Going on 2nd week here. Seems all I do is dishes. Tons of freaking dishes.  We've been taking walks a lot. I hope it gets warmer soon so I can start working outside more.  I need to catch up on The Walking Dead and Better Call Saul.  Waiting for Ozark to drop too.  As a family we have been watching the Lego show/competition.  We also watch Survivor together and The Curse of Oak Island.  Spousal unit watches American Idol and The Voice.

hmmm. oak island is our new 'watch together' choice and my better half also likes 'the voice'. but I have worked from home 'forever' so the dish load is just business as usual. I wish i had time to take walks or catch up on some shows.

A few blasts from the past ... perhaps too recondite for some tastes.

 

I should now be in Sicily and so am thankful that this series is being broadcast on the BBC.

Inspector Montalbano.

A crime fiction on my all-time -favourite list for its quintessentially Italian flavour, right from the opening music and sweeping aerial shots.

In Italian with subtitles. Could take  a few episodes to get into the characters.

https://www.amazon.com/s?k=inspector+montalbano&ref=nb_sb_noss_1

I haven't read the books ... but imagine they too are terrific.

Why not learn Italian at the same time?

Tutto bene!

 

For an equally regional English series.

Victorian Kitchen Garden.

A series taking us through the rebuilding of ... guess what.

Ah, looks you can't get it in the USA.

 

This side of the pond I've been watching some childhood sci-fi favourites:

Lost In Space

Time Tunnel

The Invaders a Quinn Martin Production

Wow - I can remember the first episode of Dr. Who ... the first appearance of the Daleks ...

 

 Could be difficult sourcing the material though 😞

 

I'm glad I never found the time to read War and Peace 😉

For Chinese visual splendour I might run through epics like:

 

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

House of Flying Daggers

Red Cliff

Hero

The Wall

 

and similar.

Oh don't get me started on where you "should" be, I had DTM testing cancelled in Hockenheim, Valencia was cancelled and LeMans pushed back, we've been put on Furlough so that now means no work and only 80% pay, which is fine my limit is about 65/70%, however that means redecorating the house, and sooo many other jobs, I'm struggling to find the time to get some gaming in, well, the FD is stopping me from gaming but thats almost the same thing right?

As long as we can go back to work in the estimated 3 weeks I'll be fine, but the back end of this years going to be reaaaaly busy as they're already on abut having double and triple headers, races are going to clash, its gonna get messy..
