I’ve really been enjoying the TV shows on Netflix. I watched through Bones, How I Met Your Mother, Warehouse 13, and Eureka. If you notice a trend… It only stands to reason that Doctor Who was on my list. They rebooted the show starting in 2005, and I’ve been working my way through all the episodes they have of Netflix. (I would like to go back and watch some of the original series when I’m done.)
I’m at the beginning of the 5th season now, and I love it. I feel that I’m living in a world where the Doctor lives, and it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if a big blue box appeared in front of me and the Doctor pops out. Watching all these episodes certainly is having an interesting effect on my nightly dreams… they have gotten very strange. ;-)
I don’t really have much else to say on the subject… I just felt it was worth a mention since I have spent so much time watching Doctor Who recently. :-) Since this is twentysixcats, it’s only appropriate to close with a meme of Doctor Who + cat. :-) It just made me laugh outloud. (It will only make sense if you’ve seen season 1.)
We enjoyed watching the Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in London last night. The Olympics have always been a part of my life, and I completely missed the last Olympics in China, so I’m excited to get the chance to watch them this time. :-)
I have been reminiscing of Olympic moments that have stood out to me. For sure, the 1996 games in Atlanta are the highlight of my memories. We were on furlough that year, and we – along with the entire city – had Olympic fever. I was 13, so old enough to understand and have memories.
Of course, my favorite was gymnastics. And 1996 was the year of the Magnificent Seven. We followed the competition closely. It was so exciting that everything was taking place only an hour away! And who could forget Kerri Strug’s amazing vault that clinched the team medal for the United States? Tears still spring to my eyes when I watch it.
About 120 Pearl Harbor survivors were registered to attend Wednesday’s ceremony.
The gradual loss of the World War II generation has accelerated, and this year, perhaps more than any before it, evidence of a tide change is inescapable.
The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, founded in 1958, is dissolving December 31. The passing of time, the difficulty in finding chapter officers and the health of its 2,700 members have taken their toll.
