I won’t be commenting tomorrow, and possibly not Saturday either.
The plan is to go through this place so I can eat a meal on the floor and get satisfaction knowing my garbage bag and twist tie inventories match.
I’ll be back on Sunday for sure.
I’m posting this for two reasons. It’s actually 1 minute and 9 seconds of “pretty boring” if you haven’t even the remotest reason to watch.
1) It’s the home of our favourite basset.
2) I’m pretty sure the building lit in blue appears in more than one of Nighthawks’ creations. It can be seen right from the opening shot, so you don’t need to watch much of the video.
I suggest turning off your sound too; the music is terrible.
By this article, in the human world this was based on a real life events which happened to Christopher Emmanuel “Manny” Balestrero (1909-1998).
This is Alfred Hitchcock in what I presume is a trailer for the movie. It’s listed as the prologue referred to in the article above, but it doesn’t have that feel to me. (2 Minutes 32 Seconds)
He was finally exonerated, but nothing was the same.
And all you drank was root beer anyway.

1 ounce Kahlúa
1 ounce Galliano
1 ounce lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon superfine sugar
3 ounces cola
In a shaker half filled with ice cubes, combine the Kahlúa, Galliano, lemon juice, and sugar. Shake well. Strain into a highball glass almost filled with ice cubes. Top with cola. Stir well. Yes, it tastes like root beer.
This is a shaker.
This is a highball glass.
Well come on, Vicki, start wining !

Mrs. Schaeffer’s Dandelion Wine (Credited to: Mrs. Susan Laudenslager)
1 quart dandelion flowers, no stems
3 cups boiling water
1 yeast cake
3 pounds sugar
1 lemon, cut in small pieces
Pour the boiling water over the flowers and let stand for 24 hours. Strain. Add yeast to the liquid and let stand another 24 hours. Strain again, add sugar, lemon, and enough water to make 1 gallon. Set aside in a crockery jug. “If water is added, or if it stands as long as a month, it will ferment.”
Notes from me:
A U.S. gallon is 3.78 litres.
A cake of yeast is 2 1/4 teaspoons of granular yeast>
The “If water is added…” quote is in the recipe; I do not know what it means.
I recommend for your reading pleasure:
“Wishful Drinking” (2008)
Both of these are forthright, first person, accounts of Carrie Fisher’s real problems and adventures with drugs, alcohol, and Hollywood.
Neither is written in “poor me” style, in fact, they’re both really, really funny.
On a different note:
“The Princess Diarist” (2016)
Again, anything but “poor me,” but very much darker than the first two; although there is a fair bit of Carrie Fisher’s trademark humor within its pages.
Your opinions of both George Lucas and Harrison Ford could very well change, and not for the better, after reading this one. I know mine did.
Here’s one for “Ripley’s Believe it or Not.”
The word “gullible” isn’t in the dictionary.
Try and look it up if you don’t believe me.
“Martha and the Chambers” are going to be followed by a group known only as “Potters.”
This is interesting. Weird, but interesting.
A nice, short, to-the-point article. Thanks.
