Peggy's best friend is 104 and still going.

Jill's best friend was born in 1931 according to WP, so will turn 93
sometime in 2024.

Christine's bestie is similarly about to turn 90.

Other besties:
Brian: b 30 June 1943 so will be a sprightly 81
Shula: b 22 October 1943 (same).
Tony: a Time Lord on his father's side so immortal. Tom is also a Time
Lord in the same line.
David: Count of Waldeck-Limpburg so also immortal as long as he keeps out
of the light and stays out of the way when there's fencing being erected.
Eddie: Younger than me, what you on about?

Remember she is married to Charles Collingwood, alias Brian. I remember
quite a few years (decades is it now?) going to a something featuring
the two of them (I think it was in outer London somewhere?), with
another of this parish (I think she bought the tickets and I paid her,
or something like that), which we enjoyed.

Though he's backed off a bit, Brian still seems fairly prominent. Though
of course there's no reason to assume their characters will remain of
similar prominence, just because their BFs are connected.

I was listening to The Archers at 70 - Farming Today the other night
and, yes I really am that far behind with some of my listening.
Anyway, Jeremy Howe was explaining how(e) they plot storylines far
into the future - his example was that Brexit (sorry to use the
B-word) was not just an event but will a five-year arc for the show.

My preference, which I believe I have expressed before, many years
ago, would be to have art as an imitation of life. In real life,
people drop dead from a heart attack or fall under a bus; they come in
to work one morning and suddenly explode with "take this job and shove
it - I don't work here any more"; they become victims of crime or
illness and everything around them changes instantly and irrevocably.

I would so love it if The Archers were bold enough to follow that sort
of path. When an actor dies, leaves, is changed in someway, the
storyline swerves in response. But I suppose that the juggernaut that
is the five-year plan will just keep chugging remorselessly on.

How can they have a 5 year story arc for Brexit when nobody knew (and
still doesn't) how it will end up ?
This is not to do with whether it was right or wrong (although we can
guess what the Beeb's view of that is). None of the dire predictions of
collapse of sterling, mass unemployment etc happened. Neither did we cut
immigration (far from it) or do anything else that was claimed as a
benefit.
There are some irritations which affect some people more than others,
but overall life has pretty much gone on as before and we are not doing
much worse GDP wise than the rest of the EU.
We bounced back out of lockdown faster, have had a disastrous recent
period thanks to Truss, OBR, BoE, QE etc, but today's forecast in the
times starts as follows:

The UK economy is set to grow more quickly than France in coming years,
making it almost 20 per cent larger by 2038, and narrowing the gap with
Germany.

According to this year’s world economic league table from the Centre for
Economics and Business Research, the UK is likely to maintain its
position as the sixth-largest global economy.

The UK economy is expected to be 10.2 per cent larger than France in
2033, this is forecast to increase to 19.9 per cent by 2038. In that
same period, the gap between the UK and Germany — which is nearly a
third larger than the UK — is expected to narrow slightly to 28.8 per cent.

If you're referring to the post below, I did, but to be precise I was
reporting what was in the DT.

That was certainly the case until recently. Our local Tesco has petrol
at £1.379 and diesel is only 5p more. Just a few weeks ago it was £1.80ish.

And DT thinks household fuel bills will fall by £500
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2023/05/19/ftse-100-markets-news-live-uk-semiconductor-strategy-japan/

Household energy bills are expected to fall by an average £500 from July
in a sign that Vladimir Putin's attempt to "weaponise" Russia's gas
supplies has failed.

A typical household's energy bill will drop to the annual equivalent of
£2,053 between July and September, according to a closely-watched
forecast by Cornwall Insight. The forecast is based on a predicted
change to the energy price cap.

It will mark the first time energy bills have fallen in almost three
years, as European gas prices continue to tumble from the highs reached
last year following Putin's attack on Ukraine.

Regulator Ofgem set the price cap at £3,280 for March to June, down from
a high of £4,279 in the previous three months.

Interestingly, petrol at our local Tesco is once again down to 1.379 and
the current typical household is currently £1834 increasing to £1928, so
they were wrong because they were too pessimistic.

We are currently paying £130/month which covers our annual Gas and
Electricity even before you consider our FIT payments.

Harrow, IIRC, I stayed with another umra household nearby.
I recall John Otway wandered into the bar (where we were waiting for other
umrats), looking a bit lost, and said "John Otway?" to me. I refrained from
making the obvious remark, and told him where he was performing that night
while pointing at a poster on the wall.

Having watched several of his show reels recently, he's done his share of
fencing over the years. I suppose he learnt it at school. My father did,
and was called in to fence for a film, when he was at college. The fight
was cut from the film.

They did that, after Julia Pargetter's friend, Mary Wimbush, died. Mary
died suddenly, immediately after recording an episode of TA and, the
following morning, Julia was found dead in her bed. IIRC, Julia had
been in the middle of directing (or, possibly, starring in) the
Christmas show, so they allowed Ambridge to share the shock and chaos of
reorganising it, rather than absorbing all the problems off stage.

Yes, they live in a small village in Hampshire. Apparently Judy Bennett
was starting to find the trek up to Birmingham was a bit more than she
wanted to do[1], especially as it's not that often that Shula and Brian
are involved in the same storylines, so Judy and Charles's trips to
Birmingham didn't often coincide.

Although being much the same age as Judy, Brian is clearly happy to keep
going. I have no idea whether this is because he's in better physical
shape than she is, or simply that he enjoys it more than she does.

[1] Given recent events in Ambridge, it may be that she's decided she's
happy to visit occasionally.
