I couldn't let the passing of Sidney Poitier go without a word or two.
A magnificent actor, and his role in To Sir With Love, was for many people of my generation, a seminal moment in growing up.
A very moving performance, and it still brings tears to my eyes near the end.
Also, for almost every teenage boy at that time, a total falling in love / lust with the gorgeous Judy Geeson who also performed perfectly, the coy, wonderful genuine looks in her face and eyes, not to mention...
But I digress!
Sidny Poitier was one of the very best of his generation, in many roles, particularly 'In the Heat of the Night' as 'Mr Tibbs'
A true loss.
A blog, mostly about special moments and things that have happened in my life or events that I find special.
Most will be happy to know that they are NOT political!
Some are simple short memories, others more profound. They are all true however, no embelishment.
Let me try again

The simplest, though slightly technical way, is to copy the URL at the top of your browser, Which will show as http://www.billdunblane.com/blog/xxx (the xxx end part is the title of the individual blog) and post it wherever you want. In Facebook, Twitter or any other social media, or for use in an email. It is a unique address for that page. I'm working with Weebly on having simple links on individual blogs, but at present only the Twitter one appears to be working. That should be resolved shortly.
