Re: Decent Radio

It made my morning when I was scraping the ice from the car, causing me to laugh out loud. I checked the iplayer when I got in, just to make sure I'd heard right of course, and it was on there.

Re: Comprehensive Spending Review

Well-known by who? I have not had a day off in over 10 years, (apart from legitimate holidays) and I consistently work above and beyond my job description, as do many, many council workers. Do you...

Re: General Election UK 2010

Clegg sounded decidedly unsure of himself when being interviewed on PM by Eddie Mair this week. He ummed and aahed his way through, and was embarrasingly hesitant. He sounded as if he was looking in...

Interesting body language here.

Re: General Election UK 2010

I watched it, (or listened mainly), and Cameron was definitely the worst. I thought Brown managed to put him on the spot about issues, not soundbites, and he floundered badly. Clegg sounded okay, but...

Re: New Words What We Have Learnt

SONNET 116

Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed...

Re: Shutter Island

I can't see that pairing at all Bill. I could probably see Bogart more in the Leo role, with that edge-of-madness-cracking-up type acting he could do so well, and possibly what-sis-name who also...

Re: Top 10 weepies - literature (not films)

I thought I'd already posted on this, but it must have been somewhere else, or perhaps another thread. Anyway I can get a lump in my throat, and a little tear at quite a few things, but say Jude the...

Re: Orange Prize for Fiction 2010

I think that's being rather harsh John. I agree that the titles of those books are a bit iffy, but I enjoyed the tv programmes, and I don't think she equates being popular with "not too gloomy,...

Re: Shutter Island

I've just got back from the cinema after seeing this. I hadn't read the book, so I don't know if any liberties were taken with the story. I have to say though that I agree with Bill, and would give...

Re: Top 10 sad songs

I love this aria from Cosi fan Tutte, it's really beautiful, but I think sad. I was struck recently by its aptness when used in The House of Mirth, when Lily goes on the cruise......:-(

Re: Issues and Problems

Hi John. No, I still have the same e-mail address. I thought I must be doing something wrong, as I'm not very techy. Actually, I'm a bit of a jinx around anything modern or electrical, hence the fact...

Re: Sherlock Holmes & Arthur Conan Doyle

I haven't checked back in the thread, so these may have been mentioned, but for anyone wanting to read Sherlock, surely this is a great bargain. Okay, not a bibliophile's dream of collectable books,...

Re: I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue
