  1. It's a 12 month program, September 2011 to September 2012. Yeah, it's going to be a hassle figuring out how to get Milo over there and I know he'll have to be quarantined for awhile, but I need him with me. He's my baby!

    If you go, get an airline that will allow Milo in the plane cabin not in cargo. Gerry has taken Lolita to Scotland for a visit. He is not there long enough for Lolita to be quarantined so there must be a way around that. Ask a Vet. I was on a plane and a man had his dog sitting next to him in First Class. He bought the dog a ticket and the dog didn't have to stay in a crate. Where there is a will, there is a way.

    Actually, Gerry mentioned in an interview once that he has a passport for Lolita so she doesn't have to be quarantined. I'm sure there are weight limits, etc. about which dogs can go in the cabin vs. cargo. The best thing to do is call the airlines and see which all the limits, etc. are when flying with an animal, and how long the quarantine is for.

    Keep us informed!

    Have a look on the DEFRA website. It has all the info for bringing dogs into the UK. Once they have the passport there is no need for quarantine. I've travelled with my two dogs many times and it works perfectly.
  2. As for the drop foot....I can't remember how I know this .... but Gerry either said it or I read somewhere that Gerry's drop foot actually happened when he was young and that it was re-aggravated while making 300.

    hugs,

    Sue

    I remember hearing this too. I thought he said he was gardening when he was young, and he put a garden fork or trowel 'through' his foot, which resulted in the drop foot. I may be wrong

    Can't remember if I read it or it was a TV interview.:confused:

  3. I watched the movie before I read the book, which for me, was a better way round to do it. I love both the book and the movie even though they are quite different.

    I much preferred the character of Holly in the book than to the movie, she seemed a lot more relaxed. I suppose sometimes its easier to develop a character fully in a novel than in a 2hr movie.

  4. I haven't seen a couple of these yet, so I will vote for what I have seen.

    I had to go for D2K. I just didn't get that movie at all. I didn't like any of the characters in it, and Gerry was so under used. It was showing on TV here late one night, and I couldn't see it through to the end. I had to switch off.

    By the by, I actually quite liked Gamer although I really didn't expect to. Granted, it's not the type of movie I could watch over and over. I couldn't stand POTO at first (shock horror!). I first saw it long before Gerry fandom and couldn't sit through more than 10mins. Now, it is one of my favourite Gerry movies, and favourite movie in general.

  5. This one required a lot of thought :yummy: To me, all of the characters are sexy in different ways. In the end though, I had to go for The Stranger. Such an air or mystery around him. I just love The Stanger

  6. Wow, I never knew there was such a big Hogmanay event in Glasgow!! It looks like great fun.

    I went to the Flambeaux event they have in Comrie a few years back. It is great fun. There is a similar event in a town called Stonehaven (on the East cost) that I used to go to every year. They have huge cages with burning embers inside which the locals swing around their heads. Quite a sight. They progress along the main street, eventually ending up at the harbour where they throw the balls into the sea. Its a huge event.

  7. Glad you all like them. Its just a very heavy frost that hasn't melted for 3 or 4 days. We haven't had much snow yet. This area doesn't get nearly as much snow as it used. According to some people, it used to start in October and snow right through until March. That's climate change for you.

    Suzie, I know what you mean. I can't stand snow either. It can be pretty to look at, but after the first five minutes, I get sick of it. It's so disruptive.

    I live very close to two big ski centres. I'm sure they wish we had more snow. There are maybe 3/4 weeks of good skiing snow a year. I don't know how the keep going. Some places in the UK (not everywhere) can't handle even a little flurry of snow. Schools close, business shut, public transport stops running, traffic on the roads grinds to a halt.

    Theresa, a GAL can only dream right? :cunning:

  8. I took these this morning. The dogs were enjoying their morning walk so I took the opportunity to get some pictures. The temperature last night got down to about -12c...

    There is nothing you can do about it. Sometimes you do get to grips with it then as you say a new photo emerges and that is it :lmao:

    Just go with the flow, dont fight it learn to live with it, it will soon be part of your normal everyday life that you can - but dont - want to live without - like chocolate :rotflmao:

    Moira

    Well, Moira, I won't even contemplate living without chocolate(that thought really scares me ha ha), so I guess I won't be living without this man any time soon.

    I going with the flow :bouncydrool:

  10. Aww good for you Moira. It's a really great article.

    Tonight when I came out of my local shop a woman stopped me; she had to be about 60; and said "aww hen i saw the article he's awfy braw and i saw the film Saturday and they should be giving out Tena Lady before they go in as the sight of that bare body just made me moist". I didn't know where to put myself but i told her if she had a computer to come on Gals

    Great story. I can't breathe I'm laughing so hard... :lmao:

  11. Jo, isn't it funny how we can look at Gerry in one role and think "wow, he's good looking" and then see him in another role and get completely blown away? I've had many many people say that they didn't realize he was Phantom or the guy from 300, etc. He's such a fabulous actor that he can change his look/personality and someone doesn't even realize it.

    He's simply amazing.

    So true. Its one of the things that amazes me most about him and his acting ability. All the characters he has played are all so different. Not like other actors, who IMO, are 'pinned' to one genre. Good decisions on Gerry's part.

    I would love to know which, of all the characters, has the most of him in them. Not as in 'how much work' he put in, but more how much of himself there is, if any, in a character. I didn't explain that very well... hohum :wave:

  12. I love reading everyone's story. I'll add mine even though I am still pretty much a newbie. BTW Theresa, I love your story. I had a funny one a while back. My boss is called Garry. Garry/Gerry - pretty close isn't it! I was at work last week, had to go into bosses office to ask a question. I walk in and say ''Gerry, can you tell me if...'' ooops!! I try to avoid saying his name now, I just know it will come out Gerry. I don't mind that but I think he might get a bit upset at being called Gerry all the time, lol. (Theresa, Garry, the boss, comes from Chelmsford too hehe)

    Anyway, back to GALS. It hit me about 4 months ago. I didn't have a clue who this man was. Even though I live in Scotland, he hasn't had that much recognition here. I saw PSILY last year. The first time I saw it, I came in about half way through and really liked it. Watched it every time it was on TV. Each time I found myself thinking 'hmm, that Gerry Kennedy is kinda nice' I didn't take it any further than that. It was only this year, when I saw the trailers for TUT that something clicked. Realising it was the same person, I had to know more. Looked him up on google, spent hours and hours on you tube watching interviews, fan vids, anything with him in it. I was hooked.

    Then when I fond this site, and read the 'symptoms' of GALS, I knew I was a gonner. And I just love it.

    Of course, meeting the man himself has just multiplied my 'symptoms' to another level... :yay:
