    That'd be a lot of monkeys.
    Two hundred and ten years’ worth, as they do twenty thirty-minute episodes a year

      Episode 1 expires on Tuesday, so get in quick!

      Reminds me of a friend of mine who wrote a song about Belfast Central.

        Tea has been a roast lamb dinner, and it was absolutely delicious

        The half-shoulder joint Sainsbury’s sent was about twice as big as I’d asked for, but it was well worth it as it was full of flavour

        I think I’ll use the bone and the rest of the meat to make scouse. There should be a few decent portions out of the large amount still left.

          Entertainment: bits and pieces of stuff, can't settle with anything much.

          Started with "The Human Stain" with Anthony Hopkins and Nichol Kidman which got turned off after 40 minutes or so.

          Then on we went to David Stratton's Stories of Australian Cinema which was inneresting in parts and tedious in others, though we did make it to the end.

          Then on to Civilisation E11 "The Worship of nature" which, rather than being replete with howling Germans or Italians, is replete with fecking poetry from the likes of Wordsworth, read by C. Day Lewis.

          Since I detest most poetry this is currently paused to give me a little rest from it.

          Only another half an hour to go.

          I suspect that I've not enjoyed "Civilisation" in quite the way I enjoyed "America" or "The Ascent of Man", probably because I'm a philistine.

          And an engineer.

          E12 is entitled "The Fallacies of Hope".

          I'll drink to that.

            Tonight’s reading was The Valley of Fear, being one of the two-stories-for-the-price-of-one Holmes novels. Having investigated the background to the American-set part of the story, which it turns out sprang from Doyle’s acquaintance with Pinkerton of detective agency fame, I found the literary device less irritating this time

              Overcast out there. Likely to rain I suspect.

                    Dry.

                    Cool.

                    Sunny.

                    White sky.

                    Telex machine much too clean again.

                    Monday.

                    Various of the literati busily pontificating on the wireless.

                      I want to see the hand of history on his collar.
