Opening the Floor

I'll be honest, I have nothing to blog about. Nowt. Nil. Nada. The letters into The Shropshire Star have been dull. I've calmed down a bit. No-one else famous has died (yet).

So, here's an idea. I'm going to whore out my blog to you, my loyal readers. If you want me to blog about something, leave a comment here.

You could possibly choose just one word - ie. "cheese", "love", "confabulation".

Maybe a person - "Biggles", "Joe Cole", "Albrecht von Hohenzollern".

Maybe a place - "New York", "Telford", "Addis Ababa".

Pop a comment down, and I'll blog about it. Promise.

In Memoriam

Oh dear, just when I had stopped thinking about death, another one bites the dust.

What can you say about Edward Woodward? The inspiration behind my username. The star of The Equalizer. The lead actor in the 2nd worst film of all time, The Wicker Man. The amusing little turn he did in Hot Fuzz. The roles in The Bill and Eastenders.

No words can reflect my sorrow at this moment, but luckily, help is at hand. E.J.Thribb stayed over last night to watch the NFL, and he has just awoken. I am passing the baton to him, to have the final word on this splendid man:

So. Farewell then Edward Woodward

He who played The Equalizer
I'm now going to drink in your memory
A lovely can of Tizer
