I think I've seen that Vituata.

A harsh reminder to mind ourselves carefully when travelling abroad.

Still, even on our best behaviour its possible to find ourselves caught up in something.

Does anyone ever catch or watch "the World's Dumbest...." Why is it that most of the stupid people are men? Very rarely do you see a woman doing something stupid.

Tonight I watch Call The Midwife, then Masterpiece Classic and wanted to watch the new show on PBS. But I got sidetracked with problems on my computer. Call The Midwife was so painful to watch tonight. It was about a woman giving birth to a baby with spina bifida. Unfortunately in my lifetime I have seen three babies born with that.

Could it be that men by their nature are likely to take risks and push the edge?

My guess is it's because watching something so commonplace just doesn't make for entertaining TV. Who wants to watch something they see everytime they step out the door or visit Walmart?

Funny you should ask, Pac. Last night there was a program on Discovery Channel about the Watergate break-in -- Robert Redford was in charge, I believe -- with reporter Bob Woodward, to rehash and pursue something or other about it. When the time came, and maybe it has to do with finishing a harrowing week or maybe it was having lived through the Nixon years, I watched Hee Haw instead. Sensory overload.

Dang, Hee Haw was on? And I wasted my time watching that Watergate special
BTW, does RR strike anyone else as a bit odd? He did not age well and that messed up red hair just doesn't agree with me. Maybe that's because I watched him in Jeremiah Johnson earlier in the day. I guess I like his characters better. Dustin Hoffman seemed like a normal guy. RR a bit of an eccentric. At least IMO.

Are you trying to say the safest place in my house is in front of the sink?
