    And that's it done & dusted, the commentary watched & all the stuff on the 2nd dvd of the collector's edition.

    Feck me it took a while.

    But then, without Jeremy Kyle what are we retired persons supposed to do with ourselves?

    Oh, lunch was the last of the Ginsters Cornish pasties with heinz bkaed beans on Morrisons seeded toast.

    Living the dream as ever.

    I think I'll do the beef carrots & onions thing this evening.

    It must be said that I found OUATITW much more satisfying this time around than I remember finding it half a century ago.

    I have a copy of "Once Upon A Time In America" on the shelf but I don't think I have "A Fistful of Dynamite".

    For those interested, apparently the Smithsonian Channel has stuff about the path to Apollo this evening at 20:00.


    Tea/dinner was, as predicted, beef with carrots and onions.

    It was very nice.

    The Apollo thing starts with Sputnik and the first less than successful Septic launches.

    Took bin full of lawn cuttings from a few days ago to garden waste recycling and was amazed to find it was really warm. Apparently compost can get up to 77 degrees C, I never knew that. I'm going to cover my carpet in compost come the winter to save on heating oil.

    PBS is now showing a series of interviews of old soldiers from WWI, interviewed for the 1960s BBC programme "The Great War".

    Ribs and chips for tea

    It's quite mild out, and not too cloudy; very nice sunset earlier, judging by the bits I saw

    Still got the weather warnings for thunderstorms over the next couple of days though

    Tonight's TV was the first two episodes of S2 of Spiral/Engrenages

    I manage to pick out the odd word or even phrase from the remnants of my O Level French, at which I was apparently so good that my French teacher thought I should do it at A Level. But there's something about the French language that has always grated on me, so I'll stick with the subtitles

    Goodnight all
