Packaging Show Titles


I don't know if you get calls from recruitment people, but I get them quite frequently (a result of having some 2,000 plus Linked-In contacts). I've noticed that recently recruitment executives seeking people for relatively lowly positions call themselves headhunters. Time was when a headhunter was retained purely to seek out high level CEOs, MDs and FDs.

We started watching the One Show on TV last night and listened to some 3 minutes of self-congratulatory bollocks before realising it was totally irrelevant to us. Didn't have a clue as to who the presenters, or the first guest, were. We need a TV channel that has wall-to-wall reruns of The Two Ronnies, Rising Damp, Porridge, The Morecambe and Wise Show, Only Fools and Horses, Tomorrow's World, etc., with the odd documentary (not about people on the dole or people merely doing their dreary jobs) and some good films or dramas. The odd talent show lasting no more than 30 minutes might be tolerated, but only if hosted by a resurrected Hughie Green (and I mean that most sincerely, folks) and not some orange arsehole with a show-biz career spanning all of 10 seconds. The contestants must have learned their craft in northern working men's clubs and be able to suffer heckling without requiring a trauma counselor.

Lidl really need to d something about the excess of packaging in their coffee pods. Aldi do it so much better.


And before anyone has a go at me for the coffee pods themselves, the coffee is recycled in the compost and the blue plastic pods go into the plastic recycling.
