chardy: I don't know if you realise, but it's NYE in the northern hemisphere right now - I guess yours is like in July right ? I will get back to you then.
Bondo: Thanks for the threads you are in charge of too. Your reviews are compelling, different readings of the movies I have watched.
Taking a lull in my holiday for an announcement. Some people might be shocked to learn that I do not celebrate Thanksgiving but there is not much I can do about that. With that in mind, the end of the year seems like a good moment to air some thoughts. jdc: I dare not imagine what you are going to do to listen to live jazz now. Who ever heard of such a thing in London ? Anyway, thanks for the beers. I am going to have a couple in a minute. They do not cost half a month's salary. What a brave new world.
Thank you DH, and I echo your comments! This is a great community, and I look forward to reading your posts every time I log into the forum.
