Her confusion over Tolstoy/Trotsky remained, even after the correction of the name. She still maintained that Trotsky became a Christian at the end of his life. However, here is a quote taken from his own words: "I shall die a proletarian revolutionist, a Marxist, a dialectical materialist, and, consequently, an irreconcilable atheist."

Ingenius. Thank you for the ideas. I must make a cage to fit in the cab of my pickup truck. While I travel, I don't want to leave my five cockatiels in the travel trailer--they should be with me to enjoy with me all the sights along the way. You have given me many good ideas.
What makes the audio to stop every minute or so. Help!
I'm only into the second chapter. However, I expected something more from a book so highly touted. I won't give up yet, but Fitzgerald needed to come up with something better. If he was trying to reveal the insipid lives of the 1920s people with delusions about their own worth, he succeeded. Too bad his own writing, especially the dialogue, was so lackluster, as well.
Just wish I could understand that squeakie little singing--and talking. Why does it have to be sped up so much?
Thank you for a lovely movie.
I'm not a webmaster, just someone who opened a blog using blogspot.com. I don't understand how to do the things you suggest. I don't even manage to navigate my way around as I used to when first setting up the blog. Things have change in the interim. Some European (Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian?) entity uses my email address so it looks as though I've posted stuff about soccer sports. Now I'm getting spam, too. I don't want to lose my original posts, but they're hidden back and among stuff now. What a job to recover it! Help!
Been a long time when my sweet husband died with the sound of this lady singing "Slumber My Darling" soothing his going. Now every soft melody she sings brings tears to my eyes. Don't know when someone new will come my way--but she makes me long to feel it all again. Thank you, Alison Krauss.
Finally! Strong women!
And why is it ALWAYS a woman who screams?
Too bad the Part 1 is screwed up. It seems to be a later part. And when I tried to comment, it sent me to another place instead of allowing me to write. Or maybe the later version of the movie simply begins with a prequel missing from this one. I watched this years ago, though, and remember the bus trip but not much before it.

I've had a long, full, interesting, happy life -- so far, it's not over yet. My creative talents and desires are pretty much in a muddle tangle inside me, with books and music and art like the Stooges all trying to get through a door at the same time. I plan to live to at least 90, so I still have a few years to realize some of my dreams. I think I've been too busy enjoying my life and loves. Oh, and I love learning. My sister says, "Beverly has to know everything!" As I said, busy.
Hmmm, I should have saved my Introduction for this box. So, I'll just say here that I went back to college in 1974, graduated 1978 with a BA in psychology; went on first-ever backpacking trek in Sierras 1980; came back and entered university at SB CA in master's program in religious studies in 1980; met husband-to-be Tony on Feb 12, 1982 and married him Dec 22, 1982. We traveled across and around U.S. in 40-foot trailer, consulting here and there. Well, I can't pack a whole, long life into this little box. Maybe there's enough for a short, human interest book one day.
