Project Indigo

One boy’s adventure through time and space!

Hi, I’m Tom, a local Doctor Who blogger & I write about my adventures online at

Project Indigo is my blog where I travel the world visiting
people and places associated with Doctor Who. Today I
have taken my TARDIS to the Netherlands for the first time
and I am visiting the Van Gogh Museum! This museum is
dedicated to the artist Vincent Van Gogh who was featured
in the Doctor Who episode “Vincent and The Doctor”

In this episode the Eleventh Doctor and Amy meet Vincent
in 1890, the year of his suicide. They try to help him drown
his demons but sadly his demons can swim and The Doctor is not able to change history.

I went to the Van Gogh Museum to see some of Vincent’s paintings up close and learn
more about his life. It is located on the Museumplein in Amsterdam surrounded by many
others including the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum. It was opened in 1973 after
Vincent’s nephew gave his family’s collection to the Dutch on permanent loan.
The museum holds 200 of his paintings, over 500 of his drawings, 4 sketch books and
almost all the letters that he sent. This is the largest collection of his works in the world.

The museum is very modern. I entered through a glass foyer and saw the museum has
two parts - the main collection and an exhibition wing. The first thing I saw was that the
museum is ‘blind friendly’ with an interactive painting of “Sunflowers” which you can touch
to feel Van Gogh’s brushstrokes, smell the scent of the sunflowers and even listen to. This
enables everyone to feel and experience Vincent.

The collection covers from 1880 - 1890. This may not seem long
but in his short life as an artist he created about 2,100 artworks,
including around 860 oil paintings, most of them in the last two
years of his life. The most famous paintings are The Potato Eaters
(1885) and Sunflowers (1889), with one of my favourites being
Skull of a Skeleton with Burning Cigarette (1886). Over 2 million
visitors come to the museum every year from all over the globe.
In the episode The Doctor took Vincent to the Musée D’Orsay to
see how much his work has been appreciated over the years. I
wish Vincent really had gone in a TARDIS so that he could come
to this museum and learn that he became known as one of the
greatest men that ever lived!

I hope you have enjoyed learning about the Van Gogh Museum. If you would like to read
about my other Doctor Who adventures please check out my blog. Thanks for reading,

Tom Project Indigo --

A policeman was visiting Winton Primary School when he was interrupted by a six year old
girl. She looked up and down at his uniform and asked, “Are you a proper policeman?”

“Yes, I am,” he said. “My mother told me that if I ever needed help I should ask a policeman.
Is that right,” the girl asked. “Yes it is,” said the policeman.

The girl extended her foot to the policeman and said, “OK, then, would you tie my shoe?”

Mike was a thoughtful husband. He wanted to give his wife something special for
Christmas just weeks away. As he sat on the edge of the bed, he watched his wife turning
back and forth and looking at herself in the mirror. “Julie,” he said, “What would you like for
Christmas?” His wife continued to look at herself and said, “I’d like to be eight again.”
Mike knew just what to do. On the big day, he got up early and made his wife a bowl of
Frosties. Then he took her to Poole Park to ride on the Father Christmas train, and feed the
reindeer. Then they went to Bournemouth gardens and played Crazy Golf.. Next it was a
Disney film with popcorn and coke. Then on the way home they stopped at Sprinkles for a giant

chocolate and caramel ice-cream sundae.
As Julie wobbled into the house that evening and flopped on the bed, Mike asked her,

“Well, darling, what was it like to be eight again?”
Julie looked up at him. Her expression changed. She said, “I meant my dress size!”

Two elderly ladies had been friends since their 30s. Now in their 80s, they still got together each

week to play bingo. One evening one of them said, “You know, we’ve been friends for many
years and, please don’t get mad, but for the life of me, I can’t remember your name. Please tell
me what it is.” Her friend glared at her. She continued to glare and stare at her for at least three

minutes. Finally, she said, “How soon do you need to know?”

Expert Advice with a Friendly Face

Legal Eye……Employment Law

A look at some of the questions asked by members of the public regarding their employment

“I work in a care home, I am the only person on shift overnight although I am allowed to sleep when I am
not busy, but I only receive a fixed amount of money for this shift. Am I entitled to the National Minimum
Wage for nightshifts?”

