    @thane16   Wow!  That sounds like quite an enchanting holiday destination with exotic birds and other animals and beautiful blue pools of water. I am happy you and Thane had a good time and that you and your phone escaped too much harm. The only things I wouldn’t like are the leeches and spiders. I love going on long hikes exploring and I  hav…[Read more]

  • @craig  It is a great show and Sandra Oh is excellent.  Also she is Canadian.

  • This Christmas my son got me a set of all of Matt Smiths episodes as the 11th Doctor and I finally got time to do a major re-watch.  I just watched The Eleventh Hour and it was so very good! I forgot how much I enjoyed the episode that introduced us to a new Doctor and 2 new companions. A little girl praying to Santa hears that wheezing sound…[Read more]

    @pedant  I used your Mothers answer today when Mr Winston asked me how long his chicken should roast for… “until its done” I answered and got a nasty grin in return.

    @thane16  @idiotsavon and @mudlark  Quite a few years back my oven quit on Christmas Eve ( as they do) and I had  about 20 family members coming for dinner so there was much fra…[Read more]

    @pedant     Dr Hook  was part of the soundtrack of my youth and I have never listened to Sylvias Mother without tearing up. Ray Sawyer thanks for the music.

    Happy New Year to all of my fellow Whovians all over the world!  I have 2 hours to try to stay awake so I can say I saw the new year come in. ( too old and wise to party)  I truly hope you all have a good year ahead and warm hugs to those who suffered loss this year. Lets all grab a hold 0f 2019 and make it do what its told.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @missy  Right back at you!  I hope your year is everything you want it to be.

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

    @kevinwho    Sometimes I  try really hard to watch an episode objectively so I can discuss it with all of you  more intelligently and less emotionally but it never happens. I hear the music,read the credits, see the Doctor and I am lost in the story.  I do dislike some of the adventures the Doctor has but I never dislike a new Doctor . I just…[Read more]

    @thane16    It is an ever changing and evolving show that grows up as it grows old and it always challenges me in some way. Some episodes age better than others but I still love most of them and I find something new to like every time I watch an episode. It just gets better and better.

    Vampires in Venice, the Tardis and Amy Pond and her boys, wh…[Read more]

    @thane16  It is still Christmas here for 27 minutes and the house is very quiet for now. Boxing Day brings another dinner and more family visits and then both granddaughters come and stay for a few days before New Years so we are still a little busy. I am kidding about the favourite son thing of course, or am I? I am.

    When it is too cold we…[Read more]

    @janetteb and @thane16   Hope you both had a good day. I wish I could send you some cold because you are way too hot there and we have plenty to spare. Your feasts sound yummy and I would love a juicey summer nectarine or peach.Mmmmmm.

    @miapatrick  Your day sounds perfect and I love Christmas doggies.

    @kevinwho  I just watched that one and it…[Read more]

    @ddoherty95    Hey!  Yes of course we missed you and I am doing great so thanks for asking. Just recovering from a great day at my sons house where I ate too much. Your pics were funny ,thanks for the giggles and Merry Christmas.

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

    Merry Christmas to all my friends in Whoville!  I hope you all get the day you want, be it peaceful or  boisterous and that you have friends or family to spend it with. My wish is for a better world where if we can’t be nice we must still be kind and where we are never cruel and never cowardly.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @mudlark  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Glad to see you didn’t blow away in that storm you had out there. Your choices are excellent and I really like The Miracle of Morgans Creek. Have a great day!

  • @kevinwho    I have been re-watching all of the Christmas episodes in order as I get ready for the big day and this is one of my favorites. It is so sweet and hopeful it can’t fail to give you the “feels”. Happy crying. For me the story was about how far a Mother will go to protect her children. Madge is my hero, she disarms her keepers and go…[Read more]

    @arbutus     Forget hockey, complaining about the weather is the Canadian national sport. Right now in Ontario it is freezing rain to be followed tomorrow by warmer temps and just plain rain. No snow for Christmas this year but come January………..Brrrrr.

    Another thing we bond over is food and Ukrainian food is sooo good but a lot of work. I m…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave      I suggest:  Scrooged   with Bill Murray because I really can’t stand watching Bruce Willis walking barefoot through all that glass. I actually cover my eyes till its over.

    I also suggest Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation because I like the comedies.

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

    @craig    Thank you, that was very cute.

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

    @craig  The more I watch that fireplace the more I love it. Next year…. Doctor Who themed Christmas at my house. My search for Tardis blue ornaments and shiny things begins now. It is too late this year but next year it will be a blue Who Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration and for giving me a Who themed activity for those long Who-less months.

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

    @thane16  I just watched the Snowmen and decided that next time I have good snow ( lots of snow and temps. about 2 or 3C ) I am going to make a few evil snowmen to scare my granddaughters. Don’t worry, at 14 and 10 years old they are not easily scared and the youngest is a fan so she will love it. Last year I had snowmen with protest signs…[Read more]
