  1. Braveheart....once was enough ....total rubbish, only good thing about it was the music ...or any films to do with football....such as Bend it Like Beckham .....
  2. Here you go lassie23, as she was back then. She did have a proper figure though, no stick insect I feel the pain too Well into my 50's now and still hang on to my size 8 jeans but no matter how I try somehow can't seem to get them on!!
  3. Do you mean Sherilyn Fenn? The one who who played Audrey Horne in Twin Peaks? She was very pretty. Its been ages since I watched the re-run of Twin Peaks and I can't recall if she survived or not. If she did, and I think she did, I wonder if they'll bring the character back for the new series of Twin Peaks.
  4. Lovely photo, which was nice to see. Traced my Prideaux family roots back through Bristol, Somerset and currently to Devon so far. The Prideaux family orignates from Cornwall so wonder if there are any earlier ancestral connections to Cambourne Parish Church. Many Prideaux's of course in and around Cambourne but not sure whether they link into my branch of the family as yet.
  5. Can always sit through classics like Sense and Sensibility, Dangerous Liaisons, Wuthering Heights,etc again and again. Can always watch the old classic musicals over and over - Oliver especially with Mark Lester and Ron Moody and - dare I say it - the sound of music with Julie Andrews - such lovely songs to sing along to, whatever your're doing.
  6. Looked outside earlier and must admit there seemed to be an odd almost eerie light outside, weird.
  7. Indeed, he is a very beautiful cat. We did rehome the 3 black kitties I fostered, all 3 to the same home.
  8. Unsure to be honest but may have something to do with it I guess. Someone else mentioned to me it was something to do with all the funny cat videos on the internet, black cats are perceived as not coming across as well as other colours when filmed
  9. Sorry off topic I know but the cat charities will tell you that sadly black cats are the hardest to rehome for some reason....we therefore always refer to them as mini panthers!!
  10. Not much happening around these parts. We have heavy rain and although I have heard a couple of rumbles of thunder I haven't seen any lightening. Most of the action is passing us by it seems.
  11. Managed to pick 4 ....yes 4.... little beans off then for tea, very tender and nice. The runner beans have done OK though
  12. Weekend at Bernies - has anyone seen it? I found it one of them funniest films I have ever seen. For drama haven't seen Dangerous Liaisons in a while, wish they'd put that on again, terrific film
  13. Hi and yep I totally agree that has been the problem. Someone kindly posted a link to problems with bean plants and the soil been too cold when planted out was on that list. Can't see any evidence of pests, fungus or any other disease. They have recovered to a degree with a couple of beans appearing!! Didn't plant them out until well into June though but I think there must have been some coldish nights in June,
  14. Listen to classic fm all the while now, they often play some of the greatest movie music...... Currently playing the John Dunbar theme from Dances with Wolves ( so I''m day dreaming of riding off into the distance with a young Kevin Costner, ha ha).
  15. Have ridden horses all my life and so, as a little girl as you might have expected, this was a insprational theme tune for me
  16. I agree Versailles theme is good, brilliant series as well. another favourite of mine, the Borgias, I was absolutely gutted when theybfailed to finish the story with a 4th series
  17. Oh, so very many to mention spring to mind......Downton Abbey music is beautiful, Brideshead Revisited, theme from the earlier Pride and Prejudice, Game of Thrones, anyone remember the UFO theme....i'm sure I'll think of more later
  18. Just harvested my charlotte potatoes, excellent crop and very tasty. Runner beans doing ok but dwarf beans were a waste of time this year. Loads of tomotoes.....just hope they ripen now.
  19. Me, I'll have a moan about it For me the summer (certainly around these parts) has been....shall I say.... inconsistent. Its either been too cold, too hot, too wet or too windy for me. The latter has really hacked me off....had to prop my beans up last night, take the hanging baskets down off the front before they blew away. Thought the baskets around the back had some shelter....nope....came home from work tonight only to find one of the fucshia baskets destroyed, all broken bits on the floor.....the wind must have weakened the stems - lovely double pink flowers. The consistent wind has also dried the garden up so much and now.......it's too dry!! Nice reasonable temps with regular rainfall every so often to water the garden.....and without that pesky wind would have been nice
  20. Oops! Can't keep up with my Jesse, he was semi feral I guess when I took him in. Get daily dead voles, (he eats the mice if I can't get them off him), came home to a dead vole and dead rat side by side in the car port last week, keep telling him I don't want all these pressies! The worst was coming home to a live squirrel in the kitchen, which he'd bought in through 2 cat flaps!!
  21. We're having some of the runner beans for lunch tomorrow though.....hope they are OK.
  22. Thanks for the link, will have a peruse. They are very sad looking plants
