  1. I’ve had people tell me they can’t understand the British accent. One person said that’s why she didn’t get into the Harry Potter films. Seriously! It’s the same language; I don’t see what’s all that difficult about it. Kids don’t seem to have a problem following what Hermione and Ron are saying.

    I actually kind of liked the Men Behaving Badly U.S. version when it came out. The U.K. version is far superior, I’ll admit.

    But yeah, that American version of Coupling was awful.

  2. Bob, glad to hear St. Louie has a Mardi Gras. It’s such a large part of life in Mobile Al. There are nearly 50 different societies and each has parties and events through the year with Mardi Gras being the highlight, but all of the other holidays have dinners, balls and other celebrations for the various groups including the formal debutante season.

    Mobile’s peaks at about 400K visitors on the parade route, with each season having 22-30 parades organized. Mobile’s is the nations oldest Mardi Gras and was formed when Mobile was the French Capitol of Louisiana. You never here about Mobile’s events on a national level, and most people in Mobile seem very content with that.

    Growing up in Mobile meant you had the week off from school every year for the culmination of the Mardi Gras Season.

    If you would like to see a neat look into Mobile Mardi Gras, my friend Margaret did a documentary about it called, “the order of myths” see if it is available on Netflix or anywhere else.

  4. Interesting documentary, the order of myths, I wonder if anything has changed since 2008 when this documentary took place.
