The tree is up, the lights are on and outside, it's snowing steadily. We're in the middle of a winter storm, complete with high winds that could bring us up to a foot of the white stuff. We may already have that. The roads are a mess and I'm worried - I have loved ones who are out today and all I really want is for them to get home safely.
I'm drinking Queen Elizabeth blend today; it's a mild-mannered black tea with unfailing good manners - good for a day when calmness is needed.
Last night, we finished watching The Prisoner. Let me give a little advice: never watch four episodes of The Prisoner in one sitting. Yikes! It's often said the first seven episodes are the best but there's a lot to be said for the last three. For one thing, it's definitely ... imaginative ... To keep a tea-theme going, there's a memorable scene of Patrick McGoohan carrying a tea tray in a windowed trailer speeding down one of Britain's motorways, and the people in the passing vehicles doing double-takes.
Yeah, my kinda series!
