    The longer this isolation lasts the lazier I get about what I look like.After all nobody is coming over to see me. I have taken to pajama day like a duck to water.Today I had on what I called my mullet clothes ,business on the top and party on the bottom. While in the back yard I saw some people paddling down the creek but when I realized what I…[Read more]

    @craig  Happy 50th Birthday!  It is a real drag that you have to spend it without your family but at least you have your phone and your Whovian fam online. I hope your cake is your favourite kind and you have ice cream to go with it. In fact I will have some ice cream in your honour. I hope you like my sacrifice.

    @nerys  I agree with you on Chris Ecclestons Doctor, he was really great in the role.  I also found him funny and heartbreaking at times. He and Billie seemed to fit together by the end of this episode and I wanted to see where or when they were going next. He adds a seriousness to the role that fits a man who just destroyed his planet and is a…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  I saw this on the news and it was great! We can’t do enough to help and thank these brave,  hard working folks.As to the off- license  being closed I feel for you. Ours are still open for now.

  • winston replied to the topic Rose

    Rose was my introduction to a show that is now part of my life in weird and wonderful ways and I still love it. It was 2005 and the CBC in Canada was advertising the return of Doctor Who playing on their network. I saw Christopher Eccleston  and remembered him from Second Coming and so decided to watch it. I was not a fan of the BG  Who because I…[Read more]

    @miapatrick   I am glad you still have a sense of humour in this horrible time.I think that may be the only way to get through this sh*t storm, that and binge watching Doctor Who of course. My husband wakes up far too early and watches the news, so when I get up I am deluged with bad news before I finish my 1st coffee. Wait till I am finished b…[Read more]

    @nerys   Just looked at your Sandy Point webcam but all was dark except for the lights on the water so I will look tomorrow. We love N.S. and spent a month there in 2015 on the Digby Neck and it was so beautiful!

    @missy  That video did make me smile and dance in my chair.. That zookeeper was cute and he had some good dance moves.Loved the fan work and the cheeky ending. Thank you.

    @janetteb  We are doing our best to stay home and we are in week 3 of social isolation. Our Prime Minister is doing his best as are most Canadians so we hope to flatten that curve. There are always people who don’t listen but now they can be fined if they don’t stay away from each other like parties on the beach etc. Many manufacturers are now…[Read more]

    @missy  Hello!  I am glad you are OK and I hope you can avoid this virus. Thanks for the video, we need all the smiles we can get. Stay safe and don’t get in a pickle.

    @nerys  I am trying to follow my own advice and stay safe and sane. It will be so much easier when it is warm enough to get into the garden and greenhouse. I will be starting mo…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave   My daughter is on the west coast of the island and she says it is either people freaking out or acting like all is normal but here where I am people seem to be staying home if they can.We went for a drive, just to get out of the house without being near other people, and the town streets were eerily quiet. We have 6 cases i…[Read more]

    @peacefrog   We are pretty much locked down in Canada now and our grocery stores are limiting sales of bread and other basics and opening for less hours so they can restock their shelves. They are letting us oldies in an hour earlier and by ourselves so we can avoid the crowds. I stay home myself and sing “It’s the end the world as we know it” t…[Read more]

    That was great fun to watch again and I enjoyed it as much as I ever did. All the Doctors were together,so different in looks but still the Doctor and it reminded me why I love this show.Tennants brave warning to a fat bunny and Smiths remarks on 10s skinniness still make me grin as well as Hurts complaints about the other Doctors use of the sonic…[Read more]

    I just saw that the air pollution over most cities is down(less cars) and Venice has lovely blue and clear water in its canals(less boats). It is amazing how quickly we can change our environment.

    @blenkinsopthebrave    Great shout out to the National Film Board of Canada, I grew up watching these films at home and school. I am going to check it out .

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @jimthefish   I would be up for a re-watch of Day of the Doctor and even though I own it I would watch at 7pm my time, just because I need some structure in my life these days. I would also like to discuss it again with everyone else.

    As far as Penny Dreadful goes, my library is shut for now so I would have to go on memory.

    @miapatrick It sounds like you already have your hands full so I hope you can keep clear of this. Stay safe and sane.

    @blenkinsopthebrave   Our library is closed now but they have an online library so I have the books and the time to read them. We still have one more day of syrup making and then I can get down to catching up on movies and…[Read more]

    @mudlark  Thanks for that. It was funny and sadly true.I actually heard someone say that “it only kills seniors or people with other illnesses”! First of all to downplay the loss of these people to their families is so wrong it is fu*ked up. As if they don’t matter.  Being a senior I hope I matter but this is a shocking insight to how we are v…[Read more]

    I live a few hours north of Toronto and just today a few cases in our area were announced. While OH and I are at the risk age we are still OK an hope to stay that way, but who nose. The panic buying in the city has spread out and there were 10 times the people and traffic going to our town to buy stuff. There was no bread ,toilet paper , potatoes…[Read more]

  • @jimthefish  I would be interested in watching Penny Dreadful. I am pretty sure they have them at my library. I have seen the 1st series a while back but I would do a rewatch if others are interested.If I remember it was very good and very creepy.
