I love Pinterest. Now I have a place to save all those wonderful images I find and want to keep for future reference. Bookmarking/Favorites doesn’t give me the necessary visual for why I bookmarked something and storing them in a folder on my hard drive doesn’t give me the ability to click the picture and be taken straight to the Internet site where I found the image. Most of all, I love seeing what those I’m following are finding on the world wide web that may inspire my writing worlds. That’s how I discovered Downton Abbey.
One had posted a picture of a castle and titled it Downton Abbey. I was quite confused because I knew the place depicted was Highclere Castle in Berkshire. So I did a quick Bing search and became even more confused. I called my bff, Tracy (of Cotton Creek Soap Co..), and asked her if she knew what this show was all about and why I’d never heard of it. Turns out my cable t.v. package doesn’t include any BBC channels, but the show’s being aired on PBS. Excellent news, but I’d already missed all of season one and most of season two.
Yesterday, I found the episodes to view online and I’m SO hooked! I love everything about this series drama. The storyline includes the goings on of the upstairs family/downstairs servants, is rich with awesome visuals, and each episode plot is compelling.
I have a lot of catching up to do before the next episode of season two airs. If I’m not seen around the nets for the next several days, you’ll know why. 😉
