   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  I have a really neat friend with one exception. I usually am the driver when we are out and about. She was in a terrible accident about 5 years (she was the driver ) and ever since she has become a screecher, always yelling "watch out" (which makes me look and there is never anything except me jumping on the brake ) and saying someone is backing out!! I swear there will be an accident unless I blind fold her. She went to a doctor who recommend she counsel to help her with this or she would relive her accident forever. The killer to this, she says she doesn't need help. Grrrrrr

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I was just on the movie site when an author's name popped up; J.R, Lansdale. I checked him out and his books really sound like they are well worth reading. Has anyone here read his works? What's your opinion? I've got my eye on The Thicket.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Feel like fussing.......did any one see Melonie Griffith on the Red Carpet? Whoever did her plastic surgery should be sued. She looks older than before she had the work done!

   StormCnter  Gram, she looks bizarre, doesn't she. I always wonder if those celebrities who have all that surgery and botox ever look in a mirror afterward. We cannot stop time with money. Fuss away. I'm with your opinion.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I think it was Richdet that was rooting for JK Simmons and so was I. Well, it happened and I am so pleased!

   Richdet  After he won, and the show went on the way it did, I was hoping JK would emulate his Oscar-winning character and throw a chair at Neal Patrick Harris, or anybody else for that matter. What an annoying, self-indulgent bunch of people for the most part. We all know they are like that, but why remind us?

   StormCnter  I am blinded by the image of Neal Patrick Harris in his undies. Come back, Bob Hope, wherever you are.

   Richdet  It takes a lot to make me cringe these days, but that tighty-whities routine was so wrong on so many levels that Harris managed to make me shudder. Apologies if this comes off as crass (or as dismal as a Neal Patrick Harris joke ), but how many tube socks did that fool have stuffed in that thing? If I were his manager or friend or just a concerned bystander, I would have locked him in his dressing room before I let him do that.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I was unusually tired Saturday night so (as usual ) hopped into bed and turned the TV on and relaxed to the movie Turner and Hooch. Totally nuts but it was fun and required no thinking.

   StormCnter  I've seen Turner and Hooch and I agree, it was a fun movie. Except for the ending.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I fuss about people crossing streets where there are no lights, maybe too much, however after a terribly frightening experience yesterday I am extremely angry. We were traveling on a 6 lane street (3 lanes, an island and 3 more lanes ) and we were in the center lane. Traffic was moving at about 40 miles an hour, the correct speed for that street when suddenly a man appeared right in front of us. Hubby slammed on the brakes and I yelped. The man who was trying get across the street actually swore at us and then held up his hand to stop the car next to us and then had the nerve to swear at them too! Took hubby and I a bit to get settled. God must have been watching over all of us because it could have been a real tragedy.

   Escaped commieny  There is so much I could say, I was an outside sales rep for over 30 yrs, white Tempo, white mini vans, silver F150, it's like they were all invisible, or maybe it is just the arrogance of the Darwin award wannabes. About 10 yrs ago the DH got a rig, I spent some time in an 80000 lb vehicle, 75 ft long and bright orange and they still jumped in front, they have no idea how long it takes a semi to stop. What is that saying about looking out for children and morons?

   Balogreene  Tonight on the way home, about 1730, a black car with no lights was behind me for 12-15 miles. All I could see behind me was a black space in front of the headlights. Finally, at an intersection a few miles from home, he went straight, and I turned right. He was going particularly slow, maybe he knew he had no lights. But, I never saw him turn them on. By the time we turned opposite directions it was full dark.

   Clover  Seems people just don't care. For instance, the first stop on my daily agenda is the post office. It is located in a small shopping mall and the area stays very busy. When pedestrians are present, traffic is supposed to give way. Not so. I've almost been hit three times and once the car came so close that it left marks on my coat. That was IT! I wrote the mayor a letter telling him of these problems and two weeks later cross-walks were designated with very large, yellow stripes and two red Stop Signs appeared. I almost got hit again yesterday.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Hi folks, and thanks for the chicken soup. I'll be checking the Connection throughout the day. I'm up and down catching naps and having the old stand by called tea and toast. I totally agree that Charles Grodin stole that movie.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Been hit with some sort of a bug so today was a waste. I put the TV on the Sundance Channel and crawled into bed. An old movie came on and I had forgotten what a crazy moie it was. It was Midnight Run and the ending was absolutely the best.

   StormCnter  I'm sorry you've been sick, Gram. My mother referred to those nasty unidentifiable bugs as "the epizootie". So, you've been hit by the epizootie, but maybe you'll recover quickly.

Robert DiNero and Charles Grodin are in "Midnight Run". I haven't seen it, but based on your tip, I'll find it on Netflix.

   Richdet  Good recommendation, Gram. I had forgotten about that one; I saw it when it first came out. Charles Grodin pretty much steals that picture. Sending a virtual pot of chicken soup Gram's way.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  This is both reading and movies. I read Left Unattended by Lisa Genova. Her second book is on the screen now; Still Alice. Has anyone read either of these and has anyone seen Still Alice? I've read Left Unattended and liked it.

   StormCnter  Gram, I've read neither of those books, but I have "Still Alice" on my to-buy list.

   StormCnter  I'm reading "Us", by David Nicholls. It's about a man trying to hold his marriage together and work on his fragile relationship with his teenaged son while on a trip to Europe. The writer drops in laugh-out-loud descriptions and characterizations. I like to check out potential book purchases at Good Reads.

   Gram77  Storm, try Left Unattended first. It really shows of the writer's talent. Now US is on my mile long list of things to read. Thanks.
