Summer is hanging around in our part of the world and that has allowed us to continue barbecuing. We have a natural gas barbecue with a permanent hook up on our deck so it's really only when the barbecue is frozen totally solid that we can't use it but it's far more pleasant to use it when you can enjoy the deck and the sounds of the bugs being zapped in the zapper at the same time.

Happily, I just read that there is a remastered, cinema re-release of The Godfather happening in the UK. I hope that it makes it to screens in Canada. That would be something to look forward to. It'll be nice to see a classic film which has been restored and revived instead of the same old bad remakes of films that we've had shoved down our throats in recent years. I remember going to see a special 25 anniversary screening of a restored "Last Tango in Paris" in the late 90's. I was too young to see it (I was 5) when it was originally released so it was a massive treat to see it on the big screen instead of on video at home.

Some films are just better on the big screen, I think that The Godfather is one of them.
