    I do find it all interesting. It's a bizarre mix of the comic and tragic, with a hint of the inevitable thrown in .
    The word is 'valves' in this country, not tubes. Tubes are what Smarties come in!

    Watching Trifonov's piano performance on Sky Arts just now reminded me of why I disliked playing Chopin as a youngster. Music shouldn't be about showing off.

    We haven't had any post delivered here for the last week - there have been several Covid19 casualties in our local sorting office. In fact one of my near neighbours who works there recently fell victim, but luckily has recovered and is now back at work.

    So today I was very surprised to receive four Christmas cards and an out-of-date copy of the Radio Times!

    That's why I'm not an admirer of Lang Lang.

    Nearly had an altercation with an old guy in the supermarket (must've been in his late 60s, or 70), as he was clearly leering/perving at Del because she had a little skirt on...

    It was Del who told me, as she'd noticed him and just laughed, but it pissed me off. I just left it though, as she didn't want a fuss and kind of felt sorry for him, but he was making it so bloody obvious, the dirty old bugger!!

    I can laugh now, but at the time it was kinda creepy, Anyway, thought I'd give you lot a giggle... That's about as exciting as life has been here recently!

    Thing is, her skirt wasn't that short mainly black with a a touch of pink), and she had black opaque tights on with Doc Martin ankle boots (they were pink though, lol), and a black coat, so not exactly 'provocative'!

    I guess we can laugh, but what if she'd been on her own? The shop was pretty quiet (and smaller inside because it was Lidl).

    Well, peoples’ idea of provocative varies wildly. I’m sure nothing would have happened mate. Probably just a lonely chap who likes looking at the ladies.

    Yeah, perhaps. I was more bothered than Del, she just laughed and whispered to me what an old perv

    I'm sure you wouldn't want it happening to your girlfriend, though!
