Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I was so happy that you enjoyed the "Day of the Dead" posting. The rains they came - and it has gotten pretty chilly here with the temps hovering at about 48 degrees. The wet makes it seem colder!!
So last night while watching TCM, they are having a Month long tribute called "All Aboard" - featuring films with romances and or dramas on the high seas!! I really enjoyed last nights selection - starting off the evening was "Romance on the High Seas" - 1948 - then they showed "April in Paris" - 1952 - both Doris Day vehicles that are really charming. I have talked about them before and both are worth a look. The next film was a Jane Powell film called "Luxury Liner" - 1948 - another great little film. All three fun romantic films!! Since it was cold and wet I was in no mood for the kitchen... I made us a ....
...real comfort dinner of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches!! Easy to make, easy to eat and a quick clean up - who could ask for anything more!!
We are coming up on elections so I need to get on my soap box a moment!! Here in California we get about a bazillion pieces of crappity junk mail...
... for everything on the ballot - every candidate and every proposition for and against gets its own shiny piece of advertising... and them some - it would seem that at least the printing businesses are doing a brisk business!! Here is 1 weeks worth of mailers - 52 pieces of shiny, heavy 4 colour printed pieces of crap - that I did not read, did not look at and did not hesitate to toss into file 13! This is ludicrous and there is no way to stop it.
We already do the mail in voting ..
... thing, since our voting places changes every single year - and is usually so inconvenient to try and find parking that I have been "mail voting " for quite a few years. I vote every single year - and this is one of the projects for this weekend - going through the voting booklet and filling out the forms. I figure I can't bitch about things if I don't vote!!
There you go sports fans - another week goes by and we are now less than 3 short weeks from Thanksgiving!! Gobble Gobble....
