I compare Saskatoon to Edmonton in looks and agree that it's prettier, rhondam. Regina doesn't have any naturally growing trees and I heard the capital was supposed to be farther east but the politicians way back when had property in Regina and wanted the train to go through there. I enjoyed my stay there because of some good friends but didn't love the lack of hills nor the weather.

Big time Jimmy Stewart fan. As far as Hitchcock goes, I've seen a bunch of his work and he was amazing at what he did. His real life persona ruins a lot of it for me, though. It's the same thing with me and Woody Allen films. It's so hard to seperate the person from the director.

Oh yeah DA! My family always watched Alfred Hitchcock when I was younger. Hmm maybe that's where I got the horror movie enjoyment! laugh out loud

rhondam: I loved Hart to Hart as well. They were so perfect together.

Also, Soap! That show killed me, it was so funny. It wasn't on very long.

He was in an Italian band. They played at wedding and dances. He was in the band with all the original guys for over 25 yrs. He remarried to a, well lets say someone not so nice as me, Smiley and he quit! I guess she didn't have friends to play cards with. Smiley

snipped..

We moved to Oakville, Ontario after but I still remember it so vividly. My favourite was that first night driving to my aunt's and uncle's house in all the snow and seeing all the Christmas lights on the houses. I had never seen anything like it and it was so magical. Still love seeing the Christmas lights and all the decorations!

You're like 45 minutes from me!! My nephew married a Croatian girl. Lovely family, very similar traditions as Italians. The Christmas lights are fantastic this year. I think because we've had good weather, I'm not mentioning the S word, everyone went OTT. It's so pretty, I love seeing all the lights when I'm driving at night.

Big Al Hitchcock fan, too. In my area we have Twilight Zone and AH marathons here every NYE on tv.

GA my parents still live in Oakville, but I am living in London now. Are you in the Hamilton area?

Another Hitchcock fan here. I still say The Birds is the scariest movie ever. Your odds of being eaten by sharks or attacked by murderous crazies is pretty small, but those birds are everywhere! Maybe Kaitlyn watched the movie and that is where she got her bird phobia?

Also love Rear Window, North by Northwest, Rebecca, The Lady Vanishes, 39 Steps, Dial M for Murder, To Catch a Thief.

Other favourites include Laura, The Third Man, Sabrina, Charade, The Thin Man series, and pretty much most of the screwball comedies...Some Like it Hot, Bringing up Baby, It Happened One Night. Now I may have to go and re-watch some of these.

Scariest movie ever to me was the 1973 version of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.

Sprite: right I got confused with the Oakville reference. Smiley I'm in the Niagara Region.

I didn't now about the AH and Twilight marathons on NYE? I'll have to look out for it.

Don't be Afraid of the Dark! Yipes! That was so scary!

Who could forget AH's Psycho! That screeching music in the shower scene rung in my ears for so long! laugh out loud

I think the scariest movie I ever saw was The Birds. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane and Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte were very close seconds and thirds.

I cannot do scary movies at all. If I have to watch, then every muscle is tensed up the whole time! I somehow did see The Birds or part of it and it was horribly terrifying to me because I too have a bird phobia. So does my sister. It really is only the flapping sound and the swooping towards us that's freaks us out. People don't understand this fear and it is quite embarrassing to uncover your head and stand up from being in a huddled ball on the sidewalk to find everyone on both sides of the street staring at you! I'm sure we look especially hilarious when it's both of us! I have to think ours began when we were little kids and a bird (sparrow I think) somehow flew down our chimney and was flying around the house frantically and my dad freaked out and took off out the back door leaving us there. I mean we followed close behind but I think we learned to be petrified. And I have a cat phobia too but not kittens. so does my mom but not my sister.

I never really liked the horror movies and was terrified of vampires when I was a kid. I have seen a couple of Hitchcock movies and the Birds probably scared me the most. I loved Rear Window and Jimmy Stewart in general.

It's that time of year to watch "It's a Wonderful Life". I love the old Christmas movies best. "White Christmas" is one we watch every couple of years. The old "Miracle on 34 St" with a young Natalie Wood is one of my favorites and of course there's "A Christmas Carol". There's lots of newer Christmas movies and one we watch every year is "Love Actually".
