Last night, I heard something falling in my house. Turns out it was a chunk of plasterboard due to some water ingress.


If all goes to plan, my insurance will cover this and I will only be out of pocket by £250 from the excess.

make sure they replace the insulation as well, not just the drywall/plasterboard.

Well, it would appear that my leaky roof is down to wear and tear, not storm damage. Which means I'm going to have to pay for it to be fixed.

That sucks, because it may well need more than patching, because if one section failed to wear and tear, the rest is likely to go.

They should, makes it easier to deal with the kiddies... Of course, the performers get theirs free.

Beware of Dog. Cat not trustworthy either.
Awesome performance, and with the original voice actors too. It's a tad depressing to realize that P&tB are going to be 26 years old this year, and I was already in my early 20's when they debuted their own show instead of being part of Animaniacs. *sighs*

Hmmm... From that era, for cartoons, I actually did not like P and the B, nor Animaniacs, I preferred Tiny Toons and A Pup Named Scooby Doo, and Sonic the Hedgehog.

All good shows, imo. Not the best animation era, but some good, well loved shows.

Also: PMJ is a great cover group. Love their covers of famous songs done in different musical styles, like 'Africa' by Toto.

Understandable. They required a bit of a... quirky... personality to appreciate. I did like Tiny Toons as well, and even got their DVDs when released. God save us all from a grown Elmira...
I never liked A Pup Named Scooby Doo, since the imbecile Scrappy Doo totally ruined young dog characters associated with that franchise for me, and I don't think that Sonic even aired here, but I could be wrong.

A Pup Named Scooby Doo actually has a completely different feel to it from the other Scooby variants out there (and there are surprisingly a lot of them between 1969 and now). I liked it far more than the normal Scooby Doo shows. I agree though, Scrappy Doo was a pretty crappy addition to the main show...

There were actually 2 different series of Sonic the Hedgehog running here. A more serious one, and a pure slapstick one, I was out of high school at the time, but my younger brothers watched them in the morning before they left for school, so I got to see them on a regular basis.

The best one of the whole lot was Gargoyles.
Hands down, the best Disney show of the era. Loved that show. Used to rush home every day to watch it. Got the first season on dvd, waiting to get the season two dvds. Sure, I could stream it, but I'd rather have a copy for myself.

I picked those up awhile ago as well.
Edit
The most amazing AC/DC cover ever

Never cared for Gargoyles, though I remember my youngest brother quite liked it... I was intrigued by it though for having Jonathan Franks and Mirina Sirtis as voice actors...

If we are talking Disney offerings from that era... hmm... Tailspin, Duck Tales, and Darkwing Duck come to mind as the ones I followed.


EDIT: as for the cello face off... never seen anything like that using cellos... however, seems like a true musical face off like that would have not been complete with out either Caitlyn Deville or Lindsey Stirling there.

Example:

Wow... no plates, no registration, no proof of ownership, no u.s. license or passport, and crossing illegally with that much gas. Leaving aside the border crossing itself, how they expected to not need any of that across the thousands of miles they would be travelling is pretty dumb.

Ironically, as far as I know it is not technically against the law for having the gas if the gas is in approved containers/cans (which a jug is not any such thing), but they still would face charges on just about everything else... Even if they had valid canadian licenses that would not get them out of hot water if anything causes them to be noticed.

Not sure how this classes as a terrorist hoax, but then that would explain the judge dropping that charge. They could get ticketed for transporting explosive or hazardous materials, which is bad enough. Some states have tickets specifically for that type of activity. As you actually need a special license/permit to be able to do that legally.
