Drink of the Week: Theodora Goes Wild (TCM Fest 2017 Salute #4)

Theodora Goes Wild.So, we’re back with this year’s fourth and final salute to the TCM Fest 2017. While this year’s festival was tinged with sadness, largely because of the departure from our planetary sphere of people like Robert Osbourne, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, I can also honestly say I had as good a time as ever. It’s largely the fact that, even for a committed geek like me, there’s always the chance to discover movies that I might have missed before, or if I did see them, it was in a beat-up print on the second half of a double bill on a weekday night when I was the worse for wear and in no shape to absorb good cinema.

Indeed, I honestly can’t remember whether or not I’d ever seen 1936’s “Theodora Goes Wild” before this year.

She takes offense at the suggestion and, careful to put him in his place, she orders a “straight whiskey,” and then another, and another.

This truism cannot be ignored when you enter the realm of casino games online, but it’s only part of the story. You need luck, certainly, but it’s not going to be of any use to you without at least some skill. Remember when Homer Simpson was playing blackjack and received 19, then asked for three more cards? D’oh!

Top Strategies to Filter and Stop Spam from Infecting Your Email

computers and email

If you’re worried about spam invading your email, you may be disappointed to hear that there is currently no proven method for getting rid of spam completely.

But does this mean that there is nothing you can do to at least slow down the amount of spam that your email inbox receives? Absolutely not.

Currently, your email service (such as Microsoft Outlook or Gmail) filters through as much spam as it can by moving messages that seem suspicious to the ‘spam’ folder. But as effective as your email service’s spam filter is, it’s also far from perfect, and you’ll need to take action on your own.
