Breakfast and mugs of Bremen were reflected in the window...

At lunchtime, a trawl around the shops at Dalry - this at the Sally Army for a quid (£66 on Amazon)...

I have it already but what's the difference...

A second CD with 11 extra tracks all told...

Aparently, Twitter avieses, Asia's second LP, Alpha, was released this day in 1983...

Sure enough, here it is in my diary for that year, nestiling alongside Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Howard Devoto, Robin Scott of M fame and The Dead Kennedys...

Took me a week or so to buy it and, three years later it became my 33rd CD purchase...

31st actually as I'd counted "The Wall" and "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" as two CDs each...


Another excellent chilli from the Exec Producer for tea...

On telly, two episodes of "Two Broke Girls" and two episodes of new thing "Wasted" which was very good, in a childish sort of way - which I like...

An old "Yes Minister" and slightly earlier to bed...

Highlight of the Day : Anne's tasty chilli...
