Voldemort is basically a middle school girl: he has a locket, a diary, a tiara, a ring, and is completely obsessed with a teenage boy.

DR Jeanne, wow, what a story your mother had.  I never did find out why my mother who was being raised Jewish by her stepfather was sent to a Catholic boarding school for awhile.  I have no idea how long she was there or if her older sister was with her.  I'm sure the younger, biological sister of the stepfather was not sent there.

My mother mentioned a few times how mean the nuns were and how hard it was.

The VIPs is one I have never seen, and this is not the first time I've been reminded of that.

I saw Maggie Smith for the first time in this film.  She was a revelation and should have been Oscar-nominated for it.  She steals all her scenes.

I still haven’t seen the film of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. It was never released on DVD that I know of.

It was on Netflix.  I don't know if it's still available, though.  Do you have that?  If not, let me know. ;)

I don’t have Netflix.

When has she not stolen her scenes?

Started watching Lost Empires, based on a J.B. Priestley novel. It was one of the author's personal favorites of his, but not mine. Yet I am enjoying the series. Colin Firth in a very early role, and Sir Laurence Olivier in a minor role.  Handsome and a great eye for post-WWI  detail.

LOL.  Do you actually like it?  If I drank coffee I can't imagine that I would drink instant coffee.

Thanks.  Have you read The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara?  Gettysburg with Michael Sheen was an excellent  film based on the book.

When we lived in Pennsylvania we went to Gettysburg and I purchased the book in the gift shop.  I still think it is the best Civil War book I have read.

I don't like those.  I hope it helps.  I advise aking something to keep your muscles relaxed during the MRI.

Nescafe Tasters Choice House Blend instant coffee is really good (IMHO, of course :) ) - not just really good for instant coffee, it's really good coffee.

I rarely drink coffee, but I got it at Fred Meyer on their discounted shelf, and it looked kinda hoity-toity, so I assumed that it would be better than the average instant coffee.  I was wrong. :-\

In Europe, the only decaf available is instant. I can drink Nescafe if I really want a cup.  I don't like all those reports I read tying cheap decaf with Parkinson's.
