You got me! :-) The Odd Couple added to my watch list.

Regarding the photos, out of respect to Mrs Wilmott, I shall be content with my vivid imagination ;-)

Photographic evidence may or may not exist, but I did once perform on stage wearing a red dress and related accoutrements. I was part of a small group of young men that performed exactly once. We had written the song during Easter vacation while drunk. I think I was 17 at the time. But, importantly, I was actually sober during the performance, for our ski club season ending party. A family affair, of sorts. We called ourselves “The Pjolter Sisters”.

Didn't Cary Grant share a house with Randolph Scott?

I have fond memories of watching the late night showing of Pink Flamingos in Chelsea, NYC. Probably the best audience to watch that film with.

UK and EU strike trade deal; duty free sales set to return from 1 January but tax free set to be scrapped

What a shame; Bottles of Bushmills falling out of overhead lockers.

I suppose the days of middle class taking the camper van to France and loading up with wine are gone.

Enough already, Bezos. My app’s Amazon logo has changed colors. It’s now a bent black penis (as seen from underneath) on a “flesh”-colored background. What are you trying to tell us??? (We already knew he was left handed.)

They are called 'features'.

A general rule for all software version is

"Odd numbers good, even numbers bad" (with the exception of Windows 95),

Ask any developer/manager who rolls out these products.

e.g. the Chrome icn disappears again and again from Windows Start menu.
the issue seems to relate to admin privileges that is a massive headache on Windows.

Just got my new French passport friends. I'm feeling grumpy like never before. My next 10-year round of complaints is having a great start!
