Have you factored in Mr Lineker's pay packet?

I thought he worked for crisps  :D

IMO he ought to work for peanuts.   ::)  Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

Last evening I watched the 3rd episode of "US".     It makes me feel so anxious and unsettled that I have to watch a pre-recorded Bargain Hunt.   ::) ::)  Mrs B

Being of a certain age, if we'd even learned that Robert Dougal, or Kenneth Kendall had a whiff of scandal around them, my lovely parents, and - I suppose us little kids - would have been horrified!

We relied on the BBC back then, but not now.

Great laugh from a YouTube of 'Smack the pony'!

It really is much more fun seeing good programmes on outlets like this, you can choose exactly what you want to see, and if I want to watch Pink Floyd, and Mrs Growster doesn't, there are always earphones!

Ha ha ha!

A while back I was also slated for not liking their earlier stuff, but as mentioned then, there wasn't the cash around for such luxuries, so I never bothered!

Caught up much later though...

;0~

Last night I watched a programme about Agatha Christie, selling her manuscript.   It was so boring and the adverts ran for more than the programme itself.  It was like watching paint dry   ::)  Mrs Bouquet

Have you seen "David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet"? A very interesting documentary.
I know we are in a global economy because my favorite gardening hat, purchased in the United States, was made in China by a Swiss company and has a label in Spanish.  (They all deserve their piece of the pie, wouldn't you agree? We are all in this world together.)

They said a new series of Montalbano was starting, so I set the Sky box to record it :)

Enjoyed a Sci-fi film on Amazon yesterday - Predestination - it's based on R A Heinlein's short story 'All you zombies'. It was actually faithful to the original story which is quite complex but fascinating. Even when you know the final plot twists and reveals, it's still very watchable.
