Best TV programmes of the week

QI – especially for the item on the bearded lady – which according to the show was a bear with a shaved face in a dress in 19th century fairgrounds.  I had a quick search and could not substantiate this!

Secret Tourists BBC
Yet more scams exposed.  Underage use of jet skis, and flagrant avoidance of safety procedures.  A hotel in Egypt which should be given a wide birth on health and safety issues. 

Album of the week


Reggae in Your Jeggae – 


A CD I bought in Mr CD in Berwick Street about ten years ago second hand.  Some cracking reggae tunes and some fantastic instrumentals.  The stand out instrumental as far as I am concerned is  Running Wild by the Witch Doctors – superb organ and drums on that one!

Fail of the week


Best thing to happen this week:



Well last week actually – found a dead rat when I moved our umbrella stand off the grass in the garden.   No more visiting rat in the garden.  Seems to be an August thing!

Actually got to clean the windows outside and in.  Wife not happy with me using a ladder, tried cleaner on a stick for upstairs, waste of money!  Back to using the ladders now and results much better.


Worst thing to happen this week :

Hoover Bags I ordered on ebay do not fit.  Ordered incorrect product, my error.  Seller tells me to open them up and try to fit.  Obvious the cardboard mount was too small, but he insists I open up a packet and try it in machine.  Doesn’t fit, seller says return for refund. I apologise for my mistake, he said not to say sorry he did not know what machine I owned! He spelt apologise apologaise!


Orange juice pack oozing orange juice all over fridge and needed to be cleaned up, very sticky.  Also can of ginger beer was almost at point of exploding, had been pushed to back of fridge on the freezing elements.
