Good morning everyone 

It’s raining here again. El, I hope you get that sunshine.

Squiggle, Rear Window is one of my favourite films. I love James Stewart and Grace Kelly was absolutely beautiful.

Ros, I agree that public firework displays is the way to go.

Have a good day, all.

 

Good morning everyone

 

Cloudy here with a possibility of rain some time.

 

Yogi, I hope you have a nice time with the tiddlers

 

Out for a time this morning to collect accounting records from a client - routine meeting.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Good morning everyone  

Dry here after a wet night. Showers off and on too come so looking like a day in for me 

 

Squiggle, I hope you get that dry day 

El, I hope your collecting goes well 

Yogi, have a lovely day with the little ones 

 

Enjoy your day everyone 

Moonie, I'm back from that collecting in the dry - sky very dark now so rain expected . I've been doing the annual accounts for the client for several years - it's not a registered charity but the accounts and my work are very similar to that for a charity - no tax work involved as the income isn't taxable as such.

Old British film from 1943 on the Talking Pictures channel called "Variety Jubilee" in the schedule for early Wednesday morning at 4 am. Story is of 3 generations of music hall owners spanning the early 1900s to the early 1940s,

 

Film is only of interest to anyone interested in music hall acts and songs from that time as the film has numerous acts and songs. Besides songs which are associated with wars (such as "It's a Long Way to Tipperary" and "'Till the Boys come Home" there are songs such as "If you were the only girl in the world", "I do like to be beside the seaside" and "After the Ball" which some of the lyrics and music are quite well known.

 

One of the acts is "Wilson Keppel & Betty", the famous sand dancers who dressed up in psuedo-Egyptian outfits. I don't know which routine(s) they did for the film so might not include their much imitated one.

I have seen them on film El. Very funny 

The new Tesco clubcard advert is likely to cause outrage from anyone who has seen the film Casablanca. It's taken the famous farewell scene between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman and has replaced their dialogue.

This is the famous scene:

Tesco should be condemned.

El, I’ve just seen that ad on the television. It’s good but shouldn’t be allowed 

Good morning everyone

 

Cloudy and dry here, forecast to turn wet later.

 

Yogi, I'm glad you had a good day with the tiddlers and hope you have a nice time out and about with hubby

 

That Tesco clubcard advert may have been shown ahead of schedule as it refers to things coming into operation from Friday. Can't find the advert online yet.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Good morning everyone  

It’s cold but dry for now. A lot of rain expected after midday 

I will probably go out before then 

 

Yogi, I see you are going out and about today. Grocery wouldn’t be on the list would it? 

Have a super day, one and all

Moonie, I hope you get back home before the rain comes Here the forecast is for two lots of rain, one in a couple of hours time and one tonight.

 

Velvet, all is OK here

Hi El and Velvet 

Yep, back now El and still bone dry 

Velvet, I hope you’re okay 

BBC article looking at nuclear fusion - "a question of when, not if":
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/sci...environment-50267017

 

Scientists have been trying to do this for decades as it would have a huge impact on generating energy supplies. Trouble is that so far as much energy is needed to create fusion as the energy created.

 

Not to be confused with fission which is what has been used for years. Fusion is what the Sun does. Only a small amount of material would be needed to generate fusion energy.

 

Star Trek impulse drive is an example of fusion energy in science fiction. Not to be confused with warp drive which is just science fiction - at present.
