Just so you know, I’ve accomplished nothing (nothing!) from my list of things to do today. I can’t shake this nasty cold and thus here I sit, wrapped in my blankie, sniffling and coughing. Achoo!

I’ve spent a good portion of this day watching Horatio Hornblower on DVD. It stars Ioan Gruffudd (from Amazing Grace) as well as many other fine actors. I adore the realism of life on the British ships during the Napoleonic Wars, the cunning of young Hornblower and the attention to historic detail. There’s nothing like a British naval battle when you’re stuck on the sofa with the sniffles.

Don’t forget to enter the Clocky Contest which ends Friday, June 13, 2008.

Sorry you aren't feeling like your usual perky self. Get better. Have you seen the 1951 Hornblower movie with with Gregory Peck & Virginia Mayo?

You know, it's been awhile since I saw the Gregory Peck version. I'll have to hunt those down :)

Hi Ann Marie -

I popped over here from Book Therapy. Got a kick over the clocky post - very funny.

Thanks for the tips on blogging.
