These are a few of my favorite things

Recently my wife and I talked about the Manchester movie scene in the UK in the late 1970s and in the 1980s.  I learned that she had not seen the movie of that era, "24 Hour Party People". I recently picked it up at the local chain store that stocks used DVDs.  I had seen it a time or two before,but still enjoyed it very much. My wife liked it, too, especially after she enabled the sub-titles. We've never visited Manchester, if one discounts the time we had to land there while on a flight to Edinburgh.

Here are some things I like, in no particular order
