Another Jane - Eyre, that is!

Jane Eyre on Masterpiece Theatre@ 

Don't forget Masterpiece Theatre this Sunday December 30th and continuing January 6th.  This adaptation, with Ruth Wilson as Jane and Toby Stephens as a very handsome Mr. Rochester, is my favorite of all the many Jane Eyre versions.  If you didn't catch it in September, try to make a point of watching it this Sunday on WKAR-TV.

Mice with Wheels, Oh my!

You probably all know this but I just discovered you can zoom your screen by holding down the CTRL button as you use the wheelie button on your mouse!  I've been making a conscious effort to use the wheel more and the scroll bars less and I was absent-mindedly holding down the CTRL button as I wheeled down and, bingo! enormouse (sic) text on my screen.  What fun!

Moving again!

Sorry, I mispoke in my last missive.  We will be gathering on Monday nights instead - the 2nd Monday of each month.  Accomodations in the McIntyre Room were more readily available on Monday night.  We will meet on the following dates in 2008 - 1/07, 2/11, 3/10, 4/14, 5/12, 6/9, 7/14, 8/11, 9/8, 10/13, 11/10, 12/8.  We will meet from 6:00 to 8:00 pm during winter hours and 5:00 - 6:45 during the summer.
