Oh yeah the weather was awful over December and I was not amused by storm Eleanor! Did you experience the high winds? Also rather cold at the moment! I also don't live far from a supermarket, but I know what you mean about the elderly. But if they an use the internet they could order groceries to be delivered. But then again maybe a lot of them don't know how to use a cpmputer, I know my gran never could and it didn't matter how much I tried to teach her, she just couldn't grasp it really. Speaking of the horrible weather, it's not just the elderly who have trouble, apparently taxi drivers also do! There was a Friday night I was out with some friends for a Christmas drink, taxt was booked but never showed up! Did't manage to get one until 3 am :O ! Oh I've seen all the episodes of Stranger Things and was thoroughly enjoying them. Never really noticed anything that seemed out of place. I never played Dungeons & Dragons myself so I assume that was how it was played? I never considered the bikes really, I had a BMX myself when I was a kid but I remember some other kids that had weird bikes so I just assumed there were many styles out there. I suppose the one things that annoyed me was how capable and sure of themselves the kids were. But lots of shows/films do that these days. Did you ever play Dungeons & Dragons yourself? I remember the weird cartoon too . I think JJ Abrams who directed super 8 was a child of the 80s so I think he was just making a nostalgia film. Kind of like Stephen King always writing about childhool in the 50's/60's . But yeah the feel was quite similar to ET I though. yeah I did play Super Mario 3 back in the day. Been a looong time though. I think that challenge would be quite difficult . Have you tried it? Speaking of Mario Kart, I always preferred Mario Kart 64, the level called Banshee Boardwalk was the best ! I would definitely buy a mini N64 because it would be good for when friends are round here for a few beers . Also I heard some people managed to add more games to the mini SNES, did you hear that? Ah the good old days of game rental. We used to rent Royal Rumble all the time . My brothers and I went through a brief period of watching WWF so it was quite fun. Also speaking of MK, I have been playing a new game by the makers of MK, called Injustice 2. It's a side scolling fighter game like SF and MK, but it's set in the DC universe with characters like Batman and Superman. But because it's from the same people who make MK games it also has Sub-Zero and Raiden . Ever play it? I've not seen Married to the Mob, but I love Trading Places and Plans, Trains & Autombiles so I will definitely give it a go! P.S. did you have a good Christmas/New year? P.P.S did you hear that Quentin Tarantino may actually be directing the next Star Trek film? I just want Sam Jackson to show up shouting "who let these mother fucking snakes on this mother fucking starship"! Lol.
