Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

And second: I just heard that one of my favorite “media personalities”, James Garner, passed away (I no longer turn on my TV, or read newspapers, so I’m late to that awareness).

You know, I liked him, and believed his performance, in every single thing I saw him in. It’s a real shame Netflix doesn’t have Maverick.. or I’d be starting a tribute ‘movie marathon’ now.. (I loved him in one of my fave war movies, The Great Escape, and also one of my fave Westerns, Support Your Local Sheriff! )

I’m watching Move Over, DARLING right now. One of his I’d somehow missed seeing before. (Yah, I remember now why I missed it. Wasn’t ever a Doris Day fan, and plus, it was a remake of a Cary Grant movie.)

There is a good tribute movie clip sequence, and article, here.
