By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

Did you have a dream last night?

    Is there any reason that you want to remember your dreams?
    Anyway, in my case, I write my dream every morning as soon as I wake up.
    If I don't remember the dream, I write 'I forgot the dream' in my dream diary.
    The intension to write my dream helps me remember my dreams.
    If you want to remember your dreams, I think this would be a good way.

    I think this is a good idea @nontan. I would like to remember my dreams better as they always seem to be very interesting or at least this is what my last impression of them feels like.

    Several years ago, I had a dream in which I was studying English.
    After I woke up I thought I would start it actually.
    Before that, I had given up studying English many times.
    Somehow the dream made me feel I could keep studying it this time.
    Since then, I have been studying English little by little.
    Dreams are sometimes very effective.
    You also probably get something good from your dreams. @mheredge

    Grrr I had a good dream but as soon as I woke up it disappeared. Stupidly I didn't have a pen and paper close to hand to jot down the details as soon as I woke up.

  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 44,838 ✭✭✭✭
    My dreams are always in colour @Dharmateja. I had another good one this morning, that slipped away as I woke up.

    I had about three dreams but can only vaguely recall a few images from each, which slip away as soon as I try to remember too hard!

    I had nightmare last night. But that nigtmare I think that was related with films which I watched before I fell to asleep. I watched some horor and that was be appslotly mistake because I watched that kind of film before sleep.

    I know I had a vivid dream and I could remember it for a few seconds after I woke up. But now I can't for the life me tell you what it was about.

    When I was a kid I used to often have bad dreams after watching anything scary on TV @walter. I don't watch much TV any more, so I don't know if horror films would affect me that way any more.

    I realized that watching scary films before asleep it`s not very good idea. I also almost never watch tv. Every film which I watch is via my computer. @mheredge
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 44,838 ✭✭✭✭
    I am only just discovering how I can easily watch TV for free on my laptop @walter. I always thought you had to subscribe. I rarely watch TV so an subscription service would be a waste of money.
  • walterwalter Posts: 693 ✭✭✭
    In my country, watchig tv via computer or laptop for some tv programs didn`t need subscsription via internet. Also there are many sites where you can to see films or serias free or to downloads these films or serias also free. @mheredge

    It wasn't so easy watching British TV outside the country @walter (the TV licence fee in the UK is very expensive, so for people watching on the internet, they lose a lot of money.) Usually you need VPN to disguise where you are located, but somehow there are a few websites that seem to work even without this.

    @mheredge I like watching British TV. Also I like watching and listening to people who're watching British TV. That's why 'Gogglebox' is one of my favourite shows. Once I was even dreaming about watching 'Gogglebox' and it turned out that I was shown on the local TV while watching it.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 44,838 ✭✭✭✭
    Gogglebox? I don't know this one @Vok. If I can stay awake long enough, I might try and catch Cunk on Britain tonight.

    And here is a whole programme about Shakespeare:

    And this....

    @mheredge I heared that in abroad, outside my country is really expensive to watching some serias or films via internet. Yet more difficult if you want to downloads some film or seria. For that reason my friends when he want to go abroad for example on the holiday, first he downloads via internet some films and put that films in usb and he can to watching that downloads films via usb in abroad.

    Have you tried accessing British TV from https://easyview.eu/bbc-one/ @walter? This is free and seems to work without any need for vpn from France at least.

    I just use an itorrent app on my tablet that downloads movies, again at no charge or need to register with any particular website. I am not so sure this works so well on my laptop and in any case, I avoid downloading this sort of thing onto my laptop as I don't want to risk downloading a virus or any other sort of nasty addon.
  • walterwalter Posts: 693 ✭✭✭
    @mheredge No, I wasn`t try to access Brtish TV. For downloads movies or serias I usually using sites such as Pirates bay or 1337x. On this sites download serias and films are free.
