It’s friday! That means it’s time for movies! At least that’s what it means this week, it is clearly not what it meant last week, and who knows if that’s whatit will mean next week! Today’s movie is called Texas, Brooklyn, and Heaven. It was released in 1948, and it’s a delightful slice of a movie.

A few weeks ago, spurred by my continuing facination with technology that we have otherwise left behind, I purchased several small, touch screen, pocket computers manufactured by PalmOne. Calling them ‘palm pilots’ is a bit of a misnomer, but it’s close enough. Specifically, I got a tx, an e2, and a lifedrive. What follows are impressions after several weeks of hands on use.
As I mentioned previously, we bought a house and moved to the North GA mountains. We’re home and mostly settled, I am finding a good rhythm with my new job, and with life in the country. Things are good!
This weekend, I watched and enjoyed His Girl Friday. I thought it would be fun to share it with you all. You’ll find the trailer, the full movie, and some comentary below. I will warn you that the trailer has a few light spoilers (but they are spoilers from the play, which is 90 years old, and with which it is assumed audiences would already be familiar when watching this film.)
