Gail and Jim: I also eyeball the candies in Rita's shop!LOL

Tracy: Those candies sound delicious!

Lise: Oh they all look so good!

I still can't get over the fact all of us weren't shown the retirement storyline of Norris Cole. I just don't get how they can do that, and while watching last night, I kept thinking *I don't remember any of this*. The last I remember, Colin was trying to talk Norris into selling, and Norris was adamant he wouldn't.

Gail Thursday 20:56
One that always distracts me is that container with the word Millions on it! It looks like it has little blue balls inside! I guess if the writing was better I wouldn't get distracted by those jars of sweets! LOL What are *White Mice* Little white chocolate mice?

Dianne W. Thursday 21:07
The last I remember of Colin is seeing him plonking his leg on the table, and his purple socks. eek!

Lise Thursday 21:17
You are very observant Gail.:)
I had to google "white mice".

I always felt like I was part of the Corny family, always looking to the next episode. I dont feel like that now. Too much drama, not as many chuckles. Too heavy. A new storyline begins and we dont see the ending of the last. People disappearing then reappearing. Its all moving too fast. Too many writers? Not enough? Moving too fast

(37918) Rhubarb & Custard hard candies! yum yum, I have some! From Scotland...

T Thursday 18:21
so funny you should mention them Gail! There is only 1 left in the packet; they are made by Bishops; my relatives brought them over this past summer.
Also love Kola Kubes, and anything Black Currant.

Gail Thursday 18:27
LOL I thought the ones on Corrie looked like hard candies. I've see those Kola ones on their shelf too. Thanks for posting the pic Tracy!

Lise Thursday 18:50
The ones I sampled were from Haribo.
Here's a photo:

Nancy Friday 03:25
The british candy I love is Aniseed Royales from Bassett. Everyone who goes to Britain is charged with bringing them back for me, but they seem to be disappearing - I've had only one roll in the last few years. So yummy.

SPOILER RE NORRIS AND COLIN**** [www.dailystar.co.uk]

Gail Thursday 17:02
I hope that Colin isn't the next villain. He's going to take over where Phelan leaves off and start terrorizing the residents and customers, putting drugs in the Rhubard Custards so that he can control them. LOL

Jim Thursday 19:26
Maybe he will dress up like Santa and break into the flats stealing gifts on Christmas Eve...and all the WhoCorries will come together in the square(otherwise known as The Rovers Return) will drink after drink while singing Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer(got to keep it dark)...The Grinch Who Stole Corrie's Christmas-LOL

Gail Thursday 20:48
Ha! Good plot Jim! And they could change the words to *Rita got run over by a reindeer*!

Jim Friday 03:41
Gail-lol...love it-i should have thought of that one///Rita got run over by Rover...the dog was dressed as a reindeer on Christmas Eve...Rita stumbled down the cobbles...more drunk than anyone should ever be!!! lol

It would had made more sense to have someone already on the street to buy the Kabin instead of introducing a newbie..maybe Johnny could had bought and gave it to Jenny to manage...then Rita could still help out on occasionally but not full time-be semi-retired...heck, most of the stuff sold at the Kabin-why not be found at Dev's???...

Jim Thursday 16:41
and turn the Kabin into a regular post office...then maybe make Kirk a mailman or even Beth while Kirk works for Tracy???

Gail Thursday 16:47
I find myself distracted sometimes when there's a scene in the Kabin. I start looking at all the big jars of bulk sweets and reading the labels LOL Some of them seem very strange, like Rhubarb Custards for example. Never heard of THAT!

Lise Thursday 16:59
They're not bad Gail. Made by Haribo. Similar to gummy bears. British folks LOVE their candies.

I'm not a big fan but I used to really love Callard & Bowswer candies. They were fabulous. Sadly they have disappeared.

Lise Thursday 17:04
The C & B were all delicious but my all time favourites were Barley Sugar. No one make these with barley anymore.

Gail Thursday 17:05
Really! They look like hard candies but are more like gummy bears! I remember the Callard and Bowser toffees. They were good!

Jim Thursday 19:12
Gail...you are not alone...i eye shop when they show The Kabin too...lol

I'm glad I'm not the only one confused about Colin owning the Kabin[does this mean we're stuck with him now?]as I also remember Norris turning down his offer with Mary's approval.
Perhaps if the writers put aside their obsession with every episode centered around Phelan or the Platts and actually follow through with some of the other storylines,then maybe viewers won't be so confused.

