…plus c’est la meme chose.

Sogal has spent many hours (whew!) revamping and tweaking this blog…with inspiration from the blogs of vilaine fille and alex ross.  (merci beaucoup, mes comrades!)

Some new features:

  • ALL links are now grouped under their own pages (see under RINGS AND THINGS)
  • new link to "Interesting Webcasts"  (just what it says – today and future listings)
  • Sogalitno’s Podcasts (inspired by La Cieca, sogal dips her toe tentatively into the podcast world and finds it exhilirating if frustrating at first.  much thanks to La Cieca for advice!)
  • tweaking of design elements, fonts and other miscellaneous items

basta!  enough web design work! 

And now to clear the palette of all that Wagner this week, a little nonsense television.  STOP reading now if you are not into Lifetime films and murder mysteries. Today, Lifetime is showing all of the TV adaptations of the Gail Bowen Joanne Kilbourn novels.

Ok, its not as bad as it sounds, some very good actors appear in the films (Claire Bloom, Simon Callow, Victor Garber, Sally Kellerman and the expressive Wendy Crewson as our indomitable heroine).  Set in Canada, they feature local actors as well as those great clean Canadian cities (no pretending its NYC!)

SG quotes from the author’s website: "But it is the added elements of the books with which her readers empathize:  complex family interactions alongside every-day domestic details, prairie urban life and work, the ever-present prairie weather, and the realistic and dimensional portrayal of contemporary Indigenous peoples."

and maybe SG needs to live vicariously for a day …

ps  lest you think SG a total slug, watching such tv is perfect for vacuuming, sorting thru mail, rearranging cds and dvds and entering into new items into SG’s database, playing with the kitties and for total relaxation – knitting.  and after all the work and long hours of the last month, SG deserves it.
