Memories of Childhood

I can't imagine any of us grew up without watching at least one of Gerry Anderson's puppet shows - Captain Scarlet, Joe 90, to name but two.

But one of his shows is never mentioned, barely remembered, but a great favourite of mine. Meet Twizzle, the boy with the magic ratchety arms and legs:

He could miraculously stretch his legs and arms to reach things that started out beyond his little boy's reach, and I loved him. Farewell Gerry Anderson, you did us all proud.

Naughty, Naughty

I was just watching an episode of L&O LA, and at the start when they usually announce "adult themes" and such like, they said, "The following programme contains mild language".

What, like "goodness gracious"?

The only word in the whole programme that could qualify was "spic". Unpleasant and racist. And bleepable, like many other words they bleep and make nonsense of the dialogue.

But "mild language"? Every other word in the episode was mild. Unlike this comment:

What the fuck?

Trophy Wine - Day 10

Just look at that jaw. So strong and masculine.

To all the dear friends to whom I tried so hard to send a Smilebox card, only to find the whole thing fell at the last fence,

Happy V-Christmas and many more of them

Forgotten Claim to Fame

Last week, a veteran British newscaster - one of BBC TV's first - died. And no matter where I looked in the obituaries, I couldn't find his (apparently uncredited) appearance in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Am I the only person who remembers?

Trophy Wine - Day 6

Bobby enjoys the "nose". And we so often enjoy his.
