Blind Spot

Filed under: — stan @ 7:11 pm

Went to see “Blind Spot: Hitler’s Secretary” today. This was a filmed interview with Traudl Junge, who was one of Hitler’s personal secretaries. She worked for him all the way through the war, and was in the bunker at the end. It was interesting to hear her talk about him as being quite pleasant in person, and how she liked him at the time. And then to see how she had to reconcile that with what she found out after the war about the evil he was responsible for. Overall, it was very interesting, and presented a different view than most historical documentaries.

Valentines

Filed under: — stan @ 9:00 pm

This evening, we went to a special Valentine’s Day dinner the the Fenyes Mansion at the Pasadena History Museum. We got to wander around the mansion, had some nice appetizers, and finally, a nice catered dinner. We’ve done this now two years in a row, and it’s been fun each time.

It’s pretty obvious now that Lucinda is a child of the computer age.We were watching “The Simpsons” tonight when the local Fox station had some kind of technical problem. The screen went blank, save for the Fox logo. Lucinda went to the TV, turned it off, counted to 10, and then turned it back on. I tried to tell her that that wouldn’twork, since the TV wasn’t made by Microsoft, but she didn’t really understand.
