I am such a softie…

I mentioned at the time that Vincent and the Doctor was (and I quote myself) “genuinely affecting”, which I can now admit is typical Les-style understatement for “made me cry”. I’ve just watched it on DVD[1] and it did it again, even though I knew what was coming. If anything, it got to me more the second time.

It has to be said that if I ever got my hands on an actual working time machine, there could be few better uses for it than showing Vincent van Gogh just how much future generations would love his work, even though even that wouldn’t be enough to save him from the darkness.

Weight and Stuff Report – 24 January 2011

Just a minor upward adjustment today, nothing to be alarmed about.

What with one thing and another, I was running[1] a bit late this morning, so I ended up getting the bus again. Must stop doing that.

Today’s picture is another one from last summer. I think I’ve posted another view of this, but here it is anyway – a lovely old toll bridge just up the river from the majestic Barmouth Bridge.
