I’ve had no telly over Christmas, buy have a laptop and a few DVDs, mostly left by my brother.

I watched the first episode of ‘Walking With Beasts’. I’m not sure. Marvellous animation, and gripping story, but if there’s the evidence suggested it wasn’t shown.

The story was of many animals killed by an eruption of gas from a lake’s bottom.

I thought about this as I sat in a bath, after a sprout, onion and leek curry, with a bottle of strong Guinness.

I am now drinking gin & tonic with lime. So getting one of my 5/7/9/34 a day (delete the not now nag at figure).
