    TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    I watch Peyton Place and enjoy it (sentiment may play a role in this, as my mom loved both the movie and series); and while I know of Sirk and his films, I'm not well-informed enough to compare/contrast. PP is dated in some ways, but sexual abuse is dealt with pretty frankly, and the performances are good, IMO (Hope Lange in particular, again IMO). Beautiful scenery in spots, much of the film having been shot in Maine. Soapy yes, but also a decent portrayal of small-town attitudes / life in the 50s. I try to catch it whenever I can.

    Chit-Chat

    Lots of weeds are edible, perhaps even tasty. Years back at the farmers' market, one of the guys we frequented tried to sell us some purslane; I recognized it immediately, having spent the summer cursing it as I tried to eradicate from the garden. So I let the farmer have it kind of, but we still speak. But I'm not buying the weeds (especially since I can grow so many of them without half trying.)

    I donated one to NPR a few years ago; it was pretty simple and painless.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I saw the trashy horror film The Gorgon in my youth and it must have made an impression because I got the answer immediately.

    Pet(s): Photos & Discussion

    Congratulations on the new additions @Sandman87. For what it's worth, we got our first kitten when we bought Halloween pumpkins at a farm that was giving away kittens. One of the kittens (also gray, like a Russian Blue) came tearing around the corner, stopped square in front of the hub, and meowed. Of course he came home with us - the hub is a well-known cat magnet -- and he turned out to be the best cat ever. I hope you have a similar experience.

    Congratulations to Jake! We took one of our dogs through school three times; it took a while for the whole idea that she listen to us to take hold, but it was totally worth the extra work. (She was a really smart dog, just dominant and completely untrained/wild when we got her at 6 months.)

    Dear Diary: Question of the Day(s)

    Toto (so uncool!) when I was a high school senior. The opening act, The Dirty Angels, were much better, blew them away.

    CBS This Morning

    I like Jeff Glor too; and much as I love Norah, I'm not sure she is going to do any better ratings-wise than he did,

    CBS This Morning

    It was the ratings. ABC and NBC are about neck and neck, and CBS is continually far behind. https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/evening-news-ratings-q1-2019-and-week-of-march-25/398393/
