During these storms, some people put up the most cleverest of signs. Most popular? "IRENE GO HOME!"

Nancy,
Re:"...do not trouble yourself."
That was no trouble. Think nothing of it, just a free and easy choice. Or as some people say, "Cherse."

Hi, ILHJ.

So far a relaxing day, with some rain. My sweetie is simmering his Chicken Cacciatore right now. The house smells lovely from that. Can't wait until dinner at six!

After you watch the original of "The Haunting", it might be a gas to rent the remake. Just for fun. The house itself looks really cool-- all Baroque or Rococo trappings, creepy little marble cherubs, etc. Fun to look at. But the movie failed for me. No good chills like the 1963 version. It's like seeing a knockoff of a nice painting, you know?

If you do watch both, I'd like to hear your reaction. Heck, you may like the two of them! Everyone has different tastes (my idea of a good film could be the next person's idea of a flop).

Enjoy your weekend. :)

Moticus,

Re: "doomed to die a horrible death"

Oh, you always know how to make a guy smile.

rofl !!!!

My concern is the flooding. Hope it's not too bad here. But anything we get will be better than the coastal areas of the east. At least PA has NJ between it and the sea.

Thank you, Nancy. You're a peach of a lady, if I never told you.

Thomas, I'm wondering if you used to stalk Rock Hudson.

**possible spoilers**

The Tom Who Hated a Remake,

I am in fits of laughter over your instructions to ILHJ about what to do with the 1999 movie "The Haunting". I have to gain my composure.

Now I feel generous even suggesting someone give it a spin, lol. Your review of it brings back my initial gut reaction to viewing it. (i.e., P.U.!)

Say, is that a loose piano wire, or is this house just unhappy to see me? (*BOING/WHAP!!*)

Ghostly,

Dustbin, I like that. It probably seems so ordinary to people across the pond, but it has such a charm about it because it's not what we say here in the States.

Here, it's usually either garbage can or trash can; they're interchangeable. But I've heard garbage bin or trash bin, from time to time. Maybe from now on I wil say dustbin.

RE: Ghost Story
I find that Sears story of young Fenney Bate to be similar as that of the storyline in the movie THE INNOCENTS where the young man in this movie is forced to look upon the visage of a dead servant who behaved badly in front of the children and has taken possession of them. He too dies when his governess (Actress Deborah Kerr tries to make him confront the dead sevant and only suceeds in having the young boy die in her arms).
I dont remember the actors very well from the movie GHOST STORY, but I picture FRED ASTAIRE as Ricky, RALPH BELLAMY as Sears and (I cant remember the name of the dapper older actor who plays Lewis, but his face I can see), was he not a very famous actor in his younger years? Am I right? As for the younger actors, was it Craig Wasson and maybe Kevin Kleine? Its been a long time.

Pretty good memory, Nancy...

Fred Astaire as Ricky Hawthorne
Melvyn Douglas as Dr. John Jaffrey
Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as Edward Charles Wanderley
John Houseman as Sears James
Craig Wasson as Don / David Wanderley
Patricia Neal as Stella Hawthorne
Alice Krige as Eva Galli / Alma Mobley

That might make a good future Baronzo, the film "Ghost Story".

ERRRRR!
I got Sears wrong, Melvyn Douglas is who I thought was Lewis. Who played Lewis anyway (the older one)? Now...I will have to adust my way of thinking each character as I read. Something in my mind tells me though, once Sears is in my mind as looking like Ralph Bellamy, thats the way it will stay. I remember Alice Krige the most, but as for the character Stella, as I was reading I couldnt picture her, but already I do not like her. Ricky is already my favorite character.
As I have mentioned before, I will be ready both GHOST STORY and HOUSE HARKONEN...."HEAVEN, I'm in HEAVEN and my hearts beats so that I can hardly breath....."
Books Rule! Hurricanes Drool!

That may be the nicest thing ever said about New Jersey. It is the Gardian State isn't it?

There was a time when I gave some thought to it but, well I was younger then!

I'm having boiled precious gems and minerals. There is a slight after taste.

Actually we don't eat either of those in the United States. We do, however, like hot dogs and hamburgers (hamburgers).

Re:"Maybe from now on I wil say dustbin."
Here in Coaltown that's where we bury dead peoples.

Happy Halloween,
I saw the signs up in the Drug Store.

PS oh IIRC, here in the United States if you want drugs you have to go to a place called a DRUG STORE.

Nancy Gaius Mohiam,
Re:"THE INNOCENTS"
As you may know, THE INNOCENTS is based squarely on Henry James THE TURN OF THE SCREW. It is a symbolic story with little to do with possession.
As for the actors in Ghost Story, you got them all right.

Gaius,
Re:"What there is....is all Cherse."
That whole quote is from a fairly well known movie. Anyone know it?And I'm not classy, I am drugged to the gills. With post procedural Meds. They just haven't worn off yet.
