    • Ok….so I was wrong. You can not watch it on Youtube…(I think) My sister told me she watched them on Amazon Prime and rented them. I don’t know when I will get to watching the series….but I will. I just finished “Expedition Bigfoot” on Discovery +. And unless anyone else here is somewhat a believer I am not going to share my findings 🧐

    • Boy oh boy was I WRONG! This is the wrong movie. The correct movie is called “Backwell Ghost” and there are 5 episodes. We watched the first one and I was sooooo disappointed. VERY VERY disappointed. Granted I always make efforts to debunk everything so I debunked scenes as I watched the movie. MAYBE if I went in not thinking about that I might have been scared. 👎
      My little sister asked us to just watch one more before we give up on this….so we said we will watch it tomorrow.

    • Hi Friend 🤗
      YEARS ago….early 2000’s I went to see the Irish Tenors in concert and fell in love with Ronin Tynan ❤️ It is one of my most favorite concerts I have attended. They all sang so beautifully and they would joke around between songs. So funny. And when they sang Danny Boy there was not a dry eye in the crowd. I will try and post a short video of them at the end of this post.

      We use to have a few Scots and Irish who posted with us. The Scotsmen would get wild and unruly so they would have to keep them apart 😁 (Teasing of course) Mr. Bradly still post with us.
      We had a poster who was half Scots and was born in Canada and learned to play Bagpipes because it was what they did over there.I guess you would call them culture classes of sorts. He learned Bagpipes and he was about to start the Gaelic classes but he didn’t complete them for some reason. I can’t remember the reason.
      Anyhow…..you should look into your family tree.

      Irish Tenors💜

      • I haven’t looked into my family tree and when my mother was still alive, she could never go back more than 2 generations before the names started blurring or being unknown. But there is site where for about 130.00 or so, they are supported to be able to accept a blood sample and see who all else has been tested that is related to you. I have been thinking about trying that.

        And the singing of the tenors was good also.

    • As this song is so widely known and enjoyed by many, I find the fact that no one knows who actually wrote the music (lyrics came after the fact) more fascinating than the song itself.

    • Thanks, James. I am glad we finally got your comment up here so I can respond. Very glad you like. Actually a Christian song “Amazing Grace” is I think my very favorite song for bagpipes, but this one is wonderful too.

      We never truly lose our roots, I don’t think, any of us.

    • I remember this story. He was just the cutest person making his rounds around his property. I had no idea Neanderthals were being Neanderthals. Another sad thing about this….is that this online behavior is not shocking. We have encountered doses of it here at times. I have seen it at times on Twitter and sometimes I will just respond with a simple “Idiot” IF I even respond. I normally do not allow myself to get pulled into a back and forth. Because we know you can not make sense of them. Maybe a punk kid….maybe a sad pathetic adult. I try not to think too much about those animals because I can easily get frustrated. But I wonder if their accounts can be blocked if enough people complain?
      There must be ways to handle them these days.
      We know this man was a wonderful person with a kind heart…..those punks can’t change that.

    • The Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter are coming under increasing pressure to clean up their acts when it come to abuse. Just recently some black sports stars over here have been trolled by these strange people – some included death threats! There is a growing trend within the population that is getting louder as the days go by, they are calling on these media sites to do more than they are doing right now – we all know they can do more but are they willing to put the time in it will take to monitor their sites properly?

    • I know you have heard about some of the stuff going on in the United States. Looking at what has happened here, and hearing this episode of “nastiness online”,I am not at all sure that some of these people wouldn’t do the same thing in a face to face setting, which makes me even more delighted that I don’t know them and likely will never see them. I certainly hope not, because it is bad enough on the internet, I don’t want people like that in my personal life.

      There are efforts to curtail some of that type thing here in the United States to, with the predictable screams that doing so is a violation of “freedom of speech”. Yes, that is a value in our nation, but saying nasty things just to stir up heartache and fear should not be acceptable under any circumstance in my opinion.

