If you are following my advice and reading the 10 doctors you might find a continuity problem with page 5 and Time Crash.

You have to remember that there are different spots in the time line here. The events of Time Crash have already happened to the 5th doctor so he recognizes his future self, while Time crash is at least one year in the 10th doctors timeline.

What you’ve never heard of Time Crash? That is because it was a special broadcast for the annual Children in Need event in England. It was only broadcast once.

To my knowledge it is not available on DVD and I’ve never seen it broadcast on the US. If you watch it I suggest sending the charity a five spot since that it what it was for.

After posting new pages for 43 out of 45 days Rich of Rich’s Comic Blog is taking a well deserved rest from his blog. His Ten doctors will return after the first of the year.

This is a great chance to start from the begining and catch the whole thing from the start. The title page is here and the first strip is here.

And don’t forget to check out his other quality strips.

And FYI in terms of continuity this adventure takes place between the episodes The Runaway Bride and Smith and Jones.

Question what does the number of bids on my home offered tech services and the amount of dollars the SEIU spent on its charitable efforts for low income housing?

Both equal nearly one:

Union-founded nonprofit spent zero on its charitable purpose in two years

The Captain states an uncomfortable fact.

One has to wonder how the SEIU could have remained in the dark about its charitable arm for so long, unless it was a willful blindness and the unit had some other purpose.

I don’t wonder at all I think they as implied by the intercepts blog followed the rules of Larry in the stooges short Income Tax Sappy.

Moe: How much did you claim for charity?

Larry: $5,000

Moe” Who did you give the money to?

Larry: Me.

Moe: You?

Larry: Sure, charity begins at home.

Can’t find the clip online so you will have to settle for the python camel spotting clip again.

Well I came home from a job interview to two happy sights: My first unemployment check finally showed up. (should be direct deposit from this point on).

And Comcast is back up including cable and net!

Incredibly the houses across the street, to the right of me and behind me are still all without power. We are the end of the power supply. Trash pickup however took place as normal.

Some neighbors have generators but most have relocated themselves for the duration. There will be no school here tomorrow (although Leominster is still iffy on that for tomorrow.)

Lunenburg has decided to cut its losses and keep schools closed until after the new year.

There is some nasty weather coming in the area tomorrow night so the already overworked power crews are going to be really on the spot to try to get people up before then.

But my situation means that blogging will become semi regular again tomorrow will have to get the minor brush removed.

I presume from this story that critics of the president in Iraq are now just as repressed as critics in the US.

There is likely a lot of laughing going on because of this but then again that’s too be expected.

The fact that Gateway pundit reports that the Cairo based news channel is demanding his release saying his “freedom of speech” has been violated is making my head spin.

Roger Simon as usual gets it right.

You know you would think that winning an election would be enough for some people , apparently not:

Investigators say arson caused a fire that badly damaged the former church of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin late Friday night and into early Saturday morning.

The blaze at the Wasilla Bible Church broke out as a group of women made crafts inside. It is not yet known if the church was targeted because of Palin’s affiliation. Palin’s spokesperson, Bill McAllister, issued a statement on her behalf after she visited the church on Saturday.

“(Palin) told an assistant pastor that she apologizes if the incident is in any way connected to the undeserved negative attention the church has received since she became a vice presidential candidate on Aug. 29. Whatever the motives of the arsonist, the governor has faith in the scriptural passage that what was intended for evil will in some way be used for good.”

The Captain being his level headed self is not willing to state if this had anything to do with Mrs. Palin candidacy. In my opinion he is being very generous.

Gateway Pundit notes that the folks at Democratic Underground are in his words: “having a field day with this”.

Michelle Malkin however links to a fund raising page to help rebuild.

By their fruits shall you know them

A few thoughts in the middle of the mess that is North Central Mass these days….

The troubles of a crook in Chicago don’t mean a lot when you can’t turn on your lights in Massachusetts.

I can’t imagine what people went through say 150 years ago when there was no communication when a storm like this hit. Then again they would have mostly cleared land and no electricity and generally had their own food supplies so it might not have been an issue in the days before the car and the telephone pole.

When you are a 16 year old kid and you are working in the only supermarket in town that has power, you are likely doing the greatest service for the general public that you will do during your teenage years.

The local Bishop gave dispensation for Catholics to skip mass this Sunday however we had it anyway and a fair amount of people turned up.

It’s kind of funny I’ve been disappointed that there have been no bites on my eBay offerings for remote tech support, but it turns out that I’m lucky because if there had been pretty bad to not be able to connect.

It is a real commentary on the state of television these days that I have not missed it in the least.

During my time when my family and another stayed at a friend’s house in Ft. Devins on Friday night we ended the evening with a game of Apples and Apples and started the morning with a game of Talisman. There is a real pleasure of 6-9 people sitting at a table together playing a game and enjoying each other company.

It very odd when you can drive 50 miles in a direction and there is absolutely no damage when your city looks like its been chewed up and spat out.

You know all those ads about firing your phone company with magic jack or the Comcast triple play sound great until you have no power to run your phone.

And I am very grateful that I decided to keep my second line as an old fashioned land line. It has been working the entire time.

And finally it is amazing what you can do without when you have no choice in the matter.

Well its Sunday night and I’m over my sister-in-laws for her youngest son’s birthday. She is one of the few people in town who has had heat, power and internet right along, its kinda odd because houses very near are all pitch black.

When I got back to my house yesterday afternoon the power was back the heat was back but Comcast is down and no internet. We lost power again briefly last night but it came back after 45 min. We basically put the house back in order and started to clear the trees out of the driveway. I have acquired a great respect for lumberjacks of old as we finally got the big logs out using one manual saw, one large axe and one hand ax. I’m going to have very sore muscles for the next few days.

For some reason one Market Basket store in our town is open, they have been flat out selling cooked chickens and stuff, the irony is they keep selling out of ice with the temp below freezing around here.

The power ends right with my house so the neighborhood is half dark and half light, from what I hear (no confirmation yet) Comcast will start restoring service when the wires are fixed in town.

School will be out for the next couple of days, my oldest feels gyped since he was going to have they day off for a conference anyways.

Had errands to run in town my Mother’s section looks like disaster area which indeed it is.

Snow if forecast for Wednesday so I hope stuff can be up before then.

As you might guess blogging will be VERY light or non-existent for the next few days as I’ll be staying close to home.

I strongly predict that our friends on the left will suddenly get a new respect for Victoria Toensing:

I am as repulsed by the governor’s crude statements — captured on tape by investigators — as anyone. And although I am a Republican, I am first an officer of the court. Thus, I take no joy in a prosecutor pursuing a Democratic politician by violating his ethical responsibility. I fear for the integrity of the criminal justice system when a prosecutor breaks the rules.

I further predict that we will see her on morning talk shows this week. It’s the Kathleen Parker effect.
