    How important is the name Ewing Oil?

    One could make an argument that no one, especially an officer of the company, or even its founder should ever remove money for personal use.

    The first US Presidential Debate

    For what it's worth, I thought Biden won it on the optics, remaining (for the most part) under control. Trump seemed to get increasingly frustrated as his jibes failed to land. Of course, the issues didn't get much of a look-in but I'm not sure that's what people tune in for mostly anyway.

    Trump paid no federal income taxes in 11 of 18 years --- since he became president, his tax bill was only $750...

    And he's still promising to release the "real" ones? He's been claiming that the IRS has been stopping him for four years - and that's also been debunked.

    What was the last film you watched?

    Help! (1965) The Beatles' second film didn't get the critical acclaim that was showered on A Hard Day's Night but it has always been my favourite. I suppose I was just the right age for its fantastical elements to appeal to me more than the pseudo verite of the first film. John Lennon later said...

    90210 (without the BH) did include members of the original cast when it started.

    The Corona Virus

    With the case number continuing to fall, there has been some loosening of restrictions in Melbourne (the regional areas are already under fewer restrictions than the city), mainly for business and trades people. The 5km travel rule still applies but the controversial nighttime curfew has been...

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead at 87

    Who knows? Conventions are maintained until someone breaks them. The Republicans could simply have voted against Obama's nominee. Instead they made up a whole new rule which they're now reversing.

    "Next Friday"

    I would say "on Friday"; that to me would be the next Friday which would be this Friday. But if someone said to me "next Friday" I would ask them to clarify because that would be ambiguous.

    Discovery Season 3

    Now that I have a web TV box, I'm considering signing up for Netflix for the duration of season 3 and watching all three seasons in that time. Contrary to my usual disposition against prequels, I'm also fairly excited by Strange New Worlds. I understand that Pike is aware of his fate, meaning...

    Recycling Services

    That's illegal here now. We used to have regular kerbside pickups of "hard" waste but they discontinued that as an eyesore and now one has to book a special collection. The result is that instead of all households disposing of their items at once, there could be one or two piles out at any time...

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead at 87

    A fight would be a pointless distraction. The Republicans have the legal right and the numbers. But their hypocrisy is breathtaking.

    Mary Tyler Moore Show and Its Spin-Offs

    I didn't mind the show but it's always a tough ask to base a show around the annoying or unlikable character without toning them down until they're not really the same character any more.

    Gilligan's Island

    A lot of those last three season episodes were colour remakes of black and white episodes for the syndication market. If they'd known that colourisation was going to be invented they might not have bothered.

    That Girl

    I had never seen That Girl until one of our channels suddenly reran the whole thing. To me, a brand-new 60s show! Very enjoyable as a revisit to the era and also interesting as I had been very fond of her father Danny's eponymous show. In fact, he cameos as a priest in one episode and of course...

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead at 87

    You're right. The usual term is "inaugurated" I believe. A jurist would be expected to be as stickler for such things. As for "new", it's obviously too much to expect impartiality in these hyperpartisan times.

    Hello everyone

    I'd grown up watching I Dream of Jeannie and so initially watched Dallas because Larry Hagman was in it but it wasn't long before I was hooked on the ongoing drama and intrigue.
