  1. A misty day with a droplet density of about 50000 per spherical inch.
  2. Clear blue sky. 22C already poolside!
  3. BBC so called stars are paid

    I've noticed Rachel Burden popping up with her opinion on the BBC gender pay gap. While I obviously agree with the sentiment of equal jobs should mean equal pay, salaries in the entertainment industry are more related to public profile than performance. Why do so few women at the BBC command a really high profile? It's not like they haven't had the chance - the BBC has been obsessive about equal opps for decades. Btw, after many years of listening to Nicky Campbell and the excellent Shelagh Fogarty on BBC Radio 5 breakfast, I switched off for good after enduring several painful months of listening to Burden stumble over seemingly every tenth word while reading the news bulletins and making brain curdlingly banal comments when discussing news items. She's on £130k a year.
  4. BBC so called stars are paid

    While a proportion of my licence fee is used to waste my time telling me what the weather is going to be like 800 miles away (surely we can just assume it'll be cold and raining in Scotland unless otherwise stated), and reporting on the (literally no-one outside Scotland gives a toss, sectarian violence associated) SPL football. Swings and roundabouts.
  5. Quotes by people or make up your own.

    Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. - JFK.
  6. Name The Film From The Film Quote

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die.
  7. Europe

    Runrig, Big Country, Love and Money. All a bit 5hite really. Give me The Ruts, The Stranglers, Buzzcocks any day.
  8. Really enjoying watching Mohammed Amir bowling in this series. Charges in, lovely flowing action, shapes the ball away beautifully - really top class bowler.
  9. Brian Close 1931-2015

    I remember reading a story about BC when he was fielding at silly mid off with Viv Richards batting during that 1976 series. Apparently he said to one of the other close fielders 'He (Richards) is going to go after one in a minute. When he does, I'll jump in the way of it and you catch the rebound!'
  10. Just got soaked on the way back from a campaign briefing. Haven't seen rain like it for a long time.
