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. Join me today on a trip to Mars! Just kidding - we are actually at the National
Botanic Gardens of Wales.

In the Doctor Who episode The Waters of Mars (2009) the
Tenth Doctor visits Bowie Base One on November 21st 2059
and the National Botanic Garden was used as the filming
location for Biodome 1. In Doctor Who Confidential, it said
that scriptwriter Russell T Davies had the Botanic Garden in
mind when he wrote the story.

The Botanic Garden is in Carmarthenshire. This is the most
visited garden in Wales and was opened in May 2000, the
first botanic garden of the new millennium and it is built on
parkland dating back 400 years. When I arrived I walked
through the Broadwalk to The Rock of Ages which tells the
story of 300 million years of Welsh geology. I found a rock from Silurian times. In Doctor
Who we learnt that the Silurians are lizard like creatures that have lived on earth since pre-
historic times -longer than us humans. This rock was 431 million years old!

Next I went into The Great Glasshouse aka Bowie Base
One’s Biodome 1. This is the world’s largest single span
glasshouse and is based on the shape of a raindrop. It has
an amazing indoor display of Mediterranean climate plants
and protects and conserves many endangered plants.
These plants come from six areas of the world - California,
Australia, the Canary Islands, Chile, South Africa and the
Mediterranean Basin and it feels like you are travelling the
world in Wales! It was sweltering inside the dome, a lot
warmer than the Welsh climate.

In The Waters of Mars the Tenth Doctor meets the first human colonists of Mars, led by
Captain Adelaide Brooke. I found out that the glasshouse is the same climate as Adelaide,
one of two places in Australia that has a Mediterranean climate. I wonder if that is how
Russell T Davies came up with her name?

I really enjoyed my time at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, it was a fantastic way
to spend a relaxing day. I didn’t see The Waters of Mars but I did find a lovely indoor
waterfall, complete with fish. I missed out on seeing a Ghost Forest - so if I ever get the
chance to go again that is the first thing I will do!

If you would like to read about my other Doctor Who adventures please check out my blog.
Thanks for reading, goodbye!

Take care of your feet... Wearing sandals

Summer is here and we have cast off our winter shoes
and are into sandals again. Will last years sandals do
another season or do they look rather tired and worn?
Perhaps a trip to buy some new cool sandals is in order.
Choose a shoe shop that has trained staff who
understand shoe fitting to get the correct style and size
for your feet. Remember not to wear them out f the
shop, but to take them home and wear them indoors to
ensure they are comfortable and a good fit. Most stores
will allow you to exchange footwear if it has only been
worn indoors, but it is best to always check when purchasing.

The style of sandals is obviously a personal choice, but there
are features that can make a difference. If they are to be worn
for long periods then they should have a closed in back to
prevent calluses forming, and splits in the heels which can
be very painful.
The worst style for your feet is the wooden soled sandal that
only has a strap across the fore foot to keep it on, and the
wearer has to ‘claw’ their toes to keep them on.

The golden mule is the more closed in type of sandal, giving more support to your feet
which means at the end of the day you are less likely to have tired, aching feet. Sandals
provide ventilation helping to reduce perspiration and odour and make the feet feel more

Cotton socks, which are more absorbent than man-made materials, make all footwear
more comfortable by reducing rubbing and friction. Thank goodness wearing ‘trainer’
socks in sandals is not such a taboo anymore.

Foot Facts.
1. Each foot produces on average an egg cup full of
perspiration every day
2. 70% of foot problems are a direct result of ill fitting shoes
3. Leonardo da Vinci was absolutely spot on when he

described the foot as a masterpiece of engineering.

A All Saints Church

Castlemain Avenue, Southbourne BH6 5EH

7:15 - Saturday 15th September

All Saints Church are putting on a production called “Would You Adam & Eve It?”
by the Searchlight Theatre Company.

Ticket prices are £8 in advance (£10 on door), child £5.
Tickets can be obtained from the church office by phoning 01202 253983.

Refreshments will be available.

‘Would You Adam & Eve It?’ shows what happens if you tell two chaps
who like to make people laugh; dramatise all 90 chapters from the first two

books of the Bible.
With a few strategic speedy bits to help it achieve a 90 minute running time

- it has amazed audiences around the world for the last 9 years, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

A little girl was out shopping with her mum and the shop assistant asked her her
name. The little girl replied proudly, “I’m Mr. Carmichael’s daughter.” Her mother told

her this was wrong, and that the she must say, “I’m Catherine Carmichael”
The following weekend at Sunday school the vicar said to the girl, “Aren’t you
Mr. Carmichael’s daughter?” She replied, “I thought I was, but mother says I’m not.”

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.

