I wouldn't imagine so - at least not with the newspaper. I think I saw something somewhere about him regretting the work he did, type-casting and all, but not sure. Another guy who did well with it was Brian Aris: I think he went off to the States...
I never see those papers anymore - they certainly do come here during the tourist season, but that's probably the only time. I no longer have a reason to look, so I don't bother.
To be honest, beaches and broads have swapped places in my imagination with dancers (ballet) and rehearsal studios etc. and other city locations that I'll probably never see. Unless someone makes me a good offer for the apartment, but for that to happen I'd have to advertise it, then I'd probably change my mind at the first serious buyer. Nothin' new... maybe next year something positive will happen right out of the blue; I like blue, and the blues - musically speaking - even more so. Bloody recesssion. Nobody's buying anything here.
Saw some shots of Sydney on tv today, thought it looked beautiful but can't remember the context. Nothing to do with fireworks, though. Fortunate chap: you live in a wonderfully visual place, but I expect that being familar, it loses its power to charm you, perhaps? I think I remember about Sydney: it couild have been on a programme about migtrating birds called Earthflight, I think. Amazing photography.
Greetings for 2013!
