Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

Date: 24th April 2012

I mentioned recently how I'm watching many old films, finding them better entertainment than so much on offer on Television main channels these days.  I don't have Sky - although if I did there are some channels I know I'd enjoy - Discovery, History and National Geographic.  It's is such a shame that one cannot subscribe to just a few of the Sky channels but I'm not interested in Sport nor the majority of the fare they offer.

Anyway, yesterday I watched The Magnificent Seven based on the story of the Seven Samurai.  It was absolutely stuffed with stars - most of whom, sadly, are now dead.  It was a very good adventure story and I was staggered to see that it was made over 50 years ago in 1960. Many years ago I happened to stand in a lift at Broadcasting House with Yul Brynner - quite a thrill and he was very charismatic.
