    I was watching NBC nightly news when your face flashed up there. Hea, I think I know that lady, I said to myself. Then your name appeared. Very well said there. I have my torch fired up anytime you’re ready.
    I keep checking back here for some Halloween season material. I’m always a fan of scary movies this time of year. Did you notice that Turner Classic Movies is running Blood Feast and 2000 Maniacs on Halloween night, albeit late Halloween night? That was a bit of a surprise to see such gory movies playing on general access cable.
