Leaders’ debate lack of interest

April 24th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Life, Politics

I have to admit I wasn’t paying full attention to the second leaders’ debate on Sky News.  This was partly due to Sky’s even-worse-than-ITV production,  partly due to the blatant bias towards Cameron, but mostly due to having this sort of thing going on at the same time… You need to a flashplayer enabled browser […]

I stopped watching Gillette Soccer Saturday a while ago for some reason, and yesterday was out campaigning in Horsham anyway, but it looks like I missed a classic… You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

Good news on the kitten front

March 19th, 2010 · Comments Off on Good news on the kitten front · Life

It appears that the local farm’s cat has had kittens, and they are happy to give them away to a good home.  They have a pair of tabbies of, as yet, unascertained gender.   They are still too young to be removed from their mother, but as soon as they are old enough we can have […]

The car in front is a Renault

March 18th, 2010 · Comments Off on The car in front is a Renault · Life

This bit of motorway madness is unbelievable – especially the idea that this happened back in January but when the vehicles came to a stop and the police attended, neither driver told them exactly what happened.  More here. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

Get Better

Even now, with only two survivors who are both past their prime, the Who can still pull off a spectacular show.   The memory of seeing the bloody terrible Las Vegas concert on TV recently was still fresh so I was half-expecting a bit of car crash TV, but the Superbowl half-time show was magnificent.

Kidjo and Carlos

January 18th, 2010 · Comments Off on Kidjo and Carlos · Music

Two of my favourites together on stage: Carlos Santana and Angelique Kidjo   When Jayne treated me to Santana tickets for my birthday (quite a long time ago) Angelique Kidjo joined him for this song – which she wrote and he covered on his Shamen album.   It made my day then, and finding this clip […]
