Tuesday eh?  Nearly the weekend again already!

Dark rising...

Self portrait, of sorts...

Another eggy breakfast...

A visit from Fang...

...who stayed for a wee while...

...and enjoyed the fire...

Soundtrack this morning was the updated line up for this week's podcast...

It had changed quite a bit since this first draft, due to "new stuff"...

Out Thursday but catch up here...

Also, my 100 nominated 1982 LPs re the latest fortnightly poll have now been further whittled to 20...

They will be further honed to 10 and, finally, the (my) Top 5...

At lunchtime, we finished off the 3rd and final series of Ricky Gervais' "After Life"...

I definitely had something in my eye...

And so, this afternoon, I lined up a playlist of the four hours of music comprising the soundtrack to the three series...

The final episode of season 3 was especially wonderful. Joni Mitchell's orchestral version of "Both Sides Now" will close out this week's podcast as it did this final, life affirming episode....

I loved it!

In the evening, took Anne and her mum to close to Tynecastle for tonight's 2-0 win against St Johnstone...

Back home, I watched “Ad Astra”...

I had been looking forward to seeing this for quite some time...


Very disappointing indeed. Let’s just say it’s no “Interstellar”....

The score is good though, I’ll give it that…

"Holby City" enjoyed on Anne's return...

Highlight of the Day : After Life...
