John, please forgive me, this is WAY OT, but I couldn't help myself.  A young 40 year old Dame Maggie as a guest on the Carol Burnett Show, as Gwendylspire Boughgrough in 1974.  Dig the legs.

Wowza! As you say, great gams!

Note to the (possibly deceased) members of the writing team: "The King and Queen welcomes you--"

Really!!??  Talk about lèse-majesté!!

And talk about OT! Odd Fact: Dame Maggie is one year younger  than Ms. Burnett! Total Odd Fact: a friend walked into a restaurant near where I live (a restaurant which is half-owned by Justin Timberlake, of all people--weirdly, somehow, I still  haven't managed to get there myself) and who was sitting in the waiting area/ lounge off the bar, but looking, well, who was  indesputably--Carol Burnett!

Unfortunately, my friend broke the New Yorkers/Celebrity-in-Mufti Convenant, which is never but NEVER acknowledge a celebrity, ESPECIALLY in a restaurant EVER  (ok, he's a fan, but even so). He went up to her and said, "Oh Ms. Burnett--" and she, the utterly indesputably Carol Burnett, serenely (and a bit evilly) let him know that, no, she was not  Carol Burnett. And he had to walk away with his tail between his legs. As the young people now say: Burn!!!

  Downton Abbey just won the Golden Globes award, for best mini series.  Yay.

  I was hoping that Dame Maggie would win an award also, but it seems that she was not even nominated.  The man that plays the Head of the clan, I forget his name. (Hugh Bonneville.) Won for his role. 

   Looks like you are as much in love with this show as I am Paul.  I like to hear it when people I know appreciate the same shows.  I sent off and purchased the video.  I can't wait for the new season to start.



     Beautiful mind
