Mama always told me not to look up with my eyes at the sun.
But mama, that's where the fun is ...

My wife and I once had the distinct pleasure of attending a dinner party hosted by Dr. Kumar Patel, inventor of the carbon dioxide laser, and his gracious wife. I don't normally like such functions, but they were the finest and most gracious host and hostess you can imagine. There was no talk of science, only life, and Mrs. Patel was quite skilled at keeping the conversation flowing. She happily discussed during the evening how much she and her husband loved the film, "Casablanca." My wife and I have the same feelings toward "Dr. Zhivago." I don't know what it is about the film, but whenever I'm channel surfing and this film is on, we stop and watch it right through the end. Anything else we were doing will have to wait.
