CORR BLIMEY! I'm probobly the happiest Canadian around right now! by Kristine on 1 December 2002 7:28am
 
I just finished "Sahara" this morning, which is now tied with "Full Circle" as my favorite, and then just about an hour ago, I find out that...wait for it...

Sahara (Parts 1-2) is being aired on The Discovery Channel starting tomorrow from 8-10 pm EST! (Parts 3-4 are on Monday)

It was quite uplifting, since I found it out after I discovered that I had missed the soul airing of "And Now For Something Completely Different"

So, for all you lucky Canadian Palinites out there who are lucky enough to get this channel, like myself, it's time to fluff out your comfy chairs, grab some snacks, an inflatable globe, a pair of wing tips and fire up your VCR's, cause it's time to watch! And from what I read in the book, I bet it's going to be something else.

And to My Neighbors down south... I am very...very...very...sorry

Hiya Kristine

ENJOY< ENJOY< ENJOY!!!

Hubby and I watched the first episode totally blown away and delighted and amazed pretty much simultaneously.....This reaction intensified through to the fourth which I found quite emotional..........the returned "Desert Rats" with their experiences....very moving.....Michael under 24 hour guard on "that' train trip........and surprisingly I cried watching him lying in his cave/room in Tunisia singing along with Eric while he was watching the "Life of Brian" on a portable DVD player. It seemed very poignant and moving.Not entirely sure as to why it affected me quite so much.
Also Michael looking around the locations for "Brian", very poignant.

Happy watching....I'd send you a Devonshire Cream Tea to enjoy in the comfy chair but Dianne ate them all!!! :-}

Another happy Canadian, here.

I'm watching "Sahara" right now (at nearly 2 am), and visiting the site.... Amazing that one can watch a program, find something that twigs your interest, look it up on the internet, and Boom! there it is! Always a marvel to me.
