  1. For books, I agree with anything by Bill Bryson - he is one of my go to authors for comfort reading - and anything by M.C. Beaton - the Regency books, Agatha Raisin and Hamish MacBeth. Also Rhys Bowen, especially Her Royal Spyness or Molly Murphy series and Laura Childs has several series - my favorite is the tea shop set in Charleston. Finally I recommend Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand to anyone who hasn't read it - I cared so much about the darn horse by the end. Have a great trip. Re: Michael Jeter - he was a wonderful stage performer. If you can find footage of his performance at the Tony awards from Grand Hotel The Musical, it is to see pure joy in motion and his Tony acceptance speech the same night was grace and gratitude personified.

    Who is... James Holzhauer?

    Thanks Abstract. I will check it out since I did have to pay some attention to the road while I was listening.

    Who is... James Holzhauer?

    There was a funny story on NPR'S All Things Considered today by the reporter who is the "other" uncle to James' niece and nephew who were two of James' early shout outs. The reporter seems to really like James but is jokingly disappointed to have lost his cool uncle points. Sorry I can't remember the reporter's name - I was driving while listening.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Also Kismet that Kismet showed up in the Musicals Category. 😂 Teebax - trust and believe, I am sure the game is different from the in studio and arm chair perspectives. Heck from my arm chair I would pass the on line test magna cum laude. On the computer, not so much.

    I too was sad about Jane Addams being a TS. FJ was an instaget for me. My late father did graduate work with a descendant of John and Priscilla in Boston in the 50s. A dry cleaner gave that John Alden a hard time about picking up some laundry until he produced i.d. So my dad stepped up next and announced he was Miles Standish. The dry cleaner was not amused.

    S03.E21 Locked in the Basement

    I understand what prior posters are saying but I am enjoying the show and I have a new favorite line - "She's the cilantro of people." I confess that may find its way into a conversation soon.

    Hey Teebax- you did us proud! Loved the ear tug ala Carol Burnett (probably showing my age again). Mother Grundoon and I were rooting hard for you but the guys were so quick. Congratulations on getting FJ - The Miracle Worker is one of my favorite plays/movies but don't know if I could have pulled Sullivan out in time - it might have come out Annie Bancroft.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I am trying not to be snarky (to honor my pledge until after Teebax appears) but holy crap, if Everly Brothers with a picture and Bye, Bye Love in the clue and The Love Boat with Fred Grandy, Gopher and Congress in the clue are TSs, I am just going to book my room at the home for ancient bewildered Jeopardy viewers. FJ seemed so obvious that I started second guessing myself.
  9. Tommy Tune is an amazing performer and incredibly tall, even sitting down - one of my favorite NYC memories was almost tripping over his feet in the crowded lobby of the Algonquin Hotel one December day. He was very nice as I was trying not to be swallowed up by embarrassment.
  10. 23 ounces. I was surprised by the size and am hoping I will be able to eat it in a timely fashion. Luckily Easter ham has been helping. FYI- the shipping is somewhat costly but I got it very quickly.
  11. After all the Cheese Shop talk (which I may have started this go-round), I gave myself an indulgent Easter treat and ordered a jar. Lots of yummy sandwiches being eaten in the Grundoon household. I don't think it's exactly as I remember it but it's darn close. I may try Browncoat's recipe next - love the idea of the $16.93 W&M cookbook - will have to try to find it. Also thanks for whoever posted about Still Standing on Amazon. I stumbled across it on CBC this year and would love to see prior episodes.

    What are... Jeopardy! experiences?

    Teebax- how exciting! I can't wait to watch. I agree with you about the Getty. It has probably been 20 years since I was there but agree how impressive it was.

    AuntiePam - I agree I have heard Brigade more than Battalion but apparently both are correct. I also agree that it would have been interesting to read the gentleman's experiences. I enjoyed the whole category about the Spanish Civil War - Guernica has always been one of my favorite paintings. I can still picture where it used to hang at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    I almost gave up rooting for anyone when Jimmy Stewart was a TS. That ought to be illegal. I also got the Abraham Lincoln Battalion. My dad gave serious thought to joining it in his late teens but had to stay home to help support his family when my grandfather became terminally ill. Good game and it was good to see a competitive one. I now have the Rice-a-Roni jingle caught in my head.

    Mindthinkr - enjoy NOLA- I had such a great time there last month. I agree with Abstract- getting a TS is sweeter in the James era but when no one rang in on Rocky Mountain High, I started second guessing myself. Now I just feel old if it was before their time. 😂
