    Well I have, the dvd is carefully filed in a pile upstairs amongst the myriad of dvds I've watched, which is not quite as extensive as the myriad of dvds that I haven't watched.

    Still watching the commentary on "Once Upon A Time In The West", which is hardly surprising for a film that's cut to 2hrs 38mins.

    Which has led to me finding a few bonus links on the subject to post downthread, so a good thing in the end

    Sad news on Friday when Ozzy (named after Ozzy Ardiles because she had big Spurs), has "joined the bleedin' choir invisible".

    She was close to 5 years old, so lived 3x longer than she would have had we not rescued her.
    She went through the henopause a few months back and stopped laying, but last week she went blind and stopped eating.

    Just found that although I put laundry and detergent in the washing machine and selected the appropriate program about three hours ago, I didn't actually start it
