   StormCnter  Mei, I'm very late in responding to your request, but you can watch the entire first episode here at PBS's website. I did so yesterday, while I ate lunch. No wonder I have to shake crumbs from my keyboard on a regular basis.

   NotaBene posted on Suggested Viewing/Listening  Anybody watching The Good Wife? I used to like this show when it was about Lockhart-Gardner but it has become too complicated and yesterday they featured Valerie Jarrett. She was awful. I like to watch some shows to distract me from what is happening in this country under this administration. Why did they have to bring this woman? Featuring Jarrett yesterday was a low point. I think this is the last episode I am watching.

Any comments?

   Richdet  My comment is: Thanks for the warning! My curiosity about this show just went out the window.

I caught parts of a couple of "Good Wife" episodes last season, which struck me as very well acted and interesting. So I have been thinking about checking it out. As for Valerie Jarrett, I would counter: why "Madam Secretary" as the lead-in? From the ads, the latter show looks like some valentine to a Hillary Clinton surrogate. It appears that CBS is stacking the deck for Democrat women on Sunday nights.

   Gram77  I'm not happy with the merger. I would much rather have seen how Carey and Alisha would have gone forward on their own. I would like to ask if any one watched the opening show Gracepoint? I wonder how long it will take to bring out the past of the new detective put in charge. Something fishy there. Also I am trying to get into How To Get Away With Murder. Lots of lose ends with this one that I can't tie together yet.

   NotaBene posted on Blessings  I have so many blessings, first of all my husband of 43 years, it is a blessing to share my life with him. My children and grandchildren, my faith, and last but not least my 93 year old mother. She has been a wonderful mother and a good friend all my life.

When I was young my mother taught me to always count my blessings; to be thankful for what I had and not worry about what I did not have.
That was a great advice.

   NotaBene posted on Movies & Reviews  Thanks to HopeandGlory for the tip. We just watched "Flying Tigers". We loved it. Later tonight we watched "Mogambo" with Ava Garner, Grace Kelly and Clark Gable. What a wonderful movie.

Wonderful movies. Love the connection. Rake King I am looking forward to tomorrow's quizzes.

   HopeandGlory  I'm so glad you enjoyed "Flying Tigers" Notabene, next to "God is my Co-Pilot" it's one of Hubby's most favorite movies. "God is my Co-Pilot" being #1 and probably "North to Alaska" is #2 . . . Smile!

   Safetydude  H&G,

I read "God Is My Co-Pilot" in high school and then had a life experience playing golf 'with' General Scott and meeting him at one of his annual tournaments to help support the "Museum Of Aviation", outside Robins AFB in Warner Robins, GA.
I was stationed at Robins AFB and one of our old 116 TFW Wings' F-105's is on display at the museum.

   HopeandGlory  Hubby said "Oh Boy Dude, what a wonderful experience you had meeting Gen. Scott." Hubby said he also read the book as a boy. Maybe that is why he joined the Air Force . . . Smile!

   Safetydude  "Scotty" as he was called by his friends(I was not one )but we all called him that, visited our wing when we were flying B-1's out of Robins sometime in the late 80's.
I think he was also in his 80's when flew in one of our jets.

He was a well know and a welcome guest on base.

Thank your Hubby for his service.

   NotaBene posted on Crafts  I just mailed this sweater to my grandson who is one year old. His father loves sailing.

Intarsia is a lot of work but it is nice to have a picture to make it more lively.

   Gerty  Full disclosure: I had to google the term 'intarsia' to really understand your post, Miss NB. But of course! We used these methods to knit argyle socks years ago.

And what a charming result you achieved in this sweater! The little sail boat is perfect!

It has also occurred to me that your grandson will appreciate your work for many, many years to come.

   NotaBene  Definition of intarsia: Intarsia is a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours.

I made many samples of sailboats until I managed to knit this sailboat. There are videos in the internet that explain how to do it. They were very helpful.

Thank you Gerty for your comments.
