• @mudlark  That sounds worth looking for. Thanks for the tip.  In my opinion , the BBC  does not seem too far left. I know because I am way too far left and people need not fear me  because I am the least threatening person I know.  Anyway diversity is the future.

    @janetteb  Your story sounds interesting and all too plausible as the poor will…[Read more]

    @craig   Your post really hits home as I lost a friend of 40 years to suicide a few months ago and it is devastating to those left behind. So many questions and so many ifs. While we thought he was fine, his world was crashing down on him.We would have listened and helped but he never talked to us, in fact he seemed to be a fairly happy person b…[Read more]

    @thane16    A tuckeroo is a flowering tree!  They look like nice shade trees.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @mudlark and @thane16   We have periwinkles here and they are sold as ground cover and tend to grow in shady areas where nothing else wants to grow. I love the dark shiny leaf and the purple/blue colour. I don’t have them here because I am afraid they would get loose and invade the creek banks as a few other plants have done but the in-laws have s…[Read more]

    Happy Earth Day to everyone! I hope you all got a chance to get outside and enjoy the little piece of earth that is yours. My little corner is filled with song birds and ducks and turtles and even a local beaver (we call him Justin) living in our creek. The earth is truly a marvelous place to be. We showed her our love by picking up a big bag of…[Read more]

    @pedant  Those pics are great and I will google the place later to learn more. Thanks for posting them.

    As for the ospreys, it looks like spring has sprung. As for the tee shirts, I wore one in the 70s and my brother had a poster. Sooooo tacky it makes me blush.

    @blenkinsopthebrave   There are definitely parts or clues to a much larger arc that Chibnall  writes into this story and I also wonder if it is harder to write. When I was at school ,a long,long time ago, it was easier to write a story when the teacher told you what is was to be about so maybe it works that way.

    @craig  So I got the time to watch this and I really enjoyed it again. I think it has aged well and it was fun to see the 11th Doctor and Amy and Rory. Once again the Tardis has taken them where they need to be and not where they want to be so Amy has to wear her Rio clothes through the adventure.

    Something has gone wrong at the mine and while…[Read more]

    @craig  I will watch this one tomorrow while Sunday dinner is cooking.

  • winston replied to the topic The Hungry Earth

    @craig   Welcome back!  I got all of the 11th Doctor’s series for Christmas so I am ready for this one and although I have watched it I will again before I comment.Thanks, I am excited about this as it has been a long winter.

    @mudlark   Mudlark Manor sounds lovely. I hope you have a ton of tadpoles in your lake so a frenzy of frogs can sing to you. I love frogs and toads and I am very happy to see them in my ponds and flower beds. We have a creek and wetlands in our backyard so there are a lot of frogs to hopefully eat some of the bitey insects we have but right now t…[Read more]

    @thane16  @mudlark @pedant and @janetteb   Yup! You are all correct, my pancakes are a thicker version of crepes (I do love crepes) but they are not sweet by themselves just by what you put on them. They are usually eaten for breakfast and yes often put in a pile till they are limp and tepid depending on the size of your griddle and the speed of…[Read more]

    @thane16  I am happy that you got some rain and I hope it helps your garden. I have a plastic tub with a lid that I keep at my sink for coffee grounds and tea bags to be worked into the garden all winter. In the summer I put them in a big bucket of rain water and dish water to use in the garden. My Grandma did it so…..it must be good.

    @pedant  Thank you for the pictures, they were lovely. The green grass, blue and white checks and cute little pony made me happy. The town and the church are so beautiful and all the people looked like they were having a good time. Your spring and mine look a lot different right now. When I look out my window all I see is white, grey and snirt (…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip  The blog is great and I have written 2 replies over there that seem to disappear into thin air or another time?  That is too bad because I wanted to tell that I agree with you about the loss of Grace and how it effects  Ryan and Graham in this series, how it changes all of them because loss is change and change can be scary.

    @thane16   @pedant and @whisht   I heard about Peter Tork earlier and although I am very sad at his leaving I also remembered all the fun he brought me as a young girl watching the show ,singing the songs and trying to decide who was the cutest. .As a much older person I have learned to appreciate their music and even took a Monkees CD  on our…[Read more]
