It dawns on me that with the introduction of Donna Noble, Rose Tyler ends up seeming quite classy.

I am wondering about my Android phone battery use.
I use Facebook Messenger with the family, and it seems to be using quite a lot of battery for what it does.

"According to Victor, they had been 'exact contemporaries', a term he used for anyone of vaguely his own age who had not noticed him at school. 'I knew him at Eton' too often meant that he had been ruthlessly mocked by someone. He said of only two other scholars that they were friends of his at school, and he no longer saw either of them. One was the head
of a Cambridge college and the other a civil servant who was widely thought to be a spy because his job sounded too dull to exist."

Apparently, a huge part of what Heinlein wrote is available in YouTube as audiobooks.
Had not expected this much.
