I knew you were a Witch. Did you know Macbeth?

There is certainly a Macbeth connection.

The shop at which Brio bought her crystal ball is right next door to the Bank o' Scotland.

Macbeth! Bank o' Scotland! Do you get it? Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud .

I'm watching one of those "when things go wrong for celebs" countdown Sunday night fodder shows and it just mentioned the time Esther Rantzen was arrested and amazingly convicted of a criminal offence while interviewing members of the public. A PC took exception to her told her she was creating an obstruction and told her to move on. She moved to another area with plenty of space and he approached her again and arrested her. She was convicted and it makes me wonder if it was a miscarriage of justice. Incredible how she could be convicted even with clear video evidence but maybe back then the law was you do what a copper says and you do it fast.

Esther looks like a bit of a goer back then. Phoar!

That'll Be The Day, very different film to American Graffiti, both about early rock n roll culture and released the same year. Both brilliant, TBTD is far grittier and shows rock stars can act a bit too, natural performers. Keith Moon stole it with a barely two minute cameo and a drum solo to knock your hat off. Wasn't he good. :) Such a character, I'll always remember an SNL sketch he did with Steve Martin I think it was where he was in the background casually throwing a TV out of the window, like he did.

"Obstruction of the Highway" is a very useful tool in a policeman's armoury against any pedestrian or motorist that he wants to be somewhere other than where they are.

Essentially, if you're standing still or you've parked your car on a public highway, no matter how much space there is around you the fact that another person or motorist cannot pass over the space you're occupying makes you guilty of obstruction.

Ridiculous? Of course, it is!

It's a very easy charge for a policeman to bring against you and it's almost impossible for you to defend yourself against it.

The answer? Whether you're on foot or in your car - keep moving! Laughing out loud

She wasn't mature in 1981. She looked like a youthful, festival going hippy.

But yes mature is fine as well. Not fussed really.

'Why are our politicians so crap?' Jeremy Paxman is my hero - he doesn't mince his words.

I'm watching the last part of the Handmaid's Tale. Reminds me of the Sound of Music.

Saw the last half of Celebrity Master Chef.

Who knew Razor Ruddock would make such a creative chef when he was such a destructive footballer?
