  1. Oh well,Mr Hosie has his very own form of independence.No wife,no job. Is it not all about sex rather than ego?
  2. Too true Harper,and as iv'e said before no-one is dishonest in one wee corner of their life..it pervades everything they do.This is of particular importance to us,as these publicly funded and elected politicians are meant to be role models.Perhaps a little bromide in their expenses trough or fine Chablis in the "honourable members" heavily subsidised restaurants might dampen their ardour.I see the lady in question "broke cover" yesterday as bold as brass and facing off the cameras.These people are shameless and hard as nails,so I am not quite sure what measures would get them to modify their behaviours. Last but not least,can you imagine how their offspring must be damaged by all this? What a bunch of absolute chancers.
  3. Yeah,she sure looks a sweetheart.Can't she get a man of her own,or is the old forbidden fruit more attractive,or perhaps she just likes collecting hotel size miniature shampoos and shower gels.Of course it takes two to tango,and with regards expenses,was the rate bed and one breakfast at the taxpayers expenses,because it's always so much easier to spend someone else's money? It's the small details that count isn't it,not to mention the distraught wives and families?
  4. Yes,only 62."Life is uncertain.Eat the dessert first."
  5. I love it. I've got relatives just like that.
  6. I was so sorry to hear of her death today. She made me laugh out loud at some of her sketches.Clever,funny and observant,she was a marvelous comic writer and performer. My own fave. is the sketch she wrote for Julie Walters playing a geriatric waitress carrying 2 plates of soup across the dining room to two guests.
  7. I've stopped listening to B.B.C.news anymore.Have a look at Russia Today (RT) channel 135,and you will see and hear stuff that will curl your hair,and will never reach any of the news channels here.
  8. I think Corky may not be dead after all...just saying.
  9. God bless Madge.Oh,and Cher too come to that.They both need to get into summer season in Blackpool or Bridlington or somewhere,coz they are gonna get a chill on their kidneys with those costumes in those drafty arenas.
  10. Happy Christmas Miss Veronica.Adele? Undoubtedly talented,but the voice goes on and on.I can't bear listening to her for more than one rendition.It's too harsh.To me,and it is absolutely subjective,I find her pretence at being Mrs Ordinary, with the merchant banker husband,who just came in from Lidle and wrote a few songs,just too phoney. As Phil Collins said of her,"She's a slippery little fish" It's like that professional Bow Bells Mockney actor Ray Winstone.All 3 grand Saville Row suits,and diamond geezer credentials.But not really,and not recently. Kylie?She is long past her thinly spread best.Her very expensively ticketed shows consist of her singing a line,walking a few steps,posing,and then repeating this 'til the song is finished,whilst all the time being surrounded by frenzied,be-sequined dancers,and strongly voiced backing singers filling the void. Bah humbug,or maybe my age or just the way I am feeling.
  11. If what I read on the internet is true,then Katy and Anton might very well be! Seems a nice lady.
  12. Can't stand her or her voice.
  13. The judges and hosts kept going on about how fabulous Vine was,but in truth he was awful,and I am glad the ego has finally landed. Yes, that charleston was was sensational,and what trust to have in your dance partner to allow them to throw you about like that,and land safely! Still not sure who will win.
  14. Was at the Concert Hall last night to see and hear the John Wilson orchestra on their annual tour date.He was playing Gershwin ,and it was absolutely magical.This likeable,geeky young man from Newcasle,has brought,note by note,the movie scores of the countless songs of the greats like the Gershwin's,Rodgers and Hammerstein etc.etc.to todays' audiences.The hall was a sell out, as it is every year wherever he goes,and it was the quickest,most joyous two and a half hours.It caters for a neglected,and much overlooked audience of a certain age.Older ladies and gents,all neat as pins, with highly polished shoes,and mostly all "well sorted" and enjoying a Bacardi and coke pre show.The lyrics of these songs were lovely,and clever and poetic,and the two vocalists with the orchestra knocked their sox off with their renditions.Can you tell I liked it? ,
  15. I loved the boys' voice who sang with them.Was it Colin Bluntstone.
  16. "Well no-one told me about her"....iv'e only got to hear that line from their song,and I am transported back to that era.They were quite different from their contemporaries as I remember.
  17. Hi Pat, not the first two anyway,and the Bond film isn't half getting hyped so it better be good. Isn't Mr Craig awfully po faced,and doesn't he take himself oh so seriously,crappy interviewers not withstanding.He should be grateful for the cash and the fame.After he did his first Bond outing,it gave him the clout to do a film for a director pal,I saw it,and it was beyond awful.I think he's not half as good as he thinks he is, he should hold on to that franchise as long as poss,the effects,the Saville Row suits,the gorgeous co-stars, the whole publicity machine,and shut up.Connery was the best,and Golfinger my all time fave.
  18. Oh! I thought it was Tiny Bubbles,as rendered by Ayrshires' other bard,Sidney Devine....but thanks for clearing that up.
  19. 'Nuff said Miss Harper.Isn't it funny how a search for a" missing woman" has taken legs,and sturdy ones at that,and walked onto the rugby pitch!
  20. Oh Miss Harper,I can never give up the sequins.Sparkle is in my very d.n.a. Yes,Sam seems to be talking in tongues........
  21. Well Miss Harper,the good news is,there's to be a post rugby world cup help line set up.Various therapies to be used,and I will txt you the number.There's been a whole lot happening out there in the world while you've been incapacitated,but fear not,iv'e kept you all my back copies of the Daily Mail so you get a balanced view.And remember to deflate your rugby ball,just a little every day,and when it's finally flat,and using your visualisation techniques,you should be back in the room again.Good luck,and welcome back into the light.
  22. It is a hard one to call this year Pat.Usually someone is streets ahead of the others,but there's about half a dozen goodies this year.I think Daniel O'Donnel is funny.He is so earnest,and not very good...but a trier,and god loves a trier.Be good if Anton won after years in the wilderness dragging no-hopers round the parquet.
  23. Yes,I remember him too.I think his son became a hairdresser and took over the business at one time.
  24. I used to go to the St Enochs' hotel in the '60s.It was a bit on the faded grandeur side by then,but it's a tragedy it was demolished as the workmanship inside and out was lovely. The row of shops below was very nice, and if you look there is a hairdressers called Beti,and the eponymous Beti Reilley,hairstylist, is still going strong in Bath St.,looking just as glam. as she did in those days.She is probably the last legendary stylists from those times still working.
  25. Oh Miss Harper,too much information.I've heard the saying "Get a room",but" Get a stadium" is 30 men and a funny shaped ball too many for a honeymoon girl.Anyway,glad you are back in time for "Strictly". Steady Miss Veron,you can almost smell the liniment through the screen.
