I also tend to run Chan dvds when we're getting snowed on. I get cracking on a thousand piece jigsaw puzzle, usually railroad themed, and blast through the Chan films as background. I'm so familiar with the dialogue that I don't have to focus on the tv screen, and instead, can multitask with the puzzle, the Chans, and whatever book I'm reading at the moment. Every two hours I head down to the main floor and get a refill of tea, oolong for Chan, Earl Grey for English mysteries. ...Ed K.
