    All my life I've known that song, without really knowing the words. Were whichever of Rogers or Hammerstein that wrote the lyrics on acid or something?

    I believe it was written by Jim Morrison.
    Just like the stranglers "Don't bring Harry" and "Golden Brown" and Nazareth's "My white bicycle", it's all about drugs.

    watching the stranglers perform DBH on TOTP at 7.30pm was bizarre as JJ Burnel later admitted the BBC had no idea what was being sung.

    Harry and me we live in a dream
    With a friend like him I don't need enemies
    I don't know where morning is
    It might not come today
    That's the trouble when Harry's around
    He forces me to play
    I should have refused to meet this midnight cheat
    He likes to prey on my mind with his own special treat
    I don't know where morning comes
    It might not come today
    Harry likes to play all night
    I'll do what harry says
    Don't bring harry
    I don't need him around
    Don't bring harry
    I don't need him around
    Ah... you've met harry
    I can see by your eyes
    If once there was life there
    Now there's compromise
    Harry is a beast of luxury
    He just wants my body and soul leaves the bones behind
    Ah... you've met harry
    I can see by your eyes
    If once there was action
    Now there is no life
    Don't bring harry
    I don't need him around
    Don't bring harry
    I don't need him around

    Are you sure you've got that right? I've bought a quarter of hash before but it was always wrapped in cling film, never brown paper and strings.

    Back in the 60s when Jim penned it they didn't have cling film so had to make do with brown paper.

    Monday night football. They spend 95% of the time talking about teams (from the top 6) not playing that night. Tonight it’s all been about Man City.

    Don’t watch it then. Problem solved.

    The point is I want to watch the game, but I want the teams playing to be discussed, not just a top 6 love in. They literally gave Stoke and West Ham 5 minutes before kick off where they told us Arnautovic and Shaqiri were the key men, thanks for such wonderful insight.

    To be fair this time city had just won the title at the weekend. The rest of the time it's less forgivable

    You don't cross solid white lines. The first guy was impatient, (he came from lane 1 of the M25 into the slip road I was on before he made that move), the 2nd guy was incompetent. Nothing major but basic road rules being completely ignored. This is just normal behaviour these days but it gave me a chance to play with a bit of video editing software. I expect I'll get very good at it very quickly.

    Emily Atack.

    I haven’t the faintest ******* idea who she is, but the banner ad at the top of the Forum has been telling me that she is “now hated” for over two weeks and it has finally seeped into my consciousness.

    Yeah that's an idea! Anyone else on here use one?

    Radio guest interviews. Quite often I get in my car, turn on the radio and hear someone being interviewed. It might be quite interesting. Sometimes they even sing a song or two live in the studio, some of which I enjoy and think that I may download/buy some of their music when I have the chance. But then I'll listen for the next 20 minutes vainly trying to catch a name, or a clue, so I know who it is. Then at the end of the guest interview, they say "Thanks, it's been great" and I still don't know who the **** it was!

    B*gg*r!

    You're right mate. There are way better things than copper kettles.

    The whole facade of checking in for a flight yourself a day or two early. You almost always have to do it again when you get to the airport anyway, even if you’ve got a boarding pass saved to your phone at the very least you have to check in again at some sort of terminal and get a paper one printed. Or they produce one for you at the ‘bag drop’.

    Plastic in the Worlds oceans.

    The press write about this constantly as if the problem is coming from the UK, but I've yet to see the Thames looking like this:

    Now I'm not naive and am happy that we're all cutting back on the use of plastics, especially the small particles in use in cosmetics, but can someone have the guts to point to where the real problems lie here?

    Windows wifi drivers. I've battled all day with an intermittent wifi issue only to find out it was the lame driver Windows 10Pro installed as default. Even running the driver updater from the wifi device itself didn't load the correct one. And I can't even blame the 3rd world for this!

    I agree, everything we do helps, but I suspect that even if we were to stop all our plastics going in the sea, it would have only a marginal effect on the world's oceans.

    Just had Alan Titchmarsh on in the background with his "Love Your Garden" program. I don't dislike it, it is pleasant viewing if a bit over-sentimental sometimes. This evenings show was typical, a dear old couple of ladies in their 90's who havn't been able to use their garden for years, due to it's poor state. Sadly, it has taken so long to get their garden that, one old dear didn't live long enough to even get a few months of pleasure out the Alan's wonderful effort.

    But what I do hate is the 60-strong army of "friends and family" who turn up at the end of each program in their best frocks, suits and new hair-do's to get a free drink and nibbles and appear on the TV for a minute or two. Where have the selfish so and so's been for the past few years when the garden needed tending to?
