Ahh, that’s sad – Tony Curtis died today, at the fine age of 85. Although the media tended to show mostly photographs and movie-clips of him with Jack Lemmon in Some Like it Hot, I mostly remember him in The Persuaders TV series, shown in the 70s, where he played millionaire playboy Danny Wilde.
I thought he and Roger and Moore made a fine double-act and who could forget that theme tune by the legendary John Barry? (If you have, you can listen to it here).
I can clearly remember, Mum, Dad, Neil and I sitting round the TV (on a Sunday, I think) watching the series. We loved it!!!

I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
