    We have a chain of small stores in the U.S. called Dollar General that are noted for their random/remote (sometimes oddly) targeted locations. It has inspired memes which could easily have potential for Barry's plot (Pound World?)

    One-off characters who became regulars

    I'm going to go on a stretch here. They just aired Cheering Up Gordon over the weekend on public television here in the States. It's a fuzzy picture, but I'd almost swear that was Jean Alexander admonishing Foggy for stepping out on the balcony in his pajamas at the beginning of the episode.

    For train buffs

    Can't go wrong putting most any kind of train around a tree. Especially O or G scale. Mine will be HO if any at all.

    Gilligan’s Island - American intellectual comedy

    This series came with its own set of "make you wonder"s. Among them: So many sets of clothes (usually the passengers) packed for a three-hour excursion? Laundry (especially for Gilligan and Skipper)? The volume of structures and apparatuses built from bamboo would have required several machetes...

    Where did Ivy cook?

    A guest appearance or two by Tom Baker would definately fit in with contributing to misadventures.

    Last of the Summer Wine Magazine

    I think this would be a great idea to set up a trail loop (or a collection of drivable trailheads/loops for varying abilities). That would let visitors see and hear the sights as if they were on one of the trio's walks. It wouldn't even have to match exact filming locations but instead take...

    Absent friends

    Was looking at the stat pages where Dick tops Most Messages. Wondering the same. Hope he is okay or someone is in his neighborhood can check on him.

    Last of the Summer Wine Magazine

    Well worth it I think (even though I had to wait about a month to get it when ordered on US Amazon). Published by the proprietor of Nora Batty's Holiday Cottage!

    Artifact of interest

    Local tourism council brochure. Very interesting. https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/visitors/pdf/explore-holmfirth-summer-wine.pdf That being said. I was wondering if Holmfirth is ever mentioned by name in any episodes? I've watched many mentions of Yorkshire as the local area and Huddersfield...
