    I really enjoy seeing these pictures. Until I get to take my own tour of Summerwine history, they are perfect.

    I Didn't Know You Cared revisited

    I Didn't think I cared!!!!! When I watched the first episode, I wasn't sure I cared. Then I watched episode 2 and ended up buying the whole series. It is now one of my favorites. As far as British comedies go, my world has really opened up since I bought my second multiregion dvd player. I can...

    Cold and Ice

    19 here in Des Moines but going down to 9 again as the day goes on. 5 inches of snow on the ground and you could probably stand on any pond you wanted to. The sun is shining and that makes the cold a little more bearable. Last night our PBS station showed the A Chaise Longue to Far, one of the...

    Happy Birthday, Pearl

    Happy Birthday Pearl If my math is any good at all, you are just a baby!!! But I firmly believe that having a birthday (no matter what the age) is much better than the alternative. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    Tinkers Monument.

    Tinker's Monument Thank you for sharing the terrific photos, they were just like some of the scenes I'm familiar with. I just wish that Foggy, Clegg and Compo were still in the shots.

    Odd Man Out

    I just received the only series of this Britcom which stars John Inman of Are You Being Served fame and Josephine Tewson (Keeping up Appearances). I have only had time to watch one episode but it was very funny. I finally finished the I Didn't Know You Cared shows. I'm still not completely...

    Hello from NC

    Iowa PBS All of you Yanks should move to Iowa. Our PBS broadcasts LOTSW every Saturday night and then repeats it on Tuesday evening at 10:30 pm. If that doesn't work for you, come by my house. I have the entire series on DVD as well as a goodly number of other Britcoms. Did I say my wife of 51...

    I Didn't Know You Cared

    Recently finished watching an old series with the above title that was billed on You Tube as like LOTSW. It did have John Comer(Sid) in it but in my mind that was as far as it went. I'm pretty sure it was a Yorkshire based comedy, a little dark, but I did enjoy watching it. You might take a...

    UK Weather

    It's great here in old Des Moines with our temps near the 100 degree mark. School has started, so now they let the kids early : our college football season gets started this weekend with the same high temperatures. Can't be anything much more fun that being suited up in all that heavy equipment...

    About me

    I was very saddened to see LOTSW come to an end. I have been reading all of your comments with much appreciation. In a way, it is kind of like life itself, it does come to an end. Then we have to rely on our memories and in this case our dvd's and certainly forums like this. We all knew the...
