May I politely say, that my opinions are not just my own. Also, they are not offensive – that’s your opinion.
What I find offensive, is being referred to as a ‘guy’ whenever my OH and I go into a shop or restaurant.
Usually beginning with “Hi guys!” be assured that I have mentioned it – very politely.
This whole gender thing is, I s…[Read more]
Before I am accused of being a stirrer or offensive, this was sent to me by an avid Doctor who fan.
Whether there is any truth in it who knows. I make no comments either way, the media cannot always be believed.
See what all of you think.
Well, it must be my age, because many of our age group feel as I do. It doesn’t offend me, it makes me laugh.
It’s the people who prefer Actor for a female, and being referred to Miss or Mrs. who are offended.
I am married, therefore my title (on every form) is that of Mrs. Why people are offended by this is beyond me.
If I hear Mayor I th…[Read more]
Everyone in general:
I must be the only person on this forum, who doesn’t agree with Halloween. It’s become very commercialised, with children going around dressed up to cadge sweets. The Celts have a lot to answer for. *grins*
You are right, I’ve watched the clip many times.
Because they are actresses. Why not call actors actresses?
Mind you, I could never understand some females getting uptight about being called Miss if single. Ms is just plain daft, and mean the same thing as Miss.
Peter is still favourite Doctor. “grins”
Thank you so much, I truly do appreciate it.
We are trying to move home to a smaller house, so you can imagine the chaos. Our children are wonderful,
as I said to my OH, “we must have brung ’em up right!”
However as a famous writer once said :
“When sorrows come they come not single spies, but in battalions”
He is hospita…[Read more]
For me, Political correctness means:
Not calling people Wops, Wogs, Yids, Yanks, Frogs, Krouts, Niggers etc. Which I never have.
Then the lunatic fringe got working on it, and we get Spokesperson, Batters instead of Batsmen or woman and Chairperson – one must never say man or woman. *rolls eyes*
I could say more, but I’ll leave it…[Read more]
Thank you – ALL of you for your kindness. I shall certainly look for all the support for the both of us that I can.
We are fortunate in having three lovely children, all ready to help.
It’s the moving that’s terrifying. I won’t be able to pay the rent on a three bedroom house, once…[Read more]
It’s terrifying what fire can do. You sound too close for comfort. These ‘kids’ lit the fire on purpose and being the woman I am I’d do more than slap their wrists!
The damage and suffering they have caused. Homes lost, innocent animals burned to death. They should be made to help the Fire brigade fight the fires, then pick up the dead…[Read more]
@thane16 or syzygy
I was neither angry nor pretending to be, simply irritated by the unnecessary use of the “F” word.
As my comment was not directed at you, I can only reply that it was none of your business, and I did not deserve
Much too late in the series – I fear – we’ve started watching GREEN WING. I dare say most of you have seen this completely mental sitcom.
Michelle Gomez, as Sue White is wonderful – actually the whole cast is wonderful. It’s surprising that they actually made this programme in a Hospital.
What do the rest of you think of it?
Hello to you.
Peter Capaldi was very popular with some and disliked by others.
I never had a favourite until he came along, then it was HE who was my doctor.
There is no ambivalence on my part about a female Doctor, it’s all wrong.
I feel that Political correctness played a large part, using regeneration as an excuse.
As the r…[Read more]
Good idea. I have two others given to me by the same friend.
Doctor who the Companion’s Companion.
Doctor Who. Time Lord Fairy Tales.
However, the Tardis manual is the best so far.
Thank you for posting, I was beginning to think I was invisible. *sniffs*
This is after all the forum for all things Doctor Who – isn’t it?
