congrats Granny - have five of them (both genders) so I know what you should expect.

Truthy - have to agree with you on the Ellis Peters thing (Phillip Madoc was so much more Cadfael than Derek Jacobi ever was) but for reading I prefer the "Shardlake" books.
I\'m NOT paranoid......thats just what THEY want you to think!!!

The thread should best be renamed It's New Year TeePee
Big Hello, huge 2018 greetings to you.
Thanks for your evaluations about Shardlake and Cadfael. Have been listening to Shardlake twice and getting on better w/it as a result.
Hope you and your "clan" are well and happy.
All kind regards.

Tell you what, Tru! If it's still going in April, you have my permission to change it to HAPPY EASTER.

Better late than never ...

HNY all, been a while since I've been here, and it's nice to see that things are still going!

Cheers, K

Heya Kron, great to hear from you.
And yes, all credit to RICK that the good ship Beebotron is afloat and well.

And thank you Jan for the "my dear". Those words always fill parts of me with a gooey type glow.

Always knew you were the crunchy-creme-filled kind.  ;)



I have to listen to Shardlake (and I thought it might be the one, Tallforaduck, after I'd posted) many times before I finally "get" it, but it's usually worth it. The stories are good, but there as a LOT of information being given and I never, ever get it all first time around.



I didn't catch Pale Horse this time, but I have heard it quite a few times. I always enjoy the Christies. And I really wish they'd do more Cadfael.

I'll definitely check out the Sam Cooke. Thanks for that! :)



Listening to the 50 Years of Just a Minute at the moment. :)  Also, saw a couple of Stone episodes....don't know if they are repeats or not....but I'll find out.



I listened to a Book at Bedtime, How to Stop Time, or something like that, which managed to hold my interest. Also, going to give Vital Spark a go.  So I've found a few things. Still, nothing compared to previous years. :(

Thank you, Teepee! I'm really excited. :D


And HELLOOOO K!  I was just thinking of sending you an, "I'm alive...are you?" message. Hope all is well.


I also need to send Robert an e-mail and tell him how much I enjoyed the final Pillow Book.  I'm gonna miss that one, terribly. :(

Shardlake ep 9 .... and just as I thought I'd vaguely, very vaguely mind, managed to stay abreast ... then woooops back to starting point, find I've twigged to ABSOLUTELY NOWT!

The adaptation is utterly chaotic and quite beyond my grasp!

Sigh!

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

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.
