Daily Mail article about the making of the King's Speech and how they tried to get the period detail right in various locations. I agree with Logue's great aunts who said he'd never have called the Duke of York by his Christian name.
Pup and I went to Pets supermarket today. Great success. He was so nervous at first that I put him in a trolley with his rug where he was much admired by all the fellow shoppers. Owing to all this socialising, we took a long time finding, among other things: new toys, anti-chew spray, outdoor plant anti-animal spray, and, most useful, a mega-heavy ceramic water bowl for Otto who liked to take his stainless-steel bowl to bed, spilling his drinking water all over the room. He enjoyed all the attention in the supermarket and was fascinated by the live hamsters. Short of a real hamster, the most successful toy I bought seems to be a rubber ball that squeaks. No, I'm not spoiling him, honestly. (He's now trying to eat the anti-chew spray bottle)
