A massive talent, and personality, that will be sadly missed... RIP Meat
cannot beat a good Zombie flick!
I couldn't get into it... perhaps i have the rose tinted lenses for Niven
Happy New Year!
Actually the best programme i have seen over Christmas, was Worzel Gummidge last night... I truly thought when I first read this was being resurrected, that it would be a travesty, I grew up loving Pertwee version...
However I am absolutely amazed at how good this reincarnation has been... cannot wait for tonight's episode
I missed the beginning but the kids started watching Nativity on CBBC, so I've found myself watching what's left :)
I have watched these also... and quite enjoyed them
Watched this last night... whilst predictable I found it to be a really good watch, loved it when they entered the hoard of Nazi treasure, and he starts whistling the theme to Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The more I am seeing of the The Rock in films the better he becomes, he will never be the next Laurence Olivier, but he is a fine actor!
Having seen the list of tripe listed as on tv this Christmas, I can see Netflix getting some additional visits!
Well I for one am please Verstappen won the championship!
Had my booster (Pfizer) last week, had a sore arm for about 36 hours
Doctor Who Flux is to Doctor Who what Star Trek Discovery is to Star Trek...
I'm like you... its a bit long an protracted, I don't mind a story over 2 or 3 episodes, but this is like a spin off mini series!

What concerns me more is the wife gave me a pass, without any discussion... think she is taking out an extra insurance policy on me!
That'll be me in February... first time skiing, wrong side of fifty, no sense of balance, what can possibly go wrong! ;-)
BTW Mark , oh really rubbish! Lol

A stent is now very common surgery,
However it is important, that the patient doesnt do any household chores for at least the next twenty years, and you must wait on him hand and foot!
Speedy recovery to Mr Brooky
So where are tv series such as...
Only Fools and Horses
Friends (not my choice!)
there are so many that are better than half those in the list

You can actually turn this function off... so they don't know you are ignoring them!
ooh... its yes from me!
Makes Captain Kirk the oldest human in space...
technically it is to the edge of space, all these companies stay within the earths exo-atmosphere!

think i'm still back on S6 or so
I hadn't read it as a legal requirement, but am happy to be corrected.
I can just see this being challenged in the courts, for unfair dismissal etc at some point, and the employers believing they have acted on legal advice?
thankfully I cannot see that happening here, although I guess it could always be a pre-requisite of employment for new employees?
I was so expecting this to be about Petrol delivered next day to your house.
Showing your age there, although i can remember my mum running her Renault 4 on Two Star
I reckon it's all Boris fault?
Well i ordered a new batch of 7 day LFT's.
When it arrived a week last Tuesday, it also contained a PCR test, as the NHS have just started efficacy testing.
I do twice weekly testing for work, even though i have no symptoms.
I've been doing LFT since last year, and am double vaccinated.
Test taken on the Tuesday, and LFT negative. Did PCR as requested and sent it off, got a result back the following Saturday morning, Positive!
Immediately did another LFT - negative.
Rang NHS helpline, and explained why i had taken test, they didn't know anything about the efficacy tests going on.
I asked if i should take another PCR, but was told no, Positive, is Positive, the test doesn't make mistakes? And anyway once you have tested Positive on a PCR, you cant do another for 90 days?
Wife and kids went to drive through for PCR - theirs came back negative.
So had to isolate for 10 days... Although by time results came back was already half way through!
Have also completed Antigen tests now... awaiting the results.
Fortunately I can work from home, so continued, the wife works in an Opticians, and was told because i tested positive she had to stay home also for 10 days.
The worry now is, no symptoms, LFT are continuing to be negative, yet the PCR was positive, so from today I can move about freely, and potentially for the next 80 days, any testing is ineffective!
So am I worried... not for me, or the wife and kids, but what about elderly relatives, or those with underlying health conditions?
Local band to me, hail from Teignmouth... have to say I couldn't name a single song by them, really not understood the hype behind them at all?
I'm seeing Idles on Thursday, looking forward to it, just had email asking ppl wear masks, and proof of covid jabs/negative tests required on entry.
Tickets for Troops had free tickets to see them...
Were they any good? They are playing Eden Project today, sadly sold out!
No doubt this will be blamed on Boris, or Brexit, or some conspiracy by The New World Order?
Sad news, RIP Sir Clive
undoubtedly we wouldnt be where we are today without great innovators like Sir Clive, who made computing accessible to the masses, i have many happy memories of tape games uch as Panama Jack, Track and Field, Hungry Horace goes skiing etc
Saturday 11th September - Lets Rock, at Powderham Castle.
