    Here's a little-known song I rather like... "These Golden Years".

    FURRY FRIENDS... BUT NOT FERRETS

    Hi everyone, I am not a Facebook user, but my partner tells me that an indoor cat rehoming service named Deliverance is looking for a forever home for two felines... and their names are Compo and Nora Batty! Here is a link (for Facebook users) to the page.

    Who says the final few series aren't funny???

    Agreed - England, Emmanuelle and Columbus were indeed dreadful. By the way, I once had the pleasure of chatting with Jacki Piper, who lit up a few of the Carry Ons. She is absolutely delightful, very funny and totally genuine. Thought I'd drop that one in!

    Who says the final few series aren't funny???

    I find the later series to be every bit as enjoyable as the earlier ones. Sure, the line-up of characters has altered somewhat, but the writing remains top-drawer and the countryside is as beautiful as ever. I argue the same for the Carry On films; even fans say that the 70's entries are...

    THE AFTER-EFFECTS OF SUMMER WINE

    All things Summer Wine seem to be permanently embedded in my mind. A couple of days ago, when something went wrong at home, I found myself exclaiming "what the blood and stomach pills is going on?" Later, family discussion turned to ferrets and the strange fact that their poo stinks like nothing...

    The Book has Arrived

    Turns out it's gone down to £11.55. Came across a recording of my video chat with Tom Owen, possibly from a couple of years ago. So utterly weird seeing him like this, knowing he is no longer with us. Nice man, slightly reserved, but so likeable.

    The Book has Arrived

    Hi everyone. Just wanted to advise you that the price of my "50 Years of Last of the Summer Wine" will be falling later today... down to £11.99 or thereabouts, I believe. I'd like to think that I covered just about everything in the book, no stone unturned. Plus an array of photos, illustrations...

    LOOKEELIKEE

    Strangely enough, my family tell me that I'm a Compo lookalike... only more dishevelled and off-putting, I'm not convinced it's a compliment.

    LOOKEELIKEE

    We have, in our market town, a Foggy Dewhurst lookeelikee! Honestly, the resemblance is remarkable. Same clothes (including the cap), same height, same gait and a walking stick to boot. My son and I saw him as we climbed into our car before heading to the town centre. As we arrived - and to our...

    Carry On at 65

    I did, of course, mean "simple" word. Doh!

    Carry On at 65

    I vaguely recall that he talked about the suggestion of a new theatre in Harrow. Understandably, he was keen on the idea. I also remember him mentioning how people expected him and his co-stars to be as young as they were in the films. At that time I used buses and Shanks' pony to get about and...

    Carry On at 65

    I love most of the Carry Ons, but for me the ultimate is Carry On Girls. It is very funny and has a delightful British seaside atmosphere. Similarly, At Your Convenience has some evocative scenes of Brighton and stands out as a well-written and darn amusing movie to boot. I had the pleasure of...

    Agreed. A very good idea and thanks to Barry for suggesting it. What a fabulous community this is.

    New Book released today Update

    Hello good sir. No, I haven't got any book signings planned. With a face like mine, any potential purchasers would either run away screaming or faint on the spot. Happens to me every time I look in a mirror.

    New Book released today Update

    It's a re-written version of my first book. The layout is different, there are extra chapters, new interviews, different photos and illustrations. I think this updated version is better than the original. Not sure if links work, but just in case...
