1. Back to back this evening, two entertaining, if very different, movies.
First up: The Goodbye Girl, where it's hate at first sight when a down-on-her-luck ex-dancer (Marsha Mason) meets a motor-mouthed actor (Richard Dreyfuss), while her daughter (Quinn Cummings) provides a running commentary.
Then there's The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, with a trio of likeable stars and some surefire running gags.
Anyone who goes into a negotiation without knowing who's on the other side is going in blindfolded. It doesn't make any sense. You should study the person on the other side of the table. - Richard Holbrooke

2. And from the sublime to the ridiculous ...
Loy and Grant to ... Thunderbirds.
I used to love watching them. In my first place in London, our Saturday ritual, before going out, was to have our dinner
and watch Thunderbirds at 6.00, and Robin Hood at 6.30.
Very mature, we were. But it was fun.
Liberty without learning is always in peril. Learning without liberty is always in vain. (John F. Kennedy)
