Got a light, Mac?

I'm back in the saddle again, so to speak, after an enforced absence due to an attempted military coup led by my former Minister of the Interior, Rambling Syd Rumpo. Silly sausage! Still, while I remain firmly ensconced 'on the throne', he is now ministering to the interior of a concrete support under the Westway.

Shocking news was revealed today of the results of a 28-year study conducted by NHS Health Scotland in Paisley and Renfrew. It appears that smoking is bad for your health. Yes folks, who would have guessed that non-smokers on average live longer than smokers!
This startling discovery comes hot on the heels of another interesting research project which revealed that watching too much TV increases age-related memory loss. The American study suggested that as you get older, engaging in cognitive exercise, like reading a book, is more likely to protect against future memory impairment than vegetating in front of the goggle-box for hours on end.
Anyway, I must go now as 'To Buy Or Not To Buy' is just about to start. Now, where did I put my fags?

Today's Haiku Film Review:

Smoke (1995) -

Cigar store wisdom
Dispensed with verve and humour
And never austere.
