My October Holiday Plans
I will have eight consecutive days off in a row. The first two days, I will spend in Wuxi because I am not interested in dealing with the October 1 crowds and am interested in catching up on housework. I will the spend five days in Beixing with the wife and son. Jenny and I plan on taking some day trips around the area.
I have moderator status at http://www.wuxiguide.net.
The Roaring Twenties
A movie starring Jimmy Cagney and featuring Humphrey Bogart. I found the movie on DVD at Nanchang Temple -- only three RMB. The movie was good -- it had the B&W look and feel that I like about the old movies. James Cagney whose screen presence I initially didn't care much for, he seemed too cocky and of limited range, has grown on me. If he is in a movie, I will buy. The Roaring Twenties is a account of the prohibition era through the exploits of Eddie Bartlett, a unemployed World War soldier turned bootlegger.
It looks to me like the Hongdo Building, Wuxi's other downtown skyscraper, is ready to be moved into.
