The Past

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

Weakest Link ...

It is the 10th anniversary of the Weakest Link with Anne Robinson - gosh is it that long !!

Tonight the very first episode was shown again on TV.

How things have changed - dumbed down and made very chatty since that first episode.

No friendly chats about the contestant's love life - what the student is studying - what a boring job the contestant does - who bought that colourful shirt.

No asking contestants to sing either.

The first episode was carried out at breakneck speed and no quarter was given for half answered questions.

No easy questions for the first round.

How things have changed and I must admit the current style of show is far more enjoyable - so there...


Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

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?
