Unfortunately he screwed up and separated them all from the envelopes without tracking what came from where so any info there may have been is now mixed up.

We can't find a single reference on this one. Ugly as hell but interesting at the same time.
i don't know anything about it, but now i want to find one to give to the grade-school nephew! so when the teachers start trying to teach them time, they can ask a question of why the school clock spins clockwise!

been a busy hectic week.

got sick, mostly stuffed up. just had trouble focusing after work hours.


my uncle unexpectedly passed away tuesday morning. his wife said he got up at 2am to use the bathroom, and just fell over unresponsive. they weren't able to revive him.
he's had a few health problems, but nothing lately. he was 67. just retired a few years ago...

Sorry to hear of your loss soundman. We lost my mother and an uncle the same way. Life is tough. I'm 69 and have told my wife for some time that the problem is we each have an expiration date but it's not stated on the packaging. Hang in there.

I qualify Lord of the Rings as indirect Christmas movie. Iím not sure why. They were released Christmas time? Or last night, I thought this filmís musical score is sorta Christmasesque?

Sorry to hear.

My aunt just went through a similar thing with her husband, he collapsed in the living room. EMT's were able to get there and keep him with us. They had to drive him about 3 hours to an out of area hospital and put in a pacemaker. All the hospitals around here are full due to the flu, covid, and RSV.

That's weird to me, but the movies were an addendum to an existing interest in Tolkien's world building and languages for me. Harry Potter, on the other hand... both the ooks and movies.
Our annual watch lately is the seasonally themed Lego Star Wars specials.

I think I've seen bits of that. I don't like peanut butter either though, so you can just put me in the "freak" category.
