Don’t move, don’t breathe….just watch.


Carol in Pennsylvania (and thanks, also, to Vera in Florida for submitting the same clip):

The cutest kitten video you will see today. Now, if this video doesn’t make you warm and fuzzy inside, I honestly don’t know what will.


Kathryn in North Carolina:

Check out this video I’m forwarding . . . pretty interesting.

Just type in a street name at the top of the form & your whole neighborhood map will pop up.

Every place you see a red balloon or thumb tack is the home of a convicted felon.

Just place your mouse over an icon & not only will the name come up, but also the crime they were convicted of.


Linda in North Carolina:

Jo in Pennsylvania:

The State of Health
With Pennsylvania facing a $4 billion budget shortfall, and the recent end of a state subsidized health insurance program for the working poor, the Bucks County Courier Times and the Intelligencer took an in-depth look at the taxpayer-subsidized health plans of the state House and Senate employees.

MY TWO CENTS: Even though this just applies to Pennsylvania, the reality is that it could probably also be written about most other stats. Kudos to Jo Ciavaglia for all her hard work on this series.


Pat H. in Pennsylvania:

Just curious… Is it fair to say that you take lots more pictures now with a Digital camera than you used to take with film cameras? ( Like the camera at the Turtles concert?) Or, do you just take select photos for your newsletter? One issue with Digital cameras that I have.. I take lots more good, neat, and interesting shots with my many digital cameras. Problem is, what do you do with them? Sad.. they simply sit on a PC and few people get to ever see them. Sure, I could print them out or make books. But that is time consuming and expensive… Sad…..


Pat, as always, asks a good question. I often think the same thing; i.e., I take many pictures that I just leave stored in my camera. But then again, though I used to like having prints in my hand, the same type thing used to happen with my 35 mm camera. I still have many pictures around that I have in a box that I’ll review some rainy day. Or maybe when I’m no longer busy doing other things.


Jean in Pennsylvania (reminding me of a great site originally mentioned in BLAINESWORLD #601):

Hands-Only CPR

Hands can do incredible things, even save a life. Learn how to use Hands-Only CPR and be ready in an emergency, visit


Ange in Pennsylvania:

A friend recorded the HBO production of Mildred Pierce for me and I just started to watch it this past Sunday night. My first thought was “This isn’t nearly as good as the original with Joan Crawford and it’s taking way too long.” However, as I only watched Parts 1 & 2, I will try to reserve my final decision until I have watched all the series.

Can you send Joe Stephens up to Yardley? Your cabinets look fantastic and just what I want in my den.


Catherine in Massachusetts:

Thanks Blaine for this week’s “computer tip”. This “old dog” is always learning new tricks and the newsletter may be really helpful.

I also share jokes with the condo community where I live and this week “the thought for the day”:) Sage advice. Hope you have a great summer.


Dan in Pennsylvania [commenting on Bat Cave, NC):

No stranger than Jersey Shore, PA!


Hayley in North Carolina:

Hope your summer is off to a great start! Have you been to see the complete work of Shakespeare by the Montford Park players. We are considering it this weekend if our schedule and weather permit. Was curious to get your take on the production.


I haven’t seen it yet, but have heard good things about the production. If you go, enjoy–and tell me all about it!


Janet in Pennsylvania:

Natalie in Pennsylvania:

This summer there will be 6 encore performances of Live at the Met. If you’ve missed any, you can see them then. Here’s the link: I plan to see Tosca on July 20.


Wes in North Carolina:

I especially enjoyed reading your review of Scott Treadway’s last performance at Flat Rock. He’s a brilliant performer and an enormous loss to our area.


Donna M. in New Jersey:

Horray!!! Scotty’s in the finals – along with Lauren – I just love it!! Two country future stars.
there were so many talented artists this year and these two are both just GREAT!
The top 11 will be here in Atlantic City in August, shame you can’t move your trip back up here to 8/13. They are also in Newark and Phila that weekend.
What a show this will be!

Mel in Colorado:

And because you’re a cavemen, so of course you weren’t offended [by BRIDESMAIDS]. Will have to see it!
