I have the new "pride and predjudice" to watch after I get home from the castle. If the older BBC version is at your library definately worth watching! I love anything Jane Austen.

I watched "The Weatherman" the other day, it was good, but odd and a bit crude. Worth watching if you can deal with that stuff. I have "Proof" coming in the mail from blockbuster...looks good I will let you know.

I was thinking, I would love to finish the rest of my "Friends" collection, I have a few seasons and am going to hint around for a couple more, I watch the re-runs, but can't get enough.

For books I have a couple stashed to read, one is "Ahab's Wife"...very, every good! I wish everyone could read it. I borrowed it from my sister a few years ago and wanted to have my own copy.

Ahab's Wife was written by Sena Jeter Naslund

The back says:

From the opening line-"Captain Ahab was neither my first husband nor my last"-you will know that you are in the hands of a master storyteller and in the company of a fascinating woman hero. Inspired by a brief passage in "Moby ****", Sena Jeter Naslund has created an enthralling and compellingly readable saga, spanning a rich, eventful, and dramatic life. At once a family drama, a romantic adventure, and a portrait of a real and loving marriage, Ahab's Wife gives a new persepective of the American experiance.

You know how the backs of books are... Basically it follows this woman through her life, I can not really explain it fairly, it is just so heartfelt.

Hope that helps!

I love the new version of Little Women, even if it is a little self-serving. We own a copy, my preteen and teen girls love it too.

I am reading Small Island by Andrea Levy.
I am only about third through and don't get much time now I'm back at work! But I love it. It's set in post war London following the lives of a Jamaican couple who have settled there in hope of a better life.

Another really good read is The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill. It is a crime novel set in a small English town. Very absorbing who dun it type of story but well written, you really feel you know the characters.

Thanks for the ideas - on my to do list for today is going to the library for reading material. Running with Scissors is very good (book). I have Ice Harvest and with my Netflix membership am watching all seasons of 24. I have Several books written by Dalai Lama to read while I convalesce as well . . .

==============================================

I just finished rereading Margy Piercy's _The Longings of Women_ and have started _The Story of Pi_.

I love the old Esther Williams's films, and hear that a few years ago she wrote a rather spicey autobiography (or was it a biography that was written about her.

Thank you for remembering libraries!

Can recommend watching both Cinema Paradiso and The Chorus on DVD. Cinema Pardiso is set in Italy and is a love story where a young boy falls in love with Cinema and a girl from his home town. Woth coping with the subtitles.

For music lovers The Chorus is also worth watching. A Music Teacher goes to a school (for wayward boys) in France- approx 1940's and teaches the boys to sing.
