Getting one of those automatically generated e-mails from Facebook saying "You have pending notifications." and replying with "F*** off Facebook!!!" grin I know the e-mail address they use is a "noreply" one, so probably nobody will see my message, but it gave me immense satisfaction anyway. smiley

Funnily enough, at the time I really liked The Hurting, especially Mad World and the other singles. Whilst I liked Shout, I found - and still find - Everybody Wants To Rule The World to be one of the most irritating and annoying songs ever. undecided Hence Songs From The Big Chair almost completely passed me by. Earlier today I listened to The Hurting (via Spotify) for the first time in about 25 years and was very disappointed by it. Oh well...


Couldn't stand Everybody Wants to Rule the World either! Loved The Working Hour though, that was fantastic! Sowing the Seeds of Love had a few good tracks on, e.g. The Year of the Knife, Woman in Chains, Advice for the Young at Heart, Standing on the Corner of the Third World and more! Must get it out and play it again!

Remember back in the 70s when it was safe to leave a baby in a pram outside the shop while you went in? (Not that I was old enough then!) I heard of someone doing that and going home without the baby, going back a few hours later and it was still there!

My mum did that with me back when I was in a pram. She was back in 15 minutes though, not hours! Hasn't affected me "twitch" smiley

Royal Ascot (the horse racing, for those of you outside the UK!) starts today, and my route from home to work takes me close to Ascot.

There is a road which gets a lot more traffic than usual during Ascot week, and the residents of that road have taken to making scarecrows which are displayed outside their properties. Collections are taken for local charities.

Horse and jockey scarecrows are an obvious and popular theme but I have seen ones of the Royal Family too (given we're not that far from Windsor either).

Some are a bit ropey but others look great and a lot of work has obviously gone into some of them, and it always makes me smile as I drive down that road. cheesy

What made it doubly bad was that it was re-released a few years later as a charity record (Sport Relief huh) with the word "rule" replaced with "run"! angry grin wink
