New star trek discovery is amazing ! ... See MoreSee Less
2 episodes in ..and this is what star trek is meant to be 😁
I like it too. It's so different from all other Star Treks. I like that it's episodic. I'm anxious to see where it's going and how they will incorporate the Klingons.
I love it so far. But episode 4 did leave me wondering if the quality might be starting to drop. Hope not!
Just finished the third ep. I have something to talk about but am worried about spoiling it for anyone. I hate spoilers.
Go on then
Just styart with 'WARNING SPOILERS'
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS. It completely blew my mind that Michael is Spock's foster sister.
And Sarek seems to be nicer to Michael than he is to Spock (as we know) so wondering what Michael does to make Sarek change

Just watched naturalist Chris Packham’s program ‘Asperger's and Me’. Having been diagnosed with autism in March this year - after a lifetime of struggling with the social world and all my many, many odd thoughts, behaviours, disabling anxieties, and other difficulties - it was like someone switching on a light. Nice to see Chris Packham being so open about the condition. I’ve not overtly broadcast my diagnosis, although a few people know. To be honest, I’ve been very angry and it's a taken this last six months to accept it properly. I’ve never believed in excuses but knowing about my condition has allowed me to contextualise many of the things that have always perplexed me. Luckily, I’m high-functioning - one of the 14% with autism who can hold down a full-time job. And I have found the loverly Suzanne who amazingly doesn’t seem to notice my multitudinous flaws. I suppose I’m coming to terms with it and the effect it’s had on my life. But, unlike Chris, I think I would get rid of it if I could. But it’s still all a bit raw. Maybe that will change with time. If you’ve not seen the programme, it's on BBC iPlayer - BBC2 - I’d certainly take a look. ... See MoreSee Less
Watched this on iPlayer last night. I don’t know very much about it, (have a little knowledge from chats with my sister in law as my nephew has autism). It was truly enlightening. I admire both yours and Mr Packhams openness and honesty on Aspergers and autism - more awareness and understanding can only be a good thing. 👍👍👍
As the wife of an aspie, this documentary really got to me because it was so candid and his bravery in making it is immense. My husband is 51 and had his diagnosis about 2 years ago and still gets the feelings of anger occasionally, although he is slowly coming to terms with it. Much love Kevdude. X
Thanks for your openness Kev! I think more people should talk about it! You have all my support! 🍀❤️💪
So glad you posted this, I'd been meaning to watch it. I am being assessed for Asperger's later this month and need to have my dad with me when I go. Unfortunately he had a stroke a couple of weeks ago. So I guess I need to ring them and explain.
Dude, it’s not autism - you’re from Ripon aren’t you? Ha ha. I’m just about to watch this. He’s fascinated me for years. I finally realised why when he ‘came out’ a couple of years back. I know your anger. I felt massively let down by the education system for a start. As for pursuing my assessment, I felt like some kind of circus animal having to jump through hoops. My first ‘case worker’ suggested I may be a spoilt child who has never grown up. That was followed by being given wrong, potentially life-threatening information. That’s when I started kicking doors down rather than knocking at them. Anyway, you’re just as unusual as you suspected. Welcome to the club!
Lots of love KJ Heritage. Hope all is well.
Classic. Love it.
I watched it for the first time last week. Incredible film, even if that extended dance number near the end about the budding dancer made little sense to the overall story. If you have the DVD, it's well-worth watching it again with the optional inspirational segments.
One of my favorites!

Just a Reminder to watch Today's Episode
Star Trek Discovery ... See MoreSee Less
Thank u ! I nearly forgot 😁
Watched it. I have to say, it was the weakest episode of them all so far. Some nonsense about a spore drive and the creature from last week. And the Klingon stuff was black and white. All a bit silly and poorly thought out. Didn’t believe any of it. Hoping it’s just a one-off. Will watch again tho just to be sure! 😀

Haha! Who goes to them anymore? I’ve not been in one for years - except to vote the Tories out as it’s my local polling station. Must make the effort. I used to live in them as a kid
The last time I was in my local library was about a year ago. Now I go to their website and take out books, audio books, magazines, comics and movies online.

Finally read ‘Ready Player One’ by Ernest Cline. *Minor spoilers* A really interesting book, brilliant in many ways, and a page-turning read but the ending? A bit of a let down... It was what I was expecting but with no ‘fireworks’ - if that makes any sense? And a little sentimental. I’d recommend it though. Very much so. It was like reading the history of my own life’s interests and obsessions - all the films, fantasy role playing games and video games that I’ve loved. Thoughts from anyone who’s also read it? ... See MoreSee Less
Just watched #StarTrekDiscovery Episode 3. It’s superb on many levels. Mainly the characters. Loved it. Lots going on. Lots to think about😀 ... See MoreSee Less
yes, I think it's going to be pretty cool. too bad everyone has to have an American accent, though. getting tired of that ---
It bugged me a bit at the end 😉 That certainly wasn't S.T. style, not "main line", some episodes had in all S.T. Series, so that was unusual But over all I liked very much despite a little thing at the end
Great ep. Gorey for Trek though!
It was a bit like a horror movie I thought
that bug thing looks like a giant flea--had blood sucking mouth parts, too
'Grown up' Star Trek I hope! There's enough sci-fi pap out there for the kids. But its sadly not quite 'Game of Thrones in space'
not the obviously fake monsters on original Star Trek, that's for sure. bug reminded me of the bugs in "Starship Troopers" --
Sonequa Martin-Green has a lot of personal gravitas--very evident in "Walking Dead" --so expecting more of that
I love First Officer Saru - he's very interesting. Love his hoofed feet. And Rekha Sharma (Commander Landry - head of security) is one to watch as well. And Jason Isaacs is just class. I'm intrigued to find out who he is... he's certainly the most creepiest captain so far
Also looking forward to see Rainne Wilson in what I'm guessing must be a younger version of Harry (Harcourt) Mudd 😀
Star Trek should not aspire to be "Game of Thrones" style since it isn't what S.T is sbout And if you want "Zombies" out in space, watch "Firefly" then weep and watch "Serenity" and become angry 😛 Saru has some good burns that's for sure I am still not sure what to think of it, I do like it and it is definetely better than Star Trek Enterprise But is it Star Trek? Not yet other than the names of spaceships and ranks etc But I do hope it will get there, it has a lot of going for it Michael has an execellent blend of Kirk & Spock so far, but we still need a whole character being a Spock/Data/Tuvok/Odo/Seven of Nine among other missed characters
I shall be watching this space for more Stormtrooper revelations.

