    S07.E07: From Russia with Drugs

    One thing my husband pointed out about the female detective is that she is sadly mistaken if she thinks she's going to be treated any better in the private sector. Now of course if this is all a plot, and she's going to be working for Reichenbach, then I guess that won't be a problem.

    Book vs Show Comparisons: Was It How You Pictured?

    Thanks for the list of differences, it's been a few years since I read the book so I didn't remember all of them. I do remember that she was reading binders or notebooks detailing the organization and past events, and it looks like this has been changed to videos, which makes sense for a movie.

    I enjoyed the show too, I need to watch some shows that are fairly light and easy to follow. I also love Alan Cummings and Naveen Andrews. One thing I noticed (since I always read the credits at the beginning of the show), is that the actor who plays the Hot Nebraska Cop is named Travis Van Winkle. And he's investigating the case involving a victim the New York cops are calling Rip Van Winkle (though he is calling his victim Sleeping Beauty). Coincidence? I think not.

    LSSC: Season Four Talk

    It happened to me too. Fortunately, we have CBS All Access (to see Star Trek Discovery and Twilight Zone) so we switched over to that and saw the end. We have Charter Spectrum as our cable provider. No idea what happened.

    S06.E16: Mt. Everest and Sherpa people

    This is my friend Crabby Normal (i.e. Frankenstein's monster). He is the first reanimated human to ascend Everest. He didn't have to worry about needing additional oxygen or food.

    I thought of that, but why keep the register in his desk at work? Your boss could search your desk at any time. I mean, I know it was just a convenient plot point, but I would have liked it better if they'd found the register somewhere other than his office desk.

    One thing that seemed strange to me was the tech company employee they were investigating (the one running poker games or something) who was writing paper checks and kept a paper register in his desk. Who writes paper checks anymore? Wouldn't a tech guy just write electronic checks, and keep the info on his own private computer at home?
  8. I enjoyed reading the Aurora Teagarden mystery books by Charlaine Harris, they're fun little cozy mysteries. The main character is a librarian who (of course) solves crimes. She is described very frequently as being short, with brown curly hair and large glasses, and not conventionally attractive. Hallmark made a series of movies from the books, and the main character is played by Candace Cameron Bure, who is tall, blonde, and gorgeous. I saw only part of one movie, Three Bedrooms, One Corpse, and bailed after 10 minutes. In the book, the murder victim is found tied to a bed dressed up in skimpy lingerie. It's an important part of the plot because the police at first assume the victim was killed after a sex game gone wrong. In the movie, the murder victim is found fully clothed outside the house. Now I understand Hallmark movie couldn't show any nudity, but they could have shown just the arms or legs tied to the bed, maybe a glimpse of the lingerie. I have no idea how they changed the rest of the plot, since I turned off the TV at that point.

    This article might help: http://www.howtocleanstuff.net/how-to-remove-rotten-food-odor-from-house/ It suggests turning back on the freezer and freezing everything again before you throw out the food. Then clean the freezer, starting with bleach mixed with water.
  10. Thanks for the info. I just got around to watching this (lots of shows to catch up on). I thought that Jose Antonio Vargas' story might have had something to do with this. I remember reading his story when it was first published in the New York Times. Like Mateo, he was brought in as a child and didn't even know he was illegal until he tried to get a driver's license. He later became a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.

    Pet Peeves

    They probably weren't there yesterday. Spiders build webs pretty fast Also They're building webs where house flies and other insects fly. It always annoys me when the presence of spider webs are used to imply that any area is abandoned or disused. I see spider webs between bushes in my backyard that appear overnight.

    Season Three Talk: FFwSB

    I liked the sex education lesson Sam gave. I couldn't believe the first guy she quoted who seems to believe that you get pregnant the second you have sex. It can take days for the sperm to reach the egg, and then 6 to 10 days for the fertilized egg to implant itself in the uterus. Where did he get the idea it happens instantly?

    I had heard of Sam Rayburn (because of the whole Congressional Office Building thing) but I didn't know much about him other than he was a Texas Congressman. I had to look up all the other stuff on line.

    Sam Rayburn is actually pretty famous, the Congressional Office Building is named after him. I'm not surprised there are rumors he was gay, he was married for only a few months when he was 45 years old. During his lifetime (he died in 1961), homosexuality was illegal, so it's quite possible he was a closeted gay man.

    My husband doesn't have to imagine. He accidentally mowed over a rabbit den hidden deep in a wild area of our backyard. Yes, they will indeed pop their heads up to see what the noise is.
