For anyone in the U.S. not at all sure what this Doctor Who stuff's all about then it'll be coming your way on Friday nights in March.

Alya, here's more for your mental picture. His wife, Alice, was the british side of my family. Her parents were from Oldham, and she spoke with a distinct British accent. She was also about 4'11', and very regal in her tinyness, according to my mom!!!

Worktowander - Yes, you probably were thinking of Mr. Hooper. I remember that too.

I don't think the Snuffy thing bothered me because I was on my way out of Sesame Street by then.

I loved that show and it was fun watching it with my kids.... except now my youngest says he's too old to wear his Elmo T-Shirt to school. A sad moment for me!

Caroline, today a popped into the Dr Who exhibition,there were a few Daleks, a cyber man the Tardis and several other creatures, quite interesting and fun.
There was Dr Who filming with Cybermen outside a city centre pub the other day all the drinkers had a great bit of free entertainment.
SB, I think the blue salt bags have been stopped a long while now, not seen them at all.
Maybe someone can tell us if they have seen them.

Imprtant news. Pringles are saved. the Irish crispmongers Taytos have bought them. (The bloke on the Pringles tin looks like David Seaman).

Now to save the nik-nak.

Pringles are "saved"?! Surely, they're long beyond redemption.

Love the fact the there's at least 3 separate conversations going on here, and no one is the least bit fazed by it.

Very much like being down the pub with a group of mates, all talking over each other.

I adore nik-naks. I was so happy when they brought back the scampi & lemon flavour a while back.

I didn't know that Pringles were under threat though - that would be a disaster...

Yes, you can still get crisps with the little blue bag of salt, now made by Walkers (part of Pepsico) who took over Smiths a few years ago. I think they are called salt'n shake.

From being a good English Behaviour post, a subject I enjoy reading about, its turned into a argy bargy between many factions. Being Indian settled in UK, its similiar to us having a go at the Pak's and vice versa....fun but a little boring. Englishness can further be described or enjoyed through the institutional ''Shipping Forecast''. Anyone wanting to have a good laugh and spend some fun time on google....type shipping forecast into it. cheers
