It is Thursday here in Johnston SC.

Today promises to be enjoyable.  A friend from Fredericksburg VA is in nearby Edgefield to give expert audio forensics testimony in a murder trial.  He also happens to be the host of one of my weekly Zoom chats and just a heck of a nice guy. We met up a couple of months ago when he was here for pre-trial hearings, and we had lunch.  If all goes well, he will be testifying today, and we shall meet up for dinner. 

Other than that, I am hope-hope-hoping that some items I have ordered over the past week -- items that have been shipped -- will arrive in the mail today.


Good wishes for a speedy shipment, DR Ron Pulliam!

I am very curious as well about the trial!

I have seen the video my friend was asked to analyse.  It happened outside the Johnston Billiard Parlor (which is now closed).  A man in a car was being verbally assailed by a man standing outside the car near the entrance to the parlor.  It was a shouting match, apparently, between the owner (man outside) and man in car.   I believe the contention is that the man in the car had been in the parlor and was told to leave.  The owner was furious, evidently,  It is not audible to know what was being said by either man.  The owner would walk away and then come charging back.  He was holding something black in his hand.  He would pull up his shirt and point to something on his belt.  Could not tell if it was a gun or not.  Just when it appeared the confrontation was over and the owner was walking away, he suddenly turned around and charged at the car with his hand holding the unidentifiable object being pointed at the car.  What was visible was two (or three) gun shots fired at the owner.  He fell backward and reportedly died on the scene.

That's all I know. It has taken three years for this to go to trial.  Nobody has said much about it.   If the trial is open to the public I do not know.

Oh, my goodness! :-\

I am grateful for DR Jennifer asking me that question or I might never have joined Goodreads to keep track of my books for me.

I joined Goodreads a few years ago, too, so now I can know what books I've read. :)

John do you know how many books you read in a year?

I’m up to 123 this year.

:o I can't imagine reading that many in one year!

Back then, 2013, I read 156 books for the year. These days I read fewer books.

Wow!

Tonight, tonight,
I see West Side Story tonight.

I want to see it, but this walker is keeping me out of theatres. I look forward to your comments.

We have the CD on order, but I just went to Amazon and listened to the 30-second clips of the mp3's for each song -- and I am loving the sound of the orchestra. They don't seem to have based the orchestration on the huge forces in the first film; rather, a number of moments sound to these ears like a really wonderful orchestra playing the originals. There's a doodad added or modified here and there, to be sure, with no harm done. (I did hear one "thing" -- an extension of a couple of bars -- that I will hate if there isn't an impeccable justification for it on the screen.)

I've ordered the CD, also.  I'm really looking forward to it.

NASA TV aired a live stream of the Dec 4 2021 total solar eclipse, only viewable from Antarctica.  This is a real time video. To view the full eclipse portion, you can skip to approximately 1 hour, 7 minutes in..