Brain Power

1: During a recent Cluedo weekend, four games were played.
In one game Miss Scarlet used the spanner, but not in the library.
In another game the rope was used in the study, but not by Colonel Mustard.
During one game the gun was used in the conservatory, whilst in another game
Professor Plum was not to be found in the library. Colonel Mustard was never in the
conservatory and Mrs White never used the rope.
The lead piping may or may not have been used in the kitchen.
Can you determine who used what and where?

2: During World War II, the mathematician Abraham Wald was asked to help with
determining which parts of the allied forces planes must be armoured better. After
examining the surviving American planes, he noticed that there were many holes in
the fuselage, and very few in the engines. After careful thinking, he suggested that
the armour on the engines must be improved. Why?

3: In London, many Underground tube stations have two escalators going up, but
just one going down. Why?

4: You are walking home, alone on the street. There are no stars on the sky, no
moonlight, all of the street lamps are broken, you don’t carry any source of light
with you and there aren’t any cars or other people approaching. A black cat tries
to cross your way, but you somehow spot it and turn around in order to avoid bad
luck. How did you see the cat?

5: The police found a murdered man in a car. The windows of the car were raised,
the doors were locked, and the keys were inside, in the man’s hands. The man was
shot several times with a gun, but there were no holes anywhere on the car. How is
this possible?

6: 99 unique numbers between 1 and 100 are listed one by one, with 5 seconds pause
between every two consecutive numbers. If you are not allowed to take any notes,
what is the best way to figure out which is the missing number?

7: One snowy night, Sherlock Holmes was in his house sitting by a fire. All of a
sudden a snowball came crashing through the window, breaking it. Holmes got
up and looked out just in time to see three neighbourhood kids who were brothers
run around the corner. Their names were John Crimson, Mark Crimson and Paul
The next day Holmes got a note on his door that read:

“? Crimson. He broke your window.”

Which of the three Crimson brothers should Sherlock Holmes question about the

incident? Answers on page 44

into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice,
“Mummy, will you stay with me tonight?” The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring

hug. “I can’t dear,” she said. “I have to sleep in Daddy’s room.”
A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice, “The big sissy.”

Colm Boyle - e-Cycles Centre

It was in Barcelona that I came across my first
electric bicycle. Ridden by an ex-pat he stopped
for a chat and let me have a go. After a quick ride
along the beautiful sea front and up La Ramblas,
I was hooked.

So, e-Cycles Centre was born. A shop dedicated
to the sales and maintenance of electric bicycles.
Wimborne Road in Moordown was the obvious
choice for the shop. A bustling street with plenty
of parking and quiet streets for test rides.

The bikes have come a long way since my ride in Barcelona. Much lighter more powerful with
a range of over 100 miles. All bikes are available for demo rides. No appointment is necessary.
Everyone who has a test ride comes back with a huge smile and no wonder. Riding up hills like
Sea Road, Constitution Hill or the Alder Hills is effortless. Use the power as much or as little
as you want.

Exercise and environmentally friendly, what a combination and less than 10 pence to fully
recharge the battery.
A range of step throughs, cross bars and foldables are available. I was riding through
Moordown recently on a beautiful sunny day and I thought, who needs Barcelona.
I am open 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Saturday but will adjust these times to suit any customer.

Travel Feature -
Travel For The Over 50s ...
By Mags Addison

People are living longer – and travelling for longer. The older travelling
public of today, are nothing like they were 20 or more years ago.
We are all growing older in a different way, and at a different speed to
previous generations. And the travel industry is now starting to wake up
to this fact, and offering more holidays geared to older clients. However,
these are clients who are still fairly young at heart, and adventurous, despite
maybe having to make some considerations, like a few walking difficulties,
mobility issues, and having to read the small print on a larger font.

They say 70 is the new 50 and so on – whether you believe it depends on the state of your health and
mobility, your bank balance perhaps, and your mental attitude. More importantly, they say the aging
population in the UK, is remaining much younger and fitter for a greater number of years. And the
term over 50 is such a wide sweep, certainly in terms of health, and lifestyle. One huge inconsistency
is with Travel Insurance – the cost can escalate a lot once you are over those 70 plus benchmarks. But
that doesn’t stop people wanting to travel. Hopefully that will change in time, with more and more
people living longer and healthier so it becomes the norm to base it on health not just age.

Personally, I think it’s more to do with retaining, or maintaining a sense of adventure than a bank
balance to want to travel, and there are many who have the means to spread their wings, but equally
so, there are many more on a restricted income.

But you don’t have to travel the world in luxury, cruise non-stop, or winter elsewhere to take advantage
of the free time, and a zest to keep exploring. Plus, you can do it in the UK as well as abroad – all
that’s needed is to retain a sense of curiosity and a willingness to explore. You can do that exploring in
Calcutta, Cape Town, or in the Cotswolds.