Possibly yes, this area of law is fast changing and there have been a number of recent decisions from
the Courts to support the fact that nightshifts can attract the national minimum wage. It will depend
on the facts of each individual case, but if you are unable to leave the premises during your shift; it is
necessary for regulatory reasons for your employer to have a person on the premises and there is an
adequate degree of responsibility during the nightshift then it is possible that you may be entitled to
be paid the national minimum wage going forward and possibly for some of the nightshifts already

“I have been employed for just over a year, my employer has dismissed me but has not told me why. Can
they do this?”

The first issue to be established is to find out what the reason was for the dismissal. You have the right
within 14 days of your dismissal to request reasons for your dismissal in writing. Once you know
the reason for dismissal, it is worth considering whether the dismissal was unfair. A claim for unfair
dismissal normally requires two years continuous service, however, there are some circumstances
where the law considers dismissal of an employee with under two years’ service to be unfair. For
instance, if an employee raises an issue about health and safety in the workplace and they are
dismissed as a result, the law says that this would be automatically unfair.

“I suffer with depression and anxiety and find it difficult to tell work that I cannot attend. My employer
wants to discipline me for this, what can I do?”

If your condition affects your normal day to day activities, such as going to work, sleeping,
concentrating, socialising and that affect is more than minor, there is a possibility that you have rights
under the Equality Act. The Equality Act places a duty on employers to make reasonable adjustments
to help you carry out your contractual duties. Many people suffering with depression struggle to
keep in regular contact with their employer. Employers will often implement their sickness reporting
policies quite rigidly and employee often suffer with no pay or disciplinary proceedings as a result.
However, this is one area where it would be reasonable to make an adjustment to that reporting
procedure to help the employee and avoid disciplinary sanctions for unauthorised absence. Employees
should discuss with their HR department or line manager about making adjustments that are suitable
for both parties.

Brain Power

1: The famous ‘Penny Black’, the world’s first postage stamp, was
introduced in England in 1840. The idea of postage stamps was a great
success and was taken up worldwide. Yet the ‘Penny Black’ was in use for
only one year before it was replaced by the ‘Penny Red’. Why?

2: There are three boxes. One is labelled “APPLES” another is labelled
“ORANGES”. The last one is labelled “APPLES AND ORANGES”. You
know that each is labelled incorrectly. You may ask me to pick one fruit
from one box which you choose. How can you label the boxes correctly?

3: There is a lightbulb (incandescent, it’s currently off) in an upstairs
room. You are downstairs, standing next to a panel of three light switches
(all of them in the off position). One of them controls the lightbulb. The
other two don’t do anything. You must figure out which switch controls
the bulb, with some restrictions.
1) You can do whatever you want to the light switches, as long as it’s
either turning them on or turning them off.
2) After fiddling with the light switches, you can go upstairs and check the
3) You cannot see the bulb nor any light shining from it from where
you’re initially standing.
4) You cannot make multiple trips up and down the stairs.
5) The lamp is in the ceiling but you do have a ladder.
So, you fiddle with the switches, you walk upstairs and check the bulb,
and then you immediately decide which switch controls the bulb.
How do you do it?

4: Two friends decide to get together; so they start riding bikes towards

each other. They plan to meet halfway. Each is riding at 6 MPH. They live

36 miles apart. One of them has a pet carrier pigeon and it starts flying

the instant the friends start traveling. The pigeon flies back and forth at

18 MPH between the 2 friends until the friends meet.

How many miles does the pigeon travel? Answers on page 44

50 Years Of Dentistry At 854 Dental Health

We recently celebrated 50 years of dentistry at 854 Dental Health. We were joined by past
colleagues, former owners and tenants of the building for a lovely reunion. *

We reminisced about our experiences since 1967 and how Moordown and our practice has
evolved. We compared old style dentistry to the modern approach of today whilst listening to
the sounds of the sixties !

We are delighted to have completed 50 years at 854 and we look forward to caring for our
existing and new patients in the future. Who knows what will be possible in 2067 but whatever
may change, we know that our good old fashioned professional values will remain.

