    Apparently they're making a film next year about the discovery of Richard III's remains, starring Steve Coogan.

    I hope it makes it clear that it wasn't a public car park, it was the private car park of the council's Social Services department, because I'm tired of having to explain that to people who don't know Leicester

    On the evening of the day they uncovered him*, an archaeologist I remembered from university days (he was a year or two after me) came in the back bar of the pub and told the five or six of us in there that it was definitely him, though he wasn't allowed to tell us why they were so certain at that point

    *They found there was a skeleton there on the Monday but didn't excavate it then; apparently they go along taking off the top layer, then decide where to concentrate their efforts. So they left him covered up with a tarp, then on Wednesday they went back and did the careful bit with the trowel and the little brush, which was the first time they saw his spine and realised what they'd got.

        happy Monday
        now it's got a top class rugby team.
        What next? - a naval base? RAF squadron? SAS barracks?
        some bloody village.

            Dinner was more Nepalese left overs. The gift that keeps on giving. I was disappointed by the aubergine dish which was too greasy for me and not a flavour/texture combo that I enjoyed. Shame as aubergine is one of my favourite veggies.

            Ents, after faffing with my new TV set up, was Episode 1 of BBC Four - Africa's Great Civilisations, followed by TdF rest day highlights then Episode 2 of the aforementioned series. It's very interesting.

              I caught a bit while waiting for TdF highlights over the weekend. I was mightily confused as they were all in period dress and thought it was some Downton does Midsomer Murders mash up.

                Watching "The Diagnosis Detectives" and the US man's skin condition is making me itch and scratch.

                    If you have anything weird and can't get a proper diagnosis you should go on this program.

                      Ok so the US guy has chronic eczema but it hasn't been treated properly. Partly because he didn't know the NHS would treat him free, and partly because his doctors didn't him follow up properly.
