Thanks folks! I just added it to my Instant Queue on Netflix.

Apparently, it has 7 episodes. I found no reference to there being any ongoing seasons of the show.


"Exposing the snobbery, backbiting and machinations of a disappearing class system, this seven-part British series chronicles the comings and goings of the upper-crust Crawley family and their assorted servants. Ensconced in their stately manor, the Crawleys delight in their aristocratic life -- until the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912 muddles their line of inheritance. Maggie Smith plays the sneering Dowager Countess of Grantham."

Season 2 continues into the war years. It's aired in the UK already, and I think it comes to the US in January... not positive about that.

How cool is that? Thank you for that information, Sharon, I read your first post and just forgot that you'd already said that.

My mind is getting dim.

Does anyone have a cure for the flu? I think that's what I've got. I'm all achy, etc. It seems like I had this a couple months ago. Things are still getting done, just at a slower pace.

Yes, I have one that works every time: Drink plenty of fluids, eat lots of broths and cooked veggies and sleep about 20 hours a day until you're over it!

Other than that, I think you're stuck with it for awhile. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well.

Get well soon!

sorry you're feeling bad, vb, but i doubt it's the flu you've got--NOTHING would be getting done if it were. spoon in some hot chicken broth sprinkled w/dill weed....feel better!

Thanks Timothy and vit! I wish I had all the stuff to make that cauliflower soup I posted. That sure would taste good.

Nothing to be done but rest and fluids unfortunately. If you have chest involvement do not hesitate to see the Dr. Its important!
