You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows

A misty gloomy day to start tbe year. Most of the day the church was either completely shrouded in mist and drizzle or just vaguely silhouetted against a grey background. Finally, about half an hour before dark, the mist lifted enough for a clear view of the weather vane.

The weather vane even had a couple of Starlings on it, resting before going to roost.

Nice quote from Bob Dylan, who I shall be seeing in concert in May, for the umpteenth time.

Where are you seeing him? I've been a fan sinc he appeared in a BBC play, wandering around with his guitar and mouth organ. A great fuss because the Beeb had pain an american a few hundred pounds to come over! but the time they are a changin.

Madhouse on Castle Street is a British television play, broadcast by BBC Television on the evening of 13 January 1963, as part of the Sunday Night Play strand. It was written by Evan Jones and directed by Philip Saville. The production featured the young American folk music singer Bob Dylan, who soon became a major musical star.

The play was made with electronic video cameras, although recorded onto film rather than tape. The only known copy of the play was junked in 1968, as was the standard practice of the time, despite the fact that Dylan and lead actor David Warner were by then famous. Although extensive searches have been made by the BBC, only partial audio recordings of four songs sung by Dylan survive.
