Cat on Ledge

This was sent to me by Sharon E.  It’s a Russian painting. Probably from She’s always enticing me.

Sharon says: “Toots likes to be up high as well. Who thought of it first? Toots or some unknown Russian feline? My money’s on Toots.”

I saw a video on Alice Herz-Sommer recently. She was ecstatic when she spoke of music, it was lovely to witness.

I also have those signs on my door, from the time long ago when there was more than one cat in residence!

T.V. Outside of the U.S.

Tom follows the Deutsch trail with a review of German television. Here is an excerpt.

An attitude toward sex that is equal parts pervy and blasé is one of the many reasons that German television is, like its supermarkets, superior to our version. On the show Mieten, Kaufen, Wohnen (“Rent, Buy, Live”)—which is like House Hunters if every single person on it had a budget of $800 a month and was mind-blowingly ineffectual at finding an apartment—the potential tenant was once a 21-year-old amateur porn actress who needed a special room to do her webcam work. The real estate broker responded with deadpan whimsy of a uniquely Teutonic sort.

I would love to see this show. Yesterday at the dentist, I watched an American show about house hunting and renovation, oh, blah, blah, blah. The houses were hideous (and selling for so much!), and the characters amazingly free of charisma. How I would have loved to see some inept apartment hunters trying their luck in finding an flat on a budget that wouldn’t get you a Zip Car.
