    @janetteb    Sorry about your tough week. I am done with dragging kids through school and in fact we are going to my granddaughters grade 8 graduation next week.Her parents can fight the good fight and we will just enjoy the milestones.

    In Ontario the province I live in we just had an election for premier and they voted in a Trump impersonator wh…[Read more]

    @pedant and @ichabod  I agree that people and animals today are already suffering from the effects of climate change all over the world. Hotter summers every year along with the smog alerts that go hand in hand with forest fires and massive heat related tornadoes. Our far north Inuit towns losing feet of shore line to rising sea levels, and…[Read more]

    @ichabod  First let me congratulate you and your grandson and his new wife. They sound like wise young people with brilliant futures. Secondly , I want to say I agree with your posts and I also have a big stake in the game. My granddaughters and grandsons as well as all the children on this planet deserve better than what we are leaving them and…[Read more]

    @ichabod   I always understood how some felt about the gender change of our Doctor and I felt /feel some of it too. Also I worry that there are many people who will not even give her a chance and that is sad.  I just think about all those past Doctors and their memories ( including Clara)  being part of this new regeneration. It will be fun…[Read more]

    @ichabod  I have to agree that with you about the culottes. I didn’t like them the first time around but thats just me. I also wonder how the whole”female” time lord thing will be dealt with. She can’t just ignore it but we don’t want it to become the whole story,  just like being a female is not my whole story.

    When Matt Smith first took the r…[Read more]

    @toinfinityandbepond  Thank you for the news , I look forward to that.

    @janetteb   I have one of those lists. It gets longer instead of shorter no matter how many items I cross off it. I wish I had a grandma cave all my own so I could geek out with Tardis blue walls and Who stuff everywhere but I settle for a little corner and my new shelf to feed my inner nerd.

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @janetteb   Oooooh a Tardis shower curtain! I like it.  Definitely not tacky.

    @thane16  Hello Puro ! Things here are good. Although we are still in spring we are having an early heat wave with temps of 30C. the last couple of days. I think it will be a hot, dry summer with lots of watering to keep the veggies and flowers going. Thankfully we live on a creek and have a pump and lots of rain barrels to save on water from the…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @janetteb  I am also suffering through this dry time. My withdrawal symptoms include making up my own compilations like all the dalek episodes or all of River Song’s episodes etc. I also made a Tardis shaped shelf , painted it Tardis blue and placed my Who “stuff” on it. Next project is a Tardis for my garden with a solar lantern for the roof and…[Read more]

    @everyone  Has anyone ever watched the series “The Last Detective” with Peter Davison as Constable Dangerous Davies? I lucked out and found the set of 4 seasons at a second hand shop for just ” 8 of our Canadian dollars” (to misquote @craig) . It is a pretty entertaining tale of a very nice man doing a very tough job. Nice to see the 5th Doctor…[Read more]

    @craig    Isn’t it annoying when real life happens?  Really though it is good to see you back and thank you for the link. I will have to get me some of those books.

  • winston replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor

    @ddoherty95   I think your emoji says 10th Doctor.  I love the 10th Doctor and I am a big David Tennant fan too. I hope he replies to you. Thanks for the kind words about my profile pic.  At my age when you have lost parents and other loved ones and when you have grandkids that quote really hits home. We are all just stories in the end so lets hop…[Read more]

    @janetteb   It seems we have more than Who in common, I am also the only vegetarian in my family so I rarely cook “vegetarian dishes” just extra veggies for me. I also grow hibiscus and I adore them. I have 3 colours-a solid white, a pale pink with a magenta eye and a solid dark red although they are all asleep now and I won’t see the flowers t…[Read more]

    @thane16  Thank you for the kind offer and I would love to try something new. I really love humus , I fry pitas till they are warm and brown and than dip them in it. I garden for myself and as a part-time job. It is a passion of mine. I grow a lot of  our food and I also love flowers, everywhere and any kind. It is a lot of work but very s…[Read more]

    @ddoherty95  My guess would be the same, Twice Upon a Time, but @bluesqueakpip got there before me. And yes that was corny, but cute, and no I don’t do them.

  • winston replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @thane16   I am happy that the heat of summer is over for you and @missy and @janetteb  as it looks like it was a hot one for you all. I am hoping we will at least get spring here soon. In Ontario where I live it is still very cold and has snowed on and off for days! Some brave crocus have bloomed only to be covered to protect them from the sn…[Read more]

    @ddoherty95  Is it Love and Monsters?  I also like your new profile pic, nice choice.

    @missy  I am rubbish at cryptic crosswords  and stick to the regular kind.

  • winston replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor

    @marianne Nice!  I like them all especially 9.