Bonnie Thursday 17:15
Exactly, Marie. and other stories, like the one about Mary's son, feel rushed and not thought out.

Like i said before there are too many stories on this overcrowded soap that are big front and center stories that jump back and forth without good continuation so when you have little stories like Steve proposing to Leanne or Norris selling the Kabin this small stuff can be easily overlooked and forgotten...stories should have a beginning, middle and end with a second story just brewing instead of several going all over the place...its like someone pasted several chapters of different books together which is very confusing for most of us!!!

Bonnie Thursday 17:14
Well said, Jim! I completely agree.

Felt so sorry for Rita, overhearing Johnny on the phone. Things like that can always cause damage. She will never forget it.

Colin - did I miss something - Norris sold the Kabin to him? When did that big decision come to light? Retirement? Huh?
I swear, it seems like the writers don't even check where the last script ended! UGH!!!!!! roll eyes (sarcastic)

Sometimes watching Corrie is like jumping into the middle of a movie, where you spend more time asking questions than enjoying the story.

Gayle Thursday 12:58
Tracy, well said! I was thinking the exact same thing, that came out of nowhere.

Lise Thursday 13:07
Norris retiring… That was news to me too. What gives?

Hey Jude Thursday 14:00
Glad it wasnt just me! WTH is going on!? I thought maybe I missed an episode

blitzen Thursday 14:43
I remember Colin making the offer to buy the Kabin, but I have no memory of Norris accepting it. It all seems very rushed. What is Norris going to do with himself now? He's not the sort to just sit around watching soap operas on the telly.

Gail Thursday 15:52
We didn't know because it was probably mentioned in one of the cut scenes!

Lise Thursday 16:08
LOL Gail!

I vaguely remember Colin making an offer to Norris and Norris refusing to sell point blank.

Gail Thursday 16:11
I haven't paid attention to that entire storyline I must admit. I fast forwarded through some of his scenes. Now I read that he's going to turn out to be Norris's long lost son believe it or not!

Lise Thursday 16:33
Who, Colin??

Hey Jude Thursday 16:34
Gail: LMAO, that's probably what happened!LOL

Gail Thursday 16:44
Yep, I read on one of those tabloids I got in a google alert that Colin turns out to be Norris's long lost son. Maybe it's fake news! I have no idea. But it sounds like something they would do these days!

haili Thursday 16:49
Maybe we're all getting excited for nothing. I'll bet Norris gets his shop back and Rita's back in her flat before long. Todd or Adam will save the day!

Gail Thursday 16:54
I believe that's exactly what will happen! First we'll have to go through all this drama and then it will all work out.

Hey Jude Thursday 23:50
Haili: I read a bit of a *spoiler* alert and I also think that's what will happen.

I hope that now CBC knows where we are watching the deleted scenes on another website, that they don't have that channel taken off as proprietary material.

Gail Thursday 03:20
That's why I didn't say I watched it on youtube Dianne! I thought the same thing. If they know we're doing that they might just tell ITV and have them remove it due to copyright infringement or something. I just said I saw them on another site. I'm sure they know that it was youtube anyway but I didnt want to spill the beans!

Tracy Thursday 12:23
I wouldn't worry too much. CBC can't even be bothered to alter a standard reply template, nevermind go to the trouble of reporting things to ITV! In my experiences, it's usually 'Full Episodes' that are removed from YouTube. BBC One is on top of it, they must scour YouTube daily. That's why you cannot find Shetland, Happy Valley, Last Tango, etc on YouTube. They permit 'short clips' but not full episodes. I think the cut scenes would be within the limitations.

I just went and watched the November 9th episode where Pat kills Andy on the CBC website just to double check that what Kamala Bishop said is true. She suggested watching the online episode which is unedited as is the Sunday Omnibus. Well, the online episode is definitely edited because that scene where Pat prays over Andy and Vinnie is missing in the online broadcast as well! They do show him standing there and crossing himself but no prayers or anything. It cuts right to the scene where he dumps the bodies in the water. Not sure if the scene was in the Sunday Omnibus though because I didn't watch it that week, I usually don't.

Dianne Thursday 02:59
I usually watch online and the same scenes that are edited on TV are always edited out online as well.

I thought the a bit strange when I
read that response. I have no intention of taping or getting up on Sun morn just to watch a few missed scenes.

