The trouble with posting links to the Telegraph is that I've exceeded my monthly quota of articles on their site, thanks exclusively to their excellent Rugby League coverage.

So here's a link for other people in the same situation as me.

Stan Stennett; well  known entertainer in Wales, not quite as well known elsewhere.

 

I remember him being interviewed about still working at eighty. He joked that performing was in his blood and when he had recently woken up in the middle of the night and opened the fridge to get a drink .... 'the light came on so I did a quick twenty minutes'

I do occasionally catch the odd episode on ITV4. It's so preposterously macho!

Now thinking about if The Professionals had been scripted by Mark Twain. That I'd like to see!

Who was Cowley? Was that Hudson from Upstairs Downstairs?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

Think I've posted before, but back 30 years ago just about, when I was a law student….

 

 

… the law lectures took place in the medical wing of the college for some reason.  While waiting for a lecture we peered into the dissection rooms  and low and behold, Gordon Jackson was being dissected.  He'd done the marvellous giving your body for research thing.

It was probably that what killed him later, as he only died 23 years ago

I'm a fool to myself with the bangers.

 

Nowt but shoulder meat with no added fat - makes for fantastic sausages but not great profits….

 

Over 450 packets sold already for next week.  A tidy business if anyone wants to take it over?
