Any favourite TV shows? I've just been watching Yes Minister, a fabulous old British TV show. And yes, it is weird I love it.

Sounds like I have a lot more planning to do. 

Yeah, a bit. You have to buy the tickets through the National Trust as they bought both Forthlin Road and Yoko donated Mendips. They cost about £20 if I remember correctly. Well worth it though.

Zig – I want to wish you a grand trip (Oh, how I'm jealous!! Can I come as a stowaway?)
Also, if you're going to London, could you snap a picture of 221b Baker Street? I believe you know why.

If I pass by there, Watson, I will.

I may pass by if I decide to see 94 Baker Street, which is a more likely destination.

 Try Dad's Army, Fawlty Towers, On The Buses, The Two Ronnies and Flying Circus.

Not really my thing (except for Flying Circus, and this scene from Dad's Army:

)

but hopefully you'll like at least one if you like Yes Minister.

I actually adore Fawlty Towers - John Cleese is superb. I'll try the rest. Thanks!

Favorite TV Shows now? The Big Bang Theory. I adore Mayim Bialik, first because she's a fantastic actor and second, because she's an amazing role model for my students. There's a girl in my class who admires her and says she wants to get a PhD, just because Ms Bialik has one.

 

Zig I can't wait for your report on your Liverpool trip!! I hope I can go next year too!

 

And speaking of people we should look up to... Goodspeed Mr. Neil Armstrong, one of my Dad's favorite persons and a true, true hero. ahdn_george_05

Right on with The Big Bang Theory, Mith.
The Beatles and The Big Bang Theory together make up, like, my entire life. I also adore Mayim Bialik, but in my mind, Jim Parsons (who plays Sheldon Cooper) is the real hero. He is amazing in every which way possible. Practically all I say is "Bazinga" anymore.

One of my favourite tv shows, tho its not a comedy, is Only Connect, a quiz on BBC 4. In a day of dull quiz shows with multiple choice questions and/or basic level questions with loads of boring 'meet the players' chat here is a quiz where you feel so absolutely thrilled if you get even close to the answer and 2 minutes of chat at the start and its off you go. If you want to have a try at the 'The Wall' round you can here.

 

Was saddened to read of the death of Neil Armstrong. A trully inspirational man who leaves behind a legacy that will never fade.

I went to Reading Festival yesterday for the first time.

Very pleased to see The Horrors, Kaiser Chiefs, Two Door Cinema Club and Foo Fighters. I'd never heard of Django Django before, but they were excellent.

I also saw the Gaslight Anthem, but they were disappointing. I think they suffered from playing on the Main Stage rather than being in a tent with a better atmosphere.
Edit: I forgot the Joy Formidable, who were also incredible.

Highlight was probably the Kaiser Chiefs playing Pinball Wizard. You could close your eyes and imagine it was 1969.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

To go along with the whole "rockin' the college Algebraic scene" theme, I'm pretty confident I got a 100% on my first quiz today!! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

And that video was seriously one of the cutest things I've ever seen! I'm pretty sure it was impossible for me not to smile while watching that. ahdn_ringo_09

Can anyone help me out with something? I'm got this devilishly good portion of a song I can't identify playing in my head. It's the repetition of 4 words - My Baby Don't Care. It's not Ticket To Ride, but I can't remember the song. Anyone know what song I'm talking about?
Edit: Figgured it out - and the line is My Baby Don't Dance.
