I discovered this excellent group whilst watching a concert on Belgian TV one Sunday. I decided I'd try and get some recordings a couple of weeks ago and was pleased I did. They really ought to be more famous.

A man went into a dentist's and said, "I keep thinking I'm a moth", to which the dentist replied, "You don't need a dentist, you need a psychiatrist." "I know", said the man. "So what are you doing here then?" enquired the dentist. The man explained, "The light was on."

It occurred to me just now, and for no apparent reason, that ex-Smiths (miserable but excellent Manchester band - y'know the bass player went to my old school) guitarist Johnny Marr's name sounds like the French "J'en ai marre" meaning I'm fed up. Well I never, how quaint. Oh, and it rhymes with Jean-Michel Jarre (I knew a bloke who took his dog for walks when he lived in Paris- small world isn't it)

The rain's stopped, my car boot's still leaking and yet there is hope ... I called the garage for tips and apparently smearing acid-free petroleum jelly over the rubber seals on the rear lamp units (you have to take them off first of course) is what the professionals do. I gave it a go but haven't had a chance to test it yet.

Another dreary day really. It rained really heavily all day, which did give me the opportunity to look for the leak in my car (by climbing into the boot with a torch); felt a bit like being in a coffin, which didn't cheer me up. Had to call my wife on my mobile (which I luckily had with me) to come and rescue me as I couldn't get out.
