    Coronavirus.

    Never been a fan of this 'crossing the line' business. Regardless of party, it's a betrayal of the constituency vote. If you're unhappy with your position in Parliament, you should ask for a by-election in your constituency (or resign and generate one.)

    Think of the Day.

    Rooted about online and found this drone video showing the Winking Man still winks (well, when sighted from a drone anyway.) It used to wink when you drove along that road.

    Think of the Day.

    Yes a favourite was the Rock when I was camping up that way. Another favourite was the Travellers Rest which is a bit further up the road toward Buxton ... past the 'Winking Man' rock formation. I'm told the Winking Man doesn't wink any more because somebody went up there and hammered off the...

    Think of the Day.

    I saw a picture online this morning and I thought I'd immediately recognized where it was. Back in the day I used to do a fair bit of climbing, and one easily accessible site is the Roaches, a large outcropping of rock on the road between Leek and Buxton, (just inside Staffordshire.) I...

    What are we watching on TV?

    Some programs do, but not many. They tend to blend in IMDB series which have admittedly minimum advertising. But there's some good TV on Amazon Prime.

    Look Out Of Your Window Now! Astronomical events.

    Yes seeing those videos of the shock wave coming in ... not the tsunami, but an atmospheric shockwave, makes this one a hugely explosive event. Literally blew the island apart. A Krakatoa style event.

    What are we watching on TV?

    Well I have Netflix and Amazon Prime and the whole Sky menagerie but my favourite channel is still BBC4. It's nice to sit and not have to watch mind numbing advertising and I see that on streaming with some providers, they've stopped you being able to fast forward during the adverts. If you add...

    (And of course Oliver was not averse sticking a cannon ball down your throat or a sword up your jacksi if he got really angry.) :eek:

    Look Out Of Your Window Now! Astronomical events.

    Looking at that area on Google Earth you can see the originating island of Hung Ha Apai, about 40 miles north of Tonga. The seabed is littered with craters there as it is very close to a huge tectonic plate boundary. Some reports are suggesting the island has been significantly altered by the...

    Electric cars.

    It is difficult to imagine 007 driving an Aston Marina. It would have to be pink, but how would that go with the motorised Gatling guns in each wing. Of course this opinion is probably politically incorrect .... I mean ... a future Bond film would have to have Lena Headey as Ernst Stavro...

    What are we watching on TV?

    @littleme suggested The Squid Game a few posts ago. I watched the first one this afternoon. I ended up watching 5 in a row. It's Korean set and made and has fairly dubious English dubbing, but think of it as a combination of 'The Prisoner,' 'The Hunger Games,' all set against good sets clearly...

    Coronavirus.

    You do have to wonder how he treats the general public with such contempt (with a smirk on his face) by coming out with such bull shit. A man with an Eton education and then a second rate degree in the 'classics.' (Personally I'd ask for my money back on the education.)

    Your top 5 things about Stafford

    I can remember seeing Roy Wood and Wizard at the Polytech on Beaconside in the early 70's. I was driving a Trojan Bubble Car at the time (bike licence only.) Don't really know why I went because I wasn't much of a fan of that band. Then they made that Christmas Song and my indifference turned to...
