(1) Art M. in PA: That’s not Redneck Horseshoes [shown in BLAINESWORLD #824] . . . that’s Texas pony shoes.
(2) Ingrid S. in PA: Good advice in #9 Blaine. My email was compromised and changing the password thus far has helped. Also, thank you for that great quote in #10. I will take time to go further with the website. It looks like some interesting information to explore.

(5) Bruce R. in NJ: I would just to love to tell you that I am now 100% jealous of you and your lovely wife for being able to see Light in the Piazza. That is one of my favorite all time movies as Olivia D’Haviland is my favorite all time actress and i love that movie. Even without seeing all these shows myself i can sometimes feel i see them through your e-mails. Thank you very much.
(6) Amy L. in NC: I did not particularly like the movie, “Moonrise Kingdom.” I was surprised that it had received such positive reviews. I did not think it was particularly funny. I got the underlying message about the rigidity and conformity of the ’60s, but it was played out with such bizarre characters and plot that it just seemed ridiculous. I did like the setting, especially the “perfect little red and white house” with classical music playing in many of the scenes. The narrator and Bruce Willis were okay, but the plot left a lot to be desired, which affected other characters’ performances. I would not recommend this movie to anyone, especially young adolescents, who would probably not understand the creative devices used in the movie.
(7) Ed G. in NC: Ironic that we may have been at a local restaurant that has not yet gained your attention, but…
… a lovely saleslady at Belk’s this evening recommended a Jamaican restaurant called “Nine Mile” on Montford Street in a very old, very quaint neighborhood.
So, we went and the place was charming. My seafood pasta dish was outstanding. Donna was less enamored of her “Jamaican Jerk Chicken” but only because of an overabundance of tarragon. The service was great; we ate outside and watched the world go by… thanking our lucky starts once again to be in Asheville!
(8) Rick P. in NC (for those in Asheville area): Good morning!

(9) Herb S. in NJ: Landed in San Francisco and arrived at the Hotel at 7:55pm. Joan noticed that The Scottsboro Boys was playing next door. Got half priced isle seats and got to the theatre at exactly 8pm…the hotel held our bags until after the show…this was not NYC! The show was recommended by Audra McDonald..One of our favorites who said that if you see one show before you die, see this one. Sensational…a minstrel, yes minstrel, version of the famous 1931 Scottsboro case…One of the best, innovative, Mr. Marketer, shows we have seen in many a year. If it comes to NC…haha(maybe… it IS 2012…run, don’t walk to see it.
(10) Natalie K. in PA: Saw a very good movie on Netflix I recommend: Ridicule – it’s a French movie but very clever. Check it out. Also watched “The Sundowners” on TMC after taping it a while ago. I remembered it and enjoyed it again.
