So, recently I moved hosts, and I also moved newsletter services. In the process, I screwed up. I knew this would go pear shaped, although it didn’t go as pear-shaped as it could have. I think. Or a least I hope. Without getting into the technical, some pages didn’t get moved off of testing. No big deal really in the long run, but it can be a problem in the short term. What does the above mean? Nothing except some subscription pages are wonky as is the unsubscribe page. In the short term, if you click the unsubscribe link

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Of course it does, Jules. We learned this in elementary school. Even Foster, who’s almost four, probably knows this, so what’s the big deal?

As Halloween approaches, well a month away, but it still approaches, Halloween movies are airing on cable TV and spotlighted on streaming services. As much as I love Tim Curry in the Worst Witch… I love Tim Curry in Clue even more. But then the film also includes the comedy genius of Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Martin Mull, Michael McKean, Eileen Brennan, and for those who love WKRP in Cincinnati, Howard Hesseman makes an appearance at the end. Clue is the first movie we watch to start our month longer celebration. (Which also includes sending gifs of our favorite movies to
