War! What is it good for?

Well, great tv plots actually, from Sharpe to Cybermen and from Cracker to The Sweeney, from Bond to Adam Adamant, and all points in between. Not to mention some cracking songs.

Damn weather. It thought it was Summer for a few days, then snapped back for a few frosty Spring mornings. Especially frosty when I had to get up early yesterday to water the garden: the hose was frozen again. Frosty too re the outdoor loos at work. Now I grew up with outdoor dunnies so I ain't no princess, but ice cold loo seats first thing in the morning are one bit of 70s nostalgia I could well do without.

There was a cartoon in one of the papers (sadly not online, or I'd throw you a link), but at least it made me feel like I wasn't the only Gen Xer to be tinged with a strange sort of Ostalgia for the Cold War. Happier times.
