As a self-confessed bear of very little brain, Winnie-the-Pooh has done very well in life. And after having his own books, TV series, and two major films in the past two years alone, the ever popular fictional bear has now got his paws on the ultimate honour: His own national day. Winnie-The-Pooh Day is officially today, with the date chosen to mark the birthday of author AA Milne, who based his books on his son Christopher Robin and his stuffed toy animals.

0 Post a comment Sunday, 13 January 2019 - Entertainment I often sit at the desk and just let the mind wander. Sometimes I come up with a brilliant line for a poem and sometimes I might have an idea for a column. But, more than likely, l will just doze off.The other day I was just thinking, as I often do, about Strand Street, and the way things were in the old days. I started work in the Street in January 1962, 57 years ago. I was 22, and I’m now 79. Where have those years gone?I had been working in the office of the Lake Road abattoir for a weekly wage of £8, and I would now be earning £8/10s, or in today’s money, £8.50p.

Hannah Yasharoff USA TODAY Published 8:01 AM EST Nov 6, 2018 Fifteen years later, "Love Actually" is still all around. The Christmas-centric rom-com hit theaters on Nov. 7, 2003, and warmed all of our cold, cynical hearts with a myriad of intersecting love stories. "It seems to me that love is everywhere," the British prime minister (Hugh Grant) says in the opening voiceover. "Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there: fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."
