Wednesday:Gigs, Smoking, deadline & mobile TV

Are you a smoker?
From the summer of 2007 smoking will be banned in all pub, clubs and restaurants. This is the most radical option that Parliament could have taken as there was strong support for allowing smoking to continue in private clubs. Get the full story from the BBC by following the link above.

On the plus points at least you won't smell like an ashtray going to the pub; but we predict (following the example of the Irish) an usurge in outdoor smoking areas with lots of patio heaters to keep the smokers happy.

Deadline day for the March edition of Suited and Booted is this Friday (17th Feb)!
Make sure you are in in it! Email your event details to

Events today in the West Dorset & South Somerset area

They're gonna get you whatever happens!
Fine warning over TV on mobiles
A trial found that nearly 80% would subscribe to a mobile TV servicePeople who watch TV on mobile phones or computers could face a £1,000 fine unless they have a £126.50 TV licence.
An increasing number of TV shows and repeats are being shown on portable devices as well as standard TV sets.

But shows broadcast on any device at the same time as they appear on TV are governed by standard licensing laws, a TV Licensing spokesman said.

"Most who watch TV on a mobile phone or computer also own a TV and are already covered by an existing licence."

"But those who only use their computer, for example, to watch TV broadcasts will need to ensure they are properly licensed."

Unless they visit your home to monitor what you download on the internet how the hell are they going to know? Doh! I just realised they already do that anyway! Big Brother IS watching you.

Have a great day!
