<quoted text>Thanks for the heads up Quinn. My wifes sister and husband are planing to go with us to England this year. I may have told you this story but it was so strange. We sometimes stay in an apartment in Brighton. One night I notice an apartment across from us that was about 100 yards away. All the curtains were onpen and the lights were on and it looked like about 20 people were having a party. Then I noticed that they were all standing still. I got curious and looked through my binoculars and they were all dummies. I thought how strange. Later I looked across and the scene had changed They were now all in different positions:) I couldn't figure out if this was a joke they played often or what :)
Must've been something in the air ;-)

Another time in the same Apartment I got up early to go on a hike. As I got to the first floor going by some meeting rooms a good looking blonde who was totally naked asked me to help her find her room. I told her my wife doesn't like me helping naked women but this time I would make an exception. I gave her my jacket and told here I would be right back with something to cover her up in. I got a table cloth and a woman who worked in the hotel to help me. Everytime I go there I check to see if there are any other naked women who need my help :)

I can't apologise enough Denny....I thought you was having
a larf. Don't you be worrying about the tiles, it's YOU
they are coming to see, not the tiles, people understand when
you have dogs, floors get messy this weather. Hope by now you
are on the mend and Bommer's and Quincy's suggestion of chicken
soup sounds a great idea.
El let me tell you a funny story about Reagan and the Queen. Now this is to funny to be true but you never know. It seems both Reagan and Elizabeth were horse people and good riders. It seems they were riding together and as they went up a narrow part of the trail Elizabeth led the way up a hill. While the president was behind her horse let out a very loud fart. At the top of the hill the Queen said mr Reagan I am so sorry. Regan replied that's OK I thought it was the horse :)

First Sunday of 2013 -- and a happy and good one I hope it is for the Kitchen-eers.

Back in aught-7, saw "49 Up" on PBS and was quite informed and fascinated by the scope of this film project then. Today on a Sunday human interest anthology TV program Michael Apted was interviewed, a brief overview of the series was included, and clips from this "56 Up" installment which is soon to be seen in the U.S.(folks across the pond has had a chance to view in "Spring-ish" of 2012). The series is one of Roger Ebert's all-time best 10 films.

Apted got started on this back in the early 60s as an assistant with Granada TV, Manchester. Extensive work in TV east of the Atlantic Ocean, and has done other notable documentaries and many theatrical and successful movies.

Cheers to all the kitchen patrons far and wide. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the sights and sounds and smells all around you.
Those of you with inclement weather, be well and be safe. Though devastating for a moment, our thing can be replaced.....loved ones and our memories cannot.
.......and a thank you to all for touching my life...
Well, that's an endearing thought! Thanks to you too for the same :-)

LOL! I don't buy it though Denny, as no horsewoman/man would
apologise for their mount's natural function. Nice try!...:)

The first Sunday as you say Luke, almost over this side of the pond.
Thanks fopr mentioning this series, I wonder if it is to be repeated,
worth looking for. Some good documentaries came out of Granada TV.

I'll see your Polish and raise you an Italian. My mom's first husband was 100% Italian --- now THAT was a volatile combination!

Watched the movie CEMETERY JUNCTION.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, and the music was fantastic.

Glad you mentioned it, really well worth seeing.

Imagine that the kitchen has spewed hate and venom on a different thread. How sad some people are!
I have found great personalities here. I may agree or disagree with some folks, yet the coffee is hot and the company warm.
Thank you all!
Kent State University just lost their bowl game, sad.

I suppose in the same way that deer and other

when they are in their own territory minding their

Not at all wishing to set fire under a potential
huge argument on El's Kitchen;

just making a similar type point,

As long as it doesn't overlap into here, not a problem. I suspect the haters won't bother as they'd be ignored.

Morning all: another day in paradise!

I was going to say it was a scream, which it was, but there was a
lot more too it than that. Wouldn't have missed that for the
world. That fellow's face (and his wife's) when presented with
the fruitbowl, 10 years door to door and 30 years in the Basement!
As you say Grace, so true.
I loved where the railway worker got up to sing! Brilliant.
Another mild day and dry day here...and noticed the snowdrops
are coming through.
Glad you are feeling better Grace, look after yourself, don't
get complacent.

What's happening Tally...surely no more large scale 'incidents'
although to lose one life is bad enough. I would say sit yourself
down and have a cup of tea, we endeavour to understand each other's
woes here, we are all amongst friends, indeed our own longstanding
family.

OMG Grace, as you mention it, there was a lengthy article
in Saturday's newspaper about rearing White Lion's so that
somebody prepared to pay highly could kill the trusting animal
when he reached full size. This in South Africa.
It's a sad world.
