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. Time travel with
me for a trip down Memory Lane to the West Wales Museum of
Childhood in ….West Wales!

The museum is at Pen-ffynnon, 1 mile from Llangeler in
Carmarthenshire. There is a tea room and a gift shop and the
museum has 10,000 exhibits! A warm welcome is offered to
‘everyone who is - or ever has been - a child’.
The museum was created by Paul and Hilary Kennelly and Vic
Davey to display the toys and memorabilia that they have been
collecting for most of their lives. They bought the farm, Pen-ffynnon, in August 2002 and
gradually turned it into the place we are visiting today. I had a good chat with Hilary and
she told me that she met the Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee, many years ago.

When I arrived I went into the ‘Oriel Amser’ (Gallery of Time )
which is a timeline of the 20th Century with memorabilia and
display of toys to look at. Next to this is a stable where you can
see costumes and traditions from Wales, and an antique toyshop
window ‘Siop Deganau’ displaying Welsh toys.
Next door is a barn full of little metal toys and an old school
room that shows you what school was like in Wales’ old days.
Next is the carthouse which contains train sets and a huge
collection of Action Man toys.

Finally we come to my favourite bit - the Doctor Who stuff in the Television and Film
Gallery! It contains lots of merchandise from film and television over the last 60 years.
At the entrance is a magnificent mural painted by Paul, depicting a Dalek exterminating a
TV , whilst the Eleventh Doctor and James Bond have a sonic weapon-off!

The room is crammed with Sci-Fi treasures including an original Dalek Dress-up suit from
1965. I would recommend any Doctor Who fans to go and see this collection.
There are A LOT of special Doctor Who treasures which have been happily collected and
displayed for you to enjoy. It was lovely to look at the toys and imagine what it would have
been like to be a Doctor Who fan 50 years ago and I even saw some items from my own
toybox. If you are ever in Carmarthenshire make sure you stop off and see it for yourself!

I hope you have enjoyed learning about this museum. If you would like to read about my
other Doctor Who adventures please check out my blog. Thanks for reading, goodbye!

Tom Project Indigo --

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth
reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed recently.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote ‘The Hokie Cokey’ died peacefully at the age of 93.
The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.
They put his left leg in... and then the trouble started!

Chidrens TV...
1. Learn the names of every character from the Wiggles, Barney, Teletubbies, The Night
Garden and Disney. 2. Watch nothing else on television for at least 5 years.
Messy house...
1. Smear peanut butter onto the sofa and jam onto the curtains 2. Hide a fish behind the
dvd player and leave it there all summer 3. Stick your fingers in the flowerbeds and then rub
them on clean walls. Cover the stains with crayon. How does that look?
4. Empty every drawer/cupboard/storage box in your house onto the floor & leave it there.
Car journeys...

“To the bitter end”

An expression with a nautical origin from around the mid 19th century, although nothing
to do with bitterness. The end of a rope or chain was secured in a chain locker, but when
there was no windlass the cables were fastened to ‘bitts’ - pairs of bollards fixed to the deck.

When the rope is let out until there is none left and the end of the rope is at the bitts.

Did you know....

The average human body contains enough iron to make a 3 inch nail, sulphur to kill
all the fleas on an average sized dog and enough carbon to make 900 pencils. Enough

potassium to fire a toy cannon, fat to make 7 bars of soap, phosphorous to make
2,200 match heads and enough water to fill a ten-gallon tank. There are 45 miles of

nerves in our skin and over 600 muscles, 40% of the body’s weight.
A cough releases an explosive charge of air that moves at speeds up to 60 mph but
a sneeze can exceed the speed of 100 mph. A healthy individual releases 3.5 oz. of gas
in a single flatulent emission, or about 17 oz. in a day! The sound of a snore (up to 69

You deserve a rest... So be served by the best


First Question: You are in a race and you overtake the last person, what position
are you in now? If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong.
Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person? Now answer the second question,
but try harder this time ok? Same race but now you overtake the second person.
What position are you in? If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely
wrong!! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!
OK.. let’s try some maths. This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper
and pencil or a calculator. Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000 . Now
add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What
is the total? Did you get 5000? Wrong wrong wrong.... the correct answer is actually
4100. If you don’t believe it, you can now get your calculator! Today is definitely not
your day, is it? How about a little logical thinking? Mary’s father has five daughters:
1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter? Did you
Answer Nunu? Thought so, but worng again! Of course it isn’t. Her name is Mary.
Read the question again! Okay, now the bonus round: A mute person goes into a
shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing his teeth he
successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done. Next, a
blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of dark glasses. How does he
indicate what he wants? Don’t know? Well he just has to open his mouth and ask...

he’s blind not dumb! It’s really very simple.....

