Welcome to our forums.

What are you up to today.......

It’s been raining cats and dogs today so I just spent a dry afternoon watching the film “The Imitation Game” starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

My last birthday outing was spent at Bletchley Park and my ticket is still valid until next July. No doubt I will be visiting Bletchley again, especially now I have seen the film and the background info on the Enigma machine.

Having seen photos of Alan Turing, I would have cast Rory Kinnear rather than Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing. The former had a supporting role in the film but not a box office draw, unlike Benedict Cumberbatch.

That’s nice. I don’t think we can ever tire of dolphins frolicking in the water.

I have been at my late Mothers house, as an Antique Agent was picking up the last of the antiques as hopefully we have sold the house. Whilst I was waiting I saw a lovely display by the dolphins who seem to love our stretch of coast..

Thank you @coolonespa. You’re right. And hopefully, our presence at this time comfort her.

I have a weird way of coping with losses. I love to be alone and do some long drives. Today I did that as an ode to my friend. We use to drive around and talk thru radios. Now though, I had a really quiet ride. But I feel better. It’s like honoring our tradition together.

lost a dear friend

Sorry to hear about that, these things are never easy but any support you show will (I’m sure) be gratefully received.

As for me, I’m looking into going back to Sri Lanka. They are so heavily dependant on tourism and there is a strong push to get people to go back. Selective Asia are offering an unprecedented destination-wide discount to help support Sri Lanka – to do this, they have arranged a 20% discount on all new bookings for holidays to Sri Lanka taken prior to 30 June 2020.

Seems like an offer too good to miss and I can do some good at the same time. Let the planning commence.
