The 60's. An era of great cultural change in the UK. Musically, the many changes included The Beatles, the Stones, offshore radio with Radio London, Radio Caroline et al and err . . . . Jethro Tull Rant over. I could go on about the 60's till the cows come home
Cherry or Apple pie, with or without custard/clotted cream.
No disrespect to our Scottish/Irish pals, but a good wine every time. I love a good wine, wine about the weather, Spurs losing...... oh sorry, the stuff that comes out of a bottle? I drink that as well.
I wish i understood QI vs Mock the Week...more top secret brit-stuff? Anyway...Gene Wilder and his oompa Loompas or Johnny Depp and Multiple Deep Roy Oompa loompas?...My kid led me thru both movies in the past wek and i must say, despite some good moments in the old one, i think Johnny D and the second version was much, much better....better Willie W, better Charlie, better grand...pa, better other kids and better oompa L's.....a few of the lower tech chocalate factory scenes were better in the first.
Musically it's a tie...like which of your kids do you love most...of course, i only have one child...maybe some of you parents secretly love one, hate the other(s)...so Locomotive Breath wins because the topic of life/death/god/destiny is heftier than rich man-poor man in Aqualung.
Very difficult to answer MadDog, a musical hero, sporting hero or maybe somebody from show biz. If I had to choose just one person, it would be dear old Spike Milligan. This is the third time dear old Spike has appeared in this subject and I'm glad about that. Revolutionized comedy not quite single handed etc., etc.
steelmonkey: Thank You for interview and interview sharing. Very Cool.

futureshock: Hello again! I hope everyone is staying healthy and applying their newfound isolation-affected times and circumstances to beneficial activities so that years from now we can all tell younger generations how we survived this ordeal smartly as best possible!

nonrabbit: Hello Futureshock! Great to hear from you. Hope you're staying healthy too....a metre apart from any other human (animal?) that tries to cross you path. I'm a librarian in a public library and we've asking people to make a diary of their experiences.....

nonrabbit: in lockdown so that the next generation/s will get detailed answers when they say " What did you do in the Covid lockdown Granda/ Granny"...."Well Sonny, I bought a hell of a lot of toilet paper" Stay safe Futureshock and see you here soon!!

chester: Do any of you [my fellow JT Forum members] miss watching live sporting events on TV, because of the virus, as much as I do?

steelmonkey: I miss reading about the Golden State Warriors and St Pauli in the second Bundesliga. I keep an eye on the baseball 'A's and the Brazil team, Botoafogo. My EPL Team is Tot Spurs and I take the time to hate two teams :HSV in Germany and Man United.

maddogfagin: Miss the sport on tv especially the football and now that summer is upon us the cricket. I fear that things will take a year or two to get back to how it was before all this shenanigans.

steelmonkey: I miss some watching and reading about sports but not enough to suddenly get interested in the Belarus Football League or Taiwanese baseball. Fans are going pretty far for a fix.

chester: I don't watch very much BUNDESLIGA, but it has returned after two months, with NO FANS allowed in the stadiums. I am starting to follow UFC mixed martial arts, which has returned as well.

tullmatrix: Is there some way to still get the Passion Play complete midi? I pasted the link into my browser and got a message that i was forbidden.

botanicman: Chester, The Plague has made me realize how little I actually do care about sports. I might not spend the time to watch when they do return!

pbinlostangeles: For us in So Cal, first time since 1974 no Long Beach Grand Prix and - apparently - no Indy 500. At least not on Memorial Day. Hopefully, they'll get this virus crud figured out before the start of MotoGP season

chester: NASCAR has restarted it's 2020 season but, like German soccer, to empty grandstands. I think catching a virus is low on the list of dangers that can befall a racing car driver.

chester: I know that I am late to the idea, but I have started wearing a mask while out in public. My Canadian officials have changed their stance from: not recommended to mildly suggested to strongly advised.

steelmonkey: Not only am I doing a zoom meeting in nice shirt and boxer shorts...I am ignoring boss and reading Tull news.
