Live from the Twilight Zone

Code Name Nora
Life as it is really lived in a retirement home

Octogenarian Nora is blogging live from her senior citizens' home, dubbed the Twilight Zone by the inhabitants. It is sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious, always interesting. Personally, I see the eventual makings of a book.

In the very youth-centered culture of the Internet, it is refreshing to hear a voice from another perspective, all the more so when that voice is so articulate and entertaining.

The blog is entitled Code Name Nora, and I do hope she's code naming all the other characters too. It gets pretty personal.

Hat tip to Annie at Ambivablog.

Poor King Tut

First they take his skull and put it on public display. And then, to add insult to injury, Steve Martin cashes in on the event. OK, so maybe I have my chronology scrambled. Sue me. But Martin's hoary old favourite has found new relevancy with today's news. And it's still funny.