Independent Estate Agents & Valuers

Top Tips For Selling Your House

First Impression – This can be make or break. If a potential purchaser is put off before
the entering the front door then it’s over before its begun. Take a look at the outside of
your home as a stranger might see it. It might be winter and very wet but for a small
sum or some time and energy you could tidy the garden, paint your front door and get
a sale.

Tidy – Be obsessive about this, as it is a make or break to a prospective client. Our
advice is to have a seriously good clear out before you put the house on the market
– even if you bundle up your prized possessions and take them off site. Prospective
buyers want to see clean lines and uncluttered work surfaces that create a feeling of

Clean – Fresh, sparkling and inviting would be perfect. Hard to achieve when you
have an active life with pets and children, but the cleaner your house is the easier it is
to sell. If you cant face the task we can put you in touch with someone who will provide
a full deep clean for your home.

Bathrooms – Generally we don’t advise sellers to refit a bathroom prior to sale –
unless it is really ghastly. Do the obvious instead – re-grout, re-silicon, fluffy towels,
pleasant scent, clean and spotless please.

Kitchen – Spare a thought for the poor estate agent as you dash out of the house
without loading the dishwasher! We want to take pride in your house when we show
clients around and leftover breakfast is not the first thing they want to see as they enter
the kitchen.

Brief the agent – The more we are prepared to answer questions about your house
the easier it will be to sell it and allay any fears that prospective buyers may have.
As an estate agent we dislike not having the answers. And we particularly dislike not
knowing how your gadgetry works so please do show us how to use the iPad entry
system, the drop down cinema and the fancy lighting system. If we make it look easy
the clients will love it. If we don’t know how it works, then they won’t.

Odour – It may seem trivial but the aroma of your house is really very important when
you are selling. A simple diffuser discretely hidden in the hall could do the trick. Some
people proffer the advice of coffee and home baked bread but be realistic. It could
take a few weeks to sell your home and you cannot be there ready to turn on the bread
maker at the drop of a hat.

Animals – People’s pets are much loved by the owner but very often just the owner
and not necessarily the person that is going to buy the house. Pets also can have quite
a strong odour, not to mention the litter trays, food bowls and clutter that goes with
having an animal in the house. Try to keep pet evidence to a minimum.

JOHN A woman called an airline
customer-service desk asking if she
could take her dog on the plane.
“Sure,” she was told, “as long as you
provide your own kennel.” The advisor
further explained that the kennel needed
to be large enough for the dog to stand
up, sit down, turn around, and roll over.

The customer was flummoxed:
“I’ll never be able to teach him all of that

by tomorrow!”

After a talking sheepdog gets all the
sheep in the pen, he reports back to the

farmer: “All 40 accounted for.”
“But I only have 37 sheep,” says the
farmer. “I know,” says the sheepdog.

“But I rounded them up.”

Why do dogs always race to the door
when the doorbell rings?
It’s hardly ever for them.

Brain Power

1: Mr. Slow, Mr. Medium, Mr. Fast, and Mr. Speed must cross a rickety rope bridge
in 17 minutes. The bridge can carry at most two people at a time. Furthermore, it’s
dark, and there is only one torch; any single person or pair of people crossing the
bridge must have the torch with them. (The bridge is too wide for the torch to be
thrown; it must be carried across.)
Each man walks at a different speed. A pair travelling together must walk at the rate
of the slower man. Mr. Slow can cross the bridge in at most 10 minutes;
Mr. Medium can cross in 5 minutes; Mr. Fast can cross in 2 minutes;
Mr. Speed can cross in 1 minute.

How do all four men get across in the bridge in 17 minutes?

2: You want to send a valuable object to a friend securely.
You have a box which can be fitted with multiple locks, and you have several locks
and their corresponding keys.
However, your friend does not have any keys to your locks, and if you send a key in
an unlocked box, the key could be copied en route.

