Happy Thanksgiving!

General Thanksgiving
By the PRESIDENT of the United States Of America

WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God --- to obey his will --- to be grateful for his benefits --- and humbly to implore his protection and favour: And whereas both Houses have, by their joint committee, requested me "to recommend to the people of the United States, a DAY of PUBLICK THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"

NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States, to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be: That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks for his kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favourable interpositions of his Providence in the course and conclusion of the late war;---for the great degree of tranquility, union and plenty, which we have since enjoyed;---for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish Constitutions of Government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;---for the civil and religious Liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;---and in general, for all the great and various favours which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
AND ALSO, That we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions;---to enable us all, whether in publick or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good government, peace and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York,
the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

This Week at Classic Cinema Online

Welcome to a new week!

I know some of you have been excitedly waiting for more action filled movies, so I have a few of them.

This week I'm introducing martial arts films to our billboards. I had a couple of them to start with but one of them had problems, so we're starting off with only one of them, I'll introduce the other ones next week.

BUT -- first things first. . .

Before I get to that, though, I have a site announcement. I really enjoy communicating with participants, some of you communicate with me by way of our Classic Cinema Online Myspace and others through email and here.

I've decided to start a new category on the forum for those of you who are interested in movie information and who would like to review some of our features. It's named after Jonathan, one of our participants, and it's open to everyone for discussion and reviews. Jonathan seems to have some interesting movie tidbits that he posts in the chatbox, and since I enjoy what he is writing I thought I'd create a special posting place in the forum for him and those of you who'd like to join him.

If any of you would like to post a movie review and it's particularly interesting, I'll post it here on the blog, too, to draw attention to it for you.

And now, on with the shows!
As promised, we have a few extra movies this week, and I hope to start reading your reviews in the forum. :)

Here's this week's line-up:
*Hot Rod Girl
*Prehistoric Women
*The Sign Of Four
*Image of Bruce Lee
*Blonde Savage
*'Neath Brooklyn Bridge
*Savage Guns
*Trinity Is Still My Name
*Two Gladiators
*The Admiral Was A Lady (THIS MAY TAKE A MINUTE TO LOAD - it'll look like nothing is there, but it'll suddenly appear after it's loaded)
*Hoosier Schoolboy
*The Great Dan Patch

Enjoy! And have a terrific week!

This Week at Classic Cinema Online

For this week, there are two new features. Next week I'll make it up to you all with some special features and more features than I normally put up.

My Love For Yours
Thor and the Amazon Women

Coming Next Time - I'm going to start playing some of the Martial Arts films, and I have some more Spaghetti Westerns, along with some other genres.

I'm also working on a master movie list so that you'll be able to see which movies we already have without having to choose a genre. That will be ready by the first of the year.

Have a great rest of the week!

Been Off Line

Hi everyone;

I just wanted to let you know that, because I've been off line for a couple of days, our updates should happen on Tuesday sometime (USA time), barring any unforseen circumstances. I apologize for any inconvenience to you, and I'm looking forward to getting back on track.

Thanks for your patience!

Love Ya's All!
