  1. Merry Chrimble and Happy New Year Lowey, wherever you are.
  2. Where are you? Summer's over. You should be back from gallivanting and check in with us.
  3. Two episodes down of Last Tango and I'm loving it. Thanks!
  4. Good news! We're getting "Last Tango in Halifax" starting Sept. 8. I'm looking forward to it.
  5. Not a problem except for the coffee part. That will be a struggle!
  6. I started watching The Bletchley Circle on PBS last night. Serial killer and codebreakers. Have a look.

    Hi Low. I just wanted to tell you that I have been really enjoying reading your posts on the Thatcher thread. Very interesting stuff and you have been very informative.
  8. Thanks, Lowey I'll put them on the list. I downloaded tvchaos last week and a couple of days later my computer locked up. Not saying the torrent was the cause but I was hit with a scam that said the Dept. of Homeland Security had me on their list of violators and I had to send $300 to get unlocked! Fortunately my husband is a computer pro and got me out of the mess. So I'll keep watching for all those shows either on TV or Netflix. Broadcloth looks especially good. I checked out both via google.
  9. I'm still having trouble. I signed up and got on tvchaos but run into trouble after trying to download. The message says You have chosen to open _________ which is a TORRENT file. What should Firefox do with this file? Then when I click on Open with Torrent_auto_file, nothing happens. Think I need to read up on this whole torrent thing and how it's supposed to work.
  10. My husband blocked the domain for the first site but I was able to sign up with the second. I haven't watched it yet but plan to do so tonight. Thanks!

If you feel so inclined a comment would be appreciated.

Respect a believers right to believe, but they should damn well repect our right to challenge such utterly illogical notions.

The Noble Nobel

by Lowaicue on 10-15-2012 at 05:59 AM
Once upon a time a young Chinese boy was taken by his parents to have dinner with a family friend. The boy seldom had enough to eat having been brought up when Chairman Mao's greatest errors were being perpetrated and something like sixty million people died of starvation and associated illnesses.

The little boy's mother had very little food and made soup from the bark of trees and augmented their diet with grass roots, leaves and a tiny bit of rice.

The little boy

WOT! No trailers?

by Lowaicue on 07-23-2012 at 07:13 PM
Dressed in a bright yellow oilskin, hooded over a matching hard hat, the young reporter told us of the devastation following last night's typhoon.

'There are lots of leaves and twigs on the floor', she announced, 'although the wind and rain has died down considerably. There are still no ferries operating to the outlying islands.'

Well that was a relief!

But last night we were running round the apartment with buckets and towels as water leaked through

Tales from a frog's armpit

Lunch with Picasso


‘While you are here we must take you to La Columbe d’Or.’

That was in the car from Nice airport. And then I forgot about it as it swirled in a maelstrom of freshly baked croissants, gallons of very drinkable rose wine and sorties into the market at Antibes and the promenade at Juan les Pins. Quite as I had imagined it except for a strip of shops that could have been in any English seaside resort.

Our hosts were mortally offended

We have a new wine shop on what the 'management' laughingly call our 'shopping piazza'. They sell French wine and French cheese and on one of my fairly regular visits I got to mulling over the world of the grape.

There was this old New Zealander and another guy who described himself as a sommelier and they were tasting some of the stock. I joined them, eager to learn. I learned that wine stored in American oak barrels differed from wine stored in European oak barrels - wait, wait

The August Moon

by Lowaicue on 09-12-2011 at 06:11 AM
Wei Wei is four. His sister Wing is six. Yet this evening they will be running round our mall waving strange shaped lanterns until past midnight. Their parents will have purchased these lanterns because the lanterns that Wei Wei made at kindergarten were of traditional design but Mr and Mrs Leung are modern parents with huge hopes for their perfectly behaved, cutesy off-spring. Wei Wei has a space ship lit by a battery powered bulb while Wing has a large flower of indeterminate pedigree. Mr and
