Taking notes along the way

Gideon/Jericho dreamcast and other things

I had a chance to consider my dream casting for the Gideon miniseries over at MY BOOK, THE MOVIE:

Lauren Reardon—a 30-something Sandra Bullock. Lauren is an outdoorsy woman who enjoys kayaking, backwoods camping, rock climbing. Girl-next-door attractive, and very down-to-earth. Bullock appeals to me in those respects. She’s always struck me as someone you could run into at the local drugstore or mini-mart and have a friendly, funny no-drama conversation with. But there’s a toughness there, and a sense that something happened to her that she simply does not discuss with anyone.

There’s also a link to the COFFEE WITH A CANINE post from back in November.

This weekend, the BRAIN TO BOOKS CYBER CONVENTION is going on over at Goodreads. I have a booth–stop by and post a comment.

 

A handful of things, and here’s your post

No spam in the bucket ever since I changed settings so one needs to register in order to post. I don’t know if that makes posting impossible or not–if it does, email me. I’m pretty sure I am registered to post on other blogs because either my photo or the same WP pattern thingie pops up as my avatar. It’s not bad, and your info is good over multiple blogs.

The storm on Thursday turned out a fizzle here in far NE Illinois, but one is expected on Tuesday that is supposed to have more oomph. I’ve had it. I want Spring. Warmth, bees, flowers, greenery.

I am officially addicted to HGTV and This Old House. Garnering ideas for use in sprucing up the kitchen and bathroom over the next year or so. I’ll do as much as I can myself, and hire expert help when needed. I’ve only been staring at the same green (!) cupboards and yellow one-piece flooring (bath) for 25.5 years now. That’s a quarter-century. Think about it.

Time to get a move on.

Pups are fine. King has his monthly check-up next week. Fingers crossed that all continues well.

Fighting the spam fight

Even though I have an Akismet plug-in installed, I wanted to see if I could whittle down the amount of spam the site’s been getting. I changed the comment setting so that users need to register and be signed in before they can comment. However, I don’t know if that inhibits non-spam folk from commenting or not–I’m used to signing in on other sites, but I know it can be a pain. I don’t get many comments, so I’m not sure how much of a barrier it is. I do know that for the first time since I don’t know when, I have had no spam for two days running. It’s kinda nice. Let’s see if it lasts.

If it’s impossible to comment here, you can let me know over on my LJ, which is where I funnel these posts.
