That certainly was not my intention. I just wanted to show a video to our Book Club members. I subscribe to a scientific video series from DISCOVER Magazine, some of which are quite good, and others perhaps not so much. The one I wanted to show is about hummingbirds, and if you think these little creatures are amazing, you don’t know the half of it! (Tell 'em, Lynn!)

The Book Club members were quite open to the idea, and there was some discussion about when to show it.
There is a television screen mounted on the wall in the small room where the Book Club meets, and at the other side of the room is located a DVD/VCR player, as well as two remotes -- one for the TV set and one for the DVD/VCR player. 

Then one member suggested the idea of starting a monthly movie club. She even volunteered to head up this activity and has dubbed it “The Sunset Film Society”.  She is bringing the first DVD -- Woody Allen’s Death and Love in July.  Then I will present Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air in August.  Yes, we do have creative people here.

Fun --

If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.

A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.

How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?

No one has more driving ambition than the boy who wants to buy a car.

There are no new sins....the old ones just get more publicity.

Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.

There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 AM. It could be a right number.

  1. Excellent selection for the new DVD club. You may find new members, too, since you don't need to do any preparation to watch.
