<quoted text>Good morning El. Now that my wife is going to retire we are going to take a trip to England. We have had to fly into Heathrow which we hate but we have found a way to fly into Gatwick which is close to our friends home. We have to have a layover in Florida but it is well worth it. Is is shown as a American Airline but it is done by BA.
'Morning Denny.....I am so glad you will be able to come over again, and flying into
Gatwick will cut down on the travelling time at this end at least.
I expect you will wait until the weather has settled down, it's a disaster down South
just now, but your friends will have kept you in the picture.....
I won't ask what your weather is today, lol! Anyway, it's beautiful here today, signs
of Spring at last.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I have forgotten about this episode!
I used to get off work in the '70's, drink some beer, smoke a joint with my friends, and watch Monty Python! We would lay on the floor crying our eyes out laughing. We didn't need a joint!
Most of American comedy is copied from Croft and his partner (I can't remember). I hope they put "Are you being served?" on again in the States. I only have "Keeping Up Appearances" now. Dave Allen was fantastic!!!

Good Sunday afternoon/evening Kitchen-eers.

I'm thinking of Pretty Feetand'em in U.S. eastern seaboard location that's gotten hammered in these winter storms. Haven't seen her posting around for several days.

And for the English folk who stopped posting before this winter's U.K. Stormageddon.

I have no clue what's available on BBC America via cable/dish, but the individual PBS stations have independent choices whether to use "Are You Being Served?", "Keeping Up Appearances", and other Brit-coms.

Thanks for checking Luke...I thought I was dreaming for a while
as I checked and couldn't find, followed by checking some more
and not finding any missing.
While I am here...the woman you mentioned whose roof had blown off,
that was on the Welsh news, it is close to where I shop occasionely.
Closer to home, a poor fellow of 77 had died in hospital after a tree fell on
him in his garden as he and his wife were bring in the chickens. Something
incredibly sad about the circumstances somehow. All such incidents
of course, are extremely sad.
Anyways, hope you are able to stay home while the roads are so bad.
I'm not movin' until it all dies down.
Y/W ..... yes, sadly loss of life is increasing. Saw that in the middle of London somewhere, a 49 year-old woman sitting in her car was killed by building top falling.

BTW, an additional blanket of snow fell during the course of after-dark hours Saturday with accumulation between 1 to 2 inches.

It is indeed now a 4-letter word.

Watched this documentary yesterday about the involvement and responsibility of the Mississippi Sovereignty Council -- an official state government entity, that channeled info to state and local police units which also meant Klan (with police as members)-- in restraining civil rights/voting initiatives, including the murder of the 3 civil rights activists (" Mississippi Burning" ) near Philadelphia, MS in 1964. This info was amassed by hired private detective agencies with black employees and volunteer black spies who were invested in the existing power structures of segregation.

Using my alternate older name from a cryptic disguise, I'm at a disadvantage; unless you're a MD-based poster on Coffee With Pie. I don't think you are, though.

And for all I know, you started your post by addressing yourself in that disparaging post toward others.

So, there you are. Nowhere.

Just watched one of most entertaining Graham Norton chat shows
ever......Matt Damon, Billy Murray and Hugh Bonneville (Downton
Abbey) along with Paloma Faith.
The male guests were discussing their roles in Monuments Men
which opens in London this weekend. Trailers were shown.
Regardless of omissions, I MUST see this movie. All credit to
George Clooney in retrospect.
I don't mind admitting when I have gone OTT.
and John Goodman too!

When this subject was discussed previously, I used the word "entertainment" which was a lame word, but functional in an "umbrella" sense.

Films based on factual events deviate because of budget and time ... all the time. Characters may be merged, or completely omitted. Band of Brothers would be an example. I would guess Schindler's List might be one also. Lordy, our film-makers and television offering creators have played with U.S. history and make myths out of it and our "heroes" quite frequently.

Sometimes a location might be wrong, or a sequence of events.

There is also the "need" to tell an entertaining (however the meaning), compelling story.

These films have value as they are catalysts in folks digging and knowing more about little-known events, facts, and people and what it really was all about. Or in some cases, the real deal about well-known history.

I have been called a N#### lover on back roads in the Magnolia State, never corrected them because to use a vernacular they could understand I would have to agree with them so I would smile and wave

I was driving from Ft. Polk in Leesville across the state to Slidell, LA back in mid '88 and I swear when I went through the small town of Oakdale (think stinky paper mills) I saw a sign that said

"Negro Curfew
Sun-down Sun-up"

It was just a couple of weeks after I'd moved there from IN, and I was flabbergasted. I do believe that right around that time interracial marriage was still illegal in the state as well. But over in the southeastern portion of the state (mostly cajun) race relations seemed much warmer, better even than up north here. I saw much more voluntary desegregation in neighborhoods, churches and socially than I still do, here. Strange in LA in the late 80s I saw both the worst and the best I've known in the same state. LA is like that though, a land of contradictions. Made some pralines, thought about you. Hey have you tried BlueBell's Pecan Praline ice cream????? BEST store-bought ice cream EVER!

the "South" has nothing on this place when it comes to the KKK and the good old boy club
