:7510: 211 - Big Deal on Madonna Street - 7.5/10 - This Italian comedy features a group of small time thieves who aren't very good at it who plan to rob a pawn shop. Think of it as a sort of low level Ocean's 11 where things don't go exactly as planned. It was a decent film. :610: 212 - Zus & Zo - 6...

Re: Television Favorites!

41 - Watchmen Season 1 - I bought the Blu-Ray set last week and finished watching it this morning. I think it started out a bit slow, but soon became very good. Overall, I think it is an excellent show. Maybe not quite as good as some of the reviews, but still very nicely done.

Re: hows your day going ?

I've been feeling pretty much back to normal for the past week so that's a good sign. I went and played tennis for a couple of hours last night and that went well. Just the normal aches and pains of a 50 year old body the day after. Thanks for asking.