        There has always been a need in some people to be nasty to others online. They must gain some satisfaction by doing it but I have never understood it.

        • yes, and before that there were some that seemed to “need” to pick on persons in real life (there still are now). I don’t know why that is, but it exists.

    • Beautiful tree, and good poem. I did some poetry at one time for a site that had competitions, sort of, in writing poems or stories based on a word or picture (both kinds) and know how hard it is sometimes to come up with one that works.
      Good work, Jules.

    • Astra Zeneca was the one I wanted when it was still in the testing phase. But it hasn’t been approved over here yet and my mother (retired nurse) recommended Pfizer. So Pfizer is the jab I got. And I should say STAB because like I mentioned ….I didnt feel the initial 💉shot….but after a while I felt like my arm was stabbed or better yet…punched 100 times by Rocky Balboa 🤣

    • I love, love, love shows like this.
      So interesting! I would buy up a Chateau like this in a heartbeat if I could. Reminds me of some of the pictures my dad’s godmother in Switzerland used to send.

      I also love watching Fixer Upper, Joanna and Chip. Tiny Houses. They truly amaze me!

      • YES…..I have to monitor how many shows I get into because they are addicting. AND…there are so many shows like this out there.
        I think from what I saw…they have lived there a few years and still have not got to half the rooms. Renovating them that is.

        • They really are very addicting.
          It’s been quite easy for me to get hooked on them last year. The company I work for has had all 150 of us working remotely, so I turn the TV on for noise, and of course, end up watching while doing tasks.

          I can’t even imagine renovating that many rooms. That is a LOT!!!

          • You got to work from home? Thank goodness for that. Being able to keep working through this pandemic. I would be horrible at it. I see those commercials where people are in pajama bottoms and nice tops doing conference calls. I know myself…..I would probably start watching soap operas all day and actually getting some work done at midnight ☺️
            YES….45 rooms in this Chateau. I definitely would have to marry a Journeyman to do all this work. You should start watching the show…..this man could do everything. He is ex military and a chef. He also is a trained gardener I think…he just knows it all. And she is so cute. She is so talented with design and unique ideas. And to do all of this with small children….AMAZING.

    • This is quite a lengthy documentary series which first began airing in June 2016.
      It has 7 seasons, and 32 episodes in all.
      So there’s much to see if you want to watch the entire series.

      There are several DIY shows which come and go in the UK and one of the stand-out programs is called “Grand Designs” – a program which follows the construction of a house from foundations to the roof. It may sound ordinary but it really isn’t.

    • Are you serious?
      I can’t wait for them to release more Chateau seasons.
      We also have MANY shows like this. But I was drawn to the Chateau because of the amazing castle like home….and the beautiful couple doing it all.

    • Someone remodeled the big house (Chateau) which is not my thing at all. I prefer getting an apartment as is, and not having to worry about it. Oh maybe pick out a picture or two. LOL This somehow brings to mind an interview I saw part of earlier today of Fran Lebowitz who emphasised that she is lazy. She got one bad job after another when she first moved to New York at 18, and finally just realized she didnt’ wanna work, period.

      That’s sort of me.

      • I kind of get this. I think we feel LAZY when its something we really are not passionate about. I never had to do a remodel….and I probably won’t ever. But I love the idea of it…I love how creative some people can get over it. My fun is designing a room. But….it is also draining too.
        I sometimes just want to hire a decorator to come and decorate every room in my house because I can never make my mind up. I can spend months debating over a chair…..and once I decide on the model….add a few more months on picking a color. And add a few more months after that for picking the fabric/texture. ITS HORRIBLE. But…. once I get going I am ok.

        Yeah…..pictures are an issue with me too. Because I only want to hang my own art work. But I don’t because I want to paint in a color scheme I decide on for the room. And ….and….and…..it doesn’t end you see. 😔

    • If I were you…and your calendar is clear….ROAD TRIP it.

