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.

I read ur wedding post twice and smiled ear to ear - thanks So much for sharing!
but... the big question is - did ya get drunk? lol lol
our celebration began afterwards, one down and another kid to go. lol - out came the measuring tape and Dad's new "man cave" was born. but peace and quiet didn't last very long, for along came 3 new rug rats to add to the clan and the circle of life continues.
we babysat the kids just this weekend, and u wanna talk about "the Loud family" my ears are still hurting. lol
after they left, the wine came out, we held the glasses up with goofy smiles and hubby took a picture and texted it to my D, she responded with a laugh and said what nerds we were and said see ya next weekend. lol
Cheers!
lifes good..

The flower girls are going to be 10 soon. Gift shopping looms, and a visit associated with the event. That's always like attending a five-ring circus, I can tell you.:)

That portion of "my tribe" left in a bit after the scripted dances (including the "dollar-dances" time with the bride and groom). Next day was a school day, you see. I hung around some nursing a 2nd beer. Then I went to my room to change to casual clothes. Instead of going right back, I went outside. My ex-wife was sitting on a bench, and we had a chat. She was kind of anticipating the end of the reception and gathering various stuff after its end. Since I didn't participate in any set-up of the wedding area or the reception room, I asked what I could do. I found out the only the groom's dad and step-mother had gone to the wedding area to gather the 100 or so chairs and assorted decorations in their trailer they had. I headed off to help them.

It was still humid enough as it was later in the afternoon to break a sweat if working as was evident by the other guy's dress shirt! Anyway, we got-r-done before light of day waned to darkness. When I got back to the inn, reception was over (7:00PM). Bride, groom, and some of the wedding party, and Mom were in the lobby with some of the reception decorations to store in a room overnight. Bride is holding 2 pitchers of beer, and thrusts one at me. I take it.

What "we" were waiting on was the maid-of-honor (my youngest) and some others "preparing" the room of the newly-wedded couple. While we are hanging around I'm sipping from the pitcher. At brides insistence, I am to go up and see the room. We eventually go. I'm basically just socializing with these young folk including the youngest's new boyfriend and commenting on the booze in the room and all the flower petals spread all over. I declined to comment on the packs of condoms being noted by others.

After finishing the pitcher and grabbing a beer from the cooler in the room "for the road" I retired to the front of the inn outside for some night air. Beautiful evening! When that beer was finished, I retired to my room. Nope, still not drunk. But thirst quenched and relaxed!

:) It's all true!

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.
UPDATE

Regarding the second part of the above post
I wrote here a few days back,
sad to report, the missing lady who
suffered from> Alzheimer's - was
found dead today in a lonely field,
way off the beaten track,

despite cops and neighbourly search parties
out .. each day combing the areas for her.

and..

the loyal family,
'king charles' doggy
she brought for a walk was found
sitting beside her watching over her -

I'm amazed he stayed with her and never wandered off
to find food etc,
when she let go the lead..

they were both missing since Tuesday last..

I felt deeply moved by this.

I am terribly sorry to hear of the outcome Grace, and
all the more moving to know the lady's little dog watched
over her, stayed by her side. Makes one wonder why she
was allowed to go alone, that indicates she was not too
far advanced in Alhzeimers...but regardless of that, sad to hear.

Extremely interesting link, many thanks for that, much detail
of which I was unaware.

Cuz Luke....I would be grateful if you would explain the association which you mention.

We have yet to watch the 'bonus disc' will be doing so over the weekend.

Have to admit, didn't go after all. It was an absolutely beautiful day here, sunny, hot, clear skies....no way on
God's Earth would I waste a day such as that copped up in
a vehicle. I see the sun, I gotta get out there, so spent
the entire day in the garden.
Please tell me that they didn't cheat! It was one of the most
exciting races ever....oh, and led by a Brit don't ya know!

how often do you mail a letter ....
I know exactly what you mean. A similar case here..the HEADLINES
in the Nationals a week or so ago, to the effect that in England, supermarkets are to charge 5pence for each plastic bag....that made
the headlines? Our energy bills are up 41% over recent years, it is crippling, yet people are up in arms over having to fork out 5p
for a bag. Reusable. This scheme has been up and running in Wales for years, all proceeds go to charity, one supermarket allows you to choose your charity of choice.
Before customers would pay the paltry fee, they are suddenly remembering to take in their own bags!

Thanks El..
Ah..so SO sad, and who would I be
to challenge the family at such a dreadful
time for them, but it was very chancy
allowing the dear lady outside AT ALL,
without a minder,
I know she had her little dog,
the grand daughter said, it was HE who
brought HER for the walk and back again
every day..

The tragic thing about ALZHEIMERS is - as we know -
is the confusion of mind - in this case
she didn't even have enough mental capacity
to go into a shop or petrol station ANYWHERE and just say
'Im lost'

Added to the sadness apparently when the body
was removed her little dog died minutes after,
I suppose he was weak and traumatized by the whole event-
but remained with her faithfully to the end.

Idiotic.

Now there are plans in motion to provide free school breakfasts to ALL children under 7 yrs. Regardless of how much income their
parents/guardians earn. Fine, but the reason for it is, so many
children are going to school hungry because their parents/guardians cannot afford to give them a breakfast.
WHAT?
How much would a bowl of cereal cost for heaven's sakes, a piece of buttered toast, and a warm drink.
And what happens when the child turns 7?

Would appreciate anybody's views on this please.

what you say is DEAD ON..

How often I thought that, and sometimes even if the person
saves 3/4 cents they'll buy some other item
they didn't intend to at all in the first place -
spending even more than intended.

Along the same lines, did you ever witness a person fidgeting
madly at a pedestrian crossing, not even waiting for lights to change,
but darting across as cars whiz by..
and at the other side they just stop aimlessly looking
into some store window:)LOL
