    Evenin' all. Happy to report that I have found a South African white called Bruce Jack, but sad to hear that Dickie Betts has died aged 80.

    So it's happening...my hair is beginning to depart 😭😭😭

    Best wishes Legz, Mrs GOG bought a wig in anticipation of the baldy bits, but it merely thinned (and has never recovered). She's more than happy to accept her appearance and explain if anyone enquires. If people stare, stuff'em. "Wot you lookin' at?"

    The Fast Show

    Saw them at the Tyne Theatre: a cross between a chat show and a greatest hits package. We knew all the characters and catchphrases, and there was a poignant tribute to Caroline Aherne. Great stuff.

    Rewriting history. Not the first time this has happened, I'm sure. Interesting how both Houchen and Andy Street (West Midlands mayor) are now campaigning on their personal "record of delivery" rather than along Tory party lines.

    Drinking Adnams Broadside to dull the pain of selling my vinyl collection. Now I'll have to find this album on CD.

    Goodbye, I’m leaving this board

    Just back after a few days away (definitely NOT a flounce). Have I missed anything?

    That's reassuring. I remember trying to get into it many years ago and just found it beyond me. Too many in-jokes and irrelevant articles, but that was probably a reflection of my immaturity at the time.

    It's a pity she left it so late in the day after raising the deposit.

    Sheffield United starting next season with a points deduction if relegated.

    No doubt Wilder will complain that they did a job on him.

    Thanks to WeeMoby for keeping this thread going. It saves us all having to buy PE for the full story. Selfish, I know.

    Local pressure has an impact. It's even making the BBC website now - taking things away from the PR mouthpiece of the Gazette. This can only result in increased scrutiny. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c043ez484m4o
