    Hey, sounds like a great show. I am no actors,but I need money.

    A lot of men will watch this show, bet we need something to have girls watching it as well......

    I could play the French Canadiand Lumberjack, I don't know why, but when women love my French accent :p.

    I would only eat meatball stew and potato and have those crazy story of me and my old Friend who has stoped talking to me since he is Famous (Bastard Bonhomme!!!).

    I could be the one stuck in 1800's. Leaving far from town in a small hand build log cabin. Lumbing with horse and travelling with sled og in the winter. And I could easilly always be drunk on some caribous or hand brand alcool. (My great grand-father was once a rhum runner during US/CA prohibition, he was bringing boose from St-Pierre Island to the Gaspé Peninsula.)

    The production company called and said that you are a bunch of divas. Someone is demanding a gold plated milk crate, another is requesting a new type of flat bed vehicle, a certain older "gentlemen" wants vodka with Viagra in it and lastly someone won't appear on camera with any "right wing wackos". :coolsmile:

    No problem; I doubt that any "right-wing wackos" will show up for the pellet-splitting contest.

    Sounds like week 10 of boot camp.
    I learned shortly thereafter not to raise my hand and be an aspirant.

    The whisper in the trees is that the toga/pron-star contingent is planning to streak us.
    A-M bring salads or a main dish;
    N-Z bring side dishes or dessert.

    Keeping a low profile; trying to leave her Hollywood days behind her and live quietly now.

    Maple Syrup, dessert; Grandfather, main course. And although this might peg me as a right-wing wacko, bringing him in that capacity could cast you in a suspicious light.

    And now for our culture break:
    http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/171760
    Maple Syrup
    By Donald Hall
    August, goldenrod blowing. We walk
    into the graveyard, to find
    my grandfather’s grave. Ten years ago
    I came here last, bringing
    marigolds from the round garden
    outside the kitchen.
    I didn’t know you then.
    We walk
    among carved names that go with photographs
    on top of the piano at the farm:
    Keneston, Wells, Fowler, Batchelder, Buck.
    We pause at the new grave
    of Grace Fenton, my grandfather’s
    sister. Last summer
    we called on her at the nursing home,
    eighty-seven, and nodding
    in a blue housedress. We cannot find
    my grandfather’s grave.
    Back at the house
    where no one lives, we potter
    and explore the back chamber
    where everything comes to rest: spinning wheels,
    pretty boxes, quilts,
    bottles, books, albums of postcards.
    Then with a flashlight we descend
    firm steps to the root cellar—black,
    cobwebby, huge,
    with dirt floors and fieldstone walls,
    and above the walls, holding the hewn
    sills of the house, enormous
    granite foundation stones.
    Past the empty bins
    for squash, apples, carrots, and potatoes,
    we discover the shelves for canning, a few
    pale pints
    of tomato left, and—what
    is this?—syrup, maple syrup
    in a quart jar, syrup
    my grandfather made twenty-five
    years ago
    for the last time.
    I remember
    coming to the farm in March
    in sugaring time, as a small boy.
    He carried the pails of sap, sixteen-quart
    buckets, dangling from each end
    of a wooden yoke
    that lay across his shoulders, and emptied them
    into a vat in the saphouse
    where fire burned day and night
    for a week.
    Now the saphouse
    tilts, nearly to the ground,
    like someone exhausted
    to the point of death, and next winter
    when snow piles three feet thick
    on the roofs of the cold farm,
    the saphouse will shudder and slide
    with the snow to the ground.
    Today
    we take my grandfather’s last
    quart of syrup
    upstairs, holding it gingerly,
    and we wash off twenty-five years
    of dirt, and we pull
    and pry the lid up, cutting the stiff,
    dried rubber gasket, and dip our fingers
    in, you and I both, and taste
    the sweetness, you for the first time,
    the sweetness preserved, of a dead man
    in the kitchen he left
    when his body slid
    like anyone’s into the ground.

    If that's how it's going to be delivered, I expect standing-room only at the workshop. Hint: steer clear of the mystery meat . . .
