60 Love this. Waugh really captured the color of an ocean storm, sky and water, and the ever shifting movement of the waves as they approach the shore and recede from the rocks. His style is realistic enough to accurately show the scene but still painterly, leaving room for the viewer's imagination. Don't know about inland folks, but as someone who grew up on a rocky coast it's easy to hear the wind and water of a storm, feel the force of the wind and the salty, moist air.

He was born a little too late to be a star of TV and movie Westerns the way Steve McQueen, James Arness, and James Garner were. On the other hand, that means he's around now (or at least was recently) to star in the few Westerns being made.

He did play John D. MacDonald's character Travis McGee in a TV-movie/pilot in the Eighties. They changed Trav's houseboat to a sailing vessel and took a lot of other liberties -- I think this was after John D. himself was gone and couldn't see what they'd done. I've never watched it.

188 From Insty:

FACE, MEET PALM: North Sea oil rigs threatened with shutdown unless they start running on green electricity.

Currently, more than 280 platforms extracting oil and gas from UK waters produce 3pc of the country’s total emissions, the equivalent of about 17 million tonnes of CO2 a year.

However, UK oil and gas fields also account for half of the country’s energy needs.


I see no way this can go wrong.

The Cat actor also played a cop in the black comedy Murder in Paradise and there was one scene where he was getting ready for a big date and he was primping himself in front of the mirror just like the Cat.

“You will retract that insult, sir.” Mr. Goldenberg’s gaze was steady on the other. “Or you will live to regret it.”

Mr. Goldenberg’s hands were still on the table, his head erect on his powerful shoulders. He was not a big man, not much taller than Lavalle. But for an instant Marie imagined that only a massive effort of will kept him from seizing Lavalle and breaking the man in half. Goldenberg’s next words came as a snarl that made Marie shiver.

Plain large coffee was $2.20 when I first started going there around 2020/2021. Today it’s $2.95 Never a big jump, just small increments of 10-20 cents.

Another one is a McChicken. Used to be $2.49 not long ago, maybe 3 years. Now it’s $4.19.
