    @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.

    We have…[Read more]

    @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]

    Well that worked for me. Yes!

    @bluesqueakpip   and @miapatrick   I see Yaz as the level headed member of the team maybe because of her training as a police officer. She knows the value of working with others and how to keep the peace and how […]

    @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]

    @craig  No problem, I have a bunch of Who to watch and a whole lot of time on my hands so I can certainly wait. I hope everything in your life goes smoothly, these days its the most we can ask for.

    @bluesqueakpip   Thanks for the heads up on the Time Meddler. I looked and found the discussions right where they should be. Now I need to find the episodes and watch them because they look good. Maybe we can find an episode we have not re-watched , I am open to anything.

    @cathannabel  I am sorry for your loss. The service you describe sounds beautiful and I am glad it brought you good memories of a woman who sounds very interesting and accomplished.

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

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I think that would be a great idea and it could spark some new conversations. I shall see if I can find it at my library.

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

    @blenkinsopthebrave and @archaicwhovian   I really like Whoopi and I am happy she is such a Whovian but as the Doctor? Who nose? It would be great if she could do an episode of Who , maybe as an alien.

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

    There is a new show on here called “New Amsterdam” about a hospital in New York and one of the Doctors is played by Freema Agyeman,  our own Martha Jones. I heard her  on the TV from the other room and recognized her voice. It looks OK but I have not watched it yet.

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

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I think it would be fun to look back at older episodes of Who and discuss them and I hope @craig  considers it. I am lacking in my knowledge of BG Who and it would be mostly new to me, in fact I admit to never watching “The Meddling Monk”. Sorry.

    @janetteb  That kind of heat sounds terrible and it must be so hard on both people and animals alike. We have the same sort of idiots in Canada using bad science to back up bad ideas. What I find even worse are the people who know that climate change is happening but refuse to do anything because it will cost too much. Too many taxes , too many…[Read more]

  • @fyrespryte  Welcome to the site.I hope you like it here.

    Your post is very interesting and sciencey  and I have nothing intelligent  to add to it. Time travel science makes my head explode so I let the Doctor explain it with “wibbley-wobbley ,timey-wimey.

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

    @archaicwhovian   The episode with the wooden cyberman is The Time of the Doctor. It is a Christmas episode and there is a forum here about it.

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

    @thane16   I also love old movies including the ones you mentioned but when I thought about it I realized that my favourites are the ones with fast snappy dialogue, an abundance of banter and a bit of slapstick. The Thin Man series and Bringing up Baby come to mind. That is probably why I enjoy the 10th and 11th Doctors so much.

    The Birds like m…[Read more]
