Stylish Blogger Award: Thanks Tom!

I’d like to offer a big thank you to Tom over at Motion Picture Gems for so graciously honoring my blog with a Stylish Blogger Award!

According to the rules of the award, I was asked to post a link to Tom’s blog, reveal seven facts about myself, and then pass the award along to seven other stylish bloggers.

So please take a moment to visit Tom’s wonderful blog at His love of classic movies is very evident in everything he writes, and he provides so much interesting content including movie reviews, fun quizzes, and links to a ton of great resources for the classic movie fan.

Seven Facts About Me:

1. My dad instilled in me a love of sports at a very early age, and to this day I love watching sports more than most guys I know. NFL football (go Packers!), college basketball, and Chicago Cubs baseball are my favorites.

2. I was a game show fanatic growing up. Let’s Make a Deal, Press Your Luck, Sale of the Century, Joker’s Wild, Tic Tac Dough, Password, Couch Potatoes, Card Sharks . . . I could go on and on. Oh, how I miss them!

3. I have two cats who are like children to me; Wrigley, who is named after Wrigley Field in Chicago, and Quincy. No, he is not named after the tv doctor. :-) I just thought that name was so cute when I saw it in a cat name book.

4. I love trivia! I love to watch Jeopardy, play trivial pursuit, play trivia at sports bars; anything where I have a reasonably good chance of knowing the answers.

5. I never had any interest in watching James Bond movies until I saw how incredibly charming a young Sean Connery was in the movie Marnie and then watched him in Dr. No. I now want to watch all of them and decide in the end which actor is my favorite Bond.

6. I love listening to podcasts and couldn’t live without my iPod. Although it’s not exclusively about classic movies, my favorite movie related podcast/radio show is called Oscar, Oscar. If you know of or host any other interesting podcasts about classic movies, please let me know.

7.  I love to read and could spend all day in a library!
