Sam Spade. .. "The Fairly Bright Caper".

One of my SS favorites. Who knew that in 1948, the concept of "branded parties" existed?

(Maybe I just live a sheltered life...)

Calvin Locke, I’m more sheltered than you, because I don’t know what “branded parties” means! :-/

Hi, Vision! Yes, Halloween is in the airwaves!

We’re doing fine here. Keith just finished bottling two small batches of beer, one a dark stout and one a “Bavarian” style. It was time to bottle the beer, because it had fermented in the little kegs long enough.

Otherwise, the Saints won; Bama won, and we’re hanging in. Can’t believe the election is two weeks away!

Do you have any news? Everything going well up there?

It’s great that Mr. Goldin busted that loser guy! There are some scoundrels in this world.

That’s a great photograph of his old radios. We love the old radios.

Thanks for posting, Steel. I hope you’re doing well!

Yes, he’s an amazing fellow. Imagine the space it takes to display and store almost a thousand antique radios and all the tapes.

He’s dedicated.

"Branded" as in a trade-marked brand. In the SS story, iirc, a professional party thrower is hired to "produce" an engagement party to generate publicity for the society pages.

Stay ready for an October surprise by the Dems...this is the calm before the storm. They aren't going to lose without a big fight. This week should be dramatic.

The beer sounds good.

I'm on a bbq bender. Have a 3 day weekend. It started with burgers, then smoked a turkey, today it's brisket and ribs...I'm out of control...

Keith smoked pork tenderloin yesterday evening. This evening it’s chicken to be smoked.

“Leinengen Vs. The Ants” is a favorite classic. Don’t miss it.

Thanks for posting the summaries.

You’re welcome, Dick!

I’m wondering if that Escape’s the one where the man develops a “killer” insecticide, but he runs out and the bugs overrun his house.

No. This is the one in South America where he is in the way of an ant march (if there is such a thing). I think this one is far better than the ‘insecticide’ one!

I am so sick of Ed apologizing for the way Indians are portrayed. Then adding insult to injury blames “radio 50 years ago.” Gunsmoke was an adult program trying to give an accurate depiction of life then. Indians could be savages.

Get over it and grow up Ed and all those suffering with the cancer of political correctness!

I completely agree, Vision. Quit pandering to the PC whiners! Like you said, many of the tribes were utterly savage, period!

The Kindle has not been delivered yet, although the case came. Might be as late as Nov. 26...

We went to the World Trade Center Memorial on Fri. The two pools with all the names around it are very well done. We saw names of several women that included their unborn child.

I can't tell what Amazon has done with the Kindles. They say the Touch will still be made but it's out of stock for the moment. My guess is they stopped production on the Touch to get the paperwhite up and out...and have lost lots of sales because of it. The whole thing is strange.

It was pouring down rain while we were there at the WTC, and it seemed appropriate. So many names....

A lot of people are on the waiting list for the Paper White. When I got the case, I thought it looked small. I’ve never held a Kindle, but I’m wondering if they downsized it a little.

I just read the Touch has been discontinued, replaced by the paperwhite. What a shame, I like mine so much I'm emotionally attached to it (:
