What a lovely day you had Eileen and what luck you had meeting the owner of the house you were looking for!

Long time since we had a post on this thread..........

Have been doing a bit of tidying up among my music related stuff of late and put a mini disc into the player with the title only of J Walker and the date somewhat obscured.

Have spent the last hour (having our tea at the same time) listening to a Friday Drivetime show. Music great, Martin Shankelman on the business (US dollar rate given as 1.66....) Mystery Voice not guessed at £70 and Cruisin' just about to start.

Great listening to Johnnie and Sally Traffic of course and the whole thing sounding almost too grown up even to be on on Radio 4............ O/H's comment 'that's what you need a bit of business chat and good music' if only those in charge would take heed..... Maybe I'll send them a copy to remind them of how good Radio 2 was then. It was summer and Wimbledon was starting the next week with Greg Rusedski still playing according to the sports guy.

H

PS Richard Allinson is off from Magic Drive this week doing breakfast instead hence my not having anything to listen to!

Reading your post,Helen, reminded me of a poster on the BBC TV board...Doghouse Riley....who was always railing against the lowering standards etc across the BBC. He was quite a lone voice back then. Thinking about it now he was ahead of the curve. Rolling Eyes

Listening to Richard Allinson tonight playing Temptations' 'My Girl' tonight and remembering seeing them live at the Talk Of The Town with my Dad while on a trip to London (I must have bribed him to see the Temptations !) then I realised that it's exactly 50 years ago, almost to the day. We were at the the catering exhibition which was at Olympia every January.......

Nice memory of my Dad.

Lovely,Helen.

I was in a little town next to the one I live in and bumped (literally) into a woman who used to live next door to me when I (and she) was a child.

Both big families we had lots of happy times together.

Seeing Margaret has had me smiling all day long, remembering those times so long ago. Smile

I have a camera nest box and a blue tit has just about completed her nest. She spends the night in there now. I check each morning to see if the first egg has been laid. Early this evening I saw a blue tit pulling at bits of the fluffy wool I have dangling from the bird pole, she flew up into a tree, I switched the TV channel over to watch the nest box and she flew in to settle it in place Smile

A great tit has been in and out of the very old nest box and most mornings I hear the sound of beak on wood as she rummages around.

Made my day watching 99 year old Tom walking round his garden for the NHS

Coronavirus: Army veteran Tom Moore, 99, raises £1.4m for NHS

Now there are 8 baby blue tits and both parents are busy feeding them.

Also I have seen house sparrows taking nesting material into the old nest box.

The ninth and last egg finally hatched a few days after the others and it is amazing to compare this newest baby with the others. They develop so quickly. Still, this tiny one seems pretty feisty so I am hopeful it will do OK.
