    Miz Stella and Stellars…

    Along with wishes for happiness go hopes and prayers that Stella’s basement is on its way to being the driest in the neighborhood, and all issues are resolved to make a dry future.

      Good day to you, G&C! Fun group of paintings. Looks like a mouse at the baseboard in the last one. The artist should have had the cat looking down at it. LOL!

        Our county just went to all masks indoors. I am sure the decision was based on the obviously faulty data that the health dept. In Fl had put out.

          Even at home when you’re alone or just if you are shopping, eating out, etc.?

            Lol. In stores and eating out until you get your food ………….or something. I didnt make a big stink because of my friend, but I am going to have to rethink that. My friend would probably get a kick out of me raising a ruckus. I told her to pull the mask off her nose since it bothers her so much.

    Well, all the wet mucky trash has been removed from the basement. Floors still not clean, but dry in spots. Furnace guy will be here momentarily. Praying that they can repair my furnace. If he says not, I will seek another opinion before giving in. Water heater isn’t working either. I have a plumber scheduled for next Monday, although I may look for one who can come sooner.

    Found this on YouTube. I have seen Picnic, but forgot about this scene. Enjoy!


    • Lucille says:

      One of my all-time favorite films and the music, too. Really love this scene.

      When the film was released in 1955, Kim Novak was 22, William Holden 37, Cliff Robertson 32, Susan Strasberg was only 17, and 16 when she was filming. She came into my office one day in the early 70s. We got to talking about PICNIC and she said that acting with such great stars could have been intimidating since it was her first film but everyone was wonderful to work with…all professional, but she thought she could have done a better job. Her father was the famous acting coach, Lee Strasberg; so she’d been around fame since she was born. I thought she was fine–imagine being that good at 16–and told her so.

      I’m not sure why the producers decided to go with older male actors playing men in their 20s, but I think both Holden and Robertson were excellent. One of my fav scenes is when Holden and Novak are by the railroad tracks after they’ve run away from a gathering and she kisses him. He says, “Oh, Baby, what did you do?” LOL! Love it!

      The only person in the main cast of PICNIC who is still alive is Kim Novak. There were a lot of uncredited actors in the film, though why the Screen Actors Guild allowed that is beyond me. One of them was Shirley Knight who passed away 3 months ago. My favorite film she starred in was SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH with Paul Newman, an absolute masterpiece, IMO. Those who haven’t seen it, should. An acting tour de force.

    Communist China and Islamic Republic of Iran draft trade and military partnership
    July 14, 2020 – by Robert Spencer

    The New York Times says that this agreement “represents a major blow to the Trump administration’s aggressive policy toward Iran since abandoning the nuclear deal.”

    However, they reveal the dishonesty of their own spin when they also say that the partnership was “first proposed by China’s leader, Xi Jinping, during a visit to Iran in 2016.”

    Who was President of the United States in 2016?

      And we know Iran and China were deeply into trading earlier this year, when COVID spread quickly from China to Iran, where many people died….

    Gavin Newsom Didn’t Just Close Churches, He Also Banned In-Home Fellowship Meetings
    Posted July 15, 2020 by Mat Staver | 3:06PM SACRAMENTO, CA

    The Bible tells us that gathering as brothers and sisters in Christ is an important part of our faith. Matthew 18:20 says, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

    In fact, the Greek word for church is “ecclesia,” which means “assembly.” Yet, CA Gov. Gavin Newsom has decreed this basic and important tenet of worship is totally banned in his state!
