It takes a bit of getting used. She is a good actress and this is a bit of a dparture for her. I like the thought-provoking subject matter of each episode, and while this in on Sunday evenings on the BBC, Drama are showing all the David Tennent and Billie Piper series, 2005 - 2010, double bill on Saturday nights - smashing!

So, I have always read whining here in the states. But, I see our friends in UK, Australia write Whinging. So, it's just a case of place perhaps.
For example, I have always read the past tense of spell is spelled. Perhaps is is vernacular or regional.


in Uk whining and whinging are not the same word. It is not a regional variation. The only way I can explain it is that whinging is whining with knobs on! whining rhymes with lining, whinging with binging.

Spelt or spelled is acceptable here. I don't thing bullshit would be catagorised as swearing, rather more just unpleasant language.

I think that's one of the funniest I've seen - glad I wasn't drinking anything at the time!

Even when I was a kid in the 40's - Father Xmas left bits and pieces in the stocking at the bottom of the bed, fruit, sweeties, new knickers,
a pair of gloves, plasticine etc. The 'main' present was opened later, usually in front of the entire family and we knew it was from Mum and Dad (or whoever) and let's face it little ones see so much on media they must know what's what even at a very young age! I remember one year I could only afford 2nd hand stuff for my kids (aged 1 up to ten) I didn't get any complaints. I got them all promotional T-shirts from the garage at a really good price and they all loved them, and wore them all holiday!

Just a little reminder how ridiculous society has become.....

Since some radio stations decided to pull “Baby it’s Cold Outside” from its playlist because someone was offended, shouldn’t these songs be pulled as well????

1. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: subjecting minors to softcore porn
2. The Christmas Song: Open fire? Pollution. Folks dressed up like Eskimos? Cultural appropriation
3. Holly Jolly Christmas: Kiss her once for me? Unwanted advances
4. White Christmas? Racist
5. Santa Claus is Coming to Town: Sees you when you’re sleeping? Knows when you’re awake? Peeping Tom stalker
6. Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Everyone telling you be of good cheer? Forced to hide depression
7. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Bullying
8. It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas: Forced gender-specific gifts: dolls for Janice and Jen and boots and pistols (GUNS!) for Barney and Ben
9. Santa Baby: Gold digger, blackmail
10. Frosty the Snowman: Sexist; not a snow woman
11. Do You Hear What I Hear: blatant disregard for the hearing impaired
12. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas: Make the yuletide GAY? Wow, just wow
13. Jingle Bell Rock: Giddy up jingle horse, pick up your feet: animal abuse
14. Mistletoe and Holly: Overeating, folks stealing a kiss or two? How did this song ever see the light of day?
15. Winter Wonderland: Parson Brown demanding they get married…forcpartnership.
16. Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer: Woman attacked & Grandpa gambling.

Such a shame some good, long-time songs have been ripped apart, dissected and attacked ~

why has 'baby it's cold outside' been banned?

They were all smiling (apart from the Trumps) when President Bush gave Mrs Obama a sweet. We were lucky enough to have the whole ceremony live on BBC, with highlights later in the afternoon.

I watched parts of the eulogy and was in tears when George Bush Jr broke down and cried. I never thought too much about Bush Sr. as a president but I appreciated his sense of humor and dedication.

Note: Why is that inaugurations and anything of significant political or national attention is always aired during Let's Make a Deal and Price is right?


Assuming it was live, I doubt the organiser thought of that. It was on live on the BBC News channel from start to finish.

I use magic knot only when working with 100% natural yarn like wool or alpaca. Don’t do it with Superwash wool either. It will unravel unless the yarn has fibers that cling together.


Funny that - I only ever use acrylic or nylon and I've never had any trouble with magic knots.

There will be only three adults at our house Christmas Day, including SIL, and we will probably "nosh" all afternoon while watching Christmas movies. Since my partner's leg has become increasingly more painful (her 1st surgery--finally!!--is on the 27th), we've decided to forego a full-scale Christmas Dinner, and go instead with just finger foods. On our list so far are shrimp, whitefish salad/crackers, hummus, peanut-butter-stuffed celery, olives, baby carrots, (no eggs, SIL has allergy!) etc., with appropriate dips, but these sound boring to me. I'm looking for other simple-to-make, quick protein ideas. We only eat turkey, chicken, and fish, but I don't know where to look to find these in finger food recipes. Then I thought of KP. Should not have bothered wasting time on Google, and come here first!! Would love some of your suggestions!!

Please and thank you...

Have you checked out Pardise Recipes? Should get some ideas from there.

This makes me so sad. I didn't agree with his politics but never doubted his patriotism, honor, or commitment to the American people. He was a decent man and was such a loving husband to Barbara. He will be missed terribly by his family and friends.


and his dog.......

David Attenborough is loved and respected by people who have our planet's future in mind when we go about our everyday business. Will some of the people he speaks to in Poland take in anything he's saying? They, or their government/leaders have their own vested interests, hiding behind patriotism and the wellbeing of their courntymen - more like their total disinterested in the future of the planet and the interest in their personal power and the lining of their pockets.

I wonder whether, when standing by my bins trying to make out if 'it' is single use or recyclable, if the White House, The Kremlin, The Imperial Palace, Westminster etc. is doing the same? Answers on a postcard please.

Poland's coal mining is mammoth, I doubt they can stop - they'd go bankrupt - but a plan for changing in the future would be seen as a step forward. There are other's dependant on coal production - US, Germany etc etc - some movement from from would perhaps help.

Depressed, but ever hopeful, Carol

Love the colours! 1898 hats are addictive. I just bundled up 27 of them, plus 18 pairs of gloves and 8 scarves - all in different colours, men's women's and childrens, all in acrylic yarns.
All ready to take to The Sally Army tomorrow!

Much as I'm trying not to use Amazon I have ordered it on kindle from them.
