I've not had my ear to the ground regarding space telescopes lately
at 14:30 14 Oct 2021

Or even my eye on the horizon...or above the horizon, so this news item is a welcome surprise:

Let's hope that it has less teething troubles than Hubble, the prospects for increasing knowledge are very significant.

A half of two halves
at 09:46 12 Oct 2021

Nice turn of phrase from Phil in the Shrewsbury match report but it also reminded me of when, many years ago, you were in the pub and a round was being got in but you hadn't quite finished your drink. So you would offer your glass with a third of a pint in it and say 'I'll just have a half in that'...of course not hoping at all that it would come back full to the brim.

So Phil's report says Jon Walters was at the game last night

Been retired two and a half years now, was always one of the more savvy players and a Scouse connection too (does the Wirral count as Scouse?) Am I putting two and two together and coming up with five to suggest that there is an interesting candidate for Assistant Manager?

But Boris Johnson does appear to be contradicting his own Business Secretary, and his former Brexit Secretary (although you would have thought that heading into a Winter of Discontent would be just the type of harking back to old times that a Leaver would approve of.)

Anyone else into 'Back to Life' on BBC iii / iPlayer?
at 09:02 20 Sep 2021

I enjoyed the first series when I caught up with it a couple of years ago and am wondering whether I just didn't cotton on to there a second series, whether the second series was made shortly after the first series and then release got delayed or whether they have only just made a second series (in which case I am very disappointed in Oscar for not starting a 'wear your mask' campaign.)

A good premise to undermine the sitcom comfort zone from and some fine turns from well known and not so well known actors.
