    Don't be giving him ideas, that would be a new way to try and seed interest in his non-tension eliminations. "The act leaving the X Factor and going straight to the gulag is........................................................................Rak Su!" (I googled the band name...)

    Salome Bey, Canada's First Lady of Blues, has died. She was believed to be around 75. Bey had long been struggling with Alzheimer's. https://www.iheartradio.ca/news/canada-s-first-lady-of-blues-salome-bey-dies-1.13203792 (Trivia: Bey is the first person to have a line - shared or solo - as part of the Northern Lights song 'Tears Are Not Enough', Canada's contribution to Ethiopian relief back in 1985, who has now died. Up until now, only chorus member Oscar Peterson and John Candy had passed. The song included the likes of Gordon Lightfoot, Burton Cummings, Anne Murray, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bryan Adams and many others.)

    Started watching Merlin. Three episodes in, and it's not bad, and I'm finding it quite entertaining, if not exactly compulsive. I'd assumed this was a children's show, but it's more for a general audience.

    I totally agree. This was the worst pick I had ever seen selected by the committee.

    I hope this fucker is ditched next year. If not we may as well just pick 50 of the oldest parents of famous people.

    A few years back when I was having a health scare, I mused aloud to Mrs Msc about the concept of dying and no one ever finding out, like we assumed had happened to Magere. Quick as a flash, she replied: "Don't worry, I'd let your fellow loonies know..."

    I for one had never heard of the bloke, and am none the wiser now. As for misinterpreting the thread, I don't really know what it's supposed to be for. Nothing new, that's for certain.
