I've only just found this thread and can't believe that no one, as yet, has corrected "Leg of Lamb" to read "Lally of Lamb"....teehee!!
Ten years since the great Barry Took died, and Radio 4 Extra has various tributes, including this episode - http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/b00hzphb

Just as good as ever - even if we have heard it many times - many, many times...
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...
Today's featured article on - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page - celebrated the great man's birthday.
A Bank Holiday in my house.
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.
