An assessment that continues to ring true today, especially with a divisive hatemonger and cretin leading this country, so it’s good to be reminded by former President Obama in his speech yesterday that “[we’ve] got to embrace the longer and more optimistic view of history…” in spite of “a politics that threatens to turn good people away from the kind of collective action that has always driven human progress.”


Bizarre and dismaying to be hearing about my home turf in Irish news reports.

Grateful to have been taking in the views from Mount Brandon instead of sidestepping violent, murderous neo-Nazis invading my town with their sick and twisted reasoning.

Only one correct answer to this question:

Milner gets it right, unlike the craven, despicable man occupying the White House right now.


Robert Hardy as Henry Beaumont in The German Woman


But that has nothing to do with Greta. Nobody in their right mind could possibly imagine… What I’m trying to say is that if anybody has a grudge against Greta, they- they simply don’t know her. Greta never had any time for Hitler or the Nazis or…










Henry Beaumont’s lying, and Foyle knows it.

Commemorating the passing of yet another one of the distinguished actors who guest starred opposite Michael Kitchen on Foyle’s War.


At the alarming rate that far-right judges are being appointed to lower-court benches, it won’t be long before we lose a vital bastion against Trumpism.

From The New Yorker:

McConnell didn’t just protect a Supreme Court seat for the next President; he basically shut down the entire confirmation process for all of Obama’s federal-judgeship nominees for more than a year. It’s the vacancies that accumulated during this time — more than a hundred of them — that Trump’s team is now working efficiently to fill.

McC now has the unmitigated gall to accuse Democrats of obstructionism?!





Dunkirk was spectacular and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout, but at a fraction of the budget and scale, the treatment of the momentous event in Foyle’s War was no less affecting, if not more…


Is it too much to ask that the POTUS possess none of the disturbing character traits exhibited in these Michael Kitchen portrayals…



and more of the qualities found in Michael Faraday and Christopher Foyle?











Foyle pays another visit to Joyce Corrigan to deliver bad news about her son.

Enjoyed watching Emma Fielding last night playing a considerably larger part, Miss Galindo, a character as outspoken and right-minded as Foyle.


Latest study finds that several cups of coffee
each day is good for one’s health.



The letter Annie Lennox received reminds me of Michael Kitchen’s infamous coffee shop encounter that was so amusingly recounted by Honeysuckle Weeks for the Daily Mail:




Messing about with the photographic files in the archive. What I do on a daily basis with little risk of detection.


A Foyle’s War birthday cake! Looks too good to eat.









The silent exchange between Foyle and Andrew speaks volumes about the closeness of their relationship.












“Dad. It’s good to see you.”

Exceedingly good to see Michael Kitchen play Dad to Julian Ovenden’s Andrew Foyle.


Another fool in Foyle’s midst.



In her first credited role, Emily Blunt got to act opposite Michael Kitchen and wear a nifty beekeeper’s outfit. Amazing that the real experts in beekeeping require little in the way of protective wear, even when dealing with a swarm of 40,000 bees.



“I was injured in the First War – not very badly – but I was young, alone, frightened. She was a volunteer nurse.”



“I can tell you that she was desperately unhappy with the life she was leading – at her happiest when he was away – but chose to pursue that life for the sake of the child she was carrying.”

Foyle reveals his love affair with Caroline Devereaux to her son. ***




Much of France has something else to celebrate today.


“Situation in which opposed parties maintain a tense, contentious relationship.”

Seems to be the case more often than not these days.





With news of the new spending bill, my day is going a lot better than Foyle’s.


Nice overhead shot of Foyle/Michael Kitchen seated with an open leg cross, a departure from his customary leg cross:

How should men cross their legs? The J Norman Post lifestyle guide answered the question — back when the POTUS was a man of respect and a model of propriety befitting the office he was holding.

Michael Kitchen will be filming scenes in a caravan again if Rhys Thomas gets his wish.
