Another Import?

In addition to being encouraged to wish everyone "Happy Holidays" not "Merry Christmas" here in the UK we now have the joys of the Black Friday sales.

Given its apparent alleged origins, do we really want another imported "tradition"?

All About Alan

Just back from the cinema where we saw The Imitation Game, the story of Alan Turing and his work at Bletchley Park cracking the German Enigma Code.

The film stars Keira Knightley and the man who has a voice like treacle, Benedict Cumberbatch as Turing, father on the modern computer. An absolutely brilliant film, based on a true story, well worth a trip to your local multiplex.

Have you noticed in recent years the rather strange habit the media has of referring to something as "upcoming"?

Whatever happened to or what's wrong with describing something as being "in the future" or "coming soon"?

Ah yes for today's dumbed down society that's seen as using far too many words!
