It is bitter, bitter cold (again!) but nonetheless I am headed to Maine to check out my new water supply and also because I have tickets to the Stone Mountain Arts Center (Brownfield, Maine, about 20 miles from my house) to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo----who would have guessed that African performers would be willing to come to the middle of nowhere in O degrees----or below!---to perform?!   But folksinger Carol Noonan and her husband converted their barn into a fabulous theater and have enticed EVERYONE---(Judy Collins not long ago!)---to make the trek.  Zulu singers/dancers will warm up a bitter cold night and it will be worth it.

In the meantime I am trying to see all the Oscar nominated movies ---and nominated actors and actresses---so have been on a movie-going spree: "The Reader" today, "Doubt" Friday night. I've also seen "Milk" and "Slumdog Millionaire"  and "Revolutionary Road" recently---and just for kicks, "Last Chance Harvey," though it isn't nominated.

I've also seen "Frozen River," just for the record.

And I wil try to make myself see "The Wrestler" even though I don't want to.

And I am really really pissed off that "I've Loved You So Long" was not nominated anything.

Okay: off to Maine and to hear "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes"

What a wonderful solution! (not to mention wonderful repairmen) I too have a narrow, winding basement stair way, the new dryer, narrowest we could find, practically had to be greased to make it down.--Jane

Last November I came home in a storm to find a steady leak of oil in my basement. It was a Friday night, so all the company could do was an emergency fix until they got a whole crew out the next day. I was bemused when I learned the only patch that would reach the necessary spot was of all things, a thick layer of Ivory bar soap. There seems to be a bit of MacGiver in these oil repairmen.

ah, the powers of American ingenuity :) I didn't realize the furnace has gallons of oil in it.
