Random thoughts from a largely-useless man.
Old radio shows, old movies, the simple life.

Thelma Ritter - guarantee of an enjoyable movie
She won six nominations for Best Supporting Actress (more than anyone in history), plus a Tony award for best actress in a musical. If you have watched old movies at all, you will recognize her face, but since she played supporting roles, you might not have known her name. But learn it, and remember it. Her performances were classic and memorable. Pick out one of her movies, buy it, and watch it - just for her alone.
