The past two weeks have been about change. As you can see, some changes have taken place here in my little piece of blogger land. Sunshine & Rain has taken it's final name change. My lack of blogging recently has been to take a step back & really look at what my blog is really all about. It also was for me to find out if the name I had chosen was still one I would like in a few weeks. I know some people hate change & I wanted to make this change as smooth & final as possible. So let me introduce you to The Mister & Me. A blog still very much as random as the day it started.
If you follow me on Bloglovin' or GFC, nothing will change. I will still be in your feed, just under my new name. If you follow me through RSS or email, you might need to re-follow via feedburner found here. My url will remain the same until I find the need to buy my own domain. Which I honestly don't see happening.
Upon returning from my quite short break from blogging, I returned to what seems to be slight chaos. Firstly, Passionfruit Ads which I use for my sponsor bar is deciding to start charging as of September 1st. This irked me a bit as I really was just starting to get into the groove of things there. I know many of you were using Passionfruit for your ads, are you going to pay for their services or have you found a new free site? If you have please let me know in the comments, as I have no idea where to even start looking.
Secondly, my Google Analytic page is no longer tracking & I have no idea what happened. I have gone through the Google troubleshooting steps & have even re-installed the tracking code & nothing worked. Have any of you had issues with your analytic page? If so, help me! I'm normally pretty good at fixing things on my own, but this one I am pretty dumbfounded.

So another change is taking place... or has taken place. This one effects more than myself. The BBC has chosen a new Doctor for Doctor Who! The twelfth doctor is being played by a man whom I am not familiar with named Peter Capaldi. I honestly would not have chosen him. My vote was for Richard Hammond from Top Gear. I adore him.
But none the less, it seems many were surprised by the casting of such an older gentleman since the Doctor's regeneration cycles have been making him younger & younger. Perhaps this is a way for the BBC to continue on with Doctor Who without the Doctor becoming a child? Even then I do believe there were many more candidates that could have been better chosen & I like many others hope it was a joke to throw everyone off.
I never really had a strong bond to Matt Smith as Doctor Who. Don't get me wrong, I like him & I find him hilarious but David Tennant will always be my Doctor. I waited months before watching the new series with Matt Smith, simply because I was throwing a tantrum that Tennant was gone. I am quite happy that I have a few seasons of Doctor Who to catch up on & that the Matt Smith era is not over for our household thanks to Netflix. It kind of puts a positive spin on not having cable, sort of.
