    Oh, go on, do! I haven't thought about Houseparty in years. I occasionally worked alongside one of the ladies who used to be on it. Not one of the regulars.

    Has anyone mentioned that it's actually a tricycle, not a bike?

    I would have to have heard of him first.

    Was he singing "Durham Town"?

    The best one I remember was from about 20 years ago. Geespot .... by Pursuit of Love out of My Discovery Sheer brilliance, that one

    Queen Elizabeth II

    It's just thinking. I'm sure she can multi-task while reigning On a serious note, it's quite interesting trying to come up with a good name for a racehorse. A couple of trainers local to me sometimes invite suggestions for one on their Facebook pages as a competition.

    Queen Elizabeth II

    The Queen fell in love with Philip when she was only 13. If they'd been lower class oiks, they'd probably have been at it like knives.

    Queen Elizabeth II

    No idea, but I do know that the Queen puts a lot of thought into naming her home-bred racehorses. There is usually a connection to the name of the sire or dam or both. She also breeds Fell ponies and no doubt takes similar trouble over naming them.

    Just for accuracy, she's not at Balmoral; the photo was taken at Windsor. BBC report says the horse's name is Balmoral Fern which is probably the source of the confusion.

    Oops, that crept up on me. I meant to spend more time over this. Never mind, at least I'm in. Team sent.

    It's not relevant at all. You're all just guessing a made-up number.

    Isn't that Ron Dixon from Brookside?

    I nearly didn't bother because I assumed there would be a flood of extremely obscure people at death's door, and since I don't know of anybody like that it didn't seem worth my while. But at least I'm familiar with some of the entries.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    I watched two or three episodes, but it failed to grab me. I think you needed to have played the game, as I found it incomprehensible. It should have been the sort of thing I like, but it was badly done.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Yeah, but Twin Peaks is a cult classic. Not saying I never watch anything American, just the average sort of thing doesn't tend to draw me in. I tried Mad Men, watched half a dozen episodes of that, but I was bored. Nothing happened. The period detail was marvellous, but I actually remember it from childhood, so it didn't have that fascination that it must have had for younger people. I slogged through one and a half seasons of Breaking Bad and was bored shitless. Just so many series seem to be about drug deals, doesn't interest me in the slightest.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    I did watch the first episode of Upload as I liked the Black Mirror ones (San Junipero and ... something with DJ in the title?). Wasn't hooked but I should maybe give it another chance. Watched 3 episodes of The Good Place but it didn't do anything for me and I found the lead actress irritating. I am picky, I know. I don't watch much TV, maybe one episode of whatever I'm currently watching per day. Two at the max. Rarely anything else. So it has to be good. I don't sit in front of the telly all evening like I once did.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    On this point. That's why I supplied a list of things I have liked, hoping for suggestions in a similar vein. It's no good recommending, say, LOTR to someone who doesn't like imaginary worlds, or Grey's Anatomy to someone who doesn't like hospital dramas, just because you (general you) enjoyed them yourself. There's a lot of costume drama on my list, or pseudo-historical, low fantasy type stuff. From which you can deduce that I don't mind a bit of blood and guts (although I do find lengthy fighting and battle a bit boring and tend to glaze over). I have got both series of Rome on DVD stashed away. I think I will like that, but have been saving it in case my internet failed during lockdown. Also some slightly off-the-wall things like Sex Education and The End of the F***ing World. Oh, and This Country. That needs to go on the list. I've never watched Twin Peaks. Started it a couple of times but not been hooked. Should I like that, do you think?

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    This chap seems to talk a lot of sense. He keeps up with the latest research findings and does a daily video.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Not talking about herd immunity. I'm just talking about those individuals who have already had the virus. They will feel that they are not running much risk compared to those who haven't had it.

    That post box is a giveaway. There are odd little streets in Paris that have houses a bit like that, but they tend to be narrow cobbled lanes. Not the ideal place for a centenarian to be cycling

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Oh yes, I watched Bodies a while ago. Compulsive viewing, although perhaps a little too much of Max Beesley's hairy arse. Never heard of Rake, will look it up. Other things I have recently watched but wasn't sold on. They passed the time, but I didn't feel I'd watched something really good, iykwim. Two Harlan Coben adaptations, Safe and The Stranger. Both a bit predictable. And a Stephen King thing that was so painfully sloooooow and a bit crap all round. It was weekly episodes or I wouldn't have stuck with it. A week was just enough to forget how bad the previous episode had been. The Outsider (just had to look it up as I couldn't even remember the title). ETA I forgot to include The Man in the High Castle and The Crown on my list of likes. Added now.
