    Joanna Lumley...There's more to her than AbFab. ;)

    Joanna Lumley Land Of The Northern Lights

    A lifelong yearning to go North to see the Northern Light. At 48:00+ she gets her wish come true. At 59:28 the documentary is finished although it seems to be longer.

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Not to discredit this woman in anyway, but were you aware of a group in Denver known as "Wish of a Lifetime", which regularly celebrates the lives of those 80, 90, and 100? Within the last year, they feted a Pearl Harbor survivor with a trip there to attend the Remembrance Event.

    Used to control the narrative often, celebs, I like Gale's narrative better. She, Joanna is getting pushed in the headlines a lot atm, even two threads on here TOT about her, wonder why the push ?.

    Ps, that's looks terrible on my part to you Elen, sorry. Meant to convey that Celebs usually have no idea they are being used in many differing ways, then sometimes they get sacrificed as such, again in differing ways, I like some of her material and has made laugh me lots.

    I think it's coincidence. She did the cat video, Aragorn recognized her and posted the sci fi series, and then Elen found this one. Following threads works that way.

    Noosphere does too, I suppose.

    No one has to watch anything they don't want to.

    Amen to that...it was of no importance! I sometimes prefer doing something of absolutely NO importance.

    Joanna Lumley fought a campaign to have the rights of all Gurkha veterans recognised by the UK,
    regardless of when they retired. It resulted in a change in the law (which has turned out to be a
    mixed blessing for the Gurkhas).

    Has anybody noticed how her aura is lit up and further, at 49:00...she's interacting with the Northern Light. I can literally SEE how much she's enjoying it!
