Oh boy, oh boy and yippee.
Truth is as we don't have cable, a lovely friend in the church is taping for me.

Why do we get so excited at the thought of more Jane?

Doesn't matter. We do!

Will you be writing reviews?

Suzanne~ youve been keeping secrets.....I didnt know you were a 'Regency' girl!? Wonderful! Now do you have any tips to get my husband to let me watch it???? There is supposed to be a NEW motion picture comming out about JA....I think its called 'Being Jane' or something like that~ havent heard how accurate the story is, but I have seen clips and the costume is TO DIE FOR!
