    @Grog

    James Cagney was a very versatile and talented actor. You should definitely take a look at “One, Two, Three” also. It’s quite different from most of his roles.

    After the sadness I just read over on Endtown strip. I needed a good laugh. All he is waiting for is a breeze to float her away on gossamer wings.Then he can get back to doing man things.Like reading the paper. Scratching. Eating. Drinking beer and think about seeing something naked. Taste depends on how much beer is consumed.

    Janice has out done herself; this is so far over the top. The girls from the study group are coming and Janice can see the excitement on their faces, the flooder in the air, astonishing, higher than holy smoke, better than any shinny, this beats any of Mrs. Nimmer’s secrets, plus it’s on the front porch for the entire world to see. It’s no surprise they are having angel air pasta and wedding cookies for lunch. Janice is not sure her high heels were made for this, but performance is up and show goes on. Oh shut up Stan, aren’t the guy who came home last month without his pants, well aren’t you???

It was pretty much my only contribution to the party and I was so happy to do it, (by the way, Susan – you should really tell the little monkeys that putting edible glitter on banana peels does not make a well rounded diet for little guys, so I am bringing them a honey ant farm)

    “Yes, a little glitter can make all the difference.”++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++It certainly can! Janice looks great with glitter! Why…. I didn’t even recognize her!!! That glitter has taken at least 50 years off of her…better than the “Lifetime Lift”!

    I guess I will take Susan up on her offer to “glitterize” me for the next party! I just didn’t realize how much younger it makes you look!

    ===========You should definitely let Susan glitterize you! She can fix you up from head to toe and she never overdoes like some places. Why, people are constantly telling me I don’t look a day over 20. It’s gotta be the glitter! But whatever you do, don’t let Munky try to do your nails or anything! Just sayin’……..

    Across the Pacific, Action In the North Atlantic ,Angels With Dirty Faces, African Queen, The Big Sleep, Bullets Or Ballots, Casablanca, Crime School, Each Dawn I Die, G-Men, Key Largo, Maltese Falcon, Petrified Forest, Public Enemy, Roaring Twenties & White Heat are just a few of the others I haven’t mentioned already.

    All those old movies! I’d always prefer some of my favorite actresses (but I’d watch the Bogarts and Cagneys with my man if he chose. Nowadays he mostly watches Science channel and History. I just had a show about the early First Ladies recording tonight on CSPAN from 6-7, but they were in the midst of some economics of illegal immigration and I watched that as it recorded (tho’ I prefer to watch anything serious early in the day, to not disturb my sleep). It is now recording 7-8 as I expected so I’ll watch the Grant family tomorrow ;-).

    I also did not know that TMC or any would respond by showing requests- nice! I had asked many times for replay on PBS of a pair of light operas by Offenbach that aired way back the year before I started at Zenith and bought my first VCR (one of many Beta).

    @Grog, some of my DVDs overlap with yours but I long since stopped keeping track of them. I still have all my VHS as I’m too lazy to get them sorted and dispose. Many of my favorites I’ve since purchased on DVD. My favorite movies are not US made- big fan of Ken Russell and of his best leading man, Oliver Reed (now both diseased unfortunately) and there are a few Felinis that I particularly love.

    Me too. I had to turn on a light to see the keyboard. This weather is so darned delightful that I have to have fresh air all day long. I think my new diet may actually be helping with my allergies because just a few sneezes.

    My doctor cannot understand how I have so little change in my comfort and life with all these drastic resrictions in diet. It is almost as tho’ he thinks I’m cheating (if I do, I SAY so) and Tho’ he says that people who have at least 1-2 drinks every day can’t just stop and stay off (as I have) it IS TRUE! It is much harder to resist chocolate (which I did at the start, even tho’ I believe the ration I allow is GOOD). I was happier when he gave the OK to that. I have chosen not to travel during this (partly the expense of all the supplements) and missing my man (since Jan 21) is more difficult than any food!

I’ve seen African Queen and Casablanca and Maltese Falcon several times, and I watched Casablanca and Maltese Falcon quite recently. Public Enemy is the one where he was delivered, dead, to his family’s front door, right? That is one of, if not the most chilling scenes I’ve ever seen in my life. The ones I’ve figured I’d want to see again I’ve recorded onto a DVD from the tv, but I know your professional quality ones are much superior. But I’m not one to be highly ‘into’ such stuff. I don’t even care one way or the other about having HD. Hubby likes it though. But he doesn’t watch movies. LOL
