Thanks for correcting me because all this time I thought the "Overlook" was really in Colorado.
Are there any drive-ins left? Do you remember piling a bunch of bodies in the trunk and sneaking in, or being one of those bodies? You didn't go to the drive-in for the movie, did you? lol
oh, I want to join in on the Stephen King talk but i was never a fan. Though I like him. I think he's part of a band made up of authors.

I was into James Mitchner. My first road trip involved trying to find the locations written of in the book Centennial. About Colorado. This included a visit to the confluence of the Platte Rivers

I was just at the park and saw whole group of people doing it. I had no idea what they were doing. I thought they were on something LOL.
P.S.
The lady in that video Rose posted...
Her pants!!
Glad to see that I wasn't the only one who noticed the pants. Or more specifically, what they are doing. Used to be a term for that sort of thing. I think it involved a pachyderms foot.

It's true - his books make for great movies. Personally, I find it rare when a book is adapted to a movie and you can say wow that movie was sure better then the book. Only time I can say that is with "Bridges over Madison County." Clint Eastwood brought in his characteristic restraint (acting and direction) and it worked.

Okay, I have a comment on Under the Dome.
Out of all the names SK could have picked for one
of the main characters, a manly macho man, why
the name, Barbie?
I think feminine when I read the name, Barbie.
Heck, calling him Barney would be better...

I had to look that up, Ruby, because I'd forgotten. It was for his last name, "Barbara," which is totally weird. I've never known a person whose last name is Barbara.
I've either loved or hated King's names. He seems to either put a lot of thought into his names, or non at all. I've seen too many Nicks.
In The Stand, I didn't like the name "Frannie." I thought it was way too old and weak for such a strong character. And "Harold Lauder," for the dorky, chubby kid who had a crush on her.

Good Saturday evening bake/cook-book-gardeners. I spent much of the afternoon attending an event of ........ synchronized swimming!!

Grandkids will take you where a grandparent hasn't gone before!

James Michener -- big fan of books and movies. Didn't read/see 'em all, but several.

Prancer lady -- she was a segment of one of this week's Inside Edition. She came up with this prancing in the 80's and tried to promote it, but it didn't catch on. Maybe Jane Fonda was just too much competition for the attention of exercise mavens.

Good weekend wishes to the BRG'ers.

James Michener, haven't read any of his books but
always meant to read, Kent State.

It was certainly a defining moment in American history.

if you did that at your office desk, someone would put a call through to the loony bin. Love that 80's hair. Now we know why the polar ice caps are melting - Aqua Net!

I have a friend who was at Kent State at the time. He said that the actual seeds of discord started in the art department, where he was a student. Wish I could remember how that played out.

Be forewarned about Michener. Each book is around a 1000 pages. The first 150 of Centennial were spent on the Jurassic era/volcanic era that formed the continental divide. I kind of skipped a lot of that part. The Drifters was one that dealt with the Viet Nam era.

I liked "The Source."

Hey Barbi:)
I loved your last comment over on Ferr's blog...it brought back some special memories.

After I got a promotion and a raise for posting on Topix during work hours ( doesn't everyone?) our dog sat at the piano and did an amazing rendition of Randy Newmans "Short People" while our cat did a soft-shoe shuffle ;)

Happy Monday!

Under the Dome - I looked it up. Now I'm getting the references to Stephen king. And one of the stars of the show was the brother in law in Breaking Bad

And that's exactly why I'm a fan. Isn't our Selectman great? lol...

On a side note, we call them "councilmen" here. Odd that they're "selectmen" in the east.

Good afternoon BRG'ers!

I attended our annual cancer survivor's celebration yesterday. Sponsored by our hospital, my daughter and I had a wonderful lunch, my portrait taken, and I even won a cool prize!

Meanwhile, it's been around 95 degrees here and we've had two grass fires already.

Sorry I missed you, Mia.
Well, I don't have a job and live off government assistance, so I applaud any employer who ignores how time is spent. Someone has to pay the taxes, you know. I do love my beer!
:D
Amazing cat!
