Breaking Bad is a very good series very original. It is gritty and surreal with a good dose of comedy and tragedy in the mix. I haven't seen Better Call Saul yet but it should be an interesting spinoff of a character that developed within the Breaking Bad series. I'll binge watch it one of these days. Game of Thrones is pretty cool well written with several simultaneous story lines intersecting. I watched the first season of Walking Dead but lost interest. There's too many situations not well thought through but I suppose shows and movies take liberties. Watched the first season of Sopranos and one day I would like to watch the entire series. Especially interested in the Episodes that Steve Buscemi directed. There's one about the Pine Barron's which I have never been to but read about in a book called The Tracker. I enjoy looking for tracks out walking the dog or out on adventures in the woods. Amazing the detail that can be learned from something most people don't even notice.

Hi Gardener,

I am loving BB as much this time around as the first. I missed some things in the first (also, I knit when I watch so my attention is sometimes divided) but wow, what a great series. When it was over, I went into BB withdrawal, lol. We are going to watch The Sopranos next, as I've heard that it too is excellent (though maybe not quite as good as BB). Have you seen Oz? Excellent show, very heavy, but excellent. We also tried The Wire, and I couldn't get into it. There's a new one out called Narcos that's supposed to be good, and we watched the first season of Ozark, and it was pretty good, too.

Martine, if I can ever help you with knitting, let me know . . .

Why was the photography place so depressing? You were so good at photography. Do they not have other classes, or have you lost interest?

Have not seen those other shows I don't have cable or satellite. I usually just watch broadcast television but sometimes I stop by a friend's house that records stuff and people have loaned me DVD's that I have watched. I usually like shows on Discovery, History, or learning channels. PBS has some good stuff also. One of my favorite movies or whatever is a PBS documentary called Alone in the Wilderness about Richard Preneke and the cabin he built in Alaska. His carpentry skills and use of hand tools is amazing. I like Forged in Fire also. Some of the shows seem scripted and I lose interest but if I can learn something or go out and try it I like it. I get ideas from shows like The Woodright Shop as well. Any gardening shows catch my interest and some cooking shows. I need a lot more practice cooking I don't have the timing down and sometimes use too much spice. I can't do everything I guess but I always give new tasks a try. Some tasks I kind of wish I never tried like playing the guitar. Learning to play every song I like sometimes takes the mysticism out of it especially if it is easy.

Oh, thank you, Michele. I knit, but eh how shall I put it, I do it my way [smile] [smile]. I could use a little help every now and then.


So, one day not so long ago I decided to take these evening classes. I headed to the school together with Bono to register and could not find the entrance. That is not an unusual thing for me, so I walked around a little, observed my surroundings and saw teenagers leaving the building. Oh My God. I did not know the building was still functioning as a school for young people. It is impossible, I still cannot believe it. I thought it was only used for adult evening education, because it looks horrible, like it is going to fall apart down on your head when you walk in; the colors, the walls, everything, it is like an abandoned place. Going to school there is no option.  Sorry.
As far as I know there were/are plans to demolish the site and turn it into a luxurious, modern living project. Well, it is time.

I am still interested, I will just have to find another way to do it. At the moment the books I bought can offer some guidance. I do not feel like driving back and forth to Bruges each time, but I will probably have to. The lessons there are far more expensive. My irregular working schedule does not simplify things. Anyway, I will have to look into it.
