My good wishes to everyone for health and warmth.
Can't seem to find an outlet that has the episodes streaming at no charge. I did get some "flavor" of the series by watching clips on YouTube. I know I would love it! No problem with the dialects - that is actually one of my interests (linguistics).

I am still looking around to see if I can get caught up on past episodes.

Did you try PBS on line? I know they have other British TV. Also, for about $3/mo(at least that was what it was a year ago), you could stream from BBC.

I shared this on my FB page. Thank you for posting it! I read the credits and it was filmed in the area where we spent time in Hawai'i - watching Humpback whales and dolphins. It is an area well-known on the Big Island for whales, as they feed there and migrate to the area (I was told) to birth. We sat on the balcony and watched dolphins and whales in the early mornings and evenings.

I love dolphins!! There are so smart and gentle. I have a necklace with a dolphin on it and I wear it on my road trips - my good luck charm. Call it whatever but I believe that dolphin gets me there and back.

We went out on a boat and whale watched - got some good shots. It was either off Waikiki or Maui.

I saw something this past week . . . wish I could find it now. It was some statement about the intelligence level of sea mammals and what they would tell us (about humanity) if they could speak to us (or we could understand their language fully).

I thought - yes - that would be interesting to hear, seeing as how we have too often throughout history been very cruel to so many of them.

Your dolphin is your totem!

Dolphins are wonderful but why are pigs so neglected and abused? They're as smart as dogs as well as being affectionate and friendly. They make great inside pets who have no trouble with house training.

After five days of light snow I have a total of about 18". That's fine as we always need moisture here but this morning my back door was frozen shut. I heated some water to boiling and did my best to flood the bottom. I wrenched the door open as the boiling water evaporated but now have another problem; I can't shut the door. It's a good inch from the place it needs to be. My younger dog is now afraid to go out. I haven't let my older one out in two days so he's had to go on the floor which he's willing to do. But the little one, after a very prolonged house training, has become an example of virtue and I want her to relieve herself.

I've had more snow in the past two weeks than I had all of last year. There's more snow predicted later in the week. This is a near desert area.

that is why I do not eat Pork. Pigs are intelligent, sensient, animals who have all sorts of attributes. They make good guard 'dogs' and are very protective of those they care about.

I wouldn't eat dolphins or dogs, so I choose not to eat pigs for the same reason.

But that does make it hard with menu planning have to admit.

And good luck with your frozen door.

Chickens and steer, as well as fish, are smart too.

HIW, do you have a hair dryer or a heat gun?

I hope you have those pee pads for the babies.

anifani, I looked around for a way to watch Last Tango in Halifax online and I can't find anything either unless you pay. YouTube has the episodes --somehow you pay to watch them.

A balmy 30 here today. Our weather usually comes from the westward direction and I hope Wyoming door-freezing temps are not coming this way.