      My sons Tribe is already offering them the immunization. I am not from their Tribe so I am not on the “early” “Privlidged” list …ha. They of course are not going to get it but said they would call and see if I could take their spot. But I know how these Native American politics work……so I told them not too. I can wait for my legitimate time to come up. Plus…like I said I like the way another immunization sounds that has not been approved yet.

      Keeping my fingers crossed for you 🤞

      • Yeah, I have no plans to drive to another state, was just presenting how things are going in my state. Fortunately, these were people that qualified by age etc, and it was a matter of finding a spot to get it. Sadly, they had to drive to New Orleans from whatever smaller town they lived in to get it at a health clinic that was originally set up for HIV/AIDS and then broaden to serving the general public.

        Louisiana is likely one of the “more backward” states about a lot of things, unfortunately, especially in fairly rural areas.

    • I hope 🤞 that you’ll be able to get the vaccine sooner than later.

      For me, I’m do leery about receiving any type of vaccine. I had a bad injury from the flu vaccination that I had in 2017. It’s caused me to fear being injected as I want no further complications.

      Best of luck to you.

      • I understand your concern, but I have never had that much trouble with any vaccines, the most being a small amount of discomfort and a little swelling for a day or so, so I am going for it as soon as it is available to my age group.

    • Thankfully, here in the UK, being a much smaller country, the logistics are not as complex as those in the States. There are lots of local ‘hubs’ being established to administer the vaccine locally so people will not have to travel miles from their residence. The aim is set these hubs within a 10 mile radius – or less, so people can get their jabs without too much faffing about.

      • Yes, in a smaller, more compact country, things are a bit easier to resolve. I doubt i, even living in a larger city, would probably have to drive close to 10 miles in order to get the vaccination.

    • While I agree it’s a shame that people are finding themselves in this position, if I had those same risks, you bet 150miles wouldn’t keep me away. I’ve driven further for much much less. I hope you find this vaccine soon.

  • My sister “Queen of Horror” sent this to me earlier today and I didn’t watch it at the time because I wasn’t in the mood to watch a horror scene. But she assured me it was different. So….I just watched it. […]

    • There’s much one can read into this film – allegory or metaphor, but I wouldn’t consider it a horror film. 11 people all sat around a table feasting on what will become their last supper. The biblical last supper was attended by Jesus and his 12 disciples. Biblical connotations?

      The diners’ appear to be eating several endangered species with gusto, and have no moral compunction over the terrible consequences such attitudes will ultimately cause. So Mankind sinks under the weight of his own sins – this being gluttony, and again, another biblical reference is exposed. In a visual metaphor we see the diners’ and their table drop to the lower floor. . .are there no limits that mankind will sink to for momentary satisfaction?

      Maybe they are in purgatory forced to repeat their past sins before ascending to heaven?

      The script writer definitely had something in mind when this was written, and even to the casual viewer it is clear that there is so much more going on here then what is seen on the surface. It’s the insatiable appetite – primarily – the need to use up all the Earth’s resources rather than protect them. Mankind is descending rather than ascending as He should be.

      There is more, but I could go on forever.

      • After reading your response, I have to say my first reaction is “why didn’t I take it any deeper”. I seem to tend to be so literal about things like this. A group of people eating and falling through several floors, is just people eating while the floor falls out from under them…and I miss any “allegory” that might be there.

        Suspect you are right, don’t doubt it for a minute. I just don’t think in those terms.

        • I might have done the same thing as you….but I was asked my opinion of the movie so I had to look at it from as many angles as possible. My sister can get into some deeper discussions. So I have to “try” to dive as deep too. ☺️

    • I think you hit all areas that we discussed over this. Well….the thoughts the people in the group brought up to her and she shared with me. And I just realized DoDo bird me didn’t post my view. I thought for sure Gluttony ….that was the only thing I saw. But she brought up all the ideas she was discussing with other people….which was along the lines of what you wrote. Your very observant Jules.
      I also felt….this short film was not “Horror” unless of course you are a devout religious being 🙃 It is labeled Horror which is why I didnt watch it right away. So again….agree with Jules on this.
      But I also felt it was a nicely made short film.

