  1. Happy belated, RuthyOne! Hope it was everything you could wish for.
  2. He had the field and was wide open, not sure why he took the horse so wide out into the course. But it's a good thing Illya didn't stumble badly and take a fall.
  3. I know and you are beyond generous. I was even going so far as to buy snowshoes just for the occasion. But, no....thank you. I am sure Mother Nature will catch us up, in her own sweet way and time.
  4. This is kind...or blatantly....Man From U.N.C.L.E.
  5. The storm hit further into Mass. then anyone thought or had predicted but Maine got nada.
  6. We got a lot of cloud cover and even some high winds and what looked like heavy snow bands out to seaward but not a flake nor flurry to be seen on shore. Nice and sunny here now.
  7. Greetings Alysanne! So glad you found the Forum. Don't worry about your English, as Undead said, it looks good and there are a lot of people here who's mother tongue is not English. You will do fine. You will also find a lot of cross over fandoms. Dr. Who, Lord of the Rings, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. All kinds of madness. It's a lovable chaos.
  8. I like the snow and the new picture. We aren't getting much of any snow in coastal Maine so far. A dusting this morning after I got home from work, but it's all gone now.
  9. Welcome to the Forum, mickey. Sounds like you are going to fit right in. Be safe out there. A lot of would love to travel but hey. Being an armchair explorer has it's charm.
  10. A lot of our Pirate gigs are in the hotter months of Summer. We are told to drink a lot of water and use sun block. I usually buy it, throw it in the back of the car and forget it. But we are usually so covered in layers and long sleeves only our faces are exposed and we are wearing wigs, and or hats so it's not to much of a problem but shade and water is always a welcome plus along with cool breezes. Not much of a follower. I attend an Episcopalian Church, but I also read the scriptures of the Qu'ran and the Sikhs. I also find a wealth of knowledge and spiritual wisdom in the native tribes of the Earth and the Celts so yeah, I believe in a Higher Spirit then mankind. But a Universal power not owned or regulated by one religion, doctrine, dogma or theology.
  11. I know I'm not. At least on an intellectual level. But sometimes i just wish that I wasn't quite so rural and isolated. But being part of an acting company has helped a lot as has being active on the internet and this Forum especially has been a real blessing.
  12. For me, it's being treated as the idiot of the family even though I have been tested to have a very high IQ. I have friends but sometimes I find it difficult to feel a deep connection but I have built walls and as much as I would like to undo some of that I find it hurts less if I leave it in place. I am a people watcher, I like to analyze situations though I have been told that I am very empathetic, I find it difficult to act on it.
  13. Rewatching Sherlock episodes so that I can pick out the correct dollhouse miniatures to recreate the modern 221b.
  14. 99,163 fans who wish they were part of the inner-circle.
  15. 99,191 times has had to grab some important clue from tourists.
  16. Greetings, Sabine, and welcome to the collective of Sherlock 'freaks". (I rather like that) Hope you find lots of topics that spark inspiration to join in. Will enjoy hearing your take on all this. Have fun with it.
  17. 99,200 guesses John makes about who the Skull's true identity.
  18. The theater released a piece today announcing that they are going to try to be more on top of silencing the mobile phones and have watchers around keeping an eye out for people and their electronics. There was even a suggestion that they create a "phone park", before people enter they hand over their electronics to be kept until afterwards. One girl who attended the performance said that she had notices one small sign that asked please no pictures or filming but maybe not every one saw it. The theater was going to make sure announcements would be made before curtain rise. The article also included some snippets when other actors who had stopped in the middle of performances to shout down someone who was being disruptive.
  19. 99,207 times Sherlock complained about a nice quiet night being depressing.
  20. It may not have been postpartum, agreed. But it can set in as soon as three weeks after the birth of a child, or take as long as a year to show up and it can last up to 3 years of more if left untreated, 10 to 15% of those never living so long. And losing two children then being told that she could never bare another.....her mental and emotional state was not in a good place, no matter what kind of depression it was.
  21. Oh he made it clear that he felt responsible and yes, it might have been a natural response. Holmes having as big a heart as he really had. And what happened happened and how Holmes reacted, he felt justified.....I guess it's one of those pelting popcorn at the screen moments. It wasn't your fault, idiot! Get back to work!
  22. i don't see that as his failure. She was suffering from postpartum depression. 10 to 15% of women going through this usually end up as a suicide. Plus, this was England. As a woman she was expected to keep hearth and home and raise a family, children were expected and as a barren woman, she was not fulling her duties as a wife. which would also add to her depression and if her husband was in denial that she was suffering mentally as well emotionally, as he seemed to be, what hope of treatment did she have? That certainly wasn't Sherlock's area of expertise so he is not to blame either.
