Twelve years of having to update a website on an almost daily basis is enough to put anyone off having a presence on the web. But here I go again… They tell me it’s all about creativity and self-expression. But perhaps it might just be a good way for me to keep friends and interested parties up to date with my world.
In my former existence I made friends and contacts all over the world…but then the problem became ‘how do I keep in touch with these fabulous people?’ As an evangelistic Facebook-hater, that way of keeping in touch was never going to work for me so perhaps ‘The Best Judge’ will be part of the solution.
Whereas most blogs are created by self-obsessed people convinced that the world needs to read about the minutae of their daily lives, ‘The Best Judge’ is…..well, just the same really!
So, in the words of Plato..(or was it Jonathan Fagerlund)…Hello, hello, hello, here I am, welcome to my life!
The Best Judge is inspired by Claire Houghton, a character from the legendary Australian Television Series ‘Number 96’. Actress Thelma Scott brought the role to life and left a major impression on at least one teenage boy in the early 70s! 😉
Claire is described on the official Number 96 website thusly….
Claire HOUGHTON, of Point Piper's social set, is the interfering mother of Rodney and Beverly. She is good friends with Maggie Cameron, Jack Sellars, Ozzie and Rita Rheingold and Nick Brent, but rarely has a kind word for the Paddington area in which Bev resides. Claire owns a pet poodle named Serena. Claire has a intense affair with her daughter's new husband Earl Goodman, and then Carlo Lenzi, who has designs on her money. Several years later, Claire takes on young Grant Chandler as a chauffeur and gigolo, later sponsoring his musical aspirations. Portrayed by Thelma Scott.
