<quoted text>well, you have always had WGN,'educational TV', probably another independent, and the major commercial networks.

when I was a lad, it was 3 networks and an independent.
The three networks, WGN local, public broadcasting and I don't know what UHF was or stood for.

First Snopes debunked it, now Morgan Freeman himself has stated that the widely-circulated quote condemning the media's response to the Newtown, CT tragedy is, in fact, not from him. The statement took the media to task for the manner in which they cover mass shootings, claiming that it glorifies the killers and gave other disturbed individuals an incentive to follow suit. The fact that the statement purported to be from the beloved, Academy Award-winning 75 year old actor led to it being posted and re-posted far and wide the Internet over, which led some to become suspicious of the quote's true source.

This is not the first political stance misattributed to Freeman: in September, a quote from a Twitter parody account featuring Freeman's photo condemning homophobia was widely attributed to the actor himself, in spite of clear indications—the spelling of the account, the profanity it employed—that it was not him.
Kudos to CNN for not mentioning the shooter's name but going to great lengths to identify and mention personal things to remember the victims!

<quoted text>when you take away reality shows (Jersey Shore anyone?) and repeats, etc etc ... about 20% of the content is much good. Also consider the fact that 3/4 of those channels have the same shows on them ... you probably come down to maybe 20 channels that offer real choice.
Pretty accurate statistics there. I did notice she we upgraded and got more channels it was the duplicates.

2 channels!?! Wow !
Did you know Holiday Inn was done before White Christmas but by far not as popular. Holiday Inn was the first time "White Christmas" the song appeared in a musical.
They are all classics and wherever you are I think there's something that touches you about all three movies.
Be well Tony
I did indeed know that. It was the success of the song that caused the Studio to make "White Christmas", substituting Danny Kaye for Fred Astaire, who starred alongside Bing in the first movie. The first was released in 1942, the second in 1954. Although Irving Berlin wrote the music for both, I have to say I much prefer the first movie.

Did you know Frank Capra got the story from "The Greatest Gift", by Philip Vam Doren Stern, who wrote it in 1939 and then published it privately in 1943 with 200 copies to send out to friends at Xmas? I've read it - it's far darker than Capra's movie. Ironically, the movie flopped in 1946 when it opened and was panned by the critics, bankrupting Capra's new studio who had financed its $3.7 million budget. Jimmy Stewart only took the role because Lionel Barrymore (who plays Potter), persuaded him to do it.

Uselss movie facts, edition 1!!

Thanks for that DW - must check my sources more carefully! Ironically, when researching on the net for history information. I am very rigorous - maybe that's why I'm slack in other areas - relaxing.

<quoted text>LMAO!!! Great answer!!!
This makes me wonder, though ... I bet it is Police policy that they lock their lockers ... my understanding is that losing thier gun or badge can get them a reprimand ...
The lawyer was beign quite underhanded, wasn't he? If I was the officer I might be tempted to ask the lawyer "Hey, maybe your colleagues will lie to you, but I doubt my colleagues would lie to me" ...
Sadly, in court procedure, a witness doesn't get the opportunity to do this, but I know exactly what you mean!

Can't let that pass - some of the best meals I had was in my time with the Royal Navy and the Commandos - the Sergeants, Colour Sergeants and Chief Petty Officer chefs were top rate and won national competitions. Did eat a couple of times on USN ships though and do know where you are coming from!

Morning one and all - awoken this morning to more floods in Cornwall, together with flood threats on many of the rivers. I'm fine, being on higher grounds, but I do feel sorry for some who are facing this for the third time so far this winter and we're only in December.

<quoted text>Hi El. My wife and I went to a casino and had a nice drive and a good lunch. The sad thing is I lost $20 :) Well Obama went on TV and as we thought he is going to expand gun control or at least try to. We have a bill being introduced in Texas that will really reduce the probability of another tragedy. Just like they have sky marshals we will have school marshals. They will be unknown who is the first responders and will be school personal who will have concealed carry license and police training and will be a deputy. These nuts don't go to places they know someone will be armed. Blame the person who pulled the trigger not the gun
He didn't say he would abolish all guns ... he said he wanted to find a way to reduce the sort of tragedies that can occur with guns ... and that he would assign people to do all the research possible to find a solution that would meet with the approval of the general populatoin.

Perhaps the Texas proposal might be the one he thinks the country should adopt.

You've obviously never been to the souther US! Biscuits & gravy are very popular - a flaky bread type biscuit, not sweet, with a thick white gravy almost porridge like in consistency, I think made from a chicken fat broth. Ver hearty (hardy?) meal for folks who worked the farm fields.
The furthest I got was San Francisco,
never tasted it there...

tho' the food there was very VERY good.

I must admit tho' I missed the old
'spud'[El will know what I mean lol.]
they seemed to do a lot of dishes
not incl the potato.

The potato is a huge part of our Irish fare
here.

I'm still delighted for you,
genuinely, re your New Year job news..
I think they spotted what we have spotted here!!>

imagining 'em saying at a round table conference'>

'You know folks, that RM Quinn, is a clever
lady, let's keep her on-

all in favour say AYE!'

followed by a resounding...

'AYE'!

Happy Christmas to you.

Morning all, a little humour to brighten your day, pinched from a friend of mine on FB:
If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman.
He was being cross-examined by a defence attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility .....
Q:'Officer --- did you see my client fleeing the scene?'
A:'No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.'
Q:'Officer, who provided this description?'
A:'The officer who responded to the scene.'
Q:'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?'
A:'Yes, sir. With my life.'
Q:'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?'
A:'Yes sir, we do!'
Q:'And do you have a locker in the room?'
A:'Yes, sir, I do.'
Q:'And do you have a lock on your locker?'
A:'Yes, sir.'
Q:'Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?'
A:'You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.'
The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.
NICE one, Tony.lol

Jade Just me
El,

If I may come in here to say..

what a VERY LOVELY sentiment in that poem..

GREAT CHOICE...

First, I thought it was of your own
creation...

I might .. with your 'say so'.. put the
Christmas poem I wrote .. on here before the
big day..

It is a kind of 'patchwork quilt' of Christmas memories
from my past, and all deeply cherished & ever fondly remembered.

El,

It's a nice time of year to say

YOU are 'A Good Egg'
