Seems I only come on here to mourn the passing of my youth these days.

I am saddened to report the passing of the wonderful British actor Frank Finlay.

2016 is rapidly becoming a horrible year and it's not even a month old.  
This coming hard on the heels of the death of Sir Terry Wogan.
Mark Gatiss and Sir Roger Moore are among those paying tribute to stage and screen actor Frank Finlay, who has died aged 89.

A terrible shock to learn of the death of David Bowie. Despite being in our lives for 6 decades no one ever thought of him being old.

I have a 13 year old son and one of his favourite playlists on my Iphone is the David Bowie hit's from the 70's.

Doesn't matter what music you listen to....He was The Influence.

So! "Septic Blotter" has finally left! Hopefully his next free junket will be courtesy of the law. Time to clear out this bunch of pigs at the swill bucket. The whole bunch of them are so "bent" they have to sleep on spiral staircases. Football is the worldwide game of the people. Time to give it back to the people!

Sad to hear that "The John Terry Era" at Chelsea football club is coming to an end.
Chelsea will never see another player like him again and it's just as likely neither will the Premiership.

Chelsea are not offering long-standing captain John Terry a new contract at Stamford Bridge and the veteran defender will leave at the end of the season.

Please spare a thought today for the family of Henry Worsley who died today of massive organ failure while trying to recreate Sir Ernest Shackleton's effort to become the first man to cross Antarctica solo and without supplies.

Henry was just 30 miles from completing when he fell.

In the process he raised money for charity.

In these days of pseudo heroes sometimes we forget the genuine.
Explorer Henry Worsley dies after suffering exhaustion and dehydration during a solo attempt to cross Antarctica.

Also today and not to be forgotten (or overshadowed) Mott The Hoople (All the Young Dudes) drummer Dale "buffin" Griffin passed away.
He was a founder member of the band that had hits such as Roll Away the Stone and the aforementioned All the Young Dudes.

 In Britain the Mott version  was produced by David Bowie who also sang the backing vocals.

Sad to hear of the death of the esteemed Ian Frasier Kilminster (Lemmy) this evening after losing his battle with the big "C"
His work with Hawkwind and Motörhead will live on long.

I remember seeing Motörhead come out to play "Bomber" in white tuxedo's..... Sense of humour or what?!!!

Time for you to go on and deafen heaven....

You were the Ace of Spades!

Sometimes you wonder if Apple plan each iOS upgrade with the intention of causing peeps to leave in disappointment and frustration.

I am a voracious listener to audio books and with iOS 8.4 came these wtf! changes....

Audio books have now been relocated from the "music player" to "books."

Understandable you may say and I don't particularly disagree except that there are more nasties lurking under the surface.

Where audiobooks used to show as a single item they now show only in chapter form.

Where before I could interchange betwixt my iPhone or iPad and my Sonos system by finding the exact place I left off on either device now I need a degree in arithmetic to find 2 hours 13 minutes
(Example only) on Sonos and convert that to which chapter on my idevice. And of course vise versa.

In a chapter there is no rewind or forward except in 15 second increments and should you look at the book on your idevice to try to discover where exactly you are.... The book auto starts!

Frankly this is just fiddling for the sake of fiddling. And before music players ask what the issue is...... Some of the audio books I buy can be up to 60 hours long.

Even if you know what chapter you're in there is no accurate way to find your position within the chapter.

Put it back the way it was Apple!