      I started watching a show which distracted me from posting my view here last night. I can’t stand getting caught up in a series. 😁

    • Ok, I am going to respond without reading what you said so that you can get the closest thing to a “fresh” viewpoint as possible.

      First, I was wondering what the heck was going on. These intense people were really dedicated to eating whatever that was. Then the food stuff bothered me. It looked like they were eating baby chickens or something..I mean in the egg chickens, unhatched chickens, except they were fairly big so what were they really?!!

      Then as time went on, my attention went from “what the heck are they eating” to when is the next floor going to give way, and why didn’t these crazy people just start out on the ground floor in the first place.

      I think it ended up being more perplexing and sort of funny rather than “horror.”

      • YES…not horror in the sense that we thought. But I imagine a religious person could see the horror in it if they see the “Gluttony” and the “descending” floors.

        • Yeah, I think I would be pretty “horrorified” if the floors kept giving way. I wouldn’t be really happy for even one to give way.

  • Well, today, I found out I am too young.  What for you ask?  Well, in Louisiana, I am apparently too young to received the vaccine for Covid-19 right now.  It seems that the Governor and his advisors in th […]

    • I’m also considered too young for the vaccine right now, but, I am also considered a medically vulnerable person so come mid February I should be offered my first dose.

      Fingers crossed.

    • Yeah, I live in Louisiana as well. Im definitely way too young to get the vaccine. Im probably one of the youngest people on this site.

    • My Mom & Dad received their first Covid Immunization shot last week 🥳
      I appreciate my sister so much for making sure my parents make it to their appointments and scheduling their Covid immunization. My mother is a retired nurse so she did her research on this vaccination before deciding that she wanted this one. I on the other hand really like the way the AstraZenica vaccine sounds. But that still has not been released as far as I know. Which is ok…because I don’t know when my turn in line will come.

  • I wish I could hand them all a fluffy pillow & a cup of hot tea 🍵

    • All this for one moment of national insanity.

      • Yes! We could have had this on the “day of insanity” but some people in the White House didn’t think it would “look” good.

    • And a warm blanket. Bless each and every one of them. I heard yesterday that at least 20,000 National Guard members are expected to be in Washington D.C. for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, which is roughly four times more than the amount of troops currently in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

      • Uh huh…..my sister has been moved to a smaller base and smaller living quarters in Afghanistan since bases have been closing over there.
        Just seeing these soldiers sleeping there to keep everyone safe gave me such a feeling of good and warmth.

    • Are these the National Guard gathered in the Capitol to keep our Congresspersons safe? If so, give ’em a blanket and pillow for me. 🙂

  • As above, then so below
    Not so true right now
    In height I find the solace
    That only a dream will allow
    I know I am not alone
    As I watch the clouds go by
    It’s so safe and serene up here
    In my imaginary city in the sky

  • Horrible Picture…sorry about that.

    • Just saw it on the late news.

      Why did it take so long?

      • Possibly it took the deaths at the Insurrection he encouraged? I feel anyone encouraging these actions should be banned from any Social Site where certain people could easily be brain washed. Big cry babies. Yeah….I want to use other language but a so called “man” crying like a baby pretty much is what I see here.

    • crazy

    • Im not surprised

  • Something to think about.

    • I have not watched a Nostradamus video in so long. There was a time I could not get enough of him. I remember reading a few books about it so long ago. I think I was a teenager. It was kind of spooky back in the day.
      Amazing how accurate he was 🔮

      • I read a book in my teens by Erika Cheetham called “The Prophecies of Nostradamus.” The book contained all the quatrains which Nostradamus wrote. It was an interesting read which relied heavily upon interpretation more than anything else.
