    RIP Nikki Lauda

    Indeed. I listened to Sir Jackie Stewart this morning on Radio 4. As always Sir Jackie was well worth listening to and gave a most moving and heartfelt tribute. He described just how much pain Nikki Lauder was in when he drove again almost unbelievably only 6 weeks after his accident. Beggars belief really.

    Squash

    I'm 63 and still going strong, once a week come what may. Still pretty crap but it gets me out of the house. The oldest guy in our group is 73 and he's amazing, can't get around the court so well these days but his racquet skills and shot selection are still spot on. Seems to me the sport is dying a slow death though. When our generation pack it in I don't see many youngsters playing and coming through, not based on my local sports centre anyway. A crying shame, it's a great game. .

    Horse Racing

    Had a wonderful day last Thursday at York for the Dante meeting. Went last year for the same meeting too. Up in the Melrose Suite, watching the racing and having Yorkshire Tapas served throughout the day. To cap it off I backed the winner in the Dante Stakes at 8/1 (Telecaster), and also a nice E/W bet at 33/1 that only got pipped at the post by about half a length. York and The Grand National are the only days I have a bet on the horses, I know bugger all about the nags and tend to look at names (hence backing Telecaster). .

    What films have you watched this week

    Not a film as such but I've been binge watching The Sopranos on Now TV, series 4 to 6, only got 3 episodes to go. Phew! I watched series 1- 3 last year on Now TV but then they took it off, and once GOT had finished I cancelled NOW. On the return of GOT this year I got NOW back and saw that The Sopranos was back on so I've been feasting on that for the last couple of wks. Compelling stuff though none of the characters are what you would call exactly loveable! I never watched it when it originally came out but I'm glad I've made the effort now.

    What films have you watched this week

    I agree wholeheartedly. Everyone likes a good courtroom drama don't they, and this is one of the best. Paul Newman as the "ambulance chasing" lawyer is superb. Plus any film that features the great James Mason is a winner in my book.

    A frank seller!

    My wife bought a watch in Turkey years ago for a fiver. It was supposedly a Cartier watch but actually said Carter on the face To be fair she got 12 months out of it until it packed in.

    Cheapo Chinese DAC testing results...

    I'm pretty sure I bought it last year and it has proved to be a great buy. For the money they are incredible value.
  11. On CD... O.R.k. - Ramagehead All being well I'll be going to see O.R.k. in a couple of months time when they are supporting The Pineapple Thief. That sounds like a cracking double bill to me. .
  12. I've got three of his 90's solo albums, Truth and Beauty, Like a Rock, and Merseybeast. They are really good, in fact Like a Rock was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 1994. I can't imagine why I've never seen him live because I would guess he's great value and very entertaining. .
