"Here Is Some News....."

A swift flip through today's News:
Magician Paul Daniels was hospitalised recently after the delectably naughty teddybear puppet Sooty chucked a pizza at him......clearly Johnny Marbles has encouraged A Trend that has stretched even to puppets...

And talking about stretching ( in this case, high waisted trousers?) Simon Cowell has reportedly shed 14 lbs on a Smoothie diet. Smoothie. That figures. WILL Simon need lots of new ( slenderer?) trousers??

ALSO: Model Linda Evangelista declares she requires $46,000 monthly as maintenance for her 4 year old daughter and for her own personal grooming. She reckons she needs armed former police detectives as drivers plus a well-paid 24hr Nanny.
" I have to maintain my image" says statuesque Evangelista.
WOW! She wouldn't be happy with my wonderfully faithful Ponds Cold Cream...or my more than acceptable L'Oreal for the more mature of skins...

AND lastly: I look forward to this outcome:
writer Tony Parsons is "Writer In Residence" at Heathrow for a week. He's finding material for his short story collection:" Departures: Seven Stories From Heathrow".
I've long annoyed my family by disappearing into my own world whenever at M/Ch, Gatwick, etc....because I'm weighing up folk lounging on sofas....OR staring at quarrelling families in cafes, or gawping at passionate reunions by barriers...not to mention me wondering for days afterwards about a sobbing old man OR a shifty-eyed woman Or a sharp-suited guy with no more than his wallet....
This collection by Parsons will certainly be on my shelf.

Airports would be wonderful places to go just to "people-watch" if it weren't for the hideously high prices they charge for parking - or even for the bus service to get there.

Imagine having $46,000 per month, what bliss?

I love people-watching, but can't imagine being in an airport for an entire week. Then again, I'll more than likely be buying his book to read once it's published.

Yes! I haven't used an airport for 2 yrs which is probably the longest gap for decades...had better do something about it...and hang the airport expenses you mention! Good to hear from you.

Debs:
Yes, I'm looking forward to that book. I wonder who he's weighing up ( to put in it) at this very moment?! Thankyou for visiting.

Gosh, $46,000 a month.

And who could have imagined Sooty was so violent? Although I have to say I never liked him. Much preferred Sweep.

I read online Daily Mail Uk every day to see what is going on in Britain.

I bet there are many stories to be told in an airport....
