When I worked at ITN Wells Street in the 80's and early 90's the place to go for fresh Fruit and Veg' was Berwick Street Market, yesterday I was in the area again and like so much of London it's a shadow of its former glory/being redeveloped.
It's got a rich history and I spotted a plaque to Jessie Matthews - a British stage star

I suppose this is as much about me maturing - like a fine wine but there is that phrased you don't know what you've got (until you lose it)

New Day - New Paper
Okay, so I do wish New Day the best but yesterday on first impressions (free then moving to 25p per copy and then 50p) I don't think I'll be going out of my way to read it, oddly sounding like a Christian Evangelist pamphlet it felt very light on 'actual' news even when compared with the always free Metro and not a patch on the i - I'm not sure if it's aimed at that same sector but if so they'd have done far better to buy it when it was up for grabs.
Red Sky at Night?
