    Two courses from the Club Gascon cook at home menu down. Short break taken to see what's going on with Strictly.

    Busyness: unknown as Janet was doing stuff in the kitchen; but one of the delivery guys came back with three bags and went straight out again with one, so I assume it was the now-standard "not as busy as earlier"

    Strictly was followed by QI XL and then the Film Review while we waited for Have I Got A Bit More News For You to download to the iPlayer desktop app.

    Just discovered that Shure stopped making cartridges 2 years ago.

    That's a bit of a bugger.

    Oh dear. I’ve exhausted The Dog (tw) with over 14km of walking today.

    A rewatch of something I haven't seen since I don't know when, but probably the 1980s and possibly even the 1970s, was first on tonight's schedule: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), in which cowboy stuff happens. It's very good

    I've always thought it's quite interesting how Westerns were such a huge thing in popular entertainment, then suddenly vanished completely in the mid-1970s. AFAIK there's no evidence that audiences stopped liking them, just that movie and TV executives decided not to make them any more because they assumed that audiences no longer wanted them; but on the rare occasions they were made after that, they always seemed to be successful

    And to follow, a rewatch of Everest (2015), which inspired me to want to climb the eponymous mountain, then reminded me why that would be a really bad idea

    Back in, I think, 1982, my brother persuaded me to come along with him and some of his friends from Oxford to the Lake District for Easter. On Easter Saturday we all set out to climb Scafell Pike, and it was ******* horrible. I hated every second of it, and eventually me and one of his friends refused to go any further, then sheltered behind a rock for sodding ages while the others went to the top as hailstorms kept sweeping past us. Then we all took a wrong turn on the way down, and got lost, and in the end me and the friend just slid on our arses down a load of scree to the valley while my brother and his other friend went the long way back and then round the right way. Once we were down in the valley, the friend went back to be sure they found the way, while I went onwards to the pub with instructions to call Mountain Rescue if they weren't all back within two hours. In the pub I found a pint of Old Peculier on hand pump, a hot meat and potato pie, and a folk band tuning up before launching into loads of rousing tunes. Then the rest of the party arrived, all safe and sound; but I figured we could have avoided no end of bulltulip by just going for the pints, pies and music in the first place. The next day we were supposed to climb Helvellyn, but the friend and I refused point blank to go. I spent much of the day in a bookshop in Ambleside, which is much more my kind of thing

    So I doubt I'll be climbing Everest any time soon, as it seems like an awful lot of effort and risk for no good reason

    And finally The Sopranos S5E2 Rat Pack (TV Episode 2004) and S5E3 Where's Johnny? (TV Episode 2004). Junior's gradual decline is one of the most poignant subplots of the series; oh, spoiler alert BTW

    Goodnight all