Gail Thursday 03:22
Exactly! I really don't enjoy watching any shows online if I don't have to. I used to watch Emmerdale online for a while when CBC stopped showing it but I got tired of doing that. I could have got my husband to work his magic and get it on my TV but I never did that. I do still miss Emmerdale!

Re: Cbc complaint -- well no shock here; same reply. #@*%!

Hi Tracy,

Thank you for taking the time to write to the CBC. We're glad to hear you’re a fan of Coronation Street.

Small edits to foreign television programs are actually not uncommon for all North American television networks. Foreign schedules often mean that programs created overseas don't perfectly "fit" North American network formats. As the Canadian licensee of Coronation Street for many decades, we can edit for time so that programs adhere to our standards.

That said, it is not in our interest - or that of the many Corrie fans who tune in to CBC to see the show - to edit significant plot details. We try to be very careful to ensure the continuity and quality of the program is maintained.

Again, thank you for all of your feedback – we have passed your comments along to our programming team, who eagerly read each and every bit of feedback we receive. We hope, at the very least, we were able to clear up any confusion you may have had about broadcasting foreign content, licensing and network presentation practices.

All the best,
Kamala Bishop

Communications Officer,
CBC National Audience Services

T Wednesday 20:30
here was my complaint:

Well, I've complained before, but no reply as usual. Your staff really dropped the ball on Thursday night when they cut an absolutely crucial scene from Corrie. All the fans have been waiting months and months for this climax and CBC totally ruined it! and the sad part is, if the fans don't follow other websites, they will never know what they missed. Time and time again, you cut the wrong scenes. Wouldn't it be a good idea to have person(s) responsible for cutting the scenes, actually watch the show? Surely that shouldnt be too hard to find a Corrie fan in the office to assist with the task of cutting scenes to squeeze in commercials? I am so disappointed. No much wonder many of the online fan sites recommend online viewing via other avenues than cbc television.

T Wednesday 20:35
Wow, their Communications Officer has an easy go of replying to complaints. Cut n Paste magic. My gosh, I was once a Complaint Officer in Consumer Relations for a major company, and yes, we did have some standard letters filed under specific complaint categories - but we altered them to suit the customers specific complaint at least! I wouldn't dare send out an exact replica of a previous reply letter to another customer! #@*%!

Lise Wednesday 21:47
We expected it..

Maybe if half a dozen fans wrote about the cut
they might start to take it more seriously?

But they probably don't care. Probably feel we should be grateful CBC buys the program.

Hey Jude Wednesday 23:17
My niece watches Corrie and I had to tell her about that cut scene, otherwise she never would have known. I said before CBC doesn't care, so I won't be bothering to write. They probably do feel we should be grateful we get to see Corrie at all roll eyes (sarcastic)

T Wednesday 23:44
well, i replied to Ms Bishop (not Emily lol):

To Whom It May Concern:

I have received your VERY standard template of a reply.

Note, your exact same standard template was issued to another fan who made a similar complaint to mine. Not very personalized, to say the least.
Disappointed.

reply received quickly. I will post next...

T Wednesday 23:46
Hi Tracy,

I am sorry for your disappointment. I have replied to many similar concerns about the recent Coronation Street edit this week so I have been writing similar responses to many people. However, we have noted your feedback and I can assure you that it has been passed on.

Unfortunately, other than that, currently all we can do for you is to suggest these 2 alternative options to watch the program unedited through the CBC:

1. You can watch online here
2. You can watch the unedited Coronation Street Omnibus broadcast on Sundays from 8am-11am on CBC Television

Sincerely,
Kamala Bishop

T Wednesday 23:56
I've been heard. I guess that's all I can ask for.

Lise Wednesday 23:58
Well done you!!

Hey Jude Thursday 00:55
I'm glad you got a response Tracy. Better than nothing

Gail Thursday 01:24
I got a very similar response today Tracy. Not exactly the same, worded a little differently. I feel satisfied and glad that they are taking the time to write back to us rather than just sending an impersonal form response. So now we'll see what kind of results we get in future!

Pertrina Thursday 15:29
Re: 2. You can watch the unedited Coronation Street Omnibus broadcast on Sundays from 8am-11am on CBC Television.

I watched the omnibus on Sunday and this scene was also cut there for another Trivago commercial!

