Good Morning Quincy...we had snow last night so are playing safe
today. I WILL get to see these movies eventually. It's such
a journey to the multi-complex cinema.
Glad you enjoyed Lincoln..
Quentin Tarantino was a guest on my fave chat show, Graham Norton,
a clip of Django was shown, looks interesting. I like QT..he
seems a nice chap. Shy almost, in real life.
I am a fan of his. His movies are so violent. They glory in it. It is funny though his newest movie is about a black bounty hunter who kills white men. Oh the outrage we would hear if it was reversed :)

over from Australia (turned out we were not related after all, fortunately she didn't make a special journey) she suggested we speak via Skype, I never got around to it although I have it installed.
Keep us posted. I think having the technology to enjoy the company of others would be awesome!

The outrage has happened! Spike Lee was first. The movie has been compared to Sergio Leone westerns.
Journalists have called it a black exploitation film that only a white director could get away with. Race has always been an issue in Hollywood.
Hope the Mrs is better.

El have you ever been to Hyde Park on a Sunday and seen speakers corner? I love seeing all the people standing on a ladder and talking about their favorite topic. I was told they stand on the ladder so they don't commit treason on British soil :)

'Morning Pretty Feet....
I know what you are saying, I would feel bad making an issue of it if that were the case though. Life is different here in Wales to what it
was in England, here, whereas in England we are much more reserved, and non more so than myself, the Welsh are not like that, they speak to total strangers and I have learnt to do the same. And if one endeavours to speak their language, then you are a friend for life. Not that I am fluent but I try in view of the history and in view of the attitude towards the Welsh from many of my visiting countrymen. Much as I dislike to admit it.
So really, she was advising me out of the goodness of her heart, and no way would I throw her advice in her face. The laugh was, I went in the store with a list, and came out with a completely different list altogether..:)
I opened a charity shop here shortly after moving into this village,
and local people would come in simply for a chat...one lady, who is now in a home, used to bring me a cup of tea from the cafe down the street.
There was one fellow, had learning difficulties, on his way to the day centre, each morning would wait on the doorstep of the shop to wish me a Bora Da (G'Morning) and give me a kiss. Late afternoon, he and some of the others at the centre, called in specifically to tell me about their day.
I miss running that shop..it was like being thrown into the Lion's Den on that first day in a strange place, but I made so many friends there
it was the best thing I did to ease into the area.
El!- u have to do like i do, if someone suggests a product - i say thanks, put in my cart and walk over to the next aisle and put it on another shelf. lol
:)

sometimes being polite can be soooo much work. lol

That is so funny Grace...I can see you waking up most indignant.
Mrs. Browne is a scream, the whole family are great, I look forward
to my Monday night's viewing, lol.
I was glad I wasn't on Skype earlier myself, as I lost a post and
the air was blue. Mrs. Browne has led us astray, haha
Good example of people being helpful to the point of being a nuisance
with it, and not so easy to get out of so good for you. They mean well
but there is a limit!
Mrs B..
was very funny last night! LOL

Yeah, a few good movies doing the rounds
right now -
NO excuse for me - the multiplex 'state-of-the-art
cinemas' are about 10mins from where I live.

My son advised me on the phone
NOT to
miss 'THE HOBBIT, An Unexpected journey'
he says it's superb...
he was engrossed in it.

cold here, threatening snow.

Good afternoon/eveningtide to ye Kitchen-eers.

I gots a "controversial topix" to bear. See, on the one hand, we have a cancer survivor, fierce competitor, winner, involved in foundation for garnering millions of dollars for cancer research and survivor support; a heroic personality.

On the other, we have a cheat, fraud, and bully (of the "little guy" that would obstruct his purposes).

Does the end justify the means?

This article is by the author of the flowing, brilliant piece about the Irish-woman boxer during the Summer Olympics; Yahoo! sports columnist.

He has condensed reportage by other sources into some pointed observations:

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/questions-oprah-...

And, I see parallel [but by no means attempting to make the activities "the same" gravity; one is obviously more heinous] between Armstrong and Saville -- powerful people with a power network, though not necessarily in the literal broadcast sense, of loyals to achieve/cover his purpose.

Gd evening back DW,

*Just* having read your post here,
without giving it a lot of thought..
[which I'll do later]

Hard to compare Armstrong and Savile..
for obvious reasons..[you also eluded to]
but for the sake of argument here,

to my mind..

BOTH were deceitful/untrustworthy on a large scale..

and
to me that shades and sullies all other 'successes' they both achieved.

Well Cuz Luke, I personally would not as much as speak of Lance Armstrong in the same breath as the late Jimmy Savile.

Lance Armstrong has never hurt anyone, he has paid for his folly by having his seven Tour de France titles stripped from him, whereas Savile was a sexual predator
of immense proportions, for 50 years no less. The scum of the Earth.

I used to live around the corner. Used to swim in the Serpentine.
But never did see Speaker's corner, and certainly never heard about
the reason for the ladder Denny, most interesting.
