Happy Easter everyone.

A BST win! what with the hour going forward and me taking a nighttime "cold capsule" I didn't wake up till 10.00!!!

Same here, but mine was due to jet lag from NY

A typical UK bank Holiday win with 100% crap on TV ......

Well just within my own range of interests...

Galaxy Quest, Foyle's War, Andrew Lloyd Weber Special.
(having seen the GQ send-up on CSI I'm looking forward to the original)

...seems the viewers with problems will be those who only watch sport.

Perhaps iplayer and clones can help?

In my experience those sort of viewers have their own problems anyway, quite apart from TV ..... Sky Sport is lowering the tone of the Country. Fact.

and clones can help?

If you've ever been to, or sadly heard a football match within yelling radius, they are already here. Grown men tanked up on beer, behaving like 10 year old kids. Won't be much different on the building site come Tuesday morning either. And they wonder why the country is in the state it is.

Mutter mutter, bring back conscription, mutter mutter,

Oh, hope you enjoyed NY Shannock :-)

Thank you yes - it's my favourite city despite being a native Londoner and once living in San Fran for 16 years.

After my (anti) sport rant I'm ashamed to say I will be watching the Boat Race starting about now.

Oh the Boat race is fine, and so is San Fran, fascinating place. Pier 39, Cable cars, Golden gate, Alcatraz. :-)

I had client in Bridgeport, CA - used to drive to work thru Yosemite on Monday morning thinking "And I'm being paid to do this". Happy days.

Winning(?) in front of the computer on what looks like a nicer day than yesterday. I should go out again. But my clothes are in the washer, waiting for me to put them in the dryer.

Winning on a partly-cloudy Easter Sunday. Got woke up at 0245 by a thunderstorm - thunder, lightning, torrential downpour for about 15 minutes - then all quiet. Slept until about 0730 - brilliant sunshine coming in my window, but now clouding up. Oh well, we need the rain....

Off to breakfast. Happy Easter!
