  1. I liked last night's movie - although I've already forgotten the name - Christmas Inn perhaps? Rachel Boston was the female lead Anyway - the reason I enjoyed it: No dead bodies - no young widow/widower coping on his/her own No divorced or abandoned spouses coping on his/her own No too cute, too young children actively engaged & loving the soon-to-be new stepparent No silly misunderstanding that is solved in the final 10 minutes of the movie - even the generations old family feud seemed more of a friendly annoyance than a real fight
  2. First an admission - I know nothing about sailing, boats, being the captain or crew on a vessel, etc. Now the question - Why didn't the owners, captain take the boat out for a shake-down cruise before opening night? They seemed to indicate that the chef (& perhaps the servers) hadn't cooked on a moving boat - wouldn't you make sure all parts were in working order before allowing your passengers on board? Too expensive to do that? These are the silly questions that go through my mind when watching many of the Hallmark movies! Why didn't they & then fill in the blank for what s
  3. My favorite part of last night's show: Grace is in bed at the university - roomie says get up, we have to go - Grace gets out of bed wearing the clothes she slept in, no bathroom, no face washing, no teeth brushing & off they go - yeah, sure, just like a typical teenage girl Nitpicking I know but can't they at least make some of this drivel more realistic?
  4. The bakers have to know ahead of time what the challenge will be so they can have all the ingredients on hand - but don't they have enough time to practice the challenge? On that British baking show you hear the judges & contestants talking about practicing with the baking, the construction, etc. before the competition The cakes & dessert plates they showed as the competitors were introduced were stunning - the cakes last night didn't match up to that quality - does that mean the ones done in their shops & restaurants take longer than 6 hours to create? (not a criticism -
  5. Has Nutmeg ever said what she thinks should happen to the children of the women who bear them instead of having an abortion? Adoption? How many has Nutmeg adopted? How many of these women has she personally assisted with child care, sick care duties, clothing allowances, etc.?
  6. I was really hoping that perhaps Deja had misunderstood the directions for the writing assignment - maybe the teacher had told the class that some of their work would be published, maybe that info was written on the assignment sheet & Deja forgot or lost the instructions - anything so that Randall didn't get to, once again, be all speechy & self-righteous - then he gets to do it all over at home suggesting that Beth needs to rethink her new job - something they both should have done before he started that ridiculous campaign
  7. With so much rambling, screeching going on I find that I only catch bits & pieces of conversations - what point was Abby trying to make with Castro regarding the cost of health care? She said something about the people in Scranton telling her this but the way she said it - it sounded like those voters wanted a change - maybe she was referring to another Scranton but the one in Lackawanna County in Pa. voted for Clinton - one of the few counties in Pa. that stayed Democratic
  8. Kiss at Midnight was pleasant enough & it was one of the few movies where no one was abandoned by a parent, was divorced or was dead - has anyone counted up the young & dead over a holiday season? Good grief - its as though a Hallmark character has to have a "tragedy" in their past to have a happy ending - I much prefer the movies where none of the above is part of the story - of course, at this point, all these movies have run together & I can't keep any of them straight!
  9. It's difficult trying to follow anything going on with all the rambling & yelling - but - do I have this right? Al Gore & Leo D. are doing some anti-environmental things - the US is going to meet the emission standards set by the Paris Accord - therefore we can all relax & stop worrying about climate change, clean air, clean water, fossil fuel damage? Is that what MM was advocating/preaching/screeching? I can't shake my head hard enough!!
  10. Scaled was an interesting program - I wish they would give an indication as to the type of finances (& hours) needed to house, feed, get medical care of all those exotics - the woman profiled last week had a huge number of enclosures & wanted an even bigger one for her favorite critter - & then the basic question of how often do these enclosures need to be cleaned?
  11. Yes - who are these people?! Of course there are many chefs/cooks whom I didn't know when their shows first came on - some ended up being favorites (Sara Moulten) others not so much (The Kitchen group)
  12. The pretzel chocolate bread pudding from the other night looked pretty good The sisters really are characters - it's what keeps me coming back!
  13. I watched a few minutes of that Let's Eat show - way too cutesy & loud How about the show on PBS Create - The Food Flirts - somehow their cuteness doesn't bother me & I think they're rather amusing - it's the same premise every show so I'm not sure how many of them I'll watch but they're good for a 9 p.m. chuckle
  14. Question regarding the contestants knowledge of challenge prior to the actual challenge - apologies if this already been discussed How long ahead of time are they given the info as to what will be required? They must have time to decide on their recipes, ingredients have to be purchased, etc. Last night's winner had never made that dessert & yet in 3 hours time she managed to out-do all the other contestants - beginner's luck? Good for her Marcella & Jason seem (to me) to be trying too hard with their comments to prove they belong as judges on a baking competition show
