    Currently on BBC7 is an episode of RtH featuring the 'History of the crumpet', which KH managed to slip in with his own hand - and for which he got his knuckles firmly rapped..

    Watching The Prisoner episodes at a set time, like it used to be in the good old days of real telly, has been quite a good experience - I may try to listen to RtH at two o'clock on a Sunday afternoon...

    And then spend all day at school on Monday analysing it....

    Today being Kenneth Horne's Birthday, I took advantage of the National Holiday and went to RAF Cosford for the day. I was originally intending to go to Claverton Manor, near Bath, as he had been the commanding officer of a barrage balloon unit there during the war (even though that sounds like the start of a sketch). Unfortunately, Claverton Manor is now the home of the American Museum in Britain and it's not open until next month.

    Anyway, I got to see an Argosy again, which still has the nicest 'face' of any aircraft.

    On the way in, I noticed signs offering directions to the 'RAF Regiment Breakfast' - I chose to avoid following them, of course. I can't imagine what it would look like...

    I was wondering what to do after reading the hospital thread to cheer myself up. I think along with opening another bottle, listening to a couple of episodes of RTH should do the trick.
