Favorite Movies The Thomas Crowne Affair- the remake- not the original- which sucked with all of its split screen techniques that just gave the audience a headache that made it hard to follow the plot. The Saint with Val Kilmer, Steel Magnolias, Fried Green Tomatoes, Driving Miss Daisy- sorry, I'm absolutely kidding about these last three, True Lies with Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Psychologists paid by the music industry try to convince us that plants grow better with music, that sex is better with music, that babies grow up smarter listening to music. Who are they kidding? Why don't they grow up and face reality by reading instead? Well you know what I mean...
Favorite Books Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Black Cherry Blues by James Lee Burke, In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead by James Lee Burke, anything by James Lee Burke, The Ninja by Eric Van Lustbader, The Miko by Eric Van Lustbader, Dracula by Bram Stoker, Hot Springs by Stephen Hunter, Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter, Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, Chi Kung: A Self Care Approach by Dr. Douglas Chung
