  1. Hi Dennis! To the best of my knowledge, she hasn’t, but I’m sure one of our experts is going to chime in soon with a definite answer.
  2. If you're a pet owner (or simply worried about wildlife) there's very little to celebrate about them, especially the extra stupid ones that don't produce a light show, just as much of a senseless racket as possible.
  3. I’m reluctant to disagree with a scholar like you, but wasn’t Watson the woman, not Holmes? At least according to Rex Stout. Also, I need to put on the mod hat for a moment and ask that you please take care in using terms like „decline“ when it comes to other people’s interpretations of the canon. This is and has always been an equal opportunity forum when it comes to theories, and if someone reads Sherlock as being in a relationship with whoever, more power to them really. Feel free to disagree but keep the tone respectful, please.
  4. I don’t have any idea about other countries, sorry, but here in Austria series 3 of Vienna Blood is about to be broadcast (on Dec 30 and Jan 2 and 3), so keep an eye out for it. I’m sooooooo looking forward to this.
  5. Word, Herlock - those videos they show on the news look terrifying. I hope you're all safe and everyone, regardless of where, has happy and joyful holidays! 🎄
  6. We're all about unbridled hedonism here, intellectual one of course.
  7. Aptly described and deftly executed in the following post. As for websites, why don't you start with a free WordPress site? You can always upgrade later.
  8. You need to upload it to a hosting site and link from there, this forum doesn't support uploading of photos. Personally, I use Imgur, but any such site will do. Do you need help with the process?
  9. Amish aren’t exactly a good control group, though. After all, pollution and other environmental factors have been linked to autism far more reliably than vaccines (if at all) so the air is more likely to be the culprit here. Besides, I mean I don’t have children but I’d much rather have one on the spectrum than have them die from a preventable disease.
  10. Husband and I watch The Boys. It's certainly ... different. Could do without the level of gore but it definitely keeps surprising me, which I love in any kind of story, so I keep watching.
  11. Welcome to the forum, Tiger! And no, of course you're not too late, au contraire, we're happy that you jumped right in. Back on topic, yeah, highly emotionally charged, that relationship - but I think pride is also an important part of that mix. For both, actually.
  12. That's a hunting dog, and going by those I knew, if an idea takes root in their single-minded brains, there's no stopping them. Saw one squeeze himself into a wicker basket belonging to (and sized for) a cat once just to spite said cat, so yes, I think the pooch above reached his position himself, with determination and patience (and possibly via the countertop to the right).
  13. Vienna's tap water comes from a protected mountain spring area that has been municipal property since imperial times. More info here, please ignore the tourist-y spin: https://www.wien.info/en/sightseeing/green-vienna/viennese-water-364316. And yes, it's protected by the city constitution - we're fiercely proud of our water and when a politician made noises about privatization, it didn't go across too well to put it mildly, and that provision was the result.
  14. Our local tea equivalent would be a Jause, but in Vienna that generally involves cake or pastries (Guglhupf is one popular choice). Sandwiches are more of a late morning / cold or on-the-move lunch item.
  15. Never heard of a cucumber sandwich round here (then again, I was baffled by the fact that apparently there are bitter cucumbers so what do I know) though they are used as vegetable garnishing in other sandwiches (like, ham with radishes and cucumber). Similar with watercress, though I've also seen that one as the main sandwich ingredient, served with a bit of cream cheese.
  16. Are you getting a refund, at least? If they claim something like "it's preferred handling but not guaranteed to be delivered in that time frame" that would be adding insult to injury, imo.
