Re: Coronavirus

My concern with mandatory covid vaccination - at this point of time - is simply that we don't know if there are any long term issues post vaccination. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think there has -...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I've just started to re-watch A Touch Of Frost on Britbox. Still holds up as a great show.

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I remember that! I was "acquiring" the episodes as soon as they "appeared" online shortly after broadcast. Given the time difference it meant that I could usually get home and they would be ready to...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I re-watched it earlier in the week. Great movie, and I really do like HG's character, and some of the classic, and some would no doubt think very crude / offensive, lines he comes out with :D

Re: Coronavirus

I agree it does not make sense. I suspect some see it as some kind of government oppression. I'd suspect that these people are more than happy to tell others what to do, but when it comes to someone...

Re: Is this for real?

It looks like the email is dated October 10th and the thing was posted on that site on October 14, so it's not exactly something that is brand new. I'd expect if it was credible then major news...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I've had Britbox since April. The Apple TV app has improved somewhat since then, which was my main gripe about it. The content has always been pretty good. Spooks, Red Dwarf, Only Fools and Horses, A...

Re: Flights to/from Europe->Calgary

I don't think it really matters what type of trip you'd take, they could all be subject to cancellation at the airline's whim. Then you get the joy of trying to get your flight refunded if you don't...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

The Crown series 4 came out today. It's just about getting to the era where I start to actually remember the events that will be depicted. I shall schedule it for a binge session.

I also need to...

Re: Flights to/from Europe->Calgary

You're also at the mercy of the airline deciding to cancel the flight due to it being under-booked. There is quite a lot of that going on right now.
Personally I'd not be flying anywhere right now...

Re: Canada Post

There's other threads about CP during normal conditions, and it can be a bit hit and miss. However, you do need to factor in Covid, as delivery times are being affected by it. I've had things ship...

Re: US Election 2020 - Predictions

There's no way Trump will openly admit defeat. I'm sure he'll not concede, and he'll be going on and on about fraud, and the election being stolen.
I fully expect him to have to be physically...

Re: British family wanting to relocate to Canada

A direct flight from Toronto Pearson airport to / from Montego Bay is about 4 - 5 hours (based on flight times from April 2020).

Re: Celebrity Croakers 2020

Ah bugger it. A rather fine actor I feel. I did enjoy As Time Goes By, and it was great to see the spiky dialogue between him and Judi Dench in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Re: 2020 Flu Shot Thread

Until last year I'd never got the flu shot. I'm not anti-vax or anything like that, and I know I'm somewhat stupid not getting it, the whole herd immunity thing being a good thing. However, I'd never...

Re: Preschools in Ontario

As mentioned up-thread, for the majority pre-school isn't free here.
When my son was younger we did send him to the YMCA run pre-school programme, and it was excellent. We found it to be very...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

We watched that a little while back and did rather enjoy it. Quite a few twists and turns throughout.

Re: Desert Island Album

It might be obvious that I too love a bit of the Acid Jazz :) Another fave of mine is Corduroy.

Re: Desert Island Album

oooooo yeah. Love me a bit of JTQ. Seen them live a couple of times. James was kind enough to sign a CD for me at the last time I saw them :)

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

Binged "Snowpiercer" tv show over the weekend. I rather enjoyed the film, and so the show appealed. Obviously quite a few differences between both, but still rather good.

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

It's all about the Z'ha'dum :D

That reminds me I need to get back to B5. I was part way through it, probably season 3 or 4.

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I watched the mini series "Challenger: The Final Flight" the other night. Very good indeed, barring the loss of life involved.

I am midway though series 4 of Fringe, so I'm nearly done.
