  2. I think "The Amazing Mr. Blunden" looks interesting. We know that Mark Gatiss from "Dr. Who", he is very capable actor. Bye the way, all films and tv series are bought by the netflix. Is it fair?

    1. Not in all countries, but mostly. In USA the biggest company always holds the monopoly and dictates everything. It is believed that they will now try to enter Russian market as it has at least 100 million viewers and they do not want to leave it all to Russian streamers.

  6. I'd never let someone come look around my home just because they said they used to live here. Well, Jason was actually friends with the brother of the lady who we bought our house from, so that would be the only exception. A complete stranger though? Uh, no.

    1. The owner of our house runaway to Hungary so she ain't coming back LOL But I do often pass next to my old house when travelling by bus to Novi Sad and now it is no longer a family home and a farm but an office with two massive factory storage buildings. I wouldn't mind checking it out but it is on the other side of the city.

    2. Now that would be interesting to see and I'm sure that whoever runs that business wouldn't mind you stopping in for a peek. It's not a private residence, so I'd totally ask for a quick tour there.

    3. They'd be happy as he was very thrilled when we sold him the land. We did not sell it to him just as a house but also as a property and piece of land in an industrial area of the city which meant that he could build a business there. We got a bit more money that way, but he also got a nice location as it is close to big roads and exits from the city.

    4. Seems like it was a win for everyone involved that way.

    5. It was! Not that we are happy in this house, but house probably does not have anything to do with it.
