You are right about flipping the calendar. I am amazed at how quickly this new year is passing already. Of course this summer, it will seem to slow down for me! Enjoy the game.

It looks like we could be in for a treat today. We should receive about 5cm of snow this afternoon. The rest of the week won't be pretty either. Rain and freezing rain - and lots of it! That's for Tuesday and Wednesday. We'll see how that turns out.

I don't think we have many plans for this week. A friend informed me that due to our running of a local rink, we were given free tickets for the Ottawa Senators and Washington Capitals game tomorrow night. I'm a fan of neither team, but it should be an entertaining game to watch.

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and is looking forward to the next as well. It will be nice to flip the calendar on Friday!

We took my former boss out for dinner Saturday night to a fancy restaurant. You have to understand that I'm a country boy, so Olive Garden is about a fancy as I can stand, but this place had a dress code, and offered only 6 entree choices. Among these choices was roast duck in some kind of wine sauce, and of all things, ratatouille. My kids loved hearing about that since we've seen the Disney/Pixar movie a hundred times.

Anyway, I left there and went to a new coffee shop that competes with Starbucks here in the southeast, called Elliano's. Good cuppa joe! Dawg, I think there's one in Valdosta, too.

Well, ...*yawn*...I hope y'all have a great day!

That sounds good to me. I love seafood! But, PB&J sounds good, too!

Not bad, but I would have preferred a peanut butter & jelly sandwich.

Time for work. Woke up to just a little frost this morning. No snow, of course. Will be online right after school.

CM3, be strong; don't give in when you know in your heart you are right. PM me!!!

When I lived in Maryland, the downtown movie house that was built in 1926, the Tivoli, had a working theater organ. They used to show a few silent films a year accompanied by the organ. I used to write the pieces that went in the newspaper telling about the films that would be shown. There was a special thrill in seeing a silent film with the organ in a theater where these films were shown for the first time.
Keaton was good, too. I prefer Lloyd, Keaton, then Chaplin last (of the "Big Three). But, even today, Chaplin seems to get the most attention.
The Tivoli sounds great! I wish there was something like that in my area. It's rare any classics play on the big screen around here.

I watched the documentary on Youtube, but it is up in three parts rather than in its entirety, and I'm not sure if it was complete. I would love to see it from start to finish...what I saw was great!
