Seasons change...


I thought this to be the perfect picture to usher in a new chapter for my blog. The changing of the seasons, skillfully depicted here. Seasons do indeed change.

When I first started this blog, my main focus was Law & Order:Criminal Intent...especially since I began it while embroiled in the midst of huge changes to the show. A quick perusal of my archives tells that tale! And while I am still a lover of all things Criminal Intent and I still have an interest (!) in the former cast members and their respective careers, I feel it's time to do a little redesigning of the blog to reflect a wider variety of my interests.

For starters, here's a little bit about the current background photo. It's a shot of The Rock of Cashel, also called Cashel of the Kings and St. Patrick's Rock. It's located in Cashel, South Tipperary, Ireland.

Tipperary is a possible family seat in my ancestry, though we don't know this for sure yet. We're only just beginning to get things together to do our family tree and I'm very interested to see where it all leads! One side of my family is a mix of Irish, Scot-Irish, German, and possibly a link to a Native American tribe as well. The other is possibly English or Scottish and more German.

I have a very strong connection to Ireland and Scotland. The call of the Celts is in my blood. Hang with me for a bit and that will become very apparent!

As for Criminal Intent...oh how I miss it! Thankfully I have five seasons on DVD! I'm working on getting the others. These days, I'm also seriously becoming involved in Criminal Minds. Here's hoping that one lasts a few more seasons! I'm a late bloomer!

So here's to the changing of the seasons and the comfort of the past seasons that have left their indelible mark. Slainte! (Gaelic for "cheers")

What a difference a year makes!

A year ago, we were all in tears...

We said goodbye...

And now...like a dream come true...

...we get to say "Hello again!"

The Dream Team is BACK!

A couple of weeks ago, we got the awesome news that Vincent D'Onofrio would be rejoining Law & Order: Criminal Intent and bringing Bobby Goren back for a final season. This news was more than enough to send all of us fans into a frenzy of celebratory dances and Facebook posts! Then we hit the blogs and the message boards.

Now, I must say, as happy as everyone was, the dances soon gave way to one burning question: What about Eames????

Because, truthfully, Goren and Eames go together like peanut butter and jelly...biscuits and gravy...movies and popcorn...

We wanted them BOTH back. And on Friday...we got our wish! The news was good...Kathryn Erbe is returning to Criminal Intent for a final season with Vincent D'Onofrio to reunite Goren and Eames. To say we are happy...that's the understatement of the century!


Welcome back, Bobby and Alex!! We've missed you!!
