Good afternoon, Cuzzin :) Oh my yes, so many conversations are had in that length of time on a vast array of topics. Who can?
A Golden Globe for her?! Very much earned. Yep, Downton Abbey is still ... superb.
And thank YOU so much for writing so; however, it is an honor to me to participate here. Thank you for that.
An impossibility to remember everything said, I agree. Don't feel too
badly about it now!...:)
Yes, Dame Maggie is a National Treasure, I was wondering if you saw the movie The Exotic Marigold Hotel? She was wonderful in that, as were the whole cast, great movie.

I've never had fried sweet potato that I recall. Sweet potato pie is not something I would choose over other pies; nope. I would pass by sweet potato pie.
DW, DC, a lot of restaurants pass off their sweet potato fries as such and in reality, two different items! Yams are sweeter and are a very orange color; whereas the sweet potato is very pale or almost a salmon color.
A very good sweet potato pie I will take over pumpkin any day!

Not a problem with me. Parenting is parenting; the rewards and pitfalls are part-and-parcel no matter the orientation of the relationship which hopefully is nurturing, not dysfunctional.
I think the days of 'normality' are over...at one time a child would stand out like a sore thumb with anything but two parents of the opposite sex, but then came one parent families (of which I was one
eventually) and as my sister who was a teacher put it, a family where the only consistency in the household was the same bed. She taught in a deprived area, whether that has any bearing.
So yes, parenting is parenting as you say, and should be judged if at all, on the well being of the child and not the gender persuasion.

Asian food! Woo-hoo!!
I lived in Japan for 3 years. Egg drop is good! Think of a scrambled egg in broth. Miso and won ton are my favorites! When it comes to raw fish, salmon wins hands down!

Yep; and I prefer the sweeter, more colorful yams but a sweet potato will suffice in the absence of the former.

Gd Afternoon All,
Doing a bit of catching up this am...
El,
So glad you checked out that documentary,
it is a one off.
Going back to the VICK ON THE FEET method(:
I'm almost certain that 'twas M04 in the olden
days who wrote
about it, either HERE on this thread..
or 'Dirty Nelly's thread' before
it's demise;
apparently the addition of
putting socks on over the application
of vick IS part of it;
helps with absorption or some such..
In any case veryone swears by this
old remedy, just shows,
a lot of 'old wives tales'
Cold here threat of snow,
but in all, NOT BAD.
Pleasant thoughts everyone.
have a worth of their own.
It rings a bell that MO4 posted it Grace, could be I sent
it to her in e-mail, who knows, my memory doesn't stretch so
far back!
I would have thought that the socks would absorb the Vick,
obviously not.

Remember another method of clearing congestion...putting a teaspoon
of Vick's Vapour Rub into a bowl of boiling water, and leaning over same
with a towel over the head to inhale the vapours?

NOT to be done if Asthmatic or prone to nose bleeds.

Weather pretty much the same here as in Ireland, we had a downpour
of Hailstones earlier and it's getting colder now. P knowcked up a bird
table this morning as our other one had taken a tumble, within seconds of
putting food on it the birds were down...cats indoors.
Nice to see, and noticed that some of the little Blue Tits are taking the
food back to the nests.

No I haven't yet. The movie promos on the coLOr tV and reviews are positive ... as in, "should see".

Since I do most of the shopping and over the age of 50, I find myself helping young families make smart purchases. Our local grocer has an area called managers special. You can find a roast with plenty of uses for less than 10 dollars, US. You cut it up for steaks, stew or kabobs! That is three meals, in three days. And in your veggies and stuff, feast on!
That's very economical and wouldn't be at all monotonous being able
to vary the meals...credit to the local grocer. Good to know that not
all shops are purley 'on the make'.

What in the world is normal anymore El. We are old enough to see so many changes. The new Normal is always changing. What will be the next thing that shocks us today but will be excepted in a few years.

Great with a bit of brown sugar on the baked or mash.

adding a little brown sugar...that's what I'll do!..:)

Just wondered. I don't see many movies on the colour tv myself
not having the movie channel, but saw that at the picture house.
Well worth seeing if you get the opportunity.

My wife and I watched the Queen again yesterday. A very good movie indeed. My friends in Brighton thick that Dianas death was an assassination. Is that a common belief there? I remember the out pouring of grief when it happened. How would she have been viewed if she had married the Arab ?

FC,
Glad you liked LINCOLN ..
it seems it's the general consus of opinion that
it is brilliant in every way,
you.. and others might find this interesting,
Daniel Day Lewis who lives here ..of
his own accord came up with such a generous idea.

I know! I said it tongue in cheek, but you know what I mean, for
instance when I was at school there was one girl in class had free
dinners due to her parents not being able to provide dinner money.
It wasn't kept discreet. So she stood out, an all girls school and
a lot of snobbery there.
Now moving on..when my own son went to High School, the one who stood out was the one paying for his dinner.
Sorry to ramble on but those are instances stick in my mind.
As does the 'gay' friend I had in the 60's who had to hide the fact.
A nicer man you could not wish to meet.

El,
speaking of potatoes I sent a link
here, I think Sat/Sunday re an Irish
potato dish, called COLCANNON..

if you or anyone here want to track it back,
it's a tasty and easy dish.
It's so easy to miss a post, there are
so many(:

I,too remember the MARIGOLD HOTEL movie,
seemingly they have another similar type movie
out now called QUARTET, starring Tom Courtney,
Billy Connolly and the great Maggie Smith,
and Pauline Collins.. apparently
about retired musicians.

A radio host urged folks to go see it,
saying it was and easy delightful movie.

Good afternoon Lady El ... If you see Lincoln at the cinema you will NOT be disappointed ... it was a very good movie ... I think it may be nominated for some awards ... I will probably rent it when it comes around on Netflix ... if you're not destined to see Jack Reacher on the big screen, then yes, you must see it on DVD ... it'll be worth your while ... and plus you'll be able to re-run at your leisure ... there are a lot of good movies coming out ... I've had The Dark Knight Rises on my desk since last Thursday but I had a very good book I wanted to finish and then the weekend came around with the football playoffs ... I may get around to watching it this afternoon, who knows ... In any event ... hope you, P and the furry one's are all well and hope today finds everyone in good spirits ... Enjoy the rest of your day! Peace and Love, FC <3 ...
Good Afternoon Flower...seems whenever I think of you you appear, glad of it, I miss you when I don't see you.
I know I have said this before, and it hasn't materialised, but we are going to the cinema tomorrow...don't know what they are showing as yet, so it could be Lincoln, could be Argo, dunno yet, and I quite fancy The Quartet...
Had to laugh when you said you had the Dark Knight Rises on your desk...what are saying, hahaha
I still haven't done any reading of note...I took a book to bed with me the other night on Tagine Cooking, how exciting is that?!
Enjoy your day Flower however you spend it, watching your movie or whatever else you choose to do. Love to you and to Jax and Pooh Bear xxx
