  1. I never watched any of her programmes, but it's horrible how the tabloids do that - pick someone and just constantly bully them without any thought for the impact that the lies and negativity have on that particular person. I also find it sickening how the same media people/outlets who wrote/published the bullying articles are now gushing about how tragic her death is. Do they not stop to think that they played a part in causing it??? Every tabloid journalist in this country needs to take a long, hard look at themselves in the bathroom mirror tonight.
  2. 45, 382 - Sneaking another number in just before dinner. And awarding myself my annual Valentine's gift of renewing my fan club subscription
  3. 45, 380 - To be fair, my Dad doesn't complain very often about my music. If he dislikes something so badly, he can always press the 'OFF' button He *does* like U2, so that's the important thing
  4. 45, 378 - I like to make mix CDs on my computer for listening to in the car. Although my Dad doesn't always like my taste in music I'm currently putting a CD together of favourite Nirvana and Foo Fighters songs. Not sure what Dad will make of those - although he *does* like Weird Al Yankovic's Nirvana parody - despite never (as far as I know) having actually heard Teen Spirit itself
  5. 45, 376 - Keeping the counting going while I listen to "So Cruel". Spotify says I haven't love-hearted this song... I'm fairly sure I have. Several times
  6. 45, 373 - It was quite bad here. I'm glad I didn't have to travel anywhere yesterday as most train services through our region were cancelled, Trees down, floods, all sorts of mayhem. There's also been snow in some places today.
  7. 45, 371 - Counting on a horrible, stormy Sunday.
  8. That's OK @Manohlive We all need to vent sometimes And that is lovely about RiRi and Invisible. Dogs can often sense when we're not well, physically and/or mentally. I don't know how, but they can. My sister's dogs always wanted to sit with her or try and get on the sofa with her when she was going through the worst of her recent health problems. Maybe it's because they've been around humans for thousands of years now, that's made dogs such caring animals. We've got horrendous weather here too at the moment - I'm counting it as my good thing for today that our garden fence is still standing!
  9. Listening to my favourite radio show this evening and they have played not one, but TWO U2 songs "Streets" and "Two Hearts Beat as One" to be precise, which is especially cool as I can't remember having heard "Two Hearts" on the radio before. Mika is an Alaskan Malamute cross, so she's a pretty big dog - and in her case, she's also overweight. She overeats due to an anxiety issue - her previous owner neglected her and, even though she's been owned by my sister and her family for several years now, she's never quite got used to the fact that in their house, she has regular feeding times. She even used to nose about in the kitchen bin, but they've got her out of that habit now. Although she still tries to eat the cats' food sometimes She's such a loving, affectionate dog, it boggles the mind why anyone would have mistreated her so badly.
  10. I miss having a dog. On the upside, every time I go over to my sister's house, their dogs make up for it. Mika and Luna make such a fuss over me, it can take a good minute to get through the door. I think part of it is also because, facially, Mika looks very much like our old dog, so of course I'm soft on her. Even if she does sometimes forget that she's a large dog and very heavy when she tries to sit on me on the sofa. Either that, or she's trying to copy the cats
  11. 45, 370 - It was so cold last night, the car was flashing an "Ice Alert" on the way home from record club. Too cold for my liking
  12. I had a fun evening at record group - and found some new music to explore. I'd heard *of* Nightwish before, but hadn't heard any of their songs. I liked the one I heard tonight for starters
  13. 45, 368 - Evening counting before I watch the latest episode of "Good Omens". And of course it's got me itching to re-read the book.
  14. 45, 366 - The library was so quiet today that I read over 200 pages of my current book
  15. 45, 363 - Afternoon counting. The library was a mess when I went in this morning, but I did eventually get it tidy.
  16. 45, 362 - Late-night counting while I try and avoid annoying relatives who are gloating about Brexit all over Facebook I don't see it as something to celebrate at all - it makes us look small-minded to the rest of the world But whatever happens, I will keep counting
  17. 45, 361 - This number sounds like it could be the sequel to that tour. Or maybe a road you travelled to get to a show
  18. 45, 359 - @caz63 Shrewsbury were 2-0 down - including having scored an own goal. When they got one back, we thought that was a good effort. When they got the equaliser, me and my dad were jumping around the room The last few minutes were very nervous, hoping Liverpool wouldn't nick a late winner. And this morning, I was listening to the tennis commentary from Australia - well done Rafa Nadal 🎾
  19. 45, 357 - Hi @caz63 I'm over the moon that Shrewsbury Town drew with Liverpool to take them to a replay in the FA Cup. I don't think our local radio commentators have any voice left after that comeback
  20. I'm in shock and I don't even follow basketball. Kobe Bryant was one of those players that even non-fans like me had heard about - he had *that* much of an impact. Horrible, horrible news. We haven't even finished January yet and already the Grim Reaper needs to take a break. I hope this year isn't going to turn out like 2016, where it seemed like we lost someone every week
  21. 45, 355 - The radio show did not play U2. Although they *did* finish with one of my favourite Muse songs and I turned it up very loudly And @Frankaz I can sympathise about the long bus journeys - it's a similar situation round here.
  22. 45, 353 - Chilled out evening counting while I listen to my favourite radio show. I wonder if they'll play any U2? 🤔
  23. 45, 349 - Musical morning counting while I listen to my new releases playlist on Spotify. For once, it's mainly made up of artists I actually *like* - did they all deliberately get together and decide to all have new music out today? The list starts with Ricky Martin, then goes on to Inhaler, Pearl Jam. David Bisbal, Birds of Tokyo and now it's just shuffled round to Foo Fighters. My music taste is nothing if not varied.
  24. 45, 347 - Today it was so foggy round my way that travelling on the bus was quite spooky. At times, we could barely see 10 metres in front of the bus and it looked like everything had just disappeared Very glad I had my hi-vis jacket with me.
