Truth or dare!

Posted by Lorac Tuesday, 30 November 2010

Ok, the truth is out! I am a follower of  the British soap "Coronation Street". Have been for years. I actually started watching when I was training as a paramedic on the ambulance. One of my tudor crew members was a big fan of Corrie and "forcefully" got me hooked on it.  I enjoy the down to earth characters, whereas the North American Soaps are all glam and everyone is gorgeous, on "Corrie" everyone is natural. There are though, a few "good lookers" on this show too, but in a natural way. Below is a video of a new release by one of the cast Katherine Kelly, who plays Becky MacDonald on the show. It is a winner! She really has a lovely voice! I hope you enjoy it.

  2. I confess...I watch 1 American Soap and agree that there is way to much glam. Who would wear those ridiculous no back dresses around the house or to work. So unreal. I just went back and checked all of your posts. Some great shots in there. I love the yellow leaves and the reflection photo is amazing.

  4. I don't watch any, but that's just a preference!
    I love the photos.
    Glad you liked my tribute.

  5. another huge fan of Coronation Street here. Mind you I think I am going to be totally fed up of the Gail/Joe storyline before it's all over with!! Actually watching Corrie, as I am writing this. I didn't realize "Becky" was a singer.

  7. Hey Gill! I didn't know she was either but she is good!I am also watching Corrie and I think the Gail/Joe thing just died out! LOL

  9. You are a fan! Say it loud and proud!
    I forcefully try to get people hooked on Corrie as well so your crew member ranks high in my books!
