    I did the whole metro thing today. A nice sunny day out on my own. Drove to Tallawong. Parked. Queued up with the throngs. Caught the Metro to Chatswood, and then the snail train double decker to Wynyard. Then spent a few hours around Darling Harbour and the newly built Darling Quarter (where the old Entertainment Centre was. Gee how that area has changed!! I had a sensational lunch in a little indoor food court in Chinatown that I never even knew existed until I stumbled across it today. Packed to the hilt, with probably 12-15 little Asian food outlets of all types. A really buzzing place. The Metro is ******* impressive. Fast, smooth and efficient. Sure there were some teething problems today, but over 100 000 people used it on its first day. The govt and those at north west metro handled everything so well. Huge crowds at Chatswood were dispersed quickly upon each train arrival. Don't believe any of the negative shite on social media platforms from today. It's an impressive system and will be a huge bonus to us in the Hills once it is up and fully operational (about 3-6 months).

    PS I've posted once or twice being forced to use the Big W self service check out.... with 6 pillows, two hoses and numerous other items. Just the memory of that experience makes me feel

    Walked to the new Metro station from home...and had lunch out at Rouse Hill! The rail service is impressive....and the Rouse Hill centre, which I'd only ever seen from the main road, had a nice vibe to it (even though it was REALLY busy, due to the train's opening).

    So the Verve have finally settled with Mick and Keef over the royalties to Bitter Sweet Symphony. https://www.itv.com/news/2019-05-24/the-verve-reach-deal-with-rolling-stones-over-royalties-on-hit-90s-single-bitter-sweet-symphony/ When the song was released the Stones sued for copyright infringement based on it using a sample of Stones track 'The Last Time'. So the story goes, the Stone Manager at the time in the 90's (now dead) agreed that they could use so many seconds based on a 50/50 royalties split. As soon as the song was released and took off the Stones management said sorry, you used a few seconds too much, we're taking 100%. The agreement as far as I am aware will only count towards future royalties of course, what exists from the last 20 years will sit in Mick and Keefs bank accounts, I can't see them paying back 20 years worth somehow. I have always thought that Mick has worked the money side of things out very well over the years, tight arse mean bastards the both of them I suspect. I love the Stones, but as people I have never thought much of both of them, the way they treated Brian Jones was despicable (Charlie Watts agrees with that view), and Richard's jealously push Mick Taylor out. Happy for Richard Ashcroft.
