    Dear Mat, London theatre is really thriving but I don't know how long this will last. I don't go much to the fringe because of transport problems, but I try to see those new plays that get transferred to the West End. Quite a few are two ...

    Dear Matt, It is a pity that so msny jobs have gone in local councils. Park cleaners etc. I always thought these jobs were pure Kenynsian economics. They don't pay well but you don't takee the job home with you. I was talking to a woman at ...

    Hedy Lamarr. A biography of Hedy is doing the rounds. but I would wait and watch it on TV. Hedy Lamarr complained that it was the world's opinion that she didn't have a brain. I always thought Betty Boop was the model for Snow White, It was Hedy. ...

    Blimey Purple, I think you must be tribe. I was South coast too until the grand departure to a different climate zone, although it is more Saxon than Norman up here which is the bonus - 'cept I'm still talking Norman - although I did do my job ...

    Mat , Oooer, I will be in trouble when the brain drain really begins to suck away at things in Ernest . I'm on the south coast almost at the sea shore so I am able to dabble my toes and walk the imaginary dog along the beach at present ...

    Well Daisy, sometimes I think it should be a big one. I might actually be a big dog kind of person. It'd be a shame to buy a Jack Russell, lusting over the Alsatians, we'd probably both make spectacles of ourselves. No, and thank you for your ...

    Matt, you need a dog. It doesn't have to be a big one. I miss walking with mine. I can't see the point of walking alone. I've tried to go out as I used to when he was around but it never feels the same. I could perch on a beach groin and watch and ...

    You're very brave Mike, I do admire your trips into town, up to the National and your enthusiasm for culture. I'm on the precipice with Radio 3. Now that I've learned all the names in The Archers, it does seem a shame to leave the place. I sent ...

    Hi Mat. A brain drain to the North eh? Could be a good thing and benefit me as I'm already in the north so I don't have to move, with the extra bonus of my brain having been drained some years ago. I enjoy walks with no given destination, as I tend ...

    Matt, You are right about London. It can be a very lonely place. I went to two concerts, two musicals and a play last week, I go because I am not on my own. This was all for the price of a ticket to a football match or as concert by ...

    Thanks for that, my darling! I often wondered how it happened. I salute your utter magnificence, illustrious commander of the prose skies! Emperor of the subtle put-down, king of all you survey! I bow down before you, mighty Mat-ery, hoping one day you may deign to trample my excuse for a brain under your golden jackboot! All hail, Prince of Princes, Writer & Earth Mover of the other sort.

    Finally...found the Wall...yes NBA...look in the 'comments section' - to find my story - scrolling past the comments of my 'single reader' - the blogger's curse, always I have one reader, and she wants my address to send me a Xmas present. If I say no I'll have NO readers..

    Loved your November comp entry. A grizzly one with a wonderful witty twist. That's set the bar high for the rest of us!
