The Daily Teaser — 6-7-2014

It’s Sunday … 

Isn’t it … ?

Yes, it is.

Which, of course, means it’s the day before Monday: and when I find out whether I’m getting anything from the Hardship Fund.

I’m nervous: and worried.   And angered by how it’s happened.

Something my regular readers will know.

At ANY rate … ?   I’m having a bunch of mixed feelings.

But know I’ve done everything I can to make sure things go in my favour.

It’s in either the lap of the gods … or the Department of Work and Pensions.


At any rate, before we move on?

I’ll embed these two versions of the newest Dr Who teaser trailers: and have to ask … what on Earth is that voice … ?


Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video …

I’ll leave you with a tune from Bill Haley and the gang … 

And this thought …
“I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.”
Frida Kahlo July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954.
Enjoy the day.

*        Seems a good motto to me!