We would like to thank all our patients for their continued support and in particular those who
have been coming here from day one. It is a privilege to have such a shared history.

As part of our ongoing celebrations we have 50% discount on new patient appointments

booked before the end of the year.

Call 01202 512967 for more information.

* With many thanks to Franco and Lewis at Affamato in Moordown for providing a great
private party venue and the most amazing food.*

Travel Feature - Tale of 2 Cities - Dublin and Belfast...
By Mags Addison
I’ve been back and forth to Ireland recently, and visited both Dublin in
the Irish Republic, and Belfast in Northern Ireland. They aren’t called the
emerald isles for nothing, as both cities are traditional, and based on a
river. And brimming with Irish hospitality.
Dublin has long been a popular for a city break. It’s a busy city either side
of the River Liffey, famous for its literary heritage, and places like Trinity
College on O’Connell Street, which holds the Book of Kells. Tourists come
from all over the world to view this and the grounds of this famous grey stoned University.
Writers such as Oscar Wilde and James Joyce were born here. If you are visiting Oscar’s Wilde’s
house in Merrion Square – and fancy a stroll, then a short ten-minute walk away is an interesting statue
of the author inside nearby Merrion Park. It’s worth a visit.
Dublin is famous for Guinness – either in liquid form, or in a hearty Guinness and Beef pie. The Temple
Bar area is a huge tourist draw, full of colourful restaurants, Irish pubs, and bars – most with live music.
The atmosphere is friendly as people merrily spill from one bar to another. Even in the rain, you could
feel the atmosphere and the infectious vibe in the street. I found it quite expensive during my visit, as
the pound was weak against the Euro, but you get a warm welcome. There are flights from many UK
Airports – we flew from Southampton with Flybe – and it’s an easy shuttle into the city centre from the
Belfast by contrast is now starting to become popular on the tourist map, and with good reason.
It’s well worth considering for a short break. A city full of proud ship building and industrial history,
sitting at the month of the River Lagan. I found it pleasant to walk around with handsome Edwardian
and Victorian buildings gracing the leafy streets in the centre. A lot of growth and regeneration has
happened here, and, it’s a modern city.
Belfast’s main legacy is the large and imposing Titanic Belfast, the huge aluminum museum which is
based on a ship’s hull, and stands in the renovated dockland area. The ship was built here in the early
1900’s by Harland and Wolff, and the Titanic Quarter contains their drawing offices as well as the
Titanic slipway. This is worth seeing, and again is full of visitors from around the world. There’s a good
hop off and hop on bus service that covers this area along with other historic parts of the city. A ride
from outside of the Titanic Building into town centre told of the proud heritage of Rope Making, and
other trades in this sea port.
It has its own literary greats born in this city. Games of Thrones is shot here at the Belfast Studios. And
it’s a city of arts, and culture – Belfast’s annual culture night is in September,
when all the bars are thrown open with a genuine Irish welcome.
It’s in the UK of course, so no need to change currency, although you will
be given Irish pound notes. Again, there are regular flights around the UK,
and from Southampton.
What I liked about both cities were the people. North or South - they were
warm and friendly and made you welcome. I could see why Irish hospitality
is well known!

Beach holidays, City breaks, Honeymoons, Weddings abroad, Adventure holidays, Ski,
Cruise, Tailormade trips, Flight only, Car hire, Airport hotels and parking and much more...

One night Sheila went carol singing.
She knocked on the door of a house and began to sing. A man with a violin in his hand came to
the door. Within a minute tears were streaming down his face! Sheila went on singing for half an

hour, every carol she knew - and some she didn’t. As last she stopped.
‘I understand,’ she said softly. ‘You are remembering your happy childhood Christmas days.

You’re a sentimentalist!’ ‘No,’ he snivelled. ‘I’m a music lover!’

Reliable Delivery People

Due to the continued growth of The Local Eye,

your own transport as each round is usually at least 500

magazines and they are too heavy to carry all at once.

We should’nt put up with painful feet. Pain is an indication that something is wrong.
Many foot problems are related to wearing incorrect footwear.