Watched the first two episodes of Star Trek Discovery on Netflix. Brilliant production values and an intense opening. It’s like no Star Trek TV series that’s boldly gone before. 8/10 from me so far. ... See MoreSee Less
Cheers dude I'll look it up 😁
There is a bit of Kirk in Michael, isn't there? I love that they returned to an instrumental intro unlike the S.T. Enterprise, which I only bothered to watch a few episodes of. This one has a lot more potential IMO
I have watched all the series, and the first episodes always require some faith. This one has fantastic production values; let's see if the rest follows.
I’ll watch it all anyway 😀
I thought it was well done even though it's in the "getting to know you" stage. It's definitely the darker side of Star Trek.
The head writer says the first series is gonna be all war and then series two and onwards is gonna be more a trad let’s see what’s out there kinda thing
That sounds interesting, like re-occupying the territory overwhelmed by too many gung-ho pretenders over the years, in thrall to Cameron's Aliens. I'm just about to watch this for first time. No spoilers plz ☺️

Got my new Kindle 6” Paperwhite Hi-Res with backlight today after my old one died 😢 It’s bloody lovely 😀 So what are you? Book or e-reader? ... See MoreSee Less
I love my books but I got a kindle so I could download your books !! So really kindle should give u a huge discount as i bought mine because of u... I do find it hugely convenient for holidays reading and taking to work ...but ... I love the feel and look of books more 😁
I’ve moved on from books... the horror!
I can't let go ....its a compulsion !! 😲
I like my own books as actual books. They sit next to Frank Herbert on my shelf.
Both. If I'm reading in bed it tends to be on the kindle as its kinder on my ageing wrists (and lit so don't need a bright lamp on). I do love a book though, like Rob - I can't let go either.
I have some Edgar Rice-Boroughs including a first edition all of which smell of old books .. . It's an emotive smell and feel to the old paper .... I believe the smell is a form of mould that affects old books tho 😲
I've got a Voyage. It's a thing of beauty.
I’ve still got my original Kindle - probably 6 / 7 years old. I only buy real books that are non-fiction - the sort I need to flip back and forth to different sections or have a lot of diagrams. Can’t do that so easily on a kindle. I love buying a kindle book and reading it straight away!
one thing--reading an ereader in be seems to disrupt my sleep pattern, so avoid, if can!
meant to say, in bed
I'm reading a physical book at the moment. I keep wanting to tap the page to check the definition of a word.

If music be the food of love, what be the food of hate? I'd certainly nominate celery... ... See MoreSee Less
Shellfish (allergic) and blue cheese (because it's rank)
Butter beans!!!! 😣😖🤐
It's actually a close contest between coffee revels and butter beans for me.
Anything with cinnamon in it.
Love a warm cinnamon roll.
Mushrooms are the devil's arse biscuits.
Celery or kidney.
Cod roe, the thing that comes in a tin, then sliced and fried. It induces a vomit reflex in me!
PS: I like celery, esp with hummus dip.
oh noooo...I love celery.....
celery has no taste---I eat it with peanut butter
An interesting fact about celery is that you expend more calories digesting it than you get from digesting it. So good as a dieting tool, but only for masochists...
yes, I've been aware of that fact since childhood---my mother was always making me diet

Off to a diner party as someone's guest and don't know anyone else. Didn't know it was a dinner party either. Small talk. Hates it. Stressed out. 😱 ... See MoreSee Less
Covertly take the micky out of the other guests so that only u know it's happening! Amuse yourself 😁

In the taxi now. Doomed man
You will be fine Kev... I was not feeling at all sociable last night but pushed myself in to a game of 6 a side football with workmates .. I'm now a cripple but I'm glad I did it ... Even tho at the time I did not want to be around people ...
Ooh I feel your awkward in this, not my bag either. Just enjoy the free food is all I can offer up, (no good advice sadly!)
No useful advice but there must be an F1 fan there x
Be yourself and you'll (1) have a good time or (2) be home soon 💪
Still here. Have talked to three people. Haha
I hear ya. I'm the worst, especially with other dudes, I just zone out as soon as sport is mentioned and disappear into the shadows.
Without blowing smoke up your arse, I can't imagine a better person to bump into at a dinner party. I always found you charming company who led conversations on a great range of topics. Your asd gives you a skewed view of how others perceive you 😊.
a lot of people are socially awkward, me included. but I'm a loud mouthy introvert, so there's that.
My daily 1,500 words leapt out my fingers this morning unlike yesterday's painful wrenching. Ack!
Vatic Book 2 'Ariadne' Draft One will be finished sometime this week 😀
