Good morning to all bloggers, those who are new and those who have been around for awhile. The blogvets, a years service required. But everyone welcome of course.
Enjoyed yesterday, Tony Parsons always a good listen. In a rather lovely gesture, he bought me a book. He had seen that I had tweeted about having reached 90,000 words for Itch 2 and bought me a collection of Ernest Hemingway's musings On Writing. This is a good thing; guests who bring appropriate gifts for their hosts need to be encouraged. Retiring early, I managed a few pages of Hemingway before disappearing to the land of nod. This was nothing to do with the quality of what I was reading, more the onset of a what I thought was the imminent arrival of a cold. This appears to have disappeared for now and I shall plough on, manfully, not mentioning it to anyone. Please keep this to yourselves.
Nigel today of course and today he offers a courgette, pea and tarragon tart for your delight.
And oldies today for tall people. The annual European Convention for Tall People is meeting in Finland. And they need their tunes.
Have a brisk and efficient Thursday, see you after 5

    Morning Shona and Mo,

    Where did you both sneak in from?

    Yes, we did indeed have a joint mensh debut, didn't we Mo - and it was the first song I heard after Big Girl was born.

    Couldn't tell you the last time I had a mensh. I suggested "She's Got Legs" on the Blue Peter Oldies day but no one got the mensh because it was the day Robin Gibb died and Simon dashed over to that fabulous interview with Paul Gambiccini.

    Good morning,

    #110 Well thank you dear Katy. Won't I be the talk of the school run with that on my head.

    #111 Sal, Not sure where the giddy aunt saying came from but I certainly have several.

    #112 Hi Gazza, How's your lovely niece getting on?

    My mum came out with a saying the other day that made me laugh. When describing a pub in Deal she said it was "A real snuff takers arms pub". I have never seen people taking snuff in a pub but knew exactly what she meant.

    Must dash... Need to find a suitable outfit to coordinate with my fabulous new hat.

    Good morning all! It's Friday :-)

    Haven't checked back to when my first post was (I was a lurker from the beginning, no idea why I didn't come out sooner) but I remember my first mensh (Simply Red - Stars) was shared with the lovely Julia40 (who would have been Juliasomethingelse at the time). I'm guessing it was December 2010 for an advent kind of theme.

    Uncle Gazza, can I give you a tip? You need to be suggesting songs to be in with a chance of a mensh ;-). We don't see you on here very often these days.

    Expect to be a bit busier today and then on my travels again this afternoon. Will be around as much as I can be.

    Have a great day!

    Good Morning Troops

    Not had a chance to read back yet and didn't get to hear the show last night due to a retiral do. Seemingly if all else fails, a career in stand up comedy awaits which is quite apt really as this morning, we will learn of our fate jobwise.

    Does anyone have Alan Carr's phone number?
