It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just two days away. Where has the time gone?
Anyway... the Secrets of Harry Potter panel have just finished recording what will be Episode #62. Now that we've all watched Deathly Hallows Part 1, we were able to come together and discuss it. We started off with general impressions of the film, and then after a pause (in which Jim will insert one of the trailers), we dive into a scene-by-scene review of the film. It was fun to record this with Jim, Ariadna, and Maria. Yes, Maria. She took some time off from her NaNoWriMo activities to record this episode with us. We were all very happy about that. It was a good conversation, and I'm looking forward to hearing the finished product.
On to more serious stuff. I just heard about the miners in New Zealand. It's such a tragedy: all 29 miners were confirmed dead. They ranged in age from 17 to 62. Air that had been released when drilling into the mine had contained high levels of carbon monoxide and methane gases. Naturally, after the miracle of the miners' rescues in Chile, there was high hopes that this situation in New Zealand would have a similar outcome. Let us send our thoughts and prayers to victims and to their families.
