Happy Birthday to the Captain, one of the very best on this forum.

Thanks Jack. We are going to the Maidstone Inn for dinner (restaurant week here in the Hamptons). Next time you're in SH, let us know!

Miss M: I have both hard and soft copies of Frederica! One of my Heyer favorites.

Porch -- My daughter had a dinner party inspired by that cookbook! She is a member of a group that has writer-inspired dinner parties. I know they did Laurie Colwin ("Happy All the Time", I'm sure I spelled her name wrong); not sure who else was feted.

Thanks, Porch! Am I correct in remembering that you, too, are a Barbara Pym fan? I know Miss Marple shares my love of Georgette Heyer. The Grand Sophy would also be a terrific BBS series. I actually proposed it when I was at Columbia Pictures, and they laughed in my face.

Well, thanks, Catsmeat. I just remember that Pamela was a real slog, and I don't think I ever finished it. What did/do you think of the movie version of Tom Jones? I thought (as a ninth grader!) it was perfectly cast. The book I'd give anything to see on film (or as a BBC extended series) is Excellent Women, by Barbara Pym, which is certainly at the top of my desert island list.

Captain, thanks for the birthday well-wishes! I learned from yesterday's NY Post that I'm one day younger than Anna Wintour, and, consequently, that 70 is the chic-est possible age! So look forward to next week without fear. Re: Tom Jones. When the movie came out I was in ninth grade and I loved it (and Albert Finney) to death. Quickly read the book, which I loved; I remember savoring every bit of it. Fielding's chapter intros were wonderful, too. Maybe it's time for a re-read. I read Pamela (different author, but same period) right after and didn't care for it much.

What I'm hearing: The Times is sniffing around a story about the many "affairs" of Mayor Pete's "husband." Apparently, Mayor Pete doesn't know about the infidelities, which are numerous. Just what I'm hearing!

Re the Dispatch: I heard that Goldberg and Hayes were awarding themselves $400,000/year salaries.

Dr. J -- Just play the music that gives you the most comfort over and over and over.

You know, I don't post a lot these days and it may be a big mistake to start again on this topic, but ... Anonomom: You have given such stupendously level-headed advice so consistently that when you make don't-talk-to-the-hand medical comments everyone pays close attention. A few years ago you said, roughly, "Cut out refined carbohydrates and refined sugars and everything else is just tweaking around the edges." Again, a paraphrase, but I remember the essence because it made so much sense -- and it worked. Which is why when you became so zealous not that long after ("I hear someone talking about 'healthy grains' and I just laugh") it was startling. You want to know how much I value your common sense insights -- I always write "Anonomom" as my primary care physician on the few occasions I seek any kind of medical care (last time was when I got a shingles shot -- which you strongly encouraged, which is why I followed up, which I thank you for!). Anyway, your mud-wrestle with Iggy really distresses me, because I think he's really the voice of reason here. A good man (Gundry) who has done marvelous things could be going down a lectin rabbit hole; God knows it's not the first time such a thing has happened. All that said, you are the best doctor I've ever had in my life and I value you tremendously. Going to assume radio silence as per usual.

Henry @ 9:45 -- Singer's not Never Trump. He's progressive on certain social issues (all things homosexual) and was an anyone-but-Trump during the primaries (funding original anti-Trump oppo research), but since the election has supported him.

Missed running into Felonia Von Pantsuit and Bill by 10 minutes at the local (East Hampton) farmer's market. They're all over the place out here. Trying to come up with a snappy salutation if our paths actually cross.

Well, I'm checking in, not that I have anything to add.
Dear Matt: In my prayers.
Clarice -- Now that's a granddaughter to kvell about! The Johns Hopkins program is supposed to be terrific -- is she just loving it?
From two threads back re: Leon Klinghoffer There was a big estate sale in East Hampton at Gray Gardens, of Big and Little Edie fame, a year or so ago (during late fall, whatever year). Anyway, the sale was hyped all over the place and fans of the movie came from hither and yon. Sally Quinn and Ben Bradlee bought the joint and Sally was giving the sale. Anyway, we got there at 7 AM for a 10 AM sale and a few souls were already on line, including a nice young (well, 30s) man who had flown in from L.A. to try to snag Ben Bradlee's desk. It was very cold, so I went to our place and brought back hats and gloves for people standing in line (including nice young man). Names were exchanged during the hours we waited and he told us his was Josh Klinghoffer. Of course we asked about Leon, and turns out he was a close relative. Harry asked him how he'd get the desk back to L.A. if he snagged it, and he said his band flew equipment between coasts and he'd put it on the band plane. Harry asked the name of the band and he said "The Red Hot Chili Peppers," which was new to Harry (!), but he was impressed with Josh's love of history. He got the desk, btw.

Threadkiller's 6:22 exactly captures what I feel about this JOM family bickering.
Thread -- Yes! Thank you. (Never SOB your posts, btw!)
Narcisco -- no, it's Theatrical Trailer, American Film Theatre. It kills me that I can't link it!
Well, my link cannot be linked, apparently. I urge you to go the youtube Homecoming (the Pinter Play) trailer for some hollow laffs.
If JOM were a movie trailer:
Per Clarice's 2:47 -- do we really want to turn JOM into this? I'm with Ig on this one.
