So it's come around again, that special Saturday in May..... what we have all been waiting for Bouncy... no not the FA Cup final, not even the Europa Final or the first balmy days of summer! Nope, it's the Saturday all nighters of the wonderful Eurovision Fantastic

Some questions therefore ::

  • Are we all looking forward to it
  • Do you have a favourite song
  • Do you think the UK have now lost what little support they have had for the last 25 years
  • Have you all got the extra wine and Vodka in ready
  • Are we going to see anything worth downloading or even remembering 
  • Are we going to be allowed to enter after next year given we have burnt all the bridges we took years to build
  • Does anyone actually care

Sorry used to watch Eurovision many years ago but got bored with the whole business when it was clear we were unlikely to ever win again. It's become way too political and we've definitely burned too many bridges.

However, I know many people love it and like @darrengf have parties to celebrate and enjoy it. I've a number of friends who never miss it. While no longer to my taste, I can appreciate it brings pleasure to so many others. So enjoy @darrengf and anyone else who watches every year and wouldn't miss it.

Me, I'll be catching up on my recordings 😊

Much better quality of the gem @Anonymous and I actually enjoyed watching Riverdance again although not as enthralled as I was the first time I saw it.

Come Saturday, I will either be getting aquainted with folks down at The Black Dog or finding a good film on Netflix or Film 4 Happy Dance

Britain's Got Talent @Cleoriff yes you are right , no talent which is why most of the acts (?Bang) are from overseas. Why are they even allowed on the show at all.Irritates the hell out of me!!!Rolleys

@AnonymousI have bookmarked that to watch one afternoon instead of the endless dross on daytime TV. triumph

BGT Occasionally a gem shines through though @jonsie. The rest I watch as the appallingly bad acts make me laugh.

As for the film 'Senna'...as you know he is my all time favourite driver, so I have watched the film/documentary more times that I care to mention

I have also watched Rush, Life in the Limit, Weekend of a Champion, and the 1966 film Grand Prix. 

Of course there are also documentaries about most of the drivers past and present and they have also been watched.

Sad to say I have no interest in Schumacher. He may be a legend in the eyes of some, though I happen to think he cheated his way to two of his titles.

I would also say he is revered more now due to his tragic skiing accident than his F1 career. People have very short memories in my opinion.

On that extremely inflammatory and controversial note I will leave that there. Happy Dance

Every year we get together and have a Eurovision party, it is great!!

I haven't been following it live in many years, but will tune in via YouTube later. slight_smile I've been following the news though as we have our Saara Aalto (you saw her in the British X-Factor earlier) representing my country and I quite like her. I need to listen to the other songs too that got through to the finals! Happy Dance

Yes Sarah Aalto has a brilliant voice and and even better command of a multitude of foreign languages. She was on ITV this morning running few a few phrases... in at least 10 different languages @Marjo

Now I might actually watch some Eurovision if Saara Aalto is representing Finland. I loved her voice and so wanted her to win X Factor though I knew it was unlikely as she isn't British.
