It is on Netflix.
We just finished watching Murdoch Mysteries on Netflix. Takes place in turn of the century (1900) Toronto.

Watch for their specials, or search Direct TV on the internet and see what they are offering. Bare if you search TOTV you will see a great deal of information on Direct TV.
Thanks for the info.
We cancelled Comcast, and we'll be looking for another provider when we return to The Villages in November.
I'll contact Direct TV to see if they have any specials.

Does anyone know if there is a new series of Grace and Frankie available on Netflix?
If so, I can't find it.

I read that they are getting a 4th season, with Lisa Kudrow joining the cast. But it does not start until 2018.

We were sorry that there were so few episodes of the Murdock Mysteries.

We are now watching Father Brown. We never know where the mystery will take place. It feels like the producers let the writer's imagination have 100% freedom.

I had the same darn problems! Cept my stylist used Schwarzkoph back home. I went to every "good" salon in TV and nothing worked until I found Stevie at a little salon in Wildwood called "Tou Lou."

We love Father Brown. I bet a lot of people don't watch thinking it to be a religious them. I love the plot and the forties costuming. G.K. Chesterton?

Yes I remembered. Wow.

I've let my hair grow it's natural color.
But instead of being a lovely white, it's more a steel color, lots of dark still there. Not pretty like white.
My hairdresser suggested lowlights.
I have never had lowlights, anyone had them?

A long time ago, but I didn't date them very long.

OH...Low LIGHTS.

Bare, Low lights will add more dark tones, is that what you want?
Try googling images of - grey hair with lowlights. See if you can find an image that approaches what you are looking for.
If you find something you like, consider the eyebrow color in the photo as well- that it is similar to your own.

Another option is to add a sprinkle of highlights- a FEW very very lightly sectioned strands. Some lighter strands will add sparkle and may be enough to get you through.
Chances are your grey will evolve more brightly with time. Mine has.

Silver is the new trendy color for short and medium hair!

Bare this site has some absolutely gorgeous looks for grey hair, but the models are not very mature, so that may make a difference as to how they look so good.

I went from almost black hair to platinum very quickly. Both sides of my family go white, not grey. I was in my early 40s and I was horrified so I went through all the streaking, low lights, hi lights, you name it, until I finally became comfortable in my own skin and accepted my hair and my "look" for what it is. I do get a really good stylish cut and my clothing leans towards modern youngish looking clothes. I also changed my makeup to a much lighter skin tone with emphasis on the eyes. My eyebrows stayed black so that helps.

Going grey is difficult because it really does signal age, but you cannot fight age, so use all the improvements in hair color and cosmetics to make the best of what you are.

I actually have people in my hair salon who ask for my hair color and my adorable hair stylist always says "this does not come out of a bottle, it is a gift from God".

I want to add some pizazz to my steel-colored hair, maybe auburn lowlights?
But that might look really bizarre on "salt and pepper" hair. I need advice re color.
Eyebrows -- some women have eyebrows?
Perhaps I'll consider microblading when I return to TV. I heard about it on another thread. Do you know anything about it?

Nothing better than silver hair on a young face. Unfortunately that ship sailed for me many moons ago.
I think you live close to me. Can you share the name of your hair stylist?
