Green bottles beginning to slip: Bank of England, HSBC, G4S; and now It’s ‘news’ that cross-generational patterns of parenting exist ..wise up, world, we spyches are well on to that. BBC Today programme asks if it should abandon racing tips – and conform to some new norm? surely not .. long live nonsense!
On course : lots of winners, wrong combinations .. No Nobby, no Duffer .. Mr and Mrs Tophat rubbed out at bridge; black dog happy – spyche remembers, then goes home
Marigold gets sad knock back, Deed sums up, Settings ‘offs’ target. Not-so-Quickly moves on – spyche turns pots, turns tables – and, hello, freedom ..no ‘foreign domination or despotic government’ Let’s dance!
