Is an interesting blog to me. Normal people, probably not!

Oscars

All times Mountain.

7:55 "Really? I came down to hear the song?" That is U2 playing "Ordinary Love".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jared_Leto won best supporting actor.
6:40 Intro was a little risque. We like Anne's dress.
6:36 We want "12 Years a Slave" to win best picture and Matthew McConaughey to win best actor.
6:34 Brenda missed a joke because she was talking. Live updates? Probably not.

I need to contact them to make sure they know I'm in favor of vaccines.

One of the most beautiful things

At 102, Reflections On Race And The End of Life wasn't a driveway moment but I was stuck in north bound University Ave traffic.

I dare you to listen and not feel something.

Happy birthday AM Hecht!

Another year older! WTG!

An oldie

Wordpress vs. Hechtmail

The free WordPress might be better than Hechtmail, but we don't charge 99 USD/year for things you get for free.

Also you don't have a bunch of javascript from other sites stealing your browser history and probably more.

If you use noscript you won't get any ads.

Of course what does family mean anymore? Am I hurt? Yes.

Kind of slow and interesting.

Walt Mossberg is leaving the Wall St. Journal

After 22 years Walt Mossberg is leaving the WSJ. http://mashable.com/2013/12/20/walt-mossberg-all-things-d/

Evidently he is doing something along the lines of AllthingsD that is evidently going down on 12/31/2013.

Didn't agree with him all the time but liked to hear what he had to say and show.

We are back

Still have one more day off. Cabo San Lucas is quite a bit like New Jersey except for the weather, food and people. We had a great time!
