    What famous painting that you have actually stood in front of most impressed you? I don't recall the name - it's a Gainesborough portrait of a lady (rather lovely) wearing a pink dress and what was probably a silver tissue scarf.  It's at the Huntington Library, and I remember standing in front of it, wondering at the technical skill that was necessary to make it impossible to tell if the scarf was grey or pink.

    It was published 88 years ago today. Have you ever read Mein Kampf? I checked it out when I worked at UCLA.  I didn't read all of it - it was vile.

    Of all the literary birthdays today (Thackeray, Jessamyn West, Clifford Odets, Hunter S. Thompson), or those who died today (Alger, Austen) who have you read? Who did you like the best? I've read something from each of them.  Jane Austen is definitely my favoirte.

    It's National Caviar Day. What do you think of caviar? I like caviar, but I prefer the cheaper variations to the expensive stuff.

    Strength and dignity are her clothing, she rejoices at the days to come; She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.