There are deals around and a way to see places! So therefore, it is heartening to realise there are tour
operators out there who cater for the needs of the silver generation – and the days of settling for the
sedate coach holidays are gone – unless that’s what you want.

I went to an awards ceremony in London recently, where the very best in travel for the over 50s was
celebrated. Being over a certain age, doesn’t mean your travel plans need to be boring. Not when
some of your contemporaries are bungee jumping in New Zealand, or trekking in the Andes, or just
strolling around London.

There are now a growing number of specialist Assessible Tour Companies making travel for people with
disabilities easier - and making it more accessible for everyone. I am
increasingly having requests for wheelchair assistance at airports,
sharps boxes for clients with Diabetes or hiring of mobility scooters
in resort. We are used to taking a remit and making sure hotels are
on the flat, a ground floor room request put on the booking, and
dietary requests.

It’s the little things – that aren’t so little when it makes the difference
between a pleasant stay, and a nightmare.

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

Do You Know About Raw Food For Cats & Dogs?

For generations, dog owners have been buying bags and/or
tins of pet food. Many people still do this today. Some pet food
brands are more expensive than others and there are several
foods today that claim to be all natural. Over the past few years,
more and more owners have been switching their dogs and cats
to a raw food diet.

Dogs, unlike cats, also need a mix of vegatables with their meat. We can supply these in addition
to the raw foods or you can also choose from a selection of premixed meat/vegetable packs.

Benefits of a Raw Food Diet:
Owners who take their dogs for a walk in public areas are required to clean up the dog’s poop
after he goes. If you find that your dog’s pooh is soft and sometimes runny, it can make cleaning
up after him a very disgusting job. If you start your dog on a raw dog food diet, you will notice
that his stools are firmer and much easier to clean up.(It’s a lot less smelly too!)

It is not uncommon for dogs to have digestion issues when they eat bagged or canned dog food.
Some dogs get very gassy, which can be pretty bad for anyone who is in the room with the dog.
Some dogs vomit after a big meal. If you start your dog on a raw dog food diet, he will get a
daily supplement of probiotics, making digestion easier.

If you have ever seen a wolf or a wild dog, you know that they often have beautiful, shiny coats.
This is because they are eating a raw dog food diet on their own. This diet will give your dog all
the vitamins and minerals that he needs to keep his coat and his skin healthy.

Many dogs have yellow teeth, infected gums, and very bad breath. This can due to the fact that
they don’t brush and floss every day and because they are eating manafactured dog food.
When you switch your dog to a raw food diet, his teeth and gums will be healthier and his breath
will smell much better.

The carbs in bagged dog food can give your dog a huge spike of energy, only to have him crash
later. The additives in commercial dog food can have the same effect. If your dog is overly hyper
for a while after eating and then strangely lethargic shortly after, you should switch him to a raw
food diet. Raw food will keep your dog’s energy level at an even keel.

It is not uncommon for dogs who are fed commercial dog food to become overweight.
This is not the case on a raw food diet. This diet is very high in protein, making it the most
weight-friendly option.

Still unsure? Come in to see us, we have a very wide range of raw foods for cats & dogs and can
help you decide what to start on depending on your pet.

by singing tunes that are familiar and pleasing for our audiences.
”Bourne2Sing” has grown hugely in popularity and our success can be gauged from the
continued number of repeat bookings that we receive.
Performances are given in two segments and presented by a Compere
with a Guest Artiste solo spot in each half of the Concert.

Future Concerts are:

21st September: St Mark’s Church, Highcliffe BH23 5AB
In Aid Of Fund Raising For “The Friends Of St Mark’s”
13th October: St John’s Church, Broadstone BH18 8AR

In Aid Of Fund Raising For “The Mayor Of Wareham’s Charity”

(All Performances commence 7.30pm)

Who has the most neck bones ? A giraffe or a mouse?
They both have the same which is seven. In fact all mammals have the same amount except
sloths and manatees. Two-toed sloths only have six verterbrae and as such have difficulty
turning their necks.
It’s the birds who have to turn their heads and twist their necks to preen that have the
most. Ducks surprisingly for their size have sixteen but mute swans take the record with an
incredible twenty-five!
Even though owls have a reasonable fourteen verterbrae they are unable to turn their heads
a full 360 degrees as some people believe. however they can manage a respectable 270
degrees. It’s not just the number of verterbrae that allow them to do this but also a special
set of muscles that allow the bones to move independently of each other. This extra mobility
is essential since owls are unable to move their eyes. To look in a different direction an owl
therefore has to turn its head. The forward facing aspect of an owls eyes increases their
binocular vision, allowing them to hunt more effectively.
Their large eyes also improve their night vision by increasing the amount of light they can can
capture. Coupled with a large retina a tawny owl for example has eyes 100 times more senstive
to light than ours. At a light level equivalent to a candle an owl would still be able to see a
mouse on the ground up to around 500 metres away.

