OK, does this win the award for the most number of costume changes in a single video? :)

Completely unsurprisingly, Missy will return in Season 9.

Remember my Christmas Tunes Acronym Quiz? With the help of suggestions of songs I've missed, plus diving into Wikipedia's List of Christmas Carols, I've now expanded it to 200 tunes. Linked to below is the answer sheet, which this time I've sorted into genre then alphabetically - feel free to download and abridge to make a version suitable for your friends / family (don't forget that once you've abridged it, save it under a different name before wiping the answers!)... or suggest tunes I've missed to increase it beyond 200 3:) - there are a surprising number of Christmas-related tunes (I've generally stayed away from songs with little or no connection with Winter / Christmas e.g. E17's Stay Another Day, but for the time being am keeping The Power Of Love, as while it isn't overtly related to the season, it's full of religious/mythological symbolism and is a decent fit with the nativity-themed music video).

Welcome to G+ :)
Don't forget that unlike FB, it's not so much about following family / friends, but people / pages / communities you're interested in (so more akin to Twitter, as is its asymmetric follower model).

Something to get you exercising your grey matter...

Every year about this time of year, I release a Christmas Tunes Acronym Quiz. Currently it's up to 160 songs / carols encoded via acronyms of their first line or one of the most memorable lines (well, that's last year's edition - I haven't yet got around to finding some more obscure ones to bump it up further :D ).

It's a Google Doc with open access (anyone can edit - and yes, I do have backup copies so you don't need to worry about screwing it up!).

Open it up, see how many you can solve, and stick your initials (or pseudonym initials if you prefer) in the far column to track how well you're doing compared to everyone else (hence the Totals tab).

There's also a DIY tab where you can add others you know of that didn't make the main list / solve some that have already been put there.

I do have an answer sheet and an Excel version, so if you'd like to abstain from the online version but have a link to a version you can download and modify for use with friends / family / colleagues, let me know.

I also took some photos of Leamington's Christmas lights, at least partially to test out the night-time capabilities of my phone. Unsurprisingly, it tends to over-expose the decorations, but this should give a flavour of what they're like.

Not exactly its usual method of propulsion, but still... :)
 
Game N Gadgets originally shared:
The TARDIS sure doesn’t do a lot of flying, given that it’s supposed to be a space ship and all. Even the Doctor noticed when he commented about it in 2006′s Christmas special, The Runaway Bride. But if it flew, you’d expect it to just fly without any propellers or jets, right, because it is …

If you happen to wander through Solihull tomorrow, you may spot Solihull MBC's Chief Executive Nick Page pedalling furiously on a static bike in Touchwood. He's hoping to raise £5,000 to buy a wheelchair bike (not a handbike, a bicycle with a front attachment to take a wheelchair - see pic in link description) on behalf of Cycling Projects for the Solihull Wheels for All project (more details on the JG page).