Gail Thursday 17:33
There you go. I think I will write back to Kamala and tell her that she may think they are unedited but they are!

Gail Thursday 18:30
I sent Kamala another email and told her that those two options she suggested are ALSO edited!

I too was surprised Gail welcomed Shona with such open arms, and felt she was testing Shona when she mentioned cleaning up after herself. Wonder how long this will last because we know Shona's son will likely get out of prison on a tech or after serving his time. How will Gail manage it then?! roll eyes (sarcastic)

Lynn,I think in Gail's eyes,Shona redeemed herself so do speak when she helped Bethany deal with Nathan even testifying against him in court.
Besides her grandchildren who are aware who Shona is seem to like her and that's all what matters to Gail,
I'm more bothered that Sarah moves Gary in David's house without asking him!
I thought with all the money he supposedly made they're supposed to get their own flat or house?!

Maggie Wednesday 17:55
Are Max and Lily aware of who Shona is? I missed that!

David's new look:

Odd. It is like he is trying to look older and edgier with the new hairdo and the beard. I kept thinking if his hair was a whiter, he'd look just like a q-tip. [i]Shrug...that is how my eyes saw him[i].

Also odd to me. I was also surprised that Shona is moving in, and even more surprised that Gail is not swinging from a chandelier screaming NO. Why would Gail so happily accept the mother of a killer in her home...the killer of her daughter-in-law? I am missing something.

Phelan found Anna's earring after she struggled with him. I wonder how he will use it to implicate her in Seb's tumble from the ladder.

I would like to see Anna in proper shoes for a change. She is always shown clumping/waddling around in those terrible Ugg-type boots.

I think that it will eventually be Anna AND Eileen who will devise a plan to entrap and confront the real Phelan.

Pearl Tuesday 23:42
That is what Pat was doing in Adam's office after hours when Rosie was using the internet. I think he planted Anna's earring somewhere which was why the police were doing a search. Wonder where and Who he planted the gun on???

Tracy,Unfortunately it's not the first time that Fiz committed fraud as I remember her posing as Colin Fishwicke's wife when she was married to John Stape so they could inherit his mother's estate.
Tyrone and Fiz have sunk to a new low and have become no better than their mothers.
I agree with your comments about Anna's violent streak.
I understand her frustration about Phelan but it's hard to feel sorry for her when she loses control of her senses.
I do wonder if Anna is heading for a nervous breakdown due to Phelan and her daughter calling the police on her?


Lise,Thanks to Sarah's big mouth, after the way Gary threatened David to give his inheritance to Anna or else,I liked the idea of the tables being turned in David's favour and having something over on Gary for a change.It bugs me seeing how cosy Gary has gotten in the Platt house[what about his son?]and he has more to lose with Sarah and his mother should it come out he slept with Phelan's daughter.

Tracy Tuesday 21:42
Marie, your memory is incredible. You would be a valuable resource for the writers in character background checks :)

We all know Anna is leaving, and I'm starting to wonder if she will be Phelan's 3rd victim. Obviously, in real life it wouldn't be a fault, but I have the feeling her big gob is going to be the death of her. Literally. And that's not a spoiler, just a guess. I was initially hoping she would take him down, but I'm starting to think differently on how this could all end!

Lynn Tuesday 22:44
Marie,

You really are amazing at remembering the past events and ups and downs of the characters.

Yes, Fiz does have some criminal tendencies and we have seen it before.

I only caught a bit of her and Tyrone in the Rovers and it looked pretty sketchy. It seems out of character for Tyrone to steal from his neighbours. I have not watched enough to know the ins and outs of this plot...it just seemed wrong.

Since Phelan came on the street, it is a street full of criminals and reprobates. Are there any nice people left on the street?

Next Rita opens a "common bawdy house" and acts as Madame until her untimely death. She has no home at this point, so ....

I am being sarcastic, but would not be shocked at any story line at this point.

Nancy Wednesday 00:56
I dunno. The girls didn't have permission to use Hope and they did. Fiz continued to let them because they needed the money, BUT this cheque was delivered to Fiz and Ty's house in response to their story and for Hope. The sleazy thing here is the lack of discussion about how best to put it towards Hope's future, but I don't really think that the sleazy thing is accepting a cheque offered in response to their true story and NOT offered to the crowdfunding page. To me it seems that is what the donor wanted, to directly impact Hope's life NOT to support a bunch o'seamstresses. Unless I've missed something?

