Since watching Bowie's 2000 Glastonbury performance the other night, I've had Life on Mars? going round my head. Thought I'd look up the lyrics, and all the sites I can find give: "Now the workers...

Anyone watching this? Beautifully acted and directed, though strange decision to do it in 12 half-hour episodes. Big career ahead for the two talented leads, I'd say. Great to see Trinity College,...

Great article by Roger McGough in today's Weekend i. He quotes his poem, written in the 60s: Everyday I think about dying, about plague, war, famine, global warming, the end of the world. It helps...

Just had an email to my Hotmail address from "British Gas" about "your outstanding bill". I have not opened it, but if I hover over it, it says it comes from my Hotmail address - the same one! How can...

Mentioned this elsewhere, but thought I'd open a separate thread. It's bin collection day in my village and they usually come by 10am, but no sign. There are usually 3 or 4 in the crew, but as they...
