Some young people do have good taste after all.

Ask andsome - he has got the X factor. It is a genetic mutation which inflicts you with good looks, a brilliant mind, an excellent sense of humour, tenacity and a terrible taste in classical music.



He is also too modest to show his real picture in his avatar - instead a photoshopped perversion. To put the record straight this is what he actually looks like

Another survey showed that far more under twenty fives watched Attenborough than that dreadful pop show.

I challenge you to watch this all the way through, and still make that claim.

I did as you suggested and watched it all the way through - but it didn't float my boat. Far too heavy for my tastes

This is about as heavy as it gets for me

That's because their parents didn't show them how to change the batteries in the remote.

Nice one Jimmy - one of my favourites.

As is this. Pachebels Canon played by Jules Gianni. 

Jules is a friend of ours and played at our wedding 7 years ago. The guests were gobsmacked because he had just come second on "Britains Got Talent" and they had no idea he was to perform for us.

Here is picture of him with us at the wedding.
