11 O'Clock, Tick Tock

Now this might be briefer than normal. Last night we smelt gas and the National Grid man came and shut our boiler down. So as the frost crept over the windows, we hugged the remaining heat in the radiators and put on wooly hats. Can't argue with the man from the National Grid. All we need is boiler man/woman to actually have all the parts with him/her necessary for the repair (unlikely on past experience) and all will be well. I'm not holding my breath. Which must be why I can see clouds of steam as I type in our office...

So Jim Kerr and Simple Minds today - a new Greatest Hits compilation is out called Celebrate. One of the new tracks 'Broken Glass Park' was Ken's Record of the Week last week and he had the world exclusive two weeks ago. In the late 80s they were step by step level with U2 as the biggest band around and Glittering Prize, Don't You Forget About Me and Promised You A Miracle were three of the biggest songs around. Jim is always an affable guest - good to have him back.

And oldies please on the subject of LATENESS/TARDINESS. Justin Bieber kept everyone waiting for 2 HOURS at the O2 yesterday with poor parents circling the car park (or similar) to pick up their kids, when the wretched star had barely started. No excuse has been forthcoming which is of course unforgivable; I wonder if the worshipping crowd outside his hotel might be a little diminished this morning. Anyway LATENESS is the thing for tune chasers today.

Have a perky and chipper Tuesday, see you after 5.

    Apparently , the choons we are chasing today are SLIP OF THE TONGUE oldies, after the Duchess of Cambridge's slip yesterday.

    I started out in the Ashton area of Preston, Erica. Not far fropm Lane Ens. Hampton St if I remember rightly. I take it you were in the Tulketh Brow or Tulketh Road area?

    I was at the the Polytechnic. By the sounds of it, so you were. Or am I guessing wrongly?

    I did Physics And Astronomy before moving onto Statistics.

    Morning all,

    Dull and dreary here after yesterday's brightness.

    Welcome back Autumn Gale - how was your trip? Do tell, when your head is in a better place!

    Andy, keep meaning to say, hope you're feeling better now after your recent health "scare".

    See you over the page.

    Welcome back, Autumn_Gale - I hope your trip was good and that you enjoyed it - was it China you visited, or am I dreaming that?

    Morning all

    Foggy and dreary here in the West Riding!

    #115 Erica as other have said, you need to keep posting. I think the number of messages of support and donations Ivan has received, should tell you what people on here think of both your posting and his achievement.

    The blog does tend to go through cycles, sometimes some people do stop blogging or have a rest. It can also depend on the theme and whether we wander off at a tangent. So don't think of disappearing!

    Cheers

    A

    Morning all

    I hope everything is well on the blog.

    A bit jet-lagged and my head is definitely elsewhere. I'm not surethat it's good to be back - but I'm sure I'll get back in the swing.

    It is great to be back on the blog though ;)

    Good morning all - not as bright as yesterday but it's not cold.

    After yesterdays burst of energy, tidying the patio pots, I'm feeling tired today - amazing how a little extra exercise finishes me off for a a day or two - could be an 'Itch' day, so not so bad!

    Erica, you stay and tell us all about your boy and the rest of the family - I love it!

    #114 - Jilly, yes - said once and speculation persists as does shrouded identity of RS.

    #115 - Happy B'day to your lovely girl. If we read our DT online community in a positive voice, it reads as it was ment to be taken. I have found it best to give benefit of doubt when in question, rather than negative assumption.

    Good Morning Everyone

    #115 Erica, you do make me giggle and as Hoffs says, please don't disappear. Enough folks have disappeared already.

    I'll most likely miss the tune chasing today as a field awaits but was wondering if Simon will go with the Panda theme again as it seems to be all over the news again.
