had lost control and hit the building. I had no idea it was the end of an era.

I wasn't in Manhattan, but I imagine the day was a beautiful one, similar to today. I will shortly head down to Toyland. I hope I hear today about this crew showing up. I'm out Thursday, and I would like it it finished by Monday.

Also, no word on my apartment AC either. Frustration!

I am feeling under the weather, and perhaps it's thechange in the weather? When I went to bed, I thought I was getting sick and I slept poorly. I feel better now but I'm treading cautiously.

As I'm preparing to head out for Toyland, the roster of Trade Center victims began. They just mentioned my friend Myra Aronson, who lived in Boston, not Manhattan. She was a passenger on the first plane that hit the Trade Center. Myra was a Miami University student who lived for years with my college friend Matthew. When they broke up, Matthew moved to Brooklyn and I don't see him often enough. He was the principal heir in Myra's will. She was a good lady.

DR BEN I am running the SPYBOT from the link you gave me a couple of weeks ago to get rid of Text Enhance!  My fingers are crossed that it will work.  Thanks.

Good Morning!

I'm up, I'm up... And I really should have slept in another hour or so before heading to the airport. But I'm here.

He Serves Time And Is Finally Released. He Finds Out That The Man He Supposedly Killed Is Still Alive. So He Pursues Him And Kills Him. He Can Not be Tried Again For The Same Crime,

Any Ideas?

Because Fall SETC is scheduled for the week after Labor Day, I usually end up flying around the anniversary of 9/11, or, like today, right on it. In fact, I was in the air from DCA to MCO on the One Year Anniversary.

It still feels a little strange to be flying on a day like this. However, there's also a sense of resiliency and maybe even courage knowing that life has continued to go on, and that in some respects, it's business as usual at the airports.

Tuesday morning greetings!  As I was 11 years ago today, I'll be in Dayton most of today.  Noontime meeting with the grantwriters, then coffee with one of my favorite former co-workers.  Sue and I were together in telephone reference when news of the first plane came across the wires, so it seems fitting to spend some time together today.  She retired earlier this summer.

Tuesday morning greetings!  As I was 11 years ago today,

I'm a little groggy from grabbing an extra bit of sleep, and read that as "I was 11 years old today..."

I was riding a bus to the county courthouse when I noticed that the flags were flying half-staff at the Army reserve. I watched the events the rest of the morning on the jury assembly room television.

I don't know about the movie, Arnold Brockman. But you've come to the right place! I'm sure someone here will know the answer.
