    What we do in our off-time

    Yes, that's the drawback with hard copies. I got excellent bookcases from IKEA a few years ago, and they're full - I didn't expect them to fill so quickly! Swami

    Hard copies still have their place, though. I have a very good book collection, even if I say so myself. Swami

    Only Fools remains my favourite, though I do have a collection of some great comedies: 'Allo 'Allo; Are You Being Served?; Blackadder; Dads Army; The Detectives; The Fall and Rise Of Reginald Perrin; Fawlty Towers; Going Straight; Grace & Favour; The Green Green Grass; Keeping Up Appearances; Last Of The Summer Wine; Mr Bean; On The Buses; One Foot In The Grave; Only Fools and Horses; Open All Hours; Still Open All Hours; Porridge; Some Mother Do 'Ave 'Em - also The Two Ronnies. You can't go far wrong there! Swami

    Hakuho retires

    Finally Hakuho's non-stop hokey-cokey in and out of tournaments over the last three years seems to be coming to a close. Hideously overrated and for all the anti-Kyokai bilge that appears, notably on Chris Gould's channel, he has been treated extremely leniently for treating the yokozuna rank like a public convenience. Swami
  12. Never heard of that one. For me The Detectives (Jasper Carrot) was in that vein. Swami
  13. Surely Orora is worthy of mention too? Swami
  14. Also watch their serial "The Worm That Turned": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhVrtQMy0Og Swami
  15. Don't like "The League Of Gentlemen", doesn't do anything for me. Ronnie Barker was our best ever comic actor - the work in The Two Ronnies was possibly the best ever this country produced. Swami
