The Options Available . . .

One of my Facebook friends posted that she and her wife were considering different plans for Valentine's Day -- dinner out? dinner and a movie? Fancy restaurant? View and Brew? They decided to go with picking up a pizza locally, taking it home, and watching Netflix in their jammies.

I had to laugh -- something like that's our usual choice for celebrations. Tonight we're fixing a Surf 'n Turf -- filet mignons and crab cakes, along with stuffed baked potatoes and green beans and salad. With expresso chip ice cream for dessert. Quick, easy, and indulgent. And we'll be watching Netflix too -- probably MidSomer Murders - a series we've just gotten into. All that gorgeous English countryside and amazing character actors!

A little bubbly and the spicy scent of the Stargazer lilies that were an early Valentine present from John -- how could it be better?

Hoping that you treat yourself to something special!

Midsommer is a lot of fun, and you can binge for many hours if you wish.

We have been bingeing on acorn tv (British shows). We've watched Rebus, McCallum and, now, Touching Evil. We've picked these series because they will be gone at the end on this month. We have subscribed via Roku.

Meanwhile, we had family and pizza last night, and Sue and I will head out to breakfast in a bit. Sha also brought in coffee and muffins this morning.

Your meal sounds lovely and then watching Netflix will be nice. We don’t have Netflix, just a small TV. Jim used to give me dark chocolate for Valentine, but that was several years ago. Now he has forgotten holidays (and my name…) the only thing I’ll be looking toward this evening will be to read the two books by my bedside: “The Geography of Nowhere – the rise and decline of America’s man-made landscape” by James Howard Kunstler and “Being Mortal – Medicine and What Matters in the End” by Atul Gawande – both very interesting for sober subjects.

We love Midsomer. The only problem is the towns are so small and they usually have a big bunch of murders that we wonder over time if any one will be left to kill. Just kidding.

My favorite of all the PBS mysteries is INSPECTOR MORRIS. John Thaw played the lead and he was wonderful. A brooding curmudgeon who finds his criminal by superior intellect. Loves classical music.

ENDEAVOR is the young Morris just starting out. Wonderful actor portraying with the same brooding manner that really is splendid.

I could go on and on about our love of so many fine detective series on PBS
