So, here it is, I'm trying to plan a little Disney vacation for a year from now. Possible Land, possible World, possibly neither. There are a number of factors still in play, a number of balls in the air. But, you see, my wife has vacation at the same time as my daughter's third birthday. It seems like a great way to celebrate her birthday and we can even go during the week and have fewer lines and crowds. Of course, even if we don't go, I'll be able to take a Quantum of Solace from the fact that we'll all be together.
Sunday, June 15:
8:00 - 9:00PM
Nature - “Silence of the Bees.” By "silence" the show means that honeybees are disappearing from North America. No one is quite sure why, but gosh darn it, they're going to try and find out. Seriously folks, this could be a real problem, due to the whole pollination thing that honeybees do.
9:00PM – 10:30PM
Independent Lens – "Deep Water". Deep water can mean deep trouble, especially if you're an amateur yachtsman. Deep water did mean deep trouble for Donald Crowhurst who tried to sail his yacht around the world in the first solo, non-stop race that required circumnavigating the globe.
10:30 – 11:00PM
PBS Previews – "Carrier". PBS isn't going to show you Carrier, they're just going to show you a preview of it (it airs at the end of April and beginning of May). They're going to tantalize you. They're going to intrigue you. They're going to tell you about some of the people on the USS Nimitz.

8:00 - 9:00PM
Antiques Roadshow – "Los Angeles (Hour Three)". Did you know that there was a time I lived in Los Angeles? It's strange, but true, I lived there. It's quite the movie town, everyone seems to be an actor or a writer or a producer. It's all quite fascinating. Plus, just about everyone has some sort of movie memorabilia. I wonder if that's what we're going to see on the Roadshow, a Marilyn Monroe-signed bottle of Chanel, that sort of thing.
