I HEAR YOU LIZ ABOUT CORRIE  IT WAS. MUCH BETTER YEARS AGO THERE WAS SOME GOOD LAUGHS  BACK THEN 

HILDA AND STAN  AND JACK AND  VERA  TO NAME A FEW 😆
JEAN,  BACK WHEN  THE SHOW WAS MORE  REAL AND SO WERE THE PEOPLE.   THEN THEY TRIED  TO MAKE IT MORE AMERICAN  AND IT WENT DOWN HILL AFTER THAT.  LAST WK I WAS  WATCHING  EITHER  "HEARTBEAT" OR "MIDSUMMER MURDERS" AND HILDA WAS IN IT.   THOSE TWO SHOWS HAVE LOTS OF THE  OTHER  ACTORS IN IT FROM CORRIE ETC.   WISH THEY WOULD BRING BACK "FROST".  HOPE YOU ARE STILL HAVING A  GOOD TIME.  LIZ XXXXX

HI GIRLS, I'M SORRY I HAVEN'T POSTED IN A FEW DAYS, BUT BOBBY TOOK ME TO NIAGARA FOR A COUPLE OF DAY'S FOR MY BELATED B-DAY PRESENT. WE HAD A LOVELY TIME.   :)

JEAN,  YOUR WEATHER SOUNDS LOVELY, YOU'RE LUCKY YOU HAVE MISSED TODAY'S WEATHER, THE RAIN WAS VERY HEAVY TODAY BUT IT HAS CALMED DOWN NOW  AND WE DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL START AGAIN, THE FORECAST YESTERDAY WASN'T VERY GOOD,  WE HAVE A POOL AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR GARDEN BUT I'M GLAD THE WATER ISN'T CLOSE TO THE HOUSE. ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY AND SAY HI TO MORRIS  *

HI LIZ, I HOPE THIS WEATHER DOSEN'T CAUSE YOU MORE PAIN, THANKFULLY YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE RAIN.
I STILL WATCH THE WEEKS CORRIE ON SUNDAY NIGHTS BUT I CHEATED LAST WEEK AND WATCHED 2 EPISODES WHEN IT WAS ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS, AND I THOUGHT RITA WAS GOING TO DIE :(  SO I ONLY HAVE 3 EPISODES TO WATCH TOMORROW NIGHT. :D

I'M GOING TO CHECK A COUPLE OF THREADS AND THEN DECIDE WHAT'S FOR DINNER, TAKE CARE LOVE  :-**

JACKIE, SAFE JOURNEY TOMORROW FOR YOU & VI,  :-* :-*
BAD GIRL RUBY,  HA.  I HATE THEM FOR  CAUSING ME NOT TO WATCH CORRIE ANYMORE.   I KNOW THEY HAVE LOST SO MANY  VIEWERS BECAUSE OF IT.  I'M  GLAD  BOBBY TOOK YOU  FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY,  WHAT A NICE THING TO DO. AND YOU OR ANYONE ELSE  SHOULD  NOT HAVE TO APOLIGISE FOR NOT   POSTING,  PEOPLE  ARE BUSY AND SOMETIMES   THEY DON'T HAVE TIME  OR SOMETHING COMES UP THAT TAKES PRESIDENT OVER  POSTING.  YOU COME ON WHEN YOU HAVE  TIME.  SOMETIMES  I'LL ASK MY FRIEND ABOUT SOMETHING OR SOME ONE ON CORRIE BUT I CAN'T  WATCH IT SO I'LL GET IT FROM HER HA.     LIZ XXXXXX

::)  Suspected so,... no need for Starsky and Hutch nonsense back then.

https://youtu.be/MKB34LPhiGQ            https://youtu.be/_sg-2vtu0GE



There was also a very important real life Ontario connection with the series,...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Reilly_(harmonica_player)                    https://youtu.be/rL-PgmAd9vc

Dixon of Dock Green was one of my favourite TV police series, I say 'one of' for there were many and they were mainly British productions.

Dixon of Dock Green portrayed the type of policing of that era which sadly in this day and age no longer applies.

I find the Canadian Police system quite interesting in comparison to that in Australia in that in Canada a Province, city or town can have their own police force or they can contract out for a police force, say for example the RCMP or a Provincial Police Force.

Like many police forces around the world, if you go back in their history you will find an RUC influence and on the topic of 'Canada To-Day' the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary would be a good example.

Cheers.

As the Queen said in her media release, it is a complex situation and there are more issues to be addressed.

I thought your Prime Minister jumped the gun by offering to pay half of the couples security costs while they are in Canada given that they will be no longer royals but private citizens.

He'll ALWAYS be Royal,... whether officially or not,... and his ancestry can't be arbitrarily ignored or excluded,... by anyone, or for any reason,... and even Boris isn't dozy enough to take responsibility for putting him in any potential danger.

 I AM NOT IN FAVOUR OF THEM RECEIVING ANY MONEY  I JUST NEVER GOT A GOOD FEELING ABOUT HER 

MIXING WITH ROYALTY I WOULD IMAGINE IS TOTALLY  TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM  GLITCH AND GLAMOUR OF MOVIE

WORLD  AND MEGAN JUST COULD T HANDLE IT  BUT I HOPE THEY FIND WHATEVER IT IS THEY ( MEGAN ) ARE HOPING FOR 

THE WAY THEY HANDLED THEIR ( I THINK HER )DECISION WAS NOT IN A NICE WAY  . 

AND NOW THE TWO. BROTHERS ARE DRIFTING APART  SO SO SAD

HI ALL, I COULDN'T GET ON THE COMPUTER YESTERDAY, IT KEPT TELLING ME I NEEDED 'WINDOWS 10' AND I WAS AFRAID TO MESS AROUND WITH IT, I JUST CLOSED IT DOWN AND TODAY IT'S OK  ::) BOBBY DID SAY I MAY HAVE TO UPGRADE :-\

I DON'T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT HARRY & MEGAN, IT WAS THEIR DECISION TO MOVE TO CANADA AND I'M SURE THEY HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. I DON'T SEE WHY CANADA HAS TO SUPPORT THEM,  WE HAVE ENOUGH POOR PEOPLE IN NEED OF SUPPORT.

TALKING ABOUT THE ROYALS, WE'RE REALLY ENJOYING THE CROWN SERIES NOW THAT WE HAVE NETFLIX WITH NO ADVERTS :)

I HOPE EVERYONE IS WELL AND KEEPING WARM.   :-**

We are keeping warm here in my part of Australia, yesterday it was 43 C.!!!

A couple of topics in your above quote caught my attention,

Upgrading to Windows 10 - Have a browse through the Computers Thread in this Forum and you will see some discussions on the subject of upgrading to Windows 10.  I was in the same situation as you being on Windows 7 and read up on some of the pitfalls of upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 on a 10 year old computer; in the end I went out and bought a new computer which included Windows 10 (Home)

The Crown Series - My wife and I were both avid followers and are looking forward to the new series - I read that Gillian Anderson will play Margaret Thatcher, Gillian is a top actor and was awesome in the TV series The Fall.
