TV addict
I'm taking care of a friend's dog, staying at her apartment, while she and her family are in Cape Cod for the week. I discovered they have a cable station called MeTV which I've never heard of but it airs all sorts of shows from my childhood. Already I have seen episodes of "The Man from UNCLE", "The Saint", "Mission: Impossible" and am currently watching "Naked City" with Burgess Meredith, Herschel Bernardi and a young, almost unrecgnizable, Alan Alda. Later I'll watch episodes of "Daniel Boone" and "Thriller" and who knows how many other shows MeTV will air from my youth this week. They say you can't go home again but sometimes you can at least stumble on a way to take a peek at the past.

I'm watching "Simon & Garfunkel: The Concert in Central Park" on PBS and find I still remember most of the lyrics as I was a huge fan way back when. The concert was filmed in 1981 when they were 40 years old. One of the songs they sang was "Old Friends/Bookends" with lyrics that go "Can you imagine us years from today sharing a park bench quietly? How terribly strange to be seventy." Well they are now over 70 - I wonder if they really think it's that strange and if they ever would share a park bench.

Last night my friend called me and told me that the air conditioning in her house had gone caput and that things might be a bit crazy. She called me this morning and said it would be best if I came later this summer as they might have to move out of the house for a few days while it's being fixed *sigh* I was getting dressed and was all packed and about to head for the airport. Oh well that's life - stuff happens.

Just wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow I'm flying to Fargo to spend a couple of weeks with my best friend and her hubby. I may not be that active here or on FB. We'll see how it goes.

Only One Earth
I generally eat oatmeal for breakfast and try to make it as healthy as possible by adding dried cranberries and blueberries, some coconut oil and Ceylon cinnamon, some chia seeds and unsweetened applesauce. Afterwards I usually wash the bowl with a mesh sponge. Today I noticed a couple of sprouts growing on the sponge probably from the chia seeds. Life is tenacious and if humanity manages to wipe itself out I'm sure life on Earth will continue without us but hopefully that will not happen.

ROFL Thumper
Got an email in my spam asking me if I'd like to grow 2 inches. As I'm only 5' 2" I would love to grow 2 inches but somehow I don't think that's what the question is all about ;)

B5-From the Stars

Oh dear another star of the 60s passed on. I loved watching "The Avengers" with Mr Steed and Emma Peel and one of the best things about him was that he refused to carry a gun. He will be missed. RIP Patrick Macnee.

The relative in the Boston area who I share my birthday bash with in January has a daughter who gave birth to her own baby daughter yesterday morning giving her boyfriend the most wonderful Father's Day present. Little Violet Anne was born at 36 weeks weighing 7 lbs 4 ozs. Occasionally her birthday will again fall on Father's Day but it will even more often be the day of the Summer Solstice. What a lucky little girl. May she live a long and happy life.

Today I went to see the exhibition "Life of Cats" at the Japan Society. I'd put it off so long that unfortunately it was the second rotation but there were many from the first rotation so I don't think I missed that much. If you want to see something of what it was like you can watch this:

Ooh I found this vid of the first rotation. Yay!!!:

OMGosh exactly 12 years ago today the last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired. Tempus does fugit. In the years since I have yet to find a show that I'm as addicted to as I was to BtVS and I doubt I ever will *sigh*
