Thanks Lizzy

I just got a couple of lines of words in what I presume was Finnish. Some words were underlined and a different colour. A link, I think. I right clicked, opened in a new window and there was the video.

As you said, well worth the effort. :D

:D My pleasure, Helen! I hope others didn't just give up. Wish I'd thought to mention it sooner.

For me the video comes right up.

Marianne is indeed still very beautiful. That's the first time I have ever seen a video of her or heard her voice, I can see how Leonard was so taken with her.

Dar, about women and age, I don't know if you've seen this but you might think this is funny (language warning) . There are of course some women who become more attractive as the age, i.e. Jessica Lange, but you don't see them flashed all over the media in the same way.

O, ya. (Use of O intentional. hehe) I've seen it Cate.

I was actually going to use the word f*ckable in my post but then backed off.

Be back to this subject later. Gotta run and pick up meds at pharmacy because my old body parts are shot. :roll:
