Time I think to start looking forward to Christmas and all it holds, this year I am dispensing with the indoor tree, although
will be having a fibre optic tree on the dresser....instead of
an indoor one, putting existing outdoor lights on a small tree
outside. Few decs up indoors.....
Already bought in the Baileys.......:)
OH! All's right with all that! And I like the part about the Baileys :) Will cheer ya up!

{{{ Cuz El }}}

This afternoon I watched a delightful program called "The Story of Costume Drama"; an overview about the period pieces produced by BBC and the independent studios across the pond. There are short clips and interviews with actors, actresses, directors, and writers. An informative narrative ties it all together. I wonder if that has been telecast in the U.K. and Ireland?

Well, I'll be! As I was in and out much today, I checked this thread about 4PM EST, and I saw a post from El, and another from Grace. Like many times, I didn't have time for the length of replies I wanted to leave, so I left the tab open. So I'm back now and settle in to post and those posts are gone!
Posts 394, 400 and 401 are gone. I know two of those were the ones I was going to reply to.
And El pointed out Grace's missing post from back a bit. What the hale?
Slack it looks like you're not the only one having issues with Topix. Sorry that you are.

Meanwhile, I saw that both of you ladies had found those videos impressive in their own ways, as I did. Yes the creeping ice would've had me almost hysterical. I live on a river and sometimes LARGE thick sheets of ice come down, having broken free from bays upriver. They take down trees, they rip docks from moorings and banks. I've wondered what would happen if we had high water and one of those came down, and could crash into the house...<shudder> Ya water and ice are powerful stuff.
I think water is the most powerful element, or thing in the universe. There's not a molecule it can't separate, given time.
And El, I remember you spoke of the chicken that Morgan snatched, still perfect!
Hope you're both snug and warm while Winter howls outside. It's snowing here pretty good now, and we're going out for Mexican food, lol.
Hope this post is here in the AM!

Your post is here indeed,
Obviously a few glitches on Topix these days..

Yes the dangers of these elements can be nothing
less than astounding, things that help
us so much can turn..

I'm trying to battle this DERN dose,
It just comes at an awkward time,
I 'me not up to doing anything and there's
much to do at the time of year..
but it will pass as it did oft times before!

Now that would be a programme to interest me and I will def look
out for that, especially as it encompasses all aspects.

It is our tradition to have a glass of Baileys with a mince pie
every evening commencing 12 days before Christmas.(We know how
to live it up here don't ya know) lol
Look out for slurred posts, hahaha

Yes indeedy Paise, so am replying while the going is good. How
strange those posts disappeared...offbeat just gets weirder.
Speaking of water/ice and the power of such, as a matter of interest we live in a valley created by ice, by a moving glacier which worked it way down from the top of the mountains down towards the sea forcing it's way through everything, leaving stretches of water behind it which have created the present lakes.
As you say, a powerful force.
Hope you enjoyed your Mexican supper, just the thing this freezing weather...:)

Give it time Grace and look after yourself now, don't
be worrying and let those anti-biotics get to work,
three weeks off Christmas so you should be well clear of
it well before then.
Hoping to see Philomena next week, bit of a schlepp from where
we are (60 mile round trip) or thereabouts, but I adore
Dame Judi Dench and have heard such good reviews on this movie
it's a must see.
Hope you feel better soon.

On this very important day..

The poem
INVICTUS
(By Wm Ernest Henley)

Nelson Mandella kept this poem with him
during his time in prison.

A Tribute...

- INVICTUS -

'In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul..'

Although it had been expected to happen for sometime it still came as a bit of shock when
the death of Nelson Mandela was announced,
and the irony being, the film of his life, namely MANDELA had premiered in London that very day.
The world is united in it's admiration for this
great man, who created a peaceful revolution.

It's alright for some, LOL! Just kidding Grace,

taking care now.
Cold here but still no snow, just a fine rain.

Don't tell me they're noisy, I have ordered one but it hasn't
arrived yet. It's only a diddy one, it shouldn't make too much
noise...fingers crossed. This new central heating is so noisy
it's untrue..it's supposedly a green energy pump but it's like
a generator. I got a request from the manufacturers of someone who installed it asking for my feedback, my reply to them was 'what price silence' lol..they guessed I didn't like it.
Your eldest GD 7 already? How time does fly you are so right, grfown up before you know it. What is more fun than teasing them
though, I used to say to my eldest GD when giving her her meal,
'this will put hairs on your chest'...she was about 10 before she finally said 'but I don't want......hahahaha
Happy Birthday to your big girl from we in the Kitchen.....:)
Have a nice weekend PFfff....
Bora Da a qui!

Take it easy Grace, people are gonna start talking.

Luke, it is the same thing that happened to HH when I first meet tally and was invited to his secret thread. He has been at war with someone his whole life. All it takes now is for someone to disagree with him on any subject. Sad
