Who will be the top Danger Mouse? Alexander Armstrong vs David Jason


Great choices. What about bringing back Duckula? I’ve written an article to explain who I think should take on voice roles in a rebooted Duckula. Feel free to take a look if you have time…

He’s the greatest. He’s fantastic. Whenever there is danger he’ll be there.

But who is Danger Mouse? Between 1981 and 1994, the hugely popular Cosgrove Hall one-eyed rodent cartoon character was voiced by comedy legend David Jason.

Today, it has been announced, next year’s reboot will feature a new voice, that of Alexander Armstrong.

But who is the better of the two to voice the greatest super agent the world has ever seen? Rather than wait to see how Armstrong performs, let’s resolve this now…

The most famous?

You plonker: David Jason autobiography pages printed in new Bridget Jones book

Who do you think? (Picture: BBC)

This is a no brainer.

Sir David today is a knight of the realm and star of Only Fools And Horses, A Touch Of Frost and The Darling Buds Of May.

Armstrong is certainly famous as the host of quiz show Pointless, for his comedy work with Ben Miller and many other things but is less…

United We Stand: 10 Things I Love About My Country #8: Actor & Actresses


Another great country list from Mrs American pie. Love Whoopi Goldberg, still wish she would marry Peter Cushing. Also sad to see there’s no Drew Barrymore :(

Yay! Scotland didn’t break up with the UK! I do hope everybody gets what they want out of even having the referendum.

It’s Week 8(ish) for  Steve and Suzie and me! They’re spectacularly Scottish and awesomely English respectively, and I’m American, and here we are once again listing our favorite things about our countries. This week it’s actors and actresses! Also, from this point on, when I say “actors”, I mean “actors and actresses”.

I thought actors would be easy, but when I started mentally cataloguing my favorites, I ran into two problems. First, I don’t really do the Hollywood thing. I don’t watch that many movies anymore, having not a lot of spare time with two young children running underfoot. It’s a 2-ish hour commitment that I just can’t make when I could curl up with a book for 30 minutes and fall asleep. Second, I found my…

Flower Of Scotland…



Violet is a bright bluish purple color that takes its name from the violet flower. On the traditional color wheel used by painters, it is located between blue and purple



Thistle is the common name of a group of flowering plants characterised by leaves with sharp prickles on the margins. Thistles are known for their effusive flower heads, usually purple, rose or pink, also yellow or white. The thistle is the floral emblem of Scotland.

Are You Voting Aye Or Building Another Wall..?


Voting well underway! Let’s have a wee sing song to ease the tension…

Unless you have been on another planet for the past month you will know that Scotland will vote in the referendum for independence on Thursday. I’ll leave the politics to the people who know what they are talking about but what if I was to decide which way I vote based on songs created by supporters of each campaign..?

Guest Post – Scotland’s Eve


I respect this opinion. I think a lot of people are forgetting it is peoples right to have different opinions from our own. It’s some instances it’s been a case of let’s see who can shout the loudest. Once the dust is settled whether we speak to our neighbours or not, we still have to live under the same roof!

I feel physically sick tonight.

My stomach is doing somersaults and my heart is racing.

I can’t eat.

It’s the eve of the Scottish Referendum.

Tomorrow I will go to the polls along with my fellow countrymen to cast a vote that will determine whether Scotland stays within the 307 year union of the United Kingdom or declares its wish for independence.

For me there is no doubt in my mind that a vote for independence is the right thing for Scotland.

And, perhaps, more importantly, the right thing for the rest of the world.

A rather grand claim, some may say. And yes, I quite understand the doubts that billions of people would have in imagining that a nation of just over 5,000,000 people could have any great impact on the rest of the world.

What possible benefit could the rest of humanity gain by Scotland declaring itself as…

Scottish Referendum – Don Charisma’s Opinion


Thanks Don! Great to hear an outsiders opinion/views on the Scottish referendum. Oh and Don, don’t knock the skirts until you’ve worn one and feel the breeze about you balls ;)

Originally posted on Don Charisma:

Scotland, it’s the most northerly part of the UK. It’s beautifully mountainous and quite desolate in places, in contrast to built-up places like Edinburgh, which is a great buzzing metropolitan capital city. Worth a visit if you ever get the chance.

On 18-Sep-2014 the scots are voting whether to go for an independent Scotland, that is, separate from the UK or whether to remain part of the UK. A “YES” or “NO” to an independent Scotland. It’s also been brewing for hundreds of years.

This is not an event to be taken lightly, it’s a historic event, it’s outcome will have a big impact on the UK one way or another. A “YES” vote to Scotland breaking away from the UK, would have the biggest impact.

The pound dropped considerably on the news that the Scots might actually vote “YES”. Which has been speculated to be because the UK would lose the income from north sea…
