I was worried about this. Then I heard about the big storm. That got me more concerned. The eclipse, however, is going to be late. That might help. But, this is just an early heads up. Don’t get your hopes up. You will see a lot about the eclipse on the media, but clouds might be a real problem for us. OK? Sorry.
Watched it (off DVR) tonight and were delighted. Yes, yes, it lives up to expectations. As good as the prior seasons, albeit just based on this very first episode. Gripping subject — the French Revolution across the Channel. We were captivated.
That none of the cast get any older, though about 9-years have passed, since we first met her, is a bit disconcerting, but it is nice to have all the familiar faces about.
Yes, definitely recommended. Try and catch it. PBS will be showing Episode 1 all week.

The ‘New Year 2019’ cakes from a few weeks ago.
These cakes are for a Tamil holiday, ‘Thai Pongal’. It is not one I am familiar with. But, the cakes sure look good. So, I wanted to share them with you. Enjoy.
Oh, in case you are wondering, ‘Thai Pongal’, in 2019, starts on January 15 and goes on for 3 to 4 days. It is a harvest celebration.

The first for 2019 and as far as I recall the first from a McDonald’s. Actually one that we go to fairly often. Never noticed that they have a nice big mirror with very good lighting. Couldn’t resist.
I think it will just about clear the tree line. This is just after 6am. Sunrise is not until ~7:15am. So, plenty of time.
Not for I. I will still be in bed. But, wanted to make sure that you early risers knew of this. Enjoy. Let me know what it was like.

I have been meaning to share this since the start of 2019. Just kept on getting distracted by other stuff. Well, better late than never.
