Switch on the Northern Lights, we’ll deal with the rest

It’s not often I’m given cause to count my blessings and find I have more than Joanna Lumley. Smug – and happily so. No other word for it. Not so posh, not so old, not so anxious for another Ab Fab Christmas special to put a turkey on the table, not so bound up by all that bothersome London stuff. And then there’s the bother of travel.

Skinny dipping for charity? Just put your money in a tin

In a conspiratorial whisper, she made me promise never to reveal her secret to her daughter. Goodness knows why – she was going to reveal everything else to all and sundry, without a qualm.

Not a lifeline. It’s off the hook Vince

Nice guy and everything, but hasn’t Vince Cable just managed to confirm that the transgressing banks are now well and truly off the hook?

UK's don’t ask, don’t tell policy

annesept25 Nobody suspected she was pregnant – least of all, the mother herself. So, when a British servicewoman gave birth to a baby boy at Camp Bastion on Afghanistan’s frontline, the ensuing furore was almost comical in its spinning, screaming chaos. (1 comment)

It ended in tears last time, let’s not go there again

America’s answer to the Leveson Inquiry

jeffdaniels159 There were so many loose ends to tie in the finale of The Newsroom (Sky Atlantic), it’s amazing it didn’t come with a free knitting pattern.

A host of golden daffodils, too many to tweet about

I wonder if William ever stopped to ask his sister Dorothy: “Hey, Dot – how much do you reckon a word’s worth?” He being a master of poetic artistry and she his constant, as close – some say too close – support and encourager, both must have had a passion for language.
