Sunny in the executive suite here but without a school run to complete, not stepped outside yet. Sensible shoes, winter jumper required. I am now planning to run my life like John Grisham runs his. Everything ordered in neat piles. Up at the same time, work for the same time, no distractions, zero procrastination, work half the year, sell millions of books. Why don't we all try it? Can't see a flaw.
Today we rustle up some Steeleye Span and Sir Terry Pratchett together! They have collaborated on an album based on Terry's Wintersmith book of 2006. Terry has always been a huge Steeleye fan and on hearing the feeling was mutual, the project was conceived. He chose a Steeleye song for his Desert Island Discs (Thomas the Rhymer) and apparently suggested this project years ago. Anyway they have finally got round to it and you can hear some of the adventure after 6 tonight. Meantime I'm listening to Parcel Of Rogues and assorted Steeleye fun.
And songs for the return of Monty Python! Yes it is true! Here's the BBC online report-
All of the surviving members of comedy group Monty Python are to reform for a stage show, one of the Pythons, Terry Jones, has confirmed.
"We're getting together and putting on a show - it's real," Jones told the BBC.
"I'm quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!"
The reunion is expected to be announced officially at a press conference being held in London on Thursday.
John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Jones and Michael Palin are all due to appear at the event.
Sounds good to me. Tunes please!
Have a smart and focused Tuesday, see you after 5
