It was spectacular. Far exceeded expectations. So many cars. So many delightful cars. The weather was beyond perfect. The people were nice and were all having a grand time.

Lots and lots of different cars. A real trip down memory lane augmented with reminders of OUR continued GREATNESS as with the new, breathtaking Jaguar F-Type. What a beautiful car. Probably as close to perfection that you could ever achieve in a car.

Acute shortage of Spitfires. Just one Mk II. Is it really true … Have all the Spitfires rusted away? I hope not. I owned two. One red and the other pageant blue (a color I still hate).

Two Stags. Both yellow. Aaahhhh! Lots and lots of TR 6s. That might be my next purchase IF I ever have any money. There was a beautiful one, with just 9,000 miles, for sale for $21K. Wow.

A couple of Triumph GT6s. Haven’t seen one of those in decades. In the early 1970s had a friend, Dave, who owned one. He loved it. It sure was fast. But I still think it is an ugly car!

Great show. Well done. Bravo. Thank YOU.

“My Zinc Bed” – The MOST Boring Movie We Have Seen In Many A Moon! It Was Atrocious (Despite Me Agreeing With The Message).

It looked so promising and ended up being a dud.

What is even more ironic is that I agree, word for word, the arguments used in this movie against the AA. It was like hearing me rant. To me, as is said in this movie, over and over again, not drinking at all is not a cure. A cure would be the ability to enjoy a drink, occasionally, in moderation. Yes, I have had experience with AA members, and yes, I know of two who came to me for guidance given my kick about relying on your brain to help you out in such scenarios. This movie didn’t do justice to any cause. It was a boring diatribe without any redeeming virtues. Even the scene in the bedroom (above) was beyond bland.

I was disappointed. I always have high hopes for movies made in Britain and set in London.

This was a dud. Yes, the arguments about the AA probably need more airing but this, alas, did not cut it.

Shame.

See July 15, 2013 post as to why I have cut back the rants to one or two a day.


#151. It did it AGAIN. Recorded the same movie TWICE. #51 & #147. As I have said before, I record a lot of movies especially when I have subscription to the premium movie channels. Then I can go for months without a sub. catching up on our backlog. So I hit record whenever I see a promising title. I can’t keep track of what I have already recorded. That is why we have computers. Bloody Genie. Bloody DirecTV. They are so stupid.

#152. The unresponsiveness of the Genie Remote Control when you first get going is getting beyond a joke. We sit there in front of the TV without being able to do nothing other than mutely watch the channel that is playing. The delay seems to be getting longer and it was already at around 4 minutes.
