I totally forgot to tell you this, but on Nov. 23, Yahoo! had a Doctor Who icon; it showed the Tardis spinning through the word Yahoo, and when it go to the end, it turned into the exclamation point. I understand Google has several Doctor Who doodles. One that I saw had all the Doctors running along the top of the word Google.

My husband said he was going to ban bing because it was the only one who didn't celebrate Dr Who's 50th anniversary.
Sounds like I should check out Dr. Who! I honestly never heard of it before I read about it here. We haven't watched any TV shows (besides Little House on the Prairie and Waltons on DVD) for over 10 years, but now we have Netflix and I noticed they had Dr. Who.

I can only dream that I could afford to see it at Comic-Con lol.
Yeah, we got to see it in 3D at a local theater, there was a website that showed what theaters it could be found in, as it was a limited release. I a bit more than I would normally pay for a movie, but it was 3D, that the two kids and one senior ticket were a bit cheaper helped lol. Normally we only go to matinees, but this was a once in a life time event, and it was sold out. I found out about it from a Facebook Doctor Who group I'm in. So we had three generations of Doctor Who fans go
Dad and I discovered it back in the Tom Baker days on PBS, and then another PBS station started showing the 1st - 4th, and the other one from the 4th - 7th. Our kids have watched some of the classics, but not all - not even close, just the handful on Netflix, for now. They seen up through what's on Netflix/Hulu of the new, so they still need to see the last half of the most recent season.
Just a word of caution to those wanting to discover Doctor Who, there are two spin off shows, the Sarah Jane Adventures, geared toward kids and wonderful, featuring one of the all time favorite companion of most fans, Sarah Jane Smith. Then there's Torchwood, which features Captain Jack, a character from New Doctor Who. It is NOT family friendly. He is really funny, BUT has extremely loose morals (putting it mildly), which is mentioned briefly in Doctor Who, but is shown in Torchwood - I regret watching it at all.
We'll be watching The Sound of Music on Thursday. Eileen saw the ad and we need to make sure we're home from Cub Scouts on time that night. I watched the Making of on Hulu (computer only, can't access it through the Wii), and was tearing up while they were going through the kids' auditions and I rarely ever cry watching anything. I played in the pits for a local theater production of The Sound of Music (and Camelot and Annie) many summers ago. It was a lot of fun. Dress rehearsals were always the best - the cast kept trying to crack each other up. Funniest moment, Maria's entrance for the wedding - with a pillow stuff under her dress lol.
OOoo I forgot about the 3D showing. Then too the closest place for me to see it probably would have been Portland.
But as I do have ALL the others, well those that still have video, (and all of Sarah Jane) you should come out for a visit and watch them begining to end. It should only take about 6 months... if you don't mind going without much sleep.
As for the online Icons, I will keep me Puppy if you don't mind. But..... I do have a sonic screwdriver.
I think the icons were on the website for the 50th anniversary though I'm sure you could get one for an avatar if you wanted, but I would totally be discombobulated if you switched your avatar Pup... Unless you switch it to a curmudgeonly pup
So Shari, does that mean you're coming to WNY after cub scouts to watch it with me? I know Amy is planning on watching it. I'm tivoing it. I wonder if we could watch together on Hangouts or Skype. I'd be willing to watch it twice. What time zone are you in Shari? Eastern or Central?
Oh and I took the plunge despite my fears and my first picture book is on Amazon and CreateSpace. Https://
It's called Tie My Shoe and Rachel's the illustrator. If anyone does buy it, I'd be so grateful for a fair and honest review on Amazon. It's an ABC book geared for ages 3 to 6 (give or take a year or two).
Becky where for art though? I miss you.
I'm one of the few who have never seen Dr. Who!
I'm so proud of you, Shann, for doing the book! In fact, it will be my "T" post for the alphabet blog meme this week. Just in time, for I could not think of something that began with T that would be interesting, and then your announcement came on Facebook. YAY!
Ahh Barb thanks. It was scary. I had to have Amy submit it for me because I freaked out whenever I tried to. Nice to have friends who love me despite my quirkiness. (that includes all of you BTW)
If I had the TARDIS, I'd take both Pup and you up on that lol. We can't record it, so we'll have to watch it live, or on Hulu the next day, assuming it will load, since the making of is on there.
Congrats on the book!
I don't think I would fit into the phone booth thingies... If you did manage to cram me in with you and Pup I think my claustrophobia would take hold. Of course that would give Pup an excuse to smack me in the head...
Right now I'm feeling pretty miserable. Stupid shingles. Plus kids will be home soon and the house is upside down. Still no sink in bathroom plus we're switching rooms around so the new mattress will be back in the bigger room. Q used to have a room in basement but it would flood so we switched things around. Now that everyone is pretty much gone I want bigger room back. I'm hoping to feel well enough to paint it and the bathroom. There is so much stuff to do and I feel horrible.
Here is link for my book in case anyone wants to buy one. We are working on converting it to an ebook too and by we I mean Amy! https://www.createspace.com/4544087
Starting count down to the Sound of Music! Hmm let's see how my math is with this horrible headache. 11hours, 17 minutes now, but I need to wait until 11:11:11
So I'll serande you all... Good thing you can't hear me since I can't carry a tune in a bucket!
Doe a deer a female deer
Ray a drop of golden sun
Me a name I call myself
Fa a long long way to run
Sew a needle pulling thread
LA a note to follow so
Tea a drink with jam and bread
And that brings us back to Doe again and to 11:11:11
Now Shann, the Tardis is dimentionally transindental.. meaning it is bigger on the inside, and even as an exploding sun inside as a power source. I am pretty sure it woulkd have room enough for little ole you. Actually there have been a few in the past who actually got lost in there.
And Red.... if you had a Tardis, You better come get me. That would definately be a reason for hunting you down.