How can you and your friend send the object securely?

3: An explorer was trekking through a remote jungle when he was captured by
logic-loving cannibals.
He was brought before the chief and told,

“You may now speak your last words.
If your statement is true, then we will burn you at the stake.
If your statement is false, we will boil you in oil.”
The man thought for a moment, then made his statement.
The clever cannibals realised they could do nothing but let him go.

What did the explorer tell them?

My Health My Way

My Health My Way offers a new course to support people in Bournemouth and Poole
living with long-term health conditions

My Health My Way is running another one of their popular free courses to support people in Bournemouth and
Poole who have long-term health conditions and/or their carers.

Commissioned by Dorset CCG and delivered by local charity Help & Care, My Health My Way offers self-
management support for individuals aged over 18 who suffer from a long-term health condition and live in
Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole, or are registered in a GP practice within these areas.

The service provides one to one health coaching sessions, either face to face in local GP surgeries or
community venues or over the phone. With up to six sessions of 45 mins, the focus is on listening to the
person’s story, exploring changes they might want to make or challenges they are facing and supporting them
with problem solving and goal setting to move forwards.

Since 2014, My Health My Way has been running courses, facilitated by experienced coaches in community
group settings. The course has various workshops that cover topics such as working with healthcare
professionals, managing anxiety and relaxation, asking for help, connecting to support, communicating our
needs and feeling and understanding self-management.

The course also offers a good opportunity for attendees to meet other people with similar experiences. People
who have been on these courses often comment how helpful it is to realise they are not alone, to share ideas
and feel supported to try new techniques to feel more confident.

One of the last year’s attendees said: “I plucked up the courage to go and it’s probably the best thing I’ve done.
It’s nice to know you’re not alone and to share ideas with the group.”

Given its popularity, My Health My Way is running another course in spring 2018. This year’s course will
take place on 24th April, 1st May, 8th May and 15th May 2018, from 2pm to 4pm (including a break with
refreshments) at Kinson Community Hub.

Naomi Unwin, Service Manager of My Health My Way & Advocacy Services said: “It is always a pleasure to
see how the individuals on the course bond and support each other to grow in confidence.
People get so much from being able to share not only their experiences but also their learning to help others.
In their feedback on the courses, people talk about the skills and ideas they’ve picked up and how it has really
helped them grow in confidence.”

We are now open to referrals and we encourage anyone meeting the eligibility criteria to get in touch via
phone or email to apply for a place.
We also accept referrals from clinical and non-clinical staff working in health, social care or voluntary sector.

Anyone interested in the course, or on one to one support, please call 0303 303 0153
or email [email protected].

My husband and I were dressed and ready to go out for a lovely evening of dinner and
theatre. We turned on the porch light and the answering machine, then put the cat in the
backyard. When our cab arrived, we walked out our front door and our rather tubby cat scooted
between our legs inside, then ran up the stairs. Because our cat likes to try and get at our budgie
we really didn’t want to leave them unchaperoned so my husband ran inside to retrieve her and
put her in the back yard again. Because we had been burgled a few years ago, I didn’t want the
taxi driver to know our house was going to be empty all evening, I told him that my husband
would be out momentarily as he was just bidding goodnight to my mother. A few minutes later
he got into the cab all hot and bothered, and as the cab pulled away said (to my growing horror
and amusement). “Sorry it took so long but the stupid bitch was hiding under the bed and I had
to poke her arse with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her
by the neck and wrapped her in a blanket so she wouldn’t scratch me like she did last time. But it
worked! I hauled her overwight lump down the stairs and threw her into the backyard....she had
better not crap in the vegetable patch again.” The silence in the taxi was deafening....

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...

Howdy folks I am Toby, a handsome American Bulldog cross with
soft fur that is so good to touch. I am looking for a lively home
that will be big enough for my goofy play. I am very well behaved
indoors and out. I walk well on the lead most times but still need
training with that. I like running around so if you have a big
garden that would be a bonus. The best toy I have is a rope with
knots on it, I can keep myself entertained with that for some time.
It’s such fun shaking it around that I get dizzy, hence the goofy play. I know the basics such as sit,
stay, leave and some other stuff but I would like to learn more. If you have the time to teach me I
will be your best student. Please call the office to find out how to get to meet me.

