New Agenda on Sunday. is out! Edition of 31 January 2016





 
Good morning everyone.





Frank Finlay and Terry Wogan passed away this week adding to the list of “celebrities” including David Bowie to Alan Rickman, who have died in 2016 and it is only January. It may be imagination, or perhaps a factor of getting older, but it seems that the news of people passing away is about figures who I have almost grown up with. A sobering thought.


 'Sir Michael Terence "Terry" Wogan, KBE DL 3 August 1938 – 31 January 2016

Wogan will be missed by many people. R I P Terry.'                   'Francis (Frank) Finlay, 6 August 1926 – 30 January 2016.

Casanova (in the BBC serial of the same name), John Carter (in Cromwell),Father Geoghagen (in The Wild Geese), Peter Manson (in Bouquet of Barbed Wire), Frank Finlay has played these and many other many roles. A great talent. R I P Frank.'


February brings the 2016 Six Nations Trophy competition to our television screens. I shall liberate my England Rugby shirt from the wardrobe, and practice my rendition of “Swing low Sweet Chariot”, in the optimistic belief that England cannot perform as badly as they did during the World Cup competition last year. It may be a case of “the triumph of hope over experience”, but we shall see.

Meanwhile, back in Jersey in Jersey.

              

“The Living Legend” (or Jersey Experience), a once-popular tourist attraction enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers a year, has closed.
Not many places (if any) left for us tourist to buy the very low quality very high priced tatty rubbish in the "Sale" which lasts all season. They should restore the "Strawberry Farm" to its former glory.

The technical problems which have plagued the “Flagship” Condor Liberation since it came into operation almost a year ago should be significantly reduced in 2016, one of the firm’s directors has said.
You may be forgiven for thinking that in view of the number of "issues" that this white elephant had in 2015 (it came into service less than 12 months ago) there could not possibly be more problems this year.
Could there?

No weather report or forecast today as my little piece of seaweed has dried up.

Have a nice week
