  1. Extremely good point. If we all lived by that code, life would be much more pleasant for everyone. I try, honest I do . . .bodily temperance is a bit of an issue!

    Slightly off the main subject, but did you go down to watch the filming of the Pretenders on the moor at the bottom of Turn Hill? I did, I think I went down with Max and Tim Croot. Some of the locals featured as extras in the ‘battle’.
    Talking of RTE 1 I am really upset at RTE’s decision to stop broadcasting on MW later this month, unfortunately my car radio only has FM and MW I shall miss listening to RTE 1 over here. I do have LW at home but herself thinks I am slightly mad wanting to listen to an Irish radio station.Its more fun than listening to our depressing news I tell her.

  3. Baino,

    ‘Temperance’ of course means moderation! (As in temperate climate)


    I went with my dad one time. We parked in a lane and watched across a field – it was very slow! I think Ron (?) Combes was in it.

  4. Yes Ian I’m sure Ron Coombes was in it, see your memory is just as sharp as mine. I do remember the filming to be long and drawn out for just a short piece of action. Do you know I think I actually watched some of the series at your house as we didn’t have a telly in them days.I used to be fascinated by your Dad rolling his own ciggies wondering why they didn’t come out of a packet like my ole mans. Dirty habit I have given it up for 4 years in May.