Ps: I give good hugs

A dog walks into a job center. ‘Wow, a talking dog,’ says the clerk. ‘With your talent I’m sure
we can find you a gig in the circus.’ ‘The circus?’ says the dog. ‘
What does a circus want with a plumber?’

Walking past a veterinary clinic, a woman noticed a small boy and his dog waiting outside. ‘Are
you here to see Dr Meyer?’ she asked. ‘Yes,’ the boy said. ‘I’m having my dog put in neutral.’
A woman pulled into a crowded car park and rolled down the rear windows to make sure her
Irish setter had sufficient fresh air when she went shopping.
The dog was stretched out on the back seat, and the woman wanted to impress upon him that
he must remain there. She backed away from the car, pointing her finger at the car and saying
emphatically, ‘Now you stay. Do you hear me? Stay,’ in a very firm voice.
The driver of a nearby car gave the woman a concerned look. ‘I don’t know about you, lady,’
he said incredulously. ‘But I usually just put my handbrake on!’

There is no denying it,
cats do not like being

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

May/ June. New Gardeners Tips for Sowing & Growing.

Sowing outside requires good soil preparation, it should be as fine as you can get it and if possible spread
some Blood, Fish & Bone fertilizer a few days before sowing. Mark out the lines (drills) you intend to
sow, straight lines make measuring easier. At the recommended depth, sow as directed before gently
covering with soil. Do not forget to label your rows and cover with a net cloche for bird protection.
Pricking Out, Hardening Off & Growing On : Pricking out or thinning is done to help your new
seedlings grow stronger prior to planting in position or ‘growing on’.
When the seedlings have 2 good leaves or first true leaves of the plant
you can prick out and plant individually into further cells or pots. At this
time the plant is tender, so handle them by the leaf only. Once they are
stronger you may decide the time is right to ‘harden off’ by moving the
young plants into a cold frame or protected position before planting out
or ‘growing on’. Some plants will need potting on a few times before they
can go outside. In any case do not be in too much of a hurry to do so and
always bring them in if there is a danger of a cold wind or frost.

Thinning Out & Inter Cropping : It is most likely that outside sowings have become overcrowded.
That is to say each individual plant will not have enough space to grow into maturity. If so you will
have to ‘Thin Out’ to sacrifice some of the seedlings to create space, discard or try to re-plant in another
prepared row.
Where you have limited space coupled with unlimited enthusiasm you might like to try your hand at
‘Inter-Cropping’. This is the technique whereby you can increase your variety of crops by sneaking
in additional rows of other plants. When the initial crop is reaching the later stages of maturity you
can sow or plant seedlings close by in another row thus doubling your productivity. There are some
easy examples for new growers such as….Lettuces accompanied by Radishes….Garlic accompanied
by Carrots.…Onions accompanied by Beetroot….Florence Fennel accompanied by Rocket & Lamb’s
Lettuce and loads more ideas. Have a go, it can be great fun.

From June onwards you should keep on top of watering. Your garden
and vegetable plot should be flowering or some providing delicious early
fruit. It is at this time of year we start to get concerned about watering.
This is especially true for containers, hanging baskets and anything you
have recently planted. Almost all plants that fail in their first year do so
as a result of poor watering. This is best done with collected rain water
following a warm dry even windy spell. Open up the soil to a depth of 3-5
cm (1–2”) if it is wet, leave well alone. If the soil is dry do not just sprinkle
water around, each plant should receive a thorough soaking to get the
water down into the root system. It is better to give a lot at long intervals rather than a drip frequently.
Do remember that container grown plants dry out quicker than those in the ground. Also any hanging
baskets should be watered most regularly of all as when they dry out they lose their ability to retain the
water you are giving. Remember also to give a little extra feed from time to time during this period.
Those expensive shrubs or trees you have purchased this year you must continue the watering for up a
further 2 to 3 years.
You may have lost hedging plants from last season. Whilst it is too late for bare rooted plants. The gaps
left can be filled by using container grown replacements such as Laurel, Hornbeam, Privet and Beech. If
growing in containers, now is a good time to plant Box, Yew and perhaps a pair of Bay trees you can clip
in coming years to form Pom Pom shapes.
