  5. An early Happy Father's Day to all of of EC.com dads!!! I was such a daddy's girl, and I miss him every day. I hadn't seen this film in a very long time, but it popped up as a choice on the Kanopy station. By the way, if you don't have Kanopy, check it out. There are tons of classic and foreign films, many of which I haven't seen screened since my college film courses. Kanopy also has a wide variety of music & documentary programs. Anyway, back to the show. I'm recommending the 1973 Peter Bogdonovich film, Paper Moon, for Father's Day viewing. Set in the Midwest during the Great Depression, Ryan O'Neal & daughter Tatum play a couple of two bit con artists who are taking the long way to St. Joseph, Missouri where Tatum's character is to be delivered to her aunt after the death of her mother. Is Ryan O'Neal's character her real father or not???? You decide. This film was Tatum O'Neal's first film, and what a debut! Her performance garnered an Academy Award® and still holds the record after fifty years for the youngest performer to win. If you like simply a good story & good acting with zero need of flashy CGI, you will enjoy this film. A bit of film nerdism... Cinematic genius Orson Welles was a mentor to Bogdonivich and suggested the use of a red lens filter to shoot the film. The result is magnificent in its depiction of the Depression Era Great Plains. Here's a clip... Enjoy!!!
  6. I love Mu Shu style anything & Lo Mein anything. Also have to have an egg roll or a steamed pot sticker! I do love hot & sour soup as well as wonton. Over the years, I have been to several different Chinatowns with Chinese friends who ordered stuff that's not listed on the menu. It was all great, but I have no idea what the dishes were called. There was something steamed inside of lily pads. It was very good. Oh, and Dim Sum brunch on a Sunday is a delightful thing! Love just about any Dim Sum treat I tried. And tea. You've got to have the hot tea. Yum!!! 😋
  7. James Lawson was instrumental in the organization of nonviolent Civil Rights demonstrations & protests. This activism got him expelled from Vanderbilt University, but that expulsion did nothing to curtail his presence in the movement. He was organizing that infamous sanitation workers' strike in Memphis... https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/2024/06/10/james-lawson-towering-civil-rights-activist-pioneer-nonviolent-protest-nashville-memphis-dies-at-95/74048239007/
  8. Hey! G is one of my Nick Lowe cronies, but I haven't chatted with him in a long while since I don't FB much anymore!!! Wishing you great happiness and joy on your birthday, G! Come home soon! We need a couple more Jersey boys around here!!! 🥳🧁🍰🎁🎂🎈🎊
  9. Pat was the perfect host for one of America's favorite programs. His all-American-Midwest-boy-next-door demeanor worked magic with Vanna's Southern charm. He was genuine.
  10. Yup, that's how it's done. A very good friend was a catalog and tabletop photographer, and his wife was the stylist. Now, remember, this was back in the day of "real" photography with film, lamps and all the other traditional gear, so sometimes the shot took more time than the current digital photography & manipulation. Everyone always knew NOT to snack in Rick's studio!!!
  11. I believe that two years of military or domestic service should be mandatory upon graduation from high school or upon reaching the age of 18. If completed, THEN the government can subsidize their college education. After being in the service, I'm certain that they would take college and life more seriously. I have a good friend who went through college and grad school courtesy of (as he says) "his rich uncle, Uncle Sam." He retired from the Army after twenty years of service, part of which was teaching history at West Point and at Sandhurst as an exchange professor. He grew up very poor and says he never could have afforded his undergraduate, Masters or PhD without the Army. But he sure earned it with his service.
  12. After 41 years as host of Wheel of Fortune , Pat Sajak has said farewell. His replacement?? Big surprise... Ryan Seacrest. Thank you, Pat!! Don't worry fellas... beautiful Vanna is still on the board.
  13. Before he was Scotty, Irish/Canadian actor James Doohan landed on Juno Beach on D-Day. Since we just celebrated the 80th anniversary of D-Day with a dwindling group of the Greatest Generation's veterans, I thought this was pretty cool! I heard a very sad statistic that we lose 100 WWII vets every day. Soon there will be no more. Look at how ungrateful our youngest generations are for the sacrifices made by these vets. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/before-he-was-on-star-trek-james-doohan-landed-on-juno-beach-and-took-out-two-enemy-snipers-on-d-day/ss-BB1nKY3A?ocid=socialshare&cvid=e4468c25cffa413491f01ff76b657095&ei=8&sc=shoreline#image=1
