In case anyone is interested, since it's the 40th anniversary, Radio 4 is airing a new series of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy at 6.30. It's based on And Another Thing... by Eoin Colfer and much of the original cast is returning.

A Lego Dimensions-inspired conversation about the lives of the Istari before they came to Middle Earth has led to my children jubilantly singing "What's the story in Valinor-y/ Wouldn't you like to know..." as they battle the Weeping Angels.  I have retreated to my sanctum sanctorum (shed) in despair at the riches we cast beneath the hooves of today's youth.

S'right,  but the core theme of Taytopark (crisps aside) is actually Wild West, not Oirish, 
 an off-the-shelf package of pre-fab log cabins and totem poles the irrepressible Ray Coyle built his salty empire around.

Yes, I was just trying to explain this to an English person last weekend.  Never been myself but I believe it's actually pretty good, so it is, so it is, to be sure to be sure.

Netflix has decided that I'm into Nazis. I don't know if I accidentally clicked on a programme at some time, but there's a documentary about Hitler in my 'continue watching' section that I've certainly never watched, and now it keeps suggesting other Nazi-themed programmes I might like. Very annoying!

Netflix is just reminding you that you have to give both sides a fair hearing, Dandontdare, that's free speech in a democracy.  Otherwise you're worse than, umm, Hitler.


My fingers are quite sore from a morning challenging the lies of anti-choicers on Irish social media, in my various guises.  I know it's pointless, but we've been here before: it ain't over 'til it's over.  My conclusion thus far is that the most pernicious modern narrative of all is that both sides are equally corrupt and dishonest, an internet koan that only ever benefits the side that are more so: usually promoting the cause that is already morally bankrupt.

But it's nice outside for once, so I think I might risk a break.
