Referring to Damien Lewis...

Lewis was born in St John's Wood, London, the son of Charlotte Mary (ne Bowater) and J. Watcyn Lewis, a city broker.[2][3] His paternal grandparents were Welsh.[4] His maternal grandfather was Lord Mayor of London Sir Ian Bowater and his maternal grandmother's ancestors include Lord Dawson of Penn (a doctor to the British Royal Family) and philanthropist Alfred Yarrow.[2][5] He has stated that he "went to English boarding schools and grew up around people very much like Soames and in a milieu very much like the Forsytes'".[6]

As a child, Lewis made several visits to the United States to visit relatives during his summers.[7][8] He first decided to become an actor at age 16.[3] He was educated at the independent Ashdown House School in Forest Row, East Sussex, and at Eton College. He graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1993, after which he served as a stage actor for the Royal Shakespeare Company. During his time with the RSC, he played Borgheim in Adrian Noble's production of Henrik Ibsen's Little Eyolf and Posthumus in William Shakespeare's Cymbeline. He also starred in another of Ibsen's plays, as Karsten Bernick in Pillars of the Community at the National Theatre in November 2005.[9]

GRACE.
I read this only this morning, I immediately thought of you and
your love of Nature. It is part of a RSPB advert in my colour
supplement.
'If there's no home for nature'
"There will be no evening starling chatter
Nor swifts left to soar.
Tere will be no hedgehogs nestled in your garden
No woodlands to explore.
Spring will pass without a bluebell
And June without a bee
Butterflies will flounder
And the birds without a tree.
If there's no home for nature
The wonders on our doorstep will disappear
There will be no place to play
No meadows. No moorlands. No wildernesses. No adventure.
If there's no home for nature,
There will be no nature."
Like yourself, I appreciate the nature on our doorstep, we are so
blessed by the beauty of it.
That's a very nice piece El and so true..
Enjoyed it and THANKS.

We were promised blazing sunshine all this weekend
NONE of which happened:)
still nice even temps and no rain.

The little boy who was shot,
you'll be glad to hear, is recovering..in hospital.

His school class will be receiving counselling today..

The world of 2014!!!

YW Grace....thought you would enjoy.

I wonder how the people responsible for the little boy being caught
up in the middle of their drug wars, feel about him being shot?
If they have any sort of conscience, remorse.
Terrible thing, I did make a point of finding out how he was doing
but thanks for the update Grace, to be hoped he makes a full
recovery, although no doubt it will be with him mentally forever.

Beautiful day here.....out to water the containers.

'Morning Denny....not a prog I watch so cannot comment. Not a shabby salary tho'..:)
Especially for a 24 year old girl who doesn't have a degree in journalism :) We had shocking news this weekend. Louis Lerner was an executive with the IRS and she was targeting conservative groups trying to get a tax free status for their organization. The first lie put out was it was just a couple of idiots in the Ohio office. It has now been proved that it was conected to the White House using the IRS for political purposes. Learner pleaded the 5th and refused to testify. All her e mails were subpoenaed months ago but not delivered by the IRS. They now say that all her E mails for the last two years have been lost when her computer crashed. That lie is so lame! They think people don't know that all government documents are backed up so they can survive a nuclear strike or a natural disaster. This is the most corrupt administration in history. At least Nixon never destroyed the tapes nor did he use the IRS to target his enemies. 10% of the targeted conservatives have also had a tax audit

And do you remember the words...Donald Rumsfeld

It ended up like a tongue-twister to the
amusement of many and became
a famous saying.

I just googled it for accuracy and it came up immediately..LOL.

Grace that actually makes a great deal of sense. The first step in solving a problem is figuring out what information you need but don't have

and Bob's your uncle! ;) last week, I heard this in the same PBS TV show episode I'd heard this declaration months ago -- Endeavour (Inspector Morse as a young detective.)

I was negligent in mentioning the play nabbed a Tony Award as well.

The production itself won the 2014 Tony award for Outstanding Play.
