Dr Who Series Eight: Episode 10 — In The Forest Of The Night

The Doctor and Clara (Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman)
 watching the world go by
25th October, 2014

You know, I’m starting to think I’m impressed … 

No, wait, scrub that bit out: I know I’m impressed … !

Possibly even VERY impressed.   Although I’ll have to say, that MAY be overstating it.

But maybe not … 

You know, you can tell it’s Saturday night, can’t you?

And you can tell I’ve just come away from tonight’s episode of Dr Who, can’t you … ?

Yeah … 

I thought you might … 


The Daily Teaser — 25-10-2014

 Right … 

The clocks go back, tonight.

Now, I know we’ve been doing it for years: the twice yearly movement of the clocks, backwards and forwards.

But I, personally, could never put my finger on why it happens.

Oh, we’ve been told it’s to help farmers.   Or hinder them.   Or that — like pub opening hours — it’s a leftover from World War 1.

Who knows.

Either way … ?

Well, either way, it happens.

I’m personally just glad near enough every clock I have, changes automatically!

The Friday Question Set — 24-10-2014

Right … 

That’s December’s Teaser’s done.

Oh, lord, not the Daily Teaser’s!

I’m not THAT far ahead of myself!

I have, however, managed to get this December’s done: for my local paper.

I can’t wait to see how well they do.


The Daily Teaser — 24-10-2014: The United Nations

Blimey, but it’s Friday.

No, really … !

And I’m STILL working on the family laptop … !

Basically, I’ve now got the back-ups software set up: CrashPlan in case you’re interested.    I should be able to find instructions my mother and sister would understand.

All I have to do now, is shift various iTunes libraries: and we’re laughing!

Oy, Vey!

The Daily Teaser — 23-10-2014: Uncivil Affairs

Right … 

That’s THAT done … !

You’ve possibly noticed I try and do stuff to keep myself occupied, don’t you … ?

The project for the past couple of days?

Has been to do stuff with the family laptop.

I’ve FINALLY managed to get some back up software installed — the free version of CrashPlan, which I’m told is relatively easy to use, for end-users — and I’m now looking at transferring my Mum and my older sister, Anna’s, stuff over to the external drive.

Once THAT’S done … ?   Well, once that’s done, we get done to the fun stuff, syncing up iPods, iPads and iPhones.

A big brother’s job is neither done … !
