Tom's midnight garden

Nothing stands still, except in our memory.

As said in Tom’s Midnight Garden (1958), the much-loved children’s fantasy book written by Philippa Pearce that I just finished reading. Thanks to my sister who got it for me for Christmas.

Line(s) of the Day #Gladiators

Gladiators TV show

Do you feel the power of the Gladiators?
Can you face the challenge of the champions?
Do you have the courage of a hero?
Do you have the will and the skill?

Taken from the opening lyrics to the theme tune of the Gladiators theme tune. The show about regular members of the public coming up against elite level athletes in different events became hugely popular. Debuting in the UK in 1992, the show featured 34 gladiators in its eight-year run, including my favourites of Wolf and Jet. A remake of the show in 2008 was a failure and cancelled after two series.
