I will be taking a little break from this over Christmas, but will catch up after New Year!
House is about a miserable, yet unbelievably genius doctor called Gregory House. You follow him and his team solving diagnostic cases that nobody else can. It is a dramatic, and clever series paired with a witty sense of humor.
– Chicago Fire
Chicago Fire is actually quite a new series for me, but I am now obsessed with it. This is about a Chicago fire station, and it follows their dramatic and busy lives saving the citizens of Chicago, whilst also dealing with their relationships within their jobs.
– The Mentalist
The Mentalist is another American series about a man working within the police force, called Patrick Jane, who used a mixture of psychology and observation to solve strange and dangerous cases.
NCIS is my all-time favorite television show, and has been for a long time. This is purely because of the strong characters, and believable storyline which creates an easily lovable TV series. This is about a team working in the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), who all use their unique talents, and humor, to solve more cases involving naval officers.
– Falling Skies
I have mentioned Falling Skies before, and if you have read that post then you can tell that I love it. This Steven Speilberg TV series is a post-apocolyptic drama following the 2nd Massachusetts as they fight against the aliens which invaded Earth.
– The Real Housewives of New York
This is a famous reality series in America, which follows a group of upper class women living and working in New York cities. You see them dramatize their lives, and you follow their complicated relationships and friendships within their group.
– Desperate Housewives
Desperate Housewives is an extremely famous comedy drama-mystery revolving around one street of families, Wisteria Lane, in which the events you would normally expect in a whole country in a year, happen in one episode of Desperate Housewives. The families all intertwine in a cleverly plotted storyline, which also incorporates humor which makes people all over America love it more.
– The Only Way is Essex
The Only Way is Essex is actually a British reality series focusing on the city of Essex in England. It is about all the lively characters of Essex, and their relationships and busy lives. Their is an overwhelming amount of colloquial language, and fake tan/makeup. Don’t even ask me why I enjoy this.
Well, there are just some of the completely pointless TV series’ which I enjoy a little bit too much. Hope you enjoyed it, and comment if you think there are any more I should add!

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, and recently the Cassini Spacecraft has found what ‘could be the longest river system seen beyond Earth’
The River valley on Titan is more than 400km from its ‘headwaters’ to a big sea, which is believed to be made up of mainly ethane and methane.
The river turns up in black on this image, as it is a radar image taken by a Spacecraft.
Amazing performance of one of their songs, ‘Emmylou’ from their album ‘Lions Roar’. One of my favorite songs.

I need to keep telling myself that. I don’t enjoy conflict, and that can be a fatal flaw.

If there was a fountain of youth, would you drink it?
I’m sure that the answer to this question does primarily rely on the age you are when you answer. Elderly people would probably say no; they have lived a long, fulfilling life and it wouldn’t be the same if you lived it forever. Its meant to be once in a lifetime moments, and that concept of living every day to the fullest would be lost when aging wasn’t an issue.
However, at my age, 16, I would say no. I know that childhood is supposedly the time of your life, and I have extremely fond memories. But, I am excited not only for the prospects of my future, but for growing older, hopefully with that one special person. I want to experience all the ‘once in a lifetime’ moments that I mentioned before, and if I drank from this fountain of infinite youth, I would lose that whole concept of excitement.
People working at the University of Chicago are trying to figure out who sent a mysterious package containing a notebook used by Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The package was addressed to a ‘Henry Walton Jones Jr’ and was recieved by the admissions department at the University. However, nobody under that name works at the University of Chicago. Authorities did find the connection however, as it is the name of the fictional archaeologist and adventurers given name.
Found in the package was a replicate of the journal used by his mentor, University Professor Abner Ravenwood, but without an explanation.
The University said “the book itself is a bit dusty, and the cover is teal fabric with a red velvet spine. It has weathered inserts and many postcards/pictures of (the character) Marion Ravenwood included”
The mystery carries on, as the University still hasn’t figured out who sent this strange package, and how they got hold of this elaborate item.
