Finally, Downton Abbey III

Me too!

Downton Abbey Season III, is off to a wonderful start. Last nights premiere (finally shown in America) did not disappoint. I have waited and counted down the days, only to find out my third of six cooking class was changed to the evening of January 6th. What? No Way! (more on cooking class later!) Of course I DVR'ed D.A. and stayed up until 2:30am watching every detail. 

For those of you newcomers to the show - you must start with Season I and II to get caught up with characters and their history. 
You can go to YouTube and see every episode for free of as inexpensive as $1.99. (Do not pay more)
You can also rent on Netflix, Redbox and probably other outlets. 

I adore the protocol that goes along with the British traditions. 
Mary, my favorite character is all about making sure the English traditions are not left behind.
While her maternal Grandma-ma (Shirley McLaine) just arrived from progressive America and encourages cultural change. (Ms. McLaine you are a fabulous actress)

Don't forget to set your DVR for next week's show PBS on Sunday evening. You can also skip ahead and buy the entire Season III online. Season III has been aired already in Britain in the fall.
For more on English culture and traditions - here are two sites for a quick lesson.

Day #2 of 365

Today is Day #2 of 365 ... break your own personal best records for accomplishment. No one can be a better you than YOU. Be "You" WELL!

Most of us get excited when we read about super-human achievements, but something that is much more important is when we break our own personal best records for accomplishments.  Achieving better grades, a better work record, a better record of “being nice,” and a host of other records will make you a better person in the most important game of all – the game of life.  ~Zig Ziglar

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you!  

Yesterday was #365 and we started all over today with #1. Last year rolled by fast - I hope you are ready to roll with me again this year. Let's do it together - getting Socially Savvy and being the best we can be - one day at a time.
