Waterloo I think. That's what the man said anyway. But it's very early and dark, so frankly who knows? And I'm yet to check the details as no coffee has yet been imbibed. I know it's a drug and that breeds dependency but it is used in moderation. A cardiologist once told me that watching coffee was good but that a few squares of dark chocolate and a drink of diet cola (silly phrase) would have the same effect on my heart. So watch all of it basically (nb she didn't say stop, she just said 'watch' which I do). After Paul Hollywoods visit, along with buns and bread, there are a few more things we will need to 'watch'.
I was a late convert to coffee anyway, only starting when I was deputising for Adrian John on the early show for Radio 1, so this is 86/87. Until then I didn't like any hot drinks but the studios had a coffee machine which made exceptionally strong brews and, needing something to whet the whistle, took what I needed. Within a few weeks I was hooked. I'm thinking of sending Adrain John any future medical bills that accrue as a result of his carelessly wanting time off.
More food today! The sourdough bread and Chelsea buns were enough to keep us going for a while but Nigel fills any gap that might have appeared with Hake, cider and clotted cream. My cardiologist might have something to say about that too.
Oldies please for the start of the RYDER CUP where the European golfers take on the Americans and we are suddenly good Europeans for a few days at least. It's all happening in Chicago which might take you down a few other alleys...
Have a well-controlled and organised Thursday. See you after 5.

    Morning all

    Thanks for the heads-up regaring my mensh - I didn't hear the show at all last night: I always seem to get a mensh when I'm not listening!! I will try to iPlayer at some point although more for Shona's TWT than the mensh :)

    I say them last weekend; very funny. If it is the same episode there is Carly Simon's Nobody Does it Better too.

    Yes, it let me post the above but really doesn't like this one ...

    Shona sounded exactly as she does in real life.

    Like Zoe I haven't notice Lord A having especially small feet, his hands appear to be normal sized.

    Deebee - I don't really like Muse so was not entirely paying attention.

    I am feeling more and more sympathy for Mandy's post from earlier in the week. I've spent all day trying to explain that if 2+2 = 5 something has gone wrong and no I can't just fudge it to make it work.

    Evening All;

    By 'eck! I seem to have received an erroneous mensh for Baggy Trousers, I actually suggested I Get Around by The Beach Boys, and didn't get a mensh for that, so I suppose it all balances out in the end. Simon must have had his list a*** about face! But thanks anyway. :D

    Thanks for the mensh congrats & well done also to Autumn Gale, John & Billie (on the bog!) LOL. And well done Shona for the talking text 3 worder 'Teaparty Huge Success' :-)

    #67 Florence - Michael Ball looks very fresh faced there! I love his rendition of 'Empty Chairs At Empty Tables' wish I could have seen him perform it on stage.

    #73 John - LOL! I must say I never even noticed Simon's small feet when I met him, he is very svelte though, so perhaps nature decided he didn't need so much anchoring! ;D

    Goodnight one and all x
