Might it be that the family name was actually originally 'Stoker' or 'Stokes' As adopted by someone from Stoke? Antique Wedgewood pottery can be pretty damned valuable. Go google what you have. Check the label under the saucers.


This is stuff, samples mostly, Josiah brought home for the kids. It's pretty valuable I had it appraised 25 years ago and insured it. It's only gone up.

As to Stocker, no, it was always Stocker, according to Mom. She offered this family heirloom, which hangs on her wall.

Never doubt a small group of concerned citizens can change the world; it's the only thing ever has

I haven't followed this thread but this link is interesting:

WATCH OUT Black Mirror: Bandersnatch ‘could be sinister Netflix ploy to steal THOUGHTS’

The hit Netflix feature could be even creepier than we thought...

Wow! Why aren't more people talking about this show. I watched/played Bandersnatch and was amazed. So I watched Season 4, episode 1. I thought that was great too. I heard the first episode was awful so I watched and thought it was really good and very thought provoking. I'm kind of hooked.

The first episode of season 1, not 4, is the one everybody is warning you about, including me. I suggest watching every episode except that one before you even consider watching episode 1-1.

Yeah I did watch episode 1-1. It was disturbing for sure but a real commentary on what we will watch now a days. I thought the monologue towards the end of season 1-2, was some of the most intense acting I've ever seen. Has this show won any awards?

Season 5 (all 3 episodes of it) is underwhelming and predictable

It has won 23 awards out of 83 nominations, including 7 Emmy Wins out of 11 nominations.

I am one of those people who found the first two episodes too disturbing to watch any more, but not everyone reacts the same way. I think many people think it is disturbing because it is insightful.
