Hurricane Irene leaves us in the dark

Well, the lights went out around 3am Sunday morning, and hasn't come back yet.  Pitch blackness except for the neighbors who have generators (and there seem to be a good number of them).  We're fortunate that the weather post-hurricane has been quite good.  No damage at all to our house: just a few major branches down (one in our yard, one in a neighbor's yard) that hit our fence.  Phew!  Although the lack of electricity is annoying, it is good that we have nice neighbors with power.

The King's Speech

We watched this film on Blu-Ray.  Excellent!  Colin Firth did a great job, and the cinematography was interesting: everything was just slightly askew/off-center.  Richly costumed, and well acted.  Boy, my reviews are getting terse.  Well, two thumbs up!