Gail Thursday 03:45
Anyone who donates anything to that crowdfunding page is doing so with the intention of the money going to Hope, not a bunch of unemployed seamstresses. So Fiz and Tyrone should no more keep that cheque than they should any other donations that are made to *Hope* because they're just using Hope to fleece people. The entire thing is a terrible scam and I feel it flies in the face of fate because what if Hope's cancer comes back? How will Tyrone and Fiz feel then?

Can anyone explain what's up with Craig and his obsession with watching the time lately? Did I miss something or hasn't that been explained yet?

Hey Jude Tuesday 19:20
I'm probably wrong, but I figured he just didn't want to be late for his first *official* ride with the cop who is mentoring him. confused

Chris Tuesday 19:49
I think it has to do with the oops Craig did on the stand when he was testifying about Neil Clifton during the trial. On the stand, Craig mixed-up 8.00 pm with 0800 hrs I believe. Somehow that error has made him obsessed with focusing on the clock and, perhaps, memorising the exact time he leaves home, or exits a police car, for example. My thoughts only, as I don't recall any mention of Craig's obsession by his family.

Maggie Tuesday 22:58
Thanks you two.

Craig has been seen looking at various clocks in almost a panicked sort of way, so I don't think it was just about being on time once - something is going on there.

I guess we will have to wait to find out!

Pearl Wednesday 18:07
I think Craig is showing signs of OCD. Where that came from is a question. It could be him stressing over his feelings for Bethany. Now that she is staying Italy we might see another effects.

I wonder what will happen with the investigation into Seb's fall. I'd like to see things get really heated with the cops going after Anna and Pat trying to set her up and Anna looking guilty....then for it to be discovered that the window at the solicitor's office is painted shut! They did just move in and so it wouldn't be very far fetched to think that they painted and haven't tried to open the window since.

Hello Lise,

Thank you for taking the time to write to the CBC. We're glad to hear you’re a fan of Coronation Street.

Small edits to foreign television programs are actually not uncommon for all North American television networks. Foreign schedules often mean that programs created overseas don't perfectly "fit" North American network formats. As the Canadian licensee of Coronation Street for many decades, we can edit for time so that programs adhere to our standards.

That said, it is not in our interest - or that of the many Corrie fans who tune in to CBC to see the show - to edit significant plot details. We try to be very careful to ensure the continuity and quality of the program is maintained.

Again, thank you for all of your feedback – we have passed your comments along to our programming team, who eagerly read each and every bit of feedback we receive. We hope, at the very least, we were able to clear up any confusion you may have had about broadcasting foreign content, licensing and network presentation practices.

All the best,
Kamala Bishop

Standard reply. It will interest me to see if any other guestbookers get a reply, and if that reply will be the same template.
Imo, the 3rd paragraph should have ended something like " we are very sorry if we have failed you in that regard "

Lise Tuesday 21:42
Agreed!

I was not a tad confused about foreign content, licensing and network presentation practices.

We all know that cuts must be made. It's what they choose to cut that is the issue.

Hey Jude Tuesday 22:57
Tracy and Lise: I think that was a terrible response and agree thats likely the standard reply CBC throws out. Confused? Not bloody likely!

Just finished the Globe and Mail crossword puzzle.
For 'furtive' the answer is 'hole and corner'.

Looking it up I see that is the right answer. Do any of you who come from Britain know that expression?

OBSERVATION RE: Kate Oates Interview

Would an author write books that they know the reader hates, but the author thinks that the plots are worthy despite what the audience says? IMHO, no...they would have no readers and be dropped like a hot rock from the job and their publisher.

So why would the powers that be let her keep foisting horrendous and IMHO, not very well written, stories on the viewers of Corrie?

It makes no sense at all to me.

Who says..."I know you all hate it, so I am going to make it worse and more extreme"?


Why would the execs at ITV keep on someone with that attitude?

Lise Tuesday 15:22
Oates may not last much longer.

Hey Jude Tuesday 16:51
I agree Lynn. IMHO that's taking arrogance to a whole new level roll eyes (sarcastic)

Lise: I hope you're right, but I am one of the people who said DT would never get elected!LOL

Joanne Tuesday 17:50
I agree, too, Lynn. As well, she not only sounded arrogant from her comments, but in her photos she "looked" so.

