One fantastic Video ! It is fiction, but great movie.

This is a much longer video of the story of the dog and the dolphin. Great show.

I don't really care for the Big Bang Theory show. It just doesn't grab me as being funny.

Loved Ludy, Carol Burnett and the Golden Girls. Loved the shows like Ed Sullivan with his great guests and such variety. We used to have some good Canadian variety shows too, once upon a time.

I also watched Land & Sea. So sad indeed when men are doing what they know so well, their livelihood. The part that is so sad is they thought they were coming in a timely fashion. My husband also makes his living upon the sea, when the helicopter went down off NFLD, he was supposed to fly that day.Tension in our family was bad that day, but we mourn the crew that lost their lives as they were family. Documentaries are sometimes real close to home.

The show Big Bang Theory seems to have some promise.  To me, there has not been a good comedy on TV since I Love Lucy, Carol Burnett Show, The Archie Bunker comedy and Golden Girls.  Maybe I have poor taste now.

My daughter just got me watching The Big Bang Theory!  It's funny on so many levels.

I like The Good Wife, and Doc Zone (documentaries) too.

Just watching The Fifth Estate and the program is on the horror stories of our Atlantic Search & Rescue that can take hours for a helicopter to get off the ground to rescue what is left of a terrible tragedy at sea. It is terrible watching this program and how needless it was for people to die because nobody got there.

The Newfoundland fisherman are really on their own when they get in trouble. There was no helicopter available for that terrible helicopter accident in 2009 when all but one died. It is shocking.

I am so sick of the singing and dancing shows for the best Canadian and American singers and dancers with their shrieking, screaming audiences. Is there no good programs on TV any more? CSIs and the best of.... The only new one on the channels I get is the PanAm Stewardesses. Looks a bit different.

Have you watched the new show this fall on the flight Stewardesses?

Gary; Like your humour. This may or may not be true but is what I was told then. When a General Pachen, captured by Indians, arrived at the junction of 3 rivers (Cohocton, Tioga, and Canisteo), he saw a weathered hewn post. On the post were 28 figures in red depicting captives and 30 headless figures in red, obviously depicting dead men. There are different stories, one being Painted Post was erected over the grave of a chief who was wounded in battle and brought in a canoe there, where he died. Another local one was early settlers were tied to the post and killed and the post drenched in their blood appeared to be painted.  Odd we consider this a "pretty" name for a street in new home developments here.
