I'm pretty sure there is no Clint Eastwood movie that contains a scene like that. Do you think you could be thinking of some other actor?

On the other hand, I personally have been in that exact situation many times (in diners and other types of restaurants), and if Clint or anyone else would have taken out a gun, shot out the speakers, and then quietly and politely returned to drinking his coffee, I would have been eternally grateful. (Provided, of course, that no one was hurt by the shrapnel.)

Which movie had the scene where Clint is in a diner, sitting at a counter, & the bad music disturbs him. He pulls out a gun & shoots out the speakers, then returns to quietly & politely drinking coffee? 
I have tried for years to recall which movie this is from. Thanks so much for help.

The workers over at the Vegemite factory wanted to celebrate the birthday of their best customer!

That looksl ike some tasty food they've got. Too bad they want to put Vegemite all over it.

Anyway, hope you have a great birthday!

I just looked over that website, and it's frustrating that they won't give an answer to the question:  How likely am I to see the Northern Lights?  I get that it varies, but there's a statistical answer that they should be able to provide.  They have these tours, and if you pay thousands of dollars to go on one, and go sit in negative degree weather from 9pm to 1am, they should be able to say "65% of our trips have resulted in at least one viewing of the Northern Lights".  Or whatever number.  There has to be a better answer than "We can't say".  And if it was closer to 80%, then I'd think it would be worth trying it.

Happy Birthday, Schofield Kid!  :)

For once I'm getting this thread started before your birthday is nearly over in Australia ... though last I heard, you were on holiday in Spain! Oh well, it's already your birthday there, as well.  :D

Hope you have a wonderful day!  8)

I think it's more of a matter of needing dark skies to see them ... The sky is too light in the far north in the summer months. But auroras can occur year-round.

I've had thoughts of taking a journey to northern Scandinavia in the winter just to try to see them, but then ... you can never be sure if they're going to show up, and then the sky has to be clear, as well.

Thanks, Matt! Did you make your way through that labyrinth in the first picture from the Shrine of St. Thérèse?

That would have been a possibility, except that I was soaked to the bone and tired after having spent the day sight-seeing. I did enjoy it though. It was very beautiful and serene, and I was the only one there because it was pouring at the time, so I liked that I had the whole place to myself, but it was a short visit because of the rain.

I clicked the link you provided and was awestruck at the first image on the site ... a spectacular view of the shrine under the northern lights. Also, I found out that the second of your pictures shows the columbarium there ... certainly a beautiful place for one's ashes to repose, awaiting the Resurrection.

Oh, I know. I wished we could have seen the Northern Lights, but they're a winter event, mainly occuring September - April.

Yeah, the fish does look photoshopped -- I actually agree with you. But, it's real. You can see the wake where he left the water.
