Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (2016)- TV Review

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is a 2016 series based (extremely) loosely on the Douglas Adams novels that feature the title character. It would be easy to jump to the conclusion that the name is the only link to the source material, as, aside from vague references to a couple of plot points from the books, this is an original story, set in a completely different timeline. 876 more words

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Either I have no sense of humor, or I have a very high sense of humor. I saw the jokes, but they weren’t funny. It got to the point where I just skimmed through some of the story just to finish the book. 37 more words

#42 Beinn Chabhair – May 2016 (but not #43 and #44)

Weather and other commitments prevented Cyril and me from resuming Munroing until May in 2016. So I suggested that we try for 3 Munros – Beinn Chabhair (Ben Chav-ir; OS 50 or 56; NN367179) which was to have been the third following An Caisteal and Beinn a’ Chroin. 888 more words
