Well, I am working on this sorting out and throwing out (giving away, selling, whatever) thing, because I don't want our children to have to deal with it. I am only 55, and my old fart is 62, but you never know... My mom died, and Dad had trouble finding paperwork he needed, and his house was a mess, full of stuff he wouldn`t use. Also, as your children leave home and you grow older, you should realize that you don`t need 3/4 of the crap you have spent 30 years accumulating.

the persona of Clarkson is a monstrous twat- but I am sure the man is perfectly pleasant (and very reasonable- it peeks through occasionally).
Someone I know worked for Top Gear for a day - apparently they often hire people locally when filming. There's a lot of stuff to be done off-camera. So he saw the presenters off camera for hours. Clarkson was different (and much more pleasant) off camera - he`s playing a role because it`s part of his job. The friendship and messing about between the presenters is real though - they do it off camera too.
It`s strange that anyone takes anything his persona says seriously, particularly after he`s repeatedly said that nobody should.
