    While I, over the period of time I've spent caring for my Mum since she's moved in, have learned that the only thing of real value is time itself. I learned that today when "my first day off in almost 40 days" ended up being spent on "household admin." instead of maybe a bit of wee shopping for myself. Doing some things that I was really looking forward to (but had to get dumped so other things got attended to instead) and maybe taking myself out for lunch to start a new book I've been waiting 7 mo. to get my hands on.... Oh well. It will all still be there when the time finally does present itself. And every time she tells me she loves me.... it's OK.

    Sorry bout the winning guys. It's late, we have a waaaay toooo early Dr. appt. for her that's been booked since last Oct. Because it's just that hard to get. So I'm exhausted, have to get both of us up and out of the house in rush hour traffic and make sure she gets breakfast & her morning meds before we go.......

    :emoji_baby: whining baby that I am! :emoji_angel: the angel I'm trying to be for my Mom (because she deserves no less) :emoji_bow: the prayers I hope someone is listening to because I just cannot keep doing this alone. :emoji_dancers::emoji_dancers::emoji_dancers::emoji_dancers: the dancing bunnies that get me up in the morning with a smile....
    and which I always associate with you guys..... my lifeline back to the world where other people live, communicate, and try to boost each other up a bit when they can. So thanks for being here alla'y'all!!! I keep coming back for the hope you give me and I've never failed to find it.

    I get riled up during those episodes. My issue is that the setup is always the same. The young woman is out there, claiming that some guy is the father of her child, and there are no other possibilities. The guy comes out to jeers from the crowd, who would lynch him on the spot if they could. Then, the majority of the time, the results come up, and he's not the father. It ends with the guy still hated by the crowd for being a guy, and the woman crying and being consoled by Maury. The only time I watch those episodes is so I can feel better about myself.

    Also, it should also be pointed out, the guys they usually bring out are not top shelf examples of humankind, but to be brought out on national television and get the reaction they get just irks me.

    Anyone see Inside no.9 this Xmas just gone? It was a cracker .Pemberton and Shearsmith are geniuses. Luckily its on youtube, small picture, but do yourself a favour if you've not seen it.

    Yeah, the whole series is very good.

    The last episode about the shoe was rather brilliant.

    John Cheese will be making a new sitcom with the BBC for the first time since Fawlty Towers.

    The show will be called Edith and will focus on his romance with the titular character played by Alison Steadman.

    That's exciting news. Cleese is still a very funny fellow, and I eagerly await this new project.

    Loved James Bolam in The Likely Lads, Only When I Laugh, and recently discovered the Bierdebeck Trilogy, which was an Alan Plater comedy /drama series with the delectable Barbara Flynn.

    I remember first seeing him in ONLY WHEN I LAUGH as a kid. I really enjoyed that TV program.

    However, I'll always remember him as Jack Ford in WHEN THE BOAT COMES IN. I enjoyed that TV show so much, I bought the DVD box set. It must be nearly time for another re-watch. :emoji_relaxed:

    Spaced was great. Doesn't seem to get the love it deserves.

    Didn't know really where to put this thread, so here it is.
    Anyone watch the BBC quiz show Only Connect with Victoria Coren Mitchell? It's really a great idea, original, and makes you dig deep mentally to answer a single question. The Eggheads team, top quizzers themselves with their own show, entered a team in this and got well beaten.

    I have to be in the mood to watch it (due to its cerebral nature) but it can be a lot of fun
