Keith 'Vazeline' Vaz getting a six month suspension from being an MP.

Keith was my MP once! And on a related note, it's my current MP's birthday today. Happy Birthday Andrew Bridgen! By a long distance the best MP I've ever had. I think Tessa Jowell was probably the worst one.

Our local quiz league started up for the new season last night, and we had a new team member who was recommended by my neighbour, who is also in the team. He's 51, and was really good with a broad array of quiz knowledge. As a Brucie bonus as well, he turns out to be a RUSH fan. Finally nice to have someone in the team who knows what I'm on about when I mention RUSH 🙂.

Listening to Gilles Peterson this afternoon and heard a piece of music that knocked me sideways. This one, which I see has been uploaded to YouTube today.

My signed copy arrived on Friday.  It's good, but not quite as good as the 'record of the decade' that the media are purporting it to be.  Also, it's a piss poor recording - no definition or space at all - just one big sludgey wall of noise.  Dangermouse produced it - quite a big name - he must have no ears.  A shame, because the songs deserve better.

Seeing him next March, looking forward to it..
Anger is a gift.

I'm not a Royalist - far from it.  They should be disestablished at the very least.

But...

A friend of ours lives in Windsor as her husband is in the Household Cavalry. Every Wednesday she attends an Army Wives' Mother and Baby meeting.  It's been revealed that, at her last meeting two days ago, completely unannounced, and without any forewarning or fanfare, in walked Harry and Meghan for a casual chat  and coffee.

There's an article and video about it on the Forces TV website - I'm not sure it's been reported in the mainstream news.

I'm delighted for our friend more than anything else, hence this post, but I've got to say fair play to  that particular royal couple. 

And I never thought I'd state that.

Wills and Harry seem to be thoroughly good eggs. However, Meghan, I think, could be trouble.

New pair of headphones! Focal Elegia, to be exact. 😀

One of my nieces works doing something to do with horses, and the other week had the opportunity to go and meet The queen at one of her stables. She was showing me a couple of pics she had taken with her majesty, but was told that she wasn't allowed to put them online. Seemed strange to see them in the picture in their 'horsey' clothes.
