Go Jetters. A Few Questions.

As I’m sure its obvious to those that read this blog, but we are massive fans of CBeebies. Which show is our favourite does vary from week to week, but Go Jetters seems to come up quite often.

When the Little One is up for Go Jetters, its often binge watched on BBC iPlayer, and many many episodes are watched. Back to back… (I have the “Funky Facts” tune in my head just writing this)

After the second or third Go Jetters Binge-watch session,  Mrs Sofa, and I started asking ourselves a few questions about both the team, and world around the Go Jetters…

Is Grand Master Glitch quite vulnerable, and easily influenced by the GrimBots?

Seriously…are the GrimBots actually the evil master minds of the piece? A lot of the time, the trouble made by Glitch is because he has misunderstood the big picture, and as a result he has misunderstood the consequences of his actions. Shouldn’t the GrimBots be stopping him by now?

Does Ubercorn ever get his hands dirty?

He always seems to be sending the Go Jetters to go and do the hard work. I’ve never actually seen Ubercorn put himself in danger…

Talking about Ubercorn, how did the Go Jetters end on on a ship with a unicorn anyway?

I’m just curious… I guess I’m a sucker for flashback / origin stories.

As a team, they don’t seem very efficient,why don’t they make the “click ons” automated. Problem solved.

EVERY TIME. The Go Jetters find a problem.

Go Jetters, can’t solve a problem.

Go Jetters get “click ons”

PROBLEM SOLVED!

On the subject of Go Jetters, “Outside the world is turning, guided by Ubercorn.”, does that suggest that Ubercorn is in fact God? If so does that make the Go Jetters angels?

I’m possibly taking a few lyrics out of context, but…

Given the premise of the series – The Team find a problem on the planet – problem gets solved. Could Ubercorn (God) be protecting us from Glitch (The Devil), by using his angels.

This would suggest though that the Go Jetters are probably dead, and living on in some sort of angelic afterlife.

Possibly after dying in some sort of natural disaster?

What questions do you have after watching Go Jetters?

Sorry about the darkness at the end there…

What To Do in Exeter?

Looking for ideas to help you decide what to do in Exeter, when you are out and about?

The other day we had a conversation, where we said we wanted to go out. But we weren’t sure where we wanted to go.

I’m sure this isn’t an Exeter thing, and I’m sure we’re not the only ones who struggle to decide what -family friendly activities – to go out and do? (But we can be indecisive)

To help anyone (including ourselves) decide what activities to do in Exeter, I’ve put this wheel together to help you decide.

I Like Facebook.

I have a confession to make. I like Facebook.
Well, I think I like the marketed idea behind Facebook. You know the one: The nice utopian idea of bringing people together in an online community.
The thing is, in order for people to come together, to share photos, update statuses, play games, and what ever else. Data is collected.
And that data, that’s worth something, which seems to be something that we took for granted.
Maybe we all thought our data was so general that it would have no real world impact?

Perhaps we didn’t care enough to read the fine print?
Perhaps it’s not just the data harvesting for the Donald Trump campaign?
It could also be that it was done through the use of an innocent looking quiz?
Maybe it’s that Facebook tried to sue to stop the story from getting out?
But now could be a good time to re-evaluate, and learn about our relationship with social networks? It’s not just the data we willingly give, but with the revelation that Facebook has been keeping track of calls and text messages from our phones, it’s also clear we need to seriously think about the phone apps we install.

Why I’m I going on about Facebook here? Two things; Parenting blogs seem to discuss social networks and smart phones on a regular basis. These conversations normally focus on the amount of time spent on electronic devices / social media, and if that time is healthy and safe? Should we also be discussing the information we willingly give up to large companies such as Facebook?

Secondly, parenting bloggers in general also seem to include a lot of time on Facebook, and Instagram. Perhaps this is a reminder for us all to check what we put on social networks about our families and ourselves?

I like Facebook.

But right now. I don’t trust Facebook.

#MySundayPhoto – Remains of Winter

“It never snows in Exeter.”
Words I’m sure I said, just a few weeks ago.

This was taken just as our second snow storm in about two weeks was thawing away.

I guess, the question is. Is it going to snow again over Easter? Or will we actually get a chance to sort out the garden?