Lise: Do you have even a hint re: that? I hope you're right, but IMO the most recent writers/producers on Corrie have been less than stellar. Almost as if each one wants to be more extreme than the last. I think it's all for ratings and the mistaken belief that the more violent and OTT the plots, the more people will watch. Alas, some will.

Tracy Tuesday 17:52
Like every new producer, he/she comes with good & bad storylines and cast changes (hires n fires). But I'd have to agree Kate Oates has took us to a whole new level.
Gone are the days when my '30 min Corrie fix' brought me the pleasure of the British way of life I love so much.

Lise Tuesday 18:14
Joanne -sadly no! just wishful thinking.. wink

Lynn Tuesday 19:52
Joanne,

I agree about the look. It was the defiant, "I know better" stare down in the photo. I noticed it too.

No, she doesn't know better, and the opinions of long term viewers should matter to her.

My two cents worth on last night's eppie - I thought Beth looked ridiculous dressed in that costume and then to lie about not wearing it. Sorry but I didn't find it funny but having said that I have never been a fan of Beth.
I really admired Sally last night, loved how she dropped everything to be with Tim when he needed her.
I'm disappointed in Tyronne spinning a huge yarn about the non-existent Uncle and the inheritance.
I thought we had seen the last of Nicola, but clearly not - how long before Sara finds out about the pregnancy?

Lise Tuesday 13:18
Not very long Gayle now that David saw Gary and Nicola in an embrace!

Of course someone from the Platt family just happened to walk in their direction.

Joanne Tuesday 17:54
Disappointed in Tyrone and Fiz for using the money at all, although Fiz's face did show some shock about Tyrone's lies as to its source. Always like the two of them Didn't expect them to be so greedy and dishonest.

Joanne Tuesday 17:55
"liked"

Glad Tracy gave a job to Kirk. Don't see how she'd have enough for you know who to have some shifts, but nice of her to offer it.

Bit disappointed in Tyrone and Fizz...
Nice to see Tracy have a heart and offer some work to Kirk and Beth.
and of course lovely to learn Rita is going to be okay. Now we have to deal with this Colin creep who has manipulated his way into purchasing Rita's flat!
I laughed when Anna indicated she was a calm person to the police. Huh! Talk about self delusion... roll eyes (sarcastic)

Hey Jude Tuesday 04:05
Tracy: So true about Anna!LOL

I am REALLY disappointed in Tyrone and Fiz. I guess you could say that are officially scamming people! They better come clean soon or they are going to end up piling lies on top of lies. #@*%!

Lise Tuesday 14:50
Isn't it out of character for Tyrone and Fizz ?

Tracy Tuesday 16:14
Anna is not a nice person. In fact, she is violent. She has slappped Seb (a teenage boy, for goodness sake) and his mother Abi. She lunged at Phelan with a hammer. And she gets away with it in the street and even the fans of the show don't seem yo take a big issue with it. Is it because she is a woman? I dont want to cause a stir here, but we should be calling her out on her violent nature, not just her shrieking! Im starting to hope she isn't the one to bring Phelan down eek!

Tracy Tuesday 18:00
And back to Tyrone and Fizz: so now their characters are being ruined and have a complete change of integrity? Whatever next - Roy gets a personality change too? Geesh! roll eyes (sarcastic) confused

It was nice to see more of the characters tonight. Sally becoming mayor and Rita getting good news were a welcome change from the doom and gloom we've had lately. It was funny when the costume shop clerk saw Beth;s picture in the paper wearing the costume she said she never wore.

I don't care for David's beard but then I only like the odd one that's nicely clipped and shaped. Not everyone looks good in a beard but it seems that's the style on Corrie these days. As for Robert's hair, I liked it dark and think he should have gone grey gradually.

Sara Tuesday 12:16
The show seemed a little lighter tonight. I thought David's new look was quite nice - I think it totally suits him, if he keeps it clipped and nicely shaped.

blitzen Tuesday 16:33
Robert couldn't go grey gradually because he's in JAIL. Most jails don't have hair dye on tap for the inmates.

Hey Jude Tuesday 18:20
Blitzen: LMAO, I laughed at that comment by Haili. Maybe she said it tongue-in-cheek!LOL

Pearl Tuesday 23:17
I like David's new look, makes him look older. He will turn 27 this year and still looked like a teenager before the short beard. Could it be to soften the age difference between him & Shona?
