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” (2010).

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 --

I’m giving up social media for the New Year and am trying to make friends outside Facebook
while applying the same principles. Every day, I walk down the street and tell passersby what
I’ve eaten, how I feel, what I did the night before, and what I will do tomorrow. Then I give them
pictures of my family, my dog, and me gardening. I also listen to their conversations and tell
them I love them. And it works. I already have three people following me—two police officers

and a psychiatrist.

A lodger in a Scottish guest house in
Milngavie, near Glasgow, was on his
way to the bathroom carrying his shaving
gear, when the landlady stopped him and
said, ‘Have you got a good memory for

faces, Mr MacGregor?’
‘Och aye,’ Mac replied.
‘That’s just as well,’ she said, ‘because
there’s no mirror in the bathroom.’

At an auction in Glasgow a wealthy American announced that he had lost his wallet
containing £10,000 and would give a reward of £100 to the person who found it.
From the back of the hall a Scottish voice shouted, ‘I’ll give £150.’

out for a little car ride and tea at volunteer host and hostesses private
homes. Also needed is a permanet driver who will go out every month
on a Sunday afternoon if a regular driver cant come. Pickups can be
any where in the Bournemouth area.

Nichola went to the beach with me one weekend to walk our dog. There was a dead
seagull lying on the sand. She asked me, “Dad, what happened to the birdy?”
I told her, “Darling, the bird died and went to heaven.” Then Nichola asked,
‘”So God threw him back down then?”

Abigail’s class went to visit the fire station. The firefighter giving the presentation held up a
smoke detector and asked the class: “Does anyone know what this is?” Straight away Abigail’s

hand shot up and the firefighter called her up to the front. “Can you tell the class what this
does?” he asked. “Yes” Abigail replied, “That’s how Mummy knows dinner is ready!”

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: There are twenty coins sitting on the table, ten are currently heads and
tens are currently tails. You are sitting at the table with a blindfold and
gloves on. You are able to feel where the coins are, but are unable to see or
feel if they heads or tails. You must create two sets of coins. Each set must
have the same number of heads and tails as the other group. You can only
move or flip the coins, you are unable to determine their current state.
How do you create two even groups of coins with the same number of
heads and tails in each group?

2: An Arab sheikh is old and must will his fortune to one of his two sons.
He makes a proposition. His two sons will ride their camels in a race,
and whichever camel crosses the finish line last will win the fortune for
its owner. During the race, the two brothers wander aimlessly for days,
neither willing to cross the finish line. In desperation, they ask a wise
man for advice. He tells them something; then the brothers leap onto the
camels and charge toward the finish line. What did the wise man say?

3: Four gentlemen (Arthur, Bertie, Chester, and Duncan) went to an
expensive restaurant to dine. They checked their coats, hats, gloves,
and canes at the door (each of the gentlemen had one of each). But
when they checked out, there was a mix up, and each of the men ended
up with exactly one article of clothing (a pair of gloves is considered a
single article of clothing) belonging to each one of the four. Arthur and
Bertie ended up with their own coats, Chester ended up with his own
hat, and Duncan ended up with his own gloves. Arthur did not end up
with Chester’s cane. State whose coat, hat, gloves, and cane each of the
gentlemen ended up with.

4: How can you build pig pens so you can put nine pigs in four pens such

that each pen has an odd number of pigs? Answers on page 44

T ra vel Feature -

Booking Ahead...

By Mags Addison

Part of being a Travel Agent is the constantly looking ahead and
planning. That’s because our clients ask us to do this very thing when
sourcing their holidays. So, what better period to look ahead for than the
New Year 2018.

To be fair some clients sorted what they’d planned for early 2018 months
ago – I think my furthest booking ahead is October 2018, and that was
booked back last April. Come January I’ll be looking ahead to Lapland
for a client who wants a special birthday trip in late December 2018;
we’re just waiting for those flights go on sale. But many are already booked for this January, for Easter,
and some for next summer and autumn. The early bird … perhaps gets the bargain.

For some destinations or occasions, you must book ahead. Such as when cruise lines launch a new
season – cruises are always out way ahead of when the connecting flights can be slotted in. If you are
booking Christmas, and especially New Year – forward planning is always advised. Easter time when
you are booking destinations like Disney anywhere – wait for a late deal at this peak time for families
at your peril. Same for New York for Christmas Shopping. Paris, or any European city for New Year.
Dubai at popular times – can make a huge difference in price – so be advised to book early and chose
the best deal, rather leave it and be left with the more expensive pickings.

And let’s not forget school holidays, anniversaries, weddings, and honeymoons, any` date restrictive’
time is always best booked early to get what you actually want – rather than what’s left. Sporting
events (now very popular abroad) also come into this category. So, does anyone who’s looking for
single supplements, supplements free periods, and single room occupancy whether on land, or on a ship.
And long stay holidays.

I put together a lot of tailor made bespoke holidays – especially places like USA, Canada, South
Africa, Australia and New Zealand - many of them self-drive holidays for clients, and we forget that
events and things are happening over different parts of the world also. One year in late September, I
had a huge job with a supplier confirming hotels on a self-drive tour of New Zealand, when the clients
planned to visit the north island around Auckland the following February - a couple of big events
happening over that period meant hotels had already booked.

So, I’ve been busy already doing a selection of enquiries for my clients during November and no doubt
will be in December, for those who wish to look ahead. Clients are planning their next trip before the
busy booking season arrives in early January. It means I have more time to spend looking around for
them. Gets them booked quicker, and more choice of better flight class availability and room types.

Last minute – yes, it’s good not to plan, and to be spontaneous.
That can easily be arranged as well, when you are completely
flexible. And it’s fun to wing it and grab a bargain. Depending
on the holiday type, length and destination that can be done also.

