why I love movies

I can't imagine what life was like before movies. They've been here for my entire life to escape with, fall in love with, make me happy (at least for awhile) or make me cry. When a guy would take me on a date to a movie, I wanted to WATCH the movie so I made some guys mad and never went out with the...

Hi Larry, Thanks for the clarification on Nell and the Romanovs. It's been quite a while since I've read about the Romanovs and the revolution. I asked about the girls because I don't remember reading anything about any impending marriage or an engagment to any of them. I didn't know if WWI was to b...

Danny, you're a genius!

I have just finished looking at every post, start to end, and you have a gift. Every time a new portrait appeared I was awe-struck and couldn't wait for the next one. I don't do people because I can't do eyes, I stick with flowers (think Georgia O'Keefe) and sea scapes. I can hide my mistakes in the...

Olga, Tatiana, Maria

Good morning Larry, I hope the heat has been less of a problem and you're much more comfortable. Take care and stay cool. I have a question about the Czars oldest daughters, Olga and Tatiana, and possibly Maria that I hope you can answer. Where there plans for them to be married and if so to whom? I...

Thanks for being right neighborly!

Thanks for the warm welcome Lynn, Larry, Dewey and Klondike, I appreciate it. I'm way ahead of you on the snacks and comfortable seating arrangement though. I'm having left over ginger beef and chow mein. Nothing like Chinese food at 3:30 am! And I'm lounging on a blanket spread over straw in the ba...

"The lunatics are on the grass"

As someone who has a "Prune Bush" sticker on my car I'll throw in my 2 cents on the disgrace that is in Washington. And I watch Keith Olbermann every night. My father was an Army guy, enlisted in Korea (wounded 2x) and an officer in Viet Nam. He was an honorable man, your word was your bond. He was...
