    Hi Greg, that strue but, my problem is that we no longer have a Piano. We donated it to the First United Methodist Church when we still lived in Kingsville. It was a beat up piano but still could pound out the tunes.

    Watched the classic 1963 film...The Haunting. Great stuff, who needs blood & gore when the power of the mind can make you jump.

    I needed something good to see, so I tossed into my DvD player-Decision Before Dawn. It was excellent on first watching and gets even better everytime I watch it.

    Soon I will be feasting my eyes on these great pics: A Time To Love and A Time To Die, 55 Days At Peking, Hannible Brooks, and a few others (all on DvD) also-plus two hard to get Charlton Heston greats: El Cid and another period costumer. The War Lord-is the name of that other great period costumer. BTW. it also stars another favorite of mine-Richard Boone.

    Watched Battle of Britain again last night. I love that film for the aerial shots. You can keep your million pound CGI films, this film that's over 40 years old with outdated aircraft (even at the time of filming) is still visually beautiful to watch.

    Hi Scott, great choices. You should also add to your collection: A Time To Love and a Time To Die-which has: John Gavin as Corporal Graber, Lilo Pulver-as his wife, Keenan Wynn, as the Rich Corporal, Jock Mahoney as the "ace" Machinegunner, and a very young Dana "Jim" Hutton, as a conscientious young german Soldier serving on the Eastern Front and in Grabers Squad.

    Hi Scott, you can only get it from either Ebay or Amazon. I am getting a copy of the A Time To Love and a Time to Die movie-from ebay for less than $10 bucks. Also, it is printed by some South Korean Company so though it will be in English-will have Asian characters on the disk and case as well. Same goes for the 55 Days At Peking and The War Lord and Hannable Brooks movies. At least El Cid, was released by an Amercan company.

    Hey Carl, El Cid is still a good movie with a strong story line plus a dashing and talented Heston in the lead. As for playing the piano, I know what you mean. I haven't pounded the keys in years but once a person knows how to read those notes, signs, whether it's going to be pianissimo or appregio, one never forgets, especially if as a child one has lessons twice a week for four years, and with a recital to boot.
    As to what I have been watching, well, it's been reruns of Stargate and the classic Star Trek, plus of course, the never stale series of Combat! Oh yeah, over the weekend, I had a chance to see for the umpteenth time Casablanca with my niece because she was required to see it for her film appreciation class. I was glad to help her out with that.
    And thanks, Carl, for reminding me of El Cid. I'll have to get my old video tape of that movie and have it transferred to a CD so my Dad and I can go watch it together again.

    Hi Fal, quite welcome on all accouints. Yep, El Cid is one of my alltime most favorite of Hestons movies. I can't wait till my Deluxe Ed. version comes in-same as the 55 Days At Peking and The War Lord (all being Heston movies) and of course: A Time To Love and a Time To Die and Hannable Brooks. This month has been an expensive one for me and next month is alreadly looking like ill have a bigger DvD buying budget and might go for vols 1 & 4 of the Warner gangster movies. I already have vol 3 and also still need vol 2.

    El Cid is always a great pleasure to watch as is The Ten Commandments is.

    Two episodes of the series "Wings of the Luftwaffe": The ME-163 and ME-262.

    20 years on, the intro to that show still gets me going.
