      "The Magnificent Seven (1960) with that Yul Brynner chap, Charley Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Steve McQueen, and Eli Wallach.

      Now watching "Secret Scotland" with Susan Calman.

      Turns out the rifles of the Atholl Highlanders are Lee-Metford which explains why they don't look like the SMLE.
      When the fun stops, STOP.

        Tea tonight has been a pie made with the shin of beef and concomitant gravy I cooked this afternoon, with chips and peas. Very nice it was

        Though thinking through the time it took, it probably makes as much sense, if not more, to just buy a Pukka Pie and be done with it

        But it did turn out very nicely, and there's a second one that'll make for one or two nice cold lunches

          Yesterday we were able to order a glass of wine and take it to our room. Today we are told the hotel cannot sell any alcohol after 8 pm.

          But we did have a very lovely dinner out. HWMBO had goat stewed in red wine and I had pork cheeks. Both slow cook dishes where the meat just falls apart. Delish!

            A new series of WILTY?. I hope my iPlayer app has downloaded it for when I get home.

                Bedford is in the Milton Keynes postcode area, but Bedford is not in Milton Keynes.

                Postcode prefixes are vague and arbitrary symbols of the way the GPO envisaged postal deliveries might henceforth be arranged in the 1960s; an epiphenomenon of a lost age when logistics were structured around fifty-year plans of urban development rather than instant re-routing when a bus and a taxi cause a twenty minute holdup when they bump into each other at a roundabout.

                Meanwhile, independent of any form of centrally directed planning or appellation, In Slough continues to be In Slough

                  Tonight's major motion picture premiere was Gangs of New York, but I was an hour and ten minutes into it with much more than that to go and it felt like it hadn't even got started yet, so I assumed it wasn't going to and packed it in. Waste of time. I can't even be arsed to look up the IMDb link

                  So I decided to rewatch Armageddon (1998) instead; at least I know that's worth watching, and indeed it was

                  And as I was then in full-on rewatch mode, I rewatched Atomic Blonde (2017). It's probably not that long since I last rewatched it, but so what? At least it wasn't Gangs of New York, and it's my telly so I'll watch what I please

                  Goodnight all

                    Ramblings this morning with Anita Rani. Really interesting, and I'll enjoy reading her book when it's published.
