Gloucestershire had a good first day at Leicestershire today closing on 385 for 2.
That includes an opening partnership of 316 between Cameron Bancroft and Ben Charlesworth. That beat the previous record for an opening partnership against Leicestershire of 315 back in 1937. That was by Yorkshire,
The two Yorkshire players wee Herbert Sutcliffe and Len Hutton. Anyone who is interested in cricket is likely to heard of that two,

I’m not a cricket fan El….but remember Len Hutton from my youth

Slim, little new of interest on the Talking Pictures tv channel. . Next Saturday at 15.35 is "The Story of Robin Hood" (1952) which starred Richard Todd. It was Walt Disney's second live action film (the first being "Treasure Island"). It's a British film and some of it was filmed in Sherwood Forest. A good film  which relies more on the story rather than personalities.

Thank you El

I've seen both those films...admittedly it was many years ago, but I remember the joy of watching them

"scraps digital landline switch deadline" in the headline and "significantly delayed plans" in the first paragraph of this BBC news article doesn't quite match a delay from end of 2025 to January 2027 (so just over a year):

It's those with personal alarms linked to their landline who are most affected

We're already on wifi landline, which doesn't work if the internet goes down
They're counting on everyone having a smart mobile phone in order to go online to complain or access the link they send out with details of fault...

My brother's landline was switched over to digital a few weeks ago. As you say, doesn't work if the internet goes down, or there's a power cut.

Did my local shopping this morning rather than tomorrow which is likely to be the wettest day so far this year - 30mm quite possible. Not as bad as further north
