We are just 5000 short of a million visitors at our site and have just updated it. This was done by my stepson Soren Wagner on SEO principals. Thanks mate! SEO can lead to a slightly stilted prose style but hopefully we have avoided this by inspired hard work. We have dropped our usual news about celebrities who came by the shop (Gok Wan, Paul Merton, Victoria Coren, Hanif Kureishi, Jonathan Meades, Michael Gambon, Anastasia Hille, Hari Kunzru, Sebastian Coe, Romola Garai, Sandi Toksvig, Simon Callow, David Robb -the Downton doctor) because that's just boasting and in that fickle way celebs have they have all moved on (except the redoubtable Ben Okri and snow haired fearless reporter John Simpson.) So now 'News and Brags' reads thus (if you can't be bothered to read it now it's on our website for many moons): "We have bought several large collections in the latter half of this year - they will be going out all through 2014. We are only half way through the Donald Rudd collection of .. ...

Latest West End Gossip Dusty Springfield MUSICAL - WEST END 2014? Baz from The Daily Mail reports that a musical based on the life of Dusty Springfield is being planned to open in the West End next year. Written by Sandi Toksvig and produced by Vicki Wickham and David Ian. Vicki Wickham said: It would be a proper musical, not a jukebox show, and would deal with the light and dark side of Dusty's personality." Dusty Springfield's hits include Son Of A Preacher Man, I Only Want To Be With You, Wishin' And Hopin', and Yesterday When I Was Young.
I'm not saying I'm perfect. (If only!) I'll need an editor sometimes to tell me when a line made sense in my dreamy over-medicated head but not to anyone else. But the Chron keeps telling us how good art is for the local economy, not how good art is for art. And reporting uncritically on arts events that have nothing to do with art like the Althorp Literary Festival. The bill for that little shindig offers the county such literary giants as Michael Palin and Sandi Toksvig and charges £15 entrance fee. I wrote to the Chron last night, told them the Earl had lined up a poor bunch of writing talent and offered to be the link-man between him and some real proper hardcore scribblers. So far I've heard nothing. George Orwell said, “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed. Everything else is public relations.” Must the purpose of the Chron always be to sell a neutered version of the arts to those who aren't really interested in them? Must the honest truth always be sacrificed because ...

Why are so many female comedians *** Ellen, Margaret Cho, Sandi Toksvig, Sue Perkins - No problem, just an observation that I find curious.
Brace yourself for another wave of moral indignation in defence of “Our Kate” – TV and radio presenter Sandi Toksvig has ruffled feathers by suggesting the Duchess of Cambridge has no opinions and is “very Jane Austen”.
The Queens Commonwealth Charter is said to reject all forms of discrimination, implicitly suggesting *** rights under 'other grounds'. This is alleged as a watershed for LGBTQ progress. But my worry is the ambivalence in the semantics may allow Commonwealth officials to interpret the clause as including a right to oppose *** which circumvents the meaning and placates the homophobic Commonwealth majority. Sandi Toksvig is also correct in her positioning that Kate Middleton lacks any real identity beyond her husband (apart from some suggestion of the Middleton's reputation as particularly successful parvenus). What exactly is the monarchy suggesting in terms of progress? After 2012 and the arrival of a royal baby this year, I'm sick of how acceptable this trite, obsolescent organisation is.
Sue Perkins, Sandi Toksvig and Cal Wilson are all legends.

Had a really great night out last night, we went to the Maidstone TV Studios and watched Jo Brands new panel show being filmed. She is so funny but I think most of it will be cut as it was far too rude to go on air at 7pm! The teams were Barry Cryer & Sandi Toksvig and Rebecca Front and Chris Ramsey. I didn't know who the last 2 were but recognised them as soon as I saw them. It was really great fun and free. Can't get much better than that. I think the show: Jo Brands Great Wall of Comedy will be a bit lame, as the teams had to guess what happened in really old sit coms and they didn't really know any they were a bit obscure! Chris Ramsey wasn't even born when they were 1st shown. But the stories they all told were hilarious!
