We have a randomly-selected winner in the Valentines giveaway! Congratulations to Claire P, whose theme tune of choice was from Jam & Jerusalem. There were so many theme tunes that I had forgotten about (Laverne & Shirley, Rentaghost) and many that I didn’t know at all (Hinnigan’s Island; Mr Rogers). Tom and I really enjoyed reading through your choices — so many gems in there (Triangle! and Charlotte’s remarks about Triangle!), but no one suggested the theme from Taxi, which, on reflection, is probably my favourite of all. (As a child, I loved Taxi and Cagney and Lacey, and found New York City in general Very Intriguing).

My other exciting news is that I am off to Shetland for a few days! See you soon!

  1. Oh, it’s too bad you didn’t get to watch Mr. Roger’s as a child, though I can see why since it’s an American show. We only saw it on PBS (the US version of CBC/BBC) because it was a “free” channel, meaning even if you didn’t have cable, you got PBS along with CBC and some odd local stations. He was such a sweet man – highly religious, yet highly tolerant and loving of all people even if they were the kind of folks his faith told him he ought not to tolerate. His mother hand knit every sweater and cardigan he wore on the show. :)


  2. Good heavens! How delightful! I’ve never won anything in my life before and I’m so glad that when I do, it’s a knitting/yarn thing.
    Thank you, in advance, for the yarn and all the congratulations, and if you haven’t heard Kate Rusby’s voice, it’s a pleasure waiting for you over on you tube.
