    One of my favourite films of all time, JAWS. Must have watched it 20+ times at least.

    Spielberg made the movie and I suspect the book wasn't a patch on it. Bit disappointed with his latest offering, Munich. Didn't think it was up to his usual standard.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Peter Benchley was a good writer. His father Robert Benchley was even better. Had to do a piece of prose by him for one of the State Exams.
    "Down With Pigeons" it was very funny!

    Dennis Weaver has passed on. Any of you oldies may remember him as 'McCloud'. Used to watch that as a young lad.

    Did you ever notice that in every painting of Adam & Eve, they have belly buttons. Think about that...take as long as you want.

    Just a year older than me

    I remember him in a kids thing called HR Puffnstuff.
    He was also in a bloody awful film with Dana in the 70s set in Ireland wasn't he? Had a name like Call of the Wild - something like that. Shocking load of merde.

    All the smoking and boozing resulted in oral cancer and he had to have his tongue cut off.Yikes.

    Yes Jack Wild. As an aside he was in serious financial trouble and Mark Lester who played Oliver and is now I believe a medical practitioner helped pay for some of his cancer treatment.

    Yeah 12th man - that's the film I was trying to remember.

    Sometimes shown on telly on Sunday afternoons when there's no sport on.

    Reminds me of that awful Finian's Rainbow with Tommy Steel, Petula Clarke and Fred Astaire doing brutal Irish acccents. Yuk!

    "How are things in Glocamara" - one of the most awful "songs" every written. How I hate that song. Only a matter of time before Westlife or Daniel O'Donnel do their version of it.

    Ronnie Barker had a memorial today. I loved Open All Hours & The Two Ronnies, never really got Porridge though.

    RIP

    Yo te quiero, mi querida. Sin tus besos, yo soy nada.

    Abri o portão de ouro, da maquina do tempo.

    Mi mamá me hizo guapo, listo y antimadridista.
