This is ME my picture! And the BBC

Some people have asked me for another picture of here it is ME!

A portrait for Thursday!

So what have I been doing?

*Pulling my hair out trying to make polymer clay canes and wanting to scream! I am determined NOT to buy them, but making fruit canes is very difficult. So I'm just not sure what I will do. Try as I may quite hard my oranges and lemons have failed. Very discouraging

* Have gained a few pounds and just went to weight Watchers today It's a a real wake up call when you see how it works the amounts of food and how a person loses weight. I cant wait to eat all the right things again.


* Have been watching Poldark a wonderful BBC series set in Cornwall a few hundred years ago. The story is of the Poldarks. Ross and Demelza above their lives intertwined with smuggling, hardships, mining and intrique. The series reminds me of Daphne du Maurier who wrote of old Cornwall and some of her books were very well written and researched. If you are inclined to some swashbuckling and times of long ago ships etc. you may like these books. Daphne du Maurier wrote "Frenchman's Creek" "Rebbecca" "The Loving Spirit" and "The House on the Stand" was especially a great read.

* Some insight from the movie series Poldark..

Poldark a British Historical Drama
Poldark is one of the most successful British television dramas of all time. The popularity of the first series in 1975 was matched by enthusiastic reception of the 1993 video release. As a costume drama, scheduled for early evening family viewing Poldark was not unusual, but its exterior sequences, cast and immense popularity have made it ultimately memorable. The first episode, opening to Ross Poldark's ride across the Cornish landscape on his return from the American War of Independence, was seen by an audience of five million. As the series continued this figure rose to an average of fifteen million viewers. The two BBC Poldark series have been sold to over forty countries and ten years later a third series is being made by HTV.
All three of the Poldark series are closely based on the novels of Winston Graham, well known for his thrillers and for the screen adaptations of his later non-historical books, e.g. the Hitchcock directedMarnie (1964) and the British film noirFortune is a Woman (1956). In 1969 Associated British Picture bought an option on the Poldark best-sellers and commissioned a four-hour Cornish Gone with the Wind. However, the film project was dropped during the EMI take-over of the company. The option was taken over by London films who eventually collaborated with the BBC.

Thats about it...

Have a great day!


Lovely picture of you <3


Love your smile!!! Great photo!


Aw, now look at you Janet! I agree, fantastic are quite photogenic, my dear. :-) Love that cloud photo...oh to see a heart cloud like that! Will be in touch...


Maybe a few more tries and you will have the canes down! Blessings.


Beautiful photo!
My post has a heart cloud too!


What a lovely photo, I really like it. :)

As creative as you are, I'm sure you'll be making those canes before long. If everything new came easily to us, I don't think we would derive as much satisfaction once we finally achieved our goals.

The BBC series sounds fascinating too.


You guys are so nice. I always really appreciate your kind comments!

No I am not photogenic lol. Its ok Cindy..when you can is fine.

Love seeing your photo, Janet! You look great!

I remember watching Poldark when it aired on PBS. I loved it and I had a crush on the leading man.



That's a great photo!

I love BBC but I tend to gravitate to "Are You Being Served" and "Keeping Up Appearances"!


Claudia you know Ross wasnt really good looking but by the time you were getting into the movie he was!
