John Goodman featured in the last movie I saw too....'Inside Llewen Davies' may have
spelt his given name wrongly, so used to the Welsh spelling which would be Llewellyn
as in Prince Llewellyn, last of the Welsh Princes.
It is permitted to spit as you pronounce the double 'L's hahaha
I can understand certain facts/features being omitted, or even added to a movie, can't
always be exact, different when historic facts are altered completely to please the
audience...and the movie maker.
Sadly, the critiques over here slammed Monuments Men and called it a
Monumental Disappointment.
The movie has been slammed here too. I have no clue how many Brits were cast in very minor roles, but at least a major support role was nabbed by Lord Grantham!

BTW, a little after Christmas, PBS telecast "Mr. Stink" starring Hugh Bonneville.

Anyway ... we all here dwell and play and thrive with one another here in the hamlet of Llareggub.

Good mornin/tea-time Kitchen-eers!

Nature allowed us to sample what Spring could be like by providing us with
one beautiful day as of yesterday, it was perfect from beginning to end.
Back to what is considered 'the norm' today, but...there are buds on the Lilac
tree, shoots on the roses and give it time, Spring is on it's way.
Hope you are surviving the extreme weather there Dear Rose.....<3
Buds and shoots already! Oh my word

'Twas a pleasant enough day in the afternoon after the clouds broke yesterday.

More snow, sleet, and freezing rain coming through middle-earth Indiana today.

Yes, agreed,
the year is moving on 'despite and apart' from angry storms, high winds and torrential rain..
like as if the year were saying,
"You can all be doing as you like, but I'm pushing on
here with the seasons- that's my job" lol
"Twas mild here yesterday, with light sunshine
and a lighter green on the grass, enough to clutch the
heartstrings and see SPRING...
TG TOBE ALIVE to see another year..
True dat, Grace .... To be, or not to be, that IS the question.[not my words, lol]

Billie Holiday most known for song.

"Strange Fruit" is a poem written by Abel Meeropol, a white, Jewish high school teacher from the Bronx and a member of the Communist Party, as a protest against lynchings. He sometimes published under the pen name Lewis Allan, after two sons who were stillborn.[6][7]

The lyrics, very similar to those of Théodore de Banville's poem "Le Verger Du Roi Louis" written seventy years before, are under copyright but have been republished in full in an

"Bitter Fruit" in 1937 in The New York Teacher, a union magazine.[9] Though Meeropol had often asked others (notably Earl Robinson) to set his poems to music, he set "Strange Fruit" to music himself and the piece gained a certain success as a protest song in and around New York. Meeropol, his wife, and black vocalist Laura Duncan performed it at Madison Square Garden.[10]

ITEM:
The story of this brutal winter may best be told 60 miles east of Buffalo, where a mine runs as deep as the Empire State Building is tall.

It's here where you'll find a couple hundred miners 1,300 feet below ground working nine-hour shifts, seven days a week to keep up with the nation's voracious appetite for this season's hottest commodity: Salt.

Safe journey Paise...allow yourself plenty of time to get there, and back,
and take some refreshments with you...no need to telly you, I know.
btw...I saw something about Agave in a forum to the effect that it is dangerous
to health, cannot find the thread again, it was quoting from Huffington Post,
I shall try to find the link. While others say it is healthy...so I want to know based
on what evidence...
Peace today when paying your respects to the deceased, and catch you later.
Thank you El, it was dry going down but treacherous coming back. Everyone was driving cautiously, I think folks have seen enough accidents and slide-offs this Winter that it's made Nervous Nelly's of us all, lol. But we're back.
Oh the disappearing posts! I posted a reply to you with a link about the agave nectar and it must not be showing, so I'll repost. I really like the taste of it, and you do use less of it than sugar, but it has some drawbacks that upon learning them I've cut us back from daily use (hubby was sweetening his coffee with it), to the occasional treat. Everything in moderation.
I hope good weather is holding for you. Our warmest day since early November is bringing the risk of severe thunderstorms with it on Thursday...figures, lol.
Thank you for the well wishes, this funeral was for hubby's great uncle, a well-loved and elderly gentleman who has gone home after a well-lived life. The funeral was truly a celebration of his life. He wanted dancing at his funeral, so on the closing song his grandson held out his hand to his now-widowed grandmother, Nat King Cole's 'Unforgettable' was played and very quickly the whole of the chapel was filled with dancing couples, laughter, and profound appreciation. It was a beautiful service.

Something CRAZY, my great-grandfather was the constable of Marion when that happened. My grandfather was a young boy and though told to stay home when his father got wind of it and left to try to stop it, he snuck off on his bike to follow him, and almost witnessed his father coming to his end, too. Great-grandpa resigned the next day, and it haunted him until his death. Ironic, that they lived in the home my great grandmother was born in, in 1899; and that house was built by her family in 1844, and a part of the Underground Railroad. It was on the National Register of Historic Places, until it burned down in the late 90s.
