Heather, super interesting from first word to last. I am addicted to my phone. I've never seen a spotless giraffe. I want to make French onion soup and the Braille story was fascinating. Really good reporting on so many topics.

I guess, LOL is out of date. What is the best replacement - IJBOL or something else? Just wondering!

So many interesting things today, Heather! The Pope's Exorcist is not the kind of film I watch - too much gore, etc. BUT Russell Crowe! An amazing performance. His Italian was beautiful, and his Italian-accented English even better. I am very sensitive to language and I was amazed. For a completely different side of Crowe, I recommend A Good Year (2006) -delightfully playful and romantic, and also Mystery, Alaska (1999) feel-good small town adventure that I have watched several times. Great post today! I appreciate all the work that goes into these Friday spectaculars.

I feel so old all of a sudden! I still use LOL and while I knew some of the above acronyms, I had no idea what many of them meant. Thanks for bridging the gap.
