Good morning. I had a very restless night, DRs, and may sneak back to bed for 15 minutes. But I did have a terribly interesting and VERY sexy dream about little old me and - wait for it - Mr. Gregory Peck. Why Mr. Gregory Peck, I don't know. I haven't watched any of his movies recently, haven't thought about him recently... But there you go - the mind is a mysterious thing. You'd think I would have been dreaming of wooden chickens.
Okay, 15 more minutes of sack time and the day begins.

Wooden chickens...chickens peck...Gregory Peck.  It makes sense to me.

5. MAME (OBC)

How could I forget.  Yes, add MAME to my list.  And FUNNY GIRL (though it's a toss up between the OBC and the ST)

Just one to go......

Probably a toss up between 1776 (OBC), FIDDLER (OBC).

The Chicken Dance - DtM - how appropriate.

Only one wedding I attended in the past two years here in Indiana did NOT include The Chicken Dance at the reception.

They tell us we will have a respite tomorrow, but a new storm will arrive on Thursday and stay through the weekend.  A big storm.  From the north.  

Yikes, indeed!

DR DanTheMan- thanks for suggestions re: telnet.  The computer does have hyperTerminal. And I think it might potentially be what I need.  But I'm having a hard time figuring out how to use it. :(

Btw, re: Phantom and limited release

I don't think it's an extremely limited release (those usually play at only one theatre here).  It's playing at a bunch, but far less than most movies.  I wonder if it's only in the big cities right now.

Don't forget TAR is on tonight (AMAZING RACE)!!!!

They showed a GREAT preview the other night.  Can't wait to see tonight's show.

Btw, did anyone see the Dynasty show the other night?  I started watching and thought it was hilarious.

Btw2, any opinions on last night's new shows: MEDIUM or WHO'S MY DADDY?  And will anyone be watching the new NBC sitcom COMMITTED?  It stars Montrealer Jennifer Finnagan (sp?).  So i'll probably watch it at least once.

Hi all - I've read the notes, but not the posts, which I'll catch up with later.  Just wanted to share my website for the new business with you all.  I finally have it up and ready to do business.  Feel free to check it out.
It's simple, but it will suffice.

Will be back later with the TOD, it's a good one!

I never did go back to bed. Sigh. Too much to do.

Dan TM - Interesting dream analysis. May I add I was  also called "peckerhead" by someone several times yesterday (fondly - I think) - so that may have contributed to my pleasant dream.

It appears you created the text in a Word Processor that converted regular quotes to "curley" quotes which the web site can not handle - plus it is having difficulty converting other style features like italics.

Also "guaranteeís" would not have any punctuation mark before the final "s".

I presume the symbol after "Vocal Coaching" is intended to be an exclamation mark.

DR Matthew, looks good but there are a few strange characters here and there (and I'm not talking about any DRs here.)  It looks like it occurs where ever you use a single quote or a hyphen.  You probably need to use some kind of html escape character to represent them in the code.

And I agree with DR JRand--get a pic of your smiling face up there!

We liked MEDIUM and plan to continue watching it.  There are two new episodes scheduled for the 6th and the 10th.  The pilot will be shown again on the 15th.

Matt H too bad you didn’t read the Washington Post review that Keith saw.  I hope you enjoy the show.

btw2, any opinions on last night's new shows: MEDIUM or WHO'S MY DADDY?  

I enjoyed MEDIUM and intend to watch it some more. Often shows of this type, with many "flashbacks" and "visions" have disconcerting jerky editing - this was not the case with MEDIUM.

I think the entire concept of WHO's MY DADDY is obnoxious; it exploits human emotion in a particularly manipulative and vicious fashion.  Jerry Springer had more class! What's next - jars of fetuses called "WHO'S MY BABY?"

Perhaps my judgement is colored because I am an adoptee and find the thought of someone toying with the possibility of meeting a biological parent for the amusement of an audience reprehensible!

der Brucer - who also feels show's of this sort will put more pressure on the system to "open" closed adoption records, which is a movement in itself that will encourage more abortions!

Thanks. DR's, for the heads-up on the punctuation.  The font is Arial, but for some reason, those charactors are not happening.  I may have to change the font or fix the punctuation using HTML, any thoughts?

It looks like it occurs where ever you use a single quote or a hyphen.  You probably need to use some kind of html escape character to represent them in the code.

Good point on the Hyphen - I guessed exclamation point, but considering that Word does a dash/hyphen substitution (together with ordinal nad fraction conversion, and plays with bold and italic formatting) your hyphen guess is better.

Word does have user controllable menu to stop it from being so damn "helpful"!

Re:  website characters.  If, like me, you did your webpages in Word and saved them with the "Save as a webpage" feature, you are now realizing Word is a little peculiar in that regard (well, actually, in several regards).  I had to completely retype my somewhat verbose Farmer essay and HTML code it myself to get it to work properly.  Ugh.

Re:  10 favorite CDs.  I don't think I could choose individual CDs, but I do have favorite genres:  Brasilian music, Celtic music, even Brasilian-Celtic music (there is such a thing, ask DR MBarnum!), of course OCRs and soundtracks, early music (I especially love Hildegard von Bingen, or Hildegard von Bingy Wingy as we fondly refer to her in the home environment), and your usual assortment of classical-type shtuff.


Re:  Medium & Who's Your Daddy.
 Well, I must confess, Betsy and I watched parts of WYD, decried its blatant manipulations and premise, and then of course teared up at the denoument (we're suckers, I admit it), and then switched to Medium, which Betsy liked more than I did.  I think it's interesting that Patricia Arquette ("How many Arquettes are there?" Betsy asked in disbelief last night) played a ghost in Holes (and one who left clues, at that) and now she's on the other side of the rainbow, so to speak.

This is a perfect bookend for me, because yesterday a major plot point was developed in my little writing experiment wherein a wizened old lady, after having met Our Hero, expires with these words:  "It is finished."   ;D
