Oh to Be in England Foodie Friday


I had the easiest set of flights I've had in years and arrived right on time in London. Aer Lingus -- the Irish airline -- did very well. It was almost like flying in days gone by. There was a snack, dinner and a nice choice of movies and television shows. I started with "Game of Thrones, " which I'd never watched and lasted about three minutes. I switched to "House of Cards" and watched five episodes in a row, which made the flight go by very quickly. I'm actually looking forward to the flight home from Dublin when I will watch five more episodes. "House of Cards" looks at a fictional congressman and is equally completely absorbing and a completely depressing. 

My room won't be ready for another while and I'm down the street from the hotel at Caffe Nero, a very pleasant coffee house, enjoying iced coffee, a croissant and free Wi-Fi. It's a very pleasant 74 degrees, not a whit of humidity, and I'm enjoying the moment immensely. 

I hope you're enjoying the moments of today, too. As always thanks for visiting and have a fabulous Friday.

It is so hard to enjoy a flight today as they seldom cater to the passenger today. Glad that your's was the exception.

The strangest thing happened when I first opened your blog...a message from our sponsors popped up....I closed that up and came back and didn't get it. Anyway glad you are safely there and enjoying the low humidity. It is very humid in Ohio today.
