    Walk walked; didn't need to go so far today as my several trips up and down related to bins had generously been recorded as exercise by the watch, but it still got me to green ring closed

    The alternative route I took led me past the chip shop that I generally regard as Not That Good, but looking in, it did occur to me that I've only ever gone there later in the evening, when stuff has been sitting around. At this time of the evening it's very busy and the rapid turnover means stuff would probably be in better nick. I must give it a teatime visit one of these days

    It'd help if the programmes had episode numbers. iPlayer seems to display them in an arbitrary order, which means I've watched the biomass and gas ones, which appear to have been episodes two and three, but are separated by two weeks in their expiration dates, while one and two are separated by a week, as are three and four. And all of them show a "First shown" date of 20th August at 7:30pm, which implies they ran them all simultaneously

    And so it transpired.

    Entertainment: more of "The Sting (1973)", the film that launched Scott Joplin despite him being dead.

    Walking Britain's lost railways on 5 at 20:00.

    Something about The Ghan on ITV+1 at 21:00 (Griff's Australian Adventure, the Ghan is a train).

    More of "The Sting (1973)".

    Any or all of the above may or may not transpire as the fancy takes me.

    Not forgetting the last part of "Decision at Sundown (1957)" with Old Stoneface himself.

    I dunno why I like Randolph Scott films but I do, and this one is a Budd Boetticher film so that's double plus.

    TOTP 1990 was tulip.
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    Rave from the grave on Talking Pictures: "Out (1978)" with Tom Bell.

    Feck me it's a looooong time since I watched that.

    The Griff Rhys Jones thing was amusing enough, & the preceding Lost British Railway lines thing was inneresting too, the Barnstaple to Lynton narrow gauge line being half of it.

    Dinner was much dim sum and other things

    Ents was Train to Busan (2016) - IMDb an excellent fillum that has been on the list for a while. The best and worst of humanity in under 2 hours.

    Now I'm inflicting Tremors (1990) - IMDb on HWMBO for a larf. Oh how young Kevin Bacon looks

    For some odd reason I've got the box set of Tremors.

    I have no idea why.

    Then again, I'm currently watching some Septic lady called Megan Fox investigating the supernatural powers of Stonehenge, Silbury Hill, and Avebury.

    Or not as the case may be.

    Tea has been the remaining appendages of the Big Chicken, reheated in the oven, with chips and lashings of ketchup

    The remainder of the fowl is now ready for soup making; chicken and barley this time, I reckon
