    The Hershey Bar Run

    Recalling the poll by DtS about the "chocolate finger" reminded me of a story told to me by a good friend who is Italian. I met Frankie many years ago through business, and had a number of trips to his home near Florence and we were good friends. When he was single he was involved working in...
  3. Spamalot Tickets

    Due to me being a singleton again and my mate's missus being so pregnant she can't fit in the seats, I have 2 Spamalot tickets for sale for this coming Friday (27.4.07).

    On the hooch.-gutted-again

    After Sunday, hoped to have something to cheer. No chance. To cap it all, walked back to the bus stop-next bus 50 mins-called a taxi-never turned up. Persuaded my 11 year old to walk home from the Palace Theatre to the Elms. Sometimes, it just aint your night! Well, indoors now & having...

    Groundhog Day

    My favourite film... Sunday February 1, 2004 The Observer (Today) is Groundhog Day. Perhaps your diary does not remind you of this celebration; mine lists nothing between Epiphany and St Valentine's. Maybe because the 117-year-old Groundhog festival takes place in Punxsutawney, western...

    Got some tickets today to see comedian Ross Noble at the Palace Theatre on the recommendation of a work colleague. I've seen him on TV a bit but has anyone seen his work before? Any good?
