Over the last several days, we watched a couple of movies via Netflix discs. First was Doc Martin, about a British doctor whose life was falling apart, and what he found in a small Cornish fishing village. The other was The Social Network, a disc we've sat on for too long, which was a very good piece of work that dramatizes the history of Facebook. Both very watchable.

Yesterday we purchased the materials and constructed a taller, skinnier raised bed for the vegetable garden. Apparently, there's already seedlings to go in, mostly lettuce, if I've heard that correctly, so it's good that it's done.

Good work on the beds!

Did you like Doc Martin? I couldn't get into it. Maybe because I know England well, it seemed very, "Aren't the peasants adorably wise and foolish at the same time, with their near-incomprehensible non-urban accents?" to me. Annoyingly class-conscious, despite the doc supposedly being more or less from among them originally. It also seems to be trying to copy "All Creatures Great and Small," which I love.

We've been watching the shows on the side, via streaming. I DO like it, better than any other medical show I've watched. I'm not assuming that the depiction of the village folk is all that accurate, mind you.

You did notice the tons of seedlings in the house I've been growing.

Why, yes! The ones taking up most of the available horizontal space on the sideboard, right?

We did, too. I know that they've over-dramatized a lot of it, though.
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
