The classic MONTY PYTHON parody of bad science fiction movies is now available at YouTube. If you've never seen this comedy about aliens turning Englishmen into Scots, you are in for a treat. For those of us who have, it's a comedy sketch that remains as funny now as then.

It's in three parts and runs almost 30 minutes.

I'm not sure why your links really don't show up as links in your postings. Perhaps if you embedded them as an html code, they might work better. It's aggravating to have to try to copy and paste sometimes because the fingers either go too far off the actual link or not far enough. If you embed the links in your posting, that would be so nice. Thanks - E :)

Elysabeth, hates both my browsers so it's extremely difficult for me to use HTML.

In fact, I have to move my post to another application, apply the HTML code by hand, then translate it to HTML, open that, then move the translation back into Blogger. Sometimes, this works, sometimes, it doesn't after many minutes of work.

So, sorry about the paste links. When the time gods are kind, I'll take the extra 30 minutes or so to give you clickable links, but the time gods are rarely kind.