But for the rest of us, we plan head, get it booked, and can then
sit back and dream about it. Happy New Year Everyone – I hope
2018 is a good one for your travel plans.

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

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...

A FRESH attempt to take the heat out of Britain’s
growing residential care crisis will be launched in

Dorset early in the New Year.

Find a care home Care Home Bedfinder enables relatives looking for a
for your loved one. place for their elderly loved ones to search locally via

a new web service. The way it works is that care homes register the beds
they have available with the site, and relatives search

LAUNCHING JANUARY 2018 the site to find a good match for the kind of care they
need...and can afford.

Looking for a care home Company founder Malcolm Whitham says: “When
for a loved one? relatives reach that point in life where they have to put
a parent or grandparent into a home it has to be one

Looking for funding of the most terrifying experiences a family has to go
or any related through.
“Ultimately, it’s about them having to give up their

care advice? liberty and be cared for outside of the family for the
first time.”

Visit Carehome The ambitious service will be launched in Dorset and
Bed Finder. rolled out across the country over the course of the

01202 233463 year. Added Malcolm, 39: “There are currently around

465,000 care beds in the UK with a further 140,000
expected to be needed over the next decade, due to

people living longer.

“Yet there is a real lack of independent and quality information. Relatives generally want their loved ones

living nearby. They also want crucial information on things like funding and inspection reports.

“We offer all the relevant documents - such as the care homes’ official inspection report conducted by the Care

Quality Commission – but also we explain what it means.”

The Care Home Bedfinder site is a database containing information on around 18,500 homes. Relatives can
locate homes close to where they live. Care homes pay an annual fee to sign up. It
means that when a relative finds a home they like, they can send it details of their loved one direct, and
arrange a visit. They will also be able to read reviews from other users of the care home. Each elderly resident
will have their own ‘passport’ on the site showing their interests and background to try match them to an
appropriate type of home.

For the NHS, it means they will be able to book vacant care beds online directly, if the home feels able to
meet the patient’s needs. “We hope it will alleviate the problem of bed blocking as it means NHS Trusts won’t
have to spend hours ringing around care homes for a suitable bed,” said Malcolm, who has worked with care
homes for 14 years as a supplier.
“No wonder it’s such an emotional journey for siblings which is why we want to give them as much help as
possible - to take the emotion out of it.”

The idea was prompted by the sheer number of people having a traumatic time trying to find care.
“A friend of mine had to put her father in care. Unfortunately, he was suffering from dementia, and she had
real problems finding a suitable place.
“In the end she was forced to accept second best because of a perceived lack of choice, and she regrets her
decision to this day.”

A student named Jacob was sitting in class one day and the teacher walked by and he asked
her “How do you put an elephant in the fridge?” The teacher said “I don’t know, how?” Jacob
then said “You open the door and put it in there!” Then Jacob asked the teacher another question
“How do you put a girraffe in the fridge?” The teacher then replied “Ohh I know this one, you
open the door and put it in there?” Jacob said “No, you open the door, take the elephant out, and
then you put it in there.” Then he asked another question...”All the animals went to the tigers
birthday party, except one animal, which one was it?” The teacher a bit confused and said “The
tiger?” Then the student said “No,the girraffe because he’s still in the fridge.” then he asked
her just one more question....”If there is a river full of crocodiles and you wanted to get across
it,how would you” The teacher then says “You would walk over the bridge.” Then Jacob says

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

A Happy New year from us all at North Bournemouth Allotment Society.
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
seed will always produce better crops.
• Pruning Gooseberries, Currents and Autumn Raspberries.
• Apply some Sulphate of Potash around the base of fruit plants.
• Winter wash your fruit trees.
• If you have stored any Dahlia tubers, check that they are not rotting and if so remove the damaged
• Get out your hand tools and machinery, clean them up, sharpen and straighten.
Do make sure any petrol motors are lubricated and still operate.
• If you didn’t sow Broad Beans in early winter then for a quick start you
can plant them now in pots.
• Clear any plant debris from the ground and allow any frost to break up the
soil and kill off the pests.
• Plan your vegetable crop rotation so as not to grow the same crop in the
same place as last year.
• Put out clean, fresh food regularly both hanging and on the ground.
Do not leave old feed lying around it brings in unwanted wildlife.

Gardening Tips for February

February in the garden or plot is all about preparing the soil or seed bed for planting once the weather
warms up. Once the ground has been prepared and you are hoping for an early start it should be covered
with clear polythene sheeting, fleece or cloches to warm up the soil below.
Do remember to peg the covers down.
Chit your seed potatoes. This is easy and necessary. Get a cardboard egg tray or fruit box from your
supermarket and stand the potatoes upright showing the most eyes on top. Place indoors in the light
away from frost. When the sprouts (chits) are 2” to 3” long they are ready for planting.

If you are new to gardening or would like to improve the results from your efforts it might prove helpful
to get your soil tested. The cost of a test is not cheap at around £30 but the quality of the soil changes
very little over 3 to 5 years so the cost could be well worth it. The Royal Horticultural Society offers this
service mailto:[email protected] The RHS carry out tests for Potassium, Magnesium and
Phosphorus (the most important nutrients after Nitrogen). They also carry out tests to establish the Ph
balance of the soil, acidity or alkalinity. You will also be advised how to improve your soil along with
the test results.
You must provide a good sample of your soil. This can be done by taking samples across the area for
cultivation. Take about 10 samples from a ‘W’ shaped pattern. Scrape away the top surface and dig a
trowel depth hole. Place some soil from the sides of each hole in a bucket and mix thoroughly, this will
form your soil sample. All the other information you require will be sent to you by the RHS with your
soil sample pack. Good luck.

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.
