    A random comment on your your favourite numbers:
    Seven and thirteen – good choices!
    I became fascinated with 7 when I was 11 and I still remember that 1/7 = 0.142857 recurring. I haven’t committed 1/13 to memory – that’s a bit hard!

  2. Wow! I love “Wuthering Heights” too. I’ve read the book twice and seen about 3 different versions of the film. My favorite version is the one starring Ralph Fennes. I did not like it the first time around because Fennes “Heathcliff” was so cruel. But I read that his version was more faithful to the book than the other versions. So I re-read “Wuthering Heights” and discovered that not only does the film follow the book but Bronte’s portrait of “Heathcliff” is even more harsh than Fennes portrayed! I love Ralph Finnes in “Wuthering Heights” because he is so INTENSE! I’ve watched it so many times that I learned to play the theme song (on the piano) by ear! What is your favoirte version of “Wuthering Heights?” Just curious. (In addtion to the Fennes version, I’ve also seen Lawrence oliver and Timothy Dalton play “Heathcliff.”)

    • Wow, it’s so nice to find another Wuthering Heights fan! Although I’ve read the book several times, sadly, I have never seen any of the film versions. But now your comment made me really want to go and check at least one of them out (maybe I’ll watch the Fennes version as you suggest :)). That’s really neat you’re able to play the song on the piano by ear! I wish I had musical talent. I’ll be sure to let you know when I finally watch the movie!

      • If you get the Fennes movie, be sure to watch it twice. You may not like it the first time. I’ve had a bit of a crush on Fennes ever since. Watch his eyes and his expressions when he looks at “Cathy.” He’s totally obsessed with her. Many lines come right out of the book. Spielburg was so impressed with Fennes work in “Wuthering Heights” that he chose him for “Schindler’s List.” BTW, I don’t play the piano very well; but if I LOVE a song, I’ll take the time to learn it. The theme from “Wuthering Heights” is so hauntingly beautiful that I’ve never forgotten it.

      • Ok, I’ll definitely try to watch it twice! It would be great to see someone play Heathcliff in a way that resembles the book, with, like you said, captures the intensity in his obsession with Cathy! That’s so interesting about Spielburg too; I’ve actually never seen Schindler’s list, but have been wanting to watch that film for the longest time. Perhaps I’ll finally have to watch it 😉 And that is so neat about the piano; I would love to be able to play an instrument lol

    Christine, thank you so much for the award and the recognition! I truly appreciate it.

    I love your Fact #3 – it’s so true that we nearly always get more from volunteering than what we give. 🙂
