I went to Leeds today. It rained. And to make things more depressing I trusted the satnav, which never ends well. If I ever enter Mastermind my specialist subject could well be “Being lost on the Ring Road in Leeds”.

I’m home now and watching The Apprentice. It gives me no hope for the future. If I was the producer I would rewrite it as a horror movie andΒ  kill one every week in a horrible, ironic manner. The one selected from tonight’s show, to make and sell burgers, would be in serious trouble if I had access to an industrial-sized mincer.

To be honest, if I was in charge I’d feed the lot of them through it, including Lord Sugar and Baroness Brady. I give them their full titles because I know, from reading his book, that he considers it important, even if most of us find the current honours system a bit of an embarrassment.

Fair play to him though, if you excel in your field you deserve an honour. Not quite sure what field the Amstrad email phoneΒ was a leader in, but the principle is sound.

I like Claude Littner, I’d let him have his own series. Well, with my plan for the rest of the cast you’d have quite a few weeks to fill in.

After leaving Leeds we went to Skipton and visited a farm shop. We bought rhubarb coulis, samphire, marmalade with orange and chilli and a big steak pie. I will try to take pictures tomorrow if I have time after eating. It’s a big pie and will take some shifting.

Today’s photos were snatched during a dry few minutes. Sorry there are no better ones.

      I was OK when we were going up six times a year or more when he was at University but now we don’t go up so much I use sat nav and always seem to have a problem. Ah well… πŸ™‚

        Same here 😊

        Still, on the whole they have saved me money in petrol (I.e. I’ve got there much more effectively).

        A friend of mine complained that when he joined the Royal Navy they made him learn to use a sextant and when he left they were using sat navs, which requires a lot less skill.

      Went twice with the kids – keep meaning to go again. Also the Thackray Medical Museum – sounds good. There are some good museums about, and now I’m reaching 60 I’m expecting some discounts! πŸ™‚
