oOooh, but my pic is here, look a tad upwards and to the left, don't you see how pretty I am.... flicksherpurplecurls and swingsheramplehipsjauntily

Perfect, then you'd be able to engineer for me one such Tardis Phone box but can I have it in yellow with rainbow coloured lettering, I don't particularly like blue
That's a tad too complicated, even for my "x-generation" oversimplified mind ... please choose one from modern "iGeneration" fleet my dear ...

There wouldn't be any need for a poll, if everyone would fill in their profiles on here

I wish, I were older than what I am, I got almost green with envy reading Odile's post about being in London in the 70's ...oh, to have witnessed those times.

I think my next boyfriend will have to be a kind of Dr.Who
Might be another thread - but why do no new members include at least the basics of their profile. To be honest, can't be bothered to exchange or offer experiences with people I've no clue about.

Beware of Bre-, I mean Tard-exit ... my dear. The dark clouds of dauntingness over northern hemisphere are dawning on us, which will make Tardises availability very limited.

Perfect solution. Put it outside the neighbours house, let him deal with the spam mail.

To reconnect to the actual subject: Solution only for generations who are still able to run to the phone.

I am trying to imagine what you have just described so eloquently Mme and the only mental picture that comes to my (narrow)mind is ...

P.S. Please excuse me drawing those post apocalyptic red shores ... they will be updated to peaceful shores in Eastenders Episode III
