Fresh bedding for me, love that smell.
Again, depends what you’ve watched them with
Freshly cut grass or bacon for me.
Freshly baked bread does it for me.
Interesting bit of news/stroke hearsay on Twitter about last night being so windy in the UK. The National Grid were able to produce so much electricity from renewables, that the overall cost of the electricity went into the negative, and to balance the grid they called upon EV and home battery owners to charge their cars and utilities. And effectively paid them to do it:

Of course, if we had masses of storage mega batteries we wouldn't need to take measures to balance the grid, or fire up coal power plants. We'd just charge up the batteries when there is an excess of power and use it when the power supply drops away, to balance out the grid. But it's nice to know now that unbeknown to the vast majority of the population, EV owners were quietly doing their bit.
Rise of Skywalker tickets booked!
For some light amusement listen to Jack Dee's introduction to this broadcast from Portsmouth.
I was involved in a game of Monopoly last night .
I could tell it was Monopoly from the word Go .
You been watching The Mandalorian?
It is only available on Disney +...but there are ways
It is excellent if you love your Star Wars
I stayed and listened to the whole broadcast. Very funny.
Do you have to use the force?
It’s the best thing on the radio by a million miles. I still miss Jeremy Hardy’s singing!
The lad has been
Well, apart from the odd drama series which excels, like the recent Middlemarch. And it isn't quite as good since dear old Humph died. But Jeremy Hardy was hilarious. I could listen to him for hours, wittering on, making his sharp but quiet, off-beat observations. Graeme Garden with Barry Cryer doing their Hamish and Dougal was just genius. And there's always Tim Brooke-Taylor who gives that link back to the Cambridge Footlights and The Goodies [along with Garden].
Did anyone watch 'Elizabeth is Missing' on the box last night?
What a brilliant performance from Glenda Jackson. Wasn't sure if it was my kind of thing when I read the preview but she has always been a favourite, and I am so pleased I watched it. Marvellous.
I like it a lot . Though not so much Without Humph , They don’t use the older people so much , understandably .
My fav radio programme is The Unbelievable Truth
Humph was a one-off, but Jack Dee fills most of the considerable gap he left, and some of the new generation are hilarious. Marcus Brigstocke and Rachel Parris are brilliant, but it’s great when at least one of the old ‘uns are on as well.
Just starting now!
