Over the two-month summer vacation from driving a school bus, I have been binge-watching Downton Abbey. Ever since the Forsyte Saga (Soames!) I have loved watching British social drama. Verizon wanted $2.99 to buy each HD episode, but found a hack: got the free PBS app and joined their $5/month Passport membership, giving unlimited access to this series and many others. The characters and dialogue are "brilliant", as some Brits say, and an inspiration for the repartee I will need to deal with middle-schoolers again come September.

Greatest sports drama every year: Little League World Championship Series. Canada now playing Japan. Each Japanese player has bent the bill of his ballcap to a peak, reminiscent of a monastery roof (reminiscent, at least, to me).

Good one!

They'll be lucky to have such a chauffeur.

I happen to have ALL the series of the program as BluRay disks, which I think I got upon joining the local PBS station as a supporter at some monetary level or other. A very nice "gift". Seems a long time ago, by now.

Years ago I also admired the writer's series, "Monarch of the Glen". Smaller-, less monumental-scale, but maybe even more brilliant, in charming ways. I think of it as a lesser-known masterpiece of his. And he appears in it! (as "Lord Kilwillie"): the "fellow" (Julian Fellowes) can act, as well as write.

Do you do any gardening?

Nothing wrong by me.

Wrong by me! In every way! (As you know, I'm a dog person.) At least, it does not know this "bounder", thankfully!

Regarding Ray Donovan or pussy, Spike?


I could say I know nothing of Ray Donovan, but that might leave the wrong impression.

Ambiguity is the heart of irony. That said, you are at a distinct linguistic disadvantage here.

I believe this question might best be moved to the Topic: Anything Else Discussions under the thread Anyone Can Be Trained to Hallucinate.
