Show 5

I bring up the fact that there are no female cereal mascots. I dare you to name one. But Cheerios has an opportunity here because as far as I know, they don't have a mascot.

I'm going to Skate Canada. *grins*

I'm too lazy to do a movie this week. But I do have the english languages toughest tongue twister and weird facts.

Next week: Psycho!

Show 4

So I berate Show 3 because I felt and sounded so nervous. I said "basically" way too much so I try to keep from saying it.

I made my first casserole! It was delicious so here's the recipe for Rotini, Fresh Basil, Pinenuts and Cheese Casserole.

2 1/2 cups rotini, cooked and drained
2 cans crushed tomatoes in thick puree
2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
1/4 cup slivered fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil
1/4 chopped fresh parsley
1 cup grated Havarti cheese
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for sprinkling on the top

Preheat oven to 375 F. Place rotini in a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish lightly coated with cooking spray or oil. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together tomatoes, pine nuts, seasonings and parsley. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes. Add to casserole and mix with pasta. Add Havarti cheese and mix again. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Bake, uncovered until bubbly, 35-40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serves 6.

The story behind Cary Grant's disarming smile. Can you spot the single front tooth in the picture?

Also, I spoil "Arsenic and Old Lace" (1944). This is a great movie for Halloween or if you're in a playful mood. Grant's in a comedic role here and I think he does very well in it. During the era when he was acting, I think he was one of the few leading men who wasn't afraid to make fun of himself, to take on roles like this.

Show #3

So I'm back, one month later.

I completely ruin the plot of "Stand By Me" by talking about it. I think I want to do about a movie a week.

Also I explain the origin of the term "loose cannon". It's from a book called Swinging his Lead and Spiking the Guns.

Hey sportsfans!

So I'm back, after seven months of trying to forget I love podcasts. But this time, I think I've got it figured out (cross your fingers).

By the way, do you know my blog?

I'm surprised this podcast is even up, considering that I'm not computer savvy at all

Why I'm calling myself the duck thief

What the podcast gonna be about? Who knows

Talking more about my computer incompetence, very embarassing

My plug for the day Podshow
