Welcome to today's six degrees of separation.
Babbitt is one of a number of alloys used in bearing metal. When someone says alloy to me I immediately think of copper and Brass.
Brass brings to mind the well known saying 'where there's muck there's brass' which was the main premise centred around the old TV show called Brass and staring Timothy West.
Timothy West is famously married to Prunella Scales who I can not think of without smiling fondly when I remember her wonderful portrayal as Sybil Fawlty in Fawlty Towers.
The sitcom is set in Torquay and tells the tale of Sybil and her down trodden husband Basil as they try to run a guest house. This would work perfectly if it wasn't for the guests who Basil finds particularly difficult to deal with.
Only twelve episodes of Fawlty Towers were ever made and it was written by the real life husband and wife team of John Cleese and Connie Booth.
Booth is no longer an actress of writer and is now a trained psychotherapist. This was a very similar career path to ex not the nine o clock news writer and actress Pamela Stephenson.
And so today we have somehow found our way from Babbitt to Pamela Stephenson in just six degrees of separation.
