Ahh that smell, would love to have it just one more time.
We still get the smell when it hasn't been used over summer, it takes me right back :D

The one we have now has 2 settings and a thermostat, so set low shouldn't cost too much to run.

I never thought I'd see the day but That's TV, Channel 7 (regional) and Channel 91 (National) are re-showing the Benny Hill Show. Incredibly funny, far more so than I remember it to be. Some of the sketches (which he wrote) are very clever, never realised he was such a genius.

Good to hear they are airing again, but I would have thought he would be classed as non PC, sexist etc now :?

He wasn't the only clever one back then :) Simple and fun unlike todays so called comedy.

It has already been on GMB that complaints have been raised over re-showing it. I saw this post on Twitter, which sums it up very nicely I think -

I can’t get past the argument that every TV has an off button, if you don’t want to watch something, switch it off/over, just don’t try & dictate what other people should watch

Everything is madness now I agree if it’s not your thing then don’t watch it , I don’t get football but just turn the tv over when’s it’s on.

But how could you not like it . I think that the only people that would complain are the sort of people that go looking for things to complain about because they are moaning cnuts. I mean its already happened , like 40 years ago, we loved it then and it hasnt changed . Probly the only thing I could say is a bit rude are some of the close up tight knickers shots but we get that of TV adds now too ( and I aint complaining ) , tight pants , thigh gap shot and tits everywhere .... on a feckin carpet add . Its all about expectations , I mean its fine to wear speedo's at the pool or beach , no one gives a fuck , but wear thenm in the supermarket ( I didnt :D ) and you get a ride in the police car .
Benny Hill and Ronnie Barker would have to be my fave comedians........I bet the queen watches them :xd:
Sometimes I talk to myself ... and we both have a good laugh
