    We lost nearly 45 minutes on a one-track road because plenty of British tourists (no less) were too afraid to pass cars coming from the opposite directions. So, I started by putting my car in a cow pastures (no cows were there, it was empty), along with 3 other cars. Then the two blocking a side street were able to move out of the way so two farmers could go that way with their big trucks. Next we had to wait for all the cars to pass, so back on the road we get stuck again because passing isn't a British drivers best skill apparently.

    A German tourist in front of us in a BMW suv, and my sister walked pretty much the entire road down and guided the British tourists passed each bend or car, including mine. At one point I was literally stuck in a passing place with cars coming passed, my sister telling them how far they had left before hitting the wall on the side. The blue mercedes van and my mokka briefly touched as we were literally millimeters apart from one another. It was with a bit of back and forth that he managed to pass.

    My sister used her excellent assistent skills to -- sometimes yelling commands -- make sure everyone passed the rest in a safe manner. All the while, I was having a chat with other cars passing. Most of us were having loads of fun in that traffic jam... some a little less.
    OMG. Glad some of you were able to stay clear headed and dissolve the chaos. See- that's exactly the kind of nightmare scenario that I was imagining. No, actually, I'm imagining worse, like having to pass by a large tourist bus while on the edge of a steep cliff. Gulp. Trains it is.

    It was a garbage truck and there was a rock wall...

    Or the camper van and the rock wall...

    Or the other SUV and a chasm not worth reminding myself.

    Also, 30% steep uphill -- done it.

    Full insurance on the Mokka this time which came in handy since I scratched the mirror on the lefthand side when I got too close to a wall. Oops...

    Have you ever been to the Amalfi Coast? Scary stuff. All the tour buses have scrapes on the sides.

    That's what they told us on the Amalfi Coast. The drivers almost play a game of chicken, but it was amazing how they maneuver to pass each other. They was much handwaving and cheering by all of us.

    Just watched New Order, and so excited to see wee Torri as Elizabeth Weir 2.0. She works so well with Daniel, and she totally owned those negotiations with those three Goa'uld representatives.

    I really like the relationship between Daniel and Elizabeth. Mutual respect.

    And yeah, it's so awesome how she takes charge.

    One of my faves! It's really too bad we only got Daniel in Atlantis so briefly; he interacted with Elizabeth only a little in SG-1's The Pegasus Project, and Elizabeth was long gone in SGA's First Contact/Lost Tribe.

    Yeah I always thought Daniel was a good fit with the Atlantis guys, I wouldn't have minded seeing at least a little more of him there.

    Come to think of it, wasn't there originally some sort of talk about ending SG-1 with Season 7 and SGA continuing the franchise solo, with Daniel moving over to Atlantis full-time? But then they decided to keep SG-1 on in parallel with SGA. I could be misremembering of course...

    I remember something like that also. Didn't we think he was going to replace Elizabeth? But I think it would have been the Danny and Rodney show, so that worked out okay.

    We had a wonderful and tiring weekend babysitting the twins while their parents went off to celebrate their anniversary and sleep for a full uninterrupted 8 hours. Mr. SR's legs are sore from carrying the 23 pounds up and down the stairs and repeating with the other one. I can't manage it and have trouble lifting them out of the crib but Thing 1 stands up and lifts his little arms for me so that helps. Thing 2 makes his What? face, so my back is a bit tender also. We have mastered "pattycake pattycake" and "put him in the pan" but we have an issue with "roll him over roll him over." We'll work on that later. Thing 2 enjoys randomly waving "bye bye" and Thing 1 is practicing to be a drummer. Such fun. They have their first birthday in a couple of weeks also.

    So hopefully people wave back?

    I mean, I tried waving at people passing by in the little steamtrain at the zoo on friday and only one girl waved back. Boring tourists.
    I have more success in Paris by the side of the Seine where lots of tourists pass by on boats, and when you wave enthusiastically at them, almost all of them will wave back at you.

    Awesome! I guess it does depend on where you are; not so many people wave in more mundane places, but lots of people wave at Disneyland, too.

    Aww! Sounds like cuteness overload. How is #1 practicing to be a drummer? Pots and pans? Tiny drum set or something more creative, lol. Never know with the littles, it always amazes me how they can turn every day ordinary into magic. A tiny tike in my neighborhood blew me a kiss this morning when I was out walking. Totally made my day.

    Waving is a big thing in the South where I'm from. The code is that you must always wave when you are driving and pass someone you know. For safety sake you are allowed to lift one finger in salute or just "throw up your hand" as it were. If you are outdoors and someone passes even if you don't know them, you must wave. It drives Southerners crazy when people move there from other places and don't understand the wave code. My brother thinks his new neighbors are snobs because they don't wave. I have tried to explain it to him but to no avail. Around here we have people from all over, some wave and some don't. Funny but the most consistent wavers on my street are from Albania. LOL

    He drums on everything. When you are feeding him he either kicks one foot in a rhythm only he understands or bangs his hand against the bottle or the high chair depending on where he is. We have ordered him a zylophone for his birthday. Hopefully he will not use the hammer to drum on his brother.
