1. Miss Lemon from the hit TV show Poirot was played by actress Pauline Moran. From 1965-70 Moran was the bassist in all-female rock band She Trinity.
2. I was goosed today in a pub. By a dog.
3. Fledgling herring gulls are fearless, inquisitive and loud.
4. Daytime TV reminds you that certain sitcoms were indeed masterful. The Rodney-Cassandra wedding episode of Only Fools & Horses, where Del Boy is left alone at the end, was impactful, emotionally economical, more insightful than 3mnths of narrative arc in a typical soap.
5. Hugh Fraser, who played Captain Hastings in Poirot, is an amiable cove on Twitter. He writes novels these days.
6. The experimental music programme Late Junction on R3, hosted by Verity Sharp, is ideal for schlepping back up the M90/A90/A947 late doors.
7. Recent Flaming Lips videos have been remarkable (Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds feat. Miley Cyrus; Almost Home).
8. Only R3 could have a breakfast DJ called Petroc Trelawney.
9. Wrecking Ball, for all its faux-controversy, is a fine pop song.
10. The Proms get a bad rep for their appalling nationalist finale. The programme however is kicking.
