"Surely the BBC wouldn't dare 'cheat', surely, but is very bizarre how the dance of has been lately."

Wouldn't be too sure about that and for what it's worth, I too find something strange about this pattern of 'one good dancer & one dud' occurring so often......I would certainly like to see the number of viewers votes registered for Scott, especially given the shortfall of judges marks.

Tim Wonnacott? This week, next week, it doesn't really matter.

Jake is undoubtedly a talented dancer, but oh dear, finding nice things to say about him doesn't come easy, as I find something of the night about his appearance.

Frank....reminds me of a tale I heard a long time ago: Young boy-racer in a souped-up mini and a elderly gent in a Bentley were vying for the same parking place.

The boy racer zipped smartly into the parking space & with a smug grin said 'you have to young & quick to do that'.

The gent in the Bentley did no more than drive with some force straight into the mini, completely writing it off....the elderly man got out of his car, rubbed his hands and said 'you need to be very old & rich to do that'.

The three girl frontrunners (Frankie, Pixie & Caroline) did really well again tonight. I totally disagree with the judges about Pixie's dance....I thought it was quite beautiful, although probably Caroline (again) was the best on the night.

Probably Scott & Tim in the dance-off, with Scott going home. Scott's performance reminded me of that old Eric Morecambe gag 'I'm playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order' ....substitute notes for steps.  

Finally, I think Brendan Cole should lose a little weight.

Runny, I didn't think David had the same photo    I thought he'd just turned yours the right way up  

Morning, KEF.....you're quite right of course, but in fairness to Rb I didn't add any comment.

So sorry, KEF.....didn't comment on your pics.  Lovely flowers, especially the fuchsia.

Yes, Runnybeak, I'm between Lichfield & Stafford.....edges of Cannock Chase.

Now here's a thing: I bought a new gas cooker from my local high-street dealer about three weeks ago ( I like to buy locally for some things) and I'm not happy with certain aspects of it.

Only used the grill twice, first time it took nearly half an hour to brown a shepherds pie (on full) and yesterday it took nearly fifteen minutes to melt cheese (on toast). This is in addition to the oven being far too hot relevant to its setting.

So today I contacted the manufacturers pointing out the above concerns, they in turn asked for various information including model & serial numbers. Operator says 'would you mind holding  the line while I speak to someone'......she returns to say 'it appears from the information you have supplied, that it is an LPG cooker and is your gas bottle running low'

Crikey no! It's connected to the mains (I have no bottled gas) 'was it a qualified fitter that installed it' she says.....yes 'Safegas registered, supplied by the vendor' says I.

Manufacturer's engineer to call  Tuesday  21st Oct.

Bluddy ell!
