Jerry Lewis

Remembering when I watched Jerry Lewis in a 60s film and laughed so much and so carelessly that I ached. Intensifies the sadness in hearing he has gone.

Neil Armstrong 1969

In a world where the word ‘hero’ has become devalued we need look no further than a man who accomplished so much and remained so modest.

Inspiration to millions and to me.

“For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.” Statement from the family of Neil Armstrong

Bye bye luvvy

Viva Hooky Street

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011
Mr John Sullivan, ace comedy writer and author of Only Fools and Horses – possibly the funniest ever British TV comedy – has sadly died all too young.
He wrote and sang the theme song for OFH.

Here is the end song performed.

Here are the lyrics.

We’ve got some half price cracked ice and miles and miles of carpet tiles, T.V.s, deep freeze and David Bowie L.P.s,
Ball games, gold chains, whatsnames, pictures frames and leather goods, And Trevor Francis track suits from a mush in Shepherds Bush, Bush, bush, bush, bush, bush, bush, bush …
No income tax, no V.A.T., No money back, no guarantee, Black or white, rich or poor, We’ll cut prices at a stroke……
God bless Hooky Street, Viva Hooky Street, Long live Hooky Street, C’est magnifique, Hooky Street, Magnifique, Hooky Street,
Hooky Street (to fade)

The Memories of John Sullivan’s work will never fade for me.

Lovely jubbly.
