Now that is a company I would want to work for. They sure know how to treat not only their patients, but their employees. Have fun!

Watching San Andreas. There is plenty of action but will be glad when it's over.

I went to the little local theater alone (love that) and saw "My Big Fat Greek Wedding II". Loved it and laughed myself silly. It felt great. Fun movie.

I just attended an earthquake seminar with with lectures by several FEMA people, a geologist, a fire captain and others. I found out that A) a large earthquake on the San Andreas fault can't produce a tidal wave like that, B) a large eathquake on the Cascadia fault won't produce a tidal wave here like that, but C) a 7.1 on the Seattle fault could cause a tidal wave coming into the Puget Sound 13 feet high.

Guess who lives a block from the water? I'm on the third floor, but as this is an old brick building and we were also told the library (half a block west) and the post office (a block north) would both be destroyed in an earthquake like that, I don't have a lot of high hopes for this building.

So to keep from thinking about that, naturally, I just finished watching Christine. Can you tell I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel for movies?

I had really been looking forward to seeing "The Lady in the Van" with Maggie Smith and it wasn't at all what I had hoped for although as always Maggie gave a stellar performance. I wouldn't recommend it.

I wonder how it disappointed you? Perhaps you didn't know much about her life before you saw the film?
I found it interesting but then eccentrics fascinate me.

I need to see that. I enjoyed the first one and saw it twice. I know my dad has seen the first movie several times........that's because he's Greek. :))

Since you asked, I didn't say it wasn't interesting, it was also heart wrenching, but I thought it could have been done much better. I thought it was unnecessary and in very poor taste to go through the bathroom habits of this real life poor soul. For one thing, the ending was just bizarre in my view, and it should have ended long before the last scene. The co star of the film with his two visible personalities was chronically annoying all the way through the film. With the exception of the always great performance of Maggie Smith, it wasn't worth my time. Again, that's only my opinion and the only one I'm entitled to.
