The Pub - Open All Hours / Re: Hellooooo......are you there?
« on: June 13, 2018, 07:27:49 PM »
I love the ones you can listen to and do something else...which at the moment is finishing a crocheted baby blanket for the young'n (due July 4th, if you please :) ) It's of my own design, so no pattern. It's black with golden stripes at the bottom and bumble bees with a golden stitched flight path for each. Those bumbles are given me fits! I've had to do at least three prototypes before settling on the current design. But old fingers no longer obey me, as they once did...making it an unholy slog, some days...but, hopefully, worth it, in the end.

I had not grabbed the journalist program, so a link would be gratefully accepted, when you get the chance.

Sounds like you've found an absolute haven, Tru. I'm so happy you've found some comfort and it sounds absolutely glorious...except for the unfortunate circumstances of some of the residents. Way too much of that in this world. And we are of less help than usual, of late. We did precious little before, now it's practically non-existent. Puerto Rico is still waiting for power. Absolutely shameful.

The family sitch is about the same. Half of us are insane and the other half hate that orange bastard. 

We're hoping for some relief in the mid-terms (November). If we can change the balance of power in Congress, we have a chance of preventing the wack jobs from destroying civilization. Pray for us.



The King is better?!!!  :D  Thank God! Tell him, "Le Meow....Le Purr", from me and send him the slow blink of love and approval of his beauty and awesomeness, as well.  We have a new group of kittens....too cute...but only a few to try and home, so....progress!

Breathing was not too bad, but it heated up the last few days, here, so it's kinda screwy at the moment. Supposed to cool down in a few days, so hopefully better then.

Well...that's the highlights, I guess.

Talk soon....

Glad you're well, IE. Yeah, I miss the hustle and bustle as well. :(  Hard to get into it when there isn't much radio worth talking about. :( 

Hey, Miss Thang! Sounds like you're soldiering on. Atlas? Like in the mountain range?  Oooooh, that sounds pretty awesome. :) Glad you'r finding some respite.

As for here, we've actually been spared....so far. Only one day over 100F so far...but the flesh melting heat is coming. Nature of the beast, I'm afraid.


Not listening to anything in particular. Sort of into the Death in Ice Valley podcast, which is kind of intriguing, but not really your cuppa, I would guess. I'm on Spotify, too. Are you using your own name? If so, I'll see if I can find you and follow you like a stalker. :P

Just discovered BBC is on there, the other day, but having dug into it yet.

You listening to anything interesting? That's for either of you, by the way....or anyone else out there. ;)

I know someone who just got a hold of some transcription discs of The Good Show. I don't listen to that one, often, but I know many here do. I was wondering if the ones he has are already in the BBC's Archives. If not, they may be interested in getting some copies from him.

This is what he says he has:

 93/94- The Fireball Of Milton Street/Forog, 99/100- The Jet-Propelled Guided Naafi/The Nadger Plague, 91/92- The Booted Gorilla/The Spanish Suitcase, 97/98- Seagoon M.C.C./The Secret Escritoire, 89/90- Lurgi Strikes Again/The Last Tram, 107- The Great Statue Debate (one sided with beautiful etching on b-side!), 101/102- The Great Bank Robbery/What's My Line?, 103/104- The Telephone/Emperor Of The Universe, 105/106- The Histories Of Pliny The Elder/The Thing On The Mountain, 95-96- The Six Ingots Of Leadenhall Street/Yehti, 87/88 (Christmas Edition)- Ye Bandit Of Sherwood Forest/The Dreaded Batter Pudding Hurler

I'm here!  Not too often, anymore, as I have a steaming pile of life going on right now...and for a long while now....but I AM here. :)

I know Tru has been having health issues, poor thing. We commiserate on FB occasionally.

How are you? :D

I don't recognize it, SK. If you DO find out will you let us know? I"d be interested. :)

R4 Extra (The Station Formerly Known As R7) Matter / Re: Stoned!

I like it all right. Not beating down the door to get to it, though. I think I'd have to agree it took a long time to tell a story that could have easily been done it two or three episodes. :/

You're way too kind.  :)

By the by, I just twigged onto the fact that The Pale Horse you were telling me about is a new production. Duh. Sorry I didn't get that before. Told ya...I'm a numpty.

I do the absolute same thing. There is soooo much info, it's almost impossible to grab it all in one go. Once you listen a few times it really does make perfect sense, to me anyway.  Besides....what else are ya' gonna listen to? :P

12
Lol...no. I'm just an idiot. :P  I never even got that far. We had talked on the other thread about it, and numpty me didn't bother reading the whole post.

Sorry about that. :/

Don't know if you're into that sort of thing, but they have Colin Thubron on Bookclub talking about In Siberia.

(James Naughtie and a group of readers talk to travel writer Colin Thubron about In Siberia)

Thank you, Tru. I'll check it out. :)
