James T. Wheeler - Still the Best
My wife and I believe that "A Christmas Carol" is one of the most important stories every written, not only for the holiday season but for all times during the year. We recently watched all nine versions we have accumulated through the past 20+ years. These include the ones with Seymour Hicks in 1935, to Patrick Stewart in 1999. This 1951 production, starring Alistair Sim, is the best. What we like about it most is how Scrooge is depicted after he's visited by the three Christmas spirits. He is totally transformed. He shows unbridled joy in being released from bondage to greed and contempt for his fellow man. This depiction is unmatched by the other versions. The colorized form of the movie is outstanding and adds a good bit to the story-telling. If anyone wants this Dickens classic in its finest incarnation, this is the DVD to get.
Steve - Elegant Looking Router System
This elegant looking router system is definitely a piece of tech you don’t need to hide above the ceiling tiles in the basement. I placed my router component on a glass wall shelf in the downstairs family room. It is nearly dead center of our home’s lower level. The satellite component is centrally located on the main floor of the home sitting on the desk in the foyer. It looks very nice sitting there next to some porcelain figurines, almost like a piece of art itself.
