end of the avenue
I was saddened today by the news that Inspector Sands is to end Casino Avenue this week
. His wonderful way with words was the inspiration for What was the score?
when whilst searching for alternative Charlton observations after I left London for Chicago, I first stumbled into Casino Avenue
and the world of blogging in the winter of 2004.Casino Avenue
was my go-to page for local events, intelligent comment and debate and sadly it will be a severed link to my old life back in South East London. I fully empathise with his reasons because I have noticed recently after 27 months of writing a blog that inspiration, time and enjoyment need to come together and that is often a big ask. The good news is that the Inspector will still be appearing on All Quiet In The East Stand
Something that did cheer me today was the long hyped appearance of Meredith Vieira
on the Today
show. The NBC morning show has long been my company whilst shaving and showering each morning and its been rather lacklustre since previous co-host Katie Couric left for the CBS
early evening news. For those of you who haven't a clue what I'm babbling on about, basically Meredith used to do the American version of Who wants to be a Millionaire
and now she is the new bird on morning TV. It means something to me, ok?
