    Have a Nice Day.

    I gave up writing after doing my novel and a book of poetry. I'm currently dabbling in painting.

    Have a Nice Day.

    I did a similar thing for a few years - burning CDs on a Philips double CD recorder. I recorded synthesiser stuff on a small home studio setup. Designed and printed the CD inserts. I did around 100 different albums (my own compositions so no copyright problems) and sold them on Ebay. I managed...

    Have a Nice Day.

    Excellent ! - By the way, that "Print on Demand" system is not of very high quality. The result (that I've seen). is a flat kind of text that isn't terribly sharp, and the pages are edge-glued and tend to fall out easily. There may be better kinds around but I haven't seen them.

    I watched it on TV this evening ! - "Eva braun or black" always makes me chuckle.

    Have a Nice Day.

    I did look into it. The more copies you have printed, the cheaper they become, per copy. There's a system they use. I think it's called "Print on Demand". There's basically this enormously long machine, all loaded with paper and card. They plug your datastick into it, containing your manuscript...

    Have a Nice Day.

    There's very little material in existence from Hoffnung, unfortunately. Just his Oxford Union speech and the Charles Richardson interviews; also a very poor quality BBC monologue. Another snippet is from one of his concerts where he's talking about "The Art of Tuba" and "Punkt Contrapunkt"...

    Here's Gerrard Hoffnung's Charles Richardson interviews - (in two parts, both on youtube) - Part 1 Part 2 -

    Have a Nice Day.

    If you can get hold of his interviews with Charles Richardson, he says "My hair grows inwards now", when excusing his baldness. These interviews are available on Vinyl..... and hopefully these days, also on CD.

    Have a Nice Day.

    Growing inwards. Could your remark indicate that you are a Gerrard Hoffnung fan ?

    Yes, I agree, definitely ! - The incident with the spray can in the van, and later, in the street, was brilliant !

    Love him in that scene with Nora in the sidecar being tailgated by the van. Was it "Enter the Phantom" ?

    There's many species, and variations on the standard mosquito model. Down here we have the "Blandford Fly". I'm not certain if it bites, but I believe it sits around the eyes of cattle and make their lives a misery.

    Auntie comes up trumps

    Remember "The World at War" ? - Watching the entire series, I seriously began to wonder if the real world actually WAS black and white in those days.

    When/why did Clegg become phobic towards women?

    A couple of my favourite Clegggisms. I won't spoil it by quoting the episode titles, but - first, He replies to Foggy's statement about having to smile whilst hypnotising someone. Foggy says - "Am I a genius of what ?" (or words to that effect). Clegg replies - "Not only a genius, but a genius...

    It's Never 10 Years....It Is

    Well done to you all. This forum is thriving ! - A different story from the other forum I used to belong to - The Ivor cutler forum. When he died the forum sadly dwindled away. I wonder if there are any other Ivor Cutler fans out there....... And Gerrard Hoffnung is another favourite.

    If Clegg Died Before Compo...

    That episode was pre-Truly. It was Compo who pointed the "Black widow" towards Smiler, but she walked straight past him to Foggy. One of my personal favourite episodes.

    If Clegg Died Before Compo...

    Possibly another encounter in a lift that this time would prove too much for poor Cleggy.

    Why is Big Day at Dream Acres so bad?

    Fully agree with the entire collection of comments........ The tramp character of totally unlikeable. It's an episode I have only watched a couple of times, for me, saved only by the slapstick wrecking of the house by the donkey. The same house has appeared in several other episodes, such as...

    British TV in the 1970s was such a small world!

    Brazil is, I reckon, a much neglected movie. Quite disturbing, but at the same time, very funny.

    Who's looking after the cafe? Episode

    Way back, when I was a postman, I remember the toilet paper in the post office depot had "Property of Her Majesty's government" printed on the edge of every sheet. I used to joke that we should post all the used paper back to them. I'm pretty sure it was Izal paper; most unforgiving.
