Long time passing

Pete Seeger died today. He was 93. He co-wrote Where Have All the Flowers Gone?, which, coincidentally, has been stuck in my head since hearing it on Saturday morning. His last public performance was last September! What an extraordinary man. … Continue reading

Blood and water

Ah, Nicktor Night. They come round so soon. Hopefully we’ll not miss them too much when the extension work starts. At the Albion, we decided to mix things up a bit because Nicktor had had ham, egg and chips for … Continue reading

GSE!

This little piggy went ballistic

It was Sidney’s birthday today. Eleven years old. She might get to 5,000 miles on the clock, soon…or so Nicktor reckons. Speaking of whom, he came over tonight for the usual movie and dinner. Now that we regularly go to … Continue reading

Almost a big nothing

Alas, I have no Doha update today. For reasons I am not yet aware of, Mirinda wasn’t able to talk tonight. I have, however, seen a photograph of Ben (on Facebook) on a camel, so their trip to the desert … Continue reading

Tonight, just as Nicktor and I left the Albion after a lovely dinner and couple of pints, the heavens opened up and showered us in very heavy rain. There was thunder, lightning and torrential, very unEnglish rain. We managed to … Continue reading
