You know when you've been watching too much FW (or MK) when....

*You keep refreshing the pages on the new Quietly Enigmatic website, just to see the different pictures in the banner.

Love the site Lesley! :thumbsup:

You're just tickety-boo when your friend and colleague from work (and fellow WWII enthusiast) gets you a "Keep Calm and Carry On" coffee cup for Christmas.

I do really like the cup. It's made by Rose of England (made entirely in England), and is bone china, so I won't be carrying it around with me at work. Just right for sitting at home with a cup of tea, reading FW fan fic! :foylesuit: :samtall:

This weekend, there was a map fair at the museum where I work; quite a few of the dealers come from the UK. I was helping one of them lug his boxes around with a cart. At one point, when the cart was going through a narrow area, he said, "Steady on." Reminded me a bit of Foyle's response to Sam in "The Funk Hole." :foyle1:

-While observing a student in a classroom, you are distracted by the globe sitting on the table next to you, as it is turned toward England and France. You keep wondering where places like Hastings, Dunkirk, Bexhill, and Brighton are located.

I haven't just 'wondered,' I've taken a virtual stroll through Hastings via Google Maps! Even found DCS Foyle's house! :biggrin: :foyle1:

Glad I'm not the only Google-Map traveller!!

My husband sends his spaceships and aliens all over the planet and occasionally I think, 'I wonder what Phoenix Arizona looks like, or Washington, or Sydney, Aus, or anywhere!' I've also found it invaluable as a tool for looking up the addresses found on Ancestry Census details of where my ancestors lived, or worse, finding that somewhere they used to live is now a shopping centre. It's saved me a fortune in travel costs :lol:

Although, I have to say, nothing really beats the real thing - Jon and I have been to Hastings, and I have a photo of me standing beside the steps of a certain white house in Croft Road :biggrin:

Well, I'll have to play with Google Maps more.

Actually, after that observation, I went back to my office and downloaded a map app onto my iPad (National Geographic Maps HD). If you keep zooming in, it keeps giving you more cities. So, I was able to pinpoint the location of those cities (I knew the English towns were on the Southeast coast of England--just from FW, and I always knew that Dunkirk was sort of across from Dover).

Google maps is fantastic. I've been walking around in the streets of Hasting for the last hour. Foyle's house is beautiful, much bigger than I thought. I wonder how many episodes are filmed in Hastings. The scene where Joe asks Sam to marry him certainly looks like Hastings.

Thank you Hazeleyes. I have read about the book on the old forum and now I have ordered it from Amazon. My next plan will bee to visit Hastings.

(this happened a few months ago...)

*I was observing a student during an American History class, but was more interested in the video on the American home front during WWII. I was quite fascinated by a real ration card that was used during that period that the teacher passed around to the students after they watched the video.

I have my late father-in-law's ration book and clothing coupon book, and my mother-in-law's ID card (she lives in Felixstowe, a coastal town and port). She was 17 and helped her parents in their bakery and cafe. They used to get the boffins from Bawdsey come into the cafe and sit there all evening (until the last ferry back) doodling on the napkins.
