Sitting here listening to the Stagecoach Country Music Festival that's on AXS.tv on Dish network. Rodney Atkins on now, Phil Vassar was on earlier. Also have some squash and onions roasting in the oven and will have them along with some leftover shrimp for supper.

Earlier I finished watching the Vikings marathon. The season finale is on later tonight. Too late IMO, but I'll try to stay up.
Now I'm watching a Military Channel show on snipers.
And eating brownies.

Here's a pic of part of the new fence. I'm so excited!
Your fence looks great GG

Keep up the good work!

I am heading out later this morning, hitting the shops to get some bits and pieces

Then just some relaxation this afternoon...lovely day to curl up on the recliner with my kindle as I have just started Marco Pierre White's The Devil in the Kitchen: Sex, Pain, Madness, and the Making of a Great Chef...loving it!

They're pretty good brownies, Kylie. They even have walnuts on them.
The only problem is I should have automatically bought another qt of milk. If I don't stop drinking milk with them I won't have any for my morning coffee.

Pac, I love the brownies with walnuts YUM!!

Sounds like you are getting a lot of calcium there too, good to hear!

Hope you have enough left for the morning though, very important that first coffee!

hearing a number of dcers mention the vikings series, (and not having access to game of thrones) i found it on hulu plus, and decided to watch a few episodes. here's the thing, you know what is the opposite of 'blood lust'? well, that's me, the opposite of blood lust. i don't enjoy watching battle scenes, swords and shields and hand-to-hand combat, horses getting hurt....

so, the rest of my critique, if you choose to read it, should come as no big surprise either. the accents. in attempting to sound like norse men (and women) about the best most of the actors seem able to manage is an imitation of english (british) accent with a mouth full of marbles, and a hint of a lisp tacked onto that. very irritating and difficult to ignore for a steady 3/4 hour.

then too, i like well developed characters and good dialogue. i prefer a meaningful story line to a series of fierce and bloody action scenes, with little evident purpose beyond aggression, lust and greed.

despite its flaws, i think the vikings does have its scenes and its memorable moments. there is some good acting here, apart from the phony accents. the writing, with its occasional authentic historical feel, and a few realistic scenes that come across as real and relatable, i believe shows potential to develop into a decent series..

i'm easy. i give vikings a C.:)
