Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Nevertheless, multiple bed occupation is common. But it still surprises me when the bedmates are Jaspa and Beano.
When Beano was a tiny kitten, with ears bigger than his head, he once went to sleep on Jaspa's back without her noticing. I got a picture (sadly I have never scanned it in) before she woke up and had a hissy fit.
So you can imagine my surprise today when I saw this:

In 1963, a mere 10 years old, I went along there with my older sister and her friend to see The Beatles live on stage. I thought I remembered that it was December 10th, so it seemed appropriate that I should pass it and remember the event today.
A quick check online, however, shows that I was mistaken, and the date of the concert was December 8th.
The thousands of screaming fans would never have been able to imagine that just 17 years later, on that very day, but in a very different kind of place, John Lennon would be murdered.
If only he'd stayed in the UK.
I'd forgotten how great it is to be able to scroll without the kind of problem you get with a laptop mouse. This one also has a few extra bells and whistles - for example, you can just click a button to go backwards or forwards, and you can also programme those buttons to do other things if you prefer.
So thanks, folks, for encouraging me to take this step. I'm already feeling more chilled because I don't have to keep going back to do things again.
It's all right, Diane, she's old Heart-in-a-Box now, you can relax!
Oh, look, the index finger's longer than the ring finger!
