We rented the movie, Timeline. We have a TV Guardian which silences
naughty words
and displays (sometimes funny) alternatives in captioning. Apparently,
the British army addressed
the French army as “those French jerks”. Overall, the movie probably
isn’t worth
renting. Something that stuck out at me was the apparent lack of any
graphics. At least, I can’t remember any. They must have either had a
low budget
or some artistic direction to avoid it. In the “climactic” scene where
go back in time in the time machine, the only signal that it’s
happening is that
there is a bright light, a bunch of wind and “it really hurts a lot”. I
didn’t care enough to see if there
was a production documentary on the DVD. Some of the actors probably
should have
been replaced with more life-like computer-generated
counterparts…like those guys

It just occurred to me that you are always cross-eyed. When you focus

We went over to the grandparents’ house Saturday evening and had
a nice visit. My uncle regaled us with a tale about how he
spent a night outside in Alaska at 30 below many years ago. He actually
a bit of frostbite on his toes but it wasn’t severe enough
to be permanent. He wore multiple layers of bread bags and socks
on his feet. The weather guy had told him it was
going to be zero degrees, so he was pretty surprised when he found out
that it had been 30 below. He was saying that at 50 below, you have
to wear a mask or the air will freeze your lungs and mess them
up…possibly permanently.
We also watched a DVD I made that had footage of us as kids. Ah,
the bowl haircuts.
