    Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas from Ohio USA. No snow, but will be with family today and tomorrow. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.
  2. Well, if I had to take this my only option would be to become a scullery maid. http://spectrum.columbiaspectator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/harvardexam.pdf

    Spartacus: Vengeance

    But I told them I was born in 1930! That ought to be old enough.

    Spartacus: Vengeance

    Why do I have to submit my birth date before I can view the video? I even made up a fake one and still couldn't watch.
  6. I'm still amazed at the quality of the glass making. The bottle looks modern. Where exactly is the seal? at the top of the neck? I don't see it. Very interesting, thanks for posting.

    What's the last thing you saw/heard/played etc. ?

    "I, Claudius" on Utube. Still one of the best shows ever. Stellar acting and story telling, even tho most of it is just a "story"; but great none the less. John Hurt as Caligula, "You don't want to go in there". Messalina, "Not my head!not my head!"

    Movies set in ancient Rome (Complete List)

    For those interested, "I, Claudius" is on Utube, uploaded in 2008; somehow I never found it until now. I've been watching the last several evenings and am up to Episode 5. Like many others I watched it when it was first broadcast. What a great show it is, the acting so good. I don't know how to post a link with the web address without including the file, but if you type in the words I Claudius on Utube you should find all the episodes.

    What's the last book you read?

    A change of pace. I just finished, "Not in Front of the Servants" - 1973 By Frank Dawes "Whole armies of butlers, cooks and housemaids were employed in the great households of Victorian and Edwardian England. This book is a nostalgic study of this vanished world, recreated through interviews, memoirs and letters". Now I'm reading, "Autobiographies of Working People from the 1820

    I forgot to mention that the movie "Dacii" has a brief scene showing the decimation of the Rhine Legion. I've read about it in books, but this is the first time I saw it in a film.

    The Last Days of Pompeii - 1984

    Here you go Ghost. I'm not sure how to post a link without the actual Utube file appearing. Not sure moderators approve of it. This is Episode One/Part One of 10. There are three episodes which makes the series quite long but I enjoyed it over several evenings. It was originally a made for tv series. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=402HMRAs9nA After watching this first 15min, I had to laugh again at the chimpanzee in the religious procession. What? Couldn't they find a baboon who would ride in that chair? Also wanted to add that I have "Constantine and The Cross" bookmarked to start watching next.

    The Last Days of Pompeii - 1984

    Just finished watching this television mini series from 1984 online. Not too bad. Was anxious to get to the episodes featuring the eruption to see how that was handled. Again, not too shabby. I did begin to wonder if the only dogs in Pompeii were Border Collies, but then near the end there was a German Shepherd down and being covered in ash - not something spastic Border Collies would lay still long enough for I'm sure.

    From Decimus Caesar's list, I chose "Dacii" and found it online. Just finished watching it, and I must say it was entertaining, altho had to watch with subtitles. I never did figure out what language it was. Also, I never saw such a variety of costumes in such patterns and colors. Some of the plumes on the helmets were sensational! Oh, and if you thought the rain dance in Chelsmford 123 was great, wait until you see the one in this film. But, all kidding aside, I cared enough for the characters to watch the whole thing. And the battle scenes were not too shabby. Here's the link to Part One, the Utube version. Part two can be found there also. Let me know which country made this film. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nox6JfDG81E

    The Viking Queen

    Saw a little bit of this movie on TV last night - while watching the scene during the opening credits with the two guys in the chariot racing across the terrain, all I could say is YIKES! how did they keep from falling out of that thing! I've driven a horse and carriage, and let me tell you whoever did that stunt had to have guts! By the looks of this trailer, I missed the best parts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDjyP4N6Quw

    The Viking Queen

    Do it, Ghost, do it! You know you want to. It was on Turner's Movie Classics channel over here and probably will be repeated at some point.

    The Viking Queen

    I tried to find the clip, but instead found a later scene of TVQ and the Roman racing chariots which wasn't too bad. Going back to that opening scene, I read this: Crew or equipment visible: Production equipment clearly visible at end of opening scene, when Tristram (Patrick Troughton) rides away from Romans in chariot. Look for a light blue cloth covering a cart of white and stainless steel objects, perhaps the film crew's lunch wagon, just as the chariot turns away. The more I read and look at video clips, the more I think I should have watched this film.

    The Viking Queen

    I really wish you could see the opening scene I mentioned (as the credits roll - not the one in the trailer), it's totally insane. Makes the chariot race in Ben Hur seem tame.
