    Strangely enough, it was this k.d.lang track that was running through my brain for much of yesterday, and I even thought of signing in to post it myself, not being aware that you had already done so several days previously ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good to see you too, but I’m so sorry to read the news about your mother. As you say, it hits hard whenever it comes, and if, as I suspect,ย  you were not able to be with her at the end, as has been the case in so many C-14 deaths,ย  it must compound the sense of loss. You are in my thoughts or, as the Quakers say, I hold you in the light.

    In one sense, yes; we can breathe again and experience at least a brief interval of euphoria.

    On the other hand, Davros and the Daleks are still out there, lurking, and unless the Orange One resigns in a massive fit of the sulks, there are still 73 days in which he can continue to ignore the ravages of the Covid 19 virus and…[Read more]

    Strange that it should have occurred to you to post this particular clip at this particular time ๐Ÿ˜‰ , although for some reason it does seem apt and has the effect of pouring balm on my troubled soul.

    Puro; as @blenkinsopthebrave says, it’s great to see you back in the pub and to be reassured that you and yours are surviving the vicissitudes of the pandemic. At least Aus managed to cope pretty well with the initial onslaught of the virus compared with us in the UK, notwithstanding the recent upsurge in cases in Victoria.

    As the Doctor says, ‘… never give up, never give in’, and in the time of Covid-19 that is something to bear in mind. Hence this

    The original context (Catalonia) is not necessarily relevant, but it speaks to the times.

    As today is the 75th anniversary of VE day I thought this might be of interest

    Sidney Stevens, the man whose reminiscences are featured was the father of one of my brother’s school mates and also, apparently, a friend of my father’s, although I wasn’t previously aware of that fact. He…[Read more]

    That article in the Spectator confirms what I have been hearing and reading. The speed and efficiency of the response has been astonishing and heartening, from the reorganisation within individual hospitals and the rapid organisation and construction of huge field hospitals such as that at the ExCel centre, to the fast tracking of…[Read more]

    This is somewhat belated, but commiserations and all best wishes to you both, that you get safely through this anxious and difficult time.

    Happy landmark birthday, and may the next one be celebrated in happier and more convivial circumstances. Meanwhile, here in the pub, we can join you in spirit if not in person. Cheers!

    That fan video is a wonderfully clever montage, and a worthy supplement to the film.

    Thanks for the recommendation of the novelisation. I confess that I have never really bothered with the novels and so far casual browsing hasn’t converted me, but that sounds well worth following up. My immune system being…[Read more]

    This was balm to the soul and left me with a terminal case of the warm fuzzies for the rest of the evening. It encapsulates all that Moffat at his best does so well, but in the aftermath has left me painfully aware of how much I now miss that Moffat touch.ย  It was in every way a worthy summation and celebration of the 50th anniversary.

    All good wishes to you and your boyfriend, and fingers and toes crossed that you avoid further complications from the virus.

    Hope that you are not suffering from cabin fever and that you find a source of revenue, preferably not just UC, but even that at a pinch.