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

August / September - Gardeners Tips

Glorious August in the garden or allotment, such a busy time of year. So much to do that for this month
only this feature is going to be lists. Sorry.
• If the ground is dry or you are going away give pots and the plot a good soaking.
• Harvest what you can, there will be lots. Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Artichokes (We have our first Globe
Artichoke this year), Carrots, Climbing Beans, Beetroot

(Break off the leaves of Beetroot rather than cut and do not cut the root until cooked).
• Onions and Shallots may be ready but do let them dry in the sun before storing indoors.
• Keep a look out for pests and diseases. We spoke about Blossom End Rot on Tomatoes (caused by
irregular watering) and Flea Beetles on your Brassicas & Rocket (identified by small holes appearing on
the leaves) they do no harm to the plant but do make the leaves less appetising.
• Be prepared for Potato Blight (leaves becoming blotchy black & grey) cut the tops off to the earth.
The Potatoes underground will be quite OK until you are ready to harvest.
• Once fruiting has finished cut back Summer Fruiting Raspberry canes to the ground.
• On a dry day, collect seeds that you want for next year. Such as Aquilegia & Sweet Peas.
• Keep deadheading of perennials and Dahlias for a continuing display.
• Plant Autumn bulbs such as Colchicums (look like Crocuses) and Nerines in borders or pots. We
planted Colchicums last year around the base of a Silver Birch amongst the Cyclamen Hederifolium. It
became a lovely woodland scene.
• For the wildlife….Leave out a water bowl for Hedgehogs : If you have house Martins create a mud pat
for nest building and before cutting your hedge do check for late brooding Blackbirds or Thrushes.

What to do in the garden or plot in September? Well, as I write this column in July the temperature
outside is 29 degrees C (84F) and we have had no significant rain in the last 60 days. Many crops and
flowers expected in September are here now or even past their best. We are having the most glorious of
summers and it looks like there is little change on the horizon.
There are some jobs in September that we must do regardless of conditions. The following thoughts are
for guidance only under normal conditions.
In the greenhouse:
The Tomatoes and Cucumbers are probably over so clear out the dying or dead plants and any other
detritus, giving it a good clean prior to new sowing and planting for overwintering plants.
Sow Winter Salads of Rocket, Lettuce and mixed leaves, they all should do well and keep you in green
leaves for many weeks. Sow hardy annuals for early flowering next year. Take cuttings of your tender
plants that may not survive the winter.
In the Vegetable Garden:
Cut to ground level the Asparagus fronds once they turn yellow and mulch with well rotted manure.

Plant Garlic and Winter Onion Sets for next year. If you have healthy
Strawberries you can create new plants from the suckers for next year.
If you have not done so, dig up your main crop Potatoes before the slugs
attack. Look out for tiny holes in the potato, which is the tell-tale sign that
a slug has eaten his way inside. If you cut the potato before cooking you
will be able to remove any offenders then.
In the Garden:
Empty any hanging baskets or pots. Cover your pond to help it remain free
from leaf drop. The lawn may have had a bad time so repairs to bare patches will be necessary. Many
supermarkets sell kits at very reasonable prices, we have used them to very good effect.

Pupils put new SafeWise tours to the test

mouth Local charity SafeWise has joined forces with St Mary’s Primary School
in Wareham and Damory coaches to help develop new Junior Citizen tours
which are set to be rolled out to thousands of pupils from September.

St Mary’s is the last of five Dorset schools to trial and feedback on the new tours, which focus on

equipping children aged five to 11 with skills for life, at SafeWise centres in Bournemouth and Weymouth.

Year two pupils spent four hours at SafeWise Bournemouth’s indoor safety village testing out a range of

interactive scenarios based around fire, road and water safety plus healthy choices, online safety, journey

planning, first aid and more.

SafeWise Bournemouth Manager Elise St.Hill said: “I’d like to thank all the schools which have visited

to test out our new Junior Citizen programme, they have provided invaluable feedback which we will use

to fine tune the tours. “The Junior Citizen schools programme aims to provide realistic and immersive

learning experiences to equip children with the skills, knowledge and confidence to live active, fulfilling

and safer lives in the real world.

“The new tour represents a really good step forward, such as the clever voting system, real car which the

children can get into as well as other situations where they recognise danger and deal with it. “It’s a nice,

secure environment for the children to learn in and all the helpers are really down to earth, so the pupils

feel confident asking questions and are not afraid to have a go and try different things around the centre.”
