Same. I'm very pale so I have to put on sunscreen about every hour if I'm sitting right in the sun. Also, the hot and damp weather makes me very sleepy and not wanting to do everything.

Oh, and work was a hell. Since you have to wear long trousers, closed shoes and a company polo which is actually made of quite thick fabric, I was sweating like a pig.

I like when it's sunny, but this just isn't funny anymore.

As a golf enthusiast, I am excited about The Open Championship happening this weekend in Muirfield, Scotland. How far away is that from where you live, mmm?

About 90 miles Zig. Too warm to pay to watch golf, go sit in the garden with a cool drink, some nice food and snacks and it on the laptop and bask in the glorious sun for free.  I saw Woods was favourite, now im not a golf enthusiast but he was pants at the Masters so any idea why Zig? Is it because its Tiger and his reputation goes 5 years after him.

I normally watch the last day of the major Golf Tournaments so might go sit in the garden with the laptop on and bask in the glorious sun for free.

I prefer Say, Say, Say a hell of a lot more over Ebony and Ivory, that song is forever burned in my brain. Memories of being a 7 year old and having to sing it in my drama school *shudders*

Yeah, I think "Say Say Say" is OK too. Much prefer it to E&I (or "The Girl Is Mine") - it's merely mindless, rather than idiotic. And yet I love Stevie Wonder a helluva lot more than Michael Jackson, go figure. (Then again, in '82 SW was past his prime while MJ was peaking.)

From listening to the 'expert' analysts, they say this course suits his game perfectly. Personally, I'm a Mickelson fan - if he doesn't fare well, I wouldn't mind seeing Lee Westwood win it.

That's the best way if you ask me. When I lived in Phoenix I went to the Phoenix Open (now called the Waste Management Open - sheesh) in person a few times. It's fun to be part of the crowd (especially on the famous 16th hole), but you end up missing so much.

I really HATE Say Say Say. Ebony and Ivory isn't a really bad song, but it gives me an enormous case of migraine. I hadn't actually heard The Girl Is Mine until a few minutes ago and I must say that out of these 3 songs we are discussing, I like The Girl Is Mine the most. And with ''like'' I mean which I dislike the least.

...But hey, if the song never exited, we never would have gotten this classic SNL skit from the same year:

LOL, I'd forgotten about that. But then it came back to me, including the "Beatle kid that looks like a broad." Poor Paul.

That's another of the McCartney early-80s duets I dislike intensely. Especially the talking part. It *really* dates the song - one of my friends called that kind of thing a "pornover." And something about a 40something man bantering with a 20something man about fighting over a woman gave me the intense creeps. And I can't think of the song without think of that skeevy drawing MJ did for the liner notes. Why is the woman so tiny, lol?

Randomly, though, I do remember liking the musical shift at the part where they sing, "So come and goooo..." Like a brief key change. The bridge is the best part of the song, I think.

Sad to hear that great British comedian and actor Mel Smith died yesterday of a heart attack at the age of 60.

He was simply one of the most important comedians of his generation, finding fame on the highly influential Not the Nine O'Clock News in the late '70s alongside Griff Rhys Jones, Rowan Atkinson and Pamela Stephenson.

A couple of reminders of his work.

This, from Not the Nine O'Clock News, is probably one of my favourite sketches of all time.

And I also found this, from Alas Smith and Jones, which begins with a discussion of the '60s before moving onto a mock-documentary about The Beatles.

RIP Mel. Thanks for all the laughter.

Couldn't believe the news when I saw it on the BBC website. Mel Smith was a comedy legend to me as I grew up with Alas Smith and Jones and Colin's Sandwich, both of which I loved, amongst a heap of other stuff he was involved it (my brother had a film he was in called Wilt which we would watch constantly). Not The Nine O'clock News has been on Gold the last few days and its still far funnier than a lot of the new comedies. Every time he was on TV he got me laughing and listening to whatever he was talking about so very sad news. Will be very sadly missed but leaves behind a ton of laughter and inspiration.

Thank you Mel.

RIP Mel. Had never heard of him but I thought the vids you guys posted were pretty funny. Loved the mockumentary.

Yes, and that "prat" line about the guy's 60s fashion is going to make me chuckle all week. RIP.

Very strange video of an unidentified sea creature caught on film by an ROV. Nature is very strange. What do you think?

Well that's a bit weird. It's like a massive piece of material which, though I don't know if this is just down to the camera, got bigger and changed shape and colour. In fact, it's very, very weird. Where was it found, mja? Do you know how far down?

A 1988 Roy Orbison concert has come on the tv (I wasn't paying attention to it after a Johnny Cash documentary had finished) and my word he has one heck of a voice. Never been a fan of his early days stuff, cant stand Oh, Pretty Woman, but seriously what a voice, can see what the Beatles and all the others said about him.

The great singer/songwriter JJ Cale passed away following a heart attack on Friday at the age of 74. A gifted songwriter and distinctive performer, he was never as successful as he should have been - but his songs were. After Midnight and Cocaine became classic hits for Eric Clapton, while Lynyrd Skynyrd had a hit with his Call Me the Breeze.

This is not Cale's more well known version of After Midnight, but his original 1966 version.

The very wonderful Cocaine.

Call Me the Breeze, one of my favourites.

And here's he and Eric Clapton performing together.

A great man who will be missed. RIP.

A very strange trip back to my youth today. For all the troubles in the world today, it shows how real the possibility of war with the Soviet Union seemed in the early '80s, and the idea of a limited nuclear war in Europe. As part of a war game in 1983, a speech was drawn up that would have been given by Queen Elizabeth II. It has been released today under the thirty year rule we have in this country for Government documents. It is a chilling reminder, and also quite moving.
