Friday Relaxing ...with Alfred Hitchcock

So, I'm recovering from over stuffing myself yesterday. Good company and lots of good conversation with family.
Now I'm just relaxing with TCM on the tube as they play some of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock movies.

Can't go wrong with these thrillers. Set the TiVo if you can't enjoy now. Maybe your in one of those Black Friday lines....not me, I'm staying away from that madness

Anyways, here's a clip that may entice you....

Ever since I can remember Any Williams has heralded in the Christmas season with this holiday song

I'll still think of him and this song every Christmas to come.

Elections + 2 Weeks

After the elections I just had to steer away from the news altogether. I went through an number of stages, most, who were disappointed with the election results, went through.

Anger, disgust, sadness, prayerful, contemplation, realization, and now while I'm not at the "at peace" stage, I'm more accepting of the state of life we're in today in our communities and a nation as a whole.

Accepting but not disengaged, and not without a path to follow. I came across this article by Fr. McCloskey that outlines much of my feelings.

Have a read and here's a thought about a comment or two.

...hello is anybody out there?
