Don't know any of that, but I looked up Diana Rigg and when seeing her picture I thought "hey, she's a Bond girl!" and then I noticed she's also Olenna Tyrell from GoT
I don't know anything from Patrick Macnee, but seeing what he's played in I'm pretty sure my grandma really loves his stuff
I can't remember which Bond movie Diana Rigg was in (I even managed to find it boring with her in it - I just don't get on with Bond) but to me she will always be Mrs. Peel. Macnee, similarly, will always be John Steed.
During their co-starring period, The Avengers was one of the best shows ever made. And to make it accessible to the youth of today, they were kind enough to shoot it in colour!
Whatever you do, NEVER, EVER, EVER watch the ghastly U.S. movie version with Uma Thurman, it will put you off for life.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
I gifted my daughter a Moving/Rolling/Jumping alarm clock as I always argued with her that she needs to be more independent in the morning. The ritual of waking her up in the morning is always " 10 mins more ,5 mins, 1 mins and 30 sec more". She uses me as her clock with verbal snooze button.
I think its my mistake that I asked her to use it during the October school break.
Today morning, I heard the alarm and then a loud thud and so went to check what happened. What I saw was a gruesome crime scene with dead remains of the Clock along with a paperback book on top of it. The clock I assume had no chance to run or roll with her clothes lying around in the floor and my kid not being a morning person.
So my biggest dilemma is should I buy a new clock or a helmet for myself.
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
Why in the first place you are waking her?! I stop doing that after their 10th birthday...
(If they want an alarm clock they can buy one)... I have nothing to do them not being at school in time... They know that if the teacher asks me why they didn't arrived today I will tell only truth... And the shame does the rest...

As internet stereotypes tell me, there are two ways to parenting, white parenting way where you politely request her to not to do it and non-white way where you use spanking. You can decide what type are you. This is for breaking the clock.
For waking up, glass of ice cold water would work fine.
I also disagree with the law, I don't really understand why it was ever so difficult for the law to tell the difference between a child that is being abused and one that has just had a smacked bottom. I mean I get the parents were obviously trying to use the defence of "it was just a harmless smack to teach them a lesson", but again it should be easy enough to identify if that claim is true or not.
However, smacks were just there to offer a deterrent for bad behaviour. As a kid you knew not to do something because there would be consequences - a sore arse (of back of leg if you were the type to try and wiggle out the way ). So if consequence is the lesson that was being taught, surely there should be plenty of other ways to teach consequence without physical action? Yet still, it seems we are in a time where children get away with anything without knowing consequence. I guess that's just down to lazy parents who want an easy life where the kid just gets what they want to keep them quiet.
I am not really sure why I wrote all that now... just thinking out loud I guess.
