I'm half-way through Series 2 of 'Sons of Anarchy' on Netflix and all of a sudden, Bosch is sitting there!

Crap Irish accent!
 
Half through Dark Desires on Netflix - don’t watch it with your granny or your mum
Fear City was pretty good too but not in the same league as the Narcos series - the original and the Mexican
And if you want a bit of Historical fluff and trivia try Reign - me and Mrs LBG just halfway into the First series and it’s pretty easy watching - which is good cos there’s a LOT more still to go

Not that we’re spending every waking hour locked down in front of the box you understand ........ but the decorating and garden landscaping are finished now
 
It’s on Netflix SB - I had to search for it - I’d seen it mentioned by a columnist in the Saturday Telegraph - but it’s on there - unless it’s country specific but I doubt it - we use our daughters login and she’s in Oz

It is 'on the plain'! Just past Antequera if you're interested!

When it rains here, there are no half measures - we frequently get 5 / 6/ 7 inches of rain in one pop. Not good when we live down a dirt track! Usually end up with troughs up to 18 inches deep. Where it all runs together at the beach, we've seen a trench 2m deep cut into the ground - sadly it trapped all the swampys for weeks until they had filled it in!

Remind me mid to end September and I'll take pictures after the first big rain!

Can you apply to your local council to build a mongy ditch , summat like the one behind the goal of No 1 pitch
opposite the Armada Club in Singers ?. So deep if the footy/rugby ball dropped in at a floodlit match it was left till daylight to fish them out.......plenty of spare balls at matches. ;)

Hah - Spanish left and right hands...... I cut grooves across the track to divert water (it's a steep earth track) if I get enough warning of impending really heavy rain. The council 'level' the surface of the track every year as it leads to a public beach. There is a 'gutter'. Now, you'd think that when using 'spare' soil with which to level the track that they might use the digger to excavate the spoil from the gutter. No - that would be too simple. Ah, the joys.... :cool:

We DO have dry river beds which are used to divert rainwater - they make monsoon ditches look like a groove!It is really scarey to see the amount of water that comes down them during a storm. The sea ends up with 'islands' of rubbish that has been washed down from the hills - even cars and ISO containers!!
