Stories below the fold

Ray Cusick, who invented the Daleks, has died. His family is in our prayers.


 BBC has a report on films that make you cry, as in "Les Mis"...

Nordic parents leave the kids outside in the cold to sleep.

well, I was amazed how I acclimatized to the cold after living in Minnesota for a few years: We got so used to below zero (F) temperatures that when it hit 32F, (or 0 C), we went around in just a sweater or a long sleeved shirt and loved it.

How you can tell your neighbor is from Minnesota

60 above zero: Floridians turn on the heat. Minnesotans plant gardens.50 above zero: Californians shiver uncontrollably. People are sunbathing in Duluth.
40 above zero: Import cars won’t start. Minnesotans drive with the sunroof open.
32 above zero: Distilled water freezes. The water in Bemidji gets thicker.
20 above zero: New Mexicans don long johns, parkas and wool hats & mittens. Minnesotans throw on a flannel shirt.
15 above zero: New York landlords finally turn on the heat. People in Minnesota have one last cookout before it gets cold.
Zero: People in Miami all die. Minnesotans close the windows.
10 below zero: Californians fly away to Mexico Minnesotans dig their winter coats out of storage.
25 below zero: Hollywood disintegrates. Girl Scouts in Minnesota still selling cookies door to door.
40 below zero: Washington, D.C.  finally runs out of hot air. People in Minnesota let their dogs sleep indoors.
100 below zero: Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Minnesotans get upset because the Mini-Van won’t start.
460 below zero: ALL atomic motion stops (absolute zero on the Kelvin scale). People in Minnesota can be heard to say,  “Cold ’nuff fer ya?”
ok guys: Compare and contrast the two Sherlocks. I haven't seen the US version ( Elementary)...which means it either hasn't played here or is on later than 9 pm which is our bedtime.
