Thanks Grace..
while I'm here..you mentioned Dating Agencies.
A couple of mornings later there was talk of it on Sky News,
as to the protection, or lack of, it afforded to women, and
how it could be made more secure and safe by checking applicants
out thoroughly.
I would have thought that compulsory myself..would you not?
Thanks for this reply and your
interest in the subject,
of course, you are perfectly correct,
it seems, in this particular case I wrote
about here, the deceased was in touch with
or *MAY HAVE BEEN*[not to wrong her when she
cannot speak for herself]

some dodgey unregistered dating agency,
the cops meantime, are pulling out ALL
THE STOPS..
trying to get the jigsaw pieces together.

Also,
2 days ago, a lady suffering from senile dementia
took her dog to the local shop,
5 mins away..
the way she did every day,
and always knew the route -
but this time she disappeared
and notwithstanding many groups out looking
for her, hasn't been found yet!

She even came across the set where
'MRS BROWNE'S BOYS' were filming the next series, & spoke to some of
the cast,
[who have been enormously helpful when they
heard the news] but she doesn't know who she is!..
or who anyone else is..

I cant help thinking it is remiss of the family
to let her out AT ALL with that complaint.

The sadness in family tales.

I see this , the technology of today and tomorrow is making certain things disappear...like the telegraph did to the pony and the train did to the stage coaches

but still the postal system is a necessity

I notice that every day.. the I
was going to say.. subtle changes,
but indeed not subtle at all..

The mobile phone [or cell phone]
has given chase to alarm clocks AND cameras to a
greater extent, altho' the latter [photography] is still
safe, there are very powerful state-of-the-art
cameras to be had today, that no cell-phone-camera
could measure up to..
nevertheless the 'phone camera is very handy at
capturing on the spot details..which otherwise might
have been missed.. and, at times important details
at accident scenes etc.

sup Bub.

I think what you're saying (from "my" post offices I use) is that the Forever stamp has no price marking. Those you buy before a price increase are as good (without extra stamps) as the ones sold after a price increase. That's the intent and effect. No more needing to buy those small-change stamps anymore. Hmmm, I wonder if they've stopped printing those?

:)

Good afternoon/evening Kitchen-eers.

Going to try to find on iplayer or whatever. Maybe they will repeat the series.
How's the metal detecting going? Find anything good?
Off to England tomorrow, just for the day, looking forward to
it immensly.
Excellent ... continuing your traipsing around. Always glad to read your adventures out or at home {{{ Cuz El }}}

I hope that we are not reading soon that the Oracle sailing team that won the America's Cup cheated to do it, as they were found to do during quals. There were allowed to compete in finals with a penalty handicap.

Maybe an asterisk is merited.

What a group of fellows indeed, it was so humbling to watch...
who would have dreamt what they went through. I believe we owe
the makerso this series a great deal in bringing it to our attention so realistially...must have been a huge strain on the cast. T/Y for sharing about your Dad. We owe our Allies such a lot.
Such a contrast in viewing Cuz!...:) You will get around to watching Boardwalk in time. Now this evening I am torn between
Downton Abbey which starts afresh, and Myrtle Manor which started last week, both on at 9p.m. I was knocked out by the cast in Myrtle Manor...all very endearing.
Series development for Band of Brothers was from Tom Hanks and Erik Jendersen, with a "looks good" role from Steven Spielberg. Hanks and Spielberg were the drivers of the movie Saving Private Ryan.

As you're aware, "band of brothers" is associated with St. Crispian's Day and the Battle of Agincourt.
