A real comedy legend. If you haven't seen it, check out Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid with Steve Martin. Brilliant.
I have seen it, and will have to dig the DVD out. As you say, brilliant. I wonder if they are still out of whack?

Maybe he can strike a deal with his pal Donald, and get a two for one, when AF1 gets its new livery.

does anyone else think that the devolved UK assemblies' attitudes towards the UK (England) approach to the crisis is in part a protest at having been told to STFU over Brexit?
No, because they are basing their actions on what is relevant to their locations, not what is happening in London.

On another note, let's hope POTUS doesn't prove to have been right - or actually maybe we should hope he is because it could be a game changer. Trump is a gobsh**e who will say anything to anyone to appeal to their views. Unfortunately he says so much, that sometimes something he says, is true, or ...

Well Boris says we should all go back to work if you can avoid using public transport, so assuming most bases are out of the way and most of us use cars, why don't you all head off back to work?

Scottish Borders

Damn, missed a C5 that must have gone over the house this morning, judging by its ADSB track. This is ZH101 that is currently going round in circles in the NE England/SE Scotland. This is what passes for aviation thrills round here these days. Haven't even got the civvy stuff going into Edinburgh to...

Nice catch. I'm keeping an eye on adsb for anything like that over the Borders, but no luck yet. :sad:

My best one was way back in the days of slide film, when I got 2 KC10's towing 6 German Phantoms, heading to the states. :smile:

I'm sorry but to suggest that someone on even £20k a week (and let's face it, that's no premier League players) couldn't take a 20% cut in their wages is nonsense, whatever else they do with their money.

No new DVD's in my local Sainsbury's today. Usually the new releases come out on a Monday. Hope the film companies aren't holding back the release of movies to DVD.

Re reading Conn Iggulden's trilogy, based on Genghis Khan, and half way through the second book, "Lords Of The Bow". Nothing like a bit of blood, guts and savagery to settle you down before you drop of to sleep. :grin:
