    ... out that we have muscles in our ears.

    I 'know' this because I had to Google it, to put my mind at rest about the fact that, for three days now, one of them has developed a twitch, producing a gentle drumming sound in short bursts, but for about 50% of the time.

    Imagine a twitching eyelid, but about twice as fast and set to 'music'.

    ... a secret stash of DVDs that I had laid down for emergencies such as this.

    So secret is it, that I had no knowledge of it myself.

    Having exhausted the supply that I brought with me, I was about to rewatch the Beiderbecke Trilogy, but I now have the entire first series of The Sweeney, some Likely Lads, Citizen Smith, Michael Palin, even some Tony Hancock.


    In terms of the previous post, I note that, for the last three days at least, I have not had a hard disc chattering away in my ear.

    I have watched Car Share last week, I understand that was made in the current century.

    The car gives it away.

    Reading the Sweeney DVD notes answered a question and then revealed a, to me, astounding fact. I had for some time been trying to remember the name of a 1970s TV series with a name something like, but not, Paper Tiger. One of the people mentioned was Prunella Gee, whose full-frontal scene was what made it, and her, noteworthy. The further fact that I subsequently discovered about her was that for five years, she was married to Ken Campbell.

    I suspect that, if I was to launch a dating agency, it would fail.


    Ah, it was Shabby Tiger.

    The fox gloves have gone mad in the garden this year. I'm sure you're not supposed to leave all the self setters in but who cares. IMG_20200610_162528_931.jpg

    Self-setters are an engine of the evolution that got us this far.

    They know what they're doing...
