    2017 california wildfires

    Wow. I can't believe what I am seeing. Californians deserve this? Death toll of 21 isn't enough, huh? I guess 40 million would make you happy? Being in the same place with narrow minded, stereotypical and uncaring views isn't something that is on my list of things to do. I'm gone. I pray you never have to experience the fear, sense of loss and sadness that so many are going through right now. Your heart needs to expand, as well as your mind. Best wishes, everyone.

    Well, he oughta get a big chuckle out of this one. http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Elderly-couple-identified-as-first-casualties-of-12266922.php Thank you, James, for the reply. I appreciate it.

    Thank you. I appreciate it. I am not in Sonoma or Napa Counties but am further north. We don't get the press they do because of how rural we are. Cell phones and landlines are out due to fire. Thank goodness for satellite internet and phone and my scanner. I just need the power to stay on. I never thought I would be a fan of Twitter due to its use the past few months by certain parties but am finding it an excellent resource and am following four feeds at once to stay informed. We just need the winds to lay low, which was the cause of all of this in the first place.

    How sanctimonious. My family has ranched this land since 1965. We are on voluntary evacuations but are staying due to livestock and chickens. My parents are elderly and this is a serious emotional trial for me. We are packed and ready to go if we are told to get out and it is heartbreaking to think we may have to leave this land we have worked so hard on and for. This isn't a joke - at least to many of us. We have had three deaths less than 20 miles from me. Burgers and cokes are not in our forecast any time soon. Watch out for karma. Your laughter may be your own tears someday.

    THE COWBOY AND THE LADY
  6. I love your mention of Jack Carson. I've always felt he needed more attention. Eve Arden, Agnes Moorehead and Mary Astor would also be choices of mine.

    Oh, I am sorry. I see Richard Kimble posted a picture of it already.

    There was a doll in NIGHT OF THE HUNTER although I'm not certain there was much to it.

    Who Cares? Actors

    I may take a lot of heat for my post, but I skip any Katharine Hepburn day and movie now that I have seen quite a few of them. The way she speaks is way over the top to me. "Affected" comes to my mind. I love the movie Holiday (I like the Mary Astor version better) but when, near the end, Hepburn says, "Please try and stop me" speech it grates on me. Kind of like Norma Shearer at the end of The Women - another movie I love - overacted. Katharine always seems like she played nearly the same character - someone you sympathized with and rooted for and liked. Yes, she did have a couple of roles where she was not so likeable (Suddenly, Last Summer comes to mind) but all in all, I feel that Bette Davis and Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Crawfold all took on more roles of women with different personalities and not all likable ones. I do have to say I read her autobiography and I really admire her as a person and woman but I skip her movies. I believe it was in one of Lauren Bacall's books where she recalls Hepburn carrying her own mirror during the filming of The African Queen. That's pretty humble. I kinda like Kay Francis. She has one gorgeous back and whoever was her costume designer in whatever movie must have noticed that. Same with Stanwyck. Another beautiful back. And I'm a straight woman. :-)

    Pre-Code that Pushed the Envelope

    I think Trouble is Paradise is pretty sexy. I mean, just what were Kay Francis and Herbert Marshall doing in her room for so long, hmmmmm?

    Actors/Actresses Who You Feel Are Brilliant

    Only two names came to my mind when I saw the word "brilliant" - Bette Davis and Meryl Streep. I have quite a few actors/actresses I believe are extremely talented but just these two are on my Brilliant List.
