The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

April 1st - an action day

April 1st saw us not only attending the Senior Screen Cinema but eating at Frankie and Benny's - a UK chain of New York Italian Restaurants - American/British 1950's style.

Very nice meal BUT they do not take cash - only cards - to us oldies this seems very strange . No doubt some Marketing expert decided that this was the way forward.

The film was by the way A Bunch of Amateurs with Burt Reynolds playing a faded film star who gets tricked into playing King Lear in an amateur production in Suffolk, England.

A very funny film -   Imelda Staunton,Derek Jacobi and Samantha Bond co-starred .

Worth watching.

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
