    The last is easily fixed.
    It is good the past holds many worthy memories but it is still worth making new ones whilst you can :)

    All round central London buildings are lit up. Google it. I'd go for a look if it weren't so cold.

    I remember the Clitheroe Kid from Sunday lunchtimes, on the Light Programme, after the Navy Lark. When it transferred to the television as Just Jimmy, in about 1970, it just reeked of perv.

    Children's Favourites, Frank Crumit, The Prune Song. Although from the 1920's it was played a lot on 50's and early 60's radio.

    The only Telly Goons sketch that stuck with me all my life was one where Henry Crun was a lighthouse keeper working at the top of his lighthouse when the phone rang. He had to walk all the way down the spiral staircase to the bottom to answer it, but just as he got there, it stopped ringing. He trudged all the way back to the top, muttering to himself, and having reached the landing, the phone started ringing again.

    Spike Milligan was a genius in satirising the frustrations of everyday life succinctly in absurd comedy like this.
