G'Morning Sir Tally....they don't make them like that any more,
more is the pity....some excellent movies made these days true, but
those old black and white's had a kind of magic. I watched 'Shane' for the umpteenth time the other night, brilliant.
Enjoy your afternoon...
I was thinking about he realistic aspect of some movies, then and now .... when I responded to Tally;s post.

But it the name of movie accuracy ... not everyone dies instantly when shot as they often did in the old cowboy and war movies .. unless the bullet hits the head or the heart, a person does not drop dead on the spot ... they lay there and bleed and are often conscious ... so a lot of the old movies were not accurate in that respect ...

I'm going to have to show my ignorance here Boomer,
potatoes with sour cream? How so?
One of the sides I serve is boiled parsnips mashed with
double cream (Elmlea) so I am guessing potatoes mashed
with sour cream? More tart than with cream or butter?
Sounds good to me....
And as Quincy says, bits of bacon added...even better.
most common is baked potatoes ... leave them in the oven, with skin still on .. for an hour or so ... then cut the potatoe sin half, alply some butter and slather on sour cream on top .. also with bacon nits or green onions ...

Many people here eat the potatoe skin . do they in the UK?

well, there you are ... herring from the German side, cabbage from the Irish side, I'm thinking.
Corned beef and cabbage I mentioned the other day probably is Irish, or Scots-Irish, tradition??
cabbage is actualy big in Germany too ... for example Saurkraut ...

Thanks for clarification ... and I understand your point about teens as well.

Not one for suspending your disbelief are you Boomer? I like some B/Ws and others not so much; there were B/W tv programs I liked too. I loved the Wonderful World of Disney movies on Sunday nights.

Recently saw Rebel without a cause & The Wild One. Liked the Janes Dean movie better; don't much care for Brando.

The Arctic ice cap is 50% of what is was about 50 years ago. Something is happening, for sure!

That was not what I was saying. How you can use Hitler as a reference to a group that did some positive things for Black folks in America I don't get.

it was both Japanese cities . not sure why Hiroshima is the only one mentioned so often. Yep Chernobyl has a zone around it that no one is supposed to enter. I think for another 30 to 50 years?

here is an interesting fact .. the NORTH POLAR CAP melting won't change the water levels at all ... only the ice that is on LAND will affect those levels.
