Sounds nice. I'm happy with tomato sauce.

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 06:49 PM

Yeah it wasn't bad!

tamobhuuta 28-12-2018 06:52 PM

Any plans for this evening?

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 06:53 PM

Just watching tv
Nothing exciting

tamobhuuta 28-12-2018 07:00 PM

Me too

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 07:18 PM

I am sleepy

chinahorse 28-12-2018 07:39 PM

There's nothing on tv!

tamobhuuta 28-12-2018 07:42 PM

Oh no!

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 07:47 PM

It is a bit rubbish tonight!

zombiehunter 28-12-2018 07:49 PM

sharknado is on the horror channel at 9pm

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 07:51 PM

Ooo I love sharknado!!
Don't think I can get the horror channel though

nonperson 28-12-2018 07:52 PM

Iron Man 2 is on now too.

nonperson 28-12-2018 07:54 PM

Oh and Eddie the Eagle is on at 8pm. Watched that ages ago and it was quite funny.

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 07:54 PM

I've seen the iron man films soo many times!

I'm watching journey 2

nonperson 28-12-2018 07:57 PM

There’s always Terminator 2 on at 9 as well.

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 08:00 PM

I'll probably be in bed by then!
But I do like the terminator films

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 08:00 PM

You can probably get horror channel Beckie as it is available on freeview, Freesat and sky. Probs available on virgin too.

chinahorse 28-12-2018 08:00 PM

I don't like those sort of films tbh

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 08:02 PM

It's on virgin too 149.

nonperson 28-12-2018 08:03 PM

What would be your film genre of choice instead, Lillie?

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 08:04 PM

My TV decided to delete a load of random channels so I dont have all the freeview channels anymore

chinahorse 28-12-2018 08:07 PM

Oh how rude of it beckie!

I like kids films and comedy but not slapstick. I liked the greatest showman which is what I watched last.

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 08:08 PM

I know!

I loved the greatest showman

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 08:11 PM

I like kids films too. Most of the films in my DVD collection are u or pg rated.

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 08:12 PM

Lillie do you like Keeping Up Appearances?

nonperson 28-12-2018 08:15 PM

Can you rescan your tv channels, Beckie?

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 08:16 PM

Tried that np
Didn't work

nonperson 28-12-2018 08:18 PM

That’s so odd. Do TVs have a hard reset setting?

nonperson 28-12-2018 08:18 PM

Actually maybe it’s your aerial rather than the tv...

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 08:24 PM

I have no idea!
Its ok though.
Cant think of any channels I really miss
Except Dave.
Although I do have Dave Ja Vu

nonperson 28-12-2018 08:46 PM

Ah that’s not so bad then.

I can’t rescan my freesat box so have lost loads of channels too. And freeview is really patchy signal and isn’t strong enough to pick up any HD channels.

Modern problems, huh?

Cacoethes 28-12-2018 08:54 PM

I remember the days of only 5 tv channels.
And I could never get channel 5 to work!

nonperson 28-12-2018 08:55 PM

Hard to imagine what it was like when I think back. We’re so spoiled nowadays...

nonperson 28-12-2018 08:56 PM

Wow, Channel 5 started in 1997.

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 09:15 PM

If you think that is bad try living in Wales. 3 English channels. S4c was in Welsh most of the day with English programmes after 10pm. Most channel 4 programmes I never got to see. No channel 5. S4c stopped transmitting at midnight.

nonperson 28-12-2018 09:20 PM

I wasn’t saying it was bad. Just commenting on how different things are now.

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 09:24 PM

Yeah I get it. Life is different now. When I was growing up you didn't have games consoles until I was ten. Now these days kids have all sorts of technology.

nonperson 28-12-2018 09:27 PM

I’ve never had a game console!

(Random outburst, sorry)

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 09:38 PM

I think that kids shouldn't be allowed online until they are in secondary school let alone mobiles or tablets. Even kiddies toys do too much for them don't let them use their imagination.

nonperson 28-12-2018 10:00 PM

I don’t know if being that extreme is the answer. It’s just got to be a balance. Keeping children away from mobiles, tablets or any modern technology is not as easy as it sounds.

not_so_insig 28-12-2018 10:13 PM

Yeah it's a difficult one. That's why I am glad that I don't have any kids. Life is different now.

nonperson 28-12-2018 10:32 PM

Well I’ve seen my friend’s child growing up with technology all around and it’s really not doing her any harm. It’s hard not to negatively judge what it’s like growing up now compared to 30 years ago but I don’t think it’s any worse, it’s just different. And a lot of it is down to the parents, not that technology is more advanced and available.

Very much agree. Plus there's been some studies that playing educational games and such on an Ipad or whatever which are touch screen can positively impact dexterity and the ability to identify different colours and so on more quickly. Only time will tell I think.

chinahorse 29-12-2018 09:02 AM

Well said buttons!

Good morning guys.

nonperson 29-12-2018 09:14 AM

Morning everyone.

chinahorse 29-12-2018 09:18 AM

Morning, how's you np?

I think my kitty got a good night's sleep. He's like the energiser bunny!

nonperson 29-12-2018 09:21 AM

I'm still sleepy but need to get myself together to go out to the bank. >.<

How're you?

Mine was super hungry this morning and now he's disappeared!

chinahorse 29-12-2018 09:26 AM

I do need to go out too but I can't until my deliveries have come. Maybe going out will wake ypu up a bit?

Gone to hunt more food? Mines too busy playing to be bugging me for more food yet.

nonperson 29-12-2018 09:28 AM

Yeah it probably will wake me up.

I hadn't thought that! Yes he probably has gone out to hunt more food. Intercepted him trying to bring in a mouse yesterday.

chinahorse 29-12-2018 09:30 AM

Oh dear. Does he bring things in often?

I sometimes this mine may be a good hunter. Then he runs face first into the window for the 800th time and I reconsider.
