Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! Whenever I think of Valentine's Day, I always think of this episode of "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea," with Robert Duvall in it. Well, not every Valentine's Day, but this was on T.V. the other night, so I had to come up with a way to introduce it in the blog. I worked with Bobby Duvall in the cinematic masterpiece "Let's Get Harry," where he played a grizzled mercenary, helping some guys rescue Harry from drug smuggling terrorists. In "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea" he played a robotic alien who takes over a fake submarine full of actors in the early sixties. His performance was tremendous as an inhuman, uncaring being from another planet, though that one must have been easier to play, being so much closer to Bobby in real life and all. Happy Valentine's Day!
Love from Wilson World,

Shouldn't we say "Happy Holidays?" After all, Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, President's Day, and Ash Wednesday occur this time of year.

In December we said "Happy Holidays", to not offend anyone. Why then insult people who may not celebrate one of February's holidays?

One week from now, Feb. 20, there will be a rare celestial event: A total lunar eclipse. It lasts from 7:30 pm to 1:00 am, EST. The total eclipse will be from 10-11 pm.

During this time, the full moon will disappear, then turn red, then disappear again, then reappear as per its usual appearance. Don't miss it!
