Introduction I have been a film buff ever since I watched drive-in movies from the back seat of my parents' Jeep Wagoneer. Now that I have an HD home theatre, I can replicate the experience at home--minus the bug-splattered windshield and tinny window speaker. I post current movies in the sidebar below. I stay abreast of current events and write my elected representatives about issues of concern to me. Besides throwing my annual Oscar bash, I enjoy reading good books and magazines, cooking, traveling, fixing up my house, bargain shopping, and listening to music ranging from jazz to opera and pop.
