I didn't really like "Cats", but I think I will go to the movie, if only to hear Jennifer Hudson sing "Memories"

I've been watching all the Apollo 11 specials on CNN, NatGeo, Smithsonian, etc... Every time I get the same shiver of joy when I hear "Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed."

Was the complaint signed with the illegible signature of John Vidurek?

And was there a wax seal on it?

I bet HRC is sweating bullets.
Uh... I believe it was NOTARIZED.

Green Acres. It's on Prime and it's adorable.
My mother is watching it on MeTV; I noticed it was on her DVR and asked her about it. She said "I love it, it's so funny!" I remember thinking it was stupid when I was a sullen teenager; maybe I'll check it out again!

I'm not sure what feature you're talking about specifically, but "Unread posts" is an option under the "Quick Links" on the upper left part of each forum page. I have this bookmarked.
