Dvořák’s Latest Video

Cidu Bill on Apr 24th 2014



(If you don’t see the video, click here)

I’m trying to decide whether I like or hate the concept. It’s certainly going to color how I listen to this symphony in the future (as many videos do).

The rationale behind the video is here.

Yeah, I know that’s not a poodle, but I was just in the mood for some alliteration

Mrs IBB

Yes, now even she’s sending me e-mail. With photos!

Photos of a broken chimney, granted, but you can imagine how this could get very awkward…

Okay, I guess Disney did give supporting roles to mushrooms in both Fantasia and Alice in Wonderland, but…

Yes, this is the genuine article. Bonus points to anybody who can explain why it’s red and white.

And as a matter of Geezer Pride, can we come up with one line each (just one line per person) without cheating?

There’s a hold-up in the Bronx.

March of Dimes

Cidu Bill on Apr 20th 2014

marchtohelp.pngEarlier this month I said that this was Year Twenty Three of my son and I making the walk, and added “can that possibly be right??” In fact, it was not: this is only Year Twenty-Two. Sorry.

Some updates and explanations: thanks to a incredible outpouring of generosity, we are already well past last year’s total (as well as the last-year’s-total-plus-one-dollar that was this year’s original goal), so I raised the goal just for the heck of it. This was the eighth year in a row that we’ve exceeded the previous year’s total.

Just for the record: 2012, $594; 2103, $677; 2014 so far, $698.

The competition with my wife’s office isn’t going to be a fair one, this year: not just because you guys are so awesome, but because for various reasons she’s been working from home for most of this month.

Seven days to go…

This tradition ended for my family after my brother thought it was a good idea to hide the matzoh in the chandelier.

This was Monday’s strip. How could he have known, last month, how freakishly warm Monday would be?

(We saw 80 degrees Monday, followed by snow Tuesday night. Remember when we used to have “seasons”?)
