Here I am again, this time enthusing about Definitively Dusty which is being broadcast on Radio 2. It’s the first of three one hour programmes on the incomparable Ms Springfield, the best ever English singer of modern music. Extremely interesting, hitherto unheard of interviews and of course blissful sounds from the lady with the stunning, haunting voice, insane eyes and incredible bee hive hair do. Magic.
Syd.

Excellent, exciting US Moto GP today with Alex Rins on a Suzuki the surprise winner in front of Valentino Rossi, after Marc Marquez crashed out whilst leading by a country mile. Hopefully this means the 2019 Moto GP championship is wide open. C'mon the Dukes.

So much more exciting than today's yawn inducing, processional, predictable Chinese F1 GP, though that's not difficult. How much longer will people be paying very serious money to watch live such dreary stuff?

Oh thanks for spoiling my viewing of the highlights if it's on this week :evil:

Sorry about that, but what's a person to do, express their delight about something which pleased them TODAY, or wait until the highlights of the event have been shown days later when the post would be inaccurate? When I searched in our Radio Times to find out which terrestial channel would be showing this year's highlights I couldn't find it listed. They used to be shown on Channel 5, but no longer are. Which channel will be showing the highlights you refer to?

Just this sec. put the phone down after a call from a chap with a far eastern accent.
He told me there was a problem with Windows & seemed confused when I told him we'd just had new windows fitted.
He went on to tell me about an 'extention' I needed & when I told him we'd also just built a new extention with new windows he swore & hung up.
Shows how much I know about windows. :D

So glad you pissed one of them off Vic. I had to calm my mother down last night who had got into a panic by a cold call even though she knows about these kind of scams, it still upset her.

Five pairs of Red Kites circling overhead as I set out to walk the dogs. :D

Is that in France or the UK Biggles?

I enjoy watching red kites, lovely to see swooping around; we generally have 10-12 circling around us where we are in Berkshire. We’re not so far from where red kites were re-introduced 30 years ago on the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire borders and now they have spread much further.

After a few short practices over the last couple of days, our first Nightingale of the year singing beautifully. We now await the arrival of the competition.
