(7 x 3 x 2) + 1/365th
Thanks for all the kind birthday wishes... and the trivia about Paul McCartney! Now, a bit of advice - please IGNORE all of the lukewarm reviews of Disney/Pixar's Cars... it is a delightful film. There are some big laughs (esp. near the end - do NOT leave until the very end of the credits!) but the thing I liked best about the film is that I didn't want it to be over. We could have spent another 2 hours in the sleepy little burg of Radiator Springs and I'd have been a happy man. Of course, there are all sorts of joys for adults with sharp ears & eyes (it took me a minute or so to place Click'n'Clack from NPR)... one that RIPS by early on in the film is a flash of birds on a power line... a quote from the short "For the Birds"! And that's just scratchin' the surface Braeden enjoyed it as much the second time as he did the first... and this even after going to another movie in the morning. (Yes, we are trying to turn our son into Roger Ebert... he he he.) This is another "must purchase" as soon as it arrives on DVD. But go see it on the big screen so you can experience the racing scenes in their full "ooh-ahh" glory.
