Whilst I am still undecided of whether or not to start blogging regularly or not I found something blog worthy today…
Some of you (mainly the old ones) will remember an iconic film called Get Carter. There is (was) a car park in Gateshead, Trinity Square, that was made famous when it was used as a location in the film. It was known locally as ‘The Get Carter Car Park’ which I think you will agree, rolls of the tongue much easier than Trinity Park….. *rolls eyes*
The car park was also of interest to those who like the brutalist architecture style.
Anyway… demolition started on the car park at the end of July and was expected to take about eight weeks. The clear up is in its almost final stages now and the local council are thinking of offering bits of the car park to the public. I hope it small bits… I think I might like a bit of ‘Get Carter Car Park’ memorabilia….

In other news, the line up for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing has been announced. I know, some of you are rolling your eyes and wondering how I could entertain such tripe on my television. However, I quite like it usually, but looking at the smattering of ‘celebs’ for this season I don’t see anyone that I think I’d enjoy watching.
What do you think? Anne Widdecombe looks like she might lack the grace required and Peter Shilton is going to have two left (goal keeping genius) feet… Felicity Kendal might be good. She looks amazing…
Lastly I found something that might make the men want to get their groove on….
