    Morning denizens

    I was down at five to seven to open the gate for the bins, only to find somebody had left it open all night

    They were probably annoyed at the bins not being emptied last week but that was due to it being relocked by somebody later in the morning. I'll now have to keep checking it's closed on Thursday night until whoever it is calms down and stops unlocking it

    Anyway, I was straight back to bed after that and, arising, I find it's just as grey now as it was then

    I love The Bridge but I've already watched all three of them twice in less than a year

    The fourth is supposed to be arriving this year some time

    You could put a note on the gate facing inwards stating when it's locked and unlocked for bins OR just put a note through all the relevant neighbours - make sure you sign your name.

    I have much fellow feeling with Saga.

    Neither of us understand hu-mans very well.

    My entertainment last evening consisted of an ep of "Person of Interest" which was truly odd, followed by the remake of "Point Blank" entitled "Payback" and starring the AustraloSeptic antisemite himself.

    It was ok, but not a patch on Lee Marvin in "Point Blank".
    I preferred Grosse Pointe Blank with John Cusack.

    Learnt it isn't a good idea to read some comments to/from NLyUK while in a meeting with mic not on mute.

    Notes on the gate are generally ignored, judging by past responses to notices (not from me, usually from the residents' association chap who issues the keys) asking people to keep it locked

    And the relevant neighbours constitute getting on for twenty houses, most of which are split into four or five flats. If they're anything like my place, fliers tend to pile up in halls, unread; so I doubt the message would reach most of them.

    They'll get fed up with unlocking it before I get fed up with locking it. We've been down this road before, and They have no staying power

    Apparently there's a Directors Cut with much in the way of changes.

    I much preferred "Parker" with Jason Statham if I'm honest.


    Nick: have you watched the Sky version of "The Bridge", entertainingly entitled "The Tunnel"?

    The first one was ok, I've never got around to watching the 2nd one, in much the same way that I've not watched the London based "24".

    Is anyone watching the 24 reboot with someone who appears not to be Kieffer Sutherland?

    No, I haven't bothered with that. If they do it in Danish and Swedish with English subtitles, I might give it a try

    Post has just gone up on our 10k+ strong local community Facebook page advising the local MP is marking Women's day by coming and having a talk a local church. Last comment on the mail says...

    (Men are welcome too but please note the event is to specifically discuss women's issues).

    It's only been up 15 mins and it's going off already. Someone has already posted the sticks and stones video. Nice big bag of popcorn at the ready.
