    I saw Jeremy Piven on Jimmy Fallon's show last night. He said he would start filming season 3 of Mr. Selfridge shortly. He mentioned that he had 12 weeks to grow a beard, so I guess that's about when filming starts.

    I learned a lot about him that I hadn't known and found I have a lot in common with him and that his mother was his first acting teacher and still runs lines with him.

    A story about the same subject matter was shown during an episode of the first season so I was surprised they chose to do it again. I felt so sad for the woman.

    ^ Yeah. In the first episode, the baby was obviously not the husband's but the husband's response was to say he was the most beautiful thing ever. Never even mentioned the dark skin, the baby not being his or anything....it's like he couldn't see it (though it was very obvious so he must have, just not apparent by his reaction). He was also quite a bit older than his wife and this was his first child. It's like he was so happy to have a baby he couldn't care about its origins. Markedly different reaction from the husband in the latest episode. It was a different situation also in that in the earlier episode the woman had married the man because he could provide a good life for her and the children she already had. She was more fond of him than in love with him going into the marriage. She had started to love him and realize how fortunate she was by the time she had the baby; his reaction just cemented that further. Whereas with the current episode the woman had been married to her husband for some time. He was a bully and she had strayed from the marriage. You could tell that their marriage was only going to get worse afterward, as opposed to in the other situation.

    I will admit that my mind did go there, too!

    That sounds like fun. I would consider it, but it's a little far for me, unless I flew. Maybe it'll come closer eventually.

    That first episode was one of my favorites. The wife didn't know what a treasure she had in her husband until the baby was born. He see the baby's color, with his eyes, but I believe he couldn't "see" color with his heart. ANd he had to have really adored his wife as well.

    Hubby enjoys visiting baseball parks, so when I mentioned we could work in games in DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia . . . he was all for it. And he loves DA, too, so I know he'll enjoy the exhibit.

    Opportunities like this are why I'm so diligent about putting everything on our Southwest credit card and paying it off every month. Free airfare!!!
