Random thoughts

In my opinion, the three part mini series Hatfields & McCoys is educational, well acted and violent but certainly worth viewing.   The music track is especially beautiful and I am looking forward to listening to it again. 

Interestingly enough the mini series was filmed in Romania.  I guess where the story played out in West Virginia/ Kentucky there were two many power lines and civilization.   The back drop to the story is beautiful and, according to the information on the web site, very authentic to the Appalachian area.

There is also an educational short about the movie narrated by Kevin Costner.  There are real pictures of the main people involved in the story and more background. 

And…

Dan and I commented on the beautiful full moon as it came up over the horizon tonight.  A while ago I checked Facebook and two friends had posted pictures of the same moon—in Ontario Canada and the Flint Hills.  I love the fact that no matter where we are, we see and enjoy the same beautiful sight.

Finally…

We seem to have accumulated a  bunch of old keys over the years.    Today we dumped out the drawer and tried to identify and tag.  It took longer than expected because we had to try them here and there.  We finally just threw a bunch of them away.  We suspect they were from old mail cars over the years.

We have no idea where these belong.  I think I’ll hang on to them anyway, though.  They are very interesting.

The Ronald McDonald House in KC collects old keys to sell for the brass. if you still have them, you should bring them in sometime.

I reconize the short key with the big handle. This key wound the clock that used to hange by the phone in the kitchen. Doug

You are right, D. We tried it.

Pablo, that is an unique way to collect donations. Most we threw away were newer types. The larger key is especially heavy and brass.
