Sounds like a movie  "Cedilla: the Hunt"   Anthony Quinn.

DR George,

I had mastered all these when I used WordPerfect, and haven't bothered to re-learn them for Word. Do you have a checklist with the various codes? Thanks.

As far as I know, it's not a "Word" function, but a Windows function (I have no idea about a Mac equivalent).  There's a program that's pretty much standard on any PC called "Character Map."  Usually, if you click on the "Start" button in your task bar, then go to "Programs," then "Accessories," it should be listed there.  If not, search for the file "charmap.exe" and that's it.  When you call it up, it lists all the fonts installed on your computer and all of the characters within that font.  When you click on a (non-regular) character, the Alt+ keystroke combination is shown on the bottom right of the window.  Hope this helps!

Limbo!  Mr. Mac Man and I did the Limbo - he's quite good at it.
Nice to know you've got a MacMan who's willing to bend over backwards for a customer!

No, no, no--everyone knows Cedilla Hunt starred Lloyd Bridges.  Remember, no groaning allowed here at HHW.

Let's not forget the two female leads in The Importance of Being Punctuated, Gwendolen and Cedilla.

Ah, yes, Tomorrow Never Dines.  Bond and Wai Thin (his Chinese counterpart) foil a fiendish plot by media magnate Roast Carver to starve the world while making them watch Emeril Live.

Started watching my Bollywood movie for the weekend, JAANI DUSHMAN....a very B-movie-ish horror film about a snake-woman who gets revenge on a group of college students.

Although the main characters are young college students, the actors playing them are all in their late 30s!

Dr Matth, I am sorry that your date was cancelled. I hope the same does not happen to me as I have an early date tomorrow with a guy I met at the New Years Eve party...his name is Heath...(yes, his mom was a fan of THE BIG VALLEY!).

Bruce I hope you get a second book store in NY and time it for Pennys show.

RLP I would be outraged if that happened to my sons.  No double standards for me and I find it very sad.

And I must go out now and get some foodstuffs.  I so wish I had something here to make but I just don't so I won't because I can't and I shan't.  I'll be back shortly.

I'm partial to "Soon It's Gonna Rain", as well...and I adore those great Jonathan Tunick orchestrations in the film version of "The Fantasticks."

I love that song. :D

I am reluctant to go to bed tonight for fear that on awakening tomorrow morning I will spend the entire morning reading posts from yesterday that were posted after I go to bed (even though it's not yesterday today, it's today and it won't be yesterday until tomorrow, does that make any sense ;-)

Yes ;D

Unclear on the concept?

My sister called this morning, complaining that her younger son hasn't been phoning lately (or returning her calls). I reminded her that the kid and his wife have a new baby, plus my nephew is trying to expand his business and is working long hours. I told my sister that she should really learn how to use a computer. Given my nephew's situation, it's so much easier to communicate via e-mail. A little later my sister phoned me back. She had a brilliant idea. My nephew could e-mail her - via me. (And I would then phone in the e-mails to her.)

JRand there must be a better photo of Joey Heatherton than that!

TCB Im chuckling over your post-glad the show went well.

Charles Pogue will you show us a picture of Tewkes in his rain slicker?

Will I ever catch up!  I must take a break and wash a few of the new pots and pans we purchased, inspired by Jose to rid ourselves of pealing Teflon pans.

Jane:  I'm sure plenty of parents would be mad as hell at any female teacher who "raped" their sons...but the police and the press and the juries always seem to go easier on the heterosexual female offenders than they do on any of the male offenders.

It's a double standard, of sorts, that implies that when a woman sexually abuses a child, it's somehow LESS significant than when a man does it.

I hate that!!

I realize there is a difference between "assaulting" someone and having consensual relations.  If I understand the law, a minor's consent has no validity in a courtroom.

And now for something completely different (almost a Spamalot reference!):

It's been two very strange days at work (today and yesterday).  We're getting an entirely new computer system and my department's (acquisitions) access was taken down yesterday.  The new system will not be available until Monday, unless something goes horribly wrong.  The new system (Horizon...and Windows-based) is the next generation of the old (Dynix...and Linux-based).  HOWEVER, there are some things that are not good.  Little things like you can't right click at all!  You can't highlight, copy and paste text!  Who in the world designs a program that's supposed to be Windows-based and makes it so you can't do those very basic Windows functions??  The other thing is that in Dynix, when I place an order for an item, it can take maybe 8-15 seconds per title.  In Horizon, we figure that it could potentially take as long as a minute per title!!  That's ridiculous!!  Which means we're going to have to substantially revamp our work procedures.  I hate that. :P

And the worst part is that the "training database" was not set up the way we're going to have the real thing set up.  It's so different that there really was no point to try and even use it.  We had their training, but it was almost like them saying "this is how you do the things that we want to show you" and not us being able to ask "how can we do this?" mainly because we don't know what we don't know and don't know what to ask. :-\ Very frustrating.

However, I am the kind of person who can let go of work when I leave (and it helps that I have that kind of job)!  I will have absolutely no problem NOT thinking about this at all this weekend. ;D When we get back to work on Monday, we will just have to deal with whatever we get.  As I've said to many people here, "It'll be what it'll be."

And now, I'm off to get something to eat.

Just stopping by one last time tonight.  I should have taken a picture of Bear when I put my bra on him on time as a joke.  Needless to say, he was NOT a happy dog.

He was very angry with Mom today for leaving him.    He sat on the couch and stared up into space when she tried to talk to him so I patted her arm and said "Poor, Mom, Bear is sooo mad at you!" and she pretended to cry.  He jumped down off the couch and came right over to her.  

I shall paraphrase what I told him, "It's better to be peed off then peed on."

Have a good evening all!
