I am a Jack Daniels guy but if you give me Bourbon as a gift, I will drink it.
Saw Star Wars: Episode VII -- The Force Awakens. It was good. Don't want to post any spoilers. If you are a fan, I think you would rate it #3 in the series. Still wondering who Rey's parents were.
And, who is this Supreme Leader Snoke ? Some theorize that he is Darth Plageuis.

I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.
Their faithful Friend and Servant, C.D.
No Alastair Sim this Christmas, that's okay, Reginald Owen will do. I always liked Leo G. Carroll as Marley.
9:15 am tomorrow on Turner Classic movies, DVR time for a viewing on Christmas Eve.

Started off at the Grand Central Oyster Bar, New England Clam Chowder with Oyster Bar Stout. Vanderbilt Hall Holiday Market still has great stuff.
Had to pick up an ugly Christmas Sweater for my son. Yeah, this one is Butt Ugly.

Union Square Greenmarket was next, the pigeons and rats are all stuffed.
Love this Banana decoration. I have a mini one for my Christmas tree.
My shopping is done, lots of gift cards and liquor made things easier as did on-line shopping.

My new kitchen ornament. It is a series of measuring cups with smaller spoons inside.
Wreaths at the Greenmarket $12. Sold !
Seafood linguini, Peconic Bay Scallops made it special. They are in season and $29 a pound.
