Princess Victoria at 4. She was always SHORT and very conscious of that.


She was quite the lady and Queen. Definitely changed the course and complexion of British history and culture.

I learned a LOT about her watching the PBS Classic “Young Victoria“. There is also a movie of that same title I would like to see.

198 years ago. That seems like a long time ago.

Symbolic, encouraging and hopefully, with a TON of luck, a harbinger of things to come.

What is most significant is that is BLOOD RED Wolfeboro — where Mittens Romney has one of his many mansions (and a few of his many wives).

Trump won Wolfeboro by a 7% margin. It is one the REDDEST towns in New Hampshire.

This win make NO difference at the NH House. The Democrats lost a seat in Hillsborough County and the GOP margin in NH is HUGE.

But, a small victory for us.

PBS Masterpiece “Dark Angel” With “Downton Abbey” ‘Annie’ Is Quite Compelling — Though Disturbing.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access PBS’ Homepage for this show.



It aired on Sunday, BUT I am sure you can still find it on reruns on PBS or definitely online.

Compelling, period-piece story. The sheer quantity of deaths, especially of children, is a downer.

But, Annie makes up for it and it is kind of funny and strange to see her wantonly fornicating.

Definitely worth watching. Just one episode from what I can tell. I still have it on my DVR.
