Re: Anyone Seen Breach?

We watched it this past year in my english class, to accompany our reading of A Tale of Two Cities (there's a spy in that book, right?)

It definitely wasn't an awful movie, especially compared to other things we had to watch in that class (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069249/).

Re: "Sweet Caroline"

I'm 16, and Neil Diamond is one of my favorite musicians ever.

I was lucky enough to see him live when I was maybe 6 or so, and I still remember nearly all of it.

Sweet Caroline is a great song, along with basically all his others.
