American Beauty

Just a quick post …

Was hanging out at a friends house for Thanskgiving leftovers, and wound up watching American Beauty on DVD.

What a great movie. I never get tired of watching it. One of my favorite scenes is when Lester is working out in the garage and smoking his Army Grade weed, and after his wife tells him that he won’t get away with his rebellious behavior, Lester offers, with each bench press:

That’s …

What …

You …

It’s not quite a power-to-the-people moment, but for suburban malaise, it’s close enough…

Norwegian Dawn

Hi Gang,

Liz and I recently took a cruise down to the Carribean on the Norwegian Dawn. The ship left from the Hudson River in NYC–talk about convenient for us!–and made one stop in Florida (we spent the day at Epcot Center; skip it–soooooo cheesey), and then one stop each at Freeport, Great Stirrup and Nassau. We had some cold, cruddy weather going up and back along the Atlantic, but got plenty o sunshine in the Carribean.

Overall Norwegian offers a solid cruise experience with lotsHi Gang,

Overall Norwegian offers a solid cruise experience with lots of dining options (but not the greatest food quality), but it didn’t quite live up to the Carribean cruise we took a few years back with Celebrity cruise line. Still, it was a good and well-needed vacation. A few highlights included my first time parasailing–man, you get up high! so cool!–and a super relaxing day on the beach at Freeport getting nice and lobster red.

Anybody got any other cruises to recommend?

Happy Thanksgiving 2

Hi Gang,

I had a great big Thanksgiving post here with all sorts of holiday wishes, but as I’m still learning how to use my own Web site, I logged in under the wrong user name and lost the whole thing!

D’oh!

Anyway, I want (again) to wish everybody a happy holiday, and hope that you spent Thanksgiving with good friends and family, stuffed yer faces good, and took a moment or two to give thanks for all the things you’re grateful for.

Talk again soon.

My Buddy Alex

Hi Gang,

Some of you know my cat, Alex, who my wife and I refer to as either Alex, buddy, or The Buddy. He’s quite the character, let me tell you. You know those cats that basically run the place? Yep. That’s Alex all over. And yet you just can’t not love the little guy. I first scooped up Alex back in 1992 when I was still in Buffalo, and he’s been with me ever since. I’ll be telling lots of Alex-related tales, and I’ll post his pic soon. But for now, just wanted to say hi, introduce you Hi Gang,
