  1. On the Basis of Sex (2018)

    One of my professors mentioned stepping in to help single female colleagues by co-signing on loans, etc.
  2. They Shall Not Grow Old (2018)

    I wanted to see this, but I was out of town and it was only showing here as one of those Fathom event things. I may wait for it if it comes out on streaming or dvd.
  3. Favorite Non-Fiction?

    Isaac's Storm is about the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 that nearly wiped out the city and led to them building the seawall. Devil in the White City is about two men, one is an architect involved with building the Chicago World's Fair in 1893, and the other is a man who was a serial killer in Chicago at the same time. It highlights the Gilded Age era, a time when on the surface things were glittery and luxurious, but there were horrible things going on beneath the surface.
  4. Favorite Non-Fiction?

    Glad to hear this. I am rereading Devil in the White City and now want to read some other things he has written. I already have Isaac's Storm
  5. Mary Queen of Scots (2018)

    How does this compare to the other Mary Queen of Scots movie with Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson? Is it more or less historically accurate?
  6. I always liked the Life and Adventures os Santa Claus. I liked the magical beings that raised him and helped him.
  7. Favorite Sleeper Movies

    I love this movie! I got to recommend it years ago to some students when our Academic Decathlon team was studying the 1930s. some of the music they had to know was from the original musical.
  8. TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    That's crazy! Especially since it is the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice
  9. S04.E03: Episode 3

    I would like Morwenna's sister better if she worked to help Morwenna, but then again there might not be anything she could do.
  10. Favorite 1960s Songs

    A Change is Gonna Come Sam Cooke The End of the World Skeeter Davis Reflections by The Supremes The Times They are A Changin Bob Dylan Both Sides Now Joni Mitchell California Dreaming Mamas and the Papas God Only Knows Beach Boys Eve of Destruction Barry McGuire The Sound of Silence Simon and Garfunkle There are really are so many songs to mention!
  11. Did anyone else ever read the Sunfire romance books? They were always titled with the name of the heroine who lived during a historical era and always had to pick between two guys. I never actually bought them but checked them out form the library like crazy.
  12. Disney Music: "Let's get down to business..."

    Yes! Hercules is a fun little movie. maybe it's Peggy Lee, but I love the "He's a Tramp" song from Lady and the Tramp better than "Bella Notte" I also like " I Wonder" from Sleeping Beauty
  13. Gilmore Girls Elimination Game

    18, 3
  14. S01.E05: The Game of Your Life

    Me too! I was surprised how much of the song I remembered.
  15. Film Adaptations

    I'm glad I am not the only one who remembers this series! I loved this as a kid. I read all the Ramona books growing up and never realized they were written a while ago. Some are a little old fashioned, (the first one was written in 1955!) but I enjoyed them. After this, Sarah Polley was also in the Canadian series Road to Avonlea which was a sort of adaption of Lucy Maud Montgomery's The Story Girl series and other books.
