It’s April, just.

A local shop has a poster up for the Xmas panto. For 2018, the one coming up in December.

The other day I got an e-mail from, well, the Royal Albert Hall, heavily promoting Xmas concerts.

Anyone seen a Christmas menu at a restaurant yet?

Supermarket Sweep

I am not going to write anything about Dale Winton, who died yesterday, presenter of Supermarket sweep and other programmes.

I did kind of meet him once. He was sitting at some tables outside a local café one Saturday, a few years ago. He was loud (you could hear him across the road), holding forth and greeting everyone, including me, even though he probably had not met any of them before. And he was very orange.

But, people say he was a nice bloke, and he had looked quite ill for some time.