When patients complain of foot pain,
I examine their feet and listen to what
they are saying .But my eyes are always
diverted down to look at the shoes
which very often are the cause of the
problem. When I express concern
about the footwear I am immediately
told “But you must be wrong as they
have worn this style of shoe for many

An elderly Italian lady who’s problems
directly related to wearing ridiculous
fashion shoes was affronted when I suggested wearing trainers.
I thought she would probably not return but a year later she did wearing a trainer style
shoe I cut her nails we chatted about her family she didn’t mention any pain I didn’t
comment on her footwear.

So shoes are so important to healthy feet. It’s not just the style its how well the shoes fit.
There should be ½ an inch space beyond the longest toe and the end of the shoe. Feel
across the width of the shoe with the hand to make sure it’s not too tight. Lastly the heel
should fit in the back of the shoe and not slide up and down when walking.

I prefer a shoe with a Velcro strap or a lace up as they
give more support and they’re adjustable. Lace ups
when fastened should have a gap between the laces of
½ an inch. Most feet swell during the day so it’s better
to buy shoes in the afternoon. Shoes are so important,
do not impulse buy, shoes bought in the sales cannot
be returned so they not always the best choice.

So to reiterate...

Hello, my name is Chico.
I am a 1 year old Chihuahua X and I am very active. I came into
Waggy Tails Rescue a while ago and although I’m very happy with
my foster family I would really love my own family to live with. I’m a
very affectionate boy and I love being with people but would not like
to share my humans with any other pets.
I love my walks and when I come home settle down really well, I will
need a patient active home where I will become a loyal member of
the family.

own dogs. £5 each available from our office or our shops.

How Many Dogs Do You Need to Change a Lightbulb?

Boxer: Who cares? I can play with my squeaky toys in the dark.
Labrador Retriever: Oh, me, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I?

Jack Russell Terrier: I’ll just pop it in while I’m bouncing off the furniture and walls.
Old English Sheep Dog: What light bulb? I’m sorry, but I don’t see any light bulb!
Border Collie: Just one. Then I’ll replace any wiring I find that’s not up to standard.

Poodle: Let me just blow in the border collie’s ear and he’ll do it. By the time he finishes
rewiring the house, my nails should be dry.
Rottweiler: Try and make me.

Cocker Spaniel: Why bother changing it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.
Greyhound: It isn’t moving. Who cares?

German Shepherd: I’ll change it as soon as I’ve led these people out of the dark, checked to
make sure I haven’t missed anyone and made one last perimeter patrol to see that no one has

tried to take advantage of the situation.

There is no beating the taste of truly fresh
fruit and veg especially, when it’s yours!
Gardening Tips for December

December is here again, I can recall seeing Holly bushes overladen with berries back in September.
My mother always used to say it was a sign of a hard winter to come, we shall prepare for it anyway.
In the Flower garden. Cut back this year’s growth on Wisteria to or buds.
Do not be tempted to cut back your fading Hydrangeas. The new buds will be protected by them.
Do the pruning in the Spring. Clear all leaves from around Roses, those that have suffered from
Blackspot should be burned or put in landfill.
If you have Alpines or a dry bed apply extra grit around the plants. Lift and store Dahlia tubers once the
leaves turn black from frost.
On the Vegetable Plot. Time to dig over any empty vegetable areas.
Give them a good dressing over with manure or well- rotted compost and
leave it for the worms and bugs to do their job.
It is also time to enjoy those Parsnips, Leeks and especially those Brussel
Sprouts. Ensure the greenhouse is clean and fumigated to eradicate pests.
Group together any garden pots, this will provide a little extra protection.
Clear out your shed and if like me put it all back again.
In the House. Reflect on a good year of gardening whilst you tuck into
your ‘Quality Sreet’. I have been told the wrappers are cellulose so they
can be composted to ease your conscience.

A Merry Christmas from us all at North Bournemouth Allotment Society.

If you are becoming a keener gardener and you live within the Bournemouth Borough, then you
might want to put your name down for an Allotment. Call in at Cornelia Road any Saturday and

Sunday morning between 10.00 and 12.00 noon. We shall make you very welcome.

Gardening Tips for January

A few things we can be doing in the garden in January when the weather and the ground allow us.
Plan you spring planting. Select which seeds you will want. I know it hurts to throw away seed but Fresh
