To share with you....
I have been reunited with several members of my family.
It's been a long time in coming.
In the case of two members, illness has been the reason why.
This morning my beautiful eldest Grandson 'phoned me completely unaware of the previously mentioned illness,
that was concerning another branch of the family altogether. He, along with my middle Grandson, are planning on coming to Wales to see me...
Thought I would share....
El,
That surely IS the greatest news,
I am genuinely delighted for you..

Precious days indeed.

Time to break out that very special
bottle of vintage wine we've been holding
onto here in El's Kitchen:)
and 'toast' your very special news.

Praise be! I'm in on this toast. Cheers! Wonderful for you to connect with blood kin. I had a separation time with my oldest .. do you remember my sharing that? A timely re-connect to know her and my future first son-in-law, and then for a time as a newly-wedded couple, and eventually creating a 5-ring circus of grandkids!

Was "shocked" about the timing of acquiring your new color telly and then deigning to view this current season of Downton Abbey. I read your reasoning. I get it.

Good afternoon/evening, Kitchen-eers!

Those can't be to much fun!

I've never been stung though I should have been many times, but I have been bitten by a wasp. I used to corner them in windows and if you do it smoothly, you can pick up a wasp between your fingers between the head and stinger, you can watch the little stinger needle poking in and out attempting to sting you, but one time I did that and the wasp got it's head turned around far enough to bite me and to me that was just as bad lol, I think that was the last time I tried that.

I see El,
It was just a surprise you had praised it so
highly but then we can all change about these things,
of course most people aren't into 'class' especially
in today's age, when anyone can turn up at a function
in a pair of frayed jeans with holes in the knees,LOL
So, it is
quite the opposite, for me, it is exactly that which attracts me to programmes like
DONTOWN 'UPSTAIRS'/'DOWNSTAIRS' etc, I find it very
very interesting getting the full picture up close of how life was back then
and being able to compare and contrast with our own age.
anyway, as always, each to one's own.
LOVE/HATE
started here Sunday night, brilliant, as ever,
but in one of the scenes a cat was machine gunned by
a teenager who got hold of a heavy duty weapon
[the animal wasn't harmed,'twas done by special effects]
but there was an outcry yesterday and I can see why,
it might give uncaring folks ideas that this was fun!
Anyway life goes om,
still very mild here but colder weather on the way.
Period pieces of late Victorian through Edwardian through the World Wars are definitely interesting regarding the societal changes in the Isles and the Continent and how the class system was affected by those changes. The economy (and economics) was different after each war. Perspectives of both genders were changing, from the economics and societal (like Women's Suffrage) factors. Many estates had to be sold off, or foreclosed because of the expenses to maintain and make tax obligations.

The class-ism not completely snuffed out of course, but permanently altered.

While the U.S. has had much flexibility in movement in one's station, there were parallels here in the societal changes during the same time period. And was the genesis for civil rights movements for the main black and Hispanic minorities, not to minimize the plight of Asians.

And then ... for all of us; the 60s-70s.

I DO remember Luke...so having been here you will understand.
It makes a tremendous difference to one's being...it has been a
sorrowful time..but that is history now for both you and I.

Oh dear...must say I hadn't thought how grand the picture would have been on the new set, but I wasn't going to allow myself to witness a decline in the programme which I suspected was happening.
Brilliant to watch the documentaries on the new telly and of course the sport.

Tired now, so I will just wish everyone a very Good Night.

DENNY....glad for you that your face has gone down...good healing
powers.

KRYPTEIA....don't raise your hopes, LOL.

{{{ Cuz El }}} as you say, a tremendous difference.

If Tony reads, I'm viewing Cornwall flavor and countryside because Doc Martin is now a "must see" on weekend TV.

NIght!

I've been saving a link for here after watching this sister act on national TV this weekend.
The Guardian writer likes'em, it seems. Yeah, there are concrete canyons in Indiana though not to the extent of the larger cities in the U.S. There are some natural 'mini-canyons' in the Indiana wild, I can confirm.

The Connie Booth 'talk' reminded me that I read in Wikipedia awhile back that she was from rural Indiana [probably around Indianapolis].

Doc Martin is filmed in the village of Port Isaac on the north Cornish coast - also home to Fisherman's Friends - a group that has made headlines with their singing. One of their number, Trevor Grills, was killed last year in a tragic accident. Google them in youtube, some of their stuff is on there.

Another posting on Fisherman's Friends - this time because it was filmed at the Minack Theatre. It's an open air theatre on the Cliffside in south west Cornwall, all the work on one woman (now dead). An incredible venue, although the seats are concrete!!.

Morning folks,

El,

I agree with you there are some excellent documentaries
to be seen nightly, I have watched so many,
between channels> National Geographic - Eden,
Discovery - History etc etc, there's a huge selection,
and with your grand new TV,
you've got it made.. Kudos.

***

Good to see you out & about Tony,
for you and Deer Whisperer.

I went to see the movie PRISONERS,
it's an excellent thriller,
just saying in case you haven't yet seen it.

I often think about Franko....and Quincy..also the dear
folk who did the exhibitions....cannot blieve I cannot recall their
topix names...although their real names are foremost in my mind....
Miss them all.
LOL LOL - I knew u'd get a kick outta my silly sense of humor.
actually that's something my husband jokes about, in his job he will often get invited to some sport events where its only the best seat, food and beer - he loves it. but when hes invited for one that doesnt include "only the best", he jokes (to me) that he "wont go and be with the common people" lol
so basically - Im hanging around him too much, hes a bad influence on me. lol

jumping in here on the Downton Abby thing, we just got finished watching the first season. so far so good..
gotta say..
we've watched several series (like spartacus) and it seems like these TV people tend to get carried away with a show and eventually u think "ok had enough of this one"
but at least its SOMETHING to watch- for awhile anyway.
ya know what I mean, TV stinks anymore! lol
one show we watched was "John Adams" - not sure if that would interest u - El, Grace - but it was very informative about our country's beginning and I actually learned something. lol

like I said, there are several series that we've watched, but unfortunately I cant remember the names, or even if u guys would be able to get them where u live.
jeez im getting more and more forgetful - that stinks too! lol
Bora Da!

reminds me - when my daughter was about 6 months old, I sat her down on a blanket in the yard and a bee came flying by her, she reached out and actually grabbed it.
think that was the Last time she ever did that. the look on her face - well too bad I didn't have a camera. lol
poor kid..
but every time I tell that story to her, I cant help but laugh.. im a horrible mom. lol lol

I also used to get something resembling a bat or some piece of wood and would get them pissed off where they would drop off the nest, then it was like batting practice lol.
