    "Chelsea Morning" by Joni Mitchell, but I prefer her song "River" which is not about the Thames.

    "Moon River" was written by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. They renamed an inlet Moon River near Savannah, GA in honor of their favorite son, Mercer.

    My fave tune, but never cared for that movie. A tad depressing, iirc.

    I used to see signs of Savannah a lot when driving from South Carolina to Florida. I've driven to Atlanta, too, so maybe seen them on that route. This was in the 90's.

    "Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil" is a great film shot on location in Savannah. Kevin Spacey and John Cusack star.

    Les cloches de Saint Eustace would wake me on a Sunday morning, a gentle reminder to go the boulangerie for fresh coissants.

    When I was a young lad in France, my mom soon found out it was necessary to give me enough francs for two baguettes if she wished to have one arrive home from my errand to the boulangerie.

    Sir, did you arrived one hour late from errands that's supposed to be done in under 30 minutes?

    I loved every errands that allowed me to roam around more than is expected of me [oh yes, the job gets done alright.:wink:].

    I love the craft of acting performed by Robert Duvall, from his first role as Boo Radley in "To Kill A Mockingbird".

    Saw Duvall recently in "Second-hand Lions" along with Michael Caine. Nice flick. And in "Get Low", another interesting film.

    Reminds me of the story of Burt Munro from New Zealand who won many motorcycle speed records back in the early 60's on the Utah salt flats. Anthony Hopkins gave an endearing performance in the movie 'The World's Fastest Indian' (2005) chronicling Munro's struggles and success'.

    (Not to be confused with Sureshs!)

    Sweden has produced a disproportionate number of great films, including Ingmar Bergman's "Justine & Juliette"...

    "I Am Curious (Yellow)" was a controversial Swedish film of the late 60's that was banned in Massachusetts for obscenity before winning on appeal in Federal courts.

    Charity and work are oxymoronic...giving of oneself frees you from the hardship of work.:)

    Since my date of choice (Kirilenko) is taken [married], I would love to take Miss Maria Sharp [never mind she is at least 2.5 inches taller than me--I'm gonna need those elevators tailored for movie stars]!:wink:
