  1. One thing I learned. It must be fun being an anaesthetist. You only have to remember the start of a story and not bother with the ending.
  2. A day for me to smile. Had my cancerous prostate removed yesterday and being allowed home today. From beginning to end the journey was painless. Yes, I’ll have to carry a catheter for a few days, and may have some Incontinence for a while, but at least I’m cancer-free!
  3. And the winners of the special award for being constantly on the BBC coverage and saying absolutely nothing of any interest are Nicholas Witchell and Gyles Brandreth.
  4. There’s also a slight lag between SD and HD, and between them and 4K. Which can be a pain when the wife turns the kitchen TV up to 11 and drowns out the sound on our other TV. For some reason, she always seems to put the SD broadcast on, even when HD is available.
  5. A relative of my first wife decided to become vegetarian and declared that he would only eat egg and chips, because he didn’t like salad or any kind of green food. His local chippy in Wigan always cooked their chips in best dripping, and nobody had the heart to tell him the awful truth. Mind you, one result of his “diet” was that it caused him to suffer awful haemorrhoids.

    If you want to see how long the queue is to see HM’s coffin, the government have kindly provided a link.
  8. The short strip of the old road outside the farm shop was used for parking when I was bike racing in the 60s/70s as it was where the start/finish lines were for 10-mile time trial events (it’s exactly five miles from there to Oxton Island).
  9. The sticker may have disappeared when people started making comments about the name and Prince Andrew.
  10. Bit of a trek for you, but Spring Lane Farm Shop’s meat and bakery isn’t half bad.
  11. I wonder if it was arson or accidental. I remember going there and they had one of those Kamado BBQs outside for display. They retailed at about £750! Next thing, I read that it had disappeared overnight.

    Pity he couldn’t find anyone to run an iron over his shirt, though.
  13. It was. Named after Robert Smith, the banker who became the first Baron Carrington, ancestor of Lord Carrington who served in Margaret Thatcher’s government.
  14. From his post-match comments, Cooper seems to realise that he has to be a bit more radical in his tactics, and a bit more ruthless in player selection. Are the likes of Worrall, Yates and Cook good enough for the Premiership? It may take a few more games for the new players to mesh, and for him to establish tactics that suit, but I’m hopeful that they’ll start to produce results soon.
  15. And then there’s Jake Bugg, capturing the spirit of Clifton. I drink to remember, I smoke to forget Some things to be proud of some stuff to regret Gone down some dark alleys in my own head But something is changing, changing, changing I go back to Clifton to see my old friends The best people I could ever have met We skin up a fat one, hide from the Feds And something is changing, changing, changing So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain Light a cigarette and wish the world away I got out, I got out, out alive and I'm here to stay So I hold two
