Cold & AA

We have been on the jet stream bend as it heads south and then north. It may have hit 28 this morning. The cold screws up all my activities. To cold for golf, to cold for photography and even a walk on the beach is uncomfortable. We pitched all our Ohio winter clothes years ago. This winter has been the coldest ever!

We are excited about the Academy Awards tomorrow. We have seen nearly every movie contending for awards. We watched the Wrestler the other day and how some rate it higher than The Reader, Doubt and Milk are besides us. I lived for a glimpse of a TV in the late '40s. We would gather around a friends TV (we didn't get one until '55) and root for Gorgeous George. Sure it was fake as hell but it was exciting to watch the show. No blood, no chairs, no tables, just honest to goodness tumbling and painfully fake holds. But George won all the time. He threw gold hair pins to the crowd. Oh what I would have given to see a match in person. Today's Wrestler is of a different ilk. Rourke was excellent, just below that of performances of Streep, Penn, Winslet.

Trying it out

I am repeating the process to see if i can get the steps down. Doing something once and then coming back hours later has always been a challengege for me. I find if I do the steps a few times I remember the sequence far better.

First effort

I might be a little out of my element . How many OLD farts like me are bloggers. Since the PC age in the early 1980s, my children have been the motivation behind getting me involved. I have had my own website since 2000. U might try visiting This will be an outlet for more frustration than information. Life is great!
