I'm considering going to this in 2010. I shall go in full Radio 4 regalia, I think.
Seriously good new music, with podcast presented by Tom Ravenscroft.

Best thing on last week's Jools (excluding Smokey Robinson, of course).
We visited this yesterday, although we only walked around the parade ground and the gun platform (which you can access free of charge). Honestly, Eastbourne should make more fuss about this building – it's utterly splendid and the external appearance gives no clue to what is inside.

Article on the Waldseemuller map.
I've used the baking soda and white (distilled malt) vinegar tricks before, with some success. My car took a direct hit from Small Boy With Norovirus and, although I've used lots of commercial products, the odour is lingering, rather unpleasantly.

Winter vomiting disease. Winter poo like there is no tomorrow disease. Winter feel like utter crap disease. Winter how can three people manage to do all this in the bathroom simultaneously disease. Contagious for 48 hours, apparently.

Too silly for words.
I didn't know that Ralph (Mr Upton to you) had died, although I did know that he hadn't the best of health. I'd met him a couple of times when purchasing pumpkins and squashes from his door (and also knew his son Andy when he was postmaster in my parent's village). I wonder what the long term future for the pumpkin patch is?
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard (not known for being left wing) suggests that rumours of the Dollar's death may be premature.
