Re: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Handmaid’s Tale was also made into a mostly forgotten 1990 movie with a cast including Robert Duvall, Faye Dunaway and Natasha Richardson. Agree the movie was forgettable, with the exception of Natasha Richardson - quite a presence, and more than held her own with Robert Duvall at the height of...

Couldn’t remember “10 Downing Street” in time.
Need to memorize Perkins; she shows up regularly.
Faulkner has been on my list to read for ages, but hasn’t percolated to the top yet.

The rest were instagets.

Re: Thursday, December 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was the clue correct when it said meteors burn up due to friction? The NASA web site implies this. But I assumed they burned up for the same reason rockets need heat shields. They compress the air in front of them, thus super-heating it. Not to disagree with NASA, but this web site agrees with that...

Instaget FJ, saved me from FJ ignominy for the week.

LT: South Dakota, Vermont, "25 or 6 to 4". I’m not a fan of Chicago, but Terry Kath’s guitar solo on “25 or 6 to 4” is one of the all-time greats.
