I think it was "The Red Shoes".

It wasn't released in the US until 1951, so it might have come to our little local theater some time after that.


Check out today's Doodle Google which honors an Iowa artist:

I'm so sorry, Will.

I recently found out that my adorable HS boyfriend... who I still dream about after all these years.... had suffered a stroke. It was like getting punched in the gut.

I'm sure your friend was way younger than us. I know you must be in shock. He sounds like an incredible man.

Oh wow.... I'm sure others would like to weigh in on this....

but I think it's important to comment carefully in General Discussion. I am still cautious of my comments in there. At times a simple wording choice can cause others to misconstrue your intent and then they get offended. Just observe for awhile to get the overall tenor of the discussion before jumping in with both feet.

In the Lounge, everyone is very welcoming. Don't be afraid to jump in here. There are a lot of what seem like "inside jokes", but it's just that we have heard them so many times. Don't be afraid to ask when you don't understand the references. Kittens are quite popular here! (I am a "dog" person, though. LOL)

Hope to see you often, James.

I will too.... and it doesn't matter to me who it is.

I like Elizabeth Warren, but she doesn't seem to be running.

By the time the primaries get to my state, it's all over anyhow.

I am hoping that Toomey in PA is vulnerable.

He rode in with Corbett four years ago and no one has heard from him since.

He co-sponsored a gun "control" (or something) bill with Joe Manchin, so that will alienate him with the hunters.

Fingers crossed.

This happened on Nov. 7:

1874 - The Republican party of the U.S. was first symbolized as an elephant in a cartoon by Thomas Nast in Harper's Weekly.

Here is how it evolved: http://www.nytimes.com/learning/general/onthisday/harp/1107.html


1944 - U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt became the first person to win a fourth term as president.

I voted for myself.

Congratulations to me. I am a candidate for Congress!

Sounds good to me.

I think it will be NH, NC, and KS tomorrow. Alaska to follow.
Then LA in the runoffs. Landrieu has won those tight ones before.

GA -- I hope Nunn can win the runoff, but it's uphill.
If Braley is really tied with Ernst, maybe... hopefully... IA. Too bad Harkin took the focus off Braley at the end. He's probably kicking himself today. I cannot believe that Iowans would give Harkin's seat to that awful woman.

CO would be the cherry on the sundae!
