A perennial favorite around here, How the Grinch Stole Christmas gets a viewing even when we don't find time for some others. It helps that it's short. The Elder Son could recite this book word perfect when he was 2 years old, and there are some differences between the book and this little film. Boris Karloff provides the voice of the narrator and the speaking Grinch, while Thurl Ravenscroft (perhaps better known as the voice of Tony the Tiger on those old cereal commercials) does the singing. And Max is a bright spot for me.
The song You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch:

Because this blog does not consist of a single focus topic I chose the name Divers and Sundry where "Divers" means being of many and various kinds, and "Sundry" means consisting of a haphazard assortment of different kinds.
