Good morning folks, how is everyone doing?

It’s the first weekend of lockdown in the UK – it’s weird… but we are getting through it. Soon enough we will all be back outside, so stay strong – and start thinking about what you are going to do when things return to normal.

In the meantime, for those who have a spare ten minutes today, here is the latest edition of ‘Something to read when you’re bored’. It is filled with news, links to posts, and various random bits and pieces.




Great news for fans of ‘80s cartoons – Hasbro has uploaded a collection of G.I. Joe episodes to their YouTube channel, to watch FREE of charge. Various episodes are available for you to watch now, including The M.A.S.S. Device, The Pyramid of Darkness, and The Revenge of Cobra.

What’s on my plate?

You have asked me once again, so I simply have to answer – last night I had fish, chips and mushy peas on my plate!

The chips were homemade, while the fish came from the freezer. Those cheeky mushy peas came from a can that we had in the back of the cupboard.

The fish and chip shops might be closed in the UK, but that doesn’t mean I can’t improvise.

And finally, a few months ago I published a post about Ally McBeal. The post Why was Ally McBeal cancelled? …and other questions, looks at all the burning questions about the classic ‘90s series.


That’s all for today – enjoy your Sunday. And in the words of Jerry Springer, “look after yourselves, and each other”.
