Carnegie, Churchill, Jesus, Shakespeare, Plomley

If I could have been anybody who's ever existed I'd like to have been Roy Plomley.

He's the guy that invented Desert Island Discs, the British radio programme that been going for ever.

Thanks to one simple idea he managed to live an lifestyle that involved about six hours work a week, leaving him with enough time and money to do all the things he really wanted to do. After he died his wife lived off the royalties. And I dare say their children will too for as far ahead as most of us care to peer into the future.

Just one good idea. Why can't I think of something like that?

    Daylight Savings has had a significant impact upon my blogging activities. A few weeks ago we put our clocks backward forward an hour to get an extra hour of daylight over our upcoming Summer.

    Good god, is there no way to kill these spiders? Zap 'em, report 'em. Although they seem to turn up more the more you use the "'big Name', 'Big Name' and Me" headings: which means you must be doing something good!

  4. that's true, topher. I guess they spider for keywords or something.

    they don't bother me too much and who knows, one day I may need an instant road repair
